It’s Christmas…NO….it’s Boxing Day…NO……It’s the day after..Pt. 2


Kali I thought this holiday season was supposed to be quiet and relaxing.  What happened?  There is way more happening than usual Shoko.  I don’t like it, myself.  I’m starting to get bags under my eyes from lack of sleep and these surprise visitors are giving me worry wrinkles.                                                                           aaoakst1Go away, I’m not ready to receive visitors…Shoo…shoo…  You called me Kali?   Well, NO,  This guy looks familiar, where have we seen him before?  This dude looks like Oak St. from last year.  Remember mom and dad took him to the SPCA and he was adopted after he was fixed.  That’s right.  What’s he doing back here?  I think maybe he likes it here.  Maybe he’s just hungry.  Mom filled up the food….there you go he had some kibble and left. Whew, now I can comb sparkles through my locks of fur.  What for? I want to achieve the best look for the Cat Scouts New Year Dance.  Buddy, from Timmy’s Tomcat Commentary blog and I are going to sneak in.  Einey and I can help you guys when you get there.  Sounds good sis.

Einstein and Buddy’s dad sent mom some Cadbury Choclates…wow.  Mom’s smacking her lips already.  Thank you so much Pete.  Angel Easy and Phenny’s parents sent some catnip pillows for us and dudes are they ever soft and cuddly.  Mom got a cat angel.  Is it ever cute.  It has a very sweet face.  Bacon from Piglove sent mom and dad t-shirts.  They loved them.  Mom’s t-shirt says ,”Cat Mom.”  Dad’s says,” I hate dogs!”  No it doesn’t Shoko, it has the Grinch on it….they know dad too well….MOL Kali got a funny looking guy with dangly legs….she sleeps with it. I got a soft pig in a hula skirt.  Dude she is fantabulous!  I can almost see her swaying.                                                                             aabacongifts

We thank everyone so very much for thinking of us.  The Christmas Cards we received on-line and right to our door were so appreciated…we have them on the complete, Kali, sniffer, work, mantle on the coffee table and our big table in the hall.  All we can say is WOW…you dudes and dudettes are awesome.  Thank you so very much.  You have made our Christmas complete!

Boxing Day came and Kali and I had to have a box so we went out and examined the Dude’s Hotel on the deck.  Cow Kitty was sunning himself but Kali didn’t see him.  She calls herself a cat?  Her sniffer doesn’t kitty, ice, dad, butt, bum, work!                                                                           aakssm

aackkcrzmSome kitty ate most of the kibble and the water is lower.  I dub this method of assisting the ferals and forgotten kitties a success.

It was a cold day as you can see by the ice around the water bowl.  We went charging inside when mom opened the door.  Hey, look Shoko dad has made us a box with entry ways.  Cool dad, thanks!

aabumstuckk1Oh how embarrassing my butt is stuck! Can I butter your muffin, Kali? MOL. mew, mew, Rolling On Floor Mewing My Whiskers Off!  What’s that poem mom says to us about, “Three Old Ladies Stuck In The Lavatory.”  *The third one’s name was Mrs  O’Kal-lee, she got stuck and couldn’t get her bum free.*  Dad will make the hole bigger to accommodate your more voluptuous regions. hehe

Do you know it’s also Artsy Fartsy Caturday today with Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty.  She’s holding the display of us kitties at her place so drop by and see the other models.                                                                       caturdayartbannerMom decided to use the Flow Art Effect from Lunapic so the picture of us looks painted.                                                                           aaflowarteffectksSHOKO…..BLACK

It’s Spring….Quick, Catch It!

They say Spring has sprung.  Well Spring is struggling to stay out around here,  She keeps hiding and letting a dress of white occupy the backyard.  We don’t even want to see another picture of this dress….months and months we watched nature give us the Winter whites.                                                         snow1zmcrYuck…no more mom!  Bring on the sunshine and flowers.  Come on let’s exam the garden for signs of life.                                                        dadigHey, dad’s digging over my veggie garden.  The ground is no longer frozen.  High five, Kali!!

tulipssmThe tulips are peeking out.  Bad news mom….the weeds seem to be  posing for the picture.  Guess we’ll be out weeding before long.                                                  lilacsm2nd year buds are on the transplanted lilac bush.  Mom’s never seen the bald headed, tattooed man she got it from again.  Someone told mom it takes a good three years for transplanted lilacs to have flowers.  We shall see.

nip1zmLook at the nip buds!!  Dad said he had to re-net the nip….there were layers of cat hair on it.  Dang visitors…..we wouldn’t do that!!

Here is our last sign of Spring in the backyard.                                                               collarzmIt’s my Hawaiian collar that I lost in December!  Now that the snow’s gone, dad found it.  The red suits me…my favourite collar.  I thought it was gone for good.

blackitOh cwap!  Kali’s found a new kitten in the neighbourhood.  She seems to like him.   Another sign of Spring…new kittens in the area.  This guy looks to be 5 months though.  Get away from him Kali….we don’t need anymore visitors!!  Our nip is getting too hairy.                                             shokzmcrA further sign of spring are the puddles but no ice.

There you have it friends, the signs of spring around our place and our first walk of the year in the Lane.

May your week have more nip than medicine.                                               Kali and Shoks


South Meets North

The doorbell rang and I ran and hid……as usual.  There was a brief exchange of words and the door closed.  Whew!  No visitors, just the way I like it.  I came hot pawing it out from the bedroom.  The postman had given mom an envelope.  What is it….c’mon open it!

Hey, its from Bacon’s mom!  Sitting in the envelope looking cool and calm, sat Bashful and his son Chip.  The two pet rocks from Georgia.  Mom was delighted.  Kali and I smelled something else in the envelope.

  These are treats, yippee!  Hope ole cheap skate gives us lots.                                                      There’s a toy that looks like Bacon.  I claim it as mine!  Look at the little monster with arms and legs.  Shoko would just bite through the cotton and eat the legs.  So I claim the monster toy too.  Mom will share the treats between us so I’m ok there.

Meow with you later Kali.  Does everyone know the story of Bashful and Chip?  They have quite the story.  Here is Bashful’s tail :

In 2013, Bashful headed over to Australia for a visit with Fozziemum.  Bashful made a movie called Rockadile Dundee.  His co-star was Bimby.  They fell in love.  Bashful then returned  home.

Bashful returned to Australia in December of last year.  He was having an awesome time with Fozziemum and Fozziepa.  Then one day his life changed.  Bimby showed up at Fozziemum’s doorstep drunk, with Chip in tow.  Bimby was now an alcoholic.  She wanted to go into rehab and turn her life around.  She hated to admit it but she could no longer care for Chip and gave Bashful all parental rights.  Bashful had always wanted a pebble of his own, so was delighted that Chip would return to the Scold, rocktates with him.

Now, Bashful and chip are here in Canada for a wonderful visit.  Any words of wisdom Bashful?  “It’s cold up here.”  There you have it friends.  This seems to be the most outstanding feature of Canada to a rock, a special rock.


Weekend Wonders Never Cease

Here it is another Friday.  We had some visitors this week.  Mostly peeps so we were not amused.  Uncle Nels came up from Vancouver Island.  This is dad’s brother….they are nothing alike either.  They don’t look alike or act alike.  Go figure.  I look more like Shoko than dad looks like Uncle Nels.  Uncle Nels is a fantastic in/out/in/out/in/out player.  He never seems to tire.  So both Kali and I play this game whenever we see him.

The other peep visiting was Nels friend Rick.  Mom has known Rick for quite awhile now.  Rick’s thing is he’s into Superman.  Everything Superman.  Superman sheets, PJ’s, clocks and all.  Anything you can think of for Superman Rick has it or is thinking about having it.  He’s kinda cool.  I was expecting him to take off and start flying above my garden, then I could meow, “Look it’s a bird, it’s plane, no, it’s Superman!”

Here is the real Superman.                                                          Kali took a shine to Superman Rick because he’s so soft spoken.  She said there was no difference between the real superman and Superman Rick.  I told her she needed glasses….there is a difference big sis.  She was stubborn and said,” NO difference!.”  Time to drop this subject.

We also had a visit from the cow kitty next door.  Dudes and dudettes, this guy is growing like a weed.  His body is bigger but his head is still small.  He looks a little odd!  Hope his head grows pretty soon and catches up with his body.                                                                                                                                         Isn’t he a charmer, even if he has a small head.
