Happy Friday! Did you have a good week? The exciting news in our house is that the cats got a new scratcher. I know, I know…whoa, so much excitement! But it’s a hit. Olive is claiming it as her own. And Sophie wants no comments on how well she fills it in.
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Mama: What’s up?
Woodrow: Are you almost done working?
Woodrow: I need a lap to cuddle in ASAP.
Mama: Okay, well I’m not quite done yet.
Woodrow: I’ll wait right here for you. Please hurry, Mama!
Woodrow was meowing behind me and I turned around. His face says it all. Stop working! Pet me!
Caturday in the Catio
Caturday morning in the catio. Sophie is enjoying the fresh air before it gets too hot outside (mid-90s expected today), while Woodrow wonders how to get into the catio. (The entrance is to your left, Woodrow!) What are you and your cats up to today?
Mama: Wanna take a Sunday selfie?
Mama: But your friends want to see you.
Harley: Fine. ∗click∗
Mama: Wow, could you have put any less effort in?
Sophie: Mama, are you still mad at me? I said I’m sorry.
Mama: How many times have I told you that lizards stay outside?
Sophie: But it was really hot out yesterday! I thought he might want to come in for a bit and cool off.
Mama: In your mouth?
Sophie: No, in your office. That’s why I brought him to you. Wasn’t he cute? I named him Franklin. I think we’re BFFs now.
Sophie was kind enough to bring a lizard to my office yesterday afternoon. I saw her walk into the room and something was sticking out of her mouth (its tail). She dropped it and luckily it stayed put. I screamed for Ross (yes, I know, but lizards freak me out). Sophie sensed she was about to lose her friend and picked it back up and ran downstairs. She dropped it in the dining room and Ross was able to get the little fella back outside. Sophie was very gentle with it and Ross saw no evidence of teeth marks. It didn’t even drop its tail, which has happened before when she brings them inside. Sometimes they venture into the catio, which is how she caught it. Hopefully, Franklin learned his lesson! Do your cats bring you anything?
When you sleep through Monday…
Olive: Okay, Mama. I’m all rested up and ready to tackle Monday.
Mama: It’s Tuesday.
Olive: Okay, Mama. I’m all rested up and ready to tackle the week.
Dexter: Mama, have you had that talk with Sophie about personal space?
Mama: Not yet. Don’t you like cuddling with her?
Dexter: Cuddling, yes. Feet in my face? No. Her feet smell like cheese, Mama! Like a really gross Blue Stilton. ∗whispering∗ Help me.
Poor Dexter. Everywhere he turns, Sophie’s feet are right there. He can’t escape them!
Mama: ∗sigh∗ Kitty paws. ❤
Bonus Friday Photo
Look, it’s a family photo! I don’t think I’ve ever captured all 6 at one time. And of course, Sophie being Sophie.
Have a wonderful weekend!
