What’s up With Cats and Chairs – Can we Talk?

cats-and-chairsIn the indelible words of the late Joan Rivers, “Can we talk?” I ask this because the other day I shared a picture of Kizmet sitting in my office chair after he stole it from me when I got up for a brief second to get a glass of water. I marveled at not only how quickly the act had transpired, but also at how quickly he fell soundly asleep considering I was literally only gone a minute at best. Read more


A Cat’s Exposé – The Day After Zee’s Birthday Celebration…


Here I am with the birthday boy as well as with Kizmet, Rolz, and Mia. I thought the day was pleasant enough and went to bed feeling like I had given Zee a birthday he would remember!

On behalf of Zee, I just wanted to thank all of you for the kind wishes you left for him in celebration of his 9th birthday last Sunday. The day seemed nice enough – I showered him with lots of love and attention to make sure he felt spoiled and pampered and when I went to bed, I was certain he enjoyed his special day.

Apparently I was wrong, because unbeknownst to me, his feline cat-mates had further plans in mind that I was unaware of… I might not have ever even known, but in their altered state they made the mistake of posting their shenanigans on Facebook. Check it out to see for yourself just what REALLY happened on Zee’s birthday in the after-hours, raw and unedited addition!

Happy 9th Birthday to our Virgo Cat, Zee!

by Deb at 4:50 AM • Cats, Family, Zee & Zoey36 Comments

Zee-9-BDWhat!!! Much as I want time to stand still, another year has passed and it is already time again to say Happy Birthday to our sweet Zee, who turns 9 today! Sigh…That’s right – Zee was born on September 7th which makes him a Virgo and he certainly fits the bill for the tendencies of his astrological sign –  a delightfully fussy and fastidious feline who needs routine and order in his life, and as long as he has it, then he is as happy and content as can be.

Regularly Scheduled Wordless Wednesday

No denying it any longer… Summer break is officially over and for the cats, that means back to their regularly scheduled programming…Which, of course, means back to napping pretty much 16 hours a day. So in that vein, today for Wordless Wednesday each of my sweet kitties shares a picture of one of their favorite places to nap!


Since the first moment Jazmine first happened upon the Sunny Seat, it has been a love affair for her ever since…


While it might appear uncomfortable, given that it is a cold and hard surface, Kizmet loves to nap on the top shelf of the kitchen counter…


Pretty Mia gives us an artistic view of herself as she shares her favorite napping spot which happens to be a sweet little ottoman we have in the living room.


Peanut loves to catch some snoozes in the top perch of this cat condo…


While Rolz still misses his buddy, Jackie, he is thrilled to have the guest bedroom back so he can nap in comfort in front of his favorite sun-drenched window.


Zoey is also happy to have the guest room back – she loves to snuggle up in a perfect little ball of fur as she shares the bed with a mountain of pillows and plush toys!


Zee has loved this spot on top of the couch to nap for years and it remains one of his favorite places…

So how about you kitties – do you have a favorite nap spot at your house? Or what about the favorite napping spots at our house – do you have a favorite one of ours?


Caturday Catch Up – The Cats Adapt, Summer Vacation is Over, and Life Moves On…

Well, it’s official… Jackie has gone back to Boston and the house is back to it’s too quiet self. Dan and I already miss her tons and so do the kitties. Their routine was a bit out of whack with her around – doors that we typically keep opened were closed (Jackie’s bedroom where there is a window for squirrel and bird TV) and doors that we typically keep closed (the guest bedroom with carpeting and lots of breakables) were opened for Jackie’s cousin, Katie, who came by for a visit the last week Jackie was with us and who does not like to sleep with her door closed.
