Happy Friday! Hope you all had a pleasant week. We had a fun surprise last Friday. All of a sudden, we received an influx of followers on Instagram (over 150 in 24 hours, which is a lot for our account). Turns out, one of the big cat accounts (cats_of_instagram) featured a photo of our own Miss Olive!
I thought it was very nice that several cat moms reached out to us to say how cute Olive is and how she looks so similar to their own tortie, or that she reminds them of a tortie they once had. Some even sent photos of their cat. One sent photos of her tortie and her white cat together – like Olive and Sophie – but her two cats actually get along.
The whole tortie cat mom exchange thing was sweet. Tortie love runs deep! Anyway, if you want to see the featured photo of Olive, here it is!
Don’t worry, all the attention hasn’t gone to Olive’s head. But Sophie is a little miffed. And here is what the cats were chatting about this past week.
Friend or Foe?
Woodrow: Mama, what’s dat?
Mama: A spider.
Woodrow: Is it gonna get me?
Mama: No, Woodrow. It’s a small, harmless spider.
Woodrow: I think he’s eyeing me, Mama. Will you carry me inside?
A Scratcher Kind of Day
Mama: Sophie, have you moved from your scratcher today?
Sophie: The answer is no judging on a Caturday, Mama! And no…I haven’t.
Olive: The sun touches my whiskers, tummy and toes. It is a good day, Mama.
Mama: The best!
Olive: And this tortie’s tummy is now open for business.
Mama: Tummy rub time?
Olive: Get in there, Mama!

A Lost Battle
Woodrow: Mama, this sunpuddle is making me so sleepy.
Mama: Don’t fight it, Woodrow, don’t fight it.
Woodrow: (bonk) 💤💤💤
Harley: Group meeting, everyone! Mama is 12 minutes late with dinner. What should we do about it?
Olive: Throw up in her shoes!
Sophie: Knock over the trash can…
Dexter: Track litter in her bed!
Sophie: …and eat the trash!
Woodrow: Give her hugs and kisses!
Harley: Olive and Dexter, perfect. Sophie, let’s table your idea and use it as a very last resort. Woodrow, I don’t think you get how this works.
Treat Time Tunes
Woodrow: 🎶 Nom nommy nom, nom nom nommers. 🎶 That’s my treat song, Mama.
Mama: Yeah, I hear it all the time.
Woodrow: Do you have a treat song?
Woodrow: You can borrow mine.
