A Letter From Cat Scouts Summer Camp

 

Kali, it’s so quiet without Shoko thundering down the hall to grab a straw before you do.

Personally, I like it, mom.  A relaxing and quiet time without Shoks blabbing at the crows like some demented squirrel.

Look, Kali, we got a letter. It looks like it’s from Shoko.

KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..PURPLE
SHOKO…..BLACK

Hi Mom, Kali, and Dad,

It’s me….Shoko! I am having so much fun at summer camp.
The first day we got settled in an awesome tent. Maggie is sharing the
tent with me. She’s so much fun. We ate popcorn and chattered into the night…we laughed till I wet myself.

The following day we went fishing and caught a Kokanee salmon.  Pete H. cooked it up on the BBQ with lemon and dill…just like you do mom.  It was delish!

We all went on a hike up this Half Dome Mountain. It was huge and steep….way too steep for Kali, she’d fall down. It was all I could do to hang onto the ropes and poles. MOL.

I wore my new outfit…it fits perfectly mom.                                                   
Did you notice the size of my head? Big, eh? Scout Andy said it was the altitude that gave me a big head. What’s a girl to do?

We finally made it to the top of Half Dome Mountain….what a view!

We got down the mountain a lot faster than going up. We were all back in camp and starving. Maggie and I headed over to the lodge for a fine meal.

In the evening we sat around the campfire and Obi said, I have a question, Denmaster. I was reading the Cat Scout Handbook whilst having my snack and on page fourteen it says that I should pack a poncho and rubbers. What if I\’m nootered?

Everybody started laughing even Denmaster.  I don’t get it mom?  What was so funny, eh?  You can tell me when I get home.

I’ll write again if I get the time mom.

 

Love to everyone,

Scout Shoko

New Year’s Eve Day

Who ha, get dat pig!  Here he comes Kali…snort, snort.

aakpigDo you think our friend Bacon looks like this pig, Shoko?  Sure, if he wore a grass skirt.  Snort, snort.

Hey it’s quiet, where’s mom?  She’s gone to the dentist.  Oh cwap…I know how she feels ….poor mom.  It’s just for a cleaning.  Just…. JUST for a cleaning…cleanings are, *HELL on nip.* They take weeks to get over.  You’re being dramatic again Shoko.  They’re not that bad.  Are too!

Mom’s home…my what clean teeth you have mom.  Hey what’s dad doing?  Kali…. Kali!

 Kali stands up yelling in her carrier.  Mew, Mew Mew….(translation)…run and hide Shoko. You don’t have to tell me twice Kali, I’m gone.  Cwap…get away mom.  Shoko lays down in her travel box.

I know where we’re going.  It’s no mystery Shoko.  We only ever go to the vet in the car.  Maybe we’ll get Dr. Sara, I like her.  She’s still going to poke and prod us, Kali.                                                                      aaarrivingvetI demand to go home…IMMEDIATELY, if not sooner.

aakscarrierNobody’s listening to me Kali.  I guess they mean business.                                                                           aasdrDr. Sara said I have excellent teeth.  They look like a 1 year olds teeth.  Wow, I’m doing good. I also have some arthritis in my back leg but not like Kali.  What?  NO, not me!  She said I have gained over a pound since I got my teeth out.  Lordy, not a diet.  Dr. Sara told mom to weigh me once a week to see if I’m still getting voluptuous (my word not hers) and if I am we’ll have to do something because I’m risking diabetes.  Mom’s told me what a terrible disease this is.  I’m depressed.  Dr, Sara gave me 3 needles and then I was really down in the dumps.

Kali was next.

aakdrKal was given the once over and prodded like a toy.  Dr. Sara showed mom how to massage Kali’s back and joints.  Kali’s iris’ have a fair bit of grey mist over them.  This means she doesn’t see well.  She would see things out of her peripheral vision better.  However if a cat moved, her eyes will catch the movement.

Then we went home.  There was no yelling or singing the song of our Meezer ancestors.  Dr. Sara gave us lots to think about.

When we arrived home I headed for the bathroom.img_0945OK mom, let’s weigh in like Dr. Sara said.  I don’t want to get diabetes or anything else.

 

May you have the lapse of memory to forget the people you never liked
The good fortune to run into the ones that you do,
And the eyesight to tell the difference.

It’s Christmas…NO….it’s Boxing Day…NO……It’s the day after..Pt. 2

 

Kali I thought this holiday season was supposed to be quiet and relaxing.  What happened?  There is way more happening than usual Shoko.  I don’t like it, myself.  I’m starting to get bags under my eyes from lack of sleep and these surprise visitors are giving me worry wrinkles.                                                                           aaoakst1Go away, I’m not ready to receive visitors…Shoo…shoo…  You called me Kali?   Well, NO,  This guy looks familiar, where have we seen him before?  This dude looks like Oak St. from last year.  Remember mom and dad took him to the SPCA and he was adopted after he was fixed.  That’s right.  What’s he doing back here?  I think maybe he likes it here.  Maybe he’s just hungry.  Mom filled up the food….there you go he had some kibble and left. Whew, now I can comb sparkles through my locks of fur.  What for? I want to achieve the best look for the Cat Scouts New Year Dance.  Buddy, from Timmy’s Tomcat Commentary blog and I are going to sneak in.  Einey and I can help you guys when you get there.  Sounds good sis.

Einstein and Buddy’s dad sent mom some Cadbury Choclates…wow.  Mom’s smacking her lips already.  Thank you so much Pete.  Angel Easy and Phenny’s parents sent some catnip pillows for us and dudes are they ever soft and cuddly.  Mom got a cat angel.  Is it ever cute.  It has a very sweet face.  Bacon from Piglove sent mom and dad t-shirts.  They loved them.  Mom’s t-shirt says ,”Cat Mom.”  Dad’s says,” I hate dogs!”  No it doesn’t Shoko, it has the Grinch on it….they know dad too well….MOL Kali got a funny looking guy with dangly legs….she sleeps with it. I got a soft pig in a hula skirt.  Dude she is fantabulous!  I can almost see her swaying.                                                                             aabacongifts

We thank everyone so very much for thinking of us.  The Christmas Cards we received on-line and right to our door were so appreciated…we have them on the complete, Kali, sniffer, work, mantle on the coffee table and our big table in the hall.  All we can say is WOW…you dudes and dudettes are awesome.  Thank you so very much.  You have made our Christmas complete!

Boxing Day came and Kali and I had to have a box so we went out and examined the Dude’s Hotel on the deck.  Cow Kitty was sunning himself but Kali didn’t see him.  She calls herself a cat?  Her sniffer doesn’t kitty, ice, dad, butt, bum, work!                                                                           aakssm

aackkcrzmSome kitty ate most of the kibble and the water is lower.  I dub this method of assisting the ferals and forgotten kitties a success.

It was a cold day as you can see by the ice around the water bowl.  We went charging inside when mom opened the door.  Hey, look Shoko dad has made us a box with entry ways.  Cool dad, thanks!

aabumstuckk1Oh how embarrassing my butt is stuck! Can I butter your muffin, Kali? MOL. mew, mew, Rolling On Floor Mewing My Whiskers Off!  What’s that poem mom says to us about, “Three Old Ladies Stuck In The Lavatory.”  *The third one’s name was Mrs  O’Kal-lee, she got stuck and couldn’t get her bum free.*  Dad will make the hole bigger to accommodate your more voluptuous regions. hehe

Do you know it’s also Artsy Fartsy Caturday today with Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty.  She’s holding the display of us kitties at her place so drop by and see the other models.                                                                       caturdayartbannerMom decided to use the Flow Art Effect from Lunapic so the picture of us looks painted.                                                                           aaflowarteffectksSHOKO…..BLACK

Waiting and Hoping …….Tooth Fairy Where Are You?

Here it is 2am and all is quiet.  Kali is snoring up a storm and so I wait alone for the Tooth Fairy.                                                                 ashokoteeth2I’m getting *yawn* sleepy.

ZZZZZZ……what was that noise?  You see, I have one eye open so I can see everything that happens.                                                                             aashoksleep
I know I heard something. Oh look, the Tooth Fairy’s been by.

ashokstoothfairyfindingsKali look what I got!  I got a toonie, two loonies and two quarters.  So you got two dollars for each tooth and fifty cents for the broken one.  Good hard cash.  I got a feather wand too.  That’ll be a lot of fun.  Just try to catch me feather…MOL.  Focus Shoko.

You got a cheque too.  Oh, oh.  She could be one of those butt(ers)  What???  You know one of those dad’s that don’t pay ail-a-money for their child’s support.  Oh…MOL…you mean deadbeat dads.  Ya,that’s it!!   The Tooth Fairy may not have the mew-lah In the bank to cover the cheque.  Believe me Shoko if you go cash this cheque, I guarantee you, that’s the least of your problems.                                                                   ashoktoofair

Shoko did you get a picture of the Tooth Fairy?  I hope so.  I was wearing my selfie remote and attached the motion activator before I went to sleep.  Looks like I got her.  The camera was on.                                                                            atoothfairy

This is the Tooth Fairy??   Egads!!  She’s not the least bit like I imagined.  It looks more like dad.  MOL  Even dad doesn’t look that crazy.  Mom says that the Tooth Fairy has helpers that step in and help her when she’s really busy. I guess this guy is one of them.  Probably a peeps Tooth Fairy helper.  I’ll bet hardly anybody likes to see him instead of the real Tooth Fairy so be kind Shoko.  OK Kali, I sure can understand why nobody would want to see him late at night. 

You know Kali, databbiesotrouttowne were right.  I got the exact sum they said I would, and not a cent less.  Did I get any treats?  Yes, you did.  You got 3 bags of Island Paradise, our favourite.  Mom put them away while you were busy.

What a night.  I could use some sleep.

Have a super day and may your fairy bring you everything you want.

Flat Shoko Has Left Canada

Kali, did I tell everyone about Flat Shoko that Dad made up for Cat Scouts?  I don’t think so Shoko.    Well butter my butt and slide me to the Catnip!  Sit down my friends have some nip and I’ll tell ya all about it.

Cat Scouts are giving scouts the opportunity to go visit their friends in Cat Scouts via a flat cat.  Well dad made a flat cat of me.  She’s a big sucker too!  I call her FOKO.                                                                                                         Foko

We mailed Foko  at the beginning of August out to DezizWorld in Oklahoma.  Dezi did a post about her visitors.  Click on DeziWorld for the First part and Part 2 for the second half of the visit.  Shoko’s flat cat boyfriend Finstein scame for a visit with brofur Fimmy.  Dezi’s mom made sure there was no look of hanky panky between Foko and Finstein.  Finstein slept at the head of the bed and Foko at the bottom.  We had tons of fun.  Mango from Cat Scouts also popped in for a visit.

Dezi telling Foko a secret...she's not very quiet and that accent...blew me away. What a fun gal.Dezi is going to tell Foko a secret. Foko says Dezi is not real quiet but has such a fantastic southern accent that Foko was mesmerized.  Lexi, Dezi’s sis, sat back and let Dezi enjoy her friends.  What a kind sister.

Dezi’s mom mailed us out to Finstein and Fimmy’s dad and we arrived last Wednesday.  What a houseful in Finstein’s family!  I never saw so many cats all in one place.  I especially liked chatting with Miss Fitz.  We had lots of girlie talk and giggles.  Go take a look at Tomcat Commentary by Tim…just click on the name.

Miss Fitz was so happy to have another female to talk with that she spilled the beans about most of the family’s secrets.  MOL  Way to go Miss Fitz.

Secrets with Miss Fitz

Finstein’s family lives in Pennsylvania.  Fimmy and Finstein’s dad mailed Foko, Finstein and Fimmy up to  Canada.  So they should be arriving in another 4 or 5 days.  We are expecting a couple of others from Cat Scouts too.  Woohoo…lotsa visitors.  Kali will be delighted.  Too bad Miss Fitz isn’t a flat.  Kali would love her, I just know those two would get along like a house on fire.  MOL, Miss Fitz, what a name!  I like her already.
