Now, For Something a Little More Familiar

KALI…..ORANGE
NELLIE…..GREEN
SHOKO…..BLACK

Mom and dad checked the hotel room  a few times to make sure they didn’t leave anything behind.  Then it was off to Heathrow Airport.  Peeps had told mom it was a very hard airport to get through as it was huge.  It was very large but staff at the airport helped mom, so going through security was much easier.  They were even early for the plane so looked at various shops.                                                               Heathrow is very large with much walking.

The plane ride to Vancouver was very similar to the plane ride to Paris.  So I won’t bore you  with details.  When mom saw the sands of the beach near UBC (University of British Columbia), she got very excited.                                                                          We are sorry about the poor quality of the photo but the plane wasn’t all that close to the beach. MOL

Upon landing at Vancouver Airport,  dad was grabbing the luggage off the carousel when mom came moseying along to remind dad what our luggage looked like.  Talk about giving the, “evil eye!”  Dad ‘s look could have stopped a Canada Goose  in mid honk!                                                                   

When mom and dad got into their motel room, mom called Barb co-author of, “Nellie, On The Edge.”  Barb was not far away and came over to the motel room.                                                                            They chatted and laughed and then figured it was time to go see a special lady and have supper.  Off they went to Barb’s new townhouse.  Mom loved the townhouse  except for the many stairs but Barb said all this walking is paying off.  She had become  a few pounds lighter.  When they got to the livingroom…..there was Nellie, just hangin’ out.  

                                                      Can you hear Nellie saying….”It’s Shoko and Kali’s mom and dad…so where is mes protégé, the little devil?”

You left her at home!  Mes will just have to go visit her then.                                                                        Me’s ready for a nap now.

At this point Barb told mom and dad she made a pot roast with all the trimmings for dinner.  They all charged into the kitchen.  Although mom and dad were not very hungry as it was 3am in London.  If mom is going to have beef, she wants pot roast….this is her favourite beef meal.  What a scrumptious meal.  Sorry no pictures.   If we were home, mom would have asked for a kitty bag. MOL

Time to return to the motel.  Nellie was getting ready for a snooze so mom and dad were quiet and let Nellie snuggle down.                                                                          These are the last pictures of Nellie.  It was her time to leave for the Rainbow Bridge.  We were so fortunate to  know this lovely Queen.

Mom and dad left for Prince George the next morning.  I was delighted to see mom and wouldn’t leave her alone all night.  I whacked her on the head when she fell asleep.  I wanted loves.  Kali wouldn’t look at mom but chattered away to dad.  Three days later Kali decided mom was ok after all.

We hope you enjoyed mom and dad’s jaunt to the old country.  They brought back a virus with them and were laid up for three weeks after arriving home but they’re fine now.

Thank you to all the wonderful bloggers mom and dad visited.  You are all beautiful and creative peeps.

Friday Fill-Ins

Before we get started let’s take a minute and honour Butter Lovin Boomer from Da Tabbies of Trout Towne.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                                                           I’ll see you again someday Boomer.                                                                     May your steps be light and  the butter lead your way home Boomer.

Boomer aka Bum, was born on May 1 of 1998.  He walked off into the sunset with St. Francis of Assisi on March 7, 2017.  Boomer lived for 19 years!  That is some life span my friend. He must’ve had a mission.


Now, let’s get on with the Friday fill-ins co-hosted by Ellen Of 15 and Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

I will answer the first 2 sentences and Shoko will tackle the last 2 sentences
1. I hope …BLUE BLOODS….. gets renewed for another season.   MOM IS SO HAPPY WATCHING TOM SELLECK THAT IT WOULD UPSET HER IF IT WERE CANCELLED.  I LIKE IT WHEN MOM IS HAPPY.

2. My first crush was…..GAGE……A JET BLACK KITTY THAT WAS AROUND MY AGE WHEN I WAS A KITTEN.  HE LIVED ACROSS THE STREET WHEN WE WERE IN THE OTHER HOUSE.  I USED TO GO VISIT HIM AT HIS PLACE AND HE WOULD ROLL ME DOWN THE SLIGHT HILL ON HIS FRONT LAWN.    I WAS A BIT ON THE ROLY POLY SIDE WHEN I WAS KITTEN.

Take it away Shoko.

3……BEING IN MY VEGETABLE GARDEN….. usually makes me…..SUPER HAPPY.  UNLESS, THERE IS SNOW ALL OVER THE GARDEN.

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be…..CATWOMAN.  I WOULD DRESS UP IN TIGHT FITTING JEANS AND SWING MY WAY ACROSS TOWN LOOKING FOR PEEPS THAT HURT ANIMALS AND HURT THEM BACK.

There you have it our fill-ins for this Friday

May the mouse you’re chasing blow you kisses
from the opposite side of the fence.

Have a happy weekend  and don’t nip and walk.  Too dangerous.  Stay home.                                                                     

There’s Something About Shoko

Did ya ever have one of those days when you felt all legs and paws?                                                             ashst1Aww….it feels good to relax and stretch out.

Bet she doesn’t have a clue how odd she looks to everyone.  MOL                                                                  akI’ll just pretend she looks like a wee angel.  What a silly kitty she is but that’s my sis.

Have a happy day.  There will be much snickering here at Fort Meezer.                                                                             Kali and Shoks

 

Celebrating Artsy, Fartsy Caturday with Shoko

Good Caturday my friends.  Hope your week was a happy one and you were not harassed by your sister or brother….like I have been this week.  What does one innocent kitty do with a sister that feels she is royalty?  Some days she just twists my fur and I could yell out the howls of my ancestors!

I must forget THE KALI and get on with my artsy picture for this week.  Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty blog is hosting the blog hop so just click on their name and be beamed to their anipal line up.                                                                      Cat artMom started off with this beautiful picture of moi.  I think my pose is most innocent.  Mom says I look spaced out.  Really!!  Not in a million years.                                                        aa1Mom jumped into Pizap and put a Galant Filter on the picture.  Then she leaped over to Corel Paintbrush Pro and added the Ripple Effect.                                                                               aa12Voila!!  You can still tell its me and yet mom’s more creative side shone through.                                                              Kali and Shoks

Is This Your Mess, Shoko?

Shoko!!  Did you drop your toys in bed again….on my side of the bed?  What makes you think it was me, mom?  You think maybe its some other furry face?  The aroma is pretty powerful and can tear into a kitty like…like, you tear into potato chips….good comparison, eh?                                                         anipnanYou know the Colorado nip that you got from Bacon’s mom is pretty darn exotic…I saw Kali trippin’ out on the deck after a few whiffs.

akali1Now, I ask you mom….is this not the face of a niphead!  She is oblivious to all that’s around her and has nothing but cat songs going through her head. That’s my sisteh!                                                                        Kali and Shoks

 

 

Helping Mom Unpack

Are we going to unpack…finally?  Yippee…treats.

suitcaseshoksmOh wow…..you found feline Greenies.  I need some for my teeth, right now….PLEASE!  What else?  A temptations mouse….cool.  Colorado cat nip….this is great stuff….mountain grown is always stronger.

Mom, did you watch us while you were gone…….I know you’re not all seeing but did you put a camera in the bedroom?  You didn’t?  Then what was the green light that showed on the bottom of the TV.  Yeah, Judy did put my favourite dvd of birds on TV….so?  Yes, it was very kind of her…..no one else ever thought of it. Oh, so CK was right.  The light was on because the TV was on.  I never noticed before.

dvdsmcrI’m sure glad you weren’t peeping at us and trusted us.  Of course, we were remarkably good.  Didn’t  Judy tell you…we helped her.  She stayed for about an hour and read her mail so I got on the desk and sat in front of the monitor so she had to twist about to see the e-mails.  Good exercise.

Now, about that kitty smell on your t-shirt.  What gives?  Haven’t we given you everything you ever wanted in a kitty?  We do so much to help you and this is what you do, run off and cuddle with strangers.  It was someone I know?  You gotta be kidding me, mom!  You were mewing with Nellie, the queen of us cats from hell.  What’s she like up close and personal?  Did she like you?  Oh my catnip….it’s hard to believe.  Did you bow?  Of course you didn’t or you’d be rolling around on the floor still.  A curtsey would have been nice.

nellie2She’s beautiful and so small!  Just like me…ok, ok, way smaller than me.  Goes to show ya, size doesn’t matter.  She is my idol mom so I won’t give ya a bad time.                                                  nelliemomcinsmLook, Nellie and her mom and there is Cinnamon…out of focus…MOL  What a Royal family with Nellie to guide them?

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Nellie’s hugging you!!  Were you excited?  Looks like Nellie gave us a bag of stuffs….let’s see it mom.  I still can’t believe you saw my mentor.                                                     goodiesnellieWow,…you say they are Nellie approved.  She put her paw print to them.  They are so unique with a certain relaxing sniff about them.  Nellie’s mom made them?  How come you’re not that talented mom?  Yeah I know you made a rabbit for cats in 1980 but that was a long time ago.  I want the octakitty with the tail…no, wait, the thing with feelers looks enticing.

What a wonderful day.  Bacon, from Piglove has shown mom and dad’s second day in Georgia with Bacon’s mom and dad.  Simply click on Piglove and join mom and dad having more fun.                                                                 Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blogger Recognition Award From Lexi: the schnauzer

Oh my, lexi the schnauzer recommended us for this lovely award.  We thank you Lexi for the honour and thinking of us.                                                                        

Now, I am suppose to recommend 15 blogs to receive this award.  Many blogs that I follow have been here for years and probably either already have this award or don’t do awards.  Oh what the nip!  I will name 5 blogs and if they choose not to participate, so be it.

Stunning Keisha…..a wise cracking kitty who believes she should have the last word in the household.

Piglove…..in the Thompson household there are 2 cats a wee dog and a pot bellied pig named Bacon.  Houdini( wee dog) looks after the posts on Friday and Bacon guides his bro.  The 2 cats are laughing at them but Bacon and Houdini just think the cats are very happy.  A household with a pot bellied pig is hard to ignore.

The Kitten Diaries…Bella and Esme are two kittens trying their best to help girl- woman and boy-man with household chores.  At least their version of how the chore should be accomplished and along the way having a few adventures.

Timmy’s Commentary…..this is where my guy Einstein lives…he has a wonderful floofy tail, Timmy, Miss Fitz, Buttons, Kali’s love, Buddy also lives here.  Toby and a big white cat…beautiful fur..the mind clicks…Rumpy!  The going ons in this house are hilarious as the boys try to outdo each other while miss Fitz is giggling under her breath..

Da tabbies o trout towne ….trout towne has a population of 11.  Each inhabitant has his or her own idea on how things should be done.  There are 2 things they agree on.  Fish is the best possible meal and no birdz are allowed.

The other part of the award acceptance said to tell everyone how we got started and give a bit of advice to those starting out.

Well, this is going to sound very dramatic but mom had heart failure in the winter of 2013 and ended up getting a pace maker.  When the surgeon put in the pace maker he nicked the heart and the heart started bleeding.  Mom found she couldn’t walk far without being winded.  Very quickly the doctors discovered the bleeding and mom was medi-vacced down to Vancouver to a heart intensive care unit at St. Pauls Hospital.  Here she was poked and prodded and finally they drained the blood from around her heart.  Mom said it was the worst possible pain she ever felt.  She was in the hospital in Vancouver for about a week.  She and dad managed to make it home on a normal jet.  Mom was so proud but exhausted.  She wasn’t allowed to do much and  was slowly going bonkers so one day she looked at the computer and found Mousebreath magazine, then Cat Scouts and finally decided on a blog for me and my sis.

Mom has two pieces of advice…stay with the blog, so what if you have 1 visitor….do the blogging for you and a record of your pet.  Then as Lexi says, lots of pictures.  We all love to see our friends in funny positions or just mellowing out.

To those I’ve named, simply follow the same things as I have done and link back to The Edge of Night.

The very last thing to do is let the blogs that have been nominated know.
