Come Fly With Me, Sammy

You know whose coming for a visit Shoko?  Who, Mrs. Claus is running away from home?  It’s Sammy of One Spoiled Cat.  He is flying around the world and will be stopping here for a visit.  When?  He’s here Shoko.                                                         comeflywithmeSammy!!  You look refreshed.  The cold air rushing by your ears must sound like an ocean but feeling it on your furry face would be awesome.  Sammy welcome to our house, have some dried nip from the garden.  Mom mixed it with silvervine.  It’s a trip without a balloon, MOL                                                              aaanipshoksmYour operating the Hot Air Balloon so need all your faculties about you.   OK….just let me get a sniff and we’ll look about Prince George.

ballooncatsLook….Even Cow Kitty came to see you off,  You are an icon around here Sammy.  We talk of you often and always yell, “SAMMY” before we eat any bacon we get.  Bye Shoko and Sammy, have a great time.  Quit yakking at Sammy and let them take off, Cow Kitty.

Up, up and away we go.                                                                      aamooseThere’s a moose for you.  It’s a female that probably lives among the trees going up to UNBC.  UNBC is the University of Northern British Columbia.  maybe we’ll fly over it.                                                               013496f3fc194d86b11049b86913be35This is the Fraser River, where mom would walk Kali when they lived in the other house.  They walked along the beach beside the river.  Mom saw 2 beavers swimming about a foot and a half from Kali.  Kali was busy getting a drink and didn’t notice them.  A typical Kali move.  This park is Ft. George Park.

I know it’s really cold tonight Sammy.  The weatherman said -30C.  A wee bit nippy ole pal.                                                                        unbc-campus-aeriel-534This is UNBC, Sammy.  Our pride and joy.  Do you see the yellow trees.  These are pines that were killed when the north was inundated with Pine Beetles a few years back.  What a loss.

See down there and to your left is downtown Prince George.  I was born on the streets of Prince George.  I think that’s why loud peeps don’t turn my crank now.                                                                            pgsm You can see in the background the pulp mills.  Prince George was known for its pulp mills at one time.  The mills had many workers and was the major industry here.  The town stunk of sulphur which is used in the process.  It was a horrible smell mom said but the townsfolk said it was the, *smell of money.*                                                                   aapg  Isn’t this a beautiful mountain and just on the outskirts of town.

Oh look Sammy it’s the Northern Lights.  When we get away from the downtown area we get to see them but only when the sky is clear.                                                                             northern-lightsSammy, you’re looking rather cold.  Let’s go back home and you can get warmed up before you are off to the next town to visit.                                                            kisssammyWe love ya Sammy and Kali wants to kiss you for just being you.  I’m not the mushy sort like Kali but you mean the world to me Sammy.  I am delighted you came to visit our frozen neck of the woods.

Have a safe trip to your next destination Sammy.  Bye!                                                             comeflywithme                                                                         candle

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kali Chats About Life and the Friendly Fill-Ins

Hi everyone,  I feel so much better today.  I still limp and have a lot of trouble walking but mom and I went to the vets today.  Mom didn’t even try and get me in my carrier but used Shoko’s box carrier where she could just place me in the box and shut the lid.  Mom could carry me just great.  I said nothing on the way to the vets, even though I was really scared.  Dr. V and mom chattered back and forth but Dr. V treated me like a princess so I was a happy girl.  It turns out that I also have arthritis in my hip and the base of my tail. The vet thought the idea of hyaluronic acid (HA) would definitely help my other joints but there was also damage to my elbow joints, she was unsure if HA would help this.  We also decided on using the Medicam in three-day doses a week and start with a dose for 5 days.  She said using it everyday would be pretty hard on my kidneys and I seemed the sensitive sort anyway.  This is true I have several health problems.  At the end of the exam I got blood sucked out of my body.  Oh my, I sound like Shoko.  I’ve been hanging around with her too much.  Then we went home.  First mom asked for some treats for me.  The vet gives them out free.  We snagged some treats and left.  When we got in the car mom undid the top of the box carrier.  I was laying on top of the purple towel like Lady Muckaty Muck.  I didn’t want to move especially with these treats.  When we got home mom gave me the Medicam and we took off for a stroll up the street.  So many things to see!  I met two boxers and a bulldog.  They were very quiet and polite.  It was a good day.                                                              aakalistriollToday is also our Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by Ellen of 15 And Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.                                                                 ellen_cat_badge_2-1-300x300Our Friendly Friday Fill-ins for week 21.

The Stroller Tryouts

Git away from me, mom.  I don’t want to ride in that box on wheels!  Kali doesn’t look very interested either.  What are you doing….throwing Island Paradise into the box?  You can get them Kali.  I have a feeling mom is going to trap one of us in there.

Ok, get out now Kali…run like the wind.  You’re too late…mom’s moving the box.                                                             akzmstrWhoa, Kali is refusing to sit down!  She does not look happy.

aksmAre you ok Kali?  I don’t like this a bit Shoko.  There are nice comfy blankies here but I don’t like the movement.  Let me out!  Mom’s heading for the bed so you can jump off.  Geez if Kali doesn’t like it……I gotta wonder!                                                          ashstrWaiting for it to seem strange …..nothing’s happening.  Kali, this is kinda fun.  I don’t have to walk, I’m just rollin’ along and its comfy.                                                            ashzmcrOh, it looks interesting over this way mom.  C’mom step on the gas…I wanna see what’s happening.                                                     ashcrWell, paint me yellow and call me a cab, I really enjoyed the spin around the inside of the house. No fuss, just a sweet ride with blankies that feel so comfy on my tush.  I must rethink the idea that pet strollers are bad.                                                                              Kali and Shoks
