Chatty Cats: Singing, Selfies and More!

Happy Friday! Yesterday, we celebrated another gotcha gay – Dexter’s 9th! You may remember that we celebrated Olive’s gotcha day a couple weeks ago. We found both Dexter and Olive as strays in the month of June – Dexter nearly one year before Olive. I shared Olive’s kitten photos last time…so here are a few of little Dexter.

And now…here’s what the cats were up to this week!

Sing it, Dexter!

Mama: Oh my, what crazy whiskers you have, Dexter!
Dexter: 🎶 Thank youuu-ooo-ooo! 🎶

Selfies with Woodrow

Mama: Woodrow, why are there 63 photos of you on my phone?
Woodrow: I was taking a selfie.
Mama: 63 times?
Woodrow: Practice makes perfect.
Mama: But they’re all blurry.
Woodrow: I’m still practicing. Obvi.

Guard Cat

Harley: Mama, put that brush on the floor and walk away slowly.
Mama: You need a brushing.
Harley: Walk away, Mama. Or else I send in the muscle.
Mama: The muscle?
Harley: Sophie…attack!

Do your cats like being brushed? The only one of ours that likes it is tortie Olive. Sophie will tolerate it, but isn’t a fan like Olive who will flop over on her side when being brushed. Harley lashes out and bites the brush, then runs away. We’re working on it.

Dramatic Cat

Sophie: Mama, turn on the heat!
Mama: It’s 68 degrees outside.
Sophie: Exactly! It’s freezing! Like, literally freezing.
Mama: Should we discuss the word literally? Also, the definition of freezing?
Sophie: ∗teeth chattering∗ Too…cold…to…talk.

I couldn’t find Sophie this afternoon. I finally found her under a blanket on the bed – by almost sitting on her. Really, it’s not that cold out!

No Patience

Mama: Olive, wanna treat?
Olive: ∗slurp slurp slurp∗
Mama: Hold on, I can’t squeeze that fast.
Olive: GIVE ME DA TREAT!

Oh, Woodrow

Woodrow: There’s a hair in my food.
Sophie: Is it your own?
Woodrow: ∗nibble nibble∗ Yes.
Sophie: You didn’t have to eat it.
Woodrow: You should have called savesies if you wanted it.

Mini Dexter

Dexter: Mama, I’m mini size!
Mama: I thought I’d do a little #TBT in honor of your 9th Gotcha Day.
Dexter: Okay, but don’t forget to biggify me when you’re done. I’m super adorbs all mini and stuff, but I prefer my current size. Bigger belly, more room for all the treats I deserve today (and every day).

cute tabby kitten

We found Dexter as a stray kitten on Father’s Day back in June 2010 when we were walking our dog. The tiny kitten was outside in the hot California sun and had a big gash on his lip – and weighed all of 12 ounces. Ross scooped him up in a towel and we quickly got him inside from the 100+ degree heat! He was our first cat and now we’ve added four more to the household. Kitten Dexter started it all! Happy Gotcha Day, Dexter!

Bonus Friday Bloopers

Here are some blooper shots of Olive. She loves those Churu treats. As you can see!


We hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

  1. Awwww Dexter – what a lucky little dood you were that you were rescued from the HOT and now have such a wonderful life…..same for Olive who found her forever the same way. Gosh – we’re all so lucky and I know you join me in wishing ALL kitties and pups who need a forever could be so lucky!!! Happy GOTCHA Dexter!

    Hugs, Teddy

  2. Both my resident cats looooooove being brushed. The head of our brush is a little bit loose. I just shake it and they come running — sometimes faster than for treats!
    Oh, Sophie. You *really* don’t know what cold is my pretty girl! ;-)

  3. Beba LOVES being brushed!! So much so that I tap her brush (a human “detangler” brush) to get her to come to me. Skritches has taken to it too but she’s blind so I can’t use it to attract her. Adam is okay with brushing. Princess Cuddlebutt, who needs it the most due to loooong matted fur, HAAAAATES being brushed!!

    Dexter was adorable kitten!!

  4. Happy Gotcha Day Dexter! I am glad you gotcha’d such a loving home. Almost all my cats like being brushed with the exception of KaTwo, Jinx and Brody.

  5. Dexter, that little baby pink tummy! Happy Gotcha Day! I’m a day late but the happy wish is still there. Olive’s blooper pictures with tongue stickie outie ♥
    Enjoyed these Mama conversations, they really are fun and make me smile!… and laugh!

  6. Happy Gotcha Day, Dexter! Wene though you had to have a bath on your first day, you found a purrfect loving home. :)
