Or Chloe if I can't get it right.....
It just seems to be easier to say Chloe.
I'm going to keep trying.
I am having a very hard time getting over losing my Max.
I have always gotten another pet quickly after a loss.
It seems to help..gives me something else to focus on.
She will never replace him..can't be done.
Anyhow, Zoey is a Siberian.
She belonged to a breeder who "retired" her
after having had two litters.
She is three years old and just the sweetest cat.
Her first excursion from under the love seat (only took two hours and she never went back) was a trip to the kitty litter.
After that she contemplated her next move which seemed to be to explore every inch of that room at least once.
She never made it to the top of the desk..
I said "no" and she got down..
She does seem to know what "no" means most of the time.
Then it was time for a little nap.
It wasn't long (4 hours) before she needed to broaden her horizons.
She squeezed herself through the gate in spite of Mollies being on the other side.
There was no stopping her after that.
The house and all of it's contents are hers !!
I think I have taught her to stay away from the sink and stove part
of the kitchen counter.
When her paws are wet, she tracks much more than Max
did and I don't like kitty tracks on my black stove top..floors either.
You may be wondering about Mollie??
Zoey would give her a little hiss every time she walked by her.
This intimidation lasted about a day and a half when Mollie
decided it was time to play.
That means chase!!!
That sent Zoey under the couch for a few hours.
After that she was out with her little hiss every now and then.
We were all together in the bed in the morning and things were going well.
An hour later Zoey tried to help herself to one of Mollies treats.
That created lots of serious hissing, barking and growling
on both parts ..
Zoey spent a lot of that day under the couch.
One step forward and two back.
I wrote the above about a week ago so I will give you an update.
Things are good..
Zoe will not let Mollie on the bed..when she is under it,
and Mollie comes near, there is a hiss and Mollie retreats.
Otherwise they are OK together as long as there are no quick moves on Mollies part..not quite ready to play yet
but she's getting there.
Rather than write another Zoey post,
I will include pictures in some posts in the future for a bit.
It took a while to get good pictures because she's so busy.
I would be remiss if I didn't thank all of you
for your kind words of sympathy and encouragement
over the loss of my beloved Max.
He will be forever in my heart.
Jazz and Max
