Harley’s Spot

Harley: ∗whispering∗ ‘Scuse me, Mama?
Mama: Whoa, coming in close there.
Harley: You’ve been napping in my spot for 30 minutes now.
Mama: It’s been 15 minutes.
Harley: Feels more like 30.
Mama: Well, the clock says 15.
Harley: Well, I can’t read. My mama never taught me.
Mama: ∗sigh∗ I’m getting up.


Mama: Whatcha doing?
Dexter: Don’t make any sudden movements, Mama.
Mama: Okay.
Dexter: Shhh…
Mama: What’s going on?
Dexter: ECK ECK ECK!!!

Deep in Thought

Mama: Whatcha doing in the closet?
Olive: Just having a think.
Mama: About what? Life? Love?
Olive: I’m gonna be honest, Mama. I’m thinking about treats.

Miss Manners

Mama: Sophie, get off my puzzle.
Sophie: You didn’t say please.
Mama: Please.
Sophie: Please what?
Mama: Please get off my puzzle.
Sophie: Maybe in a bit.
Mama: But I said please.
Sophie: And I thank you for that, Mama. Manners are so important. Especially these days.

Lunch Buddy

Woodrow: Hold still, Mama. I haz spotted something on your plate.
Mama: It’s my lunch.
Woodrow: Don’t worry, I will neutralize the threat.
Mama: Don’t touch my food.
Woodrow: Please bring the plate closer to my neutralizer and I shall chomp it to pieces.

Depending on what I’m eating, Woodrow will sit behind me and hover. Sometimes he swats at my hand to try and get the food. Last time he did that, I turned and blew on his face to back him up. And yes, he then swatted my face to tell me that was very rude. Are your cats this pushy?

Online Shopping

Dexter: Mama, is it Friday yet?
Mama: Almost. Hard week?
Dexter: No, the cat treats I ordered arrive on Friday.
Mama: What cat treats?
Dexter: The ones I got online because we can’t go out. Keep up, Mama!
Mama: I thought I hid my credit card.
Dexter: I used your Amazon points.
Mama: I was saving those!
Dexter: Use ’em or lose ’em, Mama.

Bonus Friday Photo

Guess what! This week, a Facebook follower shared with us a photo of their new rescue cat. They named him Woodrow in honor of our Lovable Dum Dum! Our Woodrow is over the moon and refers to this fella as The Other Magnificently Handsome Woodrow. Thanks to cat mom Rhonda for sharing your adorable new rescue kitty with us!

  1. I see the cats are keeping you entertained as usual……that was a heck of a puzzle you did – and without having any pieces wind up “missing” thanks to curious kitty residents! Teddy has NEVER been even remotely interested in human food of any kind. I think in the time we’ve had our guy he MIGHT have taken a sniff at something on my plate but has never had a “drop” or a “chunk” of anything we’ve ever eaten. Weird huh? Happy Friday and weekend – full of adventurous cats and perhaps another puzzle?

    Hugs, Pam (and Human-foodless Teddy)

  2. Thank goodness for online jigsaw puzzles, otherwise I’d never get to play…Manny and CB would be all over it, all day and all night! And I’m sure they’d chew the pieces.

  3. Woodrow is so funny!😸 I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cat 🐱 sir like that!😹!
    All your little ones are so adorable and full of mischief…just like they ought to be!😸
    And the New Woodrow is quite handsome too!☺💕😻
    Have a blessed week sweetheart 😘😻!Drea🐾🐾🐾

  4. Flynn used to sit like that a lot when he washed his tummy too, Woodrow. Do I see a little pink patch where you bathe too vigorously? Flynn had one of them too!

  5. Good job shopping Dexter, don’t want to lose points. Congrats on completing the puzzle, that was a big one. Stay healthy. XO

  6. Woodrow’s knees!!! How cute! TW marvels that you did a puzzle with cats around, not that I’d do anything to run any she started. Concats! I’ll eat things out of TW’s hand or off her fork if she doesn’t eta fast enough. Heh heh. Tinight she was rude and wouldn’t let me on the table cos she said she’d just disinfected it.

  7. We agree with Woodrow, being blowed in the face is rude : you deserved a little slap, human ! It was nice to meet the new Woodrow, he’s cute too ! Purrs

  8. MOL…I’ve seen that pose before, but we still have to, Woodrow… MOL.. You all are marvellous kitties with excellent conversations😹I’m glad you didn’t mix up the puzzle into pieces, kitties🙀Very well done on the big puzzle😺Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞
