Mommy told me the story of Angel sis Rocky Ann having a lizard friend on the 2nd floor deck that she use to watch from the sliding glass door. Yesterday I saw her lizard friend and she brought her brother too! So I had 2 lizards to watch on the deck. I had them to myself because Zoey was taking a nap. I was frozen in place as not to scare them and I watched them for a long time. I was sorry that Zoey missed all the fun.
But today, Zoey got to see her first lizard! We were on top of a 3rd floor Mondo watching for birdies when we both spotted a lizard crawling on the tile roof below our window. He actually crawled up to our window. Zoey was so excited. That girl can not sit still nor be quiet. She was bird talking to the lizard! We will be watching our deck again this afternoon for our new friends.
Wishing all our friends a Happy 4th of July!
We want to wish Angel Rocky Ann's Bestest Friend Violet a very HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY!! Cheers for the Red, White & Blue and Purple!!

Zoey and I have this new fun game we play in the morning. It is called "Is it time yet?". We get up around 4am but breakfast isn't served until 5. So we have an hour to play before we eat. First we have to wake up Mommy to let her know we are up. She has carpeted pet steps going up on the side of her bed. First I take my paw and try to get her covers off. Mommy looks at her watch and tells me it isn't time yet. So I run off and play. Then I pop back up on the steps and Mommy tells me we have 30 minutes yet. In a little bit Zoey pops up on the stairs and Mommy says we still have 20 minutes.
This is a very fun game! We do this the whole hour. Zoey and I take turns on the steps. Just before 5am we both show up on the steps and we wait for Mommy's watch alarm to go off because that means IT IS TIME!! Then Mommy asks Zoey if she is hungry and Zoey answers a high pitched "meow"! And Mommy asks me if I'm hungry and I answer a definite "MeoW"! Then we all 3 run down the stairs, Zoey and I faster than Mommy. And we EAT!!
Mommy thinks we are very cute playing this game but she is sure one day she will regret it because once you start this you have to play it every morning. MOL!
I want to ask catsters to please purr really hard for our beautiful little friend Genny (The Generator) who is fighting for her young life.
Of course we always keep our Uncle Tigger and Auntie Mercy in our thoughts because we love them so very much.

Miss Zoey and I get to meet our Godparents for the first time today! Godfather Eric and Godfather Paul are visiting us from Arizona. Usually their doggies Cyane and Bandit come along too but they will be staying back in AZ with a sitter they call Grandma. 4 adults, 2 large dogs and 2 wild kitties is just too much for our size house! Plus Mommy wants us to be able to keep to our routine and be able to leave all our toys out to play with.
I can't wait to show Eric and Paul all my wrestling moves that I do on Zoey. I'm sure they will be impressed. Also Zoey and I plan to show them how fast we race around the house, how high we jump and climb, and how quick we get thru our tunnels. Hopefully we will put on a show for them instead of hide. We'll see!

Zoey and I had Vet appointments this morning. Zoey had to be rechipped so our pawrents took us both in for 6 month appointments to see how we are doing. I had the runs last week but the last 3 days my poopies have been fine. We think it was just a food change reaction. A week ago we did check again for parasites just to make sure but it was negative.
I was going to follow The Purrfect Feather Toy into the bedroom but then I heard Zoey scratching from inside of her carrier and I put on the brakes and ran the other way. Mommy and Daddy looked all over the house for me - twice. We were already late for the appointment. Then Daddy found me. I was hidden in a corner of one of the floors of the Katimanjaro house. It was a very good hiding place. They had even looked there but missed me. (Being black is very helpful!) When I'm scared it is very easy to pick me up so in the carrier I went. Mommy called the Vet and everything was fine because the appointment after our 2 appts was open so we'd have plenty of time.
Dr Tom checked me over and said I looked very healthy. My weight was great at 5.75lbs and I looked lean and muscular. I was shy and didn't purr. But I didn't leave any gifts either and was a very good boy.
I got a pedicure too but that will be our last nail trim as we cannot climb our houses very well now! It will be a long week waiting for the nails to grow so we can climb better. Luckily they grow so fast. Mommy and Daddy haven't been trimming our nails as we climb so much and use the Mondos but thought we'd get a trim while at the Vet. From now on they will let us take care of our own nails.
Time for lunch!

I've gotten to be a big boy. I'm much taller and longer than Zoey. I'm lean with muscles. With my sleek black fur I look like a little panther. I'm really strong. Daddy is impressed by my shoulder muscles. When I give him a high 5 he can feel how strong my arms are. It must be from all the climbing I do on all our houses. I get a good workout daily. Zoey's arms are strong too from all her climbing. She looks like my little sister as she is smaller and shorter. Zoey makes a good pillow and I like to lay my head on her. Mommy loves it when she sees us napping together and I have a strong arm around her. I'm very protective of my little sis.

Zoey and I both love climbing up to the top of The Mondo in the livingroom and sitting there. Zoey learned how to do it first and is really fast. Now I try to beat her up there so I can sit there and she can't. As a solution, Mommy just ordered another Mondo for that room so we can both be on Mondos next to each other. They even have little beds for the tops of them now so we'll be all comfy and have a great view.
Yesterday I pushed Zoey off her favorite window perch so I could sit there. Later Mommy heard a loud noise out in the hall. She looked down and I had jumped from the 3rd floor railing to the stairs below. Mommy could tell by the look on my face, that I had not jumped and by the guilty look on Zoey's face, that she had pushed me!! Luckily I was not hurt, well nothing was hurt but my pride. Later I bit Zoey's ear really hard while we were wrestling. We were calm the rest of the day. We really are best friends, but just get carried away sometimes. Today, I'm watching my back.

Zoey and I felt our first earthquake today! It was far away in Baja, CA- Mexico but it is the longest earthquake our pawrents ever felt. It was a 6.9 (updated to a 7.2) which is strong. When we felt the shaking, we ran! Zoey didn't know where she was running to but I ran behind the couch. Our chandelier was swinging back and forth.
At least there was plenty of room to run behing the couch to hide. Yesterday Mommy had this great idea to pull the sectional away from the wall on all sides so we can run back and forth back there. Daddy thought it sounded really fun for us too. And it has been alot of fun for Zoey and I. There are no cords or anything of course and we can just run from one end to the other. Yes, we have taken control of the house!
Happy Easter Friends!
Thanks to Smudge & Sissel for the Easter Egg and Wishes they just sent me :)

Today I did 2 more things I have never done before so they are my firsts.
Today.... I purred for the very first time!! Mommy was petting me and my engine ramped up and I had a nice strong purr. Before I only chirped. So now both Zoey and I purr. Plus I chirp and Zoey squeeks.
And.... today I climbed to the very top bed of the Katimanjaro!! I did that for the first time after midnight and slept there all night. Zoey slept at the very top roof of the Molly & Friends cat tree. We didn't go to bed till 3am so we were both pooped and let Mommy sleep till 7am. I just climbed the Katimanjaro again and this time Mommy got a picture.
Also Zoey and I would love to be the first to wish our friend Colleen a very happy early 7th birthday!! She is celebrating her birthday this weekend.
Happy Birthday COLLEEN!!

I'm so excited. Today a very cool black cat offered to be my Catster Big Brother!! I was just reading over his story on his page and we sound so much alike. He is 1 years old now and can show me the catster ropes. Of course I said yes, I'd love him to be my big bro!
Meet my Catster Big Brother - FISHER!
Zoey and I have been having so much fun. We love to play and chase and climb. When we get tired we nap and then do it all again. Our favorite game is when Mommy throws our mice, balls and kitty boinks on different places on the sectional couch and we race back and forth to catch them. You should see our couch afterwards! We also like to chase these same things thru our tunnels. And we like to chase the sponge balls and the pingpong balls down all the stairs. And we love to chase each other. Last night around midnight, Zoey joined me on the top Katimanjaro platform! We still haven't been up to the very top bed yet. I'm sure that will be next.
Oh and we love to eat too!
