DogDaz Zoo: Mom’s New Job

22 Sep


Mom started a new job last week.  Mommy worked from home, except when she was in another country, for the last 22 years.  So basically, we were able to be under foot all the time.  She walked the dogs during her lunch time, every day rain, snow, sleet or hail.  And we cats hung out on top of her computer and desk for years.  But, now all that has changed.  She has taken a job 90 minutes away by car.  She leaves at 5:30 am and feeds us at the unhumanly hour of 5 AM.  Even the dogs are not up at that time.

Mommy is worried about us since we are so used to someone being around all the time.  She hired a lady named Rachel to walk the dogs during the day (because they don’t know how to use a litter box like us smart cats) and she starts today.

Mommy is having separation anxiety.  We are not sure how to help her but Rachel said she will text Mommy and tell her how we all did.

Mommy is going to only post DogDaz Zoo pictures this week and not do any of the usual blog hops because she is trying to adjust to this new schedule and needs to calm down.

Maybe we can get Mom a thunder vest like Sofie’s for when she gets overwhelmed with worry about us animals.

Don’t go anywhere dear readers because DogDaz Zoo will keep posting everyday.  Mommy says that she loves us and she loves all her blog friends too and just needs to figure out her new schedule.

So for now, I’m in charge of the blog (which is the way it should be anyway!)  – Noel, the Christmas Cat, Queen of DogDazCats2

    Wishing Mum all the best in her new job. Tell her, that while it will obviously be an adjustment, you will all adapt and be totally fine! 🙂

      That is what people tell us. Mom wants to believe it. Time will tell.

    Good luck to your Mom on her new job but I’m sure YOU are as anxious as SHE is about the change. We all get used to our routines and when they change – EEEEK! I have a feeling as long as you get your walks and see a human during the day you’ll be fine….then when Mom gets home it will be “YAAAAAAAY!!!!!!” and lots of hugs! Nothing wrong with that!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Thanks Sammy. We have been knocking her over at the front door. Btw. She always wears black which we cover with fur at that time.

    Congratulations on the new job – I hope you find it deliciously rewarding, Lorian. And so great that you are finding your way to be with something new and different. The zoo is very resilient – imagine the new joy to be experienced each day when you are all reunited! 🙂 All the best.

    I’m glad that you take good care of your mom ….what a nice idea to send her a message to let her know you all are ok. Good luck to your mom with her new job, maybe she can wear a thunder shirt for the first time :o)

      omg I just saw your comment and I am sorry but you have me rolling on the floor with that thundershirt comment! lol

    • dogdaz

      September 22, 2014 at 19:57

      We do have to worry about her. She kind of gets lost without us around to show her where to go.

    our heart goes out to your Mom. That has to be one heck of an adjustment. It will take some time. Wishing her the best of luck!

      Thank you. It sure is a heck.

    We are wishing your mom all the best on her new job, we hope all works out and you all make adjustments quickly. That is a big change for all of you. We will be thinking of you. That thundershirt might just work since your mom seems to be having more issues with the change than you all are. Let us know if you find one to fit her, we would like to have one on hand in case we might need one for Mumsy at some pint. 🙂 Hugs and nose kisses

      Even the extra large seemed small for our Big Momma. Maybe we will try a something called a ‘straight jacket.’

    Oh my, that is an adjustment! Mom has had a job here and there where she is away all day but she hated it. Now she is away sometimes for half a day and that isn’t so bad. Hope you all can work it out. Mom said her being at the office full time was worse than being locked in a kennel, so she won’t be doing a job like that again unless there is absolutely no other option.

      Yes Emma, there is not always an option to stay home with you guys for us humans.

    Congrats on the new job! It’s going to take a lot of getting used to for you all. Take it easy guys 🙂

      Thanks. First day and the dog walker thought she was suppose to start next week. Oh my! It will take a lot of getting used to – for sure!

    New job! So exciting! Congratulations to your mom. That schedule sounds like a tough nut to crack, though. Soon, it will settle down and you’ll all be used to the routine. I wish I could eat my morning dinner at 5am. And then again at 7 and again at 10….

    Love and licks,

      We like to eat all day too Cupcake. Seems like the cats get to snack all the time.

    Aww good luck to mummy with the new job. You will all adjust in time, you’ll see… but until then I think the Thundershirt is a brilliant idea!!

    Good luck to your mummy in her new job. I’m sure you’ll all get used to the new routine soon

      Thanks – The dog walker got confused and didn’t show on Monday and we had to hold it all day. We are not sure we are going to like this any time soon.
