Black and White Sunday: Always Watching

Life on the other side of the glass clearly is very interesting. The life of a cat at this Zoo is one of always watching: watching birds; watching squirrels; watching bugs. And of course, of me, watching them, watching.

Caturday: Stella

Sofie and I were in visiting Stella and I was able to catch a few shots. Usually, she is moving around and really hard to photograph. Such a pretty baby, my Cali-torte. It amazes me how happy she is with her solitary life. She does like the occasional visit from Sofie or Louise. She doesn’t like Charles at all, and of course, hates all the other cats. She also is not a cat you see smile much but she does purr. I love you, Stella the Serious.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Back To The Grind

I don’t like that Mom had to go back to work this week! She is not paying any attention to me, so I am going to sit right in the middle of everything she is doing and be a pest. I am good at being a pest. What do you mean you don’t want me hitting your screens with my paws/claws? I think I will go over to the printer and start chewing on the ends of her papers. That always adds a nice touch to her notes.

Monday Mischief: DogDaz Year In Review

Another month has come and gone by quickly here at the DogDaz zoo. December is always a fun month because there are lots of celebrations, lights, and boxes. Everyone gets extra brushings, cats get extra wrapping paper, and dogs get extra cookies. But, then in a flash, it is gone. The first video below is our December review in 1-second clips every day.

When we look back we can see that the year 2020 was full of fun, fur, flowers, and catfights (at least from the Zoo’s perspective). Below is the DogDaz Year (Jan – Dec) in review video. Did you know that 12 months of 1 second a day clips come out to be about 8 minutes?

The animals did not mind that Mom had to wear a mask and they loved that she started to work from home full-time again. We are looking forward to a 2021 full of snow, sun, long walks, cardboard boxes, and lots of treats.

Happy New Year!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Smug New Year

Nine has been a real bully lately. Maybe he didn’t like what SantaPaws brought him for Christmas. He just does not want to share the tree and is really terrorizing everyone. He keeps trapping poor Noel in the corner when she is using the litter pan which I think is really unfair; is there nowhere safe, Nine? He has absolutely no respect for his elders (she is 13 and he is 9). Noel has a big scatch on her nose today 😦

Mini Cooper is just not OK with this behavior and tends to give it back to him but he wins most of the time. I wish this wouldn’t go on at 4 am when I am trying to sleep.

Wonderful Wednesday: Bring on the Roaring ’20s

This month marks 9 years that DogDaz has been on WordPress. It is incredible the blog friends that we have made. The moments we have shared together in cyberspace. The animals that have entered our lives and those that have left holes in our hearts.

Our wish for 2021 is to end this horrible human plague and to get back to a fuller, more active life. To hug the ones we love and to be able to hold them again. The Spanish Flu in 1918 ushered in the decade we called the roaring ’20s.

“In the Roaring Twenties, a surging economy created an era of mass consumerism, as Jazz-Age flappers flouted Prohibition laws and the Harlem Renaissance redefined arts and culture.”History.com

Maybe this plague will usher in a new roaring ’20s, with a surging economy again, but a focus on redefining civil justice and environmental urgency.

From our Zoo to yours, may you find health and happiness in the New Year and may you always be surrounded by fur, licks, love, and pet hair. Here is to a better tomorrow. Happy 2021!

Caturday: Boxing Day

Noel found her Xmas present when I set it aside to wrap. The cats are always helping. I think that it scared her when it made noise (you will hear it in the video if your sound is on). She drops it and then is not sure what to do. After this video, she jumped down off the ledge into the box that you see Mini very interested in. If one cat is in a box, you know all the other cats want it. Well of course they do, it is Caturday and Boxing-day all in one.

DogDaz Zoo: Merry Christmas 2020

xmas-2017

There is magic in the air.

There are lots of boxes and bows and things to play with.

All our people, large and small, are zooming this year.

We love Christmas morning. It is a special day. And we will let nothing stop it from being that way. We will still watch our loved ones open their stockings and wow at their gifts, even though it’s through a camera (so, we might send a gif).

Christmas day at the DogDaz Zoo humbles us every year, as we celebrate how lucky we are to be a family, to be together, to be warm, to be fed, and most of all, to be loved.

May the light of the season guide you and bring you peace.

Your friends at the DogDaz Zoo

Caturday: Stalking Mom

Noel stalks me in bed at night. She is really starting to freak me out. There is nowhere to hide from her. I wake up and she is right up in my face or on the nightstand staring at me. If I pet her, she bites me. I am starting to get nervous.

Black and White Sunday: The 2d Day

On the 2d day of Hanukkah, Noel was wondering why this big thing was taking up so much real estate in her sunning window.
