Christmas Eve

I’m so excited!!  My tummy’s all twirly inside like I ate something off.  I’ll never sleep tonight…. how about you Budd?  I’ll be keeping you company at the window tonight, Tyebe.
I heard something on the roof.  It’s him Budd…it’s him!  Tyebe it’s still light out.  He’s not coming till we’re tucked in our beds. Dang.                                                              
Mom’s going to read Budd, let’s go.                                                             You too, Shoko.                                                                        It’s so comfy here.  I’m getting sleepy.  Hurry up mom and read before I fall asleep.

 

‘Twas The Night Before Christmas

’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse
The stockings were hung by the chimney with bling
In hopes that more cat treats Santa would bring.
The kitties were snuggled all cozy in beds
With visions of catnip and toys in their heads
Cat mom and cat dad spent all evening wrapping
With gifts under the tree they went to bed happy
When down in the kitchen there arose such a clatter,
They sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Right down the staircase they flew like a flash,
Racing into the great room they heard a great crash.
That’s when they found them—each cat with tail swishing
All focused and staring, growling and hissing
Ignoring their parents’ attempts of distraction
The cats kept their eyes on the prize and the action.
And then without warning the cats began chasing
The small furry creature on which they’d been gazing.
More rapid than eagles they flew down the hallway
Ignoring the shouting of mom and dad calling.
Over the table, the chairs and straight down the hall,
Dash away, dash away, dash away all!
All you could hear was thundering feet
As they ran and then leaped to the top of the tree
The presents were scattered from under the tree
As tinsel and baubles all fell underneath.
That’s when they saw him—he peeked his head out,
To locate the cats-a cute little mouse!
Through howling and protests cat mom and cat dad
Grabbed each of the cats, scrambling fast.
Locked in the bedroom they still heard meows
As they went back downstairs wondering what to do now?
The mouse blinked his eyes and tilted his head
Letting them know they had nothing to dread.
With a squeak and a dart he jumped to floor
And he raced towards cat dad who held open the door.
Before he ran off he wiggled his nose,
Gave a quick wink, finally turning to go.
The excitement was over, they turned out the lights,
Merry Catmas to all, and to all a good night!

MOM…….MAROON

Things are Lookin’ Good

*sigh*  Are you leaving us mom?  Ummm…just for a short while Kali. Who will read to us and give us treats?  Is dad staying home?  N no…he’s coming with me.  Judy will stay with you every evening she’ll be here and she’ll give you treats.  When I get home, I’ll read to you.    Maybe Judy will even read to you.                                                             

Shoko and I will do our best mom and welcome Judy to our house. Glad to hear it Kali.                                                                          Shoko, mom has no idea what’s going to happen when she’s gone. MOL  Great, the coast is clear Kali.                                                               

May your pawty have no poopers.                                                                   

Shoko Prepares for the Vet Clinic

ashokhome Shoko is looking for some chow but there is not even a lone kibble to take away the hunger pangs.

ashoktooth2Dad caught Shoko as she was leaving the kitchen.  Shoko, mom and dad left for the vet clinic at 7:30am this morning.  Shoko was brave but sung out her contempt for mom and dad’s actions almost immediately after being tossed carelessly in her box…sorry, I was seeing the events from Shoko’s viewpoint.  Shoko was placed lightly in her box.  Better, eh?  Off they went as I waved good-bye at the living room window. 

 Once at the Vet Clinic, Shoko was weighed again and she weighs the same as last week….imagine, no gorging because of the upcoming surgery.  Great.

ashokboxes1Shoko got back in her box and was taken to pre-op.

There you have it friends.  Shoko is being operated on as you read this post.                                                                         SHOKOKALI2

 

Story Time Review…..The Sea Puurtector Files Pt. 1

 

The first book of the series one must read is, “Latitudes and Cattitudes.” This little book introduces readers to Xander de Hunter and Merlin living in Seattle, Washington.                                                                        aersh

Isn’t this the book mom just finished Kali?  Yep, it’s a James Bond type of story but with us felines and from Xander’s point of view.

Mom says she would have been lost if she hadn’t read, “Latitudes and Cattitudes. ” This little book is a prequel to The Sea Purrtector FIles  and its  free.  Can’t get any cheaper than that.

Our hero is Xander de Hunter, a skillful feline.  Xander is a seal-point Siamese so he is a beautiful specimen.  I believe he is a distant cousin of mine, Kali.  Sure Shoko, whatever you say. *rolls eyes*                                                                   akawashcrAs our story opens, Xander has just won a kick boxing championship.  A white cat by the name of Merlin approaches Xander requesting his assistance to find his littermate.  Our hero doesn’t bat an eye even though Merlin’s sister is lost on the ocean and Xander is deathly afraid of water.                                          Catitudes and Latitudes pic

After reading “Latitudes and Cattitudes” mom immediately started reading “The Red Claw.”

The location has changed for The Red Claw. We first see our hero, Xander de Hunter on his boat in Jamaica. Our hero has been summoned from the ranks of Catomondo by a letter marked with a Red Claw, a very urgent sign indeed. One of cat society’s royalty is missing. Time for Xander to show his prowess as the Sea Puurtector, even though he’s being shadowed by one of Dogdom’s finest agents…

The shenanigans between Xander and some island residents is priceless.  We  meet up with Sir Simon who holds the important position of Jamaican Purrtector in Catamondo.  So if you like a happy feeling before you close your eyes for the night, we urge you to start reading the Sea Purrtector Files.

So who’s the author mom?  Oh didn’t I say?  No!  Well, her name is Jeanne Foguth and she knows boats and cats.  She’s been over to the Caribbean, observing the locals in their environment.                                                        MerlinwhizzThis is Merlin, author Foguth’s inspiration for Simon.
