Caturday: Dear Noel

Dear Noel: My humans keep trying to limit me to 2 meals a day, but I want more. What’s a feline to do? – Your devoted hungry fan – Grumps

Dear Grumps: You could always do what I do, stand on the kitchen table or counter and whine and whine and whine until they can’t take it anymore and they give you a least a few extra kibbles. Last week, I did that at 3 in the morning and it worked like a charm. Best of luck – Noel, the Queen of the Zoo

Caturday: Last Good Bye

Mr. Nine is sorely missed at the Zoo. There is not a day that goes by that Mini isn’t looking for her buddy. For a rather small guy (Nine was 9 lbs (of course he was)), he had a very large presence. He usually disappeared when anyone he didn’t know was in the house, but otherwise, he was out and about all the time (even at 3 AM): playing on the cat tree, sleeping in the boat (SS Stella), menacing Noel. He loved to lay behind V on the couch and snuggle.

We won the lottery for 11 years with that guy!

I will be adding him to the ANGELS page which you can find in the top menu.

Love you forever, Nine.

Caturday: Conversation with Noel & Nine

Noel: Nine, I told you that she was busy and she wasn’t going to give you any treats.

Why don’t you listen to me? I know her every move. I have been here 15 years.

Nine: Listen, old lady, I know that you have been around the zoo fur a million years, but if I stay on the counter and look cute and starving, she will break down and give us something. You just watch!

Noel: Is it working, Nine?

Caturday: The Boys Are Boss

Nine: Hey, Charlie. Don’t you think it is hard sometimes, being the only two guys in a house full of girls?

Charles: Not really, Nine. They know that I am really the bossman. Well, maybe don’t tell Sofie.

DogDaz Zoo: Happy Whistle-Pig Day

These Ground Hogs are such funny weather predicting creatures. They have names like woodchuck, land-beaver, and whistle-pig. Our regional prognosticator is named Punxsutawney Phil. Phil is known as the “Seer of Seers,” the “Prognosticator of Prognosticators” and the “Most Photographed Pennsylvanian.” People in Pennsylvania dress up in top hats and tails and have this whole big event each year to see if we are going to have an early spring or late winter. Leave it to a rodent to let us know.

Groundhog day actually designates the middle point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. There are 6 more weeks until the Vernal Equinox, which marks the beginning of spring. No matter what Phil says – SPRING IS COMING!!!!! Make way for crocus and daffodils.

CatWeek at the Zoo: Shades of Gray

This is not a black and white photograph. It is gray and white Nine on the gray carpet in a sunbeam. He looks like a kitten here. Ah, the much-desired sunspots are few in this house. The stairs are one place you can catch a few rays if a dog is not hogging the stair.

Caturday: Catching Stella

Trying to get a picture of Stella is almost impossible because even at 10 years old she is always a moving target. She is in constant motion when you visit with her. She is a sweetheart to humans, as you know, but just can’t tolerate other cats. She actually likes Louise and Sofie but does not like Charles at all (maybe because he is more cat than a dog). Meow Out Loud!

CatWeek at the Zoo: Transfixed

The cats, at least Nine and Mini, have been moving the curtains and spending a great deal of time, looking out the back window.

I thought, how nice, they are watching the world go by.

And then only this morning did I realize that V put a new bird feeder in line of sight to the window and they were watching all the action going on there. Cat entertainment is a main focus of our existence.
