Taking a Break…..

We are going to be out enjoying the last month of summer up here in the Great White North. We have been Lane walking. The whole gang was out in the fresh air and heat.

I caught a bird and freaked mom out when she came walking up the Lane for the first time in a year and a half. This was my present to her.                                                                   

She really has no appreciation for the amount of work I put into these little presents for her.                                                                             

We will help mom get back into the world we love.

See you around  the end of the month, friends.

4. I finally ……GOT MOM TO BRUSH ME WHEN I CLIMB INTO BED WITH HER.  SHE USED TO THINK I WANTED THE WHOLE BED BUT NOT SO….JUST A BRUSH THROUGH MY MASCULINE LOCKS.                                                               

This is also Pet Photo Fails.  Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows has taken over this cool hop from dearly departed friend, Roby Sweet of the Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles.  Also known as The Old SoLT by Miss C.                                                                           

 

Mom didn’t do anything blurry that we took a picture of, ShokoNot mom….usMom is my pet hooman.  She’s not a pet, TyebeShe is to meWhatever!!  I don’t think mom did too badly this time.  There are the odd pictures though.                                                                   

A Sunday Selfie with Budd’s new Basket

What an awesome Gotcha Day Pawty I had.  I mewed with so many friends my jaw was stiff from yakking so much. Furries from Cat Scouts dropped by, my friends from Nottingham in the UK, Phenny and Nelly….so many I am forgetting some names.  I was overwhelmed and so very happy.

 

I was so happy cause CooperMurphy asked me to officially be his girlfriend  I was smiling from ear to ear.CooperMurphy is from the Blue family.They have The Cat On My Head selfies every Sunday.

This was like huge news and one I answered immediately….YES….I will be your girlfriend, CooperMurphy!   Isn’t he handsome? *Tyebe bats her eyelashes*


Thank you Ann of Zoolatry for the lovely card.

Mau made Tyebe a cake.  Mau is the baker Extraordinaire at Cat Scouts.  He outdid himself once again.                                                                               

Doesn’t this look like me?  What a beautiful cake.                                                       
Here I sit shooting the mews with from your left to right……Einey….Shoko’s boyfriend and his bro Timmy, another fine ginger.


A huge thank you to the Cusack brothers and their dad for the lovely Gotcha Day card from Tomcat Commentary by Tim I love it.

This is the card from Snap. It is so gorgeous I slept with it the other night….I had a marvelous pawty.  Hope you stopped by for some goodies.  If you didn’t its too late.  Budd dove into the leftovers in spite of mom pulling him off, the goodies are gone.

 

Great news about the garden too.  The nip is just coming up and the smell will knock your booties off. Budd and I took turns rolling on it.  I just love the smell of catnip in the morning  all over my coat. on my coat.

We are getting very dirty but we sure feel good.

We are joining CooperMurphy and family over at The Cat On My Head for Sunday Selfies  This time we decided to tell everyone where Budd’s hiding place is.   Click on the name of the blog or the badge and be wisped away.                                                                                     Budd is our model this week.  This is new favourite place to nap….at night anyway.                                                             

This is Budd’s go to place when the lights go out.

Time for the Meezerism of the week with Shoko.                                                             

“If, killing a mouse is NOT your cat’s nip tea then just have her play with the mouse.  I guarantee it will never come back to play again.”

 

 

Photo Fails with Fill Ins

It’s the last Friday of December and so it’s Photo Fails time. Roby Sweet started Photo Fails and Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows are honouring her by continuing the blog hop.                                                              
Our first (yes, we have more than one fail) photo fail is of Tyebe.  She was looking right into the camera and suddenly turned her head.                                                            
It’s a beautiful photo of my gifts though.

Shoko was smiling into the camera and decided she was feeling shy and might….just might have beef on her face.  She didn’t want her boyfriend to see her looking unkempt.
Here’s another one of Tyebe.  She was looking right at the camera.                                                          
When I clicked the camera she just flipped around facing the other way as if to say, “Talk to the tail, woman.”
Our final fail is of Tyebe and Budd.                                                                 
This fail was totally on me as Budd was doing his part by looking cute and wanting a treat for babysitting Tyebe.
It is also the Friday Fill-Ins, the last one of the year so we couldn’t miss this one.  The Fill-Ins are hosted by 15 and Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.                                                                 
Today Budd and I will do the fill-ins.  I will do the first two and Budd the last two sentences.
1. On New Year’s Eve, I…….PLAN ON WATCHING A MOVIE WITH THE CATS WHILE HUBBY DRIVES FOR OPERATION RED NOSE.
2. A goal that I have for 2019 is …… GOING ON HOLIDAYS TO THE EAST COAST OF THE U.S.A.
3. If I had to choose a guide word for 2019, it would be…..LOVE.  I FOUND IT AND I’M GOING TO KEEP THE FEELING GOING.                                                                    
PAY IT FORWARD SO TO SPEAK.
4. New beginnings……HAVE ALREADY STARTED.
                                                                     
THIS IS MY FUREVER HOME.
See ya next week, friends.                                                                          
MOM…..MAROON
BUDD….CHRISTMAS GREEN

Sunday’s Selfie with Shoko

It is time for our pal The Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie.  I snapped my picture as I was telling a tale of the zombie from hell…Kali wet herself and ran to the kitty litter.  Mom didn’t wet herself but had eyes as big as saucers.  Me?  I had a jolly good mew!                                                   Join our friends and either join the models or have a furry nice compliment for each anipal.

I’m pointing with my eyes to the zombie and who walks up onto the deck but dad after digging in the garden and he was pooped.  That’s when Kali tore out to the kitty litter. MOL  I love it…this is fun.                                                     

Easy We Love Ya

Normally this is a happy blog and a place of sanctuary from the battering of life but last night Easy left us for the Rainbow Bridge.  We adored Easy and he was a good friend to us girls, often offering us DIY info.  When you get down to it, Easy was a friend to all in Blogville.  He loved everyone.                                               easyThanks Sammy of, One Spoiled Cat.  You have managed to put together a beautiful tribute picture for us to remember him by.

We loved Easy and will always adore his memory.  At this sad time, a picture keeps popping up in mom’s mind and it warms her heart.  We wish to share it with you and it is meant in love and respect.                                                                easys-tunnelEvery time mom looks at this picture of Easy arriving at Shoko’s 7th Gotcha Day Party from France, she gets a smile on her face.  We hope it brings a smile to your face also.

Shopping And Chowing Down Around The World

cute-kitten-sitting-shopping-cartHi ya fellow food fanatics and welcome to Fozziemum and Piglove’s Shopping Around the World.  Today we are going to make a dish which both mom and dad love.                                                                     chefshokThe dish is simple.  That’s exactly why mom likes it.  Not many ingredients and takes about 2 minutes to make up.  You can add more vegetables and really have your whole meal in one casserole dish.  Mom usually throws everything together in the casserole dish and then there’s only one dish to clean.  Lazy or what?

Pork Chops in Gravy

Ingredients:

2 bone-in pork chops……………..$3.99 a Ib. at Real Canadian Superstore

1 pkge. Clubhouse Mushroom Gravy………………………$1.39 at Superstore on sale.

If you want you can add mini potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, red pepper or any ingredient your heart desires.  Caution:  if you are piling the extras in with more pork chops, you’ll need more packages of gravy.

The cool part of this dish, beside the taste, is the only calories are in the pork chops.  No fattening gravy to add extra weight to those hips.

Mom puts the pork chops under the broiler for 2 minutes on each side to burn off the extra fat.  She pulls out a 1.5 qt. casserole dish and whisks the gravy and water in the casserole dish.  After patting the chops dry with a paper towel, she puts the chops into the gravy in the casserole dish.

Turn the oven to 250 degrees and cook for 2 and a half hours or when the chops are fall apart tender. Voila….done!                                                     porkchopgravy  You’re right, these chops are supplied by Mr. Google. Mom made a sandwich for supper….its too hot to have the oven on tonight.  The pork chops look the same as the ones supplied by Mr. Google though.

Bony Petites my friends.
