Friday's Feast

Appetizer - How are you today?
Zoey: Elated! I hid from Mommy so well that she had to cancel my v-e-t appointment. Now I'll just have to do it again next Friday.
Mommy: Stressed! I had to cancel Zoey's vet appointment because I couldn't find her. I know that she was in the house because I saw her sleeping on the bed. I went to get her ZoomGroom to brush her before we left so she wouldn't shed quite so much. But when I came back she was gone. I checked all her hiding places but I couldn't find her. After a half-an-hour I gave up and called the vet to reschedule. I guess they are used to it and didn't seem upset at the late cancellation, but I felt terrible that I couldn't keep the appointment. Good thing it was just a check-up and I was able to reschedule for next week.

Soup - Name 3 television shows you watch on a regular basis.
Zoey: I do not watch TV. Cha-Ching and Smoke will occasionally watch tv. Cha-Ching seems to partial to the news. Smoke does not have any preferences.
Mommy: I confess I am tv-aholic. It's on almost all the time I am home. Do they have a 12-step for that? Anyhow, my three most favorites would have to be: Survivor, the original CSI and Desperate Housewives. Eureka, Kitchen Nightmares, Top Chef, NCIS, the Unit, Simpsons, Jeopardy, Dr. Phil, CSI: Miami, Law and Order, Heroes and almost anything on HGTV, DIY or the Food Network (in no particular order) are all close in the running.

Salad - What’s the scariest weather situation you’ve experienced?
Zoey: I do not like thunderstorms, any of them. I hide.
Mommy: When I was about 12, the family took a road trip and ended up in some town in Texas. It was the first time I had ever been there. My sister and I were sleeping on the bed in our van and my parents were sleeping in a tent when the worst storm I've ever seen hit. It poured down rain and the lightning seemed like it was on top of us. Mom and Dad ditched the tent and we all hunkered down in the van. I remember being so scared that I wouldn't touch anything metal for fearing of being struck by lighting. We got up the next morning and the locals acted like the storm was nothing special. We left Texas that day and didn't go back! Well, for several years at least.

Main Course - If you could wake up tomorrow morning in another country, where would you want to be?
Zoey: Hmmm.... maybe Germany so I could visit Dragonheart and see his new brother at the cattery.
Mommy: Is this to stay, or just to visit? If it's to stay, I would pick Canada. I already know the language and I love hockey! If it were just a vacation, I would pick Mexico. My parents go to Puerto Vallerta every February and Matt and I went with this year. It's was a lovely trip but I'm always ready to come home when the two weeks are up.

Dessert: What do you usually wear to sleep?
Zoey: Nothing!
Mommy: My glasses. Ha ha! That's because I almost always fall asleep while watching TV.

That's quite a meal. We live in a small house and we cats are always disappearing. The only way mom can find us is by shaking the temptations bag - we both come running. Mom is a tv junkie too - she even sleeps with the TV on. Says she needs the TV noise to quiet the other noises around the house.

That picture is adorable! Zoey, good going to get out of that vet appointment!!!

Daisy said...

Way to go, Zoey! I might try that trick next time I have an appointment.

We love Top Chef and Kitchen Nightmares, too.

So many things in that post! But we'll just comment on the disappearance act. Well done, Zoey!


I make Mom chase me around the house to catch me to take me to the vet. She's gotten more clever about it recently, but on more than one occasion she had to call and say she'd be late because she hadn't caught me yet! I remember once time I went under the middle of the bed where Mom's arms could not reach me. She got a broom handle to poke me. You can imagine my mood when she shoved me in the PTU.
