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.
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. Our 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. 4. 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. Isn’t she beautiful? She’s a meezer, like me too.
Did ya ever have one of those days when you felt all legs and paws? Aww….it feels good to relax and stretch out.
Bet she doesn’t have a clue how odd she looks to everyone. MOL I’ll just pretend she looks like a wee angel. What a silly kitty she is but that’s my sis.
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.
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?
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.
Shoko is black
Kali is orange
