Memories of Thanksgiving

We are joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday.  Please come and join us.  Click on the name or the badge….we’ll be waiting.                                                           

Wasn’t that a lovely meal.  We had turkey and mom and dad chowed down on ham with dad’s special cherry glaze.  We helped,Shoko.  Yeah right!  As dad was preparing the cherry glaze, Budd silently jumped up on the counter and gobbled a mouthful of meat off the ham.  He was settling in to have a few more bites when dad turned around and saw him.  Eyes met and dad must have been screaming with his eyes cause Budd jumped down immediately.  All dad said was…”ah, oh….Budd!”  We all watched as Budd went thundering out of the kitchen leaving dad to cut off the ham where Budd took a bite.                                                            He doesn’t look like he’d harm a fly but he’s the fastest thief in the west.  I can just hear him saying, “Dang that was good!”

Poor ole Budd.  What do you mean, “Poor ole Budd?”  Budd is always the first one to show up at mealtime and if he finishes his food before we have finished, he moves on to our food….just head butts us out of the way.  Dad has to watch him like a hawk!  It’s an endearing quality of his.  Bull feathers!  He’s a pain in the butt.  We end up eating fast and getting indigestion just so he won’t eat our food.  Just wait till mom is up and walking again.  She won’t put up with this kind of behaviour.                                                                         

Only Budd messed up on Thanksgiving.  I was good.  You!!  Who knocked a brussel sprout on the floor and then proceeded to play BS hockey with it?  Just you.  Yeah, I did…mol  It was fun.  I scored a goal when I knocked the brussel sprout(BS) right into Budd’s waiting arms.                                                             

We gave a huge thanks for our current lifestyle….we could do without winter though. It’s too cold for us.

Time for Meezer philosophy with Shoks.                                                       

“Always remember to watch other kitties and learn from their mistakes and successes. The very best teaching tool is experience. Learn from the other guy’s experience.”                                                                         

Tyebe Tuesday on Happy Tuesday

We are joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday.  Please zip over there by clicking on the blog name in red.                                                                 

Geez, I’m really sorry dad.  I thought a burp was coming up, I didn’t realize it was my snack coming back for an encore.  It must have been the fly  I ate that was buzzing around my head..  He must have eaten something that didn’t agree with me. No, I didn’t eat too much.  Well, maybe just a wee bit more than normal.                                                        

It’ll take no time at all to clean. Here, I’ll help dad.

  What’s this floating in here.  Uh, dad, I don’t think this part of the fly should be here anymore.                                                             

It’s looking good, dad. What’s that? Oh, It’s part of the fountain. I didn’t know that! This fountain is cool.  There we go.  Nice and clean again.

Now it’s time for Shoko’s wisdom words, otherwise known as Meezer Proverbs.                                                 

Whattt….oh, right, Meezer Proverbs. I drifted off to fantasyland but I’m back now.

“The wise meezer will demand and get respect from his roomies.  If, your roomie doesn’t act respectful, screech until he gets the message.  He will bow to your wishes after that.”

Caturday Art with Budd

OK friends,  I’m runnin’ this post and will be the artsy model for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s blog hop.  Simply click on her name or badge and you’ll be prowling over.                                                               

Tyebe’s cleaning her toenails cause she leaped on something in the garden and she got crap all over her paws.  Personally, I was disgusted!  How many times have I told that girl to sniff first and then attack.  She also lost her collar. Mom tries  to make sure we look halfway decent when we go out and if we wander too far then someone can look at the tag and call mom.
One day she’s going to leap on a bee and then she’ll learn but it’ll hurt like a needle at the vet’s. She just closes her ears and does what feels good.

Here I relax while Tyebe cleans like a crazy kitty.                                                       
This is a most comfortable mattress. Much better than the hard floor.

Now here I am all jazzed up.                                                             
Mom used Lunapic Floating Effect. She used 75% strength.  I’m lookin’ a little whimpy in pastel colours but it’s a cool picture.

Right, Shoko is here for another installment of Meezer Philosophy.  These are different but oh so true.  Just think about it.                                                               
“A truly wise cat never plays leapfrog with a bee.”

Fort Meezer Shines In The Sun

KALI…..ORANGE
SHOKO…..BLACK

A beautiful day here at Fort Meezer.  Everything in the garden is at its peak.  Soon the veggie garden will be nekked again.                                             Oh Cod, this Love Lies Bleeding has grown way too big…it looks silly.  Mom says she’s not going to plant it in containers next year.  No, she’ll probably plant corn in the wagon!

The sweet peas were very pretty this year and mom grew them from the seed of last year’s sweet peas. However, she only got red and pink seeds. no purple or white. Next year we’ll buy them so we get the whole spectrum of colours.

I’m walkin’ here…give me room.  We’re going for a stroll Shoko, want to come?  No way….I’m headed to the Lane.  You yapped at me for stepping on you last time I went.                                               Suit yourself…Shoko.

What a kook she is….winter will be here soon and there won’t be any strolls.                                                              

 

Mom doesn’t always put the netting over the top of me anymore unless potential danger is headed this way…like a woofie.  I’m happy to lay and watch the scenery go by.                                                           I came home and ate like my food was walking away. MOL

Then everything changed and it got foggy and cloudy.  The forest fires are still raging on as this setting shows us, as the sun was bleeding.

TIME:  5pm

Wordless Wednesday…May 3rd.

Friendly Fill-Ins with Shoko

That was a super fast week!  I was gone every day this week while my uncle and his girl friend were visiting.  I came home to eat and showed up for bed when everyone else was in their rooms.  I’m a wee bit timid around strangers.

Today is the Friday Fill-Ins with our hosts 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader.                                                                                     ellen_cat_badge_2-1-300x300Our fill-ins this week are:

1. One quirk I have is I WON’T GET ON ANYONE’S LAP.  I WILL RUN ACROSS A LAP TO GET TO THE OTHER SIDE BUT I’M NOBODY’S LAP CAT.

2. My favorite comic strip is GARFIELD

3. I am really happy  WHEN I’M WORKING IN MY GARDEN.                                                                           ashokworking4. If I could go anywhere on a road trip, I would go to RICHMOND AND VISIT WITH NELLIE, MY MENTOR AS THE CAT FROM HELL.                                                                     Nellie cartoonIsn’t she beautiful?  She’s a meezer, like me too.

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

 

Dad Is Helping Mom…..Seriously!

Dad has been helping out cause mom is remarkably slow and he wants his stuff, like, sometime this month.  The laundry was the first thing he attempted.  Mom didn’t like the way he did that.  Her underwear has  pink tinges to them.   Geesh!  You can be so judgemental mom…..it’s not like your showing them around to peeps….or are you?   He vacuumed the house and that wasn’t bad….she even thanked him.  Then he disappeared for several hours…..only to be found on the computer playing Angry Birds with Jimmy from Piglove.

Meanwhile Kali, Cow Kitty and moi, of course, were outside enjoying our fine weather.

KalishcropIs the ground dry, Shoko?  Dry as the nip on the vine.  Notice the lack of snow,  Could spring be here early?

ckzoomcrCow Kitty says if he acts nonchalant perhaps the birds won’t notice him and fly into his mouth.  It’s worth a try.

Meanwhile back in Fort Meezer, dad is informing mom that he doesn’t do toilets…it’s in his contract.  Aha! I’m not the only one with a written contract.  I knew it was a great idea..  Mom said ok, she’ll do them….I know she likes cleaning them….she is, shall we say…..different.

Lastly, was dinner.  Dad loves meatloaf and decided he would make one up for supper.  Way to go dad.  Do you remember the last one you made?

grossshHthththt, hisssth….lordy me that does look gross dad!  You mean mom ate this mess….I mean gourmet meal?

She liked it too!  Wow, way to make dad feel good mom.                                                                        meatloafsmWhoa, this meatloaf is perfect, dad!  Mom will be so happy….bet she’ll take a picture of it.

Have a great day my friends.                                                              Kali and Shoks

 

 

Results of the Polls

Welcome to Fort Meezer in Da Hood my friends.  Shoko’s idea  of a name for the area around the backyard got a 47%  vote.  So look for Shoko to start sprucing up the area soon…right Shoko?  Right Kali but hey, you gotta help too.  Ah, I’m going to be more concerned with the backyard and grounds.  This area by a vote of 46.7% is now called The Garden of Purrthley Delights.  This delicious idea was CK’s of Stunning Keisha.  Now, the greenhouse is like a world unto itself and Kali and I have decided to call it Shokali Island.  When you walk into the greenhouse you are on a tropical island.  The idea was Easy’s of Easy’s Blog.  These are fun and informative blogs, take a peek and see.

These are the bounties from Shokali Island.                                                          Peppers are ready for eating as are the leeks.                                          Spaghetti squash are ripe for the picking.  Mom’s never cooked these kind of squash so dad’s in for a big surprise!

            Guess who, grabbing some shut eye,

Onto mom’s meeting with Cow-Kitty’s dad.  Mom said he was a very nice man.  She asked if Cow-Kitty was a girl or boy.  Darnell said they weren’t sure.  They suspect she is a SHE.  Her name is Felix…..ok?  Mom never said what a weird name for a she cat but held her tongue.  Mom told him about Kali getting very angry at Felix and she suspects its because Felix is growing up and has a different smell.  Mom asked how old Cow Kitty was and Darnell said a couple of months.  Mom corrected him and said at least 4 or 5 months.  It is time to think about getting him neutered.  Darnell agreed he should be neutered.  Mom asked if he wanted to keep Cow-Kitty and he said his young daughter adored Cow-Kitty…even Darnell was calling Felix, Cow-Kitty.  Right then mom knew she could never take a kitty away from a young girl.  Mom told Darnell, who is out of work, that if they needed some assistance getting Cow-Kitty neutered that she would pay half.  Darnell was thrilled mom offered to help.

There you have it friends.  Cow-kitty’s sex is undetermined.  His/her name is Felix and is not free for the taking Ellen.

Kali’s View of Her World

For those of you that have not noticed my new header and for those of you that thought, “Egads, that’s a dark and dingy picture”.  Well here’s the scoop.  This is a picture of the Ice Castle in Dr. Zhivago.  The superb actor, Omar Shariff passed away two weeks ago and this is our way of honouring him.

 

I’m looking after the post today.  Yes, Shoko let her big sis take charge for a change.  Shoko is busy patrolling around the perimeter of the property….on the fence.  I don’t know what she’ll do if she spots trouble…bravery is not her thing.  She sees herself as this meezer:                                                          Everybody else see’s her this way:

I have been having problems getting on and off the bed.  The worst part of it was jumping onto the floor after a nice snooze.  My elbow and paws have arthritis.  I find the arthritis meds too hard on my stomach and I can’t hold them down.  Mom asked dad if he could make something that could help me out.  Shoko suggested a trampoline to dad.  She said it would be easy on my paws cause the rubber would give.  Mom and dad didn’t have to worry, she would watch me as I got off the bed.  Actually, she said it would be a hoot watching me go up to the ceiling and down again.

Dad didn’t like this idea and thought it was very unsafe.  Dad decided to make stairs for me.  They are so cool!  Just look at these stairs.

Here I am modelling the stairs…I think they look better with me on them.

Oh mom!  This is a horrible picture!  I look all butt and hips.  Please my friends disregard this pic…..I’m not this fat looking.  I know I’ve gained a wee bit but..                                                                      Here I sit on the top stair…dad made it big enough for me to sit and relax or scratch at the carpeting.  I’m not fond of the type of carpeting on the condo….scratch wise that is but I really like the carpet dad put on the stairs.
