Budd, tell me about the Lane and life on the road. What do ya wanna know little one? Did you have any friends, Budd? I sure did, lots of friends.Who was your best friend and what was he like? Well, I’d have to say Sal was a steady friend that liked the same food as me. He was a big guy, like me and we’d make the rounds of houses together. Sal could make the most pitiful puss by drooping his whiskers and making wide innocent eyes.hehe What a guy. His one weakness was salmon. He was crazyover salmon and would do almost anything if the result was him getting salmon. One day after a particularly heavy rain I told Sal that there was a salmon swimming in in a deep puddle in the Lane. You know he went through every puddle in the Lane to find that salmon. Later that day he came up to me with a piece ofsalmon in his mouth. “Dood, I found that salmon in the last puddle in the Lane and it was delish. I put aside a huge piece for you but a few hours after I ate my share, I got salmon withdrawal and had to eat your share. I mean dood, I was shaking, seeing little fishies that weren’t there. It was horrible”, said Sal.Was it true, Budd?We’ll never know for sure Tyebe. There are strange things done in the Lane after a full moon and the night before the salmon showed up there was a full moon.
Hey, mom and dad, I really don’t like it here. It stinks and not in a good smelly way.
Shokos told me’s to watch out for this peep in white but she seems nice. Still, I’s unsure. She even gave me some wet food…..it didn’t taste very good but I’s didn’t mind the prick on my side cause I was busy sniffing the odd food.
What are you doing? Get away from me’s butt! How rude! Shove that thing up your own butt. Mom will hear how you treated me….I’s a good girl, I am. Oh, my, mom is here. Shokos will not like you shovin’ something up my butt. She’ll bite you!
I’s don’t like it here. Me’s want to go home Right now and see Shokos. This lady is sorta nice but I’s bet she has no friends. She does have an unfortunate manner. Too bad.
Shokos, Shokos, me’s went and saw the lady in white. Stop I’s must talk with you’s.
No, not the vet! Yep, I’s had my 2nd round of shots. I’s not going back…EVER. Mom and dad may not agree with your decision, Tyebe. Don’t care I’s will have a tantrum if they make me’s go.
You’ll be fine Tyebe. Relax….the trip is over and you’re home. Me’s so tired now Shokos. That’s natural Tyebe. No, you won’t die, just have a nap and you’ll be fine.
No…No, mom, Sherl wouldn’t get stoned while on a case! You swear she was ripped. I better talk to her then. Maybe mom’s exaggerating.
Hi there Sherl, how’s the case coming along? Well, Shoko, I don’t know if I can do it. This nip and silvervine blend of tobacco is helping me see I can do anything. Why have you got that hat on, Sherl? Cause it makes me feel like a lady. ♪ I feel pretty, oh sooooo pretty.♪ How about coming, mewing with Kali and I, and having a nice cuppa tea without the nip. We’ll leave the pipe here too. OK let’s have a tongue wag and a bit of a nap. ole chum.
Sorry my friends but Sherl will be in no shape to deduce anything today. Seems we all have our insecurities, even the celebs. I am starting to get an idea of how the deed was done to Elfin John. I will talk it over with Kali and get her thoughts and by then Sherl will be back in the world of the nip free, We’ll discuss our thoughts with her.
Mom and I weighed in this morning to start my, what would it be…it’s not a diet but a being conscious of how much I eat. I know, this will be My SHOKO ALERT. We only have to weigh in once a week. Then mom and I headed downstairs for my exercise wearing my tiger vest. Well, mom headed down to the basement, I was very slow and followed 10 minutes later. I mince along like a little old lady in a hurry. Dad laughed at me…..I was so embarrassed….I gave him the evil eye like only I can do.
After our jaunt about the basement we headed upstairs. Well, mom headed upstairs and I slowly followed. It was time for Kali’s ointment for the patch of fur she’s scratched out. Mom this is a really bad picture. You should take a picture BEFORE you put the ointment on. Now it looks like a wet and messy part of her fur. Actually the bare spot is about the size of 4 silver dollars. It’s a big patch. Kali was very good and even rolled on the side so she couldn’t scratch the bare patch.
It’s very cold here again. The water outside is starting to freeze except on one side so the hotel clients can still get water. Not much of a sign of cats nor peeps.
Keep bundled up my friends and see ya on the flip side of cold.
May your ducks be in a row and your…
Hey Shoko…..I just heard Nellie’s been sick, really ill. What? My Nellie….the queen of The Cat From Hell? Geez, how is she now, Kali? I think she is a bit better. What can we do for our fellow Canuck that will cheer her up? I know Kali….how about if we have her up for a visit? It’s awful cold up here, Shoko. She’s certainly not used to the cold anymore what with living in the banana belt of BC. We can keep her warm inside and I know she’d love to see the hotel guests. She can hiss or stick out her tongue at them. It’ll be fun. We have to ask her mom first Shoko and then do whatever her mom thinks is right. Let’s call Nellie and tell her of our plan.
Hello? Is this you, Nellie…The Cat From Hell’s queen? It’s mes. This must be Shoko from the north? Ya, MOL. How are you feelin’ Nellie? Mes is better but not on top of things. We even got a picture of you here on the phone. You are lookin’ real good to us girlfriend. Kali is with me and we wanted to know how you feel about visiting with us for a bit? Mes never been way up there. Mes want to go visit you and Kali. I must tell mom but she’ll want to know how we’ll get there. I have a magic carpet which makes the ride in seconds. You won’t have the chance to get cold.Mes excited but mommy must be told and it depends on her. I’ll ask her tonight Shoko and let you know. Sounds good Nellie. Really build it up Nellie so she’ll feel guilty saying no. You know, use the tricks you taught me in Cat From Hell classes. MOL, good memory Shoko. Tuttees Shoko…Ring my chimes Nellie…MOL..Mew later.
Mom and I went for a stroll yesterday, a long stroll. The sun was peeking through the clouds and there was just a spit of rain here and there. So off we went down the street. I was a little embarrassed, peeps were pointing and laughing at me….this is rude. Mom told me to ignore them and enjoy the ride. So I lay down and watched all the peeps and scenery go by. This is Gateway Facility for Seniors where mom volunteers every Monday. They have a nice bench mom relaxed on before we continued our travels.
Mom went strolling down a busy street where semi’s were rushing by me. I was getting a little scared but we got off of the sidewalk, stopped and talked with a lady that had purple hair. She had a shopping cart with the statement…”I can’t take it anymore.” She was a sad lady. Mom and I talked with her for a long time. She told us her story and we listened. By the time we left she looked a little more hopeful.
We strolled into the Youth Centre where dad volunteers and he was delighted to see us. He proceeded to show us the new wheelchair lift they had gotten recently. Mom and I just had to ride on it. After this amazing display where dad brought the bar down on mom’s head and I mewed in merriment, while mom was a little ticked, we went home.
Shoko was waiting for us on the fence and came dancing in the front door while mom picked up the mail. There was mail for Shoko! It was from Cat Scouts. The parcel held a kerchief from the April quest Shoko was on. Shoko wanted her new kerchief on like right now.
There you have it, Shoko modelling her kerchief. Does she look like a proud dudette or what?
1/ Kali and I both agree the most important thing that makes us happy is to live with mom and dad. They treat us very well and we love them. Mom is a little odd at times but she’s never boring
2/ I must say I do love running. I get so happy when Cow Kitty is chasing me home or I’m running after Kali down the hall.
3/ I have so much to be thankful for but this award is for what makes me happy. I would have to say laying in a sunpuddle, getting warm and cozy really makes my world go around.4/ We both are delighted when we hear from our boyfriends. Einstein sets my teeth on edge, he is one dude that just doesn’t slow down. Buddy is a gentleman and treats me as a lady should be treated.Einstein and I Glamping in Cat Scouts. Buddy and Kali enjoying a BBQ.
5/ For our last entry we decided to go with our stroller because we each like the stroll mom gives us. I am surprised that Shoko likes it but she never ceases to amaze me.

Who are you and what are you doing on my deck? Hello pretty lady, my name is Mister End Spray and..Wait, your middle name is End? Yes it is. When I was adopted, the peeps weren’t sure whether to have End/ Or as my middle name. Mom thought Or sounded threatening. As I was saying dear lady I am selling subscriptions to “Nips Anonymous.” This is a culinary magazine for gourmets. I notice the nip in your garden so this magazine is a must. No, we don’t want a magazine, we can use the computer for recipes. Aww…I’m trying to pay my way through Rodent School and that is not cheap. NO! Now, go away. But Miss Beautiful you have to see the wonderful recipes…. Get off my deck this instant!
Who’s this Joe Crow, Kali? He says his name is Mister End Spray and he’s selling subscriptions to “Nips Anonymous” magazine. MOL, MOL,MOL ….*snort*….what an odd name. This guy is relentless so don’t look at him Shoko….he’ll go away.Take your paws off our deck or I’ll, I’ll get my mom after you.Scram. It’s always something Shoks.
Have a great weekend friends and may the Bird of Paradise fly in your mouth.
