Selfie Sunday with Kali

Hello friends.  It is my turn for Selfie Sunday.  Shoko can go look for some nip in the snow….a fruitless task if I ever heard of one.                                                                             Our good friends, The Blues brothers and sisters are hosting the selfies in the blog The Cat On My Head.  Bet there’s a story behind that blog title. MOL  You want to cheer them on?  Just click on the hosting blog name and you’ll see all our buddies posing for you.

I wanted to look like I was reading the paper and someone startled me.  Do I look like someone scared the cwap outta me?

                                                                                       Have a great Sunday one and all.

Strolling down the Street One Day

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.                                                                           aaassistedThis 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.                                                                     aacrsmliftAfter 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.

There you have it, Shoko modelling her kerchief.  Does she look like a proud dudette or what?                                                                      jack_o_lantern_canadiancats

Read Me A Story

Piglove and Gentlestitches are hosting this reading of a story.  We intend to do a book review also.                                                        Reading                                                                          We read many cat books because of our story time every night, some are good and some are alright.  There are very few books out there that we do not like at least some part of the story.  However, books written from the cat’s perspective have a special place in our hearts.  The following book employs this technique with great success.                                                                                 aaakaThe book we are reviewing is called, “Black Cat and The Accidental Angel” written by Elaine Faber.   This book is the third and as yet the final book in the series.  From the moment we started reading……we were hooked.   The story begins where the previous story, “Black Cat and The Lethal Lawyer” leaves off.    Thumper and his family are heading home from their visit in Texas.  They are not far from home when suddenly, the SUV is in an accident and the carrier with the cats in it is thrown from the vehicle, landing in an awkward place that is impossible for the family to find.  The adventure begins as Angel and Thumper try to find their way home.   One massive problem exists, Thumper has lost his memory and doesn’t even know who the cat is with him.                                                              accang

These two cats have many adventures while attempting to walk home.  Mom laughed, sniffled and down right cried.  She got that attached to the kitties and their struggles.  The plot twists kept her reading when she normally would quit for the night.  The ending came way too quickly for us.  So in short, I would say if you want a boring book to read so you can fall asleep quickly, don’t get, “Black Cat and the Accidental Angel.”  However, if you want an excellent read with cats that are real to life, DO buy, “Black Cat and the Accidental Angel.”  The only thing left for us to do is get Elaine Faber to write a fourth book in the, “Black Cat” series. MOL

The author forwarded pictures of the cats that were her muses for Thumper and Angel.  I thought you would be as delighted to see them as we were.

These precious kitties live with the author and happily share their lives.

Now, without further adieu mom is going to read part of the first chapter of, “Black Cat and The Accidental Angel” on video.  Please excuse her feet as she was relaxing and laying back.

Mom only read a portion of the first chapter.  To see how the story goes, you’ll just have to get the book.

Hope you’ve enjoyed peeking in our bedroom…we enjoyed the company.  Ya all come back now…..ya hear. MOL                                                                   Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

 

South Meets North

The doorbell rang and I ran and hid……as usual.  There was a brief exchange of words and the door closed.  Whew!  No visitors, just the way I like it.  I came hot pawing it out from the bedroom.  The postman had given mom an envelope.  What is it….c’mon open it!

Hey, its from Bacon’s mom!  Sitting in the envelope looking cool and calm, sat Bashful and his son Chip.  The two pet rocks from Georgia.  Mom was delighted.  Kali and I smelled something else in the envelope.

  These are treats, yippee!  Hope ole cheap skate gives us lots.                                                      There’s a toy that looks like Bacon.  I claim it as mine!  Look at the little monster with arms and legs.  Shoko would just bite through the cotton and eat the legs.  So I claim the monster toy too.  Mom will share the treats between us so I’m ok there.

Meow with you later Kali.  Does everyone know the story of Bashful and Chip?  They have quite the story.  Here is Bashful’s tail :

In 2013, Bashful headed over to Australia for a visit with Fozziemum.  Bashful made a movie called Rockadile Dundee.  His co-star was Bimby.  They fell in love.  Bashful then returned  home.

Bashful returned to Australia in December of last year.  He was having an awesome time with Fozziemum and Fozziepa.  Then one day his life changed.  Bimby showed up at Fozziemum’s doorstep drunk, with Chip in tow.  Bimby was now an alcoholic.  She wanted to go into rehab and turn her life around.  She hated to admit it but she could no longer care for Chip and gave Bashful all parental rights.  Bashful had always wanted a pebble of his own, so was delighted that Chip would return to the Scold, rocktates with him.

Now, Bashful and chip are here in Canada for a wonderful visit.  Any words of wisdom Bashful?  “It’s cold up here.”  There you have it friends.  This seems to be the most outstanding feature of Canada to a rock, a special rock.
