Wonderful Wednesday: Mini Wins

Mini here: You know that the arm of the couch is mine. And I don’t know why this new smelly little dog thinks she gets to own my spot. No way. I showed her!! I sat on her head until she moved. Enough is enough! Go away, Jolie. Go find your own spot.

Monday Mischief: Somethings Never Change

Mini Mischief from 2015. She still can be found in the laundry basket sometimes. Don’t every change, Mini Cooper!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wonderful Wednesday: Afternoon Paws

Noel, the Christmas Cat, here: Mom put the summer curtain up in my herb window because the sun heats up the whole kitchen in the afternoon. She also takes all the plants out of the window so they don’t burn up. I love when she does that. I can sleep in that window for hours and spread out.

Did you know that all the neighbors walk by and look for me in the window? Everyone knows our house as the one with the beautiful white cat in the front window (that’s me).

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Wonderful Wednesday: Guarding Lulu

I do not know exactly what Noel and Mini Cooper knew, but when they started guarding Louise while she slept, I got nervous. I know that animals are much more in tune with each other than we are with them. They know who is sick and who has something going on long before our senses even begin to wake up. So when the cats gathered around Lulu, I was on alert.

Noel had started to stare at Louise and stay close. That is unusual behavior here at the zoo, though sometimes if Mini can, she will try to lick a dog’s face and ears, which quickly Lulu will tell her to ‘bug off’ and Charles will take a quick snap.
Being the oldest (15 and 3 months), of course, Miss Noel sometimes takes a short nap even while doing an important job..

Lulu is OK. Her condition has not changed that I know of, however, when the animals talk, I really try to listen.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Monday Mischief: Mini Cooper Turns 8 On Memorial Day

Miss Mini Cooper, “The Baby,” turns 8 years young today. It is hard to believe because she is still such a kitten in many ways. Playful and verbose, she is a pal to all and just wants attention and a good cuddle.

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl. We all adore you! (Even Charles)

And we can never forget the animals and humans that have served and continue to serve in the armed services so that we can live freely in this country.

This is the Washington DC area’s first monument honoring women in the military which was unveiled at the Women In Military Service For America Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery in October 2020. It is called ‘The Pledge.’

Commissioned by the nonprofit US War Dogs Association and sculpted by acclaimed artist Susan Bahary, The Pledge is a bronze statue that depicts a kneeling servicewoman locking eyes with her working military dog.

In addition to being the DC area’s first statue to honor all servicewomen, the statue is also the first monument in the nation to honor female military working dog handlers.

Wonderful Wednesday: Singing The Song Of My People

<Turn your sound on> In the morning, I feed the animals and then I go into my office. It never fails that almost every morning Queen Noel, who eats in her cat window in the kitchen, grabs one of her loveys and sings until I come back to the kitchen so she can present it to me. I assume it is her way of saying either, ‘thank you for the meal’ or ‘feed me more, servant!’.

The story behind the pink arm: I was throwing out a whole bunch of old dog toys a few weeks ago after Sofie passed, and there was this pink arm in the bottom of the toy bin. I put the broken and chewed up toys in the trash but the arm must have fallen on the kitchen floor only to be squirreled away by Noel. She appears to have added it to her pile of yellow birds and ‘puppy’ behind the plants in her window. Now it is one of her morning loveys. She is always so proud when she brings me her ‘kill.’

Wonderful Wednesday: Playful Nine & Sofie Memories

A memory that Peanut found of Nine, Sofie, and Louise. Nine and Sofie were probably about a year old and Lulu a year older than that. I guess it was around 2011 or 2012. Nine and Sofie used to play together a lot back then. Nine loved to play with the dogs. Photographic Memories are a wonderful thing to have. Photographs are a great way to look back and smile.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Black and White Sunday: Noel & Puppy

A study in black and white of Noel, the Christmas Cat, Queen of the Zoo, in her window with her current favorite lovey, Puppy. I must say she cracks me up the way she brings me Puppy and then just ‘meow, meow, meow’ until I come and say ‘thank you’ for her bringing me this very special prize.

Have an awesome Black and White Sunday!
