Sophie here, the cutest, sweetest and most humble of the cats. I’ve been giving our Human Lady Mama a hard time because she started a blog called Three Chatty Cats, but she rarely ever shares anything about us – the actual cats! She said something about keeping the blog focused on cat rescues and individuals doing their part to help cats. Some nonsense about how not all blog readers want to read about us cats.
Well, hmpfh to that!
I told her that some people DO want to read about us cats! In fact, some people find us more interesting than those do-gooders. She reminded me that do-gooders make the world go ’round, especially for a lot of homeless kitties like I once was. I guess I see her point. Anyway…
I was finally able to convince the Human Lady Mama that she needs to blog more about us three cats (and by that, I mean mostly me). We should have our own space to share our profound thoughts and reflections as well as our squee worthy pictures. We are super excited to start sharing our thoughts with you. But before that, I’m going to give you a bit of background on us, since many of you may not know a thing about us cats. For which I blame the Human Lady Mama. What you see below (after the Mama’s quick message) is upgraded stuff from our About page, which the Mama had originally written herself, without any input from me. So I had to correct that for her, naturally.
Thanks for reading and we (the cats) look forward to chatting with you!
Hugs and meows,
Sophie Zee Kitty
A word from the Human Lady Mama
Until now, I have kept Three Chatty Cats focused on rescues and others doing their part to help cats, which I will of course continue to do. But I’ve found that some of my more popular content has been about the cats, probably because the readers love cats! I decided that a little bit of variety was in order, so you will now start to see posts about or even from my three cats – Dexter, Olive and Sophie – who inspired this blog. I hope you enjoy reading about them and thanks for supporting us thus far in our blogging journey!
Happy Reading! ~Rachel
First, I present to you our big brother Dexter. He’s my best friend (haha to you, Olive). I love him very much and I’m pretty sure he loves me back. Here’s what you need to know about Dexter.
Name: Dexter (he’s a boy cat)
Date of Birth: June 1, 2010 (the Human Lady Mama estimates this to be his b-day)
Date of Rescue: June 20, 2010
Rescue synopsis: Dexter was found as a three-week-old kitten in Palm Desert, California on a 100+ degree day!
Likes: Shredding Kleenex, sneaking into the garage, cuddling with me and Olive (separately, of course), looking grumpy, and eating my special diet food. He’s also a master groomer of the highest order.
Dislikes: Everything else – and I mean everything!
Known for: Crying loudly in the morning until the Mama gets up to feed him. He’s the shyest of us three cats. And hey, I heard that Dexter is the favorite of some blog readers. I’m not sure what that’s about!

Next I will tell you about my evil sister, Olive. I say she’s evil, but she’s not so bad. I like to give her a hard time because she hisses at me all the time. I mean all. the. time. I know I’m the kid sister, but shouldn’t Olive be nice to me every once in a while? Anyway, here’s Olive’s stuff. Blabbity, blah, blah.
Name: Olive (she’s a girl cat)
Date of Birth: April 7, 2011 (the Mama’s just guessing)
Date of Rescue: June 7, 2011
Rescue synopsis: Olive was found by asphalt workers outside the Human Lady Mama’s house, approximately eight weeks old at the time.
Likes: Lasers, treats and sitting in boxes.
Dislikes: Me! And being picked up. She absolutely hates that.
Known for: Being a loner, begging for treats, spending all day in her gargantuan size box, being my arch nemesis, growling at poor me, hissing at innocent me, swiping at sweet little me after I chase her down the hall – I just don’t get it! Must be that famous tortitude I always hear about.

So, that just leaves ME! The beautiful, smart, charming Sophie. I’m the baby of the family, which means I’m always innocent. I
always never get into trouble. The humans never find me on the counter or pulling Q-tips out of the trash. Never!
Name: Sophie Zee Kitty (I’m a girl cat, but not a girlie-girl cat)
Date of Birth: May 29, 2014 (I won’t tell Mama the real date)
Date of Rescue: November 29, 2014
Rescue synopsis: I was found outside a movie theater by security guards who (easily) guilt-tripped the Human Lady Mama into taking me home. (“We called animal control and you know what will happen to her at the pound!”) I also did my part and batted my baby blue eyes at her. I was about six months old at the time.
Likes: FOOD! And FOOD!
Dislikes: Nothing, except for Olive. (And Eddie.)
Known for: Stealing straws, stealing bottle caps, terrorizing Olive, being the goofball of the family, occasionally getting into a bit of trouble, loving on Pops, chattering to Moms, basically being perfect.
