Monday Mischief: And Then She Was Home

Mom went into a very scary place with lots of Doctors and Nurses and was gone for what seemed like forever so that they could fix her back. 57 staples later she came home with a walker and cane and medicine and we needed to take care of her day and night while she learned how to not hurt so much.

Nurse Noel stayed by her side in bed all the time and sometimes she wasn’t so nice because she would make Mom get up and walk into other rooms or even feed her. Mostly, Noel lives on Mom’s bed anyway, so it wasn’t a big stretch for Noel, but it was nice for Mom to have a bed buddy.

Mini really liked that Mom was in bed too, so she and Noel made the decision to sit on Mom as much as possible and make it as hard as possible for her to change positions. Mom is doing much better now (6 weeks since surgery) and she is even picking up Mini (though she is not supposed to).

Nine, well he is a whole nother story that Mom will have to tell you. He wasn’t happy that she was no feeling well, so he decided to get sick too. But that is for another blog.

I would say that we cats did a really good job of taking care of her. No matter how sick a human is, they always need a cat.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: So Much Has Happened

We know that it has been many many weeks since Mom has posted any news from the Zoo. But, she thinks that it is time to start up again since the big dogs came back from vacation yesterday and she is sitting more at the computer again.

It was so nice not having the big dogs around, barking, and chasing, and doing all those dog things. Charles, the little dog, was still here during Mom’s recovery (which is still going on) and he has started to act like a real bossy boss, so we are hoping that the big dogs put him back in his little dog place and that he stops trying to manage us.

We mostly had Mom, and her bed, all to ourselves. Now that the big dogs are back we hope that doesn’t change because we really enjoy the comfy comforter, and nibbling on Mom’s hair while she sleeps.

Mom has a lot of stories to tell about things that have happened at the zoo over the last several weeks, but, just like her recovery from back surgery, they will take time. We are glad that we can be of service keeping her amused, cuddled, and always well-loved.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: See You Soon

Mom is going to have major back surgery next week and she will be literally, laid up, for a while. Louise and Sofie are going to have a little winter vacation with Sonya, the dog whisperer, for a few weeks while she is recuperating. Mom is not sure when she will be able to start walking long distances again, or when she can take a chance with 55 and 70 lbs dogs pulling her on the end of the leads.

Charlie and the cats will keep her warm until the big dogs return. Hopefully, it all goes well and she will be back walking the big dogs and blogging again in no time.

Don’t go too far away. DogDaz will be back soon.

Monday Mischief: Hall Shot

Animals can be so funny, don’t you think? Charlie was waiting for V, who is in the bathroom which is the door to the right. So, Sofie and Nine decided to join him and wait too. I could not resist taking the shot. You would think that these goofballs actually like each other. What is it about a closed-door that makes animals want to knock it down?

Black and White Sunday: Our Lil’ Terror

Nine has been getting into so much mischief lately. I am never sure what or who he is going to attack at any moment. He has been ripping up the carpet, especially the stairs, and all the fronts of the couches. As you know, he is merciless about chasing Noel and he and Mini get into some good fights too. The pheromone collar worked well for a long time, but now it seems to not really calm him at all. He is mostly a sweet boy, but he is making us crazy with his antics. Maybe it is a mid-life crisis at 9 years of age. Who knows.

Caturday: Repose #27

The cats have really taken to sleeping on Louise’s old dog bed. They have gotten to the point, that if she is laying it, which she still does sometimes, they try to stare her down until she moves to her new bed. You never know who you will find there, these days.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

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.

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?
