Hi everybuddy! I’m enjoying the early morning sun. Honestly, I might need a pair of sunglasses if it gets any brighter. *squinting eyes*

Zoey in the sun

About a week or so ago, our friend Cathy Keisha from Stunning Keisha posted about a new meme that was making its way around the internets. You answer a bunch of questions about yourself so others can get to know you better. I decided to give it a whirl. Here goes…

My name is:  Zoey. With a Y. I know some people spell it without the Y…but I definitely prefer the Y.
My age when adopted:  Well, first of all, I wasn’t exactly adopted. I was a stray cat hanging around the big guy’s business and after about 6 months fending for myself, I got caught and brought to the island to live. I was estimated to be around 9-10 months old at the time. Did you know that at first these humans didn’t think they were going to keep me? The lady with the yellow hair tried to find a rescue or foster to take me…but she had no luck…every place was full. So I got to stay.
My nicknames are:  Sweet Pea, Princess, Squeaker…or the one I’m called most often, Peanut.
My breed is:  I guess you would call me a Domestic Long Hair. Purrsonally, I prefer Domestic Long Hair Goddess.
My main color is:  Brown…but I’m a Torbie which means I’m like a tortoise shell cat with stripes.
My age is:  I’m just about 13 years old now.
My favorite human food is:  Y’know…I’m not a fan of human food. Oh, I wouldn’t pass up a piece of cooked chicken or turkey, but for the most part I like my regular food.
My biggest fear is:  Humans. Strange humans scare me!
My favorite thing(s) to do:  I like to sit in the window and be on neighborhood watch. You’d be amazed at the things you see…’specially around 4 in the morning.
Where do I sleep?  I sleep in a few different places…my hidey hole, my cube, and on the bed…sometimes under the covers.
Do I like car rides?  NO!
Do I purr?  When I was younger, I didn’t purr much. Now I purr a lot. But I have a very quiet purr.
Do I snore? No way! I don’t snore…and don’t let anyone tell you I do!

So…did you learn anything new about me? Why don’t you play along too so we can learn more about you!

  1. We loved learning more about you, Zoey!

  2. I learned a lot, Peanut. 🙂 I guess this is one time that full shelters was a good thing.

    • They could have put me in a shelter but they knew given my scared nature and lack of socialization, I probably wouldn’t have survived in a shelter. They were looking for a foster home for me but no one had room. Interestingly, a couple months after I came to live here, one of the rescues contacted the lady with the yellow hair to say they had a foster available for me. But by that time the humans had fallen for me and decided to keep me.

  3. We liked learning more about you Zoey.
    You remind us of our big brothers Treasure and JJ. We miss then.
    You are a goddess too!
    We are really happy you got a wonderful and safe place to live Zoey 🙂

  30. Thanks for playing Zoey! I learned a lot about you. What cat could turn down chicken? Maybe if you come from Trout Town you could. I didn’t know your age. You haven’t aged a bit since we first met about 9 years ago.

  31. How fun to learn more about you, Zoey!

  32. We enjoyed learning more about you, Zoey ! Purrs

  33. No luck? We would say the lady with the yellow hair was the luckiest lady in the whole world to get to keep you, Zoey!

    Tama also has gotten much more inro purring with the passing years!

  34. So good to get to know you Zoey, I’m glad you did this. I’ve never heard of a Torbie before, but I’m glad there is a name for such unusually beautiful kitties like yourself.

  35. You definitely are a goddess, but we already knew that. We thought, however, that you were much younger. We like the nickname, Peanut. We definitely didn’t know about that.

  36. We have known you a while. Some answers were not surprises. MOL! But there were a couple surprises.

  37. We enjoyed learning more about you, Zoey with a y! 🙂
