Happy Friday! We here at Three Chatty Cats (and the Jr. Associates) hit a fun, little milestone this week. March 26th marked one year of posting our daily chats on social media. You can read more about it under our “Happy Chativersary” post below. And thanks to an Instagram follower for giving us the word Chativersary – we love it!
Here’s what the cats were chatting about this past week.
Woodrow to the Rescue
Woodrow: Hey guys! Mama called and she’s running late. But don’t worry, I’ll get dinner started. I know where she keeps everything. We thinkin’ tuna or chicken tonight?
Sometimes I keep a stool in front of the cat food cabinet. I moved it away today and Woodrow took that as an invitation to help himself. He’s so cute as he walks backward all the way to open the door. Love his little belly! ❤ Do your cats get into the cabinets?
Red Dot Wars
Olive: Today is the day I will crush the red dot. Kitties everywhere, I will fight in your honor! I will slay the red dot and vanquish it forever! Kitties, are you with me? I said are you with me?!?
Mama: Yes, yes, I’m sure they’re with you. Dinner is ready, so hurry up.
Olive: Ah, a reprieve! What a surprising turn of events. Perhaps the red dot shall live to see another day. But mark my words, tomorrow the red dot shall perish under the-
Mama: Olive! Dinner. Come on.
Olive: Mama! I’m monologuing here!
An Acquired Taste
Mama: Sophie, do you know who ate the dog’s food?
Sophie: Umm, noooooo?
Sophie: Would this face lie to you, Mama?
The routine is to feed the cats first (they get wet food) and then feed Eddie our dog (who gets kibble as part of his meal). The other day, I don’t know why but I set down Eddie’s food first. Sophie ran over to Eddie’s bowl before I could catch her. She heard me running and literally stuffed her face with his food, ran upstairs with me chasing after her and then she spit out her treasure – five pieces of dog kibble. Think about how big dog food is compared to a cat’s mouth – I don’t know how she managed five pieces! She is one determined cat…and a troublemaker. But adorable.
Woodrow: Mama, is it time yet?
Mama: Let me check…yep!
Woodrow: Okay, do it. DO IT!
Mama: Guess what, Sophie. Today is our one year anniversary of posting these daily chats!
Sophie: How many of those chats and photos were with me?
Sophie: Then I deserve 107 treats.
Mama: No way!
Sophie: Let’s see…107 of 365 days is 29.315%. Let’s round up and call it even at 30 treats. Fair is fair, Mama.
Mama: When did you become so good at math?
Sophie: When treats are involved, I’m a math genius. I’ll take 15 treats now and 45 before bed.
I started posting these chats one year ago today. My goal was simply to post a bit more on social media, but it turned into a daily occurrence. And then several months in, my goal was to make it to one year. Which is today! But don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere (the cats are still chatty after all). And thank you for following along! Without you all, there’d be no point. Anyway, I hope the cats brighten your day and make you smile.
More Grooming Suggested
Dexter: Mama, grooming is very important. I groom like 5 to 6 hours every day.
Mama: Good job!
Dexter: Looks like you groom maybe 15 minutes a day?
Wanted: New Mama
Harley: Come in, come in! Is anyone out there? This is Harley broadcasting to you from my super secret box location. Mama has betrayed us. She has been visiting other cats…petting them, feeding them, scooping their litter. It’s horrible! Can anyone save us? Or at least me? I’m taking applications for a new mama.
Mama: Harley, do you have my phone?
Harley: I must go now. If you’d like to apply to be my new mama, you know where to find me. Over and out. End transmission. Buh-bye.
Bonus Friday Photos
Further to the “Acquired Taste” chat above – here’s Sophie watching Eddie eat. See how he’s dropped a piece of food, taunting her?
And don’t feel bad for Eddie…Sophie watches everyone eat.
And remember, our giveaway for a Basepaws Catkit (two winners!) is open through Sunday, March 31st.
