When we where at Alamo Drafthouse they showed this clip. The Crocidiles make me laugh.

“No way,” the cats exclaimed as Genevieve flashed the tickets. “How could someone just drop these on the sidewalk?” “Who knows,” Genevieve said. “However, all I can say is finder’s keepers and losers weepers!” The cats laughed at Genevieve’s scratchy singing voice.
“Is something dying in here?” asked someone in the shop.
“Who knows,” asked another voice.
“Hold on. Wait a minute. I know those voices. Is that you Roo and Artemis?” Genevieve asked.
The guests exclaimed, “Why yes it is and who might we be talking to?”
Genevieve replied, “It’s your old friend Genevieve.”
The guests called out, “Really, where are you?”
Genevieve replied, “By the front desk.”
“Genevieve, you have got to introduce us to your friends,” the slightly taller one said.
Genevieve embarrassedly replied, “Whoops, I almost forgot.”
Two little figures emerged from in the darkness. They were bobbing their heads up and down. No wait, they were hopping up and down! Slowly, they fully emerged and the two cats realized there was no need to be scared because these two creatures were only 2 inches Genevieve introduced them – “This is Shipley and this is Gustav. Also, this one is Artemis and the other one is Roo.”
“Roo, Artemis, very nice to meet you.” Shipley and Gustav replied simultaneously.
Had a person witnessed this conversation all they would hear was croak, rabbit meow and bark!
Artemis and Roo soon set-up camp around the heater for it soon began to snow.
“How did you happen to be at Madame Trousseau’s Artemis? Last time I saw you were in a cage at the London Zoo.” Genevieve commented while eating a can of tuna fish she found in a great white thing that was as cold as Antarctica (it was the fridge!).
“You know, frogs are related to tuna. I would appreciate if you didn’t eat my great aunt twice removed,” Artemis politely told Genevieve.
However, the other frog was about to slide down a sculpture of a dragon with the other two cats trying to crawl into the gaping mouth of an alligator.
“They look like they are having so much fun. Should we join them?” Artemis asked.
“You can, I am going to take a walk.” Genevieve left and the only noise heard was the twinkling sound of bells as she left to go back to the library. Genevieve looked around the London Library for the last time. Tomorrow they would be on board ‘The Chunnel’ heading towards Paris. One slight soundless tear fell down her cheek as she took her time weaving through books. When she got to the lone computer, she logged in and checked their seats on the train. “Three of the finest seats in town,” a voice said behind her. She relaxed it was only Éclair, the librarian’s Persian cat. “I guess this shall be our final meeting,” Éclair said quietly. Genevieve told her longtime friend, “goodbye,” were the final words said to each other for Genevieve was out the door before she could start crying. Genevieve went to sleep at Madame Trousseaus for the final time.
The three cats looked around Madame Trousseaus for the last time. Gustav said with a sigh, “today is the day that we finally leave London.” Genevieve tried to lighten them up by saying, “but, it gets us one more place to seeing them all.” However, she too was a little nervous about the plan. “What if something goes wrong, what if , what if, what if……” What ifs were going through their heads. However, Genevieve stayed strong and pushed the cats until they came to the station where the Chunnel lived. Genevieve thought of one teensy weensy problem. Are they going to let three animals that don’t have passports cross the border?
Genevieve told the others - “Guys, I think we may have a major problem. Are they going to let two animals that haven’t had a bath in days plus a dog that is in worse condition on to a highly regarded train? I don’t think so,”
Shipley and Gustav pondered this while Genevieve tapped her foot impatiently.
“Shipley,” Genevieve demanded, “you have all the ideas…. Well, what are they? Oh wait, you must have left them at Madame Trousseaus!” Genevieve’s voice was dripping with sarcasm.
Gustav was left out and he stayed out but was wondering why Genevieve was so cranky all of the sudden. After all, she used to be so kind and now…… Well, now she was either arguing or had a glassy look in her eyes.
“I have confession to make guys. I am not Genevieve, my name is Saks and I am a cat!”

(Later that night)
The two cats rested as Geneve took first watch. She waited until she could hear the soft snores of Gustav and Shipley and she strolled outside. Stealthily she made her way down the road. When she stopped she looked up. She saw the library. Geneve had always felt comfartable here, surrounded by so much knowledge. Calmly waiting for her on the shelfs. She nimbly hopped up the fire escape and into a open window at the top. Once inside she found her makeshift parachute and jumped off of the railing. As air filled the parachute she slowly made her descent. When she finaly plopped onto the beanbag she started her journey,weaving and winding through the shelves almost made her feel like she was at home. That was before her family deserted her. That thought made her realize how much she wanted to get to america. Getting out of London would be the hardest, after that it would all be easy. Geneve thought of a idea, she logged on to the computer and did a google search for a online ticket stand and bought two tickets to Paris on the chunnel. After that he turned the computer off and she walked out the door.

After one quick run through of the shop, Shipley was a little late but everyone was thankful. He had found a wonderful jacket with the initials “LMV.” “This would make an excellent blanket,” Genevieve commented and that is exactly what they did. They carefully used their teeth and cut three medium sized holes through it. When they were satisfied with their work, they spread the blankets across the ground and were fast asleep before their heads hit the pillow! Soon the sun was rising and the cats awoke. ‘How about some fun?” Genevieve asked. She knew there was only one answer to those cats. That one answer was “YES!”

Chapter 6 A change in everyone
The next day was when training began. They ran across the mansions old corridors while wearing the saddle packs which Genvieve secretly filled with stones. Genève told them that they would have to train for a while before they where ready and that they also needed to stay here for a while to make sure no comes looking for them. A whole month of training and cutting down meal portions went by before they decided to leave. At that time did Genève decide that the two cats would be able to carry supplies and run fast if they ever needed to. The three pets separated and looked around the house for anything that might help them. When they got back, they pulled together what they found. They found things that where supposed hold horse food for the horses, scraps of a blue quilt and some empty little cans. Genève had the idea that they could open those and pack food in them. With all that they could bring packed and on their backs the two cats and 1 dog set out making their way down the highway. They where extremely cautious as they made their way down the roads of London. Carefully trying to use the roads that no one used and slowly made there was to down town London.

Chapter Five: A five star flea hotel
Shipley and Gustav sat uncomfortably on the withered sofa. Genève looked bad from far away but now that they were up close they realized it was far worse then they expected. She had fleas bouncing of her like it was the fourth of July and her once thoroughly combed chocolate hair was now jet black and hadn't seen a brush in ages. They where barely able to suppress a shudder when Genève abruptly said " What can I do for you two cats" Shipley looked at Gustav at the same times Gustav looked at Shipley. " We have decided to run away" Gustav managed to stutter. "Why, you have everything two cats could want. What is so bad about your life." Genève said with surprising venom. Again the whole looking at each other at the same time. however this time Shipley spoke up it’s a long story..... " Does it look like have appointment book filled to the brim (it now lays empty and nothing is in it). As Shipley and Gustav explained their story the hours of days passed and just as the sun set the two cats ended there story as "and that is why we are here" Genève laid back in the over sized and over stuffed armchair and pondered what she had been told. Hmmmm.... From what you have told me the old lady will probably come looking for you so we should stay on a low profile. Giving us some time to prepare for the long journey ahead. "Come" she said and as nimble as a cat she jumped of the arm chair and onto the floor. Shipley and Gustav followed . " I don’t know if you remember the old toy horses that Rebecca had two the size of you two and one the size of me." " Yes" both of the cats cried in unison. " Her mother made her leave them and all of their accessories behind" " So what are we going to do with horse toys" Shipley asked? Genève simply replied" We are going to need them." " What for" this time however it was Gustav spoke up. This time Genève gave a more complex answer because she wanted the questions to be over with." You see last Christmas Rebbecca got a adventure kit for her ponies which I must admit came extremely well stocked. Saddle packs the whole enchilada. So I figure we are gonna have a long adventure a head of us so we better come prepared. Also I think we better start practicing running in the yard. There for if we have to make a run for it we will be fit enough to do it. One other think we are gonna have to do is slowly cut down how much food we eat so it won't be a dramatic change when we start. "You still haven't answered our question. Will you join us." Geneve had been avoiding the question her self. She was silent for a moment and then whispered "yes"

In a land not far from here and in a time not so long ago there lived two cats. Gustav and Shipley. These two cat where alike and different in many ways. First and the most obvious I might add they where both cats. Second they where quite spoiled as where most pets of downtown London. One of there differences however was that while Shipley was laid back and quite lazy, Gustav was active cat always finding a way to pursue his dreams. However there was one dream he had not been given a opportunity to pursue quite yet in his nine lives. When Gustav and Shipley both laid down their heads for those sweet cat naps the dreams they had where quite similar. Dreams of the Greek temples built for Athena and Persephone and the famous leaning tower of Pisa. They both dreamed of seeing the World.
Chapter One: The Beginning
There was many changes going on in the houses of Gustav and Shipley. Every one was packing. All the rooms became scarce of any items they could but in a wide assortment of suitcases all different shapes and sizes. That is all except the rooms of Shipley and Gustav. All of there stuff was untouched. The children looked at them for a while with such sad faces that they soon tried not to look at them at all because they would overflow with tears. Then came the day when the suitcases where packed. Still none of the two cats things had been touched. As the car was loaded they picked up the two cats and put them hastily in the back seat. As the car drove away the cats realized that this would be the last time they would ever see their stunning home again.
Chapter Two: Stranded with a Old Lady
As the car slowed the revolting smell of dry cat food enveloped the two cats noses . The kind that is packed by the pound is the smell that smothered the two cats. Temporarily the cats didn't think as the mother of their family handed the two cats to an old lady. This didn't even strike them as odd because everyone should get a chance to hold such stunning cats. Or at least they viewed it like that. However when they started to realize what was happening it was too late. The car took off from the parking lot of the apartment complex to fast to stop even if the driver had wanted to. As the old lady looked at her watch and exclaimed " Oh my little dears you are probably starving by now." As she said that Shipley's and Gustav's stomach started rumbling. "Yum Yum" the both exclaimed in a language only animals can understand and to humans it is either meow bark moo etc. Quite exited as to the thought of food momentarily they forgot the terrible so they also forgot to think about what it was coming from.
Chapter Three: I'm Supposed to Eat that...Thing
As the old lady set them down they ran toward four bowls placed on the floor. Two where filled with water at which they happily slurped away but when there thirst was quenched they found that for them was dry cat food that looked at least three months if not years old. The two cats decided to skip dinner. They looked all around the house and the only beds they could find was the old lady's bed. When the two cats finely realized that they had to sleep on the couch they settled in to the scratchy material that made them squirm. Unable to sleep the two cats discussed ideas on how to make lemonade out of these lemons but they found out with such big lemons and no opposable thumbs it was pretty much impossible. However they did form a plan. One they would regret at first but learned to be thankful that at that age they did not think before they acted. They decided to rum away.
Chapter Four: What Happened to you
While Gustav thought about their predicament he wondered where they would go. Who would feed them? All of these questions swarmed at him and pestered so he couldn't sleep. We're not very strong so we will need protection. Who where the strongest people he knew. Butch, he wasn't friend, he was the neighborhood bully. Fifi, they had got into a argument last week. Then who else……..? Genève was perfect for the job. She was loyal and trustworthy. Her coat was a chocolate color and was extremely tall even for being a lab. Another one of traits that might come in handy is that she was incredibly strong so she could pick both cats up and place them on her backs and then run. The next morning at dawn both of the sleepless cats set out to Genève's house. What they saw almost shocked them as much as what they didn't see. There was no more maids bustling around the corridors of Genève's owners mansion and the once well groomed Genève looked scrawny but strong compared to her former
Self who was plump but weak. As Shipley and Gustav approached her they heard Genève whimper. Being a dog she had even better smell then cats and both cats smelled like old cat food. Despite the awful smell of the two cats Genève let them in.

brrrrr.............. After that we had planned to go to Phil's but they closed at six and instead we had to go to a pizza place called Athena's Pizza or something like that. However if you want really good food you need to go to Barclay's. It is located at the Sheraton Suites. After that take a stroll in Prince's Island and then watch a free movie (you get it at the Sheraton in July) and the drift off to sleep while it is still daylight. Pure heaven Pure Heaven................ Anyway Happy Canada Day

Welcome to the blog all about the adventures of Adi, Amber, and Me. Adi the beagle is a spoiled (or loved I should say) dog. Amber is almost exactly the same as Adi. They are spoiled (loved), picky, and their names both start with the same letter, A. However, there is one difference. Adi is a dog and Amber is a cat.
As for me , i am not a cat nor a dog or any other animal. Well actually a human is a animal but you get what i mean. I enjoy reading and like to comment on books i have read. I like karate and my cat and dog. In my blog i am going to write stories about my pets or even animals in general. Tell a joke or two or maybe even write about a vacation. Who knows? Whatever comes to me at that particular moment! :)
