We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Did you eat lots of turkey? Did you give lots of thanks? I did one of those things (no turkey for this vegetarian). Stick around for the bonus photo below for a sneak peek of where I spent my Thanksgiving. Then check back on Sunday for the full story. And, be sure to check back on Wednesday next week for a fun announcement on the blog!
Here’s what the cats were chatting about this past week.
Sophie: Mama, did you just say NO to me? I’m shocked! SHOCKED! You don’t say no to the Sophie. You just don’t!
Mama: But I just did.
Sophie: Mama, I’m only going to say this once more. Pick me up like I so kindly asked and carry me to the other room. Hey! Don’t walk away from the Sophie!
Olive: Mama, I swear…if you take a photo of me like this and put it on the internets…
Mama: I would never! 📸
Sophie: I’m tired of doing sit-ups, Dexter!
Dexter: Then maybe someone shouldn’t have raided the treat stash last night.
Sophie: I regret nothing. Nothing!
Sophie: Woodrow, let’s get our stories straight. Neither one of us was on the counter today. Neither one of us got into that bag of cookies. Neither one of us ate any.
Woodrow: But we did do all that, Sophie.
Sophie: You’re the worst at this.
Apparently I didn’t put the groceries away fast enough today. I came downstairs to find a small bag of cookies on the floor torn into. These are the two likely suspects. I’m leaning toward Sophie.
Mama: Whatcha doing, Harley?
Harley: I’m resting up for the big day!
Harley: No, my homecoming anniversary. I assume there will be a big celebration, right?
Mama: Uh, yep. Let me get right on that!
Harley joined our house as a foster the day after Thanksgiving last year, so this will be his first Thanksgiving with us. We’re thankful he accepted us when we offered to adopt him. I think he’s happy he accepted. (We officially adopted him a couple months later in January.)
Dexter: Don’t listen to them, Fred. I’ll protect you. You’re my best friend.
Mama: Uh, what’s up, Dexter? And Fred?
Dexter: Sophie and Woodrow said Fred smells like stinky breath.
Mama: Well, you have been drooling all over Fred.
Dexter: Exactly! So he smells like toona juice. Which is pretty much the most amazing smell in the world! In the WORLD, Mama!
Sophie: I’m ready for Thanksgiving, Mama. Where’s the turkey?
Mama: There isn’t any. Did you forget that your pops and I are vegetarians?
Sophie: GASP!!! Sacrilege!
Mama: And besides, you’re allergic to turkey.
Sophie: Hello?!? Is there anyone out there looking for an adorable white cat with beautiful blue eyes? Loves cuddling, kneading and will be your best friend forever? I mean, as long as turkey is involved.
Dexter, Olive, Sophie, Woodrow, Harley and the humans at Three Chatty Cats wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hopefully for your cat’s sake, turkey will be involved. We’re thankful for each and every one of you – our blog readers, social media friends and cat buddies. Happy Thanksgiving!
