Chatty Cats: Crushes, Gotcha Day and More!

Happy Friday! Do you want to know what one of the best feelings in the world is? Waking up in the middle of the night with a cat cuddled in the crook of your arm. Thank you, Dexter!

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

Huntress Kitty

Olive: The fierce tortie huntress stalks silently across the terrain in search of her next meal, her hunting skills unparalleled.
Mama: You’re going the wrong way, Olive. Your food dish is over here.
Olive: The fierce tortie huntress makes a sharp u-turn, still mapping the contours of this unfamiliar terrain.

Undercover Kitty

Sophie: Pee-yew! Someone has stinky feet.
Mama: I’m sure you’re not talking about my feet.
Sophie: I’m sure I am.
Mama: Then maybe get out from under my blanket.
Sophie: Maybe get some foot deodorant.
Mama: I didn’t hear that.
Sophie: Well, I said it pretty loudly!

Sophie likes to climb under the blanket at the end of the bed. She’s our only cat that enjoys being under the blankets. Dexter will climb under if he’s scared, but Sophie climbs under just because (like she did this morning). Does your cat enjoy being under the blankets?

Neighborhood Kitty

Harley: Mama, get my binoculars!
Mama: Spying on the neighborhood kitty again?
Harley: He’s sniffing our plants. OUR plants, Mama! How can you be okay with that?
Mama: I better go outside and see if kitty wants some pets.
Harley: Traitor! Don’t touch him, Mama. Don’t you do it!
Mama: I’m pretty sure it’s a female.
Harley: Well this changes everything…be still my beating heart.

handsome Siamese cat

There’s a new kitty outside in the neighborhood. Black and white, very pretty. I don’t know who it belongs to, but he (she?) is well-fed, clean, not afraid of people, and clearly not a stray. I’ve caught our cats watching closely through the window.

Gotcha Day Kitty

Mama: Happy Gotcha Day, Woodrow!
Woodrow: Thanks, Mama! Same to you!
Mama: No, I gotcha you. It’s your gotcha day.
Woodrow: But I gotcha you too! We gotcha each other, Mama!
Mama: Aww, you’re so sweet.

Alarm Clock Kitty

Mama: What’s wrong, Dexter?
Dexter: My alarm went off, but it’s so early.
Mama: Why’d you set an alarm?
Dexter: I’ve got a busy day at work and those spreadsheets aren’t gonna format themselves!
Mama: So you’re the one messing with my keyboard!
Dexter: I think you mean increasing office productivity.
Mama: Stay off my computer.
Dexter: Fine, I’ll cover the phones. Is lunch being catered today? If so, I’ll take tuna on rye.

Rescued Kitty

Sophie: Hands off, Mama! I can do it myself!
Mama: Okay.
Sophie: ∗grunt∗ ∗reach∗ ∗sigh∗
Mama: ∗smiles∗
Sophie: Mama?
Mama: Yes?
Sophie: I can’t reach da button.
Mama: That’s okay, selfies are hard.

Forgetful Kitty

Olive: Mama, is it treat time?
Mama: You know the treat schedule.
Olive: I forgot it.
Mama: I find that hard to believe.
Olive: Well, I find your lack of treat distribution hard to believe.

  1. You all are so darn cute! Sounds and looks like a most eventful week – GOTCHA celebration, stinky feets, under blankie time, on the trail of treats – – never a dull moment is there! We like it that way too.

    Hugs, Teddy

  2. Have to keep an eye on those outdoor cats as you never know what trouble they may get into which needs reporting! Happy Gotcha Day Woodrow! Hope you have fun! Those food bowls do need stalking, as they may move away when you are not looking! Happy Friday! 😺

  3. You are all so darn cute. Happy Gotcha Day Woodrow!! Sophie, I am sure your mama’s feet don’t smell, it is probably your Dad :) Joanie likes to be under the covers and Phoebe used to when it was raining. Have a wonderful weekend! XO

  4. Happy Gotcha Day, Woodrow! you are all so cute.
    Flynn used to get under the covers and cuddle into the back of my knees. Eric would go partway in between me and hubby and leave his butt out between our heads.
