Zeus update.....

Zeus has come home for the last time as far as I am concerned. He is not a happy cat when he is not here at the store so I don't plan to try to adopt him out again. This is his home and this is where he is happiest so here he stays. To me it is just too much like rejection to have someone take him and then bring him back. He may not think so but I do and I don't want to upset him. :)

He won't even be going home with me on weekends anymore. I'll just come in a time or two each day and spend some time with him. He is usually such a loving cat and always wants to be on my lap or near to me. When I had him at home in my embroidery shop he would not sit on my lap when I would go out to spend time with him. He would jump up on my lap, meow loudly, and then jump down and get in his carrier and look at me as if to say, "Are we going back to the store/my home now?"

He is doing ok being left out to have free roam of the store. He doesn't tear things up or potty in the floor, things he did before he was neutered. I try to keep a few toys that I only give to him of an evening when we are closing. That way they are new and interesting to him.

I have been making bandanas to sell in the store and yesterday I decided to put one on Zeus. It is a red/white/blue fabric and it looks so cute on him. He doesn't seem to mind it either.

I had to take him to the vet yesterday. He had really crusty yucky ears. I never gave a thought to ear mites as I had had a white cat years ago that had the same looking ears and the vet checked her for ear mites and it was only dirt. When Zeus began shaking his head and digging at his ears I decided it was time to take him and have them checked out. He did have ear mites, they put meds in and he is ok now.
They all thought he looked so cute with his little bandana on. What do you think?

Can you say tired?

My girls, bless their hearts, have gotten me into Zumba.
It is a lot of fun and I am having a ball doing it, BUT it is a real workout. For a solid hour you are moving, jumping, dancing, spinning, and sweating.
We have been going for 2 weeks now (4 days total) and I am beginning to learn the moves. Some of them I just can't do, but I give it my best. I know I am a sight to behold while trying to do some of it, but then, I am not alone in that.
There are all ages who come. We have little girls who look to be about 6 or so and some older ladies who I will not try to guess their ages, but I know they are older than I am. :)
I need to find me a belly dance hip scarf and some really comfortable and light weight dance shoes. Maybe I can find them before next Monday. We go on Mondays and Wednesdays. I know I can't find them before tomorrow night.
Well, the hip scarves can be bought online, but shoes I HAVE to try on first. Most of the dance shoes I have looked at online say to buy 1 to 2 sizes bigger than you wear. Not even going to try that online.
