It's Been a While

Mama: Aww, my Zoey looks so cute!

Mama: Maybe I'll just take a few shots...

Zoey: *YAWN* Maybe it's my imagination, but I thought I heard the camera shutter clicking away?

Zoey: !!!!!!!!!!!! MMMMMOOOOOOMMMMM!!! How could you?!

Zoey: *ultra quick clean mode* Mom, you need to let me know before you come out of semi-retirement to take pictures! I wasn't ready!! Go take pictures of Lalo while I get ready!

Mama: ..........(I....wasn't planning on taking any more pictures...*cough*)

(Lalo, also thrilled to be a part of this impromptu "photo shoot")

[Mama's note: not sure if it's the fibro or the nerve damage acting up, but my arms have been hurting and tingling a lot more--I can't really do anything anymore. I'm hoping to see the doctor soon, but she's nearly impossible to get a hold of these days. So I don't think I'll be able to take many photos or even use the computer much for a while.]

This Is Why!

Daddy: Lalo, I don't understand why you hate me...

Lalo: I don't *hate* you Dad. See? This is quite nice...


Lalo: This! This is why I hate you!!! (Lalo jumped off the bed a few seconds after this photo.)

Get off my lawn!!!

Lalo: Uh, excuse me?

Zoey: ???

Zoey: Can I help you sir?

Lalo: You most certainly can. You see, this is MY brand new cat scratcher...

Lalo: ...and I will SLUG YOU if you don't get the hell off my property!

Zoey: !!!!

Zoey: Well FINE, if that's how you feel about it!! *jumps off scratcher*

Lalo: Thank you. Now maybe I can get some grooming done...

Lalo: *groom groom*

Zoey: Actually, I'm not fine with it...I don't feel fine with it at all...I wanna sit there too!

Zoey: WANT!! :((((

Zoey: Maybe..maybe if I scratched on the side? Awww yeah, that's the stuff!!!

Lalo: WHAT?! Who said you can use my scratcher?! You're asking for my Paws of Fury!!!

Lalo: I'm the uncontested reigning champion of this beautiful scratcher, and don't you forget it!

Says Who?

Mama: Excuse me, ma'am? Miss Zoey?

Mama: I don't mind you sitting on the desk to watch the birds, but your tail keeps swishing over the keyboards and it's hard to get any work done like that!

Zoey: Sorry, Mama. I just get so excited when I see the birdies flittering about! ^__^

Two Can Play That Game!

Mama: You never use that scratcher..what's going on?

Lalo: Zoey stole my spot on the cat tower, so I'm stealing her favorite spot.

Zoey: What? I needed a change! So sue me!

Lalo: Besides, unlike SOMEBODY, I actually fit nicely on this scratcher!

Zoey: Hey I resent that! I fit just fine, see?!

Mama/Lalo: ..............

Keyboard Love

There's just something about a keyboard that makes Lalo sleepy!

Zoey, cross-eyed?

Every now and then, Zoey looks cross-eyed still (she was cross-eyed as a baby; that's apparently a ragdoll trait and completely normal). Still cute, though!

Managerial Kitties

Mama: Guys? Excuse me, guys??? Could you please get off my desk so I can relax & read my Sunday blogs?

Lalo: You already took like a 2 week hiatus from OUR blog to go on your little trip! You should be working on OUR blog, not reading other ones!

Zoey: Yeah! And we don't want to hear any more excuses about the quality of your camera, blah blah blah! Go borrow Grandpa's!

Eyes of a Huntress

My little bird hunter. She hasn't caught one yet, but she can dream!

Matter of Personality

Cats supposedly loooooooooooove this youtube video of birds feeding on seeds. However, Lalo could care less and Zoey prefers watching the real thing (outside the window).

Zoey's 2 Today

It seems like only yesterday that she was this tiny.

She loved Lalo from the very start, and Lalo--well, Lalo tolerated her for the most part. They played together...

And slept together...

Stalked birds together... (despite the fact that Zoey's too short at this point to even *see* anything!)

And Lalo took Zoey under his wings, teaching her the Way of the Cat. (That's it, lay on the keyboard! Feel free to really use the space!)

And Zoey grew...

And grew...

And grew!!!

But though she caught up to Lalo in size...

Zoey's love for her big brother always remains constant.

Sweet Princess Zoey...

Happy birthday! Here's to hoping that you'll stay just the way you are for many years to come!
