Reflections on Kali’s Gotcha Day

 

 

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.

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.

Kali’s Thirteenth Gotcha Day Pawty

 

 

 

Happy Gotcha Day Kali!!

Happy Gotcha Day Kali!!

Today is THEE day for my big sis as she turns 13.  Imagine 13!  Thirteen years ago we never heard of Silvervine Catnip.  Computers were harder to handle….there were not so many cats with blogs because computers were not “cat friendly” at that time.

When Kali was born mom and dad lived in a different house.  They had a lane beside the  house.  Mom says that Kali was a very friendly kitten and if a stranger past by the backyard and said “Hi” to Kali….she would follow them home.  Mom would quit gardening and race down the lane to bring Kali home again.

I know you lost the mice from last year…I might have had a wee bit to do with that.  I got you mini mice this year, they are smaller and you can carry them around with your 4 teeth.  Have fun with them Kali.  You are a great sis…..

International Beaver Day and Beatrice

 

Did You know that April the 7th was International Beaver Day?  We didn’t know, although Beatrice was making a fuss yesterday.  We thought it was because she finally found her BLING! No, she was excited because on Beaver Day she allows herself to indulge in her favourite bark…..willow….it is more fattening than the pine or birch bark but has that extra nutty flavour.

Dates

7th Apr each year

The beaver may be the national animal of Canada but the furry dam-building rodent can be found across the North American continent and Eurasia as two distinct species, but the population has been on the decline for several decades now. International

Beaver Day aims to celebrate and raise awareness of the plight of the rodent. Beavers are known for their tree-munching activities, but did you know that they use every bit of the tree that they fell? They eat the buds, bark and leaves, before gnawing the branches and trunk into smaller pieces to build with. The dams are useful in preventing floods and droughts, restoring the northern wetlands and helping to cleanse the water. The largest beaver-built dam is in Wood Buffalo National Park, Alberta, Canada and is 850m long!

International Beaver Day is a great time to hike into the woods to spot some of these noble gnawers.

 

Beatrice has her BLING and is looking for a modelling job with the Wildlife magazines.  She wishes to stay in Canada and enjoy the mountains and many lakes and streams.
