Semi-Wordless Wednesday: BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Announcement and What Color is My Cat?


This was the dress image I saw courtesy of Tumblr. No matter which way I look, the dress is white and gold (or possibly a lavender and gold). What color do you see?

Like a gazillion other people, I too have been caught in the recent controversy of “what color is that dress – black and blue or white and gold?” From the image I saw, to me the dress is 100%, hands-down, clearly white and gold. However, I happened to catch The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday and she had the owner of the dress on the show, wearing the actual dress, and it was 100%, hands-down, clearly black and blue. I’ve always been pretty good with colors, so all of this got me to thinking… just what color is my cat Jazmine? Is she golden-orange and white or something else? What do you all see??


I always thought Jazmine was a pretty ginger and white cat… Maybe all this time I was wrong and she really is black and blue! What do you all think?

BEST-CAT-BLOG-n2n2015-FINALISTbadgeAs most of us in the cat blogosphere know, Wednesday’s are reserved for light fare – typically a couple of pictures and very few words. When I had written my post for today it was created in that tone – just something fun and humorous, complimented by a stunning picture of my cat Jazmine. I had no idea BlogPaws would be announcing their nominations for the Nose-to-Nose Social Media Awards, so you can imagine my surprise when I found out Zee and Zoey’s blog was nominated in the category of “Best Cat Blog.” But that’s what cat blogging is all about at Zee and Zoey’s – from the silly to serious and everything in-between, we try our best to be a blog that embraces our passion, love, and dedication to all things cat related.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank everyone for their support over the years – your friendship and readership means the world to me. And special congratulations to my peers, friends, and colleagues who have also been honored with a nomination – please click here for the list of nominees and I can’t wait to see you all at BlogPaws this May!


Caturday’s Meow Mix Roundup!

It’s been a busy and full week so I thought I’d share a meow-mix smorgasbord of stuff today for our Caturday edition at Zee and Zoey’s.

The week began with some pawsome news for Dan and I – thanks to my oldest son, Chris, we are grandparents again!! Yup – you heard me right – a stray cat happened his way a couple of weeks ago and after determining she was homeless, he brought her into his two-dog home as a permanent family member! Read more


Photobombing Cats…

While Zoey is my leopard inspired soul-mate kitty, having our picture taken together is not her thing. She will nap on my outstretched legs religiously every night when I finally step away from my computer to relax for the night on the couch and she likes to sleep next to me when I go to bed. Snuggling, picking her up, and hugging, however, are BIG no-no’s to her. So the other day when I saw that she was napping on the floor in the hallway and the lighting was ever-so-perfect, I asked Dan to grab a picture of me sitting next to her because I knew that would be as good as it gets with her.

Need I remind you I have seven cats? What was I thinking? Naturally the moment I sat down, it became a feline excursion in photobombing as led by none other than our Miss Photogenic, Jazmine. Oh well… I guess I sort of have a picture of Zoey and I together! So how does it go in your house when the camera comes out? Any photobombing cats in your bunch?


It started out innocent enough… a picture of me with Zoey was all I really wanted… Enter stage right, the orange blur…


And just like that, Jazmine is sitting pretty, picture purr-fect in the background and joining the photobomb session are Zee and Rolz… Oh well… I gotta admit I do like the picture and there is nothing better than being surrounded by so much kitty love!

Happy Wednesday all and thanks for dropping by!


Caturday Cats – Mama’s Little Helpers

It’s been another long and hectic week, but luckily I have had the help of my kitties along the way. Here are the pictures to prove it:


Thursday night is always grocery shopping night at our house. Jazmine takes her self-appointed job of inspecting the bags for treats very seriously. Being that I am a vegetarian, she is clearly not impressed with my salad stuff. But please don’t fret… yes… she got her treats! How else would I be able to get on with the night if I didn’t buy kitty treats!?


Friday was tax day and I had to prepare paperwork for the accountant. I turned my back for a quick second and the cats jumped in to help out!


Mia and Rolz help me with the clean laundry. By napping on the warm clothes, it prolongs the task at hand for me – putting everything away!


Zee knows how busy I am, so rather than me having to take all of the cat toys out of their storage baskets, Zee takes them out and puts them on the floor where they belong for me…


The cats help me enjoy the Valentine’s flowers I got last week from my son and his partner. How do they do that? By forcing me to put them (the flowers) behind closed doors where I go and visit them on occasion since the cats insist on trying to eat them which is dangerous…

How about you? Do your cats find ways to help you out? Bless their sweet little souls… I wouldn’t want it any other way!

Happy Caturday all!


Semi-Wordless Wednesday: Is it Spring Yet?


Jazmine asks the question we’re all wondering…

Oh Jazmine…if only it were…It’s hard to believe that here it is, almost the end of February and over 68 million people are being affected by the ravages of winter. Or at least that’s what I think the number is – I heard Lester Holt say that on the news the other night, but being that he hasn’t had a day off since Brian Williams has been suspended, I’m not sure how clear his memory is either. But, in all fairness to both gentleman, I barely remember what I ate for dinner yesterday or what day of the week it is for that matter.

What I do know is that I’m pretty sure most of the country has had enough of the snow and is looking forward to clear roads and warmer days. Until that happens, enjoy this picture of my kitties snuggling on our favorite winter blanket, “Big Red” (yes, it even gets cold in Florida).


Zee, Kizmet, Mia, and Rolz keeping warm!

Happy Wednesday all!
