Shopping Around The World for April….Reminder

Hi folks, it’s me…Shoko.  Mom and dad made it home last night.  What a sight they were!  Tired and shabby looking….I had to rub my paws over my baby blues.                                                           Kali has welcomed dad home but not mom…Kali is giving mom the cold shoulder where I am delighted she is home.  I actually missed her.

Now, on to our Shopping Around the World for April.  We are handling the SAW for April.  We have decided to have recipes done with seafood.  You have a special tuna salad sandwich recipe…write and tell us all about it, including the prices in your area for the ingredients.  Got a good recipe for jellyfish without the stinger, let us know.  A cold or hot meal is great.  Remember to spell the recipe out as mom is not exactly the greenest nip on the vine these days. MOL

Shopping Around The World and your recipe will be held on April the 31st. folks.  My mouth’s waterin’ already.                                                                          

PPS: Mom screwed up already. Yes, Two Spoiled Cats, we meant the 30th of April. lol.

The Party Planning Begins

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..RED VIOLET

It’s time we asked mom when she’s going away so we can plan our wee pawty with the gang from Blogville.  Should we tell mom about the pawty Shoko?  Are you kidding….no way.  She would be upset and give Judy some terrible rules like hide  the nip and put all the toys away.  I have mom’s credit card number and have been paying attention when she buys something.  You better not get mom in trouble or you’ll be looking for a new home.  You mean she’d get rid of me over a few measly dollars.  With her credit card!  No, mom wouldn’t get rid of you….I would.  You don’t hurt the ones you love Shoko, not ever.  So we do this pawty proper like or we have none.  I see what you mean Kali and I won’t use mom’s credit card.  How bout her emergency money?  That’s border line  bad behaviour Shoko.  Well, how else are we going to get the money for a happening pawty?  Steal the things we need?  Mom would be horrified if we stole anything.  She just wouldn’t tolerate that kind of behaviour from either of us.  We weren’t brought up to steal what we want.  Well, I don’t have any idea then. *sigh* 

Stay still Shoks, you’re making me dizzy with your blurriness.  How bout your Da Bird wand…..we could get a few dollars for that at the …..No way sis, Einey gave me Da Bird for Christmas.  I’m never, ever, ever parting with it.  OK, OK…cool your booties, I won’t take it away.                                                                        Hi there mom, we were just talking about you and dad and your vacation.  Where are you going?  We’re going to France Shoko.  FRANCE…you mean like Paris.  Exactly!  Cool, that’s where I went with Cat Scouts.  You going to see the Eiffel Tower?  Oh we can’t miss seeing such a wonderful place.   Did you know that Einey and I went hang gliding off the Eiffel Tower. Really, weren’t you scared?  Well, a little but Einey was with me.   He would save you right Shoko?  No….if I die in the jump, so does he.                                                                 See, don’t we look cool.  How long will you be gone mom?  A couple of weeks Shoko.  We leave next week.    We’re also headed for London after France.  So you are going to more places than Paris in France?  Yes, you betcha.  We’re going to see Phenny and his parents.  No seriously mom, anyone I would know?  Phenny and his parents Shoko.  They live across a huge pond……you can’t jump that far and our magic carpet wouldn’t hold you and dad.  You’ll have to wait and see the pictures when we get back.

Friends, friends.  That’s it Kali!  I got it.  We can ask our friends to bring one fun food or drink to the pawty.  By the time 10 friends are here the choices will be fantastical.  I like that Shoko….we can supply some things like nip, some silvervine and chicky broth with a blob of chicky in it.  We can get some good games going too.  We have to have a catchy name.  How about Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty?  Let it be……come one and all to our Lucky Pot Pawty.  The last week of March is when we are having the funniest pawty you have ever seen.

 

May you never find a cat in your burger!  That makes no sense, Shoko.  Does too!  You never heard of a cat burger?  That’s a cat burglar Shoko.  You say burglar I say burger….same diff.                                                                           

Selfie Sunday With Kali In Charge

aakalispoon4Mom introduced me to the unstinky hypoallergenic wet food.  I wasn’t about to touch this garbage.

Gimme Beads and Fancy Things

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, a French Catholic tradition that celebrates debauchery before Lent begins with Ash Wednesday for Christians. The festival date varies from city to city, but most Americans base their celebration of Mardi Gras off of the famous celebration in New Orleans.                                                                                  mardimaskKali do you remember when mom and dad went to New Orleans?  Oh ya, they had fun.  So did we…MOL,  Dai$y of databbiesotrouttowne was a riot.  The trout she brought to the party was so delicious and big.  This was the first time we tasted trout, where has it been all our life?

Mom and dad went south right after Mardi Gras two years ago..  Mom brought us back some beads that were hanging on the trees.                                                                            shoko-with-mardi-gras-beads

Mom said the houses were so colourful and the streets so pretty.

dscn0836This is a circle street near the Confederate Museum.  They had an Italian sandwich sitting on a park bench watching the birds.                                                        shoko-withmaskDo you get the feeling mom and dad are going away again this year?  I do Shoko.  Wonder where they’ll be off to this year?  Mmmm…I wonder.  We’ll be partaying again this year then.

 

May you sleep like the pigs….How do pigs sleep?

With their eyes closed of course.                                                                                        sistersinarmswinter

caturdayartbanner

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

 It’s that day of the week where mom practices her artistic talent….usually with less than stellar results.  Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty is putting on the artsy blog hop.  Jump over to her dimension and view all the artsy anipals in Blogville.  Simply click on the highlighted name of the blog hop and you’ll see your friends.

Mom decided to take this picture of Kali and I and play around with it.                                                 aashokkalismShoko was afraid her straw would roll off her legs and I’d get it. MOL  You should see that thing….holes up and down it and it’s bent where she sat on it.

The next trick was to make the picture oval.                                                                   aashokkalitogetherPretty snazzy looking ladies, eh?

The lively colouring of the art effect was added..  Mom chose the Yarn Effect.                                                                          aashokkaliyarnWe’re made of yarn.  I don’t like it Kali…..I look stringy.  It’s different Shoko.  Mom is trying to be versatile.  I still don’t like it.

Finally mom tried the Floating Art Effect for Shoko.                                                           aashokkalifloatig

There we go.  I’m happy now.  I look fetching.  Ya, go fetch me a nipitini sis. MOL

May your inner tiger never eat all your treats.                                                                         sistersinarmsfall
