…Nerissa Arrives…Sort Of

…the Old Booke Shoppe and Zealandia Mystery Adventure continues… (beginning episodes on Dash Kitten, HERE, and Nerissa’s Life, HERE)…

Previously on Nerissa’s Life
“Suddenly the lights stopped flashing and the room went dark.  He had arrived.  Nissy had arrived at Savvy’s house.  Teleportation was complete.”

I’m sitting here waiting on my pal Nerissa.  He sent me a text that he was coming through my place to pick me up to help him with something.

Nissy sends savvy text

Intriguing…he wouldn’t tell me what it was…he just said the fact that I have “nip phobia” was what he needed right now…him being the “nip addict” and all.

Nerissa is always trying to get me to try different forms of the nip—dried, crushed, fresh leaves, fresh nip flower, freeze dried…always the same…nothin’, nada, zip…I just walk away after one whiff…who needs it I say.

Anywho, I am waiting on Nerissa…wait…what?…Nissy!!! Is that you calling me!!!

WHAT???…What’s wrong??!!…Oh Noes!!

Nissy arrives 2

Whomp, whap, bam, wham…KKAAAAATHUNK!

Nissy Lands

Savvy:  what the kit kat Nissy!! That’s no way to travel…I told you to stop using those egg beaters to create your entry into our space time continuum for teleportation !!  You simply MUST get yourself a proper teleport tunnel!

 (Savvy looks up into the time space opening Nissy dropped out of)…And  SEVILLE!!! STOP WHIPPING YOUR TAIL WITH THAT WHISK!! It takes your focus off turning the egg beater correctly!!

Seville with whisk

Now you messed up Nissy’s  egg beaters…just look at them…they are melting!!!

MOUSES!  What a mess…

Here Nissy, take my paw…come on…get up.

So tell me…what’s up?

Nissy: (reaches into his fanny pak…pulls out a bit of old dried up green something)

Savvy…Dash sent this to me…he found it in an ancient book in an Old  Booke Shoppe.

Savvy: So?

Nissy:  Well, I think it is a variety of THE NIP!! Everyone thought it was extinct…but this sprig was stuck in a page like someone wanted us cats to never forget about it…it was labeled “Necata canipis”…and it grew on the now lost continent of Zealandia!!  We are gonna go there and find it and I bet THIS will be just the NIP for YOU!

Savvy:  HA! You just want to have it yourself Nissy.  Look at you…just carrying that ancient piece in your fanny pak has your eyes all wonky, your nose is running; and look at that drool under your chin…honestly!

Nissy: (wipes chin)…sorry Savvy…you know how it is with me and the Nip…I told you when we were at Blog Paws…ya know…our Plushies talked a lot…thank Ceiling Cat we can channel our Plushies’ thoughts so we know everything they know and vice versa…anywho…I’m glad you know about my…ummm…ahem, koff, koff…you know…”problem” with the nip.

Savvy: I know Nissy, I know…you can’t help yourself with the Nip.  So what now?

Nissy:  We need your 3 way teleport tunnel because, well…ahhh…as you can see; my egg beater teleport is pretty messed up….and truth be known…I need you to be the designated teleport driver…I don’t trust myself this close to this pawerful ancient nip.

(Savvy takes a sniff of the dried up sprig…nose twitching)…hmmm…it does make my nose tingle a bit…but no light headedness…so I think I am fine as designated teleport driver…where to Nissy??

Nissy:  Why New Zealand of course!!  Zealandia is a lost continent under the ocean around New Zealand…but there are some teeny tiny little parts that stick up like islands and I bet that’s where we can find this long lost variety of The Nip growing still.

Savvy:  Ok, but let me text Dash…we need him once we get there to help us drive to a cliff near the ocean…so we can look for Zealandia islands…we gotta be high up to do that.

Here, check out this map…you can see where there may be some islands…

(Savvy leans her head on her paws…looks dreamily away.  Maybe there is a nip for me…finally something to help me loosen up…sigh…shakes her head…gets up to text Dash)

Nissy, do you think someone or some “thing” left that behind just to make some cat like you, ya know, Nip Addict and all, go looking for it?  Maybe they did that just so they can pull you through the space time continuum back to their time…maybe they won’t let you go?!

Nissy: Naw…go on, text Dash to get ready to pull us through the 3rd tunnel on your transport…I know we both have to get through to the middle green section where your controls are…then we should eject with Dash’s help.

Savvy:  OK, but first give me that sprig…(Savvy tucks it into her fanny pak)…I don’t trust you having it so close to you.

Alright…let’s get going…Dash is waiting for us at the third tunnel to pull us through if we need any help…

Stay tuned…to be continued…tomorrow…right here…don’t miss the next exciting episode of the Old Booke Shoppe and Zealandia Mystery Adventure

A purrPrise: My Champion

Finally…runs in office..slams door…whew! Jumps on chair…hits “PUBLISH” with left paw (I’m a lefty in case ya hadn’t noticed!)

Now it’s all together…the whole story can come out.  Mom and I have done a ton of storyboarding on this one…’cuz it kind’a goes back a ways….

…I know this is kind’a long…but it’s gonna be good…trust me…

The question efuury lady cat must ask herself…if and when do I need a CHAMPION to guard my honor?…and ‘cuz of my background, I never thought I would need to ponder(vocab builder) this question.

But, life changes…..

…I used to stare in my Mirror and ask…”what is wrong with me? I think I look OK…I am nice…I keep myself nicely groomed…why doesn’t any huFamily want me…”…

…I would lie in my hidey hole (no one at the shelter ever suspected I had it all tricked out)…and while brushing my fur…wonder…”maybe I don’t have HONOR and that is why no one wants me???…”

…and then this man came along in the shelter, and reached in and petted me, and then his wife did this special rubbing on my ears and head…and, well…you all know the ending…

I WAS TAKEN TO MY FURREVER HOME…and I had HONOR!!!

Then I started to blog my autobiography. Mom helps…and she is the one who put my HONOR at risk…

Remember that June 19 post…My Name Is Not Marilyn???…all those ‘cheesecake shots’ Mom posted!!??

…like this one…????

Well! That is what started me to fret (vocab builder) about my HONOR…’cuz of those cheesecake shots Mom posted…I got lots of comments that made me fear my HONOR needed protection…

Chancy, from Chancy The Gardner,  warned me…”Oh, my! Sweet Savannah you better lock down the place…there’s going to be mancats scratching at your door….”

The boys over at Katnip Lounge commented: “Boom Chicka Wow Wow:…Mommy! Fainty Mancats clean up in Aisle Three!”

Rumpy Dog had to control June Buggie: “Oh my DOG! *covers screen so June Buggie don’t drool on it*…”

Alfie, over at Mollie and Alfie …commented: “You is smokin HOT girl, has your Mum got a pole?? Yep as they say, if you’s got flaunt it, and you certainly have!…Can’t wait to see some more, I wonder if Mum’s got some Ice cubes as well.”

Kozmo, at Cat from hell said: …”Oh! My! Cod!…Nellie hid your post from me yesterday! Savannah-You are one hot Mama! I could go for a girl like you if I did not have my Calico Rose….Kisses…Kozmo”…

After all those comments…one final comment came in which gave me hope…and an IDEA!!

Finally, my doggie pal, my Mr. Big Guy Jetty from Hi, It’s Jet Here, said:

“Listen with the boys getting a look see at those pics, you’re gonna need protection… and I VOLUNTEER!”

I immediately replied:…”Oh Jetty…you are so big and strong…I would totally feel protected if you were my CHAMPION!!! ….digging in box, throwing stuff out…searching…searching…can’t find it…but I will give you my handkerchief and you can be my official CHAMPION!!”

My Big Guy responded right back, fast as lightening…”Hey, Jetty here. I would consider it a great honor to receive your hankie and take on the role of your CHAMPION…”

I sent back my reply as fast as my paws could type…”ok, let me find that hankie and I will ‘award’ it to ya…”

MY CHAMPION IS MY DOGGIE PAL MR. BIG GUY JETTY!!  TAAAAAADAAAAAA!!

Jetty, I promosed you my hanky, and here it is…and I know you will wear it with pride when you are needed…

And Jetty, I had this special badge made for you and I to post on our bloggys so efurryone knows you are my OFFICIAL CHAMPION!!!

That’s my big PurrPrise for efurryone!!!  And MY CHAMPION JETTY is just seeing our badge for the very first time today!!! PURRPRISE JETTY, MY BIG GUY!!

ALERT! Itsy Bitsy Progress…YES Again!

OK,OK,OK,OK…so in my post on April 17, the one about Fitness for Cats…ya remember I had some video and stuff on trying to get my abs in shape.  Well, anyways….one of my fav blogs I follow is Animal Couriers and they made this comment about that post…

“Ha, we saw your lovely tummy! Have you let the peeps touch it yet?”  To which I gave a huge shout out…ARE YOU KIDDING! NO WAY!  TOOOOO PERSONAL!!

Well…drum roll please (boom booom booom)…

yesterday I was totally relaxed and Mom was next to me petting me really nice…and I forgot my fear for a bit…and I let Mom pet my tummy!!!!!  Ooohhhh…I closed my eyes…didn’t twitch my tail…totally relaxed and trusting Mom to give my tummy soft little rubs and strokes.  ummmmmmmm…nice….sigh…

You can sorta see my tummy in this photo…course Mom couldn’t get a picture when I let her pet my tummy ‘cuz I would of left…MOL…but you can see my tummy is pretty and soft…
