Olive here! We had a nice long holiday break this year. Dad works at a university and always gets off between Christmas and New Years. Mom decided to take time off and join him this year. So, what did the humans do for their 10-day break? Absolutely nothing!
Okay, okay…I guess they didn’t do nothing. They did host Christmas dinner. They also saw five movies in theater (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Greatest Showman, All the Money in the World and Molly’s Game). They had a random celebrity sighting (Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen). And they also took lots of naps. (That’s the nothing part I was talking about earlier.) Mom was sick for about half of the break, so that’s her excuse for napping so much.
But when she wasn’t watching movies and napping, Mom took lots of photos of us, although she never got around to sharing them. So, I thought I’d pop in and give you this pictorial recap of our holiday break.
Woodrow and Dexter
The temperature finally dropped here in Southern California and Mom spotted the two tabby boys sleeping together…not once, not twice, but three times! As regular readers may know, Woodrow isn’t really friends with any of us first three cats. So, Mom gets really excited when she sees something like this.
Now, as any good older sibling, I’m happy to embarrass Sophie any chance I get. And this is definitely embarrassing! Dad doesn’t like dressing up us cats…which is why it surprised everyone when he bought this police uniform for Sophie!
“Freeze! Put your hands up!”
Mom and Dad couldn’t entice her to walk in it, which would’ve made it really funny. But I guess she does look kinda cute in the uniform. They know to not try this with me!
And if that outfit wasn’t enough, our grandma bought a sweatshirt for Eddie (our woofie brother) for Christmas and it was way too small for him. You can probably guess what happened…Mom made Sophie wear it instead. The second photo really accentuates her primordial pouch, don’t ya think?
Foster cat Harley is still with us. He now regularly joins us downstairs whenever he feels like it. He also tries to play with Woodrow in the mornings. Sometimes he successful. During the break, Harley kept Mom company when she was sick in bed.
And when he wasn’t helping Mom to feel better, Harley could be found in his cozy cat bed, keeping warm.
That just leaves me. What was I up to this holiday break? Well, perhaps it was the Christmas spirit in me, but Mom actually found me touching Sophie! I know, I couldn’t believe it myself.
Mom posted the below video on Facebook earlier. But we wanted to post it here as well and say thank you for all the holiday cards we received! After Mom made the video, she found three others she’d left out! She says she’s sorry if she missed including your card.
Lastly, we want to say thank you for reading our blog in 2017. Mom certainly wasn’t as diligent in posting as she was the previous year. But overall, 2017 was a pretty good year for the Three Chatty Cats blog. And we’re excited to see what’s to come in 2018.
Happy New Year from all of us at Three Chatty Cats!
Did you do anything exciting during the holidays?
