If you look closely at Pia’s reflection in the window, you might see her face on the back of the SUV parked in the driveway across the street. Pia now thinks all SUVs ought to have her face plastered across the back. That’s all we need.

Quint’s influence – 2014 © Colehaus Cats

My mom says I’m influencing my baby sister. What fun! She’s getting good at tussling and chasing things and bunny kicks. And she takes the gold in afternoon napping. I think my job here is done.

And good thing. Whew! She could wear a Mancat like me out without the extra energy boost I get from Dad’s morning coffee! I’m not slurping here, I swear! I’m just ever so quickly sniffing the roasty aroma. My sister won’t know. I don’t want to influence her to do bad things.

Zuzu On Duty

Always on the look out – 2014 © Colehaus Cats

Zuzu’s not yet been with us a full year (end of August). It’s been fun and interesting to watch her personality come out since she’s no longer raising Niblets. She can be her own cat, answering to, well… almost nobody. She comes and goes from whichever room and napping spot she chooses.

And we’ve noticed a couple of daily routines. Ginger girls are notorious for being very routine driven, and Zuzu’s no different. From 11 a.m. until 2-ish p.m., it’s patrol time! (Zuzu is sitting on her welcome home quilt hand-crafted specifically for her by Stacy at StacyHurt.com)

Zuzu says: Once I got my little ones out from underfoot, it seemed to me this place was in dire need of order, a controlling presence, if you will. No, what this house needs… is an officer in charge! And I’m your girl!

And why not? I’ve proven I can handle discomfort and stress, and I multi-task exceptionally well. Additionally, I… wait a minute…

… do you hear that? Gotta go investigate something.
