Sparks From Mother Nature

 

Where are you Shoko?  SILENCE  Guess, she’s gone outside.

There you are rolling in the flower garden.  Well, ya, the dirt is nice and warm.  You really ought to try it mom.                                                  
Thanks, Shoks but this weeding has to be done. Aww…you really do miss out on the finer things in life cause you have to do silly cwap. The weeds just come back again.

Today is Annie from McGuffy’s Reader’s positive message day. Let’s get some pictures of Mother Nature’s gifts to us, Shoko. I don’t think so, mom. I’m pretty happy here. You won’t screw up the pictures to badly without me so show me your stuff.

Well, here are some tulips that have reached for the sun and are ready to bloom.                                                   

Two weeks ago I took this picture of the tree in the Lane.
Today this is the tree.

Our positive message for Sparks is:

Think positive and have a great week.

I laughed so hard at this meme….it reminded me so much of Kali. Please enjoy.

Friday’s Funky Fill-Ins

Time for the funky fill-ins from us.  The co-hosts of Friday Fun Fill-Ins, Annie from McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen from 15 and Meowing give us the sentences and we fill in the missing words.                                                        

I will take the first two sentences and Kali will attack the last two sentences.

1. I have never been able to….CLIMB A TREE…..I KNOW THAT EVERYONE THINKS IT’S MY CHOICE BUT CLIMBING A TREE SCARES THE CWAP OUTTA  ME.  I LOVE THIS PICTURE….lOOKING AT THE TREES IS AWESOME……..THE IDEA OF CLIMBING THEM GIVES ME THE SHIVERS.                                                        

2. I wish I could still …..SQUEEZE THROUGH THE RAILS ON THE DECK WITHOUT THE RAILS TOUCHING ME.  THEN I COULD TAKE A SHORTCUT TO THE NIP.                                                

Take it away sisteh ghostie.

3.  SNUGGLING ON MY PURPLE FURRY ON MOM’S BED….. is my ideal winter night.                                                           4. TREATS…..and…..CARRYING OUT MY BEAUTY TREATMENTS MAKE ME HAPPY.                                                    

Have a fun weekend friends.

Christmas At Our House

 

We had a very happy Christmas.  Mom gave us turkey for brekky and for supper and we sucked it down like the turk was Greenies.  Then it was off to the tree standing in the living room.  Dad was playing with the train…whoops, sorry dad.  Dad was fixing the tracks cause they needed lubricating to keep the train on them.  I didn’t tell him I’ve been batting at the train and then running like crazy up to the condo with Mistle Poop at the door. mew, mew, mew.                                            I just like to say poop! mol

Santa brought me a remote control snake.   This dude is a real horror.  The snake, not Santa!  Scared the crap outta me….looks so real.

 I just had to poke this guy…MOL                                                     

Kali was as cool as ever but this snake startled her too.                                                    

Kept Kali awake for some time.

We have never, ever seen a live snake up here.

Next was Kali’s gift from Santa. She got what she asked for.

Here she is sniffing her Pet Hut to see if Cow Kitty’s been in it and lost a few spots.                                                  

I examined the hut on the inside for any deadbeats hanging around and Kali examined the outside for drafts. The hut passed the test.

 

I gave mom a mousie wand with feathers.  I figured she was worth it.                                                     

I could choose no feathers or for a bit more get the feathers. The feathers are just right for mom….don’tcha think? I didn’t have quite enough for the feathered wand so dad helped…thanks, dad.

Have a great Thursday friends.

Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty

Let’s move that table Kali so there’s room to dance and play, *herd of elephants*.  Crap it’s heavy Shoko!  I know but I couldn’t ask mom and dad to move it before they left. I guess not.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                                       What kinda food should we put out Shoko?  That’s no biggie Kali….we’ll put out what we like for the cats, the others may be a bit more difficult but we’ll figure it out.                                                                           Chickens, roasted with powdered nip and silvervine  stuffing.  Geez databbiesotrouttowne are not going to be pleased with a berd around.  Well, it’s not alive or pecking at them and many of our pals love chicky.  We can’t please everyone Kali, I wish we could but we’re all different

We have a dish called Sashimi.  Sashimi is used to cleanse your palette  between different courses.                                                                        Salmon fresh from the Pacific.  We had some Sockeye Salmon filets shipped in from Prince Rupert to tempt the taste buds of the fishy fanatics like YOU.  hehe

We will grill the salmon to perfection  right in front of your eyes.  For those more daring we have salmon sushi.                                                                    Wow Shoko where did you get this stuff?  It’s delicious but we didn’t have any money.  Well, the chicky was in the freezer and the salmon was sent down to us from our friends in Rupert.  We don’t have any friends in Rupert Shoko. Do you hafta be so picky Kali?  Did you do something dishonest for it Shoks?  No, I got the salmon from the freezer too.  So, you’re just a big wind bag Shoko!  Nope,  these things are perfectWhere do you think mom and dad got the salmon?  Prince Rupert?  Exactly.

We have some Green Goblin drinks for all.  The main ingredient is nip and this nip is fermented…woohoo!                                                                              

Now when our pals bring their lucky pot dishes, we’ll have a tasty set up.  Why the name lucky pot?  The police will be alerted to our activities.  Let them be!  We’re lucky to have a pot of anything from our friends.  That’s what I mean.

Gracie lent us her favourite condo playground to play and have herd of elephant games.  It’s a massive tree.

I “borrowed” 2 diffusers to play. “Name That Stink.”                                                          What do our friends win if they guess the right stink, Shoko?  Ummm…I never thought of that Kali.  What toys do you have Kali?  Toys that don’t have teeth marks in them like mine? I got a wind up mouse but I slobber on my toys.  It’s rude to give a bitten or slobbered on toy.  I know!!  Remember those straws that mom found when she went out for coffee with her friend.  You mean the ones from Starbucks and Tim Horton’s?  Exactly!  There must be 70 of them there.  Mom goes out for coffee a lot.  Those can be take home prizes.                                                      Is Nellie coming Shoko?  She figures she can sneak away for a few hours but will be home when mom goes to visit.  Nellie wouldn’t say a word about our pawty to mom, I know it.  She is the Queen of The Cat From Hell so she won’t say ,”nip.”  She can get on her cell phone and let us know when mom’s coming home.  Then we can have everything shiny and new looking.

We’re ready for a pawty.                                                         May your light shine through
the haze of nipadoodle.                                                                                       

 

Christmas Selfies

Here it is Christmas Eve and we are playing around near the tree.  We’re waiting for Santa,  We gotta do something while we’re waiting.  Cow Kitty dropped by and decided he’d investigate the tree.                                                                                  aackcrsm
You see that pile that looks like a dead body in the hall…well it is……OK, OK….a dead body is much more interesting than what it is. MOL  Use your imagination friends….what do you think we have in our hall?

Here is a much nicer picture of Cow Kitty as he posed for his picture.                                                                    aackzmsmIf, Cow Kitty behaved like a gentleman, like now, I wouldn’t have as many issues with him.

Kali got herself quite comfy under the tree for a snooze near mom’s wagon.  Dad didn’t want to try and wrap it.                                                                        aakalisleepzmcr

It is Selfie Sunday at The Cat on my Head and Kali is starring as our model.  Drop by and visit the other models.

catonheadbdI am busying myself with my intellectualized toy.  They must think I’m stupid….I am a meezer….I know things.  Like I know how to stick my paw in a cup and come up with treats.  Geesh!                                                                          aashoklook

What I want to know is where is the little person that keeps putting treats in them.  I’ve looked and looked but can’t find him.  Perhaps he lives under the cups. ” Anybody in there….come on out and chat,  I’d rather have Catnip Greenies in here.” Hmmm…what to do?

Thank you to all our friends for the wonderful Christmas wishes.  Here are just some of the cards.  We were overwhelmed by such kind and thoughtful friends.

aacczmNotice the pitiful plant…..this is my toy when I get bored.  It never seems to grow yet I’ve played smacky paw many times with it.

Merry Christmas my friends…..we love your visits.  Have a wonderful Day.

May Santa bring you all the Christmas joy your heart can hold!

Rolling and Strolling In Our Neighbourhood

Mom and I went for a good walk today.  Well, she walked, I rode.    The things I saw my friends.  They’d curl Kali’s fur and she’d be a LaPerm cat….MOL…I’m so funny! MOL!  *sigh*   What?  OK,  I’ll get on with the story, mom.  It was unbelievable!   Pure craziness.   Peeps were all over….making lotsa noise too.  Cars were whizzing by and I was scared at first.   I crept to the back of the basket…near mom.   There were so many strange noises.  Dogs were barking, usually I couldn’t see them but I saw three of the big boogers.   Kali would have saucer eyes!. MOL                                                      ash1wksm

Two of the big dogs I saw were Bulldogs, mom said. I wouldn’t want them living near me. They are super loud.  I pulled back in the basket but had my eyes on them till they were outta sight.

We went by one house that had a lovely tree getting new growth on it and MOL, these peeps had tied plastic apples on the tree. It was cool. I guess it’s an apple tree or a plastic apple tree. MOL

How artsy….a fine creation from peeps that have seen their fill of wintry landscapes.

Mom said we both had done very well and we should head home.                                                                  ashwksm

 

Mom was talking with our neighbour on our way home and he realized I was sitting in the stroller, so he asked about me and mom explained we went for a roll and stroll. He has two cats and was enthralled with the stroller. He said the pet stroller was, “Cutting edge” and I had to agree with him, at least for Prince George it was very *cutting edge*. I yelled at mom to hurry up and we were on the move again.

Kali met us at the door and was delighted to see us, mewing up a storm.  I told her all about the sights we saw and she licked my head. Aww….sis…I had a good time. I’m sure tired though.
