Thankful Thursday with mom

Hi friends, Shoko and Tyebe’s mom here for Thankful Thursday through Brian’s Home.                                                                

 

I am very thankful this week for one thing the girls did together.  Now, Shoko has been growling and hissing so much at all of us that I figured she was going to pack her wee bags and move out.  We couldn’t seem to do anything to her liking.  The wet food was not her favourite so she wouldn’t eat.  She has started going tinkles on the lawn.  Tyebe just made matters worse by giving Shoko a big bear hug whenever Tyebe saw her.   The other night I decided to leave the bedroom door open and just maybe all would be quiet when the lights went out.  Not quite quiet but shortly the growling became less and I fell off to sleep.  When I awoke at 2am, I turned the bedside light on and Tyebe was lying next to me.  What was next to Tyebe?  I rubbed my eyes…TWICE.  I couldn’t believe it!  There was Shoko, out like a light right beside her.  I quickly got my camera from the livingroom and snapped the picture.                                                                     

This sure made my heart relax. I won’t go so far as to say they are great friends and there’s no more hissing and growling. There is still growling and hissing. All on Shoko’s part. However, they have their moments of actual playing and just being with each other.

I am one thankful cat mom for the happiness I feel. Shoko is starting to accept Tyebe and progress will be in baby steps.

Flippin’, Fryday, Friendly Fill-Ins From 2 Funky Foxes

 

Today is the day for the Fill-Ins, hosted by Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.  I will present the first two statements and Kali Kit the other two.

1. Keep calm and …..SMILE.  THEY’LL NEVER KNOW YOU ENJOYED  THEIR FISH BEFORE THEM.                                              .
2. WINTER….. disappoints me.  IT IS SO COLD THAT I HAVE TO STAY INSIDE UNTIL THE AFTERNOON WHEN THE SUN MAY COME OUT.  NO MORE RUNNING OUT IN THE MORNING TO GO TINKLES.  THE GROUND IS FROZEN AND THE TEMPERATURE FREEZES ONE’S TINKLE. BRRR…                                                YOU SEE WE ARE WALKING OUTSIDE AIMLESSLY TO KEEP THE COLD AWAY.

3. OREGANO….. is my ….DOWNFALL.  I LOVE OREGANO AND TRY MOM’S IN THE GARDEN EVERY YEAR. Yes, oregano is a perennial.

4. In retrospect, ….I WAS A GOOD KITTY MOST OF MY LIFE SO I CAN LET MY fURS DOWN OCCASIONALLY AND BE A LITTLE BIT HELTER SKELTER.

 
                                                 

 

MOL…be good this weekend my friends and we’ll see you on the flip-flop.                                                          

Selfie Sunday with…Shoko

Today has been a very mild day….at least for us.  Mom, Kali and I headed out for some much needed fresh air.  Mom was surprised Kali was so happy to get out but I guess she was getting as bored as the rest of us with being stuck in day after day.  Kali and I headed straight for the nip.                                                                aakalishokcrdoneEver since mom decided to feed any cats and their monkeys left out on cold nights, the place has been crawling with introoders.  We wanted to make sure the nip was fine.  The nip was bald as a billy goat!  Think that was winter’s chill, not the introoders though.  Kali ran over and left her scent on what was left of the nip so these crazy dudes know it’s our nip.

I thought she was going tinkles on the nip and was mewing at her to stop.  She said her waterworks were chilled and she couldn’t do anything even if she wanted. to.                                                                     aakalicrzm
After our visit outside where we exerted our dominance we decided it was time for a snooze.
kalipillowtalkKali felt a bit too fresh and curled inside the tent mom makes between the pillows.

 

I on the other paw, was feeling just right, so I retired to my bed beside the toilet paper.                                                                       aashoktpsmAww…a comfy corner of the bathroom.

Today is also Sunday Selfie with The Cat On My Head.  Go visit them….read their news of what’s happening in their house and say hiya to your anipals that are posing.

May the snow fall be short but the sunny days linger.                                              sistersinarmswinter

Typical Tuesday

Today has been a laid back, do whatever you want day….at least for Kali and I. I started the day with a surprise wash from Kali. I wasn’t sure if she wanted some form of payment so I was a little suspicious of her motives.

After Kali gave me a bath. I was off to the ensuite to examine the shower. Mom has to be kept up to date on the shower condition….does it need cleaning or what? She is a tub freak and dad is the shower freak…sorry dad, you’re not really a freak. Just a term us kitties use for anyone that likes water.

This is lookin' kinda tacky mom....could use a few squirts of a cleaner and some paw power.

Nothing says I can’t have fun with my silvervine catnip bird while looking for grime.

Kali and I grabbed a small bowl of Fancy Feast Beef for breakfast. I cried out, “Where’s the beef?” in my best dramatic voice. Mom is getting used to it and just walked away. Kali headed into the living room to sit on our tree condo and practice taking selfies for the blog hop on Sunday.

I headed off to the hall for some practicing on my balancing bar.

I wonder if I could scale this wall and be the first SpiderCat?

The rest of the afternoon was much the same with in and out, in and out.

Mom is off to bed and we’re following to get a good comfy spot. We start a new book tonight.

Bring on the new book, mom

Bring on the new book, mom

The new book is titled, “More Cats in the Belfry.” In this house the author, Doreen Tovey, has two Siamese cats. This sounded good to us so we wanted to hear how other families like us live. It is an uproariously funny book and an excellent read before turning the lights out for the night.
