Well, it seems like this is the year of the apple. Lawrence, the nice fellow from my favourite hang out….the junky vehicle house, has given mom and dad 10 pounds of apples from his two trees. Apparently the small ones are very sweet and crunchy.
Dad got busy and made an apple pie and apple tarts from scratch.
Looks beautiful. Mom says the tarts are delicious. They have yet to start on the pie.
Not to be out done mom decided to make a chicken pie. Nobody gave her a stewing fowl but she found one basking in the freezer. No pictures of the fowl either. But there is a picture of the pie.
This is the pie without the top crust. All pastry was NOT homemade but rather taken from a box. It’s easy to tell mom tried but failed miserably to make this pie look like it was professionally made. Apparently it tastes good. It looks atrocious but at least the flavour is there.
What were we doing while the bake off was going on?
Sorry, the picture is fuzzy but Kali was moving and mom doesn’t have an action camera but you get the idea.
I had a marvelous day yesterday at Cat Scouts. Sammy of the Worldwide Wildcat Troop put on a Greenhouse warming party and we all brought our nip plants. Well, I had a riot chasing some mice out back with a few of my pals. Needless to say I overindulged in the nip and mom informed me I sounded weird so we should go home.
Once home I did what every cat that was “nipped” out would do…….I slept.
Today I was chompin’ at the bit to get out in the sunshine. So dad let me out. That was early this morning. Mom called and called me but I never showed up and I usually come to her by the second calling. By 2pm, mom was fussin’ and fumin’ as to where I was…..so dad, wanting to put mom’s mind at rest, MOL….came lookin’ for me. I was found fast asleep under one of the neighbour’s 87,000 old cars. Dad took me home and told mom where he found me. Mom kept me inside but I was tired and didn’t want to go gallivanting about. I crawled up to my condo and continued my pleasant dream.
Kali had her own objectives for the day. Rising at 10am, she went tripping sleepily out to the deck.
Kali hasn’t been feeling so great lately and so mom decided to give her some Barley Cat…this aids with digestion. Kali came back in for her beef Fancy Feast. Mom thought she was being real sneaky by putting the Barley Cat into the Fancy Feast. Kali looked at the Fancy Feast, looked at mom, shook her front paws and walked away to lay down in her basket. Not the reaction mom wanted at all. Mom waited for an hour and then took a teaspoon of food to Kali in her basket. Kali proceeded to gobble the food down as if she hadn’t been fed for days. Mom tried this again with the same results. Mom got the bowl of food and gave it to her and Kali got up and finished the bowl of food.
Now, mom is just shaking her head wondering about us. Why am I found sound asleep under an old car when I have so many comfy places to sleep right here? What is Kali trying to prove by declining her food and then eating the same food when it is spoon fed to her? Every day different.
