Getting Ready For The Growing Season

My stars…mom says its time to plant some transplants already.  It’s not even the 24th of May yet.  We usually plant on our Canadian national  holiday of the Queen’s birthday,  Not this queen, but Queen Victoria.  I don’t really know why we celebrate her cause this queen has a birthday too and she’s still going strong at 90.  I digress…the weather has been very warm here.  Mom’s thoughts have turned to planting time.  So everybody in the household has padded out to the garden and done some work.                                                                         avegygardenDad rototilled the soon to be planted veggie garden.  Mom will soon sit in the soil and plant the seeds.  I will help her by digging out the rows.  Kali will lie on the air mattress mom uses.

akalideckKali is supervising the work dad and mom are doing but she doesn’t want to get her paws dirty.

Mom decided we needed a break so we took a walk in the Lane.

ashowalkI looked both ways before I stepped into the Lane.  There could be some weird kitty or, heaven forbid, a dog in the Lane.  All was clear.

Cow Kitty is that you here at the cwappy house?

It is you!  What a great place to lay, in the cool long grass.                                                      ackcloseup

Cow Kitty looks like we woke him.  MOL                                                                        ashcloseLet’s take Cow Kitty and go home Shoks…there is more to do in the backyard.  Ok, mom let’s go.  C’mon Cow Kitty, the dirt is calling us!

Have a messy but fun day my friends.                                                                  Kali and Shoks

 

Never Thought I’d See The Day

I got the surprise of my wee life yesterday.  Mom took off and left us for hours!  Well, at least an hour.  She ran out of wet cat food, if you dare imagine such neglect from our mother.  I couldn’t believe my ears and kept shaking my head but sure enough, the cupboard was bare.                                                      zoomedbrightshokSo there I sat without a shred of food….only my memory of the wonderful taste of cat food.  I sat pondering how my life could have taken such a detour when mom came in loaded with bags from pet stores.  I was almost in tears to see Beef Wellington, Beef Pate, Thanksgiving Dinner and Beef Flavoured Fancy Feast.  All Kali and my favourites.

Mom also found something else which she proceeded to put on me.  I was horrified!  This is what my friends call a harness.  I hissed at mom just so she knew I did not like this terrible turn of events.                                                         DSC_0740       I’m at a loss of what to do, hiss, pee or just barf.  I am very upset with you mom.                                                                               DSC_0741    You know, it doesn’t hurt.  I think it’s padded…it is comfy and warm.                                                                DSC_0743   Mom does seem rather proud of me.  She gave me 5 freeze dried chicky boobie pieces.  What should I do, I made such a fuss.                                                                              DSC_0742        hehe…I feel silly.  I can’t kick up a stink when it feels this good and I’m getting so tired after that wonderful Beef Wellington and getting worked up.  Maybe a bit of a lie down.                                                              DSC_0745*yawn*….feeling…zzzzz
