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.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

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!

Black and White Sunday: Giving

If you have much, give of your wealth;

If you have little, give of your heart.

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.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

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

DogDaz Zoo: Christmas Star for Solstice

12.21.14 xmas
On the shortest day of the year, may you find light in the joy of the season!

Did you know that the ‘Christmas Star,’ the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, will be visible tonight (Dec 21). It has been 800 years since this happened. Maybe tonight will bring a miracle full of peace, health, and healing to the world. I can dream, right!

Black and White Sunday: Goodbye, Snowey

I loved this holiday decoration (picture from 2016). This year when I went to set it up, I found that a mouse had eaten a hole in the snowman (I keep this stuff in the garage). I went to find a replacement on the internet but they wanted a ton of $$ for it. I bought it originally at a discount store for a good price since I try to not spending too much on the decorations. I am sad. It was a fun one. But we do get to enjoy it in pictures. So this year I got to buy something new :-). Do you have decorations you love year after year?

Happy Holidays!

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.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: Gotcha Charlie #4

It is hard to believe that Charles rescued us 4 years ago. He has become such a central part of the pack. The top right picture is the day we brought him home and the bottom is Mr. Sexy now.  ❤

Happy Gotcha day, Charles. Little but mighty.
