Haha…You look funny Shoko! Whatcha mean Kali? You gotta admit you don’t look very happy? It’s that darn Cappytan….he comes over growls at me and steals my nip. I know he’s rude. Thank goodness mom chases him away all the time. Forget him…the nip is almost finished for the year and we’ll get fresh stuff next year. He really burns my butt though! Cappytan is not in our thoughts tonight, Shoko, concentrate on the Fryday Fill-Ins from Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Click on the names to be taken to their blogs.
Like each week, we are given 4 statements to fill-in. The first 2 were done by Ellen and the last 2 by Annie. Here we go:
1. If I was a ghost, I would haunt…..THE VET’S OFFICE. I’D SCARE THE DEWORMING MEDICINE OUT OF THEM. DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER MY COSTUME SOME YEARS BACK. MAKE NO MISTAKE, I AM THE UNDEAD!
NO NEED TO EXPOSE MYSELF TO POSSIBLE DANGER.
All right…my turn Shoko.
3. My favourite scary story is…..PSYCHO. I TELL YA NORMAN BATES IS NUTTIER THAN THE M & M RED PEANUT! I DON’T MEAN THAT NEW GARBAGE MOVIE….I MEAN THE HORRIFYING 1960 PICTURE.
4. I will be so glad when…..SHOKO QUITS RUNNING AROUND THE HOUSE MEWING “BOO…SCARED YA…DIDN’T I, EH?”
Geez, I don’t do that Kali….really!
Mom and I went for a stroll yesterday, a long stroll. The sun was peeking through the clouds and there was just a spit of rain here and there. So off we went down the street. I was a little embarrassed, peeps were pointing and laughing at me….this is rude. Mom told me to ignore them and enjoy the ride. So I lay down and watched all the peeps and scenery go by. This is Gateway Facility for Seniors where mom volunteers every Monday. They have a nice bench mom relaxed on before we continued our travels.
Mom went strolling down a busy street where semi’s were rushing by me. I was getting a little scared but we got off of the sidewalk, stopped and talked with a lady that had purple hair. She had a shopping cart with the statement…”I can’t take it anymore.” She was a sad lady. Mom and I talked with her for a long time. She told us her story and we listened. By the time we left she looked a little more hopeful.
We strolled into the Youth Centre where dad volunteers and he was delighted to see us. He proceeded to show us the new wheelchair lift they had gotten recently. Mom and I just had to ride on it. After this amazing display where dad brought the bar down on mom’s head and I mewed in merriment, while mom was a little ticked, we went home.
Shoko was waiting for us on the fence and came dancing in the front door while mom picked up the mail. There was mail for Shoko! It was from Cat Scouts. The parcel held a kerchief from the April quest Shoko was on. Shoko wanted her new kerchief on like right now.
Shoko you look funny trying to wear those things. MOL What, you must be kidding mom…no it’s ok, I insist I don’t want to wear them. How are we suppose to wear these things, Shoko?
How dare you mom, messing up my fur! Keep your paws down. You look like a movie star in the sunglasses Kali. Really?? Maybe I shouldn’t struggle so much and enjoy the look. How do I look Shoko? Like a ghostie wearing sunglasses. Meeting you is a haunting encounter, Kali. MOL How rude, I’m not a ghostie and these sunglasses are beautiful. Whatever turns your crank, Kali. I feel good about myself and my sunglasses. I hate to tell you this Kali but you are just one of many that will wear these sunglasses. You mean everyone in Blogville will wear these? Well, no, only a select number of kitties will wear them. Oh good. I was afraid for a minute some Woofie might give us all fleas from the sunglasses.
Look for us in the Pawlympics. One place we will be, is at Noodle’s Raspberry Throw/Tongue Curl.
Canada Day was yesterday and what a day it was! It was a cold and snowy day. It was not Shoko! It was a warm and sticky day! I don’t think so my dear white pile of fur . Shoko its July, we don’t get snow in July. There is no way my furs were sticky under my arm pits. I have never sweated. Of course not. mom says women glow and men sweat. Have you ever seen Buddy sweat? I’ve never seen Einstein’s lovely floofy tail drenched in sweat. He’s gorgeous and no sweat….
As I was saying yesterday was Canada Day so mom and dad went to the park to see the Canada Day celebrations. They were gone for several hours and it was dark when they came home. I was trying to be brave as we were down to the last kibble. No it wasn’t dark Shoko. They were gone for maybe an hour or two and we had lots of food.
Talk about sweating….bet those dudes and dudettes were hot.
Just a glimpse of our Canada Day celebrations.
Now, it’s time for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Artsy Caturday blog hop. Take a hop over there and view all the other anipals that had to put up with their mom’s messing with their picture.
Here I am sound asleep in our stroller. Mom used this picture to start messing with for Caturday Artsy Day.
When we last left Shoko she was shattered by the knowledge she has grey furs at the base of her tail. We tune in today to find Einstein’s reaction to Shoko’s devastating news about getting old. Kali on the other paw is rather enjoying Shoko’s turmoil. Payback time for all those sneak attacks and stolen treats.
What else could I do to cover my grey, Kali…something that’s cheap. I don’t have the money for a dye for just 2 inches on my tail. I know mom wouldn’t agree with it. Well, there is one other option that won’t cost anything. What is it Kali? Mom has felt pens for labelling food. I’ll bet she’d lend you her black one. Not a bad idea Kali. Mom would have to colour me….she has thumbs….we don’t. Mom can you colour me with your felt pen and cover the grey? Do you think this is such a good idea? What will happen when you go out in the snow or when your sister slops water on the floor and you decide to sit down? Cwap! I never thought of that. I guess the black would change the snow’s colour and make a black mark on the floor. It’s rude to laugh at my problem Kali! I can’t help it Shoko, you’re such a drama queen….jeepers! You know Einstein…….just talk to him and tell him about the grey furs. I’ll bet ya tonight’s dehydrated chicky treats he understands. I guess I have no choice. *sigh* I had mom write to Einstein and I was so worried but I received his e-mail so fast, I couldn’t believe it. This is the gist of the e-mail :
Hang onto your furs Shoks this smacky paw is going to rock…your..your… What’s the matter Kali, you’re staring at me in my private place at the base of my tail? That’s rude!
I’m sorry Shoks but it looks like you’re turning grey at the base of your tail. No…me? Really?? You’re not blowing nip up my nose, are ya Kali? No, of course not! You are going grey at the base of your tail. Look for yourself Shoks?
I can’t see any grey Kali. I’ll ask mom…she’ll tell me the truth. You better clean the mess you made on the bed first. You’ve brought half your toys onto the bed. Mom’ll be ticked. You’re right Kali. A quick paw swish and we can get these toys on the floor and under the bed. MOL
Mom. am I going grey at the base of my tail. Stick your tail up here Shoks.
Oh my, Kali’s right, you do have some grey hair but it’s like salt and pepper coloured. NO!!! Say it isn’t so, mom. Einstein won’t like me anymore cause I’m going grey and he’s such a young mancat. I’m only seven and Kali’s 13 and she doesn’t have any grey furs! It’s not fair mom!!! Have you really looked at my furs Shoko? Maybe I have grey hairs and you never noticed. I’ll check your fur and let you know if you have any grey ones Kali.
Is Kali turning grey and how will Shoko tell Einstein she’s getting old? Will mom find the toys under the bed or step on the toys that Shoko’s smacky paw missed? Find out how Shoko and Kali’s world turns next post.
