The Zee & Zoey Cats and Family

Happy 5th Birthday to Sweet Jazmine!

Happy Birthday sweet Jazmine!

 

Unbelievable, that cute little pipsqueak that Dan and I fell head over heels in love with when we first saw her up for adoption at the Global Pet Expo in March of 2014 and subsequently adopted (how could we not?) is 5 years old today! How is that possible? It seems like just yesterday she was a tiny, puff of diva fur ruling the household. Now, here she is, a giant puff of diva fur, ruling the household!

My beautiful bundle of ginger fur! She really is one cool cat!

Anyhow, Happy Birthday to my dear, precious Jazmine. I wish I had the time to do a long post in your honor, but it’s just not in the cards for me right now. But I can promise you that you’ll be spoiled even more than you already are. I love you and cherish every second of love, laughter, and sunshine you bring into my heart and the hearts of others.

Cat Portraits of Fall in Florida

Ah…Fall in Florida! Or is it Summer? In Florida one never really knows, as the seasons all seem about the same!

September 22 was the first day of fall and here in Florida, that’s like saying it’s the first day of spring, or summer, or winter, as we typically don’t have a dramatic change of season like you do up north where you’ll see the green leaves turn into a glorious cacophony of reds, browns, yellows, and oranges. For us, we also have a glorious cacophony of colors, only they are year round, and they are vibrant purples, pinks, greens, yellows, reds, oranges, and more. Since I don’t have any quintessential fall pictures to share, I thought I’d share a few that I think have a fall look to them! Read more

Happy 13th Birthday to Zee!

13 years old…still as handsome as ever!

My precious Zee turned 13 years old on Friday, September 7th. I had wanted to share the celebratory news that day, but unfortunately, I was unable to do so as I had come down with a debilitating virus that kept me bed-ridden for the past several days. That said, Happy Belated Birthday, Zee! I love you so much, and as always, you remain such a sweet, loving, and devoted cat.

Not a day goes by that you don’t bring a smile to my face, and even after all these years, you still find the time to bring gifts for Dan and me to wake up to every morning!

Dan and I are so blessed to have such a generous and loving cat in our lives! Thank you, Zee!

Your feline family remains devoted to you as well, especially mama Zoey and your daughter Mia, who find you completely irresistible and always want to be by your side!

As usual, Mia and Zoey stick to you like glue…whether you like it or not!

Muahhh! I love you so much, Zee!

Love and wishes for many more Happy Birthdays in the years to come!

Having Patience as a Patient With a Little Help From My Cats

This is an older photo, but it gives you a sense of me at home on Tuesday prior to surgery.

Tuesday, June 26th was a hectic day. I was squeezing every last thing I could possibly jam into my life prior to 12:30 p.m., the designated time Dan was going to drive me to my scheduled vitrectomy surgery to remove a macular pucker that had developed my left eye after I had emergency laser surgery in January to repair a tear in my retina.  I did laundry. I cleaned my office. I paid my bills and like a mad lunatic, I sent about a dozen emails to various people at my day job, outlining projects they were already fully aware of what needed to be done with. Read more

Red Light, Green Light – Cats, Books, and the Internet

It’s amazing how much trouble one little red dot can cause…

Last Friday at 3:54 p.m. while I was at work, I got a text from Dan informing me we had no internet, as someone had accidentally cut the cable wires in our neighborhood. He was told by AT&T, our provider, it would be fixed by 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. Rather than get upset over something out of our control, I just took it with a grain of salt and resigned myself to a night of cable TV, as AT&T is our streaming provider and continuing to binge watch our new series of choice, Justified, would not be an option.
