Happy Friday! We had a nice surprise this week to learn that we’ve received two Certificates of Excellence from the Cat Writers’ Association! One is for a photo of Woodrow…
And the other certificate is for our Remember Me Thursday post: Pro Tips for Adopting a Shelter Cat (from a former shelter cat!).
This was our first year entering the CWA Communications Contest, and I submitted a total of four entries. The other two entries were for humor categories, so I guess we’re not as funny as I’d hoped. Oh, just kidding! I know our readers and followers appreciate us, but judging can be hard (I was also a judge) – and humor is definitely subjective. We’re happy that we were recognized for the above-mentioned entries, and we’re honored to be in such good company!
Here’s what the cats were chatting about this past week.
Cute and Ferocious
Dexter: Mama, look what I can do! (whaps toy)
Mama: You’re very cute.
Dexter: I’m not cute! I’m a wild ferocious tiger mancat!
Mama: Well, you’re probably the cutest wild ferocious tiger mancat ever.
Dexter: (sighs) It’s a burden I must carry.
Olive on a Caturday
Mama: Hi, Olive. Uh, what’s going on here?
Olive: It’s Caturday, Mama.
Olive: And the catnip jar may need a refill now.
Sophie: Look, Mama. Dexter and Olive are having fun without me.
Mama: Go join them.
Sophie: Olive won’t let me.
Mama: She probably doesn’t like you pouncing on her.
Sophie: I can’t help it, Mama! She causes my inner pounce monster to come out. It’s not healthy to hold in a pounce, you know.
Mama: You’re looking adorable today.
Dexter: Am I extra treats adorable?
Mama: I’d say…two extra treats adorable.
Dexter: I was going for five.
Mama: Wait, what?
Woodrow: Mama, you haven’t posted my picture lately. My friends are going to forget what I look like!
Mama: It’s only been a week. I’m sure they remember what you look like.
Woodrow: Friends, are you out there? It’s me, Woodrow. Dis is what I look like!
Sophie: Mama, Dexter has gone wonky again! Will you reboot him?
Mama: I’ll be right there.
Sophie: Hurry, I think it’s contagious!
Harley: May I have a word, Mama?
Mama: Uh oh, that doesn’t sound good.
Harley: I thought spring had arrived. It was hailing yesterday and now it’s freezing today!
Mama: You know, technically, 60 degrees isn’t freezing.
Harley: Zip it, Mama! I’m not in the mood for your technicalities.
After our weekend in the 80s, we saw rain, hail, lightning and thunder yesterday. All of the cats are curled up tight today. Seeing them all (pretend) to be so cold, I turned on the heater for them. Has spring arrived in your area?
