Christmas At Our House

 

We had a very happy Christmas.  Mom gave us turkey for brekky and for supper and we sucked it down like the turk was Greenies.  Then it was off to the tree standing in the living room.  Dad was playing with the train…whoops, sorry dad.  Dad was fixing the tracks cause they needed lubricating to keep the train on them.  I didn’t tell him I’ve been batting at the train and then running like crazy up to the condo with Mistle Poop at the door. mew, mew, mew.                                            I just like to say poop! mol

Santa brought me a remote control snake.   This dude is a real horror.  The snake, not Santa!  Scared the crap outta me….looks so real.

 I just had to poke this guy…MOL                                                     

Kali was as cool as ever but this snake startled her too.                                                    

Kept Kali awake for some time.

We have never, ever seen a live snake up here.

Next was Kali’s gift from Santa. She got what she asked for.

Here she is sniffing her Pet Hut to see if Cow Kitty’s been in it and lost a few spots.                                                  

I examined the hut on the inside for any deadbeats hanging around and Kali examined the outside for drafts. The hut passed the test.

 

I gave mom a mousie wand with feathers.  I figured she was worth it.                                                     

I could choose no feathers or for a bit more get the feathers. The feathers are just right for mom….don’tcha think? I didn’t have quite enough for the feathered wand so dad helped…thanks, dad.

Have a great Thursday friends.

Mom and Dad Fly the Friendly Skies

Did mom tell you about their trip to France and the UK, Shoko?  She told me about France, Kali.  Did she tell you about the UK?  She did.  Then between the two of us we can tell our friends what they did on their vacation.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                   

In the middle of March mom and dad said goodbye and we never saw them again….whoa Shoko, they did come home.  Well, it was like 3 weeks till we saw those bleary  eyes again.  That’s like forever for a feline.                                                                            You have to be the biggest drama queen in Prince George, Shoko!

Off they flew down to Vancouver and to their motel  Dad grabbed someone else’s suitcase in the airport and never noticed until the airport called and told him.  Mom’s niece drove dad back to the airport to get their suitcase.

 When the family gathered for dinner, they all gave mom the respect she deserved and kissed her ring.  Oh brother!  Mom is not the godfather of her family.  Who is then?  Nobody…it’s just a normal family.  Mom has a normal family….I don’t think so, there’s got to be something odd about them.  Whatever Shoko.

The next day they got up and flew on Air Canada to Montreal.  Four hours of cramped legs and a TV  set so close it was almost up her nose as the person in front set their seat to go back several feet.  Ok, Kali a few inches.  Geesh!

Mom was off the plane right smartly in Montreal and 3 gates away was the flight to Paris.  She quickly rushed over as they were calling for everyone to board.  Mom and dad were on the plane right smartly and then they sat and sat on the plane as the plane needed de-icing but there were two planes waiting to be de-iced first.

Finally the plane took off for Paris.  Mom was excited to be going to such a well-known and romantic city.  Six hours later, the thrill of going to  Paris had worn off as she felt sweaty, hot and incredibly tired.  Dad was snoring in the seat beside her.  She wanted to poke him but restrained herself.

At long last they arrived at Charles De Galle Airport in Paris.  The hotel chauffeur gave them the ride of their life.  There were mopeds all over the street, weaving in and out of traffic, that was bumper to bumper.  They reached the hotel safely and leaped to solid ground.                                                                   The best picture of a moped in traffic mom could get.  The bikes go like stink.

 

After checking into their little room, mom and dad went for a drink of Pepsi in the hotel lounge.  There was a small courtyard off the lounge so our pawrents decided to partake of the fresh air.  No Pepsi but Coca Cola everywhere in France.  Coke will do in a pinch.                                                             Does she not look like an enthusiastic explorer? MOL

Next installment finds mom and dad trying to navigate the Paris  transportation system.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

 

 

What Shall We Call This Thing?

Dad was looking around the internet and saw an interactive toy for us.  He wasn’t sure if we’d bother with it….I guess we have a reputation as picky so he just did the basics to see if there would be any interest.

We have no name for this toy but here is a picture of the toy.  Note the toy has brown paper because it is the finished product unlike what you will see in the other pictures.                                                                               DSCN4573This is easy to make.  You will need a small box, 6 plastic cups. tape and the scissors to cut holes for the plastic cups.  Inside you will want to put some treats.

Our box wouldn’t close so dad needed tape to close it up.  He carved out the 6 holes and put the plastic cups with 2 beef temptations in each cup.

The first to test the effectiveness of this toy was Kali.

kalislot1.Kali was not impressed and wandered away.

Elfin John wanted to see what the fuss was about.                                                                                 elfinsearch     There was no nip in the plastic cup and Elfin John soon lost interest.

The last one to try it was me.  I was not particularly impressed at first glance.

Then I started to poke about.  Hey, this thing makes noise and it smells like beef.

aaa

Note:  with more feverish activity, the cups turn this way and that…perhaps if dad glued them to the floor…mmmm…just sayin’.

Yes, this will do nicely, thank you dad….. I love the smell of beef in my cups.  MOL
