We’ll be a bit of an empty house today. Three cats have dental cleanings! Olive, Sophie and Woodrow are off to the vet this morning. Poor Olive, an unplanned vet appointment last Friday and now a planned one today. I’ll be dropping them off at 7:00 this morning and will likely be able to pick them up around 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon. They’ll be plenty mad at me. Well, at least Olive anyway. I’m pretty sure that Woodrow thinks Ross and I can do no wrong. And Sophie will just think it’s a fun adventure.
Here’s what the cats were chatting about this past week!
Watch Your Back
Mama: How long are you going to stay mad at me Olive?
Olive: Forever. I can’t believe you made me go to the vet today!
Mama: But you weren’t eating.
Olive: Liar! I started eating as soon as you made the appointment this morning.
Mama: Well, I just wanted to be safe and take you anyway.
Olive: Safe? Yeah…you better sleep safely tonight.
We’re back from the vet. Olive was already eating again before we took her. So, we’re just monitoring her and have her on an appetite stimulant. I think she just likes to keep us on our toes. (UPDATE: She has been eating fine all week. No appetite stimulant needed.)
Sophie: Mama, can you bring me breakfast in bed this morning? I’m sleeping in with daddy.
Mama: You already had breakfast at 5:30 this morning.
Mama: Look at what your biggest admirer Miss Stacy sent you! A piggy! She wanted you to have this after you didn’t get bacon on your Gotcha Day.
Woodrow: I love my piggy! Thank you, Auntie Stacy! But why did she send a piggy?
Mama: Where do you think bacon comes from?
Woodrow: The bacon farm. Duh, Mama!
Mama: No, silly. It comes from pigs.
Mama: Do you still want bacon?
Woodrow: (whispering) Umm, yes. I’ll cover Piggy’s eyes.
Mama: Sophie! Who tore open this bag of treats?
Sophie: Erm…I don’t know. Did you check with Woodrow?
Dexter: nom nom nom
Mama: Good packing paper?
Dexter: Yep, it’s a good batch. Really fresh, very crunchy. Can you add it to our auto-ship order?
Olive: Mama, we need to talk.
Mama: What’s up?
Olive: I’ve been very disappointed lately in the quality of your chin scritches.
Mama: Sorry, I’ll work on it.
Olive: Go practice on Sophie. She’s not a very discerning cat.
Handsome, Grumpy and Proud!
Mama: Hey there, Mr. Handsome.
Harley: Who dat? Me?
Mama: Yes, silly!
Harley: I’m confused. Am I handsome or silly?
Mama: You’re both. But usually grumpy.
Harley: And proud of it!
Bonus Friday Bloopers
These shots are from last weekend when I was trying to do a product photo shoot in the cat room. Woodrow grew bored and decided to go exploring. He slid open a storage bin and proceeded to hop in. You can see that Harley took advantage of it next.
