Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty

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.

SHOKO…..BLACK
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 perfectWhere do you think mom and dad got the salmon?  Prince Rupert?  Exactly.

We have some Green Goblin drinks for all.  The main ingredient is nip and this nip is fermented…woohoo!                                                                              

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.

We’re ready for a pawty.                                                         May your light shine through
the haze of nipadoodle.                                                                                       

 

The Three Muscateers Make Life In The North…Rock

Hey, look, look Nellie….a moose!  Me’s not seen a moose befores not even in Edmonton. He’s a bigs guy.

prince-george-wildlife-moose-cityMes going to rides a moose, girls.  Let’s go!  This big guy says his name is Marvin and mes can ride on his back.  Yipeee! 

knsmoosedoneThank yous so much for the ride, Marvin.  Yous are the nicest moosie mes ever met.  Heys, Shoko what’s yous looking ats?  I got an idea to get back at Cow Kitty…..again.  First you and Kali must make a big snowball and I’ll build a contraption to deal with it. 

nellie-snow

That should be big enough Nellie.  I think Shoko wants to throw it at Cow Kitty but she’s not strong enough for this mammoth snowball,

kalisnowballOk, I got it made as best I can.  Nellie you must stand right there and Kali and I’ll move the snowball over here. MOL  When I see Cow Kitty, I’ll yell and you jump off the CATapult.   Cow Kitty will get a snowball to remember.

nellieball

Leap off Nellie!  Look at that snowball fly. MOL

aacksnowballWell, heavenly days, these gals mean business!

aacksbfeetI’m going home while I still can.  These gals are a fearsome trio.

Let’s get inside, looks like we’ve done all the damage we can outside for today.

catonheadbdIt’s the Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie today so let’s the three of us pose for the selfie.  You can pop in and say hi to our friends posing for their selfie.                                                           sand-k-and-nellieHey, I’m a real *Cat From Hell.*  My eyes are glowing red…hehe.

It sure has been wonderful having you here Nellie…we both have loved it.                                                           nelliekissingkali

Mom wants to give you your medicine and wants you to have a nice warm nap, Nellie.  We’ll come snuggle cause we’re all cold.                                                                     aaasnuggleI wish you didn’t have to go home tomorrow Nellie.  Mes too Shoko but mommy worries about mes so it is for the bestest that I gos home.  Maybe mes can come back in the spring when its warm and yous planting your vegetable garden Shoko.  We would have a fine time in the dirt Nellie.  It’s so light I can bat it all over the place.

Let’s sleep…I’m tired my meezer sistehs.

May you have a friend that insists you don’t snore but purr while sleeping.

Today is What day?

Kali, Kali….come here sis.  You’ll never guess what mom told me today.  What…..she actually gave birth to you and you look like our dad but you have fur just like Auntie Evelyn.  So you’re a throwback to a simpler time.  ‘giggle’  Cwap, Kali!!  You really do live in a world of your own making.  I was just kidding you Shoko…

I’ll whisper the news to you Kali.  Today is Meezer Colour Day!  No!!  Really,  are pulling my paw, Shoks?  A day all our own. Wow.                                                                              pizap.com14458262231691Mom says she has a few prezzies for us too.  I hope they’re half as good as the prezzies we got from Einstein, Buddy and the gang at Tomcat Commentary by Tim.  I love those cat crazies..  Are we suppose to do something that is worthy of a meezer Shoko?  Maybe we should show everyone what class we have and read some feline poetry.  I don’t think we’re suppose to do anything different just be our lovable selves.                                                                     agoodies1We struck paw dirt!!  Woo hoo, look catnip Greenies, a yeow rainbow and three wee mice.  The mice are just our size.  I wonder if they are the marinater from Jackson Galaxy?  We can pretend the mice are marinaters Shoko.  Mom can pop one in our bag of nip. Great idea Kali.                                                                      MeezerColorsDay 6_9_2016We only really know one other meezer…….Queen Nellie Belly.  Let’s send her an e-card.  Won’t she be surprised.

Happy (Me)ezer Colour Day to all our friends.

Trippin’ On The Keys Pt. 2

ahhOf course this is Ernest Hemingway.  He was only 62 when he went to join his cats from the cemetery at the Rainbow Bridge.

Mom wanted to stay longer at Hemingway’s House.  The house and grounds were fascinating and Walt Disney enjoyed showing mom around.                                                            awaltThe cats have a cat house that is a replica of Hemingway’s House.

acathouseShe had to say goodbye to Walt.  Dad was tapping his watch and saying they had other places to go on Key West before nightfall.

awaltdNotice Walt’s front paws…a true Hemingway cat.  Look real hard at Walt….think he has a stand in.

Off mom and dad went in their flame coloured Fiat.  Heading for the southernmost tip of the USA.                                                                    asouthtipThis is the best picture they could get of the buoy.  See all the tourists…mom says the tourists just kept coming.   The southernmost point was originally just marked with a sign, which was often stolen. In response to this, the city of Key West erected the now famous concrete buoy in 1983. The concrete buoy is actually an old sewer junction that was dug up in the area and found too heavy and large to move, so it was painted up to look like a buoy.  It is 81 nautical miles straight south to Cuba.  The buoy says 90 but its inaccurate.                                                          asmhzm    The Southernmost house in the USA.  Mom said all you can really see are lots of palms around the house.

They drove through the Truman Annex.  How the American government acquired this land from the people is in much debate….even today.  It is worth googling the Truman Annex my friends.  Much of the Truman Annex today is privately owned.                                                                     aa3

The houses are beautiful and most of them are Townhouses.  For mom the main attraction was the Little White House.

alwhTruman’s White House in Key West was the winter White House for President Harry Truman for 175 days during 11 visits. The house is located in the Truman Annex neighborhood of Old Town.

The Little White House was the end of their visit to Key West and it was time to take the Fiat and vacate this Key.

For the next three hours, which were uneventful….dad drove and mom sipped on her free Cokes from Coca Cola Headquarters and stared at the same scenery going back up the Keys.  You can imagine the bathroom breaks!  There were no pictures.  I think mom fell asleep but she denies it.  Finally they stopped on Marathon Key.  There are no pictures as it was as black as…mom’s…um…can’t say that….black as her camera!

Finally they piled out at the Yellowtail Inn.  This Inn was fantastic….individual cabins that had a view that looked  out on the Atlantic, except it was dark and they couldn’t see anything but what was directly in front of them.                                                                     aviewThe inside looked like this:                                            aytThey quickly grabbed some food and had a slice of Key Lime Pie….seeing as they were here on a Key.  They quickly went off to bed at 10pm to get up at 3:30am.  I  can just see mom settling down for the night.  All of a sudden there was a kkkkkfupclack, kkkkkfupckack….on went the light and they soon discovered it was the fridge talking to them.  They figured they could sleep through that so turned off the lights.  The lights came back on…by themselves….went off and then stayed on for a few minutes.  Hmmm….they fell asleep but mom says she was restless as was dad because between the lights coming on and off and the fridge making ghastly noises….it was most unsettling to say the least.   So they got up at 3am and left….both very tired but they had to get to Miami Airport by 7am.  The room looked nice but it was haunted and not by happy tourists.

Finally, they made it to the airport.  In to the rental company  went the Fiat.  Mom and dad sat like statues at their gate for hours.  Dad always likes to be real early.                                                               ajetThere’s their plane.  Delta’s headquarters is in Atlanta and that’s where mom and dad were headed, change planes and off to Seattle, change planes again and off to Vancouver, Canada.

This is my favourite part cause they visited with Nellie while in Vancouver…my mentor.                                                                       nellie2Then it was a prop plane to Prince George and home!

Would you say these two have had enough of travelling for the year?                                 appb  MOL…what a sight!                                                                             appjMOL  These are actually mom and dad’s passport photos but they looked like this when they walked in the front door after their trip.  I tell you it isn’t fair.  They looked way better when they left for vacation.  Now, mom looks like she wants to beat up dad. MOL

I don’t know why they go away, we’re all that matter and we’re so handy.                                                                         kalimedalsmThis is the loudest comforter I’ve seen in our house and mom loves it…..turn it over to the grey side mom.                                                                              Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

Helping Mom Unpack

Are we going to unpack…finally?  Yippee…treats.

suitcaseshoksmOh wow…..you found feline Greenies.  I need some for my teeth, right now….PLEASE!  What else?  A temptations mouse….cool.  Colorado cat nip….this is great stuff….mountain grown is always stronger.

Mom, did you watch us while you were gone…….I know you’re not all seeing but did you put a camera in the bedroom?  You didn’t?  Then what was the green light that showed on the bottom of the TV.  Yeah, Judy did put my favourite dvd of birds on TV….so?  Yes, it was very kind of her…..no one else ever thought of it. Oh, so CK was right.  The light was on because the TV was on.  I never noticed before.

dvdsmcrI’m sure glad you weren’t peeping at us and trusted us.  Of course, we were remarkably good.  Didn’t  Judy tell you…we helped her.  She stayed for about an hour and read her mail so I got on the desk and sat in front of the monitor so she had to twist about to see the e-mails.  Good exercise.

Now, about that kitty smell on your t-shirt.  What gives?  Haven’t we given you everything you ever wanted in a kitty?  We do so much to help you and this is what you do, run off and cuddle with strangers.  It was someone I know?  You gotta be kidding me, mom!  You were mewing with Nellie, the queen of us cats from hell.  What’s she like up close and personal?  Did she like you?  Oh my catnip….it’s hard to believe.  Did you bow?  Of course you didn’t or you’d be rolling around on the floor still.  A curtsey would have been nice.

nellie2She’s beautiful and so small!  Just like me…ok, ok, way smaller than me.  Goes to show ya, size doesn’t matter.  She is my idol mom so I won’t give ya a bad time.                                                  nelliemomcinsmLook, Nellie and her mom and there is Cinnamon…out of focus…MOL  What a Royal family with Nellie to guide them?

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Nellie’s hugging you!!  Were you excited?  Looks like Nellie gave us a bag of stuffs….let’s see it mom.  I still can’t believe you saw my mentor.                                                     goodiesnellieWow,…you say they are Nellie approved.  She put her paw print to them.  They are so unique with a certain relaxing sniff about them.  Nellie’s mom made them?  How come you’re not that talented mom?  Yeah I know you made a rabbit for cats in 1980 but that was a long time ago.  I want the octakitty with the tail…no, wait, the thing with feelers looks enticing.

What a wonderful day.  Bacon, from Piglove has shown mom and dad’s second day in Georgia with Bacon’s mom and dad.  Simply click on Piglove and join mom and dad having more fun.                                                                 Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Fun Week

 

What a fun week we had.  Kali has been out sunning herself in her hat and sun glasses so she doesn’t have to worry about a burn.  Her fur is white and she seems to feel the effects of the sun quickly.

I'm set....no sun puddles for me.  I want to get out and savour the sun's rays

I’m set….no sun puddles for me. I want to get out and savour the sun’s rays

 

Me?  well I’ve been helping mom, as usual.  We got several pots of flowers planted.  The leeks and celery were planted in the greenhouse along with the Summer Savoury herb.  We ran outside every few minutes as it was hot as stink in there.  I noticed a green pepper fruit is about an inch wide on the peppers.  All the squash is planted outside except the spaghetti squash.  So we need to plant the corn, cauliflower, swiss chard, beets and carrots yet.

beet seeds

 

carrot seed tape

carrot seed tape

This carrot seed tape is easy peasy.  No fuss or mess, just lay the tape down and cover with soil.  Of course, I grab the tape and run….just airing the seeds out.  Then I continually break them for mom.  So when she does lay them down…they are of a smaller size she can handle.

Earlier in the week Speedy The Cheeky Rex Rabbit had me as a guest bunny on Disapproving Bun Day.  I had a ball as a bunny.  Mr. Mick, a handsome guest bunny and I kicked up some dust with Speedy.

Nellie from The Cat From Hell also made me an honorary member of the Cat From Hell and put me on her Hellions Page.

I want to thank Speedy and Nellie for helping me have such a fun time.

Mom and I still have a fair bit of planting to do but it looks like a storm is moving in so the plants and seeds will have to wait…a good watering from the skies is needed for the plants and the forest fires.

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.

 

 

♫ We are Siamese, if you please.♫

♫ 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.
