About The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey

The Chronicles of Zee and ZoeyCombining a warm, humorous, and conversational style of writing with stunning photos and charming artwork, readers are immediately immersed into the world of Zee, a lovable male Maine Coon cat, and Zoey, a high-spirited female Bengal cat, as they share their amazing relationship and bond that formed between the two of them in The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey. What makes this story so compelling, is that the author narrates the journey of the cats through the personal trials and tribulations of her own life. Readers will easily be able to relate to the many moments the author shares and her spot on accuracy in understanding the many nuances of a cat is so realistic, one might think the author was a cat herself!  You will be certain to smile and laugh on more than one occasion as you share this incredible journey with Zee and Zoey and learn the ultimate message they teach us – to embrace the ordinary in life and dare to make it extraordinary.

Book Excerpt:

“Imagine, if you would, a world of love at first sight, where pigs do fly, where carpets are meant for magical rides, where empty boxes are transformed to magnificent castles and forts and a door becomes the gateway to the unlimited possibility of a charming and enchanted garden filled with endless adventure and intrigue. That, my dear readers, is the looking glass world of Zee and Zoey and this is their journey of a shared life, where everyday, the merest of ordinary becomes the possibility of extraordinary in their minds eye.

Zee is my lovable male Maine Coon cat and Zoey my female wild-child leopard inspired Bengal cat who fell madly, deeply in love. Zee was sharing his home with his two humans – myself and my fiancé, Dan, as well as a dog and two other cats before being introduced to Zoey for the first time, and was, in his opinion, leading a rather boring and mundane life. Zoey came unsuspectingly into his world as a tiny slip of a thing and stole his heart from the very beginning. Her youth and exuberance was contagious and she celebrated everything with gusto and passion. Nothing was ordinary to her and Zee came to follow in her example as they explored life together, completely inseparable, reveling in every extraordinary moment…”

My Thoughts

First of all, I will say this book is Amazingly Beautiful inside and out. The quality top of the class, the photos and illustrations are exceptional, the colors are beautiful, the font is pleasing to the eyes, it’s just a book that you gotta love!

As for Zee and Zoey, they are adorable and I enjoyed their entire journey throughout this book. And I especially enjoyed their four babies. I couldn’t put the book down when I was reading about each week of these four new babies’ lives. And the adorable pictures of these precious little ones were so cute I just can’t stop looking at them. How I wish I could get my hands on one of them! Of course they are grown now! But Zee and Zoey’s story is well worth reading.

But, this book is not only about Zee and Zoey, it is about the life of the author and her family, as well as all of her animal friends down through the years. I couldn’t help thinking how blessed these precious animals were to have this family to live with, and especially the ones the family rescued. This is one amazing family.

So, if you are a dog lover and think this book is not for you, think again! You will enjoy it as much as anyone. And this book is good for anyone who loves animals. Your children will really enjoy looking at the amazing pictures here in this book. Really, I just can’t say enough about this book. So why not grab a copy for your coffee table to have as a great conversation piece when someone comes over. You will not be disappointed, and will have a wonderful addition to your library.

    Thank you for your take on this book Splashes of Joy. It was my hope, that although this book clearly is for cat lovers, that it could be enjoyed across the board and I am happy you could recoginize that. The kittens were such a joy in my life and it was so amazing to watch them grow up and I am thrilled I can share that experience with readers.
