Chatty Cats: Gotcha, Toe Beans and More!

Happy Friday! We had quite the full week here. Dexter’s 10th Gotcha Day on Saturday, Father’s Day on Sunday, a vet visit on Monday…I guess just treats and cuddles the rest of the week, but that can still be time-consuming!

Here’s what the cats were up to this week!

Whatcha Got There?

Mama: Hi, you’re pretty close.
Harley: I heard the treat bag.
Mama: Can you back up?
Harley: I’m fine right here.
Mama: You’re standing on my arm. I can’t give you a treat with one hand.
Harley: You can do it. I believe in you, Mama.

Double-Digit Gotcha Day!

Mama: It’s Dexter Day!
Dexter: What’s dat, Mama?
Mama: Today is all about you!
Dexter: Why?
Mama: It’s your 10th Gotcha Day! We’ve reached double digits!
Dexter: That deserves a nose boop. Come ‘ere, Mama. Let’s boop!!

As some may know, we found Dexter as a teeny tiny stray kitten on Father’s Day in June 2010 when we were walking our dog. He became the first cat of the Three Chatty Cats! Happy Gotcha Day, sweet boy.

Lazy Father’s Day

Mama: Want to say Happy Father’s Day to Cat Dad?
Sophie: Does that involve leaving this cocoon of warmth?
Mama: Yes.
Sophie: Can I just shout it to him?
Mama: I guess.
Mama: You’re so thoughtful.
Sophie: He raised me well.

Harley’s Bad Day

Harley: Mama, today is just the worst!
Mama: I know, I’m sorry you had to go to the vet.
Harley: And then I come home and all the blankets on my bed are gone!
Mama: It’s laundry day. And it’s my bed, not yours.
Harley: …
Mama: Sorry, our bed.
Harley: …
Mama: Okay, your bed! The blankets will be done soon.

As some may remember, Harley has chronic kidney disease, so we give him subcutaneous fluids twice a week. He went to the vet today to have his kidney values checked. And unfortunately, we need to increase to three times a week now. He’s a trooper and I’m sure will see it as just an additional treat time during the week.

Tails on Tuesday

Olive: Mama, Dexter’s tail is almost touching me.
Mama: Almost?
Olive: Yes! It almost might touch me.
Mama: And…?
Olive: Move it for me.
Mama: I almost might do that.

Toe Beans!

Mama: Showin’ off your toe beans?
Woodrow: They’re very show-offable.
Mama: Agreed.

Not Lost…or Found?

Mama: Sophie, what are you doing under here?
Sophie: I’m…
Mama: And don’t say looking for your purse.
Sophie: Okay, I won’t.
Mama: … So?
Sophie: Um, I’m confirming this is where my purse is not. Confirmed!

  5. Happy Gotcha Day, Dexter! I hope Sophie finds her purse that she isn’t admitting to losing.

  6. I am sorry that Harley needs more fluids. We were doing Prancie’s twice a day, 50 ml each time. Our vet seemed to think less more often is better- works if kitty is cooperative. Happy Gotcha Day Dexter!!!! XO

  7. Harley, you made uslaugh by getting all up in Mom’s face for those treats!

    We’re sorry to hear your numbers weren’t so good. Our Gracie gets fluids 2X/week, so we understand. But we are glad your mom and dad love you so much and take such good care of you.

  8. Extra Pawkisses for a Happy Gotcha Day sweet Dexter🎉🎉🎉 Healing Pawkisses for Harley. We hope everything will be fine in no-time🙏Thank you for your sweet conversation again, they always put a smile on our faces…and we don’t mind if we have seen them twice sometimes, because they always so funny…MOL…😸Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday to all of you🐾😽💞
