Happy Friday (the 13th)! For some reason, it’s felt like a long week and I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend. Although, it will probably be busy with holiday shopping…and hopefully some cat cuddling!
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Sophie: Mama, have you seen my selfie stick?
Mama: You don’t have a selfie stick.
Sophie: Mama, can I get a selfie stick?
Sophie: THIS! My arms are too short and my face looks huge.
Mama: I think you look cute.
Sophie: Says the human with long arms and perfect selfie-taking abilities. I need a selfie stick!
Mama: You’ll just lose it.
Sophie: How dare you, Mama.
Caturday grumpies with Dexter.
Mama: Why are you staring at your food bowl? It’s not empty.
Olive: But it’s so far away.
Mama: Three feet?
Olive: That’s three human feet. It’s like 236 paws away.
Mama: Are you asking me to bring your food bowl to you?
Olive: Or you could carry me to my bowl. The choice is yours. And Mama?
Olive: Choose wisely.
Harley: Woodrow, it’s MY turn on Mama’s lap.
Woodrow: I just got comfy.
Harley: You’ve been there for an hour!
Woodrow: But Mama was moving and she only just settled. Her lap really isn’t that comfy.
Woodrow: Shhh, Mama. I’m just puttin’ him on.
Harley: I heard that.
Woodrow: Shhh, Harley. I’m just making her feel better.
Mama: Oh thanks, I feel so much better.
Harley: And I still need a lap!
Don’t Means Do
Mama: Sophie, don’t touch the ornament.
Sophie: Do you dare me?
Mama: I said DON’T touch it.
Sophie: Do you double dare me?
Mama: No! I do not double dare you to touch the ornament.
Sophie: Dare accepted!
Santa Watch 2019
Woodrow: Mama, what is everyone doing upstairs? It sounds like they’re having fun without me.
Mama: Go join them.
Woodrow: I can’t. I’m on Santa watch. Dexter nominated me for all shifts.
Mama: I think he’s messing with you. Christmas isn’t for another two weeks.
Woodrow: Exactly! He could be here any moment.
Mama: Woodrow, I’m not sure you know what “week” means.
They love each other so much. ❤
Bonus Friday Photos
Remember that new, comfy chair and a half I bought? All five cats enjoy it, but when four are enjoying it at one time, there’s no room for me! Here’s Woodrow, Olive, Dexter and Sophie.
And here’s Sophie, Dexter, Harley and Olive. I’m squeezed all the way to the left here. But at least I’m on the chair!
Have a wonderful weekend!

oh you can have one of our selfie sticks… we have 3 or 4 (or more) because the mama buys always those what will not fit with her phone
Love the chair and a half pix – I just bet you knew this is how it would turn out when you bought yourself this nice big chair for relaxing…..the cats DO look like they’re relaxing nicely but somehow I think you hoped to figure in there somewhere other than a slim corner!! HAHA Great conversations and pix – Santa Paws will keep the magic going around there soon enough!
Hugs, Pam and Teddy
As cat pawrents, isn’t our whole job making them happy? Looks like you’ve done a good job!

N we wood like ta wish ewe all a merree christmas and a soooper grate 2020; we R offline til then ~~~~~~ ♥♥☺☺
Y’all are just so snugly, cute and purrfect!
Your chair? I thought you bought it for the cats!
Sophie and Dexter’s photos are just too cute! Just gorgeous! You have the most beautiful kitties!
Great photos. Thanks for reminding me it is Friday the 13th.
Sophie does need a selfie stick as her face IS too big! Food should be delivered to within reach of the cat’s TONGUE! Ornaments require constant adjustment due to the WIND moving them out of their proper place! Lap times should be Scheduled! Snuggling is the BEST!
Sophie and Dexter are just too cute together!
I would love to hang out on that chair with your babies! Sophie, do you have any shopping planned this weekend?
Olive, my food walks over to me all the time. Dunno why your human won’t do it. Either Dexter is big or Sophie is smaller than I thought,
Y’all make me laugh every week – thanks! The comfy chair needs reservations weeks in advance apparently – MOL!
Hey Olive, the mom brings me my dish…I have her trained really well. ~Ernie
So I guess you bought the chair for the cats, there’S no other way around this! MOL I just love the vibe going on in your tribe of five household :)
Sophie, no selfie stick needed- you look cute even close up. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Only one more week of being good for Santa :) XO
You guys always make us smile! Sophie, we hope you get a selfie stick from santa. Though Mom is right … you look cute!
WOW! Sophie AND Olive on the same chair? #shocking #TisTheSeason
