Pet of the day: Zeus - Father of gods, lover of women and all round cutie pie

In Mangawhai, Zeus takes a nap after a long day of playing.

In Mangawhai, Zeus takes a nap after a long day of playing.

Zeus is a chinchilla cross. He is a silver tabby colour with big, green and blue eyes.

At the ripe old age of 7 months, his hobbies include bird watching, playing with my toys, cuddling with humans, vegging out in front of the TV and sitting in boxes.

Zeus really loves to explore. We take him with us to Mangawhai most weekends where he enjoys riding in the car, playing and exploring around my partner's parents' farm, and hanging out with his best friend Lottie (a tiny tortoiseshell kitten, one month younger than Zeus).

Whilst he is an independent explorer, Zeus also thoroughly enjoys spending time with my partner and I. He's joined us for a walk on a handful of occasions, and loves to snuggle up with us under the bed covers on exceptionally cold nights.

He is a very happy, cuddly little boy who is almost always purring and seems to be thoroughly enjoying his life.

Bird watching is part of Zeus' morning routine, and is probably his favorite passtime.

Zeus brings happiness and delight to whoever he meets. Even some of our friends who have never been into cats have been sucked in by his charming personality. He is very sociable and loves visitors.
