Zara Q&A

Hi friends. I haven’t updated the blog in a long time. My bad. I’ve been super busy hunting, napping cuddling, playing, and of course feasting on chicken. I play hard and nap hard.

~ Safari watching me sleep ~

I thought I’d share some answers to some of the questions we get asked a lot. Here goes …

Yes, Safari is my brother. We are litter mates. He’s a boy and I’m a girl. I am bigger than he is and I’m the one in charge. Lisa panicked for about a second or two thinking she’d never be able to tell us apart when she brought us home, but now she never confuses us. We get along really well and sometimes we hold hands when we cuddle.

Yes, we chase each other and play fight. It doesn’t last long and we never hurt each other. Sometimes I feel the need to remind Safari that I’m in charge and I will boot him from where he is sitting and take his spot. I also like to steal Lisa’s spot when she gets up. Basically, everyone gives into me.

We are American short hair tabby cats. Lisa calls us tigers, and that suits us. Tabby is not a breed of domestic cats, but rather a type of marking and those markings can happen no matter the color of fur. Tabby kitties have an M type of pattern on the forehead and stripes around the eyes, on the face and elsewhere on the body.

We love chicken. It’s our favorite, along with turkey. We eat both crunchy kibble and the wet food. Lisa has been trying to back off on the crunchy treats, but we play the cute card pretty hard and get our way.

We don’t sleep together every day, but we do groom each other several times a day, we give each other nose kisses and head rubs and often sit next to each other. Sometimes we nap together.

I sleep more than Safari, but when I am awake I am usually doing something. Speaking of naps, time for another one.
