Not Really Wordless Wednesday – It’s the Simple Things in Life that Often Bring the Greatest Joy


Kizmet poses wistfully in front of a basket overflowing with cat toys dreaming of his elusive, but favorite toy… the pom pom.

In our house it would be 100% impossible to hide the fact we have cats. Cat condos, baskets and baskets of cat toys, cat beds, cat pillows, cat blankets, cat food dishes – in every room and every where you look, there is something directly related to making sure our cats are well-loved and taken care of.

Happy 3rd Birthday to Kizmet and Happy 4th of July to America!


According to his adoption paperwork, our feline firecracker, Kizmet, was born July 4th, 2012. He was called “Logan” at the time, but I renamed him Kizmet, as in believing it to be fate that I found him at a Pet Supermarket that I normally didn’t shop in. I fell hopelessly in love with him the moment I set eyes on him in his cage back in November of 2012 and so did Dan after I texted a picture to him. Read more

For Cats, Everyday is the Lazy Day of Summer!


Rolz takes the lead – it’s summer – let the lazy days begin!

When it comes to cats, let’s face it, they have the market cornered on lazy. With their ability to nap for approximately 16 hours a day, we may as well give the trademark to them. But with summer officially here and the extra rays of sunshine that goes along with it, for my cats, the nap to sun quotient becomes even higher! Read more

Way Back Wordless Wednesday – Young Cats Edition

Last week for Wordless Wednesday, I shared a retrospective of the Zee/Zoey gang as they are now – my grown up, feline family! For today’s Wordless Wednesday, I thought I’d go in the opposite direction and share an image of each of them in their younger days!! Wow… time sure does fly! Enjoy and have a great rest of your week!


Zee back in 2010. While he is older now, some things never change – he loved lounging on the counter then and he loves it now!


This was Zoey back in 2008 – it’s hard to believe she was a mama less than a year after that! Just look at that precious face – it’s no wonder I fell in love with her the second I laid eyes on her!


Even as a youngster, Rolz has always looked mature for his age. Seen here he is celebrating his first birthday with a card sent to him from his brother, Zeuss, who lives in Boston.


Mia has always looked like a pretty princess. Here she is at 5 months of age.


Peanut has a look of terror in her eyes as she sits atop this fake, life-size panther we have in our dining room (doesn’t everyone have a life-size panther in their dining room?) She is a little over a year in this picture and perhaps the terror stems from the fact she might think it is a real panther!


This was Kizmet in November of 2013 – he was about four months old when I resuced him and this was him at the vet’s office for a checkup to make sure he was healthy before I introduced him to the rest of the cats.


This was Jazmine last March when she was about four months old. This was the first time she ventured out of the bedroom we had her staying in so that we could slowly introduce her to the rest of the feline household. Suffice it to say she has ruled the roost ever since…

Close-Up Cats for Wordless Wednesday

I thought as we all try to play catch-up from the craziness of the holidays and settle into the routine of the New Year, it would be nice just to take a mid-week break by doing nothing but looking at beautiful kitties for a moment. To help in that regard, I have selected a picture of each of my darling cats. All of these are recent photos that Dan has taken within the past couple of months and it’s just amazing how big they’ve all gotten…


The King of the Castle… our handsome Zee.


And his beautiful Queen… the always stunning Zoey.


Wide-eyed Mia.


Sweet and loving Peanut.


Handsome Rolz.


A regal Kizmet.


Our gorgeous Jazmine – while she is a big girl, she’s not nearly as wide as the photo would suggest… it’s just the angle of the camera!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures – I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite, they are all so beautiful! Have a great day and wonderful rest of the week!
