I have a Zippermoe and you don’t. Pretty bold statement I know, but it’s true. I am not sure how many Zippermoes are in existence but I know they are rare.

My Zippermoe has traveled with me across country and back, packed away in my desk but it came. I’m not a very good Zippermoe parent. Probably not giving it the love and attention I should.

Don’t recall the exact date I was given my Zippermoe but I can vividly recall my reaction. My brain slowed and swelled trying to take in all that was a Zippermoe and yet at the same time fought to hold back my mouth and my well known facial expressions from becoming the living embodiment of the phrase “WTF?!?”IMG_4975

It was a very sloooow “W…T…F…?” Head cock and all accompanied by a “wow” and a “yikes” I studied my new gift.IMG_4976

What could bring on this level of creativity in a human? This was created in 1999. 17 years ago. What were you doing 17 years ago?

17 years ago Jeff Earleywine thought it would be a good idea to wash his cats shedded hair, glue a magnet and some eyes to it, name it, package it up in a little baggy normally reserved for illicit drugs, add a typed back story ready to share with the masses and then he created a website for it. 17 years ago.IMG_4979yes this is happening to you right now….IMG_4980

I have owned Jethro for 17 years. I have swept up mountains of white shiba hair in 17 years. Papered, purebred shiba hair. But never once thought I should make Jethromoes out of it. Probably because the name sounded so bad. I could even make Cottonmoes and Tuckermoes but honestly it would be some crazy hybrid since they are all white and it would require a microscope to separate the strands.

It doesn’t matter anyways. A Zippermoe is from a cat. I own dogs. Funny, cats are known in general as having attitude. I wonder if these cats had any idea what was happening to their fur.IMG_4982
