Sophie here! I’m posting for Mama in her absence, as she and Pops are still off abandoning us vacationing. Okay, so it’s only been one day so far. But in cat days that’s like 2,100,018 days. Have I mentioned that I’m prone to hyperbole?
My plan while the parental figures are away? Lots of cuddles with our cat sitter who’s staying with us. You know, make them super jealous so they come home early. Think it’ll work? Yeah, I know, it’s foolproof!
Anyway, here’s what the fursibs and I were chatting about this past week.
Mama: You two look very cute and cozy.
Olive: Yes, we are. Does that mean we get extra treats?
Mama: I’m not sure how that equals extra treats.
Olive: If I have to explain it to you, then it’s not worth explaining. Suffice it to say just give us the extra treats.
Dexter: Sophie, you’re gonna have to move soon. I have things to do today.
Sophie: Are those things more important than cuddling with me?
Dexter: Believe it or not, yes.
Sophie: I don’t believe it, so I’m not moving.
Olive: It was an accident, Mama. I swear!
Mama: So, you just accidentally jumped onto the counter. And accidentally face planted into the cream cheese container?
Mama: Somehow I doubt that.
Olive: Um, my shadow made me do it?
Olive loves cream cheese, but this morning was the first time she jumped on the counter to help herself. And no, she’s not allowed to be on the counter. And no, I don’t feed her cream cheese. But a tortie does what a tortie wants to do.
Happy New Year!
Mama: Why do you have Sophie’s winter cap on?
Woodrow: I thought we were going out tonight. You know, to party.
Mama: Nope, we’re doing our traditional stay in and fall asleep before midnight thing.
Woodrow: Oh, good. I’m getting too old for this party stuff, Mama. But I will keep the cap on. Mix things up a little bit.
Mama: Ready for the New Year, Dexter?
Dexter: I think so, Mama. The sun is shining, my whiskers look amazing (like, really amazing, Mama) and I had two breakfasts this morning. What a perfect start to 2019!
Mama: Sophie, look at me.
Sophie: No! I saw you get that suitcase out. I know you’re leaving us.
Mama: It’s called a vacation.
Sophie: It’s called betrayal, Mama.
Take Me With You!
Woodrow: I’m ready to go on vacation with you, Mama.
Mama: Sorry, you’re not coming.
Woodrow: But Mama, I’ve got the Sleepypod all packed and ready to go.
Mama: We’ll be back next week. The cat sitter is staying here while we’re gone.
Woodrow: Mama, I’m not sure you heard me. I said I have the Sleepypod all packed and ready to go!
Bonus Friday Photos
Here are some shots of when Mama made Dexter put on the New Year’s tie. I know what you’re thinking – he’s super adorable and where can you get this tie. It’s actually Eddie’s tie (our woofie brother) and his groomer gave it to him. So basically, you have to get a woofie brother, then get him groomed…and then you can get this awesome tie!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, furry friends! And you two-legged friends, too.
