I Surrender to the Cat Nap

Tell me about it…

When I came home from work on Monday, I was already longing for the weekend. By Tuesday, I was ready to crawl into a hole. Don’t get me wrong – everything is okay, it’s just that I’ve had to do an intense amount of data entry lately and my head is literally spinning. It’s truly amazing just how exhausting typing numbers all day long for weeks and months on end can be. To top it off, at night Dan and I have been catching up on watching Game of Thrones (we just finished season 4) and I think I am probably the only person on earth that literally finds Game of Thrones to be one giant sleeping pill.

Zee sure does seem excited! I wonder what he’s talking about!

Best not to be rude… Lets follow him to see what’s going on!

Oh! That’s right! Spring officially started yesterday! That sure is something to meow over! I see Jazmine is celebrating by climbing a tree – so is Kizmet, but he’s hard to find at first glance (click image to enlarge to help see him!)

Yes, finally! After a dreadfully long winter, spring officially started yesterday according to the calendar. Granted, in Florida that doesn’t really mean much of anything, but for all of our friends that live in colder climates, we do hope that things are finally starting to warm up a bit for you. To help celebrate the season, I put together a fun compilation of some pictures of my gang enjoying a supervised outdoor excursion.

Beautiful Mia hiding behind some papyrus where she thinks we can’t see her!

Peanut is taking in all the wonderful sights and smells that the outdoors has to offer!

rolz

Hmmm…. Rolz lets us know that it looks like the pool needs to be cleaned…

zoey

And Zoey is telling us the fountain needs water…

Well, thanks a lot Rolz and Zoey. I thought this was just going to be a light and carefree post highlighting some spring images, but I guess we have yard work on the agenda for this weekend. Oh well… I’m not complaining – it’s good exercise and thankfully we don’t have mountains of snow to deal with! What kind of plans do you all have for this weekend?

Cats Cleaning Up for Caturday!

A typical bathroom would have an assortment of bath and beauty products like these and many, many more…

If you think about it, it’s really quite fascinating. Collectively us humans probably spend untold billions of dollars each year using products to keep the skin and hair on our bodies suitably coiffed, groomed, perfumed,  and cleaned. Body washes in every appealing scent known to mankind, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, facial cremes, toners, astringents, shaving cream, lotions, colognes, deodorants, and more. And, of course, within those categories are a mind-boggling variety of products to chose from. Want soap? Did you want mild, scented, unscented, antibacterial, for sensitive skin, or something made from natural ingredients only? Not to mention the devices to aid in the process – from razors to loofah sponges to wash clothes and everything in-between. There must be literally thousands upon thousands of ways to help keep us looking and smelling as beautiful as can be. Read more

Life Takes an Unexpected Turn and We Have a Winner!

Treats, naps, looking cute, chasing bugs…That’s my thing, okay? Not doing blog posts…

Hmmm… Let’s see. A couple of weekends ago I had to fill in for human Mom and do her Caturday blog post because she claimed she had a migraine or some lame excuse like that. Now, she claims she’s too busy and overwhelmed – another lame excuse if you ask me. Apparently out of the blue she was contacted by someone she used to work with and he offered her a job that was too good to refuse – since she already has a job, she had to commit to helping out at her old job while working at her new one. She calls it burning both ends of the candle. Whatever… all I know is that when I was rescued, I didn’t sign up to write blog posts, so I’m going to do what any respectable cat would do on a Caturday (or any day of the week now that I think about it…) Read more

Happy 9th Birthday to our Virgo Cat, Zee!

by Deb at 4:50 AM • Uncategorized36 Comments

Zee-9-BD What!!! 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.
