With Cats and the Holidays, it’s Not About Who’s Naughty or Nice, it’s About Cat Behavior

Never mind if I’ve been naughty or nice…it’s more like, have you taken into account my feline instincts BEFORE you judge me?

It’s officially the holidays – a time when one is frequently asked whether they’ve been naughty or nice, suggesting perhaps that if they’re naughty, Santa might not bring them a gift. When it comes to our cats, it’s not so much whether they’ve been naughty or nice; it’s how the holidays actually affect their instinctual behavior, sometimes causing them to be unintentionally naughty when they’re typically otherwise nice.

Classic Cat Behaviors that Often Defy Logic!

This is as basic as it gets – give your cat the best creature comforts of home and she’ll somehow find a way around it…

“Cattisms” – those nearly universal behavioral traits our cats have is something I could talk about all day and night if you let me. That’s probably why I enjoyed writing Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them so much – being a cat lover my whole life; I’ve got an endless supply of cattism experience! But, alas, I have laundry to do, and a house to clean, and bills to pay. Time’s a-wastin’ and there are only so many hours in a day! So, rather than focus on all those funny, weird, quirky, and iconic behaviors our cats have, I thought I’d share some of my favorites for today!

Take a peek – I’m sure you’ll recognize your cat in most of these scenarios! Read more

Happy Thanksgiving 2017 from Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles!

From big things, like my friends, family, and my cats, to the little things, like popcorn and leopard print, I’m grateful for so much in my life!

I love Thanksgiving – it’s a wonderful day of good food, good football, not working, counting blessings, and sharing time with my family. But honestly, I try my very best to live every day being grateful for what I have. It’s not always easy, even with the best intentions; life can be messy, complicated, stressful, and downright disagreeable. Despite that, there is always something to be grateful for if you look hard enough. And usually, you don’t have to look too far – this is just a sampling of what I mean, but here are some of the everyday things I’m grateful to have in my life:

My cats, my family, my friends, coffee, chocolate, sweat pants, wine, Cheez-Its, a great book, board games, the good health of my loved ones, when the Miami Dolphins win (this one is happening less and less), when a cat gets adopted, my fitbit, leopard print, nature, trips to the beach, Netflix, feeding my birds and squirrels, Facebook, talking to a real person on the phone (this is also happening less and less), Photoshop, riding our Harley, wearing cat ears, Christmas cookies, chia seeds, family photo albums, my iPhone 7plus, yarn & crocheting, popcorn, music, when people are kind to one another, fun fonts, having a job and being able to pay my bills, the privilege of having food to eat every day, a safe home to live in, and the freedom to be me.

How about you all? What are some of the everyday things in your life you’re grateful for? Have a blessed day from all of us at Zee & Zoey’s, and as I do every year, here’s my favorite picture of my gang for Thanksgiving and a visual reminder that despite what certain kitties might tell you, NOT ALL FOODS ARE SAFE FOR THEM TO EAT!

Can someone please hurry up with this blog post and say grace so we can eat!

The most miraculous part of Thanksgiving? That Rolz and Peanut were behaving and DID NOT even touch this turkey!
