Caturday: Rollin’

 

Noel, the Christmas Cat here – At about 4 PM every afternoon I have to roll at the top of the stairs for about 10 minutes. It is my ritual. Mommy is not sure why I do it, but I have been doing it about the same time everyday for years. Sometimes, I do it again later in the night, but late afternoon is my favorite time to roll. Do you roll?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Noel, The Mouser

Noel’s favorite toys are these little yellow chicks. They live in the herb window (where she spends most of her time). After breakfast, which she of course eats in the herb window, I usually go into my office down the hall from the kitchen, to start my day. In about 10 or 15 minutes I will hear her calling me, insistently – “Come now, you must see this, come come come.” She usually carries one of the chicks, as if it was a mouse prize, from the herb window to somewhere else on the kitchen counter or the kitchen table. She wants me to come and see her prize. Seriously, this goes on almost every morning. Then I pick up her chick, pat her on the head, tell her what a wonderful mouser she is, and throw it back in the herb window.

I want to come back as Noel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
