Black and White Sunday: Stripes

Mini has taken over Louise’s dog bed now that she is gone. It warms my heart.

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)

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

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?

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!

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?

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.
