Great balls of weeds! It’s cold as your heart at treat time, Shoko. Mom and dad won’t let me out and I’ve whined and cried, I even tried screaming in my mother tongue. Nothing works. Geez, Tyebe it’s so cold outside you’d be a popsicle in minutes. Of course I wouldn’t. I’m tough! You look tough, Tyebe. You can’t keep your eyes open. Mom is going to let you out. Bye Tyebe. Mom wasn’t foolin’ it’s dang cold out here. Let me in!! Open the door and get outta the way. It’s -39C with the wind chill. I’m stayin in now and giving thanks at Brian’s Home. Simply click on the blog name and you’ll be in their abode. Tell him what you’re thankful for. I am delighted we have such a lovely warm house and many treats.
Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday. We have much to be thankful for these days. Pounce on Brian’s Thankful Thursday badge and click on the site given. We at the Canadian Cats send the Power of the Paw and healing purrs to Brians dad.
We are getting our favourite meals from dad. He gives us snacks on a schedule so every 1pm and 9pm we chow down with special goodies.
The weather is warm and lazy. So we can just sleep anywhere and be happy, as evidenced by Tyebe.
The kitchen is about half finished so we can fish around for treats.
Mom is getting about a little but not out of the house yet. She is still getting IV Therapy of antibiotics at home so the pain is still in the bone. She is in pretty good spirits considering.
I like to visit with mom and tell her about the younguns and how horrible they can be.
If you don’t mind this is a private conversation just between mom and me!
We are participating in Awww Monday through Comedy Plus.
It is a fine Monday here, very sunny and cold enough to freeze the balloons off a floating giraffe. Speaking of floating giraffes, have you spotted any today?
What are you doing, Shoko? This is Aww…Monday not, *Free your Animal Spirit Day*. All this cold is getting through to you. Your brain has turned to mush. mol…haha Get it…mushy brain from freezing and thawin’.
We’re also participating in Sparks. Ann from McGuffy’s Reader started Sparks many moons ago and though she is taking a break from blogging, we liked the idea of a positive thought to start off the week.
Imagine the problems the floating giraffes have…they have to turn completely around and not fall on their heads.
You can see Budd’s problem and mom’s foot but many people have problems you can’t see but these problems are very real. A welcoming word can make all the difference.
1. I deserve a gold star for…..TOLERATING TYEBE’S SHENANIGANS……today. THERE IS NO PICTURE OF TYEBE WITH HER FACE IN THE POTATO SALAD CHOWING DOWN. MOM WAS TOO EMBARRASSED TO MENTION IT BUT I’M NOT. THEN TYEBE GOT UP AND EXAMINED THE GERBER DAISY…..MOM’S PRIDE AND JOY. SHE DUG IN THE DIRT AND BIT THE STEM.
THIS IS THE GERBER DAISY THIS EVENING. IT’S NOT A HAPPY GREEN ONE.
2. Right now, I am loving…..THE HEAT….. WE DON’T HAVE MANY DAYS THAT ARE SUPER WARM BUT WE HAVE EM NOW. THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN ROLLING IN THE WARM DIRT. AWWW..
Tyebe take it away as only you can wee sis.
3. The best advice I’ve ever been given is….IF ME’S DON’T WANT TO EAT THEN JUMP ON SHOKO SO SHE CAN’T EAT EITHER……I’S FORGET WHO TOLD ME’S THIS. IT COULD’VE BEEN MY INNER VOICE. MOL *HIC*4. If I had to choose a new first name, it would be …..THE WHITE TORNADO AS I’S REALLY MOVE ME’S BOOTY.
Hey, this Saturday is so warm! The weatherman says +6C….toasty.
My spidey senses tell me there is another pair of paws wandering around the house. Could it be, yes it’s gotta be the white tornado!
It’s not me Shoks…I’m grabbing a few winks before you get in my face again. I don’t get in your face! I strategically place myself in a position where you can’t miss seeing me. Like I said…in my face. Whatever!
Wonder what this racket could be. It seems to be coming from the bedroom. As any good guard cat, I must uncover this mystery.
Oh no, we had forgotten bout Elfin John! Go away and leave me alone. You bugged me til Crisp Mouse last year. I’m taking a nap in my pillow tent.
No, no….I meant ALONE! I don’t want to sleep with you.
Geez, you don’t have to bow to me…I would never hurt you little Elfin. You seem like one of the good Christmas elves.
I’m flyin! hehe, I’m free.
I caught a fish for Shoko. She’ll be so impressed. For me? Thanks, Elfin J.
How bout if you do the Sunday Selfie with me, Elfin John? You like that idea. First, we must thank The Cat On My Head for holding this blog hop for so long. Furries….please drop by and visit us in our slot on the blog hop. Simply click on the blog hop name and *poof* you’re there.
*Click* Ya, you got us Elfin J but its kinda obvious you took the picture….next time look as if you are doing nothing.
Today is Friday Fill-Ins by Ellen from 15 and Meowing blog and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader blog. 1. I challenge everyone to…..REMEMBER HOW COLD THEY WERE IN THE WINTER….. this week. Then when it rains or you need a windbreaker to go outside, you’ll realize just how warm you really are. 2. I regret disposing of …..MY SANTA CLAUS DOLL. Actually mom put it away a year and a half ago and she has never found it.
3. I have a difficult time admitting …..I AM A TAD FULL OF MYSELF.
4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be……FLYING. Then Shoko could jump on my back and we could go visit our friends in Blogville. No planning just jump on my back and way we go.
No pictures of me flying Shoko down to Atlanta to visit with Bacon as I can’t fly. But I can dream about it. MOL
Hey, look, look Nellie….a moose! Me’s not seen a moose befores not even in Edmonton.. He’s a bigs guy.
Mes going to rides a moose, girls. Let’s go! This big guy says his name is Marvin and mes can ride on his back. Yipeee!
Thank yous so much for the ride, Marvin. Yous are the nicest moosie mes ever met. Heys, Shoko what’s yous looking ats? I got an idea to get back at Cow Kitty…..again. First you and Kali must make a big snowball and I’ll build a contraption to deal with it.
That should be big enough Nellie. I think Shoko wants to throw it at Cow Kitty but she’s not strong enough for this mammoth snowball,
Ok, I got it made as best I can. Nellie you must stand right there and Kali and I’ll move the snowball over here. MOL When I see Cow Kitty, I’ll yell and you jump off the CATapult. Cow Kitty will get a snowball to remember.
Leap off Nellie! Look at that snowball fly. MOL
Well, heavenly days, these gals mean business!
I’m going home while I still can. These gals are a fearsome trio.
Let’s get inside, looks like we’ve done all the damage we can outside for today.
It’s the Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie today so let’s the three of us pose for the selfie. You can pop in and say hi to our friends posing for their selfie. Hey, I’m a real *Cat From Hell.* My eyes are glowing red…hehe.
It sure has been wonderful having you here Nellie…we both have loved it.
Mom wants to give you your medicine and wants you to have a nice warm nap, Nellie. We’ll come snuggle cause we’re all cold. I wish you didn’t have to go home tomorrow Nellie. Mes too Shoko but mommy worries about mes so it is for the bestest that I gos home. Maybe mes can come back in the spring when its warm and yous planting your vegetable garden Shoko. We would have a fine time in the dirt Nellie. It’s so light I can bat it all over the place.
Let’s sleep…I’m tired my meezer sistehs.
May you have a friend that insists you don’t snore but purr while sleeping.
C’mon Kali, let’s blow this joint. Why? It’s nice and cozy in here. We need the fresh air blowing in our furs. The wind is terrible. I want to be warm. Ok, so it’s cold. How cold is it, Shoko? It’s so cold the snowman has rosy cheeks!
Do you remember the time mom was out shovelling off the deck and then came in to have a hot bath?
Boy, do I ever. MOL The hot water on her cold butt was not relaxing….she said it was so painful and she was fussing about. MOL. She learned to get herself a little wet with warm water before leaping into a hot tub. Experience is a great teacher.
You’re too young to remember mom with the old Taurus but she had trouble plugging the car in so dad got her a light that would turn on when the car was plugged in. You mean sorta like a plug-in for idiots? MOL…exactly.
Ohhh, what about the time Cow Kitty’s dad left his truck on the street and the snow plough came along and blocked him in. The snow was deep that year. It was so funny watching him dig his car out,,,he used words we can’t say…..at least when mom’s looking. MOL
C’mon sis let’s get some air….ok, lead on Shoko.
I’m going into a nice warm heat register. It’s too cold for me. Leave me some room on that warm heat register….I’ll just *sniff*, *sniff* this patch of dirt. Make room for moi….coming through. Much better….I feel like a princess again instead of a pioneer braving the elements. Not that again, Kali. Go to sleep.
What’s worse than snowing cats and dogs?
