Chilli Chilada, Gardening Cat

Dear furriends,
I want to thank each and efurryone of you for your concatulations and encouraging words concerning my final Gardening Cat examination yesterday.
It worked: I passed Siena's examination and I'm now an official Gardening Cat. I'm so proud, I'm wearing my tail sky high!
It was quite the day and I'm a very happy and sleepy birthday girl today.
I did a last minute check of everything I could. Here I'm using my tail as a ruler to see if the little hedge is trimmed properly.
Siena has high quality standards. She even checked the azaleas if I pinched out the spent blooms. Phew, I'm glad I did!
I was very, very nervous and excited!
I was lucky that she didn't inspect the peony too closely as there are quite some weeds growing at it's base. I concealed them by sitting on them. Very clever, wouldn't you say?
My master piece are the three blooming cat nip plants which I raised from seeds we got from our furriends Cliff and Olivia. It was very hard to refrain from nomming them so they can set seeds and we can have even more catnip plants!My sisfur was very pleased with my effort and I passed with flying colours! Yay!!!
It was a great day and I got loads of presents which I will show eventually in the next posts. Unfortunately we will be posting irregularly because of mom's illegal, eh, "hard" working hours (13 hours per day).
Love and purrs your way,
Chilli Chilada, official Gardening Cat

Woooooo! Siena is one tough teacher but I'm glad you passed!

I love that you sat on the weeds to hide them.

Happy birthday, Chilli! The garden looks beautiful - and congratulations on becoming a gardening cat.

P.S. we're sending many purrs to your mom - 13 hours a day is WAY too long in our opinion.

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

13 Hours a day?! That's SLAVERY!!!!

Congratulations, little Chilli, on becoming an official Gardening Cat and satisfying such a demanding examiner!

Your Friends,
Tommy, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan

Daisy said...

Congratulations, Chilli! I knew you would pass!

Marlene said...

purrs,

Your gardening is something really to be proud of, great job! Sorry that your mom is under such heavy workload, I hope she'll find some time to spend with you girls...
Purrs and love

Chilli, we think you are a supreme gardening cat - a real natural! We have peonies in our garden, too, and I love to hide under them.

Purrs,
Rocky

Keiko and Luna T. Katt said...

Great job passing! You are a pawsome garden kitteah!

katztales said...

Great news - and you look good in the garden. A 13 hour working day? you'd better purr for her comfort when she finally gets home.

MoMo said...

Yay for passing the exam and a belated Happy Birthday to pretty Chilli.

Gran said that from the back Siena looks so much like me when I was younger, except for the lighter colour coat.

Tuck said...

Congrats Chilli! I knew you could do it! That first picture of you is very pretty...I may have kissed the screen when I saw it....

Cliff and Olivia said...

Congratulations on passing the exam, Chilli!

You're clearly doing a very good job (hiding the weeds was genius). Siena must be proud too. Good to know that your cat nip is blooming.

We're reminding our humans to collect seeds from our cat nip plants - and hopefully dry some leaves too :-)
