It’s been a big week at the Chatty Cats household! We had a new custom-built catio installed on Tuesday, introduced a new blog header on Wednesday (look up!), and celebrated Olive’s 7th Gotcha Day on Thursday. Whew! How was your week?
Mama: Sophie, give me your best menacing face.
Mama: That won’t work at all.
Sophie: Why not, Mama?
Mama: Because you’re just too stinkin’ cute!
Old Man Dex
Mama: Looks like someone stayed up too late last night.
Dexter: I’m getting old, Mama. I can’t keep up with these youngsters anymore. Sophie actually wanted to play chicken with the robot vacuum last night. Chicken, Mama! She’s such a daredevil.
Mama: Well, who won?
Dexter: Sophie. She always wins. Oh, and you might need a new vacuum.
I tried to start up the robot vacuum this morning and it wouldn’t work. Now I’m not blaming Sophie or anything, but who knows what goes on when the mama is sleeping. #latenightshenanigans
Dexter: Mama, I feel like I’m being mocked.
Harley: Mama, I feel like I’m being mocked. Wah wah wah.
Woodrow: C’mon guys, it’s time for our morning yoga. I call this one Downward Cat, get it?
Dexter: We get it, Woodrow. You’re sooooo clever.
Olive: Is there one called “Get Outta Here Ya Big Oaf?”
Woodrow: That sounds kinda complicated, Olive. But I’ll check and let you know.
Jungle Cat Sophie
Sophie: The ferocious jungle cat searches for her next meal.
Mama: Sophie, get down before you fall off again.
Sophie: The ferocious jungle cat likes to walk on the edge. No height will stop her.
Mama: But gravity will.
Sophie: It was one time, Mama. ONE TIME!!
Dexter: Thanks for the catio, Mama. But there’s one thing missing.
Mama: What’s that?
Dexter: I can’t find the bell to call you when I need some toona. You better get the catio guy back out here to install it asap. I may starve without it.
The Missing Present
Mama: Whatcha lookin’ for, Olive?
Olive: My present.
Mama: What present?
Olive: My Gotcha Day present, of course!
Mama: Oh, right. Uh, that’s being delivered later. Hey, I gotta run out really quick. Be back soon!
Olive joined our family seven years ago on June 7, 2011. She was a stray kitten found by asphalt workers outside our house. Dexter, the only cat we had at the time, loved her immediately. The two were inseparable. Olive still hasn’t forgiven us for taking in Sophie two years later. Happy Gotcha Day, Olive! (And sorry about Sophie.)
Hope you have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend!
