Happy 8th Birthday to Kizmet, an Extraordinary Cat!

Happy Birthday to a very special and extraordinary cat.

I’m nearly 60 years old and cats have been a part of my life all of those years, probably totaling at least a couple dozen during that timeframe. And I love them all – past and present – each with their wonderfully unique personalities. I won’t say I have favorites, that’s not my style, but I can say every once in a while, one of them really stands out, having an extraordinarily special nature. Kizmet is one of those cats. He’s a cat in which the earth revolves on a very special axis – one that is exceptionally kind, tolerant, intuitive, loving, patient, and accepting. In other words, he’s what’s good and pure about this world and a cat we could learn from. Read more

The Real Deal Before and After the Purina Better With Pets Summit

The last time I was in NYC was in 2010 – I was attending a writing conference that had nothing to do with cats. A few months after that, I found the strength and resolve to start Zee & Zoey’s blog and write my first book! 5 years later… wow… so much of my life has changed!

I had not mentioned this earlier, so it may come as a surprise to some of you to find out I have just returned from a two day, all expenses paid trip to New York City!! I was selected by Purina to attend the 2015 Better With Pets Summit and it was an opportunity too good to pass up. Not only would I be learning about ways to improve the emotional wellness between pets and the people that love them, but I would also get to hang out with some of my fellow blogging friends, meet new ones, and get paid to write about it. What?!!!!!!

I will be blogging about my experiences over the next couple of weeks, but for now, I just want to share all the eclectic, behind the scenes kind of stuff that won’t be making the professional editing cut! Read more

I’ve been blogging since 2010, so I think I know all of you pretty well by now… That said, no point in preaching to the choir… I know you all know how wonderful cats are and I know that as far as you’re concerned, just like me, you think every day should be National Cat Day!

Have a good one all and enjoy the day with your precious ones… And if you come across someone that doesn’t know how wonderful cats are, in honor of the day, help spread the word! Let’s make it a world where one day all cats have a furever home!

Happy 10th Birthday to Zee!

At 10 years old, Zee is still a handsome, regal, and beautiful boy

Today is Zee’s 10th birthday, and technically speaking, that’s a big deal, worthy of a super, duper BIG celebration. But much like his human guardians as he gets older, he prefers his birthdays to be a bit more low key and subdued. A day filled with naps, good food, the love of his humans, and the companionship of his feline housemates is what makes him happiest, and being that it is the Labor Day holiday and we will all be home, his wishes will be fulfilled, ensuring him a wonderful day with all that is near and dear to him.

Happy Birthday precious one – you have brought such love and joy into this house and we love you to the ends of the earth and back. Wishes for many, many more years together. xoxox

Since the moment he entered our house as a kitten back in 2005 to now, Zee has always been the king of the castle!
