Thank you new friends for the very warm Catster Welcome. I can't believe all the changes in Zack and my life in just 1 week. Thank you for all the friend invites, giftees and comments. Angel Rocky Ann sure had some wonderful best friends and now we are happy to be friends with you too.
We are having fun settling in our new home. We have taken over the master bedroom. That is our room right now with all our things in there. Of course we are now the masters of the house.
At first we would hide under the bed and come out to eat, use the litter box and play. Then we would run right back under there. Our new Mommy and Daddy wanted to bond with us. So they took the bed frame off the bed and put the mattresses on the floor. They are high mattresses so we have pet steps going up there on all sides. You would have laughed watching them try to catch me. I am very fast! And little, so I can hide many places they never even thought of. But now with no bed to hide under, we are much more social and love Daddy and Mommy coming in to lay on the bed with us and hold us and play with us. Towels and blankets fill in any place they think I might hide. I found 2 new ones last night and those are filled in now too.
I am very smart. They had a tall pet gate at the door and a large sofa cushion behind it so they could peek in on us. I figured out at 4:30 this morning how to end up at the top of the pet door. Daddy came up the stairs and I ran back into the bedroom. I think if I would have gotten out, they would still be looking for me. MOL!! Now the door remains closed.
Zack and I want to thank Courtney at Cat Connection Rescue Network in Fountain Valley, CA for rescuing us and sending us home with our new Mommy and Daddy.

The sun feels good. I'm laying so cute on my back in the Hello Kitty nest doing some sunbathing. It feels very nice and warm on my tummy.
My brother Zack wrote in his diary how he doesn't like Wellness kitten canned food. Well, I do! When I go to the food dishes and the dry kibble is out there, I just have to look at Mommy and she goes down to the kitchen and gets me a can of my food. I don't like the dry at all anymore - no Iams or Wellness. We'll see what I think of the Chicken Soup Kitten food. I'm trying to eat more as I'm a nibbler and Zack is a gobbler. He is a little bigger than me. I have to catch up.
When Zack gets wild and wants to wrestle but I'm done wrestling, I give him a paw to the face. And if that doesn't work, I run near Mommy.
Thanks again friends for all the giftees and friend invites and comments. You made Zack and I feel right at home.

Mommy finally heard my voice today when I let out a little meow to her. Before this I didn't purr or meow. Maybe just a little hiss or growl the first day. Yes, I have a very cute growl. My voice was never lost, I just had nothing to say until now!
My brother Zack has a cute squeak sound he makes when he is playing. He sounds a little like a bird. Otherwise he doesn't purr or meow either. We are both very quiet!

I surprised Mommy yesterday by purring! It was my first time. I have a strong purr engine now. Food got me purring. Mommy has had trouble finding something that I like to eat. I didn't like the Iams Kitten that the rescue was feeding me. Wellness dry was totally ignored. Wellness canned I liked for a bit but still wasn't eating much of and we think that irritated our tummys.
When we went to the Vet yesterday for our first appt (see Zack's diary) Dr. Tom gave me some treats and boy, did I wolf those down. But I lost a little weight on the scale as I've just not been eating enough. So Daddy and Mommy went and got different dry foods to let me see if any of the kibble interested me. Then Mommy took me in her bathroom and she put one in front of me at a time. I purred that I liked the Purina Pro Plan Selects Chicken & Brown Rice Formula in the dry and canned please. I like the canned best. I seem to be eating better by myself so we will continue that for awhile until I gain some weight. I also like Mommy to pet me while I eat. I purr the whole time. And yes, they got me some of those treats!

Last Saturday I had the FELV/FIV test and Monday we dropped off some of our poopies for testing. I'm very happy to say that I am negative on the FELV/FIV. We'll get tested again around 6 months or so.
Now the poopies are another story. And I know how catsters love poopie stories. Well mine seems to have a bug. So we both are being treated for coccidia. Today our Daddy became Dr. Dad. He is very quick with that pill popper. We've heard that he has had alot of practice. So we'll be seeing Dr. Dad for 10 days. This helps make sense of our loose poops, vomiting and me with the loss of appetite. I guess us being stressed out makes the bugs even worse.
Now I no longer care for the Pro Plan Select food. I think Mommy is getting the hint that I'm a bit fussy. Plus with the bug, I wasn't feeling well. Our Vet had mentioned Evo kitten and cat food and our Dogma down the street sells it. So Mommy picked up a few cans. That is the new food I love! For now :) It is the most I've eaten of any of the foods I've tried. Mommy loves the consistency. And Zack has been getting a little bit a few times and he loves it too. So Mommy hopes this sticks and before long maybe this will be our food.
Already today we've been feeling better. I think it is because we are feeling more at home and not stressed. We now have pretty much run of the house and its lot of fun. We love running up and down the stairs. And all that running makes us more hungry so we are eating more. Even our poopies looked alot better today and that is before the medicine!

Zack and I are doing really well. We are enjoying eating. Mommy doesn't even have to sit with me and pet me while I eat anymore. Zack and I are eating the same foods so we can now eat together. We are taking our pills good even if sometimes we give a little chase beforehand. Can't make it too easy for Dr. Dad!
Daddy asked Mommy yesterday if she noticed the way I walk around. And Mommy said, you mean with an attitude? That is exactly what Daddy meant. Mommy then explained that I'm walking around with tortitude!
Mommy was worried that Zack was a little rough with me with his wrestling. But then she started noticing that I'm the one that alot of times is the instigator. I seem to hold my own pretty good with the bigger Zack. You know what time we love to play? 2am! Mommy is happy that we have each other to chase around and play with. Next Vet visit, we have to figure out when Zack's birthday is as the Vet thought he was 3 weeks older than me. If the Vet is pretty positive we aren't from the same litter, it would be more fun to have different birthdays.
Our Godparents, Godfather Eric and Godfather Paul, bought Mommy and Daddy and us a video camera!! My pawrents have never had one before so it will be fun to use. Thanks Godfathers!!

No, Zack and I aren't starting our own clothing line. Mommy was in Dogma talking to the salesperson and she asked what our names were. When Mommy told her that we were Zack and Zoey, she went and got a pet outfit off the rack that was from the Zack and Zoey pet clothing line. Mommy thought that was so cute!! But we won't be wearing any clothes. Mommy already promised us that she won't be dressing us up at all. We will just be looking like cats. The only thing we will be wearing is our little pet collars with a pink "Z" tag for me and a blue "Z" tag for Zack whenever we go for a ride to the Vet or anywhere else.
I wore my pink "Z" name tag today because Zack and I went to the Vet. We are both so good. We left no accidents at the Vet or in the carrier. I'm more social at the Vet than Zack is. Of course Dr. Tom thinks I'm adorable. I was purring while he was checking my heartbeat! I gained more than a pound so now I weigh 3lbs even. We are going to cut back on the food a little bit as we gained that pretty fast.
Zack IS my brother. I'm so glad that my teeth caught up to Zack's and it is now thought that we are truly litter siblings. We are 15 weeks old today.
It has been a tiring day so we've been napping lots. Right now we are sleeping in blanket nests on top of the bed.

Zack and I got a package in the mail today from our Auntie Mercy. She sent us each our very own tunnel to play in!! Mercy even picked out special colors for us. She sent me a pink/orange one and Zack a blue/green one. They are SO cute!! They are the purrfect size for us and have a window and everything. We had a really long play session earlier all thru the house and we are now napping. We can't wait to get up to play in our new fun tunnels.
Thank you so much Auntie Mercy!! And thank you for keeping an eye on us for Angel RA. I know she would be really impressed with your shopping choices.
