The Party Planning Begins

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..RED VIOLET

It’s time we asked mom when she’s going away so we can plan our wee pawty with the gang from Blogville.  Should we tell mom about the pawty Shoko?  Are you kidding….no way.  She would be upset and give Judy some terrible rules like hide  the nip and put all the toys away.  I have mom’s credit card number and have been paying attention when she buys something.  You better not get mom in trouble or you’ll be looking for a new home.  You mean she’d get rid of me over a few measly dollars.  With her credit card!  No, mom wouldn’t get rid of you….I would.  You don’t hurt the ones you love Shoko, not ever.  So we do this pawty proper like or we have none.  I see what you mean Kali and I won’t use mom’s credit card.  How bout her emergency money?  That’s border line  bad behaviour Shoko.  Well, how else are we going to get the money for a happening pawty?  Steal the things we need?  Mom would be horrified if we stole anything.  She just wouldn’t tolerate that kind of behaviour from either of us.  We weren’t brought up to steal what we want.  Well, I don’t have any idea then. *sigh* 

Stay still Shoks, you’re making me dizzy with your blurriness.  How bout your Da Bird wand…..we could get a few dollars for that at the …..No way sis, Einey gave me Da Bird for Christmas.  I’m never, ever, ever parting with it.  OK, OK…cool your booties, I won’t take it away.                                                                        Hi there mom, we were just talking about you and dad and your vacation.  Where are you going?  We’re going to France Shoko.  FRANCE…you mean like Paris.  Exactly!  Cool, that’s where I went with Cat Scouts.  You going to see the Eiffel Tower?  Oh we can’t miss seeing such a wonderful place.   Did you know that Einey and I went hang gliding off the Eiffel Tower. Really, weren’t you scared?  Well, a little but Einey was with me.   He would save you right Shoko?  No….if I die in the jump, so does he.                                                                 See, don’t we look cool.  How long will you be gone mom?  A couple of weeks Shoko.  We leave next week.    We’re also headed for London after France.  So you are going to more places than Paris in France?  Yes, you betcha.  We’re going to see Phenny and his parents.  No seriously mom, anyone I would know?  Phenny and his parents Shoko.  They live across a huge pond……you can’t jump that far and our magic carpet wouldn’t hold you and dad.  You’ll have to wait and see the pictures when we get back.

Friends, friends.  That’s it Kali!  I got it.  We can ask our friends to bring one fun food or drink to the pawty.  By the time 10 friends are here the choices will be fantastical.  I like that Shoko….we can supply some things like nip, some silvervine and chicky broth with a blob of chicky in it.  We can get some good games going too.  We have to have a catchy name.  How about Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty?  Let it be……come one and all to our Lucky Pot Pawty.  The last week of March is when we are having the funniest pawty you have ever seen.

 

May you never find a cat in your burger!  That makes no sense, Shoko.  Does too!  You never heard of a cat burger?  That’s a cat burglar Shoko.  You say burglar I say burger….same diff.                                                                           

Friday Fill-Ins

Before we get started let’s take a minute and honour Butter Lovin Boomer from Da Tabbies of Trout Towne.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                                                           I’ll see you again someday Boomer.                                                                     May your steps be light and  the butter lead your way home Boomer.

Boomer aka Bum, was born on May 1 of 1998.  He walked off into the sunset with St. Francis of Assisi on March 7, 2017.  Boomer lived for 19 years!  That is some life span my friend. He must’ve had a mission.


Now, let’s get on with the Friday fill-ins co-hosted by Ellen Of 15 and Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

I will answer the first 2 sentences and Shoko will tackle the last 2 sentences
1. I hope …BLUE BLOODS….. gets renewed for another season.   MOM IS SO HAPPY WATCHING TOM SELLECK THAT IT WOULD UPSET HER IF IT WERE CANCELLED.  I LIKE IT WHEN MOM IS HAPPY.

2. My first crush was…..GAGE……A JET BLACK KITTY THAT WAS AROUND MY AGE WHEN I WAS A KITTEN.  HE LIVED ACROSS THE STREET WHEN WE WERE IN THE OTHER HOUSE.  I USED TO GO VISIT HIM AT HIS PLACE AND HE WOULD ROLL ME DOWN THE SLIGHT HILL ON HIS FRONT LAWN.    I WAS A BIT ON THE ROLY POLY SIDE WHEN I WAS KITTEN.

Take it away Shoko.

3……BEING IN MY VEGETABLE GARDEN….. usually makes me…..SUPER HAPPY.  UNLESS, THERE IS SNOW ALL OVER THE GARDEN.

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be…..CATWOMAN.  I WOULD DRESS UP IN TIGHT FITTING JEANS AND SWING MY WAY ACROSS TOWN LOOKING FOR PEEPS THAT HURT ANIMALS AND HURT THEM BACK.

There you have it our fill-ins for this Friday

May the mouse you’re chasing blow you kisses
from the opposite side of the fence.

Have a happy weekend  and don’t nip and walk.  Too dangerous.  Stay home.                                                                     

What Shall We Do Wednesday?

How did you like our stroll down the street Kali?  It was ok….not very warm though.  If you hadn’t been resting your head on my butt and had your paws over my legs, I would have felt a chill.  You sound like an old lady Kali.  I do not!  You asked how I liked the stroll, for hairy nip’s sake.  Who’s Hairy Nip?  Is he someone I know?  I want to meet him, Kali.  Oh fur..sistehs!!                                                                        aask1Wipe your paws, Shoko!  You weren’t brought up in a Cattery.  You sound ticked sis….what’s ahappen-ning widt youse…big girl?  I’m bored stiff Shoko.  I know what you mean Kali.  We have to get involved in something indoors…..it’s no fun out here.                                                                aakalicloseI guess you’re right Shoko.  Really, it is up to us to entertain ourselves.  Mom can’t play all the time she has to clean our bedding, feed us, get treats,  buy us fun toys and then dad’s going to want the same, so I guess she is pretty busy.

I’m going to look for my *Paw a Treat* toy.  Found it.

aaaPretty well cleaned the *Paw a Treat* out….I’m good!

 This doorknob is filthy dirty, I’ll clean it for mom…lickity, lick, lick.  Now for a nap,,,,coming Shoko?                                                          aakcleaningWhoa Kali that knob really shines.  I can see your face in it sis.  My tongue’s rather tired now.                                                                           dscn0335Let’s have a well deserved nap Kali.  We can dream of the warm summer winds.

Selfie Sunday with…Shoko

Today has been a very mild day….at least for us.  Mom, Kali and I headed out for some much needed fresh air.  Mom was surprised Kali was so happy to get out but I guess she was getting as bored as the rest of us with being stuck in day after day.  Kali and I headed straight for the nip.                                                                aakalishokcrdoneEver since mom decided to feed any cats and their monkeys left out on cold nights, the place has been crawling with introoders.  We wanted to make sure the nip was fine.  The nip was bald as a billy goat!  Think that was winter’s chill, not the introoders though.  Kali ran over and left her scent on what was left of the nip so these crazy dudes know it’s our nip.

I thought she was going tinkles on the nip and was mewing at her to stop.  She said her waterworks were chilled and she couldn’t do anything even if she wanted. to.                                                                     aakalicrzm
After our visit outside where we exerted our dominance we decided it was time for a snooze.
kalipillowtalkKali felt a bit too fresh and curled inside the tent mom makes between the pillows.

 

I on the other paw, was feeling just right, so I retired to my bed beside the toilet paper.                                                                       aashoktpsmAww…a comfy corner of the bathroom.

Today is also Sunday Selfie with The Cat On My Head.  Go visit them….read their news of what’s happening in their house and say hiya to your anipals that are posing.

May the snow fall be short but the sunny days linger.                                              sistersinarmswinter               

Wrapping The Investigation Up Like Fish and Chips

I must ask you Sherl, why the get up?  Oh Shoko, I have a horrible headache and the sun seems so bright today!                                                                                 chglassesbowYou look as if you’ve found something new, Sherl.  I have Shoko.  It was right in front of our faces but we couldn’t see it.  The nip amplified my deductive reasoning.  It was elementary, dear Shoko.  Oh really?

We have a photo of Elfin John’s stab wounds.  We compared these to everyone’s teeth and fangs that entered the house over the last month to no avail.  So we have exhausted all possible leads except one.

The evidence:                                                                     suspectteethmarks-jpgSee how the fang marks match perfectly with the puncture wounds.  I see Sherl.  So you know who did it?  It was pure deduction my dear girl.   When all other possibilities have been dismissed, then the one remaining, however improbable is the correct possibility.

Who did it?  It was the ….the…                                                                          dryermonster1smDRYER MONSTER.  You know, the one that eats your dad’s socks and steals face cloths.  Dryer monster why did you bite Elfin John?  What I can’t hear you?  He says cause Elfin bugged him. Believe me Elfin can be very trying but no one deserves to be punctured.  How did he bug you…um..what is your name?  It’s ok you can whisper it to me.  Diego the dryer monster.  Nice name.  You say Elfin would hang by his slippered feet from the top of the dryer and make faces at you through the glass.  Seriously?  Dude that would irk the cwap outta me too.  Still no excuse to puncture the guy.                                                         aamonster-1Tell me Diego, how did you get at Elfin and then throw him in the garbage without leaving paw prints.?  He says one day mom left the dryer open so he grabbed Elfin by his face and flung him into the garbage. He is surrendering to you Sherl.  I will turn him over to the dryer bobbies or as you say here in Canada, the dryer RCMP.  They can reprimand him.

Thank you for your hospitality Shoko and Kali.  We shall meet again.                                                                            chardeleaving

We thank Charlie of samanthamurdochblog for using her deductive powers to discover our culprit.  Pop on over and visit with Charlie.  Her mom is a bit of a crystal nut and always seems to have info about crystals we were not aware of.                                                                         sistersinarmswinter

 

 

 

Three Days Before Christmas Eve

I saw you staring under the shed today, Shoko.  Is there a furry under there?  Naw, I just wanted mom to think there was some activity under there so she’d tell dad and he’d be out looking for a lost furry.  That’s exactly what happened.   I mewed and mewed until my throat was sore as dad examined the hole under the shed.                                                                    aalaughingmeezer

Girls, I’m going to wrap presents so you two stay out here and amuse yourselvesWell, I’m going to sniff  presents.                                                                   aaakalisniffersOh man Shoko, this will drive you wild.  I smell lots of nip.  I’m getting giddy….MOL  Let me have a sniff, Kali.  Wowzers!!

aashokodoneThat ornament is crocked……no I’m crocked and the ornament is crooked.  That is dang good nip, Kali.

Alright, whose been biting the unwrapped presents!  Shoko!!    Cheez it da law. Let’s make ourselves scarce Kali.                                                               aanannerdone What do you get when you cross a chick with an alley cat? 
  A peeping tom.   Mol…I like it Shoko. mew, mew.  Geez Kali, you really are out of it….that was some strong nip.

Testing…Testing…Will it Hang Together?

aacarpenterhatI am much better with carpeted surfaces than wood.  Those little splinters hurt the paw.  So dad suggested I explain what’s happening instead of getting my paws in the way.

We were there to help inspect the new house on the deck.  We have placed four blankets inside the house.  The roof comes off the house for cleaning and tidying.  There are two inches of Styrofoam on the outside which makes the house pink and draft free.  Cow Kitty is secure in his masculinity so no problem with gender typing.

aashokcrNo, the house shouldn’t be so open and that herb has to go.  What kinda herb is it?  Think mom said a Bay Leaf Plant.  It looks disgusting!  No flowers just sharp pointy leaves….yuck.   Back to Cow Kitty’s house.  There is no place for him to sun himself in the morning glow.  The steps lead up to the entrance and then he’d have to hop in like a bunny.  What do you think Kali?  I agree Shoko.  If, he was in a rush to leave the house he may fall down the stairs.  Not a good place to have the house.

aakalihomecrThis is more like it Shoko.  He can run up the stairs and he has someplace to sit if he doesn’t feel like turning in for the night.  The entrance is facing in the opposite direction of the wind current,  This is the place Shoko.                                                                              aackhouseLook he likes his pink house with the Duck tape.  The Duck’s tape adds a masculine look too!

aackhomeHe’s a happy nip stealer if I ever saw one.

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

 

May I  be the fruit in your Looms.                                                                          shoko-dancing-turkey-giflThank you Dezi and Raena…..I dance like a poultry from paradise. MOL
