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.

IGTV Premiere and a magic portal

I’ve been filling in Safari on my Instagram news, now I want to share it with you.

Getting on the Internet has been so eye opening. Since my last post, I’ve discovered Instagram and started using it to make new friends. Lots of cats hang out there.

I decided to go all in and create an Instagram TV channel. I debuted my first masterpiece. I call it Origin Story. It’s three minutes long and has cool jazz.

My other big news, I discovered a magic portal that lets me go to all kinds of places and sometimes when I get there, I’m huge. It’s a wild ride.

I showed Safari and he loves it! I was hoping to keep it from Lisa, but she figured it out when she saw all the selfies in her phone. Fortunately she is cool with us using it. I need to get my own phone.

So busy lately. I’m exhausted just telling you about it. Have a good one.


The Mouse that Moved

Hi guys. Long time, no blog. I’ve been kind of busy lately, but I wanted to jump on here and give you a mouse update.

I have more evidence that the mice in this house are terrified of me. Remember how I told you that they freeze when I’m around and they don’t move unless I fling them around? Well here’s a lively one and I only ever see it move when Lisa is near it. Clearly it thinks Lisa will somehow protect it, like she protects Safari and me.  Wrong.

I do like that I have a bit more of a challenge chasing it and batting at it. It also jumps pretty high, but it is still no match for me. Lisa keeps saying she wants to record my aerial acrobats, but can’t quite catch it with her phone. Hello. Has she not heard of a GoPro? What kind of a professional cat photographer is she? I should probably research it for her. I’m so getting into the Internet.

Speaking of obsessions, Safari has become convinced there is chicken in this canvas. I might have told him this. 😂😻

Lisa loved watching him hunt for it, but I think she figured out I tricked him. Look at what she made us do for St Patrick’s Day.  I was indignant. If she thinks she can start putting clothes on us she is in for a rude awakening.

Ok. I need go bunny kick something now. Happy Caturday. 

Everyday is Caturday

So I finally made it online. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now. I’m an inside cat, therefore I literally don’t get out much. I’m Zara. I live with my brother, Safari. Our birthday is estimated to be the first of May 2015. No one seems to know our actual birthday. We made our way into a shelter when we were a couple of months old and lived there for over a year until Lisa brought us home. She takes care of us. Basically she’s our mom. Safari and I have no plans to leave here. It’s pretty sweet.

Just because we live inside doesn’t mean we have given up the hunt. You wouldn’t believe how much prey we see every day. Lucky for them, they are protected by the glass window. Safari and I would be all over them if it wasn’t for the glass. Lisa keeps putting food outside and says she is renewing our CatFlix subscription. Her shows are on a very flat box and kind of boring. Maybe if she put some different food out, she would have cool stuff to watch too.

Days here are pretty full. We have are window reality shows, toys, chase games, naps, snacks, cuddle times and house patrol. I like checking everything over every day. You never know when you might find a new smell.

Being adorable 24/7 is pretty easy, but all the other activity can be exhausting.  We like to chill in the evenings. In the winter, we get to hang by the fire. Safari and I are pretty tight. Lisa says we are bonded and I think that’s about right. We groom each other a lot and we always seem to be near each other. I’m basically in charge. 

Lisa is home a lot. She used to go off to a place called “work” but now she doesn’t. Sometimes she sits at her desk and calls that work. I think it’s important to supervise. Mostly, I just like knowing that anytime I jump up on the desk, she stops and pets me for as long as I want. It’s weird having so much power over someone. 

I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you. Lisa is setting up a facebook page for us, so you can be friends with us there too. 

Be well.
