Chatty Cats: Shyness, Presents and More!

Happy Friday! As you’ll read below, it’s been a long week. I imagine returning from a trip, no matter how short, always makes the next week feel a little long. Here’s to hoping that the weekend doesn’t feel too short!

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

Shy Sophie

Grandpa: Are you coming out of there?
Sophie: Are the parental units home?
Grandpa: No.
Sophie: Pass.
Sophie loves our regular cat sitter, but she isn’t so keen on Ross’ dad when he comes to stay with them. The report is that he hasn’t seen her yet, but she’s coming out to eat (thanks to the microchip feeders, he knows that much).

Bad Mama

Woodrow: You’re back, I see. Where were you?
Mama: We went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in San Francisco.
Woodrow: Did you bring me a chocolate wand?
Mama: I may or may not have eaten it on the car ride home.
Woodrow: Mama!!! You’re always eating my presents!
Mama: I’m pretty sure this was the first time.
Woodrow: Well, now I’m going to eat something of yours tonight and see how you like it.
Mama: That’s fair.

The cats were happy to see us when we got home, even if we were empty-handed. Sophie was the most excited and demanded pets before we even put our bags down. (Btw, if you’re a Harry Potter fan, this play is a must-see!)

Another round of Sunday snuggles! These two love each other so much. ❤️

She Did?

Harley: ∗gasp∗
Mama: What is it?
Harley: Olive said that Dexter said that Woodrow said that Sophie found her purse!
Mama: ∗gasp∗
Harley: But then Olive said that Dexter said that Woodrow is a liar.
Mama: So, she didn’t find her purse?
Harley: Let me ask Olive.
Mama: Never mind!

Those Ears

Mama: Sophie, your ears are so pink!
Sophie: All the better to hear you with.
Mama: That makes no sense.
Sophie: What? I couldn’t hear you.
Mama: Hardy-har-har.
Sophie: Teehee.

Is It Friday Yet?

Woodrow: Mama, is it Friday yet?
Mama: Almost.
Woodrow: What about now?
Mama: Not yet.
Woodrow: Now?
Mama: Woodrow, Friday is tomorrow. Hold on just a little bit longer.
Woodrow: How much longer? This much?
Mama: Yes, exactly that much. 🤷‍♀️

Bonus Friday Photos

Sophie and Dexter cuddle all the time. I mean all. the. time. Here are a few more photos from a recent cuddle session (not the same one as above – they cuddle in similar positions – that leg!).

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Such adorable kids! Sweet photos for sure….even Shy Sophie hiding from Grandpa. I’m sure they were thrilled to have you back home again even without a chocolate wand. Glad you enjoyed the play!

    Hugs, Pam

  2. love the way you said what one said to another… that is the way the mama started a conversation what ended either with BUT I WANT IT! or ALL have/can do that … and I’m the only one who caaaan’t!

  3. Sophie and Dexter are so cute together! I find the same thing with Manny and CB; I love to snap photos of them napping together, then I look at the photos and see I’m capturing the same set up time and time again! I revel in the subtle differences.

  4. Sophie and Dexter are so darn cute and adorable. I love it when kitties cuddle- none of mine do. Sophie, you should get to know Grandpa= he will spoil you. And Woodrow, sorry about your mom eating your gift. I could crochet you a golden snitch :) Have a nice weekend. XO

  5. Wait, is it true??? Sophie found her purse? We need to know!

    We love seeing her and Dexter cuddling. That is so cute.

  6. those snuggly photos are the cutest ever! Don’t feel bad about coming home empty handed, I have done that sooo many times! Glad you had a super great time!

  7. fyi: I just saw that the New Beverly Cinema (Bev Hills/Hollywood) will be showing the various Harry Potter films starting on Feb 1. Looks like 2 afternoon (2pm) screenings for each film… though I didn’t really look closely.

  8. I love the gossip train MOL and those Sophie and Dexter cuddle piles reminds me of our crew. Mr. Jack will cuddle with Scout, but they also practice purr-jitsu. Then without fail, every morning Ollie and Charlie will cuddle for hours, then in the afternoon, it’s cuddle time with his brother Baggie. I hope Sophie warms up to Opa someday! :)
