A 4th of July Birthday Wish from Kizmet to America

Kizmet is using my head as a pillow. He lives for these happy moments and so do I.

Kizmet is an “I’m happy if I can be sleeping on my beloved human’s head,” kind of cat. Politics is not his thing to pontificate, nor as his human, is it mine. However, with today the 4th of July, 248 years since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, it’s hard not to think of politics as America ponders its future.  Today is also Kizmet’s 12th birthday and the only wish he has, is the same one I have: regardless of where you stand, or what your beliefs are, we hope we can come together as a race, with compassion, empathy, tolerance, and fairness.

Happy 12th Birthday, Kizmet!

Take care everyone, and be safe. And don’t forget,  the 4th of July can be a rough, scary, and dangerous time for our feline friends. Please visit here for my previous post on how to keep our cats safe and secure during the 4th of July festivities and the hot, summer days.

Kizmet from November, 2012. This was a few days after we adopted him from Pet Supermarket (he had been found, abandoned on the side of the road as a kitten).


Ginger Interruptus – The Unwinding of a Cat Legacy

Blogging in the early days. Always with the help of my feline gang.

I started blogging in October 2010. That’s a long time. Since then, the journey has changed. When I began, it was a small climate of bloggers, newly emerging and growing together, each with our unique voices and personalities. But now, many of us in that initial clowder have quietly stepped aside or changed direction, including me. I have several reasons, but it boils down to three: my ginger cat, Jazmine, an oversaturated amount of cat-related facts and information on the internet, and my day job. Read more

Letting the Fur Down for Mother’s Day!

Since Zoey gave birth to her four kittens on February 12, 2009 (apart from Zeuss, who went on to his forever home with a family friend in Boston), they have been bonded to her like glue. There is rarely a time she is not surrounded by one, two, or all of them.

A Total Eclipse 16th Birthday for Zoey!

Considering that our Zoey, with her meows and yowls that can probably be heard in outer space, they are THAT PIERCINGLY LOUD, it’s no surprise her 16th birthday would fall on a spectacular natural phenomenon: the total eclipse of the sun. Read more

Happy Easter 2024 from Zee and Zoey’s Cat Chronicles

Our lovely model for Easter this year is Jazmine.

Hi everyone and Happy Easter from all of us at Zee and Zoey’s! Remember, it’s okay to Photoshop bunny ears on your cat(s). And some cats might even be tolerant enough to sport a pair of fake bunny ears (not mine!). But it’s not okay to give our kitties any of the goodies associated with Easter, such as chocolates, Easter lilies, cellophane grasses, small toys, and more. These things can pose a significant danger to our feline friends, so it’s best to keep them away from anything that could tempt them.

Love, peace, and purrs.
