Chatty Cats: Monsters, Fan Mail and More!

Happy Friday! It’s been another average week around here. And by average I mean beautiful weather and beautiful cats. What more could I ask for?

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

Friday Excitement

Dexter: Mama, have you heard?
Mama: Heard what?
Dexter: It’s FRIDAY!!!
Mama: I’m pretty sure the neighbors heard that.
Dexter: Then my work here is done.

Tummy Time Conversion

Mama: Gah! Sophie, you know I hate it when you sit outside my room like that. What are you doing?
Sophie: Oh good, you’re alive. It’s been 5 hours since you last moved.
Mama: I was taking a quick nap. And it’s only been like 30 minutes.
Sophie: 30 minutes feels like 5 hours to my tummy. When’s dinner?
Mama: 30 minutes.

Ceiling Monster

Woodrow: Mama, what IS dat?
Mama: The ceiling fan?
Woodrow: It’s so scary.
Mama: It can’t get you.
Woodrow: Are you sure?
Mama: Pretty sure.
Woodrow: ∗whispering∗ I think it’s gonna get me.
Mama: I’ll turn it off.
Woodrow: Be careful! It might get you, too!

worried tabby cat

Woodrow is afraid of our ceiling fans. When one is on, sometimes he’ll look at it and dart out of the room. Even when they’re off, he’ll sometimes look up to make sure it’s not gonna start moving…and then keep glancing at it every so often. The hubby made the mistake of walking under a ceiling fan today (while it was on) while holding Woodrow. He did not appreciate that and struggled to get down. Poor baby! Does your cat have any random fears like that?

Impatient Tortie

1) Olive’s face at treat time.
2) Licking her lips in anticipation. “Hurry up, Mama!”
3) Taking matters into her own paws. (Look at her little back pawsies. So cute!)

Counter Helper

Mama: Harley! What are you doing on the kitchen counter?
Harley: I thought you might need help with this package.
Mama: I don’t, but thank you.
Harley: You’re welcome. Anything else I can help you with while I’m up here?
Mama: No. You can get down now.
Harley: Okay, I’ll check again later.
Mama: Please don’t.
Harley: But I will.
Mama: I know.

The cats are usually nice enough to jump down from the kitchen counter when they hear me coming. Harley has decided he doesn’t need to do that anymore. In fact, he jumped up on the counter right in front of me while I was opening this package. I watched to see what he’d do (after snapping a photo of course). He walked the entire length of the counter and then back to me. When he didn’t find any snacks or items of interest, he leisurely jumped down and walked away. I guess we know who’s boss in this house. What about your house?

Fan Mail

Dexter: Sophie, have you seen my typewriter? I need to answer some fan mail.
Sophie: How can you lose a typewriter? Maybe you should use email. That’s what I do.
Dexter: Email is so impersonal. My fans appreciate a typed note.
Sophie: Your ONE fan?
Dexter: Yes, my ONE fan. She’s quite special to me and she likes typed notes. Now, I’d appreciate it if you’d call me on my landline if you find my typewriter! Good day!

When the Snooze Hits Hard

Woodrow: Mama, I’m poopy-pooped. I’m gonna close my eyes for a second.
Mama: Okay.
Woodrow: Just one quick second.
Mama: I believe you.
Woodrow: Don’t do anything fun without me.
Mama: Of course not.
Woodrow: Almost done… 💤

Bonus Friday Video

Woodrow just wants to relax in his milk carton but first must defend it from introoders.

Anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend?

  1. HA! Olive is sneaky…..but then she’s still NOT in the milk carton so we know who wins! Teddy has never been on a counter other than the bathroom one where he gets his drink from the sink. I used to say it’s because he’s so big at 22/23 lbs. and he CAN’T jump up but he never has done that even when he was 11 months old when we adopted him. Just not a counter dood I guess! My Angel Sammy was not fond of the ceiling fans. If he joined us on the bed for reading time at night, I had to turn the fan OFF. He was also not a fan of doorbells.

    Hugs, Pam (and Teddy)

  2. Everyone made me laugh all week long – love this blog! BTW, the cats rule at our house, don’t they everyones?!

  3. Happy Friday to you all!!! Hope you are staying cool with this heatwave. These are all just too funny. The Woodrow photo being scared of the ceiling fan is our favorite. Thanks for the share. Have a great upcoming weekend.

  4. I absolutely LOVE that video and you made me laugh about Woodrow being afraid of the fan. I bought a small oscillating fan yesterday to circulate the air conditioning in this heat and last night I noticed Cody would NOT take his eyes off of it. (He had never seen an oscillating fan before)………I was actually afraid he was going to jump on it….he stared at it soooooooooo long. It is next to our wall mounted TV and I had visions of him jumping and knocking everything over. lol. Then, he fell asleep on the stool where he was sitting watching it, I was going to turn the fan off (it was already like 1:30am), but decided to sleep on the couch until Cody left the room because he obviously loved the fan blowing on him. I woke up at around 4, he was gone and I went to my normal bed! lol. Have a great weekend!

  6. Thanks for the glimpse at life in your home. It was so amusing as always. Silly dislikes….yes, Shoko is afraid f anything new. It takes like forever for her to get used to anything new in the house.


  7. Poor Woodrow’s face! We don’t have a ceiling fan but Flynn was scared of the floor standing fan and wouldn’t go near it. Eric loved it and was always laid out in front of it.

  8. Harley, you are a good helper. Poor Woodrow, don’t fear the ceiling fan- it will keep you cool. Olive and Sophie, clearly treats are important to you. Have a great weekend. XO

  9. MOL…you always have the best conversations :D I love to see the species dancing on the ceiling, but I don’t care about the ceiling fans, Woodrow😸Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend to all of you🐾😽💞

  10. Very enjoyable post! It’s nice to hear from everyone – we have company at our house and share our opinions on that at Zee & Zoey’s!

  11. Wait! Cats come second to weather?!?! Woodrow and Ellie are so similar – which means either they’ll get along wonderfully or hate each other. Though I don’t think it’s in eithers nature to hate anything.
