Friday's Feast #152

Mommy's bored so she's agreed to help me with today's post again. Well as long as I don't mention food. So I thought answering the Friday's Feast would be perfect.
Mommy: Zoey you have a cruel streak at times and you forget that I control your Temptations. This isn't Auntie Michele's where Perla will just get them for you...

Zoey: Okay, I'll be good.

Appetizer - On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how much do enjoy watching sports on television?
Zoey: I don't watch sports so I guess that makes it a 1. I do however like the lap time I get when Mommy and Daddy watch them.
Mommy: Depends on the sport. Probably around a 8 for hockey and NASCAR and then down rapidly after that.

Soup - If you could completely memorize any one work of fiction, which one would you pick?
Zoey: The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. First I love rhymes and second well what isn't there to love about a cat that's into everything?
Mommy: Hmmm... That's a tough one. There's some really great books out there. My first instinct was Charles Dicken's a Tale of Two Cities. From "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." through "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known," I think it is certainly one of the most special books I have ever read.

Salad - What is your favorite breakfast food?
Zoey: Beef Temptations of course!
Mommy: Hmmm... I'm not big on breakfast and right now thinking about food isn't so good so let's move on.

Main Course - Name something fun you can do for less than $10.00.
Zoey: Nap!
Mommy: Hmmm... Well Matt and I drove up into the hills to get away from the city lights and watched the Perseid Meteor shower (for those in the Northern Hemisphere, it'll be back on August 13) and that was lots of fun. Of course with the price of gas nowadays, it's close to the wire whether that is less than $10 now.

Dessert - How long does it usually take you to fall asleep?
Zoey: zzzz.....zzzz.....zzzz
Mommy: (whispering) Far too long.

Now that Zoey is napping, I'll finish out this post by announcing that Cha-Ching has happily settled in with the rest of the family. Although he was never ruffled by the hissing and growling front that the furballs and Zoey sometimes put up, he has truly become a furball in the past five days since he was released from his quarantine. The furballs don't hiss at him anymore, unless they are trying to hoard food or a feather toy, and have even started playing with him. He's a little frustrated that they are physically capable of going some places that he can't get to yet, like on top of the bookcases and the plantshelf, but it won't take him long to figure it out and gain the size and strength necessary to keep up. Over the last couple of days we've even caught the first signs of their friendship, like this one with Chewie.
Then today I was able to capture this one of Smoke and Cha-Ching when they came to visit me.
And I snapped this one of them playing on the floor with a shared toy.

Then I caught the the most growly furball, Gandalf, cuddling up to Cha-Ching for a nap on the bed this afternoon.
I haven't got any pictures of Cha-Ching with Zoey yet, but I'll keep my camera on and my fingers crossed. Now I'm tired so I'm going to go nap with Zoey. Have a lovely Friday and weekend. Oh and happy belated birthday to Dragonheart. I meant to post a card on Wednesday, but I was a little under the weather. Zoey wanted to add a picture of Dragonheart but I wouldn't let her because I noticed that the pictures are copyrighted and I never got around to asking for permission. So it's my fault is a little blah for such an lively little mancat!

I'm so happy that there are signs of friendship for Cha Ching and the furballs. Everyone looks so cute in the photos!

DaisyMae Maus said...

Those are great photos ... I didn't think that it would take furry long for efurryone to start sharin' and playin' together ... The naps are just a side benefit! Body heat!


Cheysuli said...

Breakfast! I love breakfast and lunch and dinner and everything else!

Halloween said...

Hi Zoey and all the furballs! Looks like Cha-Ching is happily settled in with your family! The hugs and nose kisses sure show it. Take good care of your mommy when she isn't feeling well. She's a very special person.

Purrs to all, Halloween

Skeeter & LC said...

Cool food! Well, The Big Thing said so, looking over our tops while we typed. We like mousies and ham and shrimsies better. But he said that was cool stuff, so maybe we would like to taste some.

We're open-minded...

Dragonheart said...

I'm sorry to hear your mom wasn't feeling well. :( I hope she's doing better now!

Thank you so much for the belated birthday greetings. :) The copyright on my notice doesn't apply to my friends and fellow catbloggers - it is just so that people know where the photo comes from if someone decides to use it on another site. But thank you for the sentiment and for the lovely graphic. :)

Bad Kitty Cats & Megan said...

NASCAR!!!! We love the races!

Oh what cute pictures. How they grow so big so fast we don't know. Sending our Bad Kitty Purrs and Love and Scritches

Lux said...

Mom says A Tale of Two Cities has been one of her favorites since she was a girl, and she reads it again and again as the years go by.

Good everyone seems to be adjusting to one another!

P.S. Nope, she's not a professional photographer, just a wannabe or something. But she says thanks for asking! :)

Forty Paws said...

That last picture is just too sweet! Cha-ching looks very settled in indeed.


Jake and Bathsheba said...

So sorry that your Mom's been sick--hope she has recovered by now. From the looks of things, Cha-ching appears to be getting along well with everyone. What a cutie! And what a happy family.
