Family

Hi Zeus,

Why isn't Ares on your litter list?

Jeff

Dear Jeff,

What a great question! I'm sure many of my readers have been wondering the same thing. I could probably come up with plenty of witty responses, but they would all be lies. The fact is that he is my brother, for better or for worse. We can choose our friends, but as we all know, we cannot choose our family. Sure, Ares may be annoying, frustrating, and just downright aggravating, but at the end of the day, I do love him.

Lovely post. You're a big guy, Zeus!

Your Friends,
Tommy and The Girls

Parker said...

Leave it to you to be all Zen about this!
I salute you!

Mack said...

And I know he loves his big brudder too!

The Creek Cats said...

Yep, it's true, you cannot choose family.... you just gotta put up with them!

Eric and Flynn said...

Wow! We never thought we'd hear you say that. It takes a big Mancat to admit he really does love his annoying woofie brother. Well done!

Mishkat said...

We were going to make some comment about the Greek pantheon, but mom says she doesn't know enough about it! Anyway, we agree about family. Tasha doesn't like Dobby very much sometimes either, but we think she'd miss him if he weren't here.

Very cute photo of you two today.

The Meezers said...

you do?

Zeus said...

Suzuki: I would have to agree with that statement.

Tom, Tama-Chan, and Sei-Chan: Thank you so much!

Parker: Well, it gets so tiring being upset all the time. I might as well begin to be a bit more mature about the matter.

Mack: You really think so?

The Creek Cats: Does this include putting him up in his pen? If so, I am all for it!

Eric and Flynn: I do try very hard to be a good mancat!

Meezers: I guess I do. I try very hard to deal with this puppy's behavior, but over time, I have come to accept that fact that he is not going anywhere. It's time for me to move forward...

Ruby Bleu said...

Zeus,
What a nice post and adorable picture. Question, I know the blog is called 'The Zeus Excuse' but will you ever let Ares do a guest post??? Inquiring minds want to know!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Zeus said...

Ruby: It's funny you should ask because the human pet has been working on this. As I type this, she is scanning his pictures and journal entries into the computer. Look for something from him this week!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Is he fun to chase?!

Zeus said...

Chey: I don't chase him; he chases me.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh man, so true! Der seems to be at least one in every fambly...

Fin said...

This is very big of you.

You made us laugh when you said your pet was your Money Maker.

Zeus said...

ZSS: I'm so glad other felines know what I'm going through!

Angel and Kirby said...

It takes a very big and special mancat to say he loves his brother or sister!

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I need to have a chat with him!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

The Crew said...

You are to be congratulated, Zeus, for letting Ares share your throne.

Zeus said...

Fin: I'm so glad I could make all of you smile!

Angel and Kirby: Thank you!

Khyra: I don't think Ares needs any encouragement.

Crew: Thank you! I thought it was very big of me too. ;)

Zeus said...

Figaro: thank you for coming by. I hope you come again to visit.

Jasmin: Thank you!

Island Cats: Very true. My family has been through a lot and they're the best!

Cory said...

Did you say....l-o-v-e??

Cool!

Oh Zeus, that was lovely!

We just knew you did. Love him, that is.
