A Sunday Selfie with Tyeebe

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
MOM…..RED

Tyeebe get outta my face!   See me….wooohooo *thunders down the hall*                                                                          

Cwap!!  How long does this stupid behaviour go on, Mom?  A few more months, Shoko.  Months??  I was never this bad.  Tyeebe scratches and bites like all the time.  I know, but so did you No, that’s hard to believe.  You see my gardening gloves?  Ya.  I used to wear those while watching TV or sitting anywhere near you.  You drew blood every time you were on my lap.              

Me??    It’s all part of growing up, Shoko.  So be patient with Tyeebe, she’ll outgrow it.                                                                          Don’t even think about biting my tail, Tyeebe.  I got your number. 

Today is The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie.  You can handle it Tyeebe.  OK, I’s can do this, no problem…..this thing is a remote, right?  Yep.                                                          

Sorry, I’s was distracted.

                                                                                  Seems I’s still distracted. This is hard!

                                                                  I’s got it!!  Oops, forgot the selfie.  I’s seem to be very forgit-itful. mol *hick*                                                                         There I’s looks like an angel. mol *hick*

Go to The Cat on My Head’s blog and look at all the furries posing for you.  Stop by and say hi to mes.  I’s love to chatters.                                                             

                                                                                  

Hangin’ In Da Hood

We are chillaxin’ around the backyard today.  Several new cats have moved into the neighbourhood along with new neighbours for mom and dad.  The good news is the Woofies that barked like idiots on a stick whenever Kali and I walked down the Lane, moved away.                                                                ablack catkaKali greeted the black cat that lives in the house behind us.  There is a young black cat that lives, we think, in the same house.  The young’un’ is about 5 or 6 months and altogether too delighted to see us.  We need our personal space and this young’un’ hasn’t heard of boundaries yet.                                                                  ajunoThis lovely creature is our new next door neighbour, Juno.  She sits and watches  Kali and I on the deck.  She tends to be a tad rude staring at us but I guess she’s not used to such happy and pretty dudettes living next door,

ajunodone Juno did pop round and say hi to us while her parents were having a BBQ with mom and dad.

Of course Cow Kitty is still here and I play with him a bit more.  Cow kitty chases me and I can be seen as a seal colored blur headed toward the nip and from Cow Kitty.  I used to run to the sliding glass door with a puffy tail…that’s when he used to scare me, not anymore.                                                                    ackdomeEvery morning Cow Kitty has a play fight with the pea netting.  We know he’s playing and not stuck because he stops playing and has a tinkle, then goes back to fighting with the netting.

Oh No, Say it isn’t So….Not the Furs!

Hang onto your furs Shoks this smacky paw is going to rock…your..your…  What’s the matter Kali, you’re staring at me in my private place at the base of my tail?  That’s rude!

shokkast

I’m sorry Shoks but it looks like you’re turning grey at the base of your tail.  Nome?  Really??  You’re not blowing nip up my nose, are ya Kali?  No, of course not!  You are going grey at the base of your tail.  Look for yourself Shoks?

                                               shoktail I can’t see any grey Kali.  I’ll ask mom…she’ll tell me the truth.  You better clean the mess you made on the bed first.  You’ve brought half your toys onto the bed.  Mom’ll be ticked.  You’re right Kali.  A quick paw swish and we can get these toys on the floor and under the bed. MOL

Mom. am I going grey at the base of my tail.  Stick your tail up here Shoks.

shtaOh my, Kali’s right, you do have some grey hair but it’s like salt and pepper coloured.  NO!!!  Say it isn’t so, mom.  Einstein won’t like me anymore cause I’m going grey and he’s such a young mancat.  I’m only seven and Kali’s 13 and she doesn’t have any grey furs!  It’s not fair mom!!!   Have you really looked at my furs Shoko?  Maybe I have grey hairs and you never noticed.  I’ll check your fur and let you know if you have any grey ones Kali.

Is Kali  turning grey and how will Shoko tell Einstein she’s getting old?  Will mom find the toys under the bed or step on the toys that Shoko’s smacky paw missed?  Find out how Shoko and Kali’s world turns next post.

A Walk Through The Garden In July

This is a lovely summer’s day.  The temperature is not sweating us out of the house.  The rains have come and gone.  This means no more restrictions on watering with sprinklers.

Come let’s walk through the backyard and view the plants. The first plants we come across are the herbs.  Mom has dried lots of them and is looking to make herbed vinegar and oil.  I told her she doesn’t have the time but she insisted in that way peeps can.

DSCN3642You see the tall herb right in the middle of the barrel….well, that is tarragon and mom is going to put it in wine vinegar.  I wonder if the wine vinegar will taste yucky after she finishes with it.

We are headed to the veggie garden next.  I have fertilized and watered everyday.  Also I have mixed the soil so that bugs don’t have a chance to set up housekeeping.

You will notice in the first row there is cauliflower, 3 of them to be exact.  There are a couple of beets and a few carrots.  I got to aerating the soil and couldn’t help myself and did a witches dance.  The results are only 2 beets remain in that row and there are very few carrots this year.  However, mom got all carried away with the beets and chard in the second row….making up for my boo boo in the first row.  The 3rd. row is all corn and doing very well from all that hot weather we had.  The two last rows are beans and peas.  Notice the sunflowers mom grew from seed.

Come over here my friend and see part of the flower garden.

Right in the middle of the picture are the lavender coloured phlox.  The aroma from the phlox is divine, so mom says….I think it stinks myself.  Beside the phlox, is the new rose mom got as a remembrance of her mom.  Behind the phlox and rose and well protected are 2 huge tomato plants.  Moving to the left, there is the pink hydrangea.  Mom added a chemical compound to the soil to turn the soil more acidy, thereby giving us blue flowers instead of pink.  It didn’t work mom.  There is another big tomato plant behind the hydrangea.  The tomatoes have lots of fruit but they’re not red yet.

Let’s step into the greenhouse for a few moments and see how the crops are doing in there.                                                     You are looking at the 3  pepper plants we got from small transplants.  All 3 have peppers on them.  The one pepper to the right is an Hungarian Sweet Pepper Plant.   Mom thought because of its shape the peppers would be hot and she figures she’s hot enough and doesn’t need those to help her.  Aw mom I didn’t mean to embarrass you!  MOL   You can see the leeks just in front of the peppers and the celery is to the far left.  To the far right and out of sight is the Spaghetti Squash.  Mom has pollinated the squash but no big ones are on the way yet.

Let’s mosey (mousey) back to the deck.

Look who stopped by for a visit, the cow kitten neighbour from next door. He sure is growing.

Ack!  Don’t run at me like that!  Now I need a piddle pad from Dezi of Dezi World’s powder room.  Geesh.  This is not how to make friends!

What’s happening out her Shoko?  Look for yourself Kali, its our neighbour again.                                                         What’s he doing Shoko?  I don’t know….maybe, no it can’t be….biting his tail?  Really?

MOL, Look at his reaction after biting his tail Kali.  MOL.  What a funny guy.
