Happy Friday! There’s not much to update for the week since, you know, there’s not much going on. Today marks the 30th day of our “safer at home” order in California. It’s pretty hard to believe we’ve been home for so long, but it definitely seems to be helping in our state. I hope everyone out there is doing well and staying safe!
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Woodrow’s Many Faces
Woodrow: OMG, Mama! This is the longest week ever!
Mama: What’s with your face?
Woodrow: This is my longest-week-ever face.
Mama: Ah, okay.
Woodrow: And my TGIF face.
Woodrow: And my pass-the-popcorn face.
Mama: Got it.
Woodrow: And my someone-tooted face.
Woodrow: And my it-was-me face.
Sorta Sweet Harley
Mama: Have you moved today?
Mama: So, no?
Harley: Don’t need to. I have everything I need right here.
Mama: You have nothing here. No food, no litter, no water.
Harley: I have my Mama. You’re all I need…
Mama: Aww, that’s so sweet.
Harley: …because you’ll bring me whatever I want whenever I want it.
Mama: Annnd there it is.
Mama: What are you doing?
Sophie: Getting a big whiff of my dinner. I like to really savor it.
Mama: I see.
Sophie: And then I go in for the chomp. Like dis!
Can you tell the two tabby boys apart? I’m often asked if Dexter and Woodrow are related. They are not. We found Dexter as a 4-week-old kitten in 2010. We adopted Woodrow in 2017, and he’s a couple of years younger than Dexter. But here’s how to tell them apart…Dexter almost always has resting grumpy face. (And he’s the smaller of the two.) Unfortunately, they don’t usually get along, so these photos from today are pretty special to this cat mama. 😊
Mama: Fangless roars are the cutest!
Olive: Come closer and say that.
Mama: ∗moves closer∗ Fangless roars are the cutest!
Shoes and Pants
Handsome Harley: Hi, Mama.
Mama: So, you go by Handsome Harley now?
Handsome Harley: If the slipper fits.
Mama: You mean shoe?
Handsome Harley: You haven’t worn shoes in 4 weeks.
Mama: At least I still wear pants.
Handsome Harley: That should be a given. No bonus points awarded.
Sophie: Dexter and Olive are having fun down in the catio. I told them, no fun allowed when I’m not there!
Mama: What are you gonna do about it?
Sophie: I’m gonna send you down there to break up the fun.
Mama: Not happening.
Sophie: Ugh! No one does what I say!
You can see the catio from upstairs in the house. And when the window is open, all the sounds of fun come in. Sometimes Sophie will race down the stairs and dash into the catio as if she’s missing out.
Bonus Friday Bloopers
For today’s bonus photos, I present you with awkward yawning.
Stay safe, everyone!
