We're Here For You, Mom!

Lalo: Can't sleep again, Mama?
Mama: Um, yeah. I can't seem to stretch out my legs. 
Lalo: Huh. Maybe you should get that checked out.
Mama: ....yeah, maybe.
Zoey: Or maybe stop talking (and definitely stop whipping out the iPhone for photos) and actually try to sleep, like some of us!

Mama's Misplaced Priorities're back to using your old crappy camera again eh? Yeah, I can totally tell, Mom. I know the big DSLR was hurting your shoulders & arms, but you really should've kept it...artists are *supposed* to suffer for their art! Ah well...I guess I'll just have to make up for it with my stunning cute looks!

Deep Thoughts

What you see: a graceful feline looking up pensively, lost in thought. Is he remembering his younger days as a carefree kitten? Perhaps lamenting the life of a mouser--graceful, silent, deadly--a life he never had?

What he's actually thinking: Should I poop on the floor tonight as a surprise for Daddy?

Business Hours

Zoey: Here, big brother, let me help you with the washing.
Lalo: Hey thanks...but wait, I'm confused. Normally you're either chasing me around like I owe you money, or pouncing on me (and getting your butt kicked *cough*) Why are you being nice?
Zoey: Because I'm not on the clock. I only do that stuff between the hours of 1AM - 5AM. You know, to help Mom & Dad sleep.

As much as I love modeling, sometimes even I need a break...which is why I want to tell you about a special cat named Tiggy.

Tiggy is a stray who's been living in our apartment complex for at least 4-5 years. She's really friendly, so Mama & Daddy tried to adopt her before I was born. But she refused to get anywhere near Lalo (and who can blame her, really?!). They still wanted a companion for Lalo so here I am, but I digress. Early last year Tiggy found a home with an elderly couple, much to my parents' delight. However, she showed up at our door on Christmas day, begging for food. After she had her fill, Daddy walked her back to her house, only to discover that the house was empty (as in, moved out).

Who can say what really happened? Maybe those people abandoned her...but maybe Tiggy refused to move with them because she enjoys her freedom. She's been a 'community cat' all her life: living by the pool, greeting her favorite humans as they come to the pool or gym, escorting them back home for the low, low price of some pettings and food. Rest of the time she is free to come and go as she please. Maybe she didn't want to give that up. Who knows?

What He Doesn't Know

No Mama, no camera, no Zoey...just the sweet, sweet embrace of the sun's warmth, lulling me to sleep!

Zoey Loves Modeling

*sigh* Is it more modeling time?

Lalo: ??
Mama: ?? (note: I got this shot as she literally came in front of Lalo and the camera. lol)
Zoey: Oooo is it modeling time?!

Zoey: Hold on, you guys, let me get my game face on! 
Lalo: Whatever, Mom and her camera are ALL yours! (Maybe now I can nap in peace...)

Zoey: Sexy

Zoey: Smoldering

Zoey: Bored.
Mama: Bored?
Zoey: Just go with it.

Zoey: Cute!
Mama: That's the one!

Zoey: You should ask Grandpa if you can *permanently borrow* his camera, Mom. It really does wonders for your photos!

Okay Mama, I'll cooperate.

I'll just...I'll just pose like so...

...and then maybe...Zzzzzzz

Mama: Uh...Lalo?
Lalo: (Zzzzz...!!) HUH?! WHAT?!

Oh. It's just you. And that dang camera.

Take a hint, woman! Beat it! Shoo! Scram! Can't you see I got more important work to do, like taking an afternoon nap?!

Silly Question

I don't understand the question, Mama. What do you mean, 'why can't you pose this cute in good background?' I'm this cute, no matter the background!

Look at this handsome face! The piercing blue eyes! The perfectly symmetrical markings! The lovely pink nose! I'm so handsome that I scare myself speechless sometimes.

Mama, Please!

Look, Mama, I know you're eager to play with Grandpa's borrowed camera.

And with such a stunning model, who could blame you? (Between me and that camera, we make even YOUR photos look good! *cough*)

But enough is enough, Ma'am!

It's time for you to FEED this good looking cat, not take more pictures!

She's Pro

Here I am, enjoying the beautiful Arizona February weather...

Did I just hear the camera shutter?! OMG, is that Grandpa's Nikon DSLR?!

I wish you would warn me before you start shooting, Mom, sheesh!

Hold on, let me get my bearing together and...

...there! Another beautiful shot! No need to thank me, Mom. It's all in a day's work for a professional model like myself!

Mama's Slackin'

Excuse me? You are 'hard at work'?! I'm not on your lap, and I'm not being petted and fawned over, so I don't see how that can be true!
