Olive here! Just dropping in to say hello and give a few updates. Mom and Dad are finally back from vacation. They went off and left us with Grandma. You may have seen Sophie complaining on social media that their vacation was 11 years long. But I’m calling her out as an exaggerator! (It was only 8 years.)
Here are a couple pictures from their trip – they went to Vancouver. I know that Mom is planning on doing a post about the cat cafe she visited while there.
Happy Gotcha Day to Me
While the parents were away, I celebrated my 6th Gotcha Day. I know, how dare they be gone for such a momentous anniversary! June 7, 2011 was the date I joined the household. Here’s what Mom posted about it.
Happy Gotcha Day to this beautiful tortie! Six years ago, Olive joined our family…and here is her Gotcha Story: On a warm June afternoon in 2011, a little tortie kitten was found by asphalt workers outside in our neighborhood. The workers saw the kitten dart into the yard of a neighbor and didn’t want her to get hurt or harmed by the freshly laid asphalt. They caught the little kitten, and another neighbor (a cat lover herself) offered to take her and see if she’d simply escaped from the safety of her home. Ross (my hubby) and I arrived home from getting dinner and saw the friendly neighbor lady walking around with a cat carrier. Curious, I asked about the latest and greatest in neighborhood happenings, and she told me what had happened. She was unable to keep her overnight, so I eagerly said I’d take the little one in and continue the search for her possible owners. She wasn’t microchipped, had no collar, so we put up signs in the neighborhood – no one came forward. But we didn’t care. We’d fallen in love with the tortie furball. Estimated to be about eight weeks old at the time, Olive had found her forever home with us. And that’s the Gotcha Story of the second of the Three Chatty Cats! I love you, Olive! #threechattycats #happygotchaday
More of Me on the Blog!
While the parents were goofing off and enjoying themselves in the city, I got to thinking about how Mom hasn’t been posting here on the blog enough lately. I know, I know…something about being busy and a construction project at the house for a month (it’s actually still going on).
Anyway, I told Mom that she should let us – the actual Three Chatty Cats – blog more! You know what I mean? Yep, I’m a tortie who makes total sense.
With that said, I’ve claimed Tuesdays as my day. Looks like Sophie wants Sundays. As for Dexter, he said he doesn’t need a day. Regular readers know he’s pretty shy, although he may pop in now and then to say hello. But it might be up to me and my
bratty sister to share his thoughts.
I think that’s all I have for now. I feel a nap coming on. Happy Tortie Talk Tuesday! (That’s a thing, really!)
