Cat Count Camouflage – Hiding in Plain Sight!

Glasses, check. Phone, check. Lunch, check. Purse, check. Keys, check. One, two, three, four, five, six. Six. Six. And then it begins. The mad rush in which I gain an inordinately high number of Fitbit steps first thing in the morning before I leave for work as I look for whichever cat of mine, in my “cat-count-before-I-go-to-work” ritual is missing because I have seven cats, not six.

Rolz the Cat Struggles to Stay Awake for Sunday Selfie!

I know it’s Sunday-Selfie, but Rolz is just too exhausted to participate if you could please pardon him this week…

Ya know that feeling, the one where you’re on the couch, doing your best to stay awake during whatever favorite show it is that you’re watching, but you just can’t stay awake, because you’re so tired from the long and exhausting day you’ve had that it’s literally painful to even open your eyes. Well, that’s Rolz trying to stay awake for his Sunday Selfie. Even though he’s already been napping most of the morning and afternoon and he has no chores to attend to, no blog posts to write, and no responsibilities whatsoever, having me take just one photo was far too taxing for him to stay awake!

Oh, to be a cat! Happy Sunday – may all of you have a day as gloriously relaxing as the one Rolz is having!

Happy New Year 2019 from Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles

Yet another year is upon us and we will be reminded to set goals, make resolutions, and other life-affirming commitments. There is nothing wrong with that, but for me, time is far too fleeting for me to measure it in terms of one year ending and another beginning. I try my best to set goals everyday and to live each day to the fullest, and in the moment.

Life continues to serve it’s daily ritual of ups and downs, much of it a challenge, reminding me I’m not always in the drivers seat, even if I want to be. Regardless of the roadblocks I still try to find the sliver of sunshine in even the cloudiest of days. It might be something as small as having a purring cat sit on my lap, but that small act fills my heart with love and peace.

I don’t have any wise words to share, other than this simple message – please try to be kind to one another in the days to come and not let anger, resentment, or bitterness guide your way. We all have our struggles and crosses to bear, so why not let compassion and empathy be our yardstick to guide the way. both expel emotions, but one is positive and healthy, the other is not.

Happy New Year everyone!! I wish you all a happy and productive journey ahead and may all the kitties of the world be kept safe and blessed.

Meowy Catmas 2018 from Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles

Happy Holidays! We’re taking a break today to spend the day enjoying Christmas with our family.

Much love, peace, and joy to you and yours from Deb, Dan, Zee, Zoey, Mia, Peanut, Rolz, Kizmet, and Jazmine.

The Cats and the Christmas Box

A gift for us? I’ll take care of it…

When a box comes into the house it’s a BIG deal. After all, when you’re a cat, it’s rule number one to either sit on, in, or near it. For this particular box, addressed to the cats mind you, Rolz took it upon himself to claim ownership and took the role VERY seriously.

Still guarding it (with a little help from Jazmine).

Fine…you can guard it now, but just for a minute…

Sometimes a cat might have to get up for one reason or another, perhaps to use the litter box, thank you very much, and sure enough, there will be another cat at the ready, in this case, Kizmet.

Alright! Enough Mr. Nice Guy! Get off my box, now!

Being a rather patient cat by nature, Rolz allowed Kizmet his box-sitting moment, but even a patient cat has his limits…

Oh look, it’s a bunch of stuff for us to sniff!

When that exciting moment finally arrives, the one in which the box is ceremoniously opened, the cats do their obligatory sniffing and poking around. But it quickly dawns on them they no longer have a box to sit on and life goes back to normal…

Well, since we no longer have a box to sit on, might as well go back to bed…

Happy Sunday everyone!
