Monday Mischief: Somethings Never Change

Mini Mischief from 2015. She still can be found in the laundry basket sometimes. Don’t every change, Mini Cooper!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: A Favorite

Looking back over old photos warms my heart. This was one of my favorites of Nine, Mini, and Noel. Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Caturday: CatDaz of Summer, Too

Noel, loves her herb window, as you know. But in the heat of the summer (the CatDaz of summer), we put up a curtain because that space, with all its windows, heats up the kitchen and also burns the plants. But, it is not too hot in there for Ms. Noel. She still wants to eat in the window and spend most of her day. Like every good animal at the zoo, she is a FOMO*. So she occasionally sticks her head out to make sure nothing is happening that she should be involved in.

*FOMO: fear of missing out.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Nope, Not today

Noel is immortalized on a kitchen towel.

(It was a present from my sister-in-law.)

Black and White Sunday: Stripes

Mini has taken over Louise’s dog bed now that she is gone. It warms my heart.

Caturday: Mini Rules! Take That Jolie

Mini does not like that Jolie has taken over her favorite spot on the couch. I physically have to pick Jojo up and move her away or Mini gets all bent out of shape.

So I made a similar pillow mountain on the other side of the couch for Jolie. What does Mini do? Go over to that side and sit right on Jojo.

Watch this spot as this relationship evolves. (It is cracking us up)

Caturday: Huh?

I think we were disturbing someone’s nap.

Huh? Did you want something? I am not moving! No way! Not today. It’s CATURDAY!

Caturday: Dilute Tortie?

Mini has the most beautiful dilute colors. She is what is known as a dilute tortie (at least that is what the rescue said when she was a kitten).

A Dilute Tortie cat is a cat with traditional tortoiseshell coat coloring that is more pastel and less vibrant.  The coat pattern appears diluted with blue and yellow colors and less orange and black. Dilute Tortoiseshell cats are not a breed of their own and are a variation of a tortoiseshell cat. 

Dilute torties have a specific genetic makeup that creates their unique diluted, double-color pattern. It is important to note that similar to calicos, Tortie cats, including the diluted ones, are almost always females.

This plays into creating their coat because the X chromosome carries the “instructions” for how their fur is going to look. So if a cat is a female and has two X chromosomes, it means they have received two instructions for their coat pattern, and this is where we see multiple colors being blended. – https://faqcats.com/what-is-a-dilute-tortie-cat/

Wonderful Wednesday: Hello, Miss Jolie

For Charles’ birthday (well, maybe more so to help Mom’s heart heal from the loss of so many furbabies over the last few months), a sweet matted soul named Jolie has come to live at the zoo. The minute she got here on Saturday (in the pouring rain, of course), she took over everyone’s heart (and Mini’s couch pillow). Noel is still a little suspect of the new ‘MOP’ in the house but otherwise, she just fit right in as if she had always been here.

I will tell you her story another day, but for now here are the main things we know:

  • They said she was a Yorkie mix but she definitely looks like Shih Tzu to me.
  • She is 6 years old according to the birth year they gave us, but they said 5, so we are not sure.
  • Her birthday is the same day as Nine’s was (Feb 14). Isn’t that a wild coincidence?
  • She is way over-weight (over 22 lbs and she should be more like 17 or less).
  • She is in desperate need of grooming (Sonya will cut it all off on Thursday).
  • They said she was housetrained but she does not have bathroom training as far as we can tell (it is like having a puppy all over again).
  • She has the sweetest personality and loves everyone and everything so far.

What a blessing!

Caturday: Welcome Home

I am not sure if Noel is happy to see me or ticked off because I am late to feed her?
