Happy Friday! This week, I watched two documentaries about cats. First up was #cats_the_mewvie on Netflix. While it talks about cats and cat culture, it focuses heavily on Instagram influencers. And while I do have an IG account, I couldn’t identify with any of the people they interviewed. Most (not all) just seem like they want to make money.
Next, I watched Cat Tales on PBS, which is an episode of the show Nova. This episode delved deep into the history of cats, and I found it much more interesting. Note that there are sad parts (in history) that are covered – you have been warned! They also touch on TNR and feature Samantha Martin from The Amazing Acro-Cats! Have you seen either of these documentaries?
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Woodrow: Harley, will you be my valentine?
Woodrow: I said please!
Harley: No you didn’t.
Woodrow: …in my head. Let me finish…I said please in my head.
Woodrow: So, will you be my valentine?
Harley: I said no! Now scram!
Woodrow: Sheesh. ∗whispering∗ I said please.
Sophie demonstrates how to spend a Caturday.
Harley: Mama, did you get my present this morning?
Mama: That was from you?
Harley: Who else would be so thoughtful?
Mama: Is that what we’re calling it?
Harley: I don’t have a lot to work with. You get what you get.
Mama: A piece of poo? That’s what I get?
Harley: Hey, I wrapped it first! Geez, take it or leave it.
Mama: Or don’t give it.
Harley: I’m a thoughtful cat. It’s my burden…I’m a giver.
None of my cats typically have messy litter box habits. But this morning, I found a tootsie roll at the top of the stairs. To be fair, it was completely covered in litter. I questioned the suspects and no one came forward. However, Dexter’s paw pointed to Harley when his back was turned.
Say What You Mean
Mama: Are you on my clean laundry?
Dexter: Why do you ask questions you know the answer to?
Mama: I was trying to get you to move.
Dexter: Be direct, Mama.
Mama: Okay. Will you move?
Dexter: No. See how direct that was?
Olive: Mama, more treat?
Mama: Why don’t you finish what’s on your face first?
Olive: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Mama: Your nose. Your chin.
Olive: Are we just naming things now? Your hand. That treat.
Mama: Fine, here you go.
Olive: We both knew how this would end.
Mama: With a thank you?
Olive: You’re welcome.
Mama: Woodrow, will you move? I’m trying to get a photo of Harley.
Woodrow: Oh, sorry. How’s that?
Mama: A little more to the left.
Woodrow: Can you see him now?
Mama: A little more…
Mama: Woodrow, move! You know you’re in the shot!
Woodrow: I can’t help it. The camera loves me.
Mama: Sophie, what are you planning?
Sophie: What ever do you mean?
Mama: You have that look on your face.
Sophie: It’s my look of love.
Mama: No, you’re about to pounce on Olive.
Sophie: Exactly, I love pouncing on Olive.

Here’s Olive watching an Acro-Cat in training during the Cat Tales episode. Olive was fascinated with much of the show.
Have a wonderful weekend!
