Monday Mischief: Quarantining Is Hard Stuff

Queen Noel, the Christmas Cat, here, posting on the current situation at DogDaz Zoo: The humans are in the house all day, every day, and taking up a great deal of our space and oxygen. Mini has decided that Mom’s chair is now her chair, but I want it! So I think I will just sit on her until she moves. Which she doesn’t. I think I may need to use force.

Mini and I have temporarily worked out our differences by having a tiff and then moving to the platforms of the cat village. There is currently a detent between us, at least until I want something she has (or vice versa).

All this quarantining is exhausting. I think I will move to the kitchen table and take a nap on the newpaper.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Home – The Best Place To Be

Hi, Mini Cooper here.

I have been working very hard to make sure that everyone stays in line while they are isolated in the house because of this scary COVID thing. It has been great fun to have all the humans at our beak & call (that means that they are our servants (but what else is new).

I have made it my job to occupy as many laps as I can throughout the day.

Noel here. Look, little Mini, it is “Beck and Call” and I am the only one that can tell the human’s what to do. I was here first, before all of you, and Mom’s lap is mine if I beckon. So back off and scat!!

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: StayHomeSaveLives

This post means a great deal more to me than just a fun picture with 4 of my zoo. If you look closely, it shows the personalities of each animal.

  • Louise: Always pawing at me. She knows she can’t be on the couch but she finds ways to get as close as she can by having a paw on me. She seems to be saying ‘Please, Mommy, I was here first. Pet me!,’ and I do. She is the quiet leader of the pack.

  • Sofie: The bundle of anxiety that is always at my feet. Through it all, she seems to have that mischievous smile whenever you snap a picture. She is loving that Mommy is home all the time now, but, as you can assume, it has made any separation all the harder for her.

  • Mini Cooper: On my lap 24/7 these days. When she isn’t on my lap, she is meowing for me to sit down, so she can be on my lap, or my hip, or my keyboard…

  • Charles: Next to you but not on you. Wanting to be the center of attention, but knowing he is small and has to share with all these big animals. He has gotten very vocally demanding these days and that little yip can go right through you. He is pouting in this shot, as he is prone to do because he wants his 3rd supper (he is the most food demanding mugwump ever).

And then, of course, there is me. Currently hiding from the world so that I don’t catch this horrible COVID-19 virus. The animals are my social distancing, especially when I am out walking them. I am one of those ‘vulnerable’ people they keep talking about. I am one of the ones that, if this thing hits, the potential is that it will take me down hard.

Please STAY HOME if you can. If you can’t, follow the rules about washing your hands and keeping your distance. And, for my sake, if you have not been isolated for 14 days with no symptoms, please stay away. That is how we show love and respect in the age of COVID-19.

Thank you to all the first responders, the front line medical workers, the animal caretakers, the grocery store and essential services clerks, the people that keep the warehouses stocked so that things get shipped, and the transportation crews that keep the supply chain going. We will get through this, even though we have to do it #separatelytogether.

Stay well and go wash your paws!

Monday Mischief: Everybody’s Home

This is just a normal day at the DogDaz Zoo: 3 dogs out for a walk and the 3 cats waiting for their return.

Yes, that really is our doormat, long before COVID-19.

I did not realize that Charles’ lead got caught in the garden timbers and he could not get up the stairs. You can see it at the very beginning of the video. I had to go and release him to shoot the second half of the video. He is such a silly little man!’

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Stay well and remember we will get through this #separatelytogether

Wonderful Wednesday: Thank You

Being a 13-year-old cat has its perks!

No one expects you to play anymore, so they are really amused when you get the zoomies and go flying around the house.

No one expects you to gain much weight at this age, so they let you eat a little more food than they used to.

No one expects you to be awake the cat-usual 6 hours a day anymore, so now I sleep more like 20hrs.

Being a senior cat definitely has its advantages, but I can’t remember what they are…

How old are you?
