Zoey ~ Big and Small ~ Today and Yesterday
A blue point Himalayan (they are part Persian and part Siamese by heritage) . . . and though
thankful for her long and floofy fur it has to be noted that she was not fond of brushing. 
Oh, you could brush her back ... perhaps even get away (albeit briefly) under her chinny-chin-chin,
maybe a swipe or two along that big tail!  But really, get at the mats that formed under her neck,
under her legs, on her sweet belly: NEVER.  So the time would come for a spa visit.  
A spa visit usually meant a "lion cut" (I did not much like that look) but it seemed 
the common and preferred way of grooming.  
Zoey, one might think she was a big girl ~ not so, for most her life, 
just a wisp of a little thing, all of seven-pounds beneath all that fur!

My Song by Zoey

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
Suddenly, I'm not half the cat I used to be.
There's no floofness hanging over me, oh, yesterday came suddenly.
Why it had to go, I don't know - they wouldn't say.
I don't understand - and I long for yesterday.
Yesterday, how I so loved to run and play,
now I need a place to hide away,
yes, I believe in yesterday.

and with sincere apawlogies to John, Paul, George and Ringo 
Zoey is sharing her purrsonal
version of one of the most beautiful songs ever written . . .

It's Thankful Thursday and we were,
for 14 years
Thankful for Zoey!


  1. we bet Sir Paul will love your song Zoe ;O)

  2. I was expecting a blog post but I got mooned.

  3. you rock that song.. I am humming it now... and still with a huge grin on my face from the 7 pound Lion....

  4. Yes, that's a totally purrfect thankful and she really was such a sweetie.

  5. Beautiful Zoey, I love that lion cut! Those lyrics are just too fun. Hugs.

  6. She was a beauty with or without all that fur. I agree that Yesterday is one of the most beautiful songs ever.

    Have a fabulous day, my friend. Big hug and again thank you for all you do. ♥

  7. Zoey was a beautiful girl.XO

  8. We love your version of the song, Zoey, and we think Paul McCartney would too.

  9. Your kitty reminds me of our Larry the Lion an Orange tabby....he lived for 20 happy years with us. He had a "lion " cut every year- sometimes twice! A lovely kitty. Have a great day!

  10. Ha Ha - that is a great song!!! We always enjoyed seeing Lioness Zoey, but her full coat was just so beautiful. Lightning IS a big boy, but Timber is way skinnier under all that fur than one would think.

    Woos, Lightning and Timber

  11. I like Zoey's version of that lovely song. She always looked cute with her lion cut.

  12. Such a beautiful cat, but a lot of work too. We loved the song.

  13. We've had a couple of long hair cats that had the same trouble and regularly needed the same treatment. Excellent rewrite of the song.
