Happy Friday! Did everyone have a nice short work week in the US? I hope so! And now we’ve arrived at another Friday and another weekend. I’m off for a quick night away with a friend to see a show out of town. Cat Dad will be on cat care duties. Harley and Dexter are a little apprehensive. Sophie knows he’ll pull through. Olive could care less. And Woodrow has no clue what’s going on.
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Labor Day Weekend Plans
Mama: Are you excited for the three-day weekend?
Olive: Yep! I’m gonna eat Sophie’s treats, frolic in the litter box, and lick your toast when you’re not looking.
Mama: I didn’t realize a holiday weekend allows for being naughty.
Olive: Oh, that’s nothing. You should hear what Woodrow has planned.
Mama: What does he have planned?
Olive: Let’s just say you better hide all the spoons. And stock up on AAA batteries!
Mama: Sophie, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first?
Sophie: Good news.
Mama: Okay, well-
Sophie: No! Bad news.
Sophie: No! Good news first. Bad news first. Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…
Mama: Ross, can you bring me the kitty jump starter kit? I broke Sophie again.
Sophie: So then I says…I says to Woodrow, no YOUR pants are on backwards!
Dexter: Help me, Mama.
Sophie: OMG! Maybe you just had to be there, but it was so LOL. Classic Woodrow!
Labor Day Whiffies
Mama: Whatcha doing, Woodrow?
Woodrow: Getting in some window whiffies before my big day.
Mama: It’s Labor Day. I hope you don’t plan on working too hard.
Woodrow: My plan is to eat, nap, eat, nap, do some online shopping, eat, nap and then turn in for the night.
Mama: Sounds like a lot of eating and napping.
Woodrow: Don’t pretend you’re not gonna do the same.
Game Night Prep
Mama: Doing a little grooming?
Harley: If you must know, I’m practicing for my game night on Friday with Olive. We’re playing Twister. That twisty tortie has beat me four times in a row!
Mama: I see. Well, good luck.
Harley: It’s not about luck, Mama. It’s about practice. But I swear, if I get back paw, green dot, left whisker, red dot again…then I know Olive’s rigging the game! That combination just doesn’t happen. It just doesn’t, Mama!
Olive: Mama, look what I found!!!
Mama: Get off the counter.
Olive: But Mama, look what I found!!!
Mama: I heard you. You’re not supposed to be on the counter. Especially not by the open treat jar.
Olive: I think perhaps this is the greatest find in all that has ever been found. History books will be written about this moment. Schools will be named after me!
I turned my back for one second and Olive found the treat jar. Surprisingly, she just stared at it – as if she couldn’t believe what she’d stumbled upon – an OPEN treat jar!
No Rest for Mama
Dexter: Mama, let’s not get out of bed today.
Mama: I have to.
Mama: Someone’s gotta earn money.
Mama: Cat treats aren’t free.
Dexter: Buh-bye, Mama. Enjoy your day.

Dexter takes flight. Notice Woodrow’s shadow watching him.

you tried to mesmerize that treats that they fly into your mouth… so you can not be blamed right?
I agree……I think Olive is WILLING those treats to levitate into her mouth – she looks like she’s doing a good job of concentration! Is that cat jump-starter kit available on Chewy or Amazon? I might need one…….have a great weekend!
Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
😹 Amazon has everything, but I think these kids are sold out.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall of your house!
That could be dangerous since Dexter and Olive love to chase sky raisins! 😹
Cool picture of Dexter… Woodrow is probably wondering what the heck! Thank you for another week of happiness and laughs with the Chatty Cats. Love this blog, Mama, Olive, Dexter, Sophie, Woodrow, and Harley. And Cat Dad, too!
Your cats are so much more articulate than mine! *jealous*
Have fun on your night away! Here’s hoping that Sophie was brought back to life again!
Y’all sure had big plans for the short week! That’s some epic flying Dexter!

Have fun at the show! Best of luck to Dad – MOL!
Super great bonus pic! Good work Olive! Don’t just stand there, knock it over cos you can’t get your snout in there. I hope you fix Sophie by next week.
I hope all Harley’s practice helps him win at Twister! That’s a great leap, Dexter.
Sounds like your Labor Day was pretty much like ours! Have a great weekend!
An open treat jar! I love Olive’s look! Amarula would not have been so slow to act I think!
Every single one of these is priceless, but the Twister one just killed me!
You all make me smile. Woodrow, glad you managed to squeeze in online shopping on your holiday- gotta keep the economy going :) Hope your mama has fun with her friend and you all get to party with your dad. XO
That’s some jump, Dexter, absolutely fantastic😺Great conversations again too💗Pawkisses for a Happy Caturday🐾😽💞
Olive’s treat photo and Flying Dexter are just the BEST!!
Ha! We wonder what Woodrow ended up getting into over the long weekend. That flying Dexter photo is pawsome!
Broken Sophie is just hilarious MOL. And Olive’s shock at the treat discovery, she reminds me so much of Scout. It’s always a treat reading the Chatty Cats’ stories. xx
You guys really crack us up! Our mom looks forward to your daily Instagram chats!
