Caturday: On Being Mini

Ahh! to be Mini Cooper the youngest member of the Zoo. She is so precious. Very much like a dog, running with the pack and demanding attention, yet so beautifully cat too. She is one fearless cat and that sometimes can serve her well and at others scares the heck out of me. She is always loving on the other animals and humans, licking dog ears, and kneading human thighs. Sometimes I wonder where all those little scabs on my legs are from and then I remember Mini was sitting on my lap last night. Every cat that has blessed my family has been unique, but this one, well she is just so…. Mini Cooper.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Monday Mischief: Alas, Poor Yorick, He Was Allergic

No animals were hurt in the making of this Halloween murder scene.

We have so much fun at Halloween. Maybe because it is just a fun time, no need to cook and bake and worry about family or presents or going to visit people. Here at the zoo, we love the fall and everything that comes with it. Though it is the dying off of the crops and the going to sleep of the plants and the earth, it is a magic time for us. We really enjoy being wrapped in layers and having a crackling fire to warm our bones. Though the cold has started to affect us all, because we are not puppies anymore, it still holds a freshness that makes us feel alive.

Harvest time makes me feel thankful for having food on my table and being able to provide for my family; flesh and fur and fins.  Have you heard about the Teal Pumpkin Project? It helps raise awareness for people who have food allergies (like me) so that everyone can partake in Halloween. Have you ever thought about the child with peanut or milk allergies who can’t participate? Please think about having toys or alternative treats. If you want more information about the Teal Pumpkin Project go to FARE – Food Allergy Research & Education. We give out eyeballs and spiders and other fun things in a separate bucket from regular candy. I give the goblins a choice when they come to the door.

We are ready for mischief – Are you?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Breakfast Helper

Noel is every present when I am eating at the kitchen table. For some reason, she thinks there is some food in it for her. Sorry NoNo but Mom is having her morning coffee and that is just not good for you.

Monday Mischief: September Review

Monday Mischief: September Review

September seemed like a very Cat month in pictures.

It was very hot most of the month and it was the driest September on record. Seems like Maryland is turning into Florida. Still in the 90’s even now in October. Maybe I will put the dogs in bikinis for Halloween.

Have you picked your costume yet?

Caturday: Dear Noel – Why Do I Box?

Dear Noel,

Why is it that I cannot resist jumping into a box, any box, no matter what the size. I feel obsessed with anything box. Is this normal? Should I seek professional help?

Sincerely, Binky

————————-

Dear Binky, Your obsession with boxes is absolutely cat-normal. We all do. I love a good box. A box makes me feel safe and is comfy and cozy.  A good box gives me a great vantage point from which to jump out at my brother or sister cats, and even at those pesky dogs (if I wasn’t afraid Sofie would eat me). In a deep box, no one can crawl up behind me. As you can see in this video, boxes are a natural part of being feline. Just relax and enjoy your obsession. Your friend, Noel

I cannot imagine a life without cats!
