Will the Real Zee and Zoey Please Stand Up!!
After I got back from BlogPaws and all the swag was dumped on the kitchen floor, the cats were suitably curious and impressed…. but wait a minute, what’s that over there in the corner?
What the kitties did not realize, is that I had taken a Flat Pets class at BlogPaws and made life size standing duplicates of Zee and Zoey!! Sure, the edges were jaggedy and I did a bad job, but to the cats, they were certain intruders were in the house and they were NONE TO PLEASED!!! While I don’t have pictures of everyone’s reaction, I can firmly tell you now how my cats would react to the question I have asked myself numerous times lately – how would they feel if we brought another cat-mate into our household?
Well, our eldest, Jazz, was completely non-plussed, as he had already witnessed so many cats coming and going in his long life that he found the whole ordeal dreadfully boring. Our tortie, Harley, remained on the couch where you will always find her. She did not come in the kitchen to witness the situation and I am not certain she actually knows how many cats live with her. She is THAT lazy! Peanut remained true to Peanut – she boldly went right up to greet these new visitors and welcome them to our family! Mia’s reaction was the strongest of all of them – when she caught wind of these feline impostors, her thin and bony tail morphed into the size of a racoon’s tail right before our very eyes! She remained transfixed for several minutes before she ran off to a safer place!
While Zoey was initially curious and concerned, being the intelligent creature she is, she quickly realized it was nothing more than a photo mounted on foam board with spray adhesive and went back to curl up on the bed for a nap. Zee became more terrified with each passing second as he slowly crouched, inch by inch, towards these Godzilla sized creatures! At this point, if you had touched him on his back, he would have jumped to the ceiling in fright!
The only one left to make his opinion known is Rolz. I think his reaction says it all!!
