You know whose coming for a visit Shoko? Who, Mrs. Claus is running away from home? It’s Sammy of One Spoiled Cat. He is flying around the world and will be stopping here for a visit. When? He’s here Shoko. Sammy!! You look refreshed. The cold air rushing by your ears must sound like an ocean but feeling it on your furry face would be awesome. Sammy welcome to our house, have some dried nip from the garden. Mom mixed it with silvervine. It’s a trip without a balloon, MOL Your operating the Hot Air Balloon so need all your faculties about you. OK….just let me get a sniff and we’ll look about Prince George.
Look….Even Cow Kitty came to see you off, You are an icon around here Sammy. We talk of you often and always yell, “SAMMY” before we eat any bacon we get. Bye Shoko and Sammy, have a great time. Quit yakking at Sammy and let them take off, Cow Kitty.
Up, up and away we go. There’s a moose for you. It’s a female that probably lives among the trees going up to UNBC. UNBC is the University of Northern British Columbia. maybe we’ll fly over it. This is the Fraser River, where mom would walk Kali when they lived in the other house. They walked along the beach beside the river. Mom saw 2 beavers swimming about a foot and a half from Kali. Kali was busy getting a drink and didn’t notice them. A typical Kali move. This park is Ft. George Park.
I know it’s really cold tonight Sammy. The weatherman said -30C. A wee bit nippy ole pal. This is UNBC, Sammy. Our pride and joy. Do you see the yellow trees. These are pines that were killed when the north was inundated with Pine Beetles a few years back. What a loss.
See down there and to your left is downtown Prince George. I was born on the streets of Prince George. I think that’s why loud peeps don’t turn my crank now. You can see in the background the pulp mills. Prince George was known for its pulp mills at one time. The mills had many workers and was the major industry here. The town stunk of sulphur which is used in the process. It was a horrible smell mom said but the townsfolk said it was the, *smell of money.* Isn’t this a beautiful mountain and just on the outskirts of town.
Oh look Sammy it’s the Northern Lights. When we get away from the downtown area we get to see them but only when the sky is clear. Sammy, you’re looking rather cold. Let’s go back home and you can get warmed up before you are off to the next town to visit. We love ya Sammy and Kali wants to kiss you for just being you. I’m not the mushy sort like Kali but you mean the world to me Sammy. I am delighted you came to visit our frozen neck of the woods.
Kali spent the morning over at Buddy’s place, Tomcat Commentary by Tim. They had a celebration for Kali on her 14th Gotcha Day. I hear everything is still going strong. We plan to go back there after this little get together for Kali.
I have to wish you Happy Gotcha Day Kali. You are the bestest of sisters. You put up with me and that’s no easy task. I’ve heard I can be stubborn and pig headed….sorry my pig friends. Kali rolls her eyes and puts her nose to Shoko’s in a nose kiss.
Oh Buddy, you came to our intimate get together….come on in my sweet Blue Boy.
We lost a member of Blogville a few weeks ago, this is a tribute to one of the bestest woofies we had the pleasure of knowing. We never met him in woofie/kitty style but communicating with Forrest was fun and so informative. We will carry loving thoughts for you and your family in our hearts Forrest. When we think of you we will relax and purr. Forrest we are waving to you from our wee corner of Canada. You are among the other great furry friends that have graced us with their laughter and fun selves and then silently departed. We blow you a kiss and hope your path will be filled with love always. Please drop by All Fur One and One Fur All and let Bev know how you feel. Simply click on her blog name.
Today was wonderful. Shoko went outside and played with Cow-Kitty and left me alone all day. So I did what came naturally. Dad came home with a picture of Buddy Bud for me to cuddle, I couldn’t help but kiss my main man. Caturday is Artsy Day on Athena and Marie’s blog. Simply click on their name and looky see all the anipals in their latest artsy décor of themselves. Here is my entry for this week. See ya soon my friends.
