Love Hurts

Lalo: I love you, Zoey! (HEADBUTT!!!)

Zoey: Could you love me a little less? My face hurts!

Get Your Own Chair!

I already called dibs on this chair, get your own! (And no, I don't care if this one's already in front of your computer.)

Not His Fault!

Hey look, I posed for you. I even posed real cute. It's not my fault that 1) you only had your iPhone camera on you and 2) the photo is out of focus. Don't ever say I didn't give you nothing!

Mama's Projects

Among other things, Mama's been drawing pictures of us, though she hasn't done it in a while:

Maybe someday she'll actually learn to use colored pencils and do real portraits of us!

Exhibit B

Enough grooming, let's wrestle! (aka, 'Exhibit B - let the records show, Zoey is the one who instigated her own butt kicking')

Queen Zoey

(Zoey is staring longingly towards the public park behind our apartment because a little girl just went in there. Before she went, she pointed at Zoey and exclaimed, 'Pretty kitty!' Zoey started following her.)
Mama: Where do you think you're going, Little Miss?

Zoey: Duh, Mom, I'm going to my adoring public!
(This is the face Zoey makes when she is pleased about something. Incidentally, I text this photo to my Mom and she text back, "Look at that girl(Zoey)'s arrogant pose! She must think she's the Queen of Sheba!' I think my Mom is on to something!)

Happy Birthday Lalo

Here's my birthday boy after a long afternoon walk, caked in grime and dirt and ready for a nap! Thank you, Lalo, for coming into my life, and giving me so much happiness. I love you.

Mama's Grounded!

Zoey: !!!!

Zoey: Okay, I better get outta here before Lalo sees her...

Lalo: Of all the!!! MOTHER!!! *GLARE*

Mama: @#$!

Mama: Hi Baby! I was just--

Lalo: Don't 'hi baby' me! I saw you! You were totally petting that dog!

Lalo: You march yourself home right now, young lady! You are so grounded!

Bird Watching

Zoey: Ooooooooo  O_O

Mama: ?

Zoey: Birds!!!

Mama: Oh.

Zoey: OMG Mama, those people have birds INSIDE their house! How come we don't have that?!

Mama: You mean besides the fact that you would try to murder those birds?

Zoey: ....I don't see what the problem is.

Mama: ..........

Zoey: Dude, I'm a CAT. It's my job to look cute and chase birds! *grumble*

Mondays Are Evil

Lalo: So you steal MY nap chair, acting like you got something mighty important to do...

Lalo: ...and watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer rerun streams?

Lalo: It's a crime, I tell you! A beautiful spring day like this? A rare, beautiful day when you're not hurting so bad?? And me, so handsome and perky?! We should be outside sniffing bushes, woman!

Mama: But Lalo, today's Monday. It's when the yard work people come and scare you half to death with all the noise? (As if on cue, this is exactly the moment when a leaf blower started up right under our window--which is why Lalo's body is moving into 'alert' position--he jumped down from the desk a moment later!)

Easter Duck Hunt

Last year, I decided to host a Easter Duck Hunt for the kitties. I waited until they were on the patio, sunning themselves, and quietly opened a jar of freeze-dried duck breast to hide around the house. I hid a piece on top of the cat tower, and one at the bottom. A big piece under the couch, just within paw's reach, and another small one around the corner. On top of the bookshelf and under the bed, even a few just inside one of the empty bathroom cabinets they like to open/hide in.

I was having a good time walking around the house and emptying the jar's contents into the nooks and crannies. With just a handful left, I was wondering if I should put that in a pile somewhere--the 'mother load,' if you will--when I turned around and found Zoey hot on my trial. That sneaky little brat had been following me around the whole house, munching away! So much for the Easter Duck Hunt! We ended up setting the remaining treats out for a very confused and cautious Lalo while Zoey watched from a distance (held down so she can't steal anymore treats from Lalo)! Below are the evidence photos from last year:

Lalo: All these treats, just for me?? Thanks Mama! *nom* *nom*

Zoey: Noooooooo! Unhand me, brute! What kind of 'Easter Duck Hunt' is this?! It's more like 'Easter Cat Torture!'

Mama's Excuse

Mama's excuse for why she hasn't been able to get online to work on the blog:

Personal Space

Mama: Lalo, have you heard of a little thing called 'personal space'? Cuz you're invading mine right now.

Lalo: You're talking to me about personal space? You, who grabs me from the cat tower for 'Mama face cuddles' and pushes a camera up in my face at any time of the day?

Mama: You're point is well taken, sir. Carry on.
