Last night was cold…Kali and I snuggled up with mom instead of leaving the bedroom after our story and treats. It was -7C and we felt quite chilled. Mom even turned the heat up. Mom and I went out for a walk in the Lane today. Fall was in the air. First, we checked out the backyard.
Woah, the sunflower is looking like the giant fell out! Wonder where he went? Time to take it down and put the head on the shed roof for hungry birds.
Speaking of the shed, we have two of them now, thanks to dad. Nice, eh? The big one is for the snow blower, lawn mower, shovels etc. The little one is for ornaments and containers for summer. We’ll see how this works out. These peeps aren’t the most organized…so we’ll see what spring brings.
The brussel sprouts have had their touch of frost to make them sweeter. It’s kinda sad….all my work and it’s over for another year. *sigh*
The Lane is looking like it’s seen better days. Trees have either yellow leaves, a few green leaves or they’re bald. This is the time of year that little critters are up and actively looking for warm homes. Oh, oh!! It smells like fresh mouse, right here. You go ahead mom, I’ll catch up.
Ya, let’s go see what Kali’s doing at the house.
Where’d those two go…..my tummy says it’s dinner time.
Where’s dad…it’s his day. What did you get him Shoko? Were we suppose to get him something? He doesn’t like chewing on your mouse or a straw. He just drinks through the straw…he looks like a dork when he does that. I guess his mom never showed him how to play with it. This mouse moves when I hit his bum. MOL
Mom says she will make dad a special supper so we don’t have to share our toys. Woo hoo, we’re off the hook.
This is also Selfie day at The Cat On My Head blog. Click on the blog host name and visit your lovely friends acting their best for the selfie. I had to set the timer on the selfie for this one. I did fall sound asleep.
Hope everyone has a special Father’s Day. If you have no father…..celebrate anyway. Thank your friends for being there for you and have a special time playing.
Let’s move that table Kali so there’s room to dance and play, *herd of elephants*. Crap it’s heavy Shoko! I know but I couldn’t ask mom and dad to move it before they left. I guess not.
KALI…..ORANGE What kinda food should we put out Shoko? That’s no biggie Kali….we’ll put out what we like for the cats, the others may be a bit more difficult but we’ll figure it out. Chickens, roasted with powdered nip and silvervine stuffing. Geez databbiesotrouttowne are not going to be pleased with a berd around. Well, it’s not alive or pecking at them and many of our pals love chicky. We can’t please everyone Kali, I wish we could but we’re all different
We have a dish called Sashimi. Sashimi is used to cleanse your palette between different courses. Salmon fresh from the Pacific. We had some Sockeye Salmon filets shipped in from Prince Rupert to tempt the taste buds of the fishy fanatics like YOU. hehe
We will grill the salmon to perfection right in front of your eyes. For those more daring we have salmon sushi. Wow Shoko where did you get this stuff? It’s delicious but we didn’t have any money. Well, the chicky was in the freezer and the salmon was sent down to us from our friends in Rupert. We don’t have any friends in Rupert Shoko. Do you hafta be so picky Kali? Did you do something dishonest for it Shoks? No, I got the salmon from the freezer too. So, you’re just a big wind bag Shoko! Nope, these things are perfect. Where do you think mom and dad got the salmon? Prince Rupert? Exactly.
Now when our pals bring their lucky pot dishes, we’ll have a tasty set up. Why the name lucky pot? The police will be alerted to our activities. Let them be! We’re lucky to have a pot of anything from our friends. That’s what I mean.
Gracie lent us her favourite condo playground to play and have herd of elephant games. It’s a massive tree.
I “borrowed” 2 diffusers to play. “Name That Stink.” What do our friends win if they guess the right stink, Shoko? Ummm…I never thought of that Kali. What toys do you have Kali? Toys that don’t have teeth marks in them like mine? I got a wind up mouse but I slobber on my toys. It’s rude to give a bitten or slobbered on toy. I know!! Remember those straws that mom found when she went out for coffee with her friend. You mean the ones from Starbucks and Tim Horton’s? Exactly! There must be 70 of them there. Mom goes out for coffee a lot. Those can be take home prizes. Is Nellie coming Shoko? She figures she can sneak away for a few hours but will be home when mom goes to visit. Nellie wouldn’t say a word about our pawty to mom, I know it. She is the Queen of The Cat From Hell so she won’t say ,”nip.” She can get on her cell phone and let us know when mom’s coming home. Then we can have everything shiny and new looking.
Wasn’t Valentines Day fun Kali. It was a super relaxing day. That’s right, you had a spa day. Tell us about it Kali. The day started off warm and cozy. It was 10 above today. After we had breakkie and a quick walk about on the deck….there is still lots of snow. I headed for the spa area in mom’s bedroom. There I sat in the hot tub that blows steam on my face to smooth and cleanse my snow white furs. I didn’t want to disturb mom and dad so I had my earphones in while listening to Andy Williams singing, “Moon River.” What a lovely song. I was mellowing and mewing along when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I mewed for Shoko to go away……still the tapping got more intense. Soon the taps were hurting. I popped out my cuke slices and my eyes grew huge as loonies…..there sitting beside the tub was Cow Kitty. I growled in no uncertain terms to get his skinny spotted butt outta my bathroom and don’t ever come back. But…..but..Take your butt, butt outta this room. I am very sorry Miss Kali but I must leave soon and I wanted to play with your favourite mouse but thought I should ask first. Can I play with it? Oh my, I feel like the cat that ate the canary….very guilty. satisfied inside but guilty. Cow Kitty it is wrong to run into a ladies bedroom for any reason….knock next time and wait to be let in. Of, course you can play with my mouse….that was very nice to ask. Woo hoo, thanks Miss Kali. I won’t bother you again……well today.
How was your spa Kali? Well aside from Cow Kitty barging it, it was exhilarating. You know Shoko I believe Cow Kitty is becoming more of a gentleman. So he asked to borrow your mouse? He sure did. I was impressed. That was kind of him to ask, here is the rest of your mouse. Oh dear…..it has no fur anymore! The hazards of lending your toys to boy cats, I guess. So let’s see your manicure Kali. They’re mauve Kali! They are very pretty. Thanks Shoko. I worked hard to get just the right sheen.
Let’s show our friends Einey and Buddy’s Valentine cards to us.
Mom is going to have her mouse protein IV today at the hospital and she is always wiped afterward so she’ll be back with you on-line when she is with it again, You think she’ll want to run around on the floor so we can chase her Kali? What a riot that would be…we could run all over her.
What do you get if you try to cross a mouse with a skunk?
Dirty looks from the mouse! MOL
Time for The Cat On My Head’s Selfie Sunday. Imagine I am the lone hunter in our backyard, tracking prey. Notice my perfect posture. I scan the ground for the elusive winter prey.
Oh my…is that a mouse? Eekkk…I’m going home. Dirty!!
Please drop by The Cat On My Head and see my friends posing for Selfie Sunday.
Have a quiet and warm day you fine friends.
Shoko, there is nothing farty or smelly about our fill-ins, you just wanted to write farty, didn’t you? You can be so….so…kittenish sometimes and not in the cute way.
Ellen of 15 and Meowing blog and Anne of McGuffy’s Reader blog, are introducing another set of Fill-Ins for us to play with. Thank you ladies and we’ll try to give it our best try.
1. One Thanksgiving tradition I have is….. TO RUN AROUND THE LIVING ROOM MEWING FOR KALI TO CHASE ME AND WHEN SHE DOES, I RUN INTO THE TUNNEL AND WAIT FOR HER….THEN I CHASE HER OUTTA THE TUNNEL. SHE FALLS FOR IT EVERYTIME. LOL
3. The best part about Thanksgiving Day is…..BEING BATHED IN A COOKED TURKEY SMELL ALL DAY. Mmmmm….. LOVE IT!
4. One Thanksgiving,…..I SEARCHED AND SEARCHED FOR A MOUSE OUTSIDE IN THE LANE. I FINALLY BROUGHT ONE HOME, LIVE AND SQUIRMING BUT MOM WOULDN’T LET ME IN. I HAD AN APPETIZER FOR EVERYONE BUT SHE WOULD NOT LET ME IN. I WAS FORCED TO SET IT FREE AND GO INSIDE WITHOUT A PRESENT FOR ANYONE. I WAS SO EMBARRASSED TO SHOW UP EMPTY PAWED.
What’s the difference between a cat and a frog? A Cat has nine lives but a frog croaks every night! MOL, MOL…….I like that one Shoko!
