Friendly Friday Fill-Ins

We are joining Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie Of McGuffy’s Reader in the Fill-ins.  Ellen puts out the first two sentences and Annie the last two.                                                          SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

1. The best part of where I live is…… IT’S QUIET AND ON A PREY FILLED LANE.                                                       

2. The worst part of where I live is …..PEEPS TEND TO DROP OFF THE CATS THEY NO LONGER WANT IN OUR LANE.

This is Oak St.  Mom and dad took him to the SPCA because though he was friendly and happy….he had no home.  Mom phoned every day to see how he was.  He was neutered and 5 days later was adopted.  A happy ending and a furever home. 

My turn fuzzy black paws.
3. If I had…..A CAPE AND THE MUSKLES, I would….SLAP THIS OFFENDING PEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT WITH NO FOOD OR WATER.  SUFFER LOSER!                                              

4. My favourite article of cold weather clothing is…. THE HEAT REGISTER!  If I could tear it out of the floor, I’d wear it around and feel the warm air all day long.                                               

Have a great Fryday friend.

A book I would like to see made into a movie is ...THE WARRIOR SAGA .  THERE ARE FOUR PEEPS THAT WRITE THE BOOKS AND USE THE PSEUDONYM ERIN GREY. THE STORIES ARE ABUNDANT AND JERK ON YOUR EMOTIONS AS ONE DOES GET ATTACHED TO THE CHARACTERS.                                                             TAKE A PEEK AT THE WARRIOR BOOKS AT http://www.warriorcats.com/books.

 

2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say:                                                        Then we’d watch peeps feel guilty for not hugging their cat before they left the house. MOL

My turn Shoko.  Take it away Kali.

3. I have a hard time SHARING my salmon treats.  They are so good.  I do share though….mom makes me.                                                                          

 

4. I really enjoy …..SUN PUDDLES THEY ARE VERY HARD TO FIND AT THIS TIME OF YEAR BUT WE KEEP LOOKING.

Introducing Mrs. Odboddy’s Next Adventure

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

Hey Kali has mom finished reading this story of Pioneer life in the Rockies yet?  I don’t think so Shoko.  She must be pretty close though.  Do you like it?  Naw!  They certainly were mean to animals way back in the 1800’s.  I don’t think they thought of animals as having a family and loving their children and spouse.  It was wham, bam….,”We can get $15 for this pelt.” It makes my fur bristle.”                                                                       aakalishoktalkI heard from Ling-Ling the other day and Elaine Faber has written another book involving that kooky lady, Mrs. Odboddy.  You mean the , shall we say, the character type lady with chickens in her house? MOL  Ya that’s her!  She’s a lot of fun.  Mom could take some lessons from her and start looking for spies….wouldn’t that be fun?  I don’t think so Shoks…..mom’s not that dingy…yet.  Besides who’d feed us while mom is busy chasing spies and foiling plots against the government?  Never thought of that Kali.  Guess you’ve got a great point.  She needs to change the kit lit and wash my bedding and clean up when we eat too much grass and barf on HER bedding.

So what’s this story called Shoko?  It’s called  Mrs. Odboddy Undercover Courier.                                                                        mrs_odboddy_frontsmDid Ling-Ling mention what it was about Shoko?  Ling-Ling sure is a sweetheart and so pretty too.  Cut it out Shoko…she looks just like you, a well cared for Seal Point Siamese cat.  Get on with the story sisteh!  Ling-Ling gave me a segment of the story so peeps could get some idea what it is about.

It’s 1943 and Agnes and Katherine are preparing to accompany Mrs. Roosevelt on her Pacific Island tour. Agnes carries a package from Colonel Farthingworth to President Roosevelt in Washington, D.C. Convinced the package contains secret war documents, Agnes expects Nazi spies to try and derail her mission, but she is determined to protect the package and put it into the President’s hand, whatever the cost.

Before leaving town, however, she has to find a place for those gol-darned four bantam roosters–- Myrtle, Sofia, Mrs. Whistlemeyer and Mildred!

Agnes and Katherine travel by train to Washington, D.C. Along the way, she meets Irving, whose wife mysteriously disappears from the train; Nanny, the unfeeling caregiver to little Madeline; two black soldiers bound for the Tuskegee airbase to train as pilots, and Charles, the WWII veteran with PTSD who lends Agnes an unexpected helping hand when things go exceedingly wrong. Who should Agnes trust? Who is the Nazi spy? Is there even a Nazi spy or is it all in Agnes’s imagination?

In a final near deadly showdown In Washington, D.C., Agnes faces a formidable challenge and is forced to accept the possibility that she isn’t the hometown warrior she always thought she was.

Can Agnes overcome multiple obstacles, deliver the package to the President and still meet Mrs. Roosevelt’s plane before she leaves for the Pacific Islands? If you’ve read Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot, you’ll know that she will do everything in her power as the scourge of the underworld she thinks she should be.

Ohh…the book sounds exciting Shoko!  Can mom get it for her Kindle?  Fur sure Kali.  The book came out last Thursday in paperback and e-book.

Ling-Ling said Elaine wants to know if you enjoyed Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot? Would you like to see more of her adventures? So let us know my friends.

Follow Through And a Great Idea

Mom and I weighed in this morning to start my, what would it be…it’s not a diet but a being conscious of how much I eat.  I know, this will be My SHOKO ALERT.  We only have to weigh in once a week. Then mom and I headed downstairs for my exercise wearing my tiger vest.  Well, mom headed down to the basement, I was very slow and followed 10 minutes later.  I mince along like a little old lady in a hurry.  Dad laughed at me…..I was so embarrassed….I gave him the evil eye like only I can do.

After our jaunt about the basement we headed upstairs.  Well, mom headed upstairs and I slowly followed.  It was time for Kali’s ointment for the patch of fur she’s scratched out.  Mom this is a really bad picture.  You should take a picture BEFORE you put the ointment on.  Now it looks like a wet and messy part of her fur.  Actually the bare spot is about the size of 4 silver dollars.  It’s a big patch.                                                                           kalibareskinKali was very good and even rolled on the side so she couldn’t scratch the bare patch.                                                                     kalizm

It’s very cold here again. The water outside is starting to freeze except on one side so the hotel clients can still get water. Not much of a sign of cats nor peeps.

Keep bundled up my friends and see ya on the flip side of cold.

May your ducks be in a row and your…

Hey Shoko…..I just heard Nellie’s been sick, really ill.  What?  My Nellie….the queen of The Cat From Hell?  Geez, how is she now, Kali?  I think she is a bit better.  What can we do for our fellow Canuck that will cheer her up?  I know Kali….how about if we have her up for a visit?  It’s awful cold up here, Shoko.  She’s certainly not used to the cold anymore what with living in the banana belt of BC.  We can keep her warm inside and I know she’d love to see the hotel guests.  She can hiss or stick out her tongue at them.  It’ll be fun.  We have to ask her mom first Shoko and then do whatever her mom thinks is right.  Let’s call Nellie and tell her of our plan.

RRRRRRINGGGGG

Hello?  Is this you, Nellie…The Cat From Hell’s queen?                                                              aacellphoneshokIt’s mes.  This must be Shoko from the north?  Ya, MOL.  How are you feelin’ Nellie?  Mes is better but not on top of things. We even got a picture of you here on the phone. You are lookin’ real good to us girlfriend. Kali is with me and we wanted to know how you feel about visiting with us for a bit?  Mes never been way up there.  Mes want to go visit you and Kali.  I must tell mom but she’ll want to know how we’ll get there.  I have a magic carpet which makes the ride in seconds.  You won’t have the chance to get cold.                                                            nandphoneMes excited but mommy must be told and it depends on her.  I’ll ask her tonight Shoko and let you know.  Sounds good Nellie.  Really build it up Nellie so she’ll feel guilty saying no.  You know, use the tricks you taught me in Cat From Hell classes.  MOL, good memory Shoko.  Tuttees Shoko…Ring my chimes Nellie…MOL..Mew later.

SHOKO…..BLACK

May the vet never earn a Loonie out of you.

Remember Me Thursday

Yes, I remember the wonderful days vividly!  Those carefree days of summer in the veggie garden.  I watched Cow Kitty make a fool of himself attacking the pea netting.                                                             aaaagardenshoksmI’m sniffing to see if there is enough water here for the peas…..if not I must contribute…MOL

Cow Kitty was delighted to be back in the vegetable garden too.  Sitting up on the frame for the peas, surveying the garden..  See how well the Scarlet Runner beans produced this year.                                                                         aackbeans

I dipped my paws in the pool water. The pool was an oasis for all thirsty creatures that braved Fort Meezer.  We did have more water in the pool.  Luckily there were no ducks swimming in it.  Cow Kitty would have leaped in the pool if that happened.

We were introduced to our new stroller. I had reservations. I mean a basket on wheels?  Seriously?  I had no idea of the thrills ahead.

Get outta here you yappy woofies….your mama wears diapers!!  MOL…..hiththtth!                                                   aaaaaashokostroll

Kali was delighted with a slow stroll through the neighbourhood. She is very nosy and happy when out and about meeting peeps.

Kali was happy to let the woofies be and enjoy the fresh air.

We had several walks down the Lane.  Cow Kitty even came with us.  I didn’t like him with us, he’s too bossy.                                                  aaaaashokckkaliOh mom, can you enlarge this picture?  Kali is way behind on the right hand side but she looks like a dot.  She always seems to dance to her own tune.                                                                      ackskalIs that the best you can do?  Kali’s still a dot but everyone can see I’m telling Cow Kitty off and he could care less.

 

We participated with the others with Phoebe’s sunglasses.  I felt like a movie star but all was dark.  Kali wore them too. She’s not impressed with mom putting them on.  Whatever!!

Kali and I entered a few events at the Pawlympics, Easy’s Tuneful Farting, Noodle’s Tongue Rolls and Raspberries and Dezi’s Fly Fishin’.  My favourite was Easy’s Tuneful Farting cause it really messed with Kali’s head. MOL                                                                          kalitunefulfartingKali is embarrassed because ladies don’t talk of these terrible bodily functions.

We won  ribbons and a certificate for our efforts in Easy’s Tuneful Farting.                                                                   img_0815

This summer I had two teeth out and met the substitute Tooth Fairy.  Scary and hairy!                                                                           atoothfairyMom took me for a walk on my harness and found out I can slip out of the harness like a magician.                                                                      aashokcrleashMOL….that was fun!  The look on mom’s face was priceless.

 

These have been great summer moments in our lives and a fantabulous way to share on Remember me Thursday.

To keep peeps up to date.  Here is a picture of mom’s finger without the bandage.  No more drugs or pain just a little tightness on the finger.                                                              aafingerniShe gets the stitches out tomorrow.  She’s some happy about it.

There you have it our happy memories of the summer.  Tomorrow is the first day of Fall and the cold weather.

May all your worms be in the ground my friends! MOL                                                                   SHOKOKALI2
