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.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

 

 

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

KALI…..ORANGE

NELLIE…..GREEN

May the vet never earn a Loonie out of you.

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.

abeewater1The water in the saucer is for the kitties that wander over here and are thirsty after partaking of the Nip.  The stones in the saucer are places for the bees to have a drink.  I try not to grab any flies taking the water…I usually am busy with my watering chores and don’t see them.

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?
