Chatty Cats: Vacation, Cat Sitter and More!

Happy Friday! We returned from vacation on Wednesday and the cats were happy about that. Harley poo’d in my office chair to show me just how happy he was. I’ll be posting about our trip next week to show you the “cats” we encountered. Stay tuned!

About the daily photos this past week…Someone on Instagram asked if the cat sitter was taking the photos while I was away. Usually, the photos are taken the actual day that I post them on social media. But I wanted to plan in advance and took this past week’s photos before I left. However, the cat sitter did take and send me the photos of Sophie with the curtain.

So, with all that said, here’s what the cats were chatting about this past week!

A New Mama

Harley: Are you my new mama?
Cat Sitter: No, I’m just staying here while your mama is on vacation.
Harley: You feed me and pet me just like mama. Are you sure you’re not my new mama? (whispering) Where’s my mama?
Cat Sitter: You miss her, don’t you.
Harley: I don’t want to talk about it.

A Negotiation

Cat Sitter: Dexter, may I pet you?
Dexter: I’m undecided.
Cat Sitter: I have a treat for you.
Dexter: If you give me eight treats, I’ll allow one pet.
Cat Sitter: That seems like a lot of treats for one pet.
Dexter: Take it or leave it. The offer expires in two seconds.

Hide and Seek (Sophie Style)

Cat Sitter: What are you doing behind the curtain, Sophie?
Sophie: I’m hiding. Go away and then come find me.
Cat Sitter: But I know where you are. Do you want to hide again?
Sophie: No. Go away, forget you saw me, and then come find me.
Cat Sitter: Um, okay.
Sophie: But don’t take too long. It’s almost my naptime. And perhaps bring a treat back with you. And then be ready to carry me to my napping spot. And do the countdown really loud before you come find me so I know you’re coming.
Cat Sitter: Are you this bossy with your mama?
Sophie: Yes. But oddly she doesn’t follow my instructions very well. I hope you do better.

Tortie On Duty

Olive: Hey you! Whatcha doing up there?
Cat Sitter: Checking emails. What about you?
Olive: Just keeping my eye on you so I can report back to Mama.
Cat Sitter: I’m the one cat sitting you.
Olive: Well, I’m human watching you. Mama’s paying me in toona. How much is she paying you? And is it in toona or catnip? I may need to have a discussion with Mama if it’s more toona than I’m getting.

Cute Dexter

Dexter: Hey, will you do me a favor? Will you take a photo of me looking all cute so Mama wants to come home early from vacation?
Cat Sitter: Sure, tell me when you’re looking all cute.
Dexter: Hey!
Cat Sitter: Just kidding. I love you, Dexter.
Dexter: Yeah, you’re growing on me…

Woodrow: Welcome home, Mama!
Mama: Thank you, Woodrow.
Woodrow: I’ve been such a good boy while you were away. Can you tell?

The Answer Is No

Mama: Could you two be any cuter?
Dexter: Hold on, Mama. Sophie, what do you think?
Sophie: We’re pretty cute, Dexter. I think maximum cuteness has been reached.
Dexter: Mama, it’s decided. We couldn’t be any cuter.

  1. Oh I know ALL of you missed each other – and it’s really just so exciting to be reunited even though everyone has had a nice break. Poop on the chair is not the choice you’d make I’m sure of a welcome home from Harley BUT he certainly made a statement didn’t he!!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  2. OMC I can’t believe Harley pooped in your chair! Also, now that you are back, for some reason your blog isn’t storing my information. I have to enter it new each time I comment :(

  3. Seems as if you all are practiced negotiators, and you are definitely cute. Pooing in the chair, however, is not nice. We know you are happy to have your mama home. Hope she stays put.

  4. Wow, that shot from the plane is awesome! Your cats have the BEST conversations with you (and the cat sitter!). :)
