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 Cool Walk In The Lane

 

C’mon mom let’s go.  Do you have to put that big boot on?  You look odd but as long as you can get to the Lane. Mmmm…OK.                                           

All right…we’re off in a cloud of nip and bones!

Yuck…it’s all yellow and bare out here.  Maybe there’s a mouse about.

Here mewssseeeyyy…come play with me.  We’ll have fun.                                                    

Guess they don’t believe me.  I can hear little pawsteps running away.

I’m coming mom…there are so many prey smells around.

Time to go home?  OK, let’s hit the dirt and come again tomorrow.

That was Saturday, my friends.  Sunday arrived with a surprise.

Snow!! Oh, no….hope it disappears.

My bowl of water was very cold.                                                   Fortunately, it’s The Cat On My Head’s selfie Sunday so I took the picture mom had me shoot yesterday and blended it in with all the other furries pictures.  Come see it at The Cat On My Head’s blog.  Simply click on the name and be swept along with the tide.

Shoko Describes Summer Camp

 

Does it ever feel good to sleep beside mom again in our bed.  No rocks under my back or sticks digging into my legs when I lay out.  Did you miss me, Kali?  No…well maybe a wee bit.  It seemed so quiet without you rushing up and down the hall with your thunder-paws or balancing on the banister.                                                     

Well, I just gotta be me, Kali.

On with my tail of summer camp.  To even go to summer camp we needed to make a Bowline Knot and show it to Denmaster along with our letter of Purrmission from mom.                                              
My Bowline Knot

Our signed letter of purrmission.

We made a tye dyed scarf for our moms.  I loved playing in the dyes but Denmaster made us use gloves so we wouldn’t turn our paws all sorts of colours.  I worked on that scarf for hours and then dried it and made the colour set so it wouldn’t rub off on mom’s neck.                                              
Mom loves it and is wearing it now. It looks pretty on her.

Later that afternoon we went on a nature walk with our guide Homer the Black Cat.  He showed us so many birds….it was amazing. The Stellar’s Jay is British Columbia’s provincial bird and also a regular at Yosemite.  It’s a beautiful bird.  As far as bird’s go, that is.                                                    

The only other bird that blew me away was the California Peregrine Falcon. His body is about the size of a crow’s body but his wing span can be over 4 ft. Holy birdman…..that is huge! He goes like stink too, when he’s trying to catch prey….over 200 mph! Never want to get on his bad side.                                                     

The next day there was a S’mores competition. I entered some Nanaimo Bars because they are Canada’s answer to S’mores. I didn’t win but was delighted for the mancat that did win, he’s in my patrol and is an excellent cook.
Maggie and I had a very nice tent overlooking the river. Only thing was I kept having to visit the dirt patch and do my duty as the river kept the water running with me too. MOL
There was a poetry workshop where we learned the different types of poems.  We all submitted 3 poems.  There were 3 winners and I was one of them.  I won a Cat Scouts notebook.  Wowee!!

Then the Knowlege Bowl about the things we’ve seen and done at Summer Camp.  The fellow cat that won is also in our patrol.  He is very smart.  Almost Siamese smart but not quite.

Then something happened….I will tell you tomorrow.  It kept me on my claws.
