Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

 
::Meowwww::
 
It's been way too long my furriends!  I have missed you.  Truth is...I have missed my garden.  Mom and dad took off on us, abandoning us to a kitty sitter and I have had to settle for time in the house vs. time in the garden.
 
But...being an Internet savvy kitty, you know I keep up on my gardening news.  I know you could imagine my horror when I read a recent local news story:
 
 
One of the lines in the story particularly caught my attention:
"In some neighborhoods there's coyotes, some have skunks – here, it's just sous-chefs and all the things that come with that".

 
So now...in addition to being on alert for neighbor kitties, possums, raccoons, skunks...and all the usual riff raff that cruises through my garden (leaving my herbs alone most all of the time...except the nip), I have to watch out for local sous chefs climbing my fence?
 
 
Even though my herb garden is a bit of a mess...I think it might be tempting.   But of course I'm wondering about "sous chefs and all the things that come with that".  Hmmmm...what comes with that?  Gourmet kitty food, roasted goodies?   purrrrr
 
I know all that comes with raccoons is dirty water dishes...

 
Hey all you sous chefs out there, I hear that nasturtiums are tasty.  Wanna trade for some homemade food prepared just for me?

I could WISH to find a sous chef in my garden...

Sous chefs?! That's pretty exotic! I'm surprised we don't get any of those in our fancy L.A. neighborhood!

My mom said she will trade some of her crocky pot porky meaty stuff (who cares what it's called, it was NOM-O-LICIOUS) for those tasty flowers we have nothing left since the snow...

WE think you had better make sure that Grete Woofie is always on guard duty when you are out in the garden, Jonesie!

Will the sous chefs do some weeding while they are there? Because if they will, we can send our address right over.

Sheesh, your work is never done, Jonesie.

Happy Halloween.

We're sure that you should be able to get a spray for Sous Chefs somewhere.

Jonesie we were surprised by how much you looked like Hannah today - your fur is just as thick and floofy as hers is!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Yikes, that's a lot of visitors to have to deal with, Jonesie. We're not sure what a sous chef is, but maybe it involves TREATS. We can dream, right? :)

We've never seen a sous-chef climb our fence...probably because Mom deads everything.

I think the sous-chef could exchange the herbs for some good, homemade yummy kitty food, that's for sure!

We'll happily make you a nice dinner if you care to come over for a visit.

Some kitties have critter cams. Maybe you could get one to capture footage of a sous chef rummaging around your garden looking for herbs.

What iffen you put a cloth around yer herbs with poison ivy painted on it?

harringtonspetfood said...

Wow I assume they would at least be easy to spot!!

Terri said...

The solution to his problem seems obvious to me: Mow the weeds.

If they're sneaking over the fence, kitties, I don't think they'll leave yummy food :(

Sweet Purrfections said...

We've missed you. How nice your garden looks.

Our neighbourhood has rockies.
