Caturday: CatDaz of Summer, Too

Noel, loves her herb window, as you know. But in the heat of the summer (the CatDaz of summer), we put up a curtain because that space, with all its windows, heats up the kitchen and also burns the plants. But, it is not too hot in there for Ms. Noel. She still wants to eat in the window and spend most of her day. Like every good animal at the zoo, she is a FOMO*. So she occasionally sticks her head out to make sure nothing is happening that she should be involved in.

*FOMO: fear of missing out.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Nope, Not today

Noel is immortalized on a kitchen towel.

(It was a present from my sister-in-law.)

Caturday: Mini Rules! Take That Jolie

Mini does not like that Jolie has taken over her favorite spot on the couch. I physically have to pick Jojo up and move her away or Mini gets all bent out of shape.

So I made a similar pillow mountain on the other side of the couch for Jolie. What does Mini do? Go over to that side and sit right on Jojo.

Watch this spot as this relationship evolves. (It is cracking us up)

Caturday: Huh?

I think we were disturbing someone’s nap.

Huh? Did you want something? I am not moving! No way! Not today. It’s CATURDAY!

Caturday: Dilute Tortie?

Mini has the most beautiful dilute colors. She is what is known as a dilute tortie (at least that is what the rescue said when she was a kitten).

A Dilute Tortie cat is a cat with traditional tortoiseshell coat coloring that is more pastel and less vibrant.  The coat pattern appears diluted with blue and yellow colors and less orange and black. Dilute Tortoiseshell cats are not a breed of their own and are a variation of a tortoiseshell cat. 

Dilute torties have a specific genetic makeup that creates their unique diluted, double-color pattern. It is important to note that similar to calicos, Tortie cats, including the diluted ones, are almost always females.

This plays into creating their coat because the X chromosome carries the “instructions” for how their fur is going to look. So if a cat is a female and has two X chromosomes, it means they have received two instructions for their coat pattern, and this is where we see multiple colors being blended. – https://faqcats.com/what-is-a-dilute-tortie-cat/

Caturday: Welcome Home

I am not sure if Noel is happy to see me or ticked off because I am late to feed her?

Caturday: Clowder of Curs and a Cat

If you have a group of animals of different species that live together then what group terminology do you use for them.?

A group of dogs is called a Pack, but if you add some cats, is it still a Pack? If they are wild dogs they can be a ‘Cowardice of Curs.’

A group of cats is could be a Clowder, Pounce, Clutter, or Glaring, and feral cat groups are called a Dout or a Destruction.

I have decided that DogDazCats2 Zoo this Caturday is a ‘Clowder of Curs and a Cat.’ What is in a name anyway?

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.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Too Cute To Eject

Noel has her own pillow on my bed but somehow she takes over the whole bed regardless. How do you kick such sweetness out?
