Gardening Can Be Hazardous To One’s Health

 

I was in the house dining as were mom and dad.  Kali was trying to get up after an especially good dream of Buddy.                                                               

SHOKO…..BLACK
DAD…..BLUE

Dad looked out the window and said, “I think Cow Kitty is  in trouble in the vegetable garden.”  The three of us quickly headed outside to see what was wrong.  As we got closer this is what we saw.

Cow Kitty was terrified and very agitated.  Dad tried to remove his paw but Cow Kitty tried to scratch and bite him so dad told mom to get the scissors and he’d cut Cow Kitty out.                                                                   

     Cow Kitty must have been in some pain also.  Dad cut Cow Kitty’s paw out of the pea netting and off he went.  No limping just happier than hell-o to get out of the trap that had never bit him before.

Mom and dad never thought this pea netting could be  hazardous to any animals but the squares are small and don’t stretch.  Next year will be different as the netting will have big plastic squares so nothing will get caught.

Cow Kitty came and lay under the deck in about half an hour.  He was more relaxed.

Cow Kitty had a collar on…this is new for him.  The collar came off when he struggled with the pea netting.  There was no name on the collar but five bells.  This is a sign of how great a hunter he is.

Due to Cow Kitty’s harrowing experience today we are making him honorary Artsy Fartsy model on Athena Cat Goddess Wise kitty’s blog.                                                                         

Mom used Lunapic and used the Art Watercolour and lessened the effect.  Then she rounded the border.                                                                     Here is our Cow Kitty in all his glory.                                                                     

MOL..Happy Canada Day from us Canucks.

 

Christmas Selfies

Here it is Christmas Eve and we are playing around near the tree.  We’re waiting for Santa,  We gotta do something while we’re waiting.  Cow Kitty dropped by and decided he’d investigate the tree.                                                                                  aackcrsm
You see that pile that looks like a dead body in the hall…well it is……OK, OK….a dead body is much more interesting than what it is. MOL  Use your imagination friends….what do you think we have in our hall?

Here is a much nicer picture of Cow Kitty as he posed for his picture.                                                                    aackzmsmIf, Cow Kitty behaved like a gentleman, like now, I wouldn’t have as many issues with him.

Kali got herself quite comfy under the tree for a snooze near mom’s wagon.  Dad didn’t want to try and wrap it.                                                                        aakalisleepzmcr

It is Selfie Sunday at The Cat on my Head and Kali is starring as our model.  Drop by and visit the other models.

catonheadbdI am busying myself with my intellectualized toy.  They must think I’m stupid….I am a meezer….I know things.  Like I know how to stick my paw in a cup and come up with treats.  Geesh!                                                                          aashoklook

What I want to know is where is the little person that keeps putting treats in them.  I’ve looked and looked but can’t find him.  Perhaps he lives under the cups. ” Anybody in there….come on out and chat,  I’d rather have Catnip Greenies in here.” Hmmm…what to do?

Thank you to all our friends for the wonderful Christmas wishes.  Here are just some of the cards.  We were overwhelmed by such kind and thoughtful friends.

aacczmNotice the pitiful plant…..this is my toy when I get bored.  It never seems to grow yet I’ve played smacky paw many times with it.

Merry Christmas my friends…..we love your visits.  Have a wonderful Day.

May Santa bring you all the Christmas joy your heart can hold!

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

I chewed on the feather wand and quickly snapped the picture with my paw.

aaaselfie

Shoko, you’re all blurry…..even the feather’s blurry.  Son of a snow frog!  I’ll have to try it again.

ok…5…4…3…2…Shoko, did I tell you, mom says the snow is here for the season.  What?…1… CLICK!

                                                                             aaacrankyshoksWhat a face Shoko!!  MOL                                                            cats-laughing

Friendly Fill-Ins with Kali

Hi friends, Kali here to introduce the Friendly Fill-ins and my fills for this week.

ellen_cat_badge_2-1-300x300Ellen of 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader are hosting this weeks Friendly Fill Ins.
1. I am most proud of …… my temperament.  I like everybody, peeps and kitties.  Layed back and relaxed is my style.  If I get angry, hiss and run after a kitty, you know this kitty is a total jerk and needs some smacky paw.  Visitors are always welcome as far as I’m concerned.                                                                      acowkali
2. I am embarrassed to admit…..I am afraid of bugs.  Just the idea of putting a squirmy or slimy bug in my mouth is disgusting.  Ewww…  However I like to watch them as long as they don’t touch the furs.                                                                          akalibug

3. My super-power might be….. power sleeping.  Mom says there is no other cat around that can sleep on demand like me.                                                            akksleepingsdone

4. I really wish I could…….  fly.  I would fly down and visit Nellie and then fly down to the States and visit Buddy…my boyfriend.

Kali’s Adventure

acstHi ya friends.  I sit atop the love seat back to tell you about today’s post.  I feel so tall sitting here and looking right in your face.

Mom was getting quite worried about Kali over the last 10 days.  Kali was lethargic, didn’t eat much, drank little and slept in the condo most of the day then coming to bed and continuing to sleep at night.  She would cry out in her sleep at night and mom would get up and pet her, all the time talking about fun things that Kali would like.

So guess what happened? That’s right, Kali won the award for sleeping more than any other cat in our vicinity.  MOL  Sorry mom, I couldn’t help but kid around.   On a more serious note, Kali had an appointment with the vet.  Off she went.  I said I’d wait here, no need for me to tag along, thank you very much.                                                                       ackalivetDr. Kalyn said Kali’s weight and hydration levels were good and she recommended mom give her Meticam for 3 days in a row to see if it lessened the pain in her arthritic joints.  Mom and dad were giving her Meticam but only when Kali was having difficulty walking.  Then the three of them headed back home.  Mom and dad took turns giving Kali her liquid oral med for the three days.  Was there a difference?  You bet your booties there was!!  Kali was racing around the hall on the second day and playing with toys, even though her paw was very sore before, now she was hitting toys with the paw.                                                                             akp                    Simon’s Cat hearts had to run from the paw.                                                                     akp2Sorry about the picture quality friends but in the first picture Kali”s paws were movin’ pretty fast.  I don’t know what happened in the second photo….her paw is clear as a bell but her face’s all fuzzy.  Her face wasn’t movin’ all that fast.  Go figure!

Have a great day and may all your mice be furless….nothing worse than furs up the nose when one is hard at play.                                                            Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

Oh No, Say it isn’t So….Not the Furs!

shokkazm

Hang onto your furs Shoks this smacky paw is going to rock…your..your…  What’s the matter Kali, you’re staring at me in my private place at the base of my tail?  That’s rude!

shokkast

I’m sorry Shoks but it looks like you’re turning grey at the base of your tail.  Nome?  Really??  You’re not blowing nip up my nose, are ya Kali?  No, of course not!  You are going grey at the base of your tail.  Look for yourself Shoks?

                                               shoktail I can’t see any grey Kali.  I’ll ask mom…she’ll tell me the truth.  You better clean the mess you made on the bed first.  You’ve brought half your toys onto the bed.  Mom’ll be ticked.  You’re right Kali.  A quick paw swish and we can get these toys on the floor and under the bed. MOL

Mom. am I going grey at the base of my tail.  Stick your tail up here Shoks.

shtaOh my, Kali’s right, you do have some grey hair but it’s like salt and pepper coloured.  NO!!!  Say it isn’t so, mom.  Einstein won’t like me anymore cause I’m going grey and he’s such a young mancat.  I’m only seven and Kali’s 13 and she doesn’t have any grey furs!  It’s not fair mom!!!   Have you really looked at my furs Shoko?  Maybe I have grey hairs and you never noticed.  I’ll check your fur and let you know if you have any grey ones Kali.

Is Kali  turning grey and how will Shoko tell Einstein she’s getting old?  Will mom find the toys under the bed or step on the toys that Shoko’s smacky paw missed?  Find out how Shoko and Kali’s world turns next post.

♫May the bird of paradise fly up your nose♫…..talk about painful..zowwee!  Can you believe it……another year gone and a new one yawning before us.  It’s just a kitten of a year right now but just you wait and see how she develops.                                                              Siamese_kitten2I was out last night at Cat Scouts where I ate the coolest treats and had my first sip of Nipagne….what a kick my friends.                                                                     00 Einstein and ShokoEinstein and I shared a Nipagne and a sub…..both were delicious.  We stole away for a couple of minutes for some fierce Cat Paw Wrestling.  All in good fun.  You never heard of Cat Paw Wrestling?  Well, its the newest craze here in Fort Meezer.  Here is an example;                                                              cat paw wrestlingHere are Kali and I demonstrating  “The Dance”…the precursor to Cat Paw Wrestling.;                                                     thedanceTry it….all the coolest cats are doing it.

Sunday Selfie with Model Shoko

 

The Cat on My Head is holding the Sunday Selfies and it was time I posed as Kali got Caturday Artsy day.  I took several pictures and mom loved all of them.  If mom wouldn’t who would?  These are samples;                                                                                                                                                  By the last picture the timer had quit and I was having a tough time clicking the picture.   My back paw was stretched about as far as it could go to click the picture.  This is why its so fuzzy.                                                                            Aww… done for this week.  Hope your Sunday is wonderful my friends.

We found out that Dharth of Purrince Siddhartha Henry an Ladymum’s Purrfect Pad is sick .  He has a serious bowel infection.  He needs the POTP.  So let’s show him how the POTP works and send our love with it.  Just click on the blog name and visit Dharth.                                                                             

 

 

 

 

From Food to Fashion

The day started pretty good.  Shoko and I dug into our Beef Flavoured Fancy Feast as soon as mom got up.  We were starving!  Mom has decided we don’t need kibble to nibble on all night because in the morning we are not hungry and we don’t care about our wet food.  Needless to say we cleaned the bowls.

                                                             Shoko and mom had a fast and furious game of yellow wand after brekkie and I watched. Occasionally I whacked the furriness on the wand.

             Woops, looks like mom’s paw made it to the screen.  You see how I’m telling her to get her paw outta the picture by staring…..but she didn’t catch on.                                                   Notice, Shoko is moving so fast, she’s blurry.  It had nothing to do with mom’s picture taking ability.  MOL

I decided to relax in the livingroom and Shoko went outside to see if Cow-Kitty was up to any mischief.  Well, these peeps came to the door and mom let them in with this big long hose.  The man went to the basement and the girl was taking the heating vents out.  Talk about an invasion of privacy.  I quickly slipped out of sight.

Shoko came to the window, took one look and listen and she was gone.                                                                           DSCN1856The  peeps kept making noise all day, well for an hour anyway.

They took a picture of all the dry wall and pieces of metal they found. I guess they take pictures just in case mom gets the idea they stole some drywall…..now that’s covering your butt.                                                         Mom says this house was made in 1996 and she has had the ducts cleaned 3 times since she moved here 7 years ago.  This shows what a crappy job the previous duct cleaners did, if there was still drywall and building material in the vents. 

After these loud and noisy peeps left Shoko came in and relaxed on mom’s desk.                                           DSCN4341After dinner mom brought out the heater she got for my hip.

DSCN4355

DSCN4357Now this is awesome….nice and warm on my booty.  A booty warmer just for me!

Shoko got a new wand as hers is pretty tacky with strings dangling all over.                                                                  DSCN4364Hopefully this wand will last for awhile even though Shoko beats them up.

Shoko then modelled the new scarf she got.

DSCN4359She’s looking pretty snazzy in that black scarf.  That desk is terrible mom! 

DSCN4363This was our Thursday.  Hope yours was a good one.
