Happy Friday! First off, thanks for all of the supportive comments last week when I said I wasn’t sure if I’d continue with these Friday recaps. I’m dropping in today with another one and will do my best to keep posting them. But if I skip a week, don’t be surprised… although I think the cats would be mad at me. So, we’ll see how it goes.
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Woodrow is on neighborhood watch duty this Friday evening. He’s counted three birds, three lizards and three pizza deliveries. I asked him how many siblings he has and he said three. This confirms my suspicion that Woodrow has yet to learn to count higher than three. (The correct answer is four siblings, five if you include our dog.) Happy Friday, friends!
The Woodrow Effect
Harley: What’s dat?
Mama: What’s what?
Harley: I hear crinkling downstairs. Are you handing out treats?
Mama: How could I be? I’m right here. That was a little Woodrow of you.
Woodrow: Hey! I heard that.
Woodrow: That’s okay. So to be clear…are you handing out treats downstairs?
Sophie: Whatcha got there?
Mama: Bagel and cream cheese.
Sophie: Looks yummy.
Mama: It’s so yummy.
Sophie: Maybe I’ll try that cream cheese.
Mama: Maybe you won’t.
Sophie: Maybe just a lick.
Mama: Back up.
Sophie: Bring it closer, I can’t reach from here!
Mama: Have you heard of personal space?
Sophie: Have you heard of sharing?!?
Mama: What’s up?
Olive: Why is Hank outside?
Mama: Who’s Hank?
Olive: Right there!
Mama: That lizard?!?
Olive: Yeah, Sophie brought him in so we could play.
Mama: How many times have I told you guys? Lizards stay outside!
Olive: You stay here. I’ll go get him.
It’s that time of year…now that the catio is open, I’m bound to find a lizard inside. I came downstairs the other morning and saw something odd hanging on our fireplace screen. It was a lizard with the longest tail ever! Very snake like. 😳 Yes, it was still alive, so Ross put it outside. I blame Sophie, but I wouldn’t put it past Olive.
It’s Tabby Tuesday! Which handsome tabby is this – Dexter or Woodrow?
Sophie: Oh boy, what a day!
Mama: Long day?
Sophie: It started with a 3am zoomie dash down the hallway after my morning litter box visit. Followed up by some yowling at 3:30. Then a snoozie before waking you up at 4:30 for my breakfast. Did a quick search for my purse at 7:15. Spoiler alert, I didn’t find it. Got some catio time in mid-morning. Chased a lizard. Watched a birdie. Then inside for a quick pounce on Olive, followed by another snoozie. Snack time, then snoozie time, then snack time, then snoozie time, then…
Mama: Okay! So a long day!
Sophie: That only takes me up to noon. If you’re gonna ask a question, let me answer!
Dexter: Did you get the shot?
Dexter: Why do you take so many photos?
Mama: Because you’re so darn cute!
Dexter: Then why do you take so many of Woodrow?
Mama: Ohhh, burn!
