Tails of Ziggy Tuesday - Episode 1

Hello Friends,

Pumpkin Spice would like to introduce a new series.

Tails of Ziggy, stories and thought about our fur family member.

This is Mr. Ziggy.

I am sure you are wondering why a 'paper crafting' blog would start a series about a cat. I don't have a logical answer, I just feel this little fellow is one of the most entertaining critters i have ever had the pleasure to have as a family member.

The backstory: From as far back as I can remember I had a cat in my life. When I met my hubs I had to find a great new home for my buddy of 10 years. See he is extremely allergic to animals and his allergy symptoms turn into respiratory issues. No fun and simply put - SCARY. We went 10 years fur baby free... then sweet little Pumpkin asked for a kitten. Well, Pumpkin has her daddy in the palm of her hand so it was just a matter of time. He was able to push out the inevitable 3 years, then it was time for Mom (me) to start doing some research. 

Ziggy is a Siberian, also know as a Norwegian Forest Cat, and many people believe that the Siberian is hypoallergenic. We were thrilled!!! Did the fur test, meet the mama cat for an hour, not allergic reaction. SOLD!!!

We meet Mr. Ziggy at 8 weeks and were smitten... he gravitated toward us right away.

Four weeks later, Ziggy came home to us.

He crawled right into Pumpkins lap the first day home with us.  She was so excited.

So onto some of the goofy stories.

Shortly after Mr. Zigler, Ziggy for short, adopted us - he felt that I was in need of his assistance.

Yep, he sits on my desk, crawls in front of the monitor, drinks out of the desk fountain, and if I am not paying enough attention - walks across my keyboard and perches on my shoulder and rubs his wet nose all over my check until I stop what I am doing and give him my undivided attention.


Even when I move my work to the table, he finds a way to 'assist'.

Me trying to work one handed. 

It is a great possibility that he will get to be 20 pounds or more... so I need to start working out my arms to carry him around.

He is a great supervisor.  To the left he is supervising the contractors outside.

Who knew!!! Cats are typically so independent and go take naps in quiet places away from people... not this one.

Plus he SNORES and talks back!!!

Hope you enjoyed the first Tails of Ziggy episode.
