Gardening Can Be Hazardous To One’s Health

 

I was in the house dining as were mom and dad.  Kali was trying to get up after an especially good dream of Buddy.                                                               

SHOKO…..BLACK
DAD…..BLUE

Dad looked out the window and said, “I think Cow Kitty is  in trouble in the vegetable garden.”  The three of us quickly headed outside to see what was wrong.  As we got closer this is what we saw.

Cow Kitty was terrified and very agitated.  Dad tried to remove his paw but Cow Kitty tried to scratch and bite him so dad told mom to get the scissors and he’d cut Cow Kitty out.                                                                   

     Cow Kitty must have been in some pain also.  Dad cut Cow Kitty’s paw out of the pea netting and off he went.  No limping just happier than hell-o to get out of the trap that had never bit him before.

Mom and dad never thought this pea netting could be  hazardous to any animals but the squares are small and don’t stretch.  Next year will be different as the netting will have big plastic squares so nothing will get caught.

Cow Kitty came and lay under the deck in about half an hour.  He was more relaxed.

Cow Kitty had a collar on…this is new for him.  The collar came off when he struggled with the pea netting.  There was no name on the collar but five bells.  This is a sign of how great a hunter he is.

Due to Cow Kitty’s harrowing experience today we are making him honorary Artsy Fartsy model on Athena Cat Goddess Wise kitty’s blog.                                                                         

Mom used Lunapic and used the Art Watercolour and lessened the effect.  Then she rounded the border.                                                                     Here is our Cow Kitty in all his glory.                                                                     

MOL..Happy Canada Day from us Canucks.

 

Kali’s View of Her World

For those of you that have not noticed my new header and for those of you that thought, “Egads, that’s a dark and dingy picture”.  Well here’s the scoop.  This is a picture of the Ice Castle in Dr. Zhivago.  The superb actor, Omar Shariff passed away two weeks ago and this is our way of honouring him.

 

I’m looking after the post today.  Yes, Shoko let her big sis take charge for a change.  Shoko is busy patrolling around the perimeter of the property….on the fence.  I don’t know what she’ll do if she spots trouble…bravery is not her thing.  She sees herself as this meezer:                                                          Everybody else see’s her this way:

I have been having problems getting on and off the bed.  The worst part of it was jumping onto the floor after a nice snooze.  My elbow and paws have arthritis.  I find the arthritis meds too hard on my stomach and I can’t hold them down.  Mom asked dad if he could make something that could help me out.  Shoko suggested a trampoline to dad.  She said it would be easy on my paws cause the rubber would give.  Mom and dad didn’t have to worry, she would watch me as I got off the bed.  Actually, she said it would be a hoot watching me go up to the ceiling and down again.

Dad didn’t like this idea and thought it was very unsafe.  Dad decided to make stairs for me.  They are so cool!  Just look at these stairs.

Here I am modelling the stairs…I think they look better with me on them.

Oh mom!  This is a horrible picture!  I look all butt and hips.  Please my friends disregard this pic…..I’m not this fat looking.  I know I’ve gained a wee bit but..                                                                      Here I sit on the top stair…dad made it big enough for me to sit and relax or scratch at the carpeting.  I’m not fond of the type of carpeting on the condo….scratch wise that is but I really like the carpet dad put on the stairs.
