The Zee & Zoey Cats and Family

Cats, Comfort, and Coping with Coronavirus – The New Normal

Staying in and working from home is becoming the new normal for many of us.

Like many, I’ve had to reinvent myself numerous times. I’ve been a child of divorce and a child who was bullied. I’ve been divorced myself, resulting in me being a single mom of two boys, struggling to keep us afloat. I’ve also been unemployed several times over the years, wondering how I’d ever pay my bills – all circumstances giving me the resilience and fortitude to survive. With the coronavirus epidemic, I’m reinventing myself again, only this time it’s not just me, it’s the whole world reinventing themselves and the planet we live in. Read more

Sunday-Selfie: A Black Cat Shadow Update

The pain is real folks, the pain is real…

I’ve been MIA for quite a while now – no time to blog like I used to, but I thought it would be nice to share a brief update on Shadow for Sunday-Selfie. He’s been with us nearly 4 months now – clearly a part of our family – with the reaction of his permanent residence still receiving mixed reviews. Dan and me, that’s easy, we love the guy with his bold personality and charming ways. The other seven cats, still, not so much. Read more

Happy 11th Birthday to Peanut, Rolz, and Mia

As my fingers type the words, Happy 11th Birthday to Peanut, Rolz, and Mia, my fingers have a sense of deja vu. The graphic I created for the occasion – didn’t I just do this a couple of months ago with the number 10? I honestly don’t know where time is going, or why it has to go by so quickly. I want time to stand still so I can enjoy my precious kittens who are no longer kittens so that a year passing doesn’t seem like mere days.

So much love and so many good memories. Happy birthday 11th birthday my sweet kitties and here’s wishing for many, many more. Happy birthday also to your brother Zeuss Catt, living a loving life with his family in Boston.

Dreams of my Favorite Things – Cats, Coffee, Crocheting, Reading, and Writing

Reading a book with Rolz tucked on my lap…pure heaven to me.

There are vision boards using images, photos, text and more, designed to serve as a source of inspiration and the power of attraction to attain goals. In the movie Field of Dreams, Kevin Costner speaks the famously recognized phase, “If you build it, he will come.” Using that theory, I’m sharing some of my favorite pictures of me doing what I like to do best, reading, writing, crocheting, or just chillin’ on the couch with a cat or two by my side as I enjoy the peace and inner Zen it brings me.

Welcome 2020 – Reconciling and Embracing Past, Present, and Future!

I was putting away the Christmas china the other day – those mistletoe decorated plates, cups and saucers reserved for the Christmas dinner I host every year for family and friends. It hit me with a wave of nostalgia just how much life had changed as I carefully wrapped each piece in the same newspaper I’d been using as protective padding for years – newspaper dated December 31, 1994 – a quarter-century old.
