In Purrsuit of Flavours…..For 2021!

Holy Catmando, Shoko.  The next  episode of In Purrsuit of Flavours will be the first for 2021.  A new year and new hope brings promise.  What shall we make to honour this new year?  I dunno……how about it Nelly do you have any ideas?                                                 

What do you mean….”NO”.   What are we going to do with the leftovers? I know….let’s throw them away and start over again.

I don’t know Tyebe. I don’t think mom would be happy with us throwing food away.  Mom wants to use up the old stuff…..I know… we’ll FREEZE IT!  Then nobody’ll want it Tyebe cause everybody knows it’s old enough to start  growing whiskers.  In fact dad won’t want anything frozen just in case freezing old food has become mom’s pastime.  Bad idea.  In fact let’s help mom clean out the freezer.

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
NELLY…..RED  VIOLET

Hey you two how about sauces.  They can fancy up a so-so dish!  They can be added to foods that are just tiring to have once again.  They almost make the meal taste different….like fancied up!   Good idea, Nelly!

There you have it. Sauces will be the next selection on the menu for Wednesday the 6th of January.

We are also joining Comedy Plus for our version of Wordless Wednesday.

We’ll tell ya what our sauce will be on Monday, We must decide first. This sauce is going to be easy for folk to make.

Fabulous Friday’s Fun Fill-Ins

Friday and its still snowing.  Everything is white now.  We are tucked away in our beds.  Me, I’m in my Murphy bed and Shoko’s on the basket on mom’s desk.                                                     

Never fear cause today is the day for 15 and Meowing and The Four Legged- Fur-Balls

Let’s get started.  I’ll be doing the first two and Shoko the last 2 sentences.                                                                   

1. I keep MY….. TREATS FAR AWAY FROM THE CANDY MOM GIVES OUT…. but…..CLOSE ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET AT……

2. I don’t need…..NO STINKNG MASK…, but I want…… TO SCARE SHOKO.  So I’ll run past her yelling while she’s sleeping….mol

                                                                                                         

3. I would want ....MY CLAW MARKS…. to be etched onto my tombstone.

4. If I heard something go bump in the night,…..I’D LOOK TO SEE WHAT IT IS FROM MY HIDING PLACE.                                                                       

Fun Friday Fill Ins from Frozenville

You gonna try going out Shoko?  No mousin’ way!  It’s -42C out there.  That’s enough to freeze one in their tracks.  I’m stayin’ inside where it’s warm and comfy.

I think it’s brisk out but so very refreshing. I’ll show you. Dad would you open the sliding glass door?                                                                               

Oh my!!  Look at the heated water, it’s frozen.  Dad hasn’t taken the Christmas lights down yet….tsk tsk. It’s too cold, Shoko’s right.  Dad let me in, let me in quick!

It’s a Fun Filled Friday Fill In day with Ellen of 15 and Meowing giving us the first 2 sentences and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs.  Click on their names and be taken to their blogs instantly.

1. I could not…..BE HAPPY….. without….. MY GINGERSNAP.  ONE DAY HE WILL BE MY BOYFRIEND.  HIS REAL NAME IS COOPERMURPHY BUT TO ME HE WILL ALWAYS BE MY FELLOW CAT SCOUT, GINGERSNAP. 

 

This is GingerSnap and I out in Cat Scouts….we wanted to talk quietly. mol

2. A simple pleasure I enjoy is…..A RELAXING BRUSH BEFORE STORYTIME.

3. If I could change one thing about myself, …..IT WOULD BE MY LEFT ANKLE.  I WOULD ERASE THE PAIN AND HAVE A BRAND NEW ANKLE WITHOUT SURGERY.

I’LL SHOW A PICTURE WHEN THE ANKLE IS IN BETTER SHAPE!

4. PEACE AND QUIET…..is hard to find these days.  WHEN THE WEATHER WARMS UP THESE FURRY FAMILY MEMBERS WON’T BE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO INSIDE AND LEAVE ME ALONE.                                                                                       
I HAVE TO BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR A FLYING FLAME COLOURED CAT AND BUDD’S EYES STARING AT ME. I DON’T UNDERSTAND MALES. IS HE UNDRESSING ME WITH HIS EYES? REALLY BUDD, I LOOK TERRIBLE WITHOUT MY FUR!

Sunday Selfies with Tyebe In January

Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie

I wanna play with the fishies in the sink.  Where did mom put those dang fishies.                                                                           

Found them!  Like putting them on a shelf is going to keep me away…yeah, right!

Look at these fishies go. I wonder if fish in ponds flash red for humans when they’re ready to play, “Catch me if you can?”                                                                                 

I’m ready to pose for my selfie.

I’m holding the reusable grocery bags down. They just fall on the floor if I don’t lay on them.

 

It’s time for a Meezerism from Shoko.  Where are you Shoko?                                                        “Have you ever noticed that snow is the deepest where you want to walk?”

 

 

 

Awwwww Monday with Shoko and Tyebe

It was a very cool night. The temperature got down to -2C.(28.4F).   The garden flowers are gone for another year.  There was ice on the outdoor water bowl.  Dad had a feeling the temperature would dip below freezing so he brought the cherry tomatoes up to the house and they didn’t freeze!                                                       

Bet you can’t see me…mol

Selfie Sunday with Budd

A fine Sunday here with bright sunshine and warming temperatures.  Shoko and Tyebe are outside playing so I said I’ll gladly pose and click my selfie.  The Cat On My Head is hosting the selfies so slide on over and either take your selfie or congratulate your friends on their efforts.
We are renewing the kitchen with a few renos so the cat food is in bins, no kitty can go pawing through the goodies.  I am guarding these goodies so if a hole develops in the side of the bin. I can rescue a few morsals.                                                           
Have a super day and watch out for those featherless birds…..also called mouses….they are in abundance right now.
What does a cat like to eat on a hot day?
A mice cream cone. mol

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!

Tyebe Tuesday

Egads, you make a mess, mom.  It’s so messy here, I can’t get on the counter.                                                                 

Hey Budd, there’s no room up here to look for treats. We’s outta luck.

You mean this mess means it’s Christmas. We should have fun if the rest of the house looks as rugged.

So what are you baking for us? What do ya mean…..nothing?

There you have it……we get nothing.  Shoko never liked my cooking and turned her nose up.  I can picture you doing the same.  The only one that would eat it is Budd.  That’s only cause he’d eat anything. mol
