Happy 9th Birthday to Zoey!

zoey9BD-leopard

The first time I held my precious leopard spotted Zoey it was back in 2008. She was 12 weeks old at the time and I was in the process of bringing her to her new forever home with me. She barely fit in the palm of my hand, she was that tiny, but she screamed so loudly during the car ride you would have thought she was a full-grown wild leopard. Today, on her 9th birthday, she’s still that tiny, slim, sleek, and lean cat. She’s also the same force to be reckoned with. Her vocal cords remain loud and clear as I can attest to each and every morning as dawn breaks.

I love you my sweet girl. And so does everyone else in the house. Especially daughter Mia who loves to spend time near you, despite that you sometimes wish she’d be a little less cuddly with you. I hope you have a great day filled with lots of love, sunbeams, snacks, cat naps, and more!

Cat Camp NYC Catch Up!

nyc2015

When I visited New York City in November of 2015, the weather was beautiful and I was able to enjoy some site-seeing. That was not the case for this trip – even though it was nearly spring, the weather was brutally cold.

Let’s see, I’ve been back from Cat Camp NYC for a couple weeks and what did I learn? I learned that my once strong, Upstate New York blood that could handle cold weather in a heartbeat, has thinned so completely that I’m barely functional in freezing temperatures. I was so excited to be going to the city – I had visions of site-seeing, eating in trendy vegetarian restaurants with my cat-loving friends, and browsing in some of the quirky and quaint shops of the city. You know, like Carrie Bradshaw of Sex in the City, only with cats, and no sex. Instead, I got bitter weather that was so debilitating I was nearly incapable of walking! Read more

There’s not much more fun than photo editing my beautiful ginger cat, Jazmine, for an Irish pose!

So it’s St. Patrick’s Day…or in my world, St. Catrick’s Day. As with many holidays that have become Americanized, it’s strayed a bit from its original roots and evolved more into a general day for anyone, whether you’re Irish or not, to join team green and have some fun. I’m not much into the big parties, parades, drinking, kissing the Blarney Stone, and searching for shamrocks, but I do have a bit of Irish blood in me and I do enjoy dressing in green, being one of my favorite colors. I also love photo editing stuff around my cats to celebrate the day. Read more
