Zeus, 6/30/19

He’s got an itch. He’s gonna scratch it.

As the Senior Cat at the Scalzi Compound, Zeus sees relatively less media attention than the others, particularly Smudge, who is lately the star of the the show. So I thought it would be nice to give him a moment in the spotlight, as it were. Now, mind you, he’s a cat, he doesn’t care. Even so.

And with this post we close up the first half of 2019, which for me was… surprisingly good, and also kind of exhausting. Let’s see how the second half of the year turns out.

  1. Bloody hell.

    When I saw Zeus’ name, today’s date, and his photo, I nearly had a heart attack, thinking he’d died.

    Granted, we just lost our beloved Oliver 10 days ago so I’m a little hyper-vigilant where pets and death are concerned. Otherwise, I may’ve noticed that there was not a date SPAN in the post title.

    Whew. Glad to see the elder statesman is still with us.

  2. What a handsome fellow he is.

    Of course, he knows that already, and cares not for our opinions on the subject.

  3. I had the same response Jill did – whew! I’m glad he’s not only ok, but still quite photogenic. How old is he now?

  4. Yes, I also had at first feared that Zeus had ascended back to Olympus reading the headline. But it’s wonderful seeing a post about him! He should get more of the spotlight! I will sacrifice many catnip mice upon the altar to make this so,

  5. That is a very catlike cat in a very catlike pose. I admire Zeus for the casual superiority of his rulership of the household.

  6. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black part machine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive more than a few miles at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    *waves hi to Zeus*

  7. Good thing I saw this post today instead of Pride Sunday. Otherwise, it would have given me an unnecessary scare.

    Zeus probably prefers getting regular noms than amusing the talking monkeys with picture poses.

  8. Add me to the list of folks who thought he was dead. *whew* He’s a handsome boy, even when scratching.

  9. OMG, I just realized you did that old sitcom trick where the kids are all getting older and aren’t as cute anymore so they add a new younger kid to goose the ratings. Well, played, Sir, well played.
