Caturday: In Ancient Times

“In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods;

they have not forgotten this.” – Terry Pratchett

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Mouse In The House

Yep, you heard that right. There is definitely a mouse in the house. We have been sitting vigil on the sink mat for days and staring under the stove. Mom says any rodent that would come into the Zoo should know better than to show its snout with Noel and Mini on the prowl. Days and Nites (mostly nights) just waiting. Noel gets tired so she sleeps on the mat just in case the rodent appears.

You don’t stand a chance you little varmint!

Black and White Sunday: BEEEEEP

Now that I am back to work the cats have decided they are going to take over the desk. It is kind of scary however when they both want to take it over at the same time. That is when fur can fly and things can become a CATastophy quit quickly. Papers tossed on the floor, files a mess, you get the idea.

I went to get coffee the other day and as I am walking back to my office I hear – beep, beep, beeeeeep, beeeeeep. I found Noel sleeping on my laptop keyboard (it was warm and cozy and a purrfect place for a nap) but it freaked me out. Luckily she only opened about 27 windows and did not delete anything.

How many cats do you have on your desk (and/or dogs on the floor)?

Caturday: My Window To The World

Noel here to discuss my herb window.

The herb window is one of my favorite places in the house. However, the window is made up of single panes of glass and they freeze up on cold nights. Mom has a curtain up so that the rest of the kitchen does not freeze also. As you know, I like to take my meals in the herb window (even though I am too old now to jump up on the counter to get there). Mom lifts me up from the floor nowadays and then I sneak behind the curtain and chow down.

Gosh, I love my window to the world. I see everything and everyone sees me.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Butterfly Nose

Stella has the most beautiful coloring and a butterfly for a nose.

Many people mistake her for Mini in pictures but Mini is gray.

Sadly, they hate each other so you will never see a picture of them together. V tries and tries to get them to be nice by putting a screen across Stella’s door so they can see each other, but it just ain’t happening.

Stella wants to be alone and that is that.

Wonderful Wednesday: New Holiday Look

Every year Mom, of course, has a furry merry holiday theme going on. This year she added me, Jolie, to the animals. I get to shine next to the spirit of Louise. After a million years of searching, she also found some holiday cats. Last year she ordered one from China and it never came. This year she jumped on it and got the last set in stock and drove many miles to pick it up (do you think she is obsessed). V said they look very ‘made in China’ with their pink ears, but Mom likes them a lot. Now almost everyone is represented (missing one cat at the moment but maybe the baby bear will stand in for Stella). I can’t wait to see what happens inside the house.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Caturday: Reinstated Blog Assistant

Hi. Noel here. Mom said that I haven’t helped her in her office for a very long time. Mostly I have been sleeping on her recliner in the living room or on a dining room chair. But the other day something scared me and I wandered down the long hall and found Mom’s office. That reminded me that I used to spend a lot of time in there helping her do her work and especially create the DogDaz blog.

Mom gave me my old job back as her office assistant, but mostly I can be found sleeping in the guest office chair, which has now forced Jolie to sleep on Louise’s old office pillow on the floor.

Displacing the little dog is a great perk of getting my office job back. She had taken over the guest chair and now it is mine!

I think I will keep this job for a while, or at least until I forget where the office is again.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Memories – Sweet & Painful

Sofie Bear would have been 12 years old yesterday. Here she is with Mr. Nine from a few years back. Nine would have been 12 this coming February. They passed too young at 11 years old. I miss them both a whole lot and I am thankful I got to spend so many years with them.

Memories are a double-edged sword: both sweet and painful at the same time.*

*I am not sure where I heard that quote, or who said it, but it makes a lot of sense.

DogDaz Zoo: Thanksgiving Food For Cats

Dear Noel – I know that my humans are planning a big food celebration tomorrow – they call it Thanksgiving. All they ever give me though is dry kibble. How do I get my human to understand that I can have some leftovers too! – Please help. I am Hungry in Hagerstown

Dear Hungry – Many humans do not understand a cat’s diet. We are obligate carnivores, which means we have to have MEAT to live. But fat on the other paw can make us sick. In the wild, we would eat about 3 or 4 mice a day (yum), depending on our size. But remind them that we are little creatures and our calories per day should be limited to our size. And, we are each different, so tell your human to ask your Vet, since I am not a medicine cat and don’t know what is right for you.

You can have many wonderful COOKED lean proteins:

  • 1 ounce of cooked TURKEY white meat
  • Skinless chicken (MY FAVORITE)
  • Liver
  • Lean beef
  • Lamb
  • Cooked eggs
  • Cooked salmon/tuna
  • Canned fish

Don’t forget your veggies and grains:

  • Raw Pumpkin/squash, peas, and cucumber
  • Cooked carrots, broccoli, green beans
  • Mashed sweet potato
  • Cooked oatmeal

And your fruit:

  • Bananas
  • Blueberries
  • Watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew (no seeded)
  • Peeled apples

But remind them that you cannot eat the following:

  • NO FAT
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Coconut Milk
  • Alcohol
  • Coffee or caffeine
  • Grapes/raisins
  • Seeds
  • RAW fish
  • Bread dough
  • Nuts
  • Chocolate
  • Cooked bones
  • Milk
  • Chives
  • Candy / Gum
  • Artificial sweeteners (Especially XYLITOL)

See this Basic guide 

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and don’t forget to beg for more!

– Queen Noel, the Christmas Cat,

Charles, the Mugwump,

Stella,

Mini Cooper,

Jolie, the Muppet

& Mom.
