Zoey's Life

Goodbye California!

As you can see from our newest pictures, we are moving to Arizona! Pansy was kind enough to take a picture of Zack and I on our ships of the desert - camels. We are sailing towards AZ during Pirate Month (Pansy's fav month!) We are being guided by Shorty Sean, the Pirate Gecko. Thank you Pansy & Kovo!

In October I am going to become an Aunt and Zack will be an Uncle. Our parents are very excited about becoming Grandparents! Our human brother, Eric, and his boyfriend of 16 years, Paul, are expecting twins. They picked an egg donor and each fathered one of the babies and a sweet surrogate in California is carrying the precious cargo for them. A boy and a girl!

Mom has our cat room all planned in the new Arizona house. It will be different there because there will be no stairs. Here we live in a 3 story house with 4 staircases and we are moving to a bigger house but it is only one story. One of the bedrooms will be a Winnie the Pooh nursery for the Grandbabies. Mom will have fun decorating that room too. She will be babysitting for the twins during the day while Eric and Paul work. And the tall cat trees we have will be super important for us with babies in the house. We will also have another room with more cat furniture where the babies won't be allowed so we can have our safe space.

We are pretty much packed and ready. Dad and Eric are taking a separate truck early full of all our packed boxes. Then we are moving ourselves by car on Friday, Sept 13. Our furniture will arrive the following Tuesday. So we will have all our boxes to unpack while we wait for the furniture to arrive.

We will miss Irvine. But Mom and Dad are excited to move back to Arizona. They lived in Tucson for about 15 years. We will live only 2 miles away from Eric and Paul. Dad's company is letting him do his same job from Phoenix. That worked out so well.

We hope that someday soon Arizona will follow other states and make Gay Marriage legal so Eric and Paul and their babies can be a family in every sense of the word.

Wishing everycat the best. Miss you!

Thanks Newman. We can't wait to see a whole new place. It will be so fun to look out the windows and see what we can see!

Watch for our camels in AZ!

Hi Zack!

We are so excited for you! I think you will love your new house. And babies are so exciting! Your mom will make sure that you and Zoey will srill get plenty of attention.

Congratulations to Eric and Paul! We know they will be great dads. The babies will have plenty of love and support and are lucky to have a loving family. We hope that same sex marriage becomes legal in all states because love shouldn't have legal limits. :)

Purrs,
Tiger and Tiny

I meant to say Hi Zoey! I thought I was on Zack's page!

Hi Tiger and Tiny and thank you!

Yes these will be two lucky and very loved babies. And I agree that we want gay marriage to be legal in ALL states too. People on all sides have been so supportive of Eric and Paul. It has been really great!

You can say hi to Zack on my page. LOL!

Happy Labor Day Newman, Tiger and Tiny. Take the day off and relax!

Mom and the husband visited Tucson a few years ago and had a great time. I've never been anywhere beyond the front porch.

Hi Kitties and thanks for stopping by!

Mietzi Katze, we had different moving companies come to give us quotes and one lady had no idea what to do with the cat furniture and how to safely move it. She was off our list right right away! The estimater we went with has 21 cats and 5 dogs. He lives on a farm. I think we have more cat furniture than human furniture!

Thanks Kibbles! I will remind mom to put up pictures once we are settled in. She will take one of us and the babies too but only if we are interested. Eric and Paul know another gay couple that recently had twins and they have 2 cats, one loves to be around the babies and the other just totally ignores them.

Thanks Samhain, Sleeper, Fearless, Owl, Socks and all the rest of the Ferals!!!!

Monster that is the safe place for you to be. Our parents have been overly cautious with our new house doing things so hopefully we can't run out of the house. We don't even get to go on the front porch here. Coyotes are both in Irvine and Phoenix!

How exciting a new home and babies too! Good luck with your Move...be safe!!!

My Mom and Dad are thinking about relocating to Arizona too. Dad will be retiring soon so they want to find a place that isn't so expensive to live like California is...Let us know how your move went and how you like living there...

Hugs to you all...

Hi Xena, Arizona is the purrfect place to retire. We highly recommend Tucson as that is the only place we have actually lived. Very laid back city and beautiful. We are finding with this move that everything is less expensive in AZ compared to CA. You get so much more for your money in housing. Dad said that food and Internet are cheaper. Even without the grandbabies on the way, mom and dad were planning on moving back at some point and for dad to retire there also.

I hope you move to AZ someday too!

Hugs back!

One of our neighbors asked us if we were going to change our moving date as it was on a Friday the 13th. LOL!!

Good luck....It is a warm state so my parents would never move there plus they love the ocean. Hope that the move goes well.....

Well Zoey we sure know you will be a great Aunt and Zack will be a wonderful uncle. We are so excited for the new arrivals! How has the move been? Are you used to the new place yet? Was the move scary? I hope all is well! Miss you from Germany!

Why is everycat moving to Arizona? Is it because Newman lives there? I wish we would move to AZ too. It's gonna be in the 20s in Iowa. I hope your move went well or will go well Zack and Zoey. Not sure if you're on the way or there already. I hope the moving truck didn't get lost and your precious purrniture arrived undamaged.
