Sparks of….Friendship

It’s been a long week friends.  My emotions were pretty raw there for awhile and believe me I let mom and dad know how I felt.  I won’t go into detail but I am starting to settle.

Mom and dad tried to get me out in my stroller today but I didn’t want any part of the stroller while it’s outside.  No way, um um.  Mom ended up taking Monty the stuffed Mountain Goat.                                                          

I waited for them on the front porch.                                                      

Do you know what helped mom and me during this difficult transition? It was all our friends sending us support and hugs. Yep, it sure was…..am I starting to talk like Buddy now? Geez! Any way you helped us out of a dark place. Which brings us to our Sparks for this week. You know Sparks was started by Annie of McGuffy’s Reader to bring a positive thought to the start of our week.

We see the support and understanding given to us as very special.

Mom, I have a reputation to uphold so enough of this mushy stuff.                                                  

 

 

A very short yet heart-felt post to send our deepest

condolences to Sharon, Raz, and Allie over the loss of their

dad and Sharon’s husband.  Even when the death is a

foregone conclusion, the shock knocks us off our feet.

Know you are not alone, there are so many of us that are

sending our support for you three.                                                      

Please, stop by Friends Furever and let them know how

much they are appreciated and are never alone.

Freezin Friendly Fill Ins on Friday

I’m going to do ALL the fill-Ins this week, Kali.  15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader supply the 4 statements every week….different statements I should say.                                                                  Pop in and visit our hosts to see what they have to say.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

 

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is…..TO CHECK MY VEGGIE GARDEN.  IT GIVES ME A THRILL TO SEE WHAT MY FERTILIZING DID FOR THESE CROPS.  JUST TO THINK I GREW THESE OUTSTANDING VEGGIES WITH MY OWN TWO PAWS.                                                                        

 

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is…..TO CHASE ALL THE INTRUDERS OUTTA THE NIP PATCH.  I’M BASICALLY A PACIFIST AT HEART. YA, RIGHT SHOKO!  THESE FRIENDS HAVEN’T BEEN PARTAKING OF THE NIP AND DON’T BELIEVE YOU’RE A PACIFIST.  I’M CUT TO THE QUICK, KALI! SURE YOU ARE, TWINKLE HEAD,….WHAT A DRAMA QUEEN!                                                                    YOU DON’T SEEM TO SCARE COW KITTY AT ALL.

I’LL DO THE LAST TWO SHOKO.  BOSSY RED HEADS!

3. I could really do without …..SHARING!  IT’S HIGHLY OVERRATED.  I GET NO WARM FEELING FROM SHARING MY TOYS WITH COW KITTY.  ACTUALLY I THINK THESE IDEAS COME FROM COMMIES AND IT’S A PLOT TO BREAK OUR WILL.                                                                             

4. I would love to have more …..WELL, WHAT ELSE…..TREATS.

Waiting and Hoping …….Tooth Fairy Where Are You?

Here it is 2am and all is quiet.  Kali is snoring up a storm and so I wait alone for the Tooth Fairy.                                                                 ashokoteeth2I’m getting *yawn* sleepy.

ZZZZZZ……what was that noise?  You see, I have one eye open so I can see everything that happens.                                                                             aashoksleep
I know I heard something. Oh look, the Tooth Fairy’s been by.

ashokstoothfairyfindingsKali look what I got!  I got a toonie, two loonies and two quarters.  So you got two dollars for each tooth and fifty cents for the broken one.  Good hard cash.  I got a feather wand too.  That’ll be a lot of fun.  Just try to catch me feather…MOL.  Focus Shoko.

You got a cheque too.  Oh, oh.  She could be one of those butt(ers)  What???  You know one of those dad’s that don’t pay ail-a-money for their child’s support.  Oh…MOL…you mean deadbeat dads.  Ya,that’s it!!   The Tooth Fairy may not have the mew-lah In the bank to cover the cheque.  Believe me Shoko if you go cash this cheque, I guarantee you, that’s the least of your problems.                                                                   ashoktoofair

Shoko did you get a picture of the Tooth Fairy?  I hope so.  I was wearing my selfie remote and attached the motion activator before I went to sleep.  Looks like I got her.  The camera was on.                                                                            atoothfairy

This is the Tooth Fairy??   Egads!!  She’s not the least bit like I imagined.  It looks more like dad.  MOL  Even dad doesn’t look that crazy.  Mom says that the Tooth Fairy has helpers that step in and help her when she’s really busy. I guess this guy is one of them.  Probably a peeps Tooth Fairy helper.  I’ll bet hardly anybody likes to see him instead of the real Tooth Fairy so be kind Shoko.  OK Kali, I sure can understand why nobody would want to see him late at night. 

You know Kali, databbiesotrouttowne were right.  I got the exact sum they said I would, and not a cent less.  Did I get any treats?  Yes, you did.  You got 3 bags of Island Paradise, our favourite.  Mom put them away while you were busy.

What a night.  I could use some sleep.

Have a super day and may your fairy bring you everything you want.

SHOKO…..BLACK

Have you known any black cats, Kali.  I mean like good friends with a black cat.  I sure have Shoks.  In the old house just after I moved in with mom and dad I wandered across our street and met our neighbour.  His name was Gauge and he was as black as your face Shoko.  We struck up a friendship and I would lie with him under the apple tree on his front lawn.  One day as we were playing around, I laid on my tummy.  I had a fair bit of kitten flab left on my bod and was what one may call, “Chunky.”  I would be horrified if one called me *chunky* to my face.  Anyway as I lay on the lawn Gauge danced around me and rolled me across the lawn.  There was a slight incline on the lawn and pointed in the right direction, I would roll down.  Each day was good for a roll from Gauge till we both grew up and I was a little heavy for him to roll.  Still we would sit on my front porch or under his apple tree.                                                  akitkalHe sounds like a cool dude, Kali.  Is he still living there?   Mom and dad went to visit Gauge’s dad in the hospital a few weeks ago.   Gauge’s dad was losing his battle with cancer.  Gauge’s dad passed two weeks ago.  Mom and dad were upset and wondered what would happen with Gauge.  It turned out that Gauge was provided for in his dad’s will.  Gauge and his dad’s best friend had a special relationship and Gauge has gone to live with him on a farm just outside Prince George.  *sniff*, *sniff*, *wipes a tear from her eye*.  Geez Kali, that is so sad.  Part of it is sad but can you imagine the love that Gauge’s dad had for Gauge, to actually have a legal will drawn up to include Gauge!

Now, that’s true love, Kali.   If everyone could see black cats in the same light as we do, there would be no problem.  Layla’s book on black cats will certainly help their plight.                                                                                  Kali and Shoks
