It’s November the 4th. and Mimi asked us…”How do I find peace in overwhelming times?” PEACE…a word that instills a relaxed attitude, a sigh of relief and a happy smile throughout the world. Why is this so hard to achieve, then?
Wherever there are people there will be man’s idea of what is right and thusly peaceful. People need to worship, vote and be happy with their own ideas, not to force these ideas on others….we are all different and as such follow what we feel is right…..this is as it should be without shoving our views on someone else and creating turmoil. Whether someone is Communist, Socialist, Democratic or content in a dictatorship…..this is the person’s choice, not ours. Until we let people be, instead of wiping them out because their views are different, we will not gain peace. If, we accept people with their flaws….we ultimately win.
We were so happy with our interview by Miranda of Dash Kitten.Com that we are showing everyone again…et nausium.
Oh Canada! Meet two of our Fave Siamese
Welcome to a terrific Siamese cat blog for this week’s worldwide web interview. We have a Meezer focus, and as mum is a big Siamese fan, we are thrilled to add this interview to our roster of international stars.
Today we welcome two of the cats that give us much pleasure online, Kali and Shoko, Meezers at Large in one of our favourite countries – Canada. Welcome to spokescat Shoko who introduces The Canadian Cats…..
Welcome to Fort Meezer in da Hood. It is a royal treat to communicate with others so far away. Pull up a stool and have a steaming cup of catnip tea fresh from our garden. Um….the catnip that is……not the water. hehe
Where in the world are you?
We, being sister Kali, mom and dad and myself live in the Northern Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada. Kali and I have never left the city of Prince George so we believe mom. Prince George is known for sawmills and pulp mills as we are surrounded by forests for miles and miles. We find this fact boring. We don’t climb trees and don’t eat bark so what’s the big deal? So we need to make our own fun.
Kali the Siamese Cat
What is your favourite part of creating your Siamese cat blog?
Kali and I would agree that our favourite part of posting is the time we spend with mom. We lay on the back of the love seat and look over mom’s shoulder as she types. We feel the input mom receives from us is valuable and sometimes mom gets some excellent pictures of our studious behaviour. We do many activities with mom and one of my favourite is tending the veggie garden. Every day I water, fertilize and dig in the garden, providing the much-needed nutrients these veggies need. Our growing season is short so mom needs all the help she can get. Sorry, I can get a little wordy or become a blabber mouth. We all love the idea of reaching out and talking with friends from all over the world.
What kind of readership have you discovered enjoys your blog?
The Canadian Cats is not a deep blog that deals with diseases of cats or nutritional requirements. We offer a mostly humorous look at two Siamese cats and their dealings with life’s events from their point of view. We would assume most of the visitors to the blog are looking in to see what antics Kali and I have been inflicting on mom. Life can be very serious and discouraging. A laugh can change a depressive mood so the obstacles in our life don’t seem as monumental. If, someone gets a chuckle from our behaviour…..our goal was achieved.
What are the joys and challenges of being a worldwide blogger?
The challenges of worldwide blogging were obvious right away. Mom knew little about a computer and even less about the programs. She had to find out how this here box thingie worked and then learn to take pictures, photo edit and generally familiarize herself with the everyday workings of life in Blogville. The joys were quick in coming. The first post we did and it turned up to be visible to others, was a cause for celebration. Then to find out three peeps actually were interested in what we had to say……well, you could have blown us away. The one thing we didn’t expect was the close-knit community we were joining. We now have friends from Hungary to The Hague. We have become very attached to both the peeps and the pets.
Will you suggest some of your favourite posts for our readers to discover more about you?
I would say to your readers, if you have the time, read them all. See how mom has improved over the years. MOL She did her first post and then was so upset, she never posted again for 3 months.
Wouldn’t you know it. Son of a seacat. Kali was flaked out in her basket with a big smile on her face. I was on my condo chattering at the crows. Kali disappeared and I figured mom was giving Kali a once over like she does every now and then. Mom came back and blabbed at me, picked me up and put me in my little cardboard box. Kali and I were then whipped off to the vets. Well Kali was some upset and let mom know it in no uncertain mews. She was swearing at mom in cat mews. I’ve never heard Kali swear but she did and let me tell you, she came up with some meows that I hadn’t heard before. Actually I don’t know why Kali came to the vets with us. The vet looked Kali over, took her temperature…..Kali then swore at the vet. Then she went back in her carrier. Perhaps she was suppose to keep me company and instead taught me swear words. I on the other paw was subjected to a thorough exam. Mom was chattering away like she was talking to crows and the vet was chattering back. I then got a horrendous jab in my hip and one in my leg. What a sadist! Those drugs were going to kill me,my fur was standing on end. Then this terrible pill that was forced down my throat….no talking or cooing, just shoved in my mouth. I was shocked by such crude behaviour so the pill slid down my throat before I could scream at the vet.
Vet Dr. Sandy Jamieson
Dr. Jamieson wasn’t our pet physician or Kali would have enjoyed seeing him. She has a crush on him but she won’t admit it. Mom forgot the camera and we had to re-post old pictures.
We came home and I told Kali about my fears of passing from this nip haven, she smacked me on the head and told me I had the same shots last year. Oh yea. I forgot. Guess I’m going to be sticking around for awhile.
Athena and Marie are having their artsy, fartsy post today so I am posing in a frame.

Mom and I were hangin’ in the house when mom decided we should grab some fresh night air. OK mom, I’m up for a frolic outside.
Mom and me packed up our selves and sat out on the deck. It was a warm evening…well for us it was warm. Mom was clad in her dressing gown…..the warm one. Cuppatea in hand she sat on our swinging bench. I sat beside her and mom was talkin’ away in that constant hum she reserves for chattering when meowing back is not required. In other words she was in her own little world. Pretty soon along came Cow Kitty/Felix and he was throwing something up in the air and generally having a jolly good time.
Mom said he looked just the way I do when I have a mouse……..
Then mom frantically called dad. He hurried to the back door and mom explained that Cow Kitty/Felix had what looks like a mouse. Dad watched Cow Kitty and agreed. Mom asked him to go take the mouse away from Cow Kitty as he could get sick or catch something. To which dad replied,”Eww, what makes you think I want to take a dirty, bug infested mouse away from Cow Kitty anymore than you do?” To which mom was speechless! This doesn’t happen often so dad was enjoying his victory but I guess it was the look on mom’s face that made dad reconsider and go after Cow Kitty and the mouse. Soon dad came back to the deck laughing and showed mom the mouse. Seems I took my mousie outside for some fresh air and forgot about it.
