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.
Mini is in the house if you are looking for cat #3. Who knew that the Cat Village would be such a big hit? There are more adventures and head battings then I have seen in years. No one seems to go in the hammock at the bottom yet. Mini makes me a little nervous on those small, no-sided, platforms, as she has taken to chasing her tail and then falling off from one to another. Good things cats have great balance. The thing is 7 feet tall.
Well, actually, he is on top of the cat tree in the living room. Whoever is up there seems to take great pride in the position (for as long as it lasts). I don’t know where he got that scratch on this nose (it looks like a dot in this picture), but I assume it was from Mini Cooper. They were probably fighting over just this thing: Who gets to be king/queen of the tree? Here at the DogDazCats2 Zoo, watching the cats play ‘king of the hill’ is a constant form of amusement for the humans.
Nine is such a handsome guy. Love you, Niney!!!!
Hope you have a warm Sunday!
This is part of the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop. Thanks to Dachshund Nola and Sugar for hosting.
Gertrude and Cuddles were not friends. Cuddles, unlike her name, wasn’t really friends with anyone. She mostly lived in my bedroom and would paw-smack anyone who got too close to the bed
In this rare photo moment in winter 2006, I caught Gert and Cuddie looking out the back door at the birds flitting in the bird bath on the deck. Somehow a common enemy brought them together.
Gertrude passed in 2007 and Cuddles in 2010.
We seal that backdoor in the winter to keep the draft out. The little solar gnome makes sure that we can see our way down the hall at night with his flickering light. I guess you could say that the cats were ‘Hanging with their ‘Nomie.’
Oh Gosh! Mini Cooper just loves her brother, Nine (she is number 11). They are waiting for a skink to run by on the windowsill. This may look like a black a white picture but it isn’t – when you have a diluted torte and a gray and white Tom you get this effect. One of the girls took this on their iphone.
What left you wordless today?
This is a Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop. Thanks to BlogPaws for the hop. Head over there and see what they are blogging about.
I know you weren’t thinking that Mini Cooper’s first birthday was any different than any other day at the zoo. She is always starting something, even on her special day. Nine is such a good boy because he always lets his little sister think she has won the wrestling match. I am sure he could destroy her if he cared to. Glad that he doesn’t. If you watch to the end you will see who the real instigator is…. can you guess?
What mischief did you get into today?

Mini Cooper decided that Noel’s tail would be a good toy to play with while I was cooking Thanksgiving dinner.
Sometimes I think that kitten has a death wish. Actually, Noel was pretty patient with her. I am amazed how the older cats (well at least Nine and Noel) know she is a baby and tolerate crazy behavior. In a few months, they will no longer allow her to get away with things. I actually think Noel was kind of purposely playing with her. Do you think she would do that?
