Chatty Cats: Watch Duty, Hank and More!

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!

Watch Duty

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.
Mama: Sorry.
Woodrow: That’s okay. So to be clear…are you handing out treats downstairs?

Personal Space

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?!?

Hank

Olive: Mama!
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.

chatty tortie cat

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.

Tabby Tuesday

It’s Tabby Tuesday! Which handsome tabby is this – Dexter or Woodrow?

Long Day

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: 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!
Dexter: ∗giggles∗

  1. Happy to hear you will be continuing the Friday “Roundup” with this crew! I really do enjoy your conversations with them and tuning in to find out if Sophie will EVER find her purse…..haha You all stay happy and healthy…….THAT makes all of us happy!

    Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too)

  2. Happy to hear you will consider continuing the recaps. They brighten every Friday morning for me.

    It sounds like Sophie is teaching Olive some not-so-good tricks. If Olive starts carrying a purse, be very worried.

  3. You get lizards brought in, I used to get mice!
    Good to hear you will mostly still be here on Fridays.

  4. Oh man are we jealous that you have catio access! It’s still chilly and rainy but we are looking forward to some neighborhood snoopervising soon!

  5. Are you saying you get to eat cream cheese on a bagel at all?! I end up with some happy cats and a very cream cheeseless bagel – MOL! Sooooo glad you are still blogging!

  6. I am on the East coast and you would hear me scream in California if there were a lizard in my house :) Nice to see all you cuties. XO

  7. It looks like you are all staying really busy – with the lizards, treats, and all. I hope you were able to keep Hank outside! One of the nice things about Michigan is that we don’t get lizards very often. I think Manna and Dexter would be just as excited as your kitties are though.

  9. We don’t have lizzards, but I’m sure I would like Hank…MOL…OMC that video was double cute, Sophie. You don’t want to see it anymore, huh…We hope you continue the conversations, they’re so much fun. We enjoy them every time we see them here, or on Ig😺Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday and week ahead. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞
