The Zee & Zoey Cats and Family

It’s Beginning to Look A lot Like a Kitty-Cat Christmas!

It can’t be December! I wasn’t done with January through November yet!

Yesterday was December 1st and rather than lament the fact that time is going by at much too rapid a speed, and that I have far too much to do before the year ends, I decided to post a photo montage of some of my favorite festive-feline holiday images over the years. It won’t slow time down, but it is nice to take a trip down memory lane. But in all seriousness, how is it December already when I don’t even feel I’ve caught up to June yet? Is it just me, or do you all feel life is traveling by at warp speed lately?

Remembering my sweet angel Harley from Christmas 2012.

My angel Jazz back in 2012. Napping under the tree was one of his favorite holiday activities.

Kizmet’s first Christmas with us back in 2013.

Zoey and Mia sharing some mother/daughter snooze time.

Zee, our ever regal holiday King.

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without me holding a cat while wearing a leopard Santa hat!

Rolz (and Jazmine) are always happy to keep watch of any gifts that might make their way into our house.

Jazmine and Kizmet help with decorating…

I wonder who knocked that ornament off the tree, Kizmet?

Christmas isn’t just for cats, it’s for people and dogs, too!

It sure is, Mia! It sure is!

The best way to make a holiday gift bag look more festive, put a cat next to it! Thanks, Peanut!

That special moment when all the lights are off, except the soft glow from the Christmas tree. Even Rolz seems impressed.

The best way to get through the holidays…act like a cat and don’t stress!

Happy Thanksgiving 2018 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!

You’ve seen it all from me before – I share these same pictures every year, and I also say it every year – I love Thanksgiving. Not just for good food, good football, sharing time with family, and not working, but for counting the blessings in my life I’m afforded to have every day despite that life can be messy, complicated, stressful, and downright disagreeable. Here are some of the everyday things I’m grateful to have in my life:

My cats, my family, my friends, coffee, chocolate, sweatpants, 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!

 

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!
