Happy Friday! Some may have seen on social media that Harley went to the vet last week for an unplanned visit. Please know that he’s stable for now and has been all week – and I’ll let everyone know what’s going on after another test that is scheduled for later in the month. He thanks everyone for the well wishes!
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Woodrow: Harley, are you feeling better yet?
Harley: Yeah, I think so.
Woodrow: Good! Taking care of you is exhausting. You’re so needy. Fluff my pillow, brush my tail, feed me treats, refresh my water. Blah, blah, blah.
Harley: What are you TALKING about? You said all that, not me!
Woodrow: Oh, my bad. Where are you on fluffing my pillow?
I took Harley to the vet unexpectedly yesterday afternoon. He vomited up his entire meal and then drank a LOT of water throughout the day. Then he couldn’t keep the water down (note the towel covering the chair). At the vet, we did a full senior exam and bloodwork (results not back yet). During the exam, nothing noticeable came up. They gave him a shot to help with nausea and he hasn’t vomited since. Woodrow rarely sleeps near Harley like this. He must be taking his nurse duties seriously. Although he’s sleeping on the job, so who knows.
Thank You, Lexy and Lola!
Mama: Sophie, have you found your purse yet?
Sophie: No teasing, Mama. You know I haven’t.
Mama: Well, look what your friends Lexy and Lola sent you. It’s a little purse!
Sophie: ∗gasp∗ For me?
Mama: For you! But don’t lose it.
Sophie: I won’t, I promise. As soon as I find my other purse, I’ll put this one in it for safe keeping.
Thank you so much to our blogging buddies Lola The Rescued Cat for sending Sophie this purse. She is so excited and loves how soft it is. She rubbed all over it for a good 5 minutes. And now she insists on carrying it on her back everywhere so the other cats know it’s hers. I give her 2 days until she loses it. What’s everyone else think?
Woodrow waits. Dexter snoops. Harley handsomes. Olive yawns (#blooper). Sophie grooms. How was your Sunday?
Olive: Mama, you have something on your face. Right here.
Mama: Did I get it?
Olive: Oh wait, sorry, that’s just your face.
Olive: Um, you look beautiful, Mama.
Mama: Thank you.
Olive: ∗whispering∗ For a Monday.
Mama: I heard that!
Olive: I love you, Mama!! And not just on Mondays!
Sound the Alarm!
Woodrow: A-wooga! A-wooga!
Mama: What’s going on?
Woodrow: Sound the alarm, Mama! Introoder alert!
Mama: Oh, Tux? He’s just saying hi.
Woodrow: I got my eye on you, Tux! Don’t make me come down there.
Mama: You’re not allowed outside.
Woodrow: Mama!!! Don’t embarrass me in front of Tux!
A bit of excitement this afternoon! The windows are open (enjoying some nice fall weather), and Woodrow spotted an intruder…on top of our catio! Tux, the neighbor cat, hopped our six-foot fence onto our catio roof! Needless to say, Woodrow was huffing and puffing in the upstairs window. I promptly closed it (for his safety) and Tux left the yard.
That’ll cost ya!
Dexter: Mama, could you use a head bonk?
Mama: Yes, please.
Dexter: How about one bonk for two treats?
Mama: I didn’t realize this was a negotiation.
Dexter: Now you do. So, how about it?
Woodrow: Mama, can I please have a treat?
Mama: Not until after lunch.
Mama: No whining.
Woodrow: But I said pleaaase!!!
Bonus Friday Video
I was at Disneyland the other weekend and I finally spotted one of the infamous Disneyland Cats (I’ve lived here for years without seeing one)! Disney takes care of feral cats that live in Disneyland and the neighboring park Disney California Adventure (DCA). They TNR the cats, vaccinate them and provide designated feeding areas throughout the parks. I spotted this beauty at DCA. It was about six in the evening on a Saturday and she was grooming away.
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
