Wonderful Wednesday: Unpaid Teaching Assistants

Helping Mom work is a very important part of our cat job here at the DogDazCats2 Zoo. Somedays, well lately most days, I am helping Mom with her classes. Her students even ask for me by name if I don’t show up in the morning. In years to come people are going to look back at Mom’s teaching videos and wonder why there is always a cat named, Mini Cooper, on the desk. (BTW: Mom teaches adults not kids, so it is interesting to see how the grownups react to me assisting Mom to teach.)

 

Nine also has been known to show up and disrupt Mom’s day, especially when she is trying to take notes. He, unlike, Mini, is video camera shy and seems to disappear as soon as the little red light comes on.

Do you help your human work?

P.S. On Monday (Valentine’s day), Mini decided to spill a completely full cup of coffee all over my desk, while I was teaching a class. Thanks Mini. Very helpful. I guess you want to be paid more.

Monday Mischief: Nine is Eleven

Happy 11th birthday, Mr. Nine.

You sure are one handsome dude.

Though you occasionally pick on your sisters and climb up into the rafters (which scares the heck out of us), you are an upstanding citizen at the zoo and a cat we can always count on. We love you tons!

And it’s Valentine’s Day to boot! So extra love and kisses for our special boy!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wonderful Wednesday: How Can I Relax?

Relaxing is getting kind of difficult around the zoo lately with all these ghosts, goblins, and skeletons hanging around. I think the humans have gone a little batty.

How’s your October going?

Wonderful Wednesday: The Dishwasher

Who needs a dishwasher when you have Noel to clean the dishes for you? Especially when it is whitefish and lox.

Wonderful Wednesday: 5 of 7

I was making breakfast and I turned around and 5 of the 7 furballs were in the kitchen watching me. I am sure that they could not have wanted more to eat since they had all just eaten. But, of course, they do! Why are animals always hungry? Stella of course was in her private suite and Charles was sleeping with the retired human (usually until the crack of noon). No second breakfast for you boys and girls, sorry. But, lunch is only 5 hours away.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Black and White Sunday: Nine & The Fly

K8 took this photo a couple of years ago of Mr. Nine and a bug on the backdoor screen.

Isn’t it so spring? What’s your favorite bug?

Wonderful Wednesday: Why Cats Nap

Did you know that cats sleep an estimated 18 – 20 hours a day? If you own a cat you know that they are most active when it is dark out and especially at dusk and dawn. You want to sleep and they want to play. Then, when you get up in the morning they have breakfast and go to sleep. If you have ever brought home a kitten, this can drive you crazy.

Well, domestic cat behavior is not that removed from their ancestors, the large cats like lions and tigers, who hunt at night. They lay low at the darker night-time and warmer day-time hours, when other predators may be out and about. Have you seen your kitty play like she is stalking and capturing her prey, just like a big cat would? All of that is just inherited cat instinct, like when to sleep.

Your indoor domesticated cat will adjust its sleeping schedule to be with you during the day more, especially around its feeding schedule, but outdoor cats tend to stay on their instinctual night schedule. I figure if we understand that our cat is just being, well a cat, it might help us understand why they do what they do. Sweet dreams, Kitty!
