Happy Friday! As some followers already know, Dexter had a dental cleaning on Monday. This was his second one – and thankfully, he didn’t need any extractions this time either. However, we are trying to determine some issues going on with him, which you can read about below. He’s fine, but we do need to get to the bottom of it. He’s most upset about having a shaved belly. But someone on Facebook pointed out that he’s beach body ready!
Here’s what the cats were chatting about this past week.
National Cat Lady Day (kind of)
Sophie: It’s our day today, Mama!
Mama: What do you mean?
Sophie: It’s National Cat Lady Day!
Mama: Then it’s MY day.
Sophie: No, it’s OUR day. I’m a cat and you’re a lady.
Mama: I’m pretty sure they mean ladies who like cats…so it’s my day.
Sophie: It’s OUR day, Mama!!! Just accept it and be grateful you get half a day!
Dexter: Watch out, Mama.
Dexter: Here it comes…
Mama: What’s coming?
Dexter: BAM!!! Cuteness.
Mama: Oh, my heart!
Dexter: I did warn you.
Sophie: Okay, move the camera a little this way. Now make sure I’m centered and in focus…and 📸! Another perfect selfie!
Mama: You’re a little blurry.
Sophie: How dare you, Mama. I’m flawless!
Dexter’s Big Day
Dexter: Um, Mama…I thought you said I was going in for a dental today.
Mama: You did. And no extractions – yay!
Dexter: So, why is my belly shaved? That seems like a pretty invasive dental!
Yep, Dexter had a dental cleaning today and didn’t need any extractions. But about his shaved belly – he also had an ultrasound. Dexter has had occasional blood in his stool for a while now. He’s had fecal and blood tests, and everything has come back fine. We’ve also changed his diet. He is a very skittish cat and sometimes blood in the stool can be a sign of stress. Or maybe he has IBD. So, we ran another type of test today (test results coming) and did an ultrasound to see if we could find anything else. So far, nothing obvious. But we’ll keep trying to figure it out! As you can see in this photo, he’s still feeling the effects of the anesthesia.
Tortie Tummy on a Tuesday
Mama: Olive, want to take an ultimate Tortie Tummy Rub Tuesday shot?
Mama: Oh, that’s good. That’s really good. 📸
Olive: No more pictures, Mama. One is all you get. Now rub my tummy!
Woodrow: Mama, I’m sorry you caught me on the counter today.
Mama: You’re sorry for being on the counter or sorry that I caught you?
Woodrow: Um, a little of both?
Woodrow: Okay, mostly that you caught me. But I’m still sorry. And it’s the sorry part that counts!
Woodrow has been getting on the kitchen counter every day lately. It was nice when he used to at least jump off when he heard me coming. Now he doesn’t even care and just nonchalantly walks to the edge and jumps down. Do you have any counter-surfing cats?
Harley: Mama, do you even love me?
Mama: Of course! Why?
Harley: Well, I asked for breakfast in bed this morning and you didn’t deliver.
Mama: You lead a hard life, Harley.
Harley: Oh geez, don’t be all dramatic, Mama. I just want breakfast in bed every morning. From someone who claims to love me, I don’t think that’s asking too much.

If you listen closely, you can hear Olive grumble at Woodrow. She doesn’t like him so close.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I’ll be attending a pet expo. Should be fun!
