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.

2024 – The Year of the Shadow

Shadow napping on the couch.

According to the lunar calendar, Chinese New Year, 2024 is the year of the Wood Dragon. While I certainly don’t want to minimize the importance of this ancient custom, I must respectfully say that in our house, it is the year of the Shadow. Why? Because that little black cat of ours that showed up as a kitten in our driveway a little over 4 years ago, in November 2023, has done something we never thought we’d see: he came onto the couch one morning with me and settled in for a nap!

Celebrating 15 Years with Mia, Peanut, Rolz, and Zeuss at Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles

Happy 15th birthday to Mia, Peanut, Rolz, and Zeuss!

It’s the “kittens” 15th birthday! That’s a biggie! I’m happy and excited for them, but it’s also a bittersweet happiness, as this darn clock of life keeps moving ahead, seemingly at a quicker pace the older I get. I want it to slow down so I can spend more time with them, not less! Fifteen years ago, but it almost seems like yesterday… I will never forget the day they were born. Before that, Dan and I were on pins and needles, waiting for their birth. We could hardly wait to “meet” our newest feline house members and we doted (some might say, obsessively so) on Mama Zoey day and night in anticipation of their arrival. Read more

Peach Fuzz – 2024 Pantone Color of the Year and Why it’s Connected to Cats and Your Health

Beautiful Jazmine in all her peach fuzz glory.

The Pantone Color Institute named its 2024 color of the year, PANTONE 13-1023 “Peach Fuzz,” declaring our need for compassion and human connection in the year ahead. It’s a velvety and soothing tone meant to represent “our desire to nurture ourselves and others” and “whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul.” For Jazmine, our feline diva cloaked in luxurious peachy, fuzzy fur, the announcement was met with some dismay, because to her, every year should be the year of Peach Fuzz. Truth is, she has a valid point. The correlation between the power of peach fuzz and feline fur to enrich one’s mind, body, and soul is a strong one indeed, and one that should not be overlooked.
