Monday Mischief: Welcome Miss Mini Cooper

29 Sep

Because there wasn’t enough craziness going on here at DogDaz Zoo, we added a new snuggler to the pride/pack.


Mini Cooper

I made the mistake of going to the pet store on Saturday. Now that I work outside the house during the week, weekends are the only time I have to get stuff done.  While looking for dog cookies, I sent V to get cat food.  MISTAKE!!  V bumped into a rescue group called Cats R Us and a wall of sweeties needing homes.  Shame on me! I know better than to take V to the pet store, ever, but never when there is an adoption event.  Welcome our newest snuggler.

Mini is sooooo small.  She weighs about 3 lbs, if that.  She was found with her siblings under a hedge in a grocery store parking lot back in June or July. She is the runt and was so underweight they thought she wouldn’t make it.  Her nice foster humans took care of her and now she is home with us.  Strong and feisty and ready to take over the world, soon.  Everyone is starting to pile up at the kitten room door. (You know my rule, a few days of smelling under the door before we have a formal introduction.)  Sofie doesn’t want to go for a walk because she knows that something new is in the house.  She just sits outside Mini’s door and whines and whines.

Yes, Mini Cooper is a little fancy car.  The rescue ran out of names so they started to name the kittens after cars.  I really liked her sister Bentley too.  They called her Minnie but we decided on Mini (or maybe MC).

I took a little video last night when we first got her home.  She was wild for the tag on her new bed. This girl is going to be a love.

And now we are six (4 cats, 2 dogs).  How many cats qualify me for a crazy cat lady and what mischief did you get into today?



This is a blog hop. I hopped it from Snoopy’s DogBlog. Check them out for more mischief.


Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

      We could do the sheep, but for the Roos we will have to come to you. Here foster humans were New Zealanders. 🙂

    How exciting! Congratulations! Mini is a lucky kitty. She looks like a sweetie. Good luck with her. You’re not a crazy cat lady yet.

      So how many cats make you crazy? 5? And are there crazy dog ladies?

        I think you’re not classified till you reach double digits. 10+ cats. Or yes – 10+ dogs. You’ve got some leeway….

    My mom had four cats for many years, but then she decided to get dogs and got down to three cats, and now just two. It is definitely easier than four dogs!

      We are just pack animals I guess. We love groups

    Little Mini is absolutely ADORABLE! Kittens are so much fun – everything is new and exciting – I’m sure her “furrrramily” is anxious to meet her!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Yes Sammy. I am just afraid dogs will mistake her for squirrel cause she is so small.

    Our Mummy has six guinea-pigs, does that make her a crazy guinea-pig lady?
    Plus, a huge welcome to Mini, whee’re sure she’ll love her new life. What a little cat though, only 3lb when she was a baby, cute!

      Piggies. She is 3 lbs now. We have had 5 guineas. We must be crazy guinea people too.

    Miss you Min(nie), the kitten room is a lot quieter without you. We couldn’t be happier about your new home and family.

      Hello Kiwi. You did a great job of fostering. She is a doll. Still hasn’t met everyone yet. Dogs did freak her out at first. – LoriN.
