I had a marvelous day yesterday at Cat Scouts. Sammy of the Worldwide Wildcat Troop put on a Greenhouse warming party and we all brought our nip plants. Well, I had a riot chasing some mice out back with a few of my pals. Needless to say I overindulged in the nip and mom informed me I sounded weird so we should go home.
Once home I did what every cat that was “nipped” out would do…….I slept.
Today I was chompin’ at the bit to get out in the sunshine. So dad let me out. That was early this morning. Mom called and called me but I never showed up and I usually come to her by the second calling. By 2pm, mom was fussin’ and fumin’ as to where I was…..so dad, wanting to put mom’s mind at rest, MOL….came lookin’ for me. I was found fast asleep under one of the neighbour’s 87,000 old cars. Dad took me home and told mom where he found me. Mom kept me inside but I was tired and didn’t want to go gallivanting about. I crawled up to my condo and continued my pleasant dream.
Kali had her own objectives for the day. Rising at 10am, she went tripping sleepily out to the deck.
Kali hasn’t been feeling so great lately and so mom decided to give her some Barley Cat…this aids with digestion. Kali came back in for her beef Fancy Feast. Mom thought she was being real sneaky by putting the Barley Cat into the Fancy Feast. Kali looked at the Fancy Feast, looked at mom, shook her front paws and walked away to lay down in her basket. Not the reaction mom wanted at all. Mom waited for an hour and then took a teaspoon of food to Kali in her basket. Kali proceeded to gobble the food down as if she hadn’t been fed for days. Mom tried this again with the same results. Mom got the bowl of food and gave it to her and Kali got up and finished the bowl of food.
Now, mom is just shaking her head wondering about us. Why am I found sound asleep under an old car when I have so many comfy places to sleep right here? What is Kali trying to prove by declining her food and then eating the same food when it is spoon fed to her? Every day different.
What a day it was yesterday. I had such a great time with my friends. Shoko and I were MOL for hours. In fact my face hurts from smiling so much. So today is a relaxing day on the deck. Shoko’s out in the Lane looking for mice. You know, she hasn’t caught one this spring at all. Usually she’s caught 4 by now. Lost 3 and scared mom by running at her with a live mouse…MOL…owww…my face. *holds mouth with paw*
Here are Nellie of The Cats from Hell, Shoko and me singing some ancestral songs from Thailand.
♫ We are Siamese, if you please.♫
Then there was the dancing Bacon of Piglove and I were doing for about an hour. No picture here as mom was not impressed with the upturned table and the jumping on the sofa and chairs. This was totally my fault as I got right into the beat and wanted Bacon to do some break dancing. Bacon being the lovable oinker he is, obliged! That’s when mom shuffled us outside.
One totally surprising visitor was Easy of Easy Blog, all the way from France. He said he slipped onto a commercial airliner and they didn’t notice him. Mmmm? He is one big guy…they didn’t notice him? He’s a huge Weimaraner….at least to me he is. I guess he doesn’t want to discuss how he got here.
Easy and I had a deep discussion about the virtues of cotton blankies as opposed to wool.
I aso got a beautiful card from Dezi and Lexi of Dezi Worldl
Thank you Dezi and Lexi
Beatrice getting a modelling job was a real life changer for her. I am deliriously thrilled for her.
I carry many a new memory with me into my 14th. year….thank you friends.
