Chatty Cats: Innocent, Bossy and More!

Happy Friday! Guess what today is? It’s Olive’s 8th Gotcha Day! That’s right, we found Olive as a stray kitten back in 2011. Actually, we didn’t find her. Asphalt workers found her wandering around and we took her in. She had no microchip and no one came forward when we put up flyers. Dexter, who was one year old at the time, insisted that we keep her. So, we did!

Here’s a photo from 10 days after Olive found us. It’s one of my all time favorites. It looks like she’s smiling and happy to be in her forever home with her big bro Dexter.

Here’s what the cats were up to this week.

Office Cat

Harley: Mama, is it quittin’ time yet?
Mama: Not quite.
Harley: Do you need me to make copies or refill the stapler? I would offer to answer the phone, but it didn’t go so well last time. Customer service is not my forte.
Mama: You just sit there and look cute.
Harley: Will that get me Employee of the Month?
Mama: It’s between you and Olive.
Harley: Drat! That Olive is master of the 10 key.

I am fortunate that I work for a company where I get to work from home. And one of the perks is staring at cute faces like this. In the late afternoon, all of the cats mosey into my office or wait just outside the door like Harley is doing here. They believe that treats are due after a long day of hard work, especially on a Friday!

No Privacy

Mama: What’s up, Olive?
Olive: I’m not talking to you.
Mama: Why?
Olive: Because you always post what I say online.
Mama: I would never… (click click click) …and post.

Innocent Dexter

Mama: What did you do?
Dexter: What do you mean?
Mama: You look guilty.
Dexter: No, this is my innocent face. Don’t worry about it.
Mama: Okay.
Dexter: But don’t go upstairs. Ever. Again.

With five cats, it’s always an adventure walking through the house. What am I going to find? What’s going to be missing? Who knocked over that drink? What did I just step in? Cat moms and dads, I’m sure you understand.

So Bossy

Sophie: You’re doing it wrong!
Mama: If you want to come over here and scrub your litter pans, be my guest.
Sophie: No thumbs, Mama.
Mama: Then let me do it my way.
Sophie: Can you hurry up? I’s gots to tinkle.

Thoughts on Lunch

Mama: Whatcha thinking about?
Woodrow: What to have for lunch.
Mama: You don’t eat lunch. You get breakfast and dinner and a snack before bed.
Woodrow: Well, you don’t serve lunch. That doesn’t mean I don’t eat lunch.
Mama: Are you getting into the pantry again?
Woodrow: I will be as soon as I decide what to have for lunch. Try and keep up, Mama!

I caught Woodrow looking in the food cupboard again. He likes to help himself. At least he shares with the others.

Belly Trap!

Sophie: Mama, can you spare three seconds and come rub my belly?
Mama: Three seconds? That’s it?
Sophie: I promise.
Mama: Last time you insisted on 10 minutes. I feel like this is a trap.
Sophie: But the best kind of trap in all of the universe!!

  1. Oh my goodness! Olive was such a cute kitten. Thank you for sharing those photos. I’ve never seen a tortie kitten. We have a twelve-year-old tortie, Tallulah, but we adopted her when she was four.

  2. Little Olive up there… flump! ♥
    Happy 8th Gotcha Day, Olive!
    Thanks for the bonus clicks of little Olive,,, her darling chin. She is one bundle of sweet. I enjoyed the Mama conversations… I can’t get enough of them.

  3. Happy Gotchaversary, Olive! What a sweet little pixie kitten you were, and how elegant you’ve grown up to be!
    (I’m not laying it on too thick…just don’t want to get on her ‘bad’ side…)

  4. OMG, Olive was such a cute baby! Do you still see her that way? Beba is my youngest and the only one in my current clowder who came to me as a lost baby stray. She’s several years old now but I still see a kitten when I look at her!

  5. Olive what a cutie pie baby you were AND what a pretty lady you turned into! It looks like you landed in the right place with such a great family…….and what an exciting week you all had. It’s not easy keeping humans in line is it – but we need a challenge so we don’t get bored!

    Hugs and Happy Celebrating…
    Love, Teddy
