Well, we’ve arrived at another Friday. I hesitate to say my usual “Happy Friday” because of the news I have to share. We said goodbye to Eddie last week. Here’s what I shared on Facebook over the weekend:
Eddie ran off to the rainbow bridge on Friday. He shared 17 years of his life with us and was our first pet. Eddie played big brother to three cats — and more recently tolerated our last two additions. We adopted Eddie on June 22, 2003. We said goodbye on July 3, 2020. He had a long, full life – and we miss him terribly. RIP, Eddie. (Grass photo is one week after we adopted him. Bow tie photo is after one of his last grooming sessions this year.)
Here’s what the cats were up to this (sad) week.
Mama: What are you doing?
Woodrow: Giving you my best can-I-haz-some-of-your-food look. Is it working?
Mama: Did I give you any food?
Woodrow: Now I’m giving you my I-haz-a-sad look.
Mama: Aww, that’s a cute one.
Woodrow: It’s supposed to be sad!
Mama: I guess it needs work. Better luck next time!
4th of July Treats
Mama: Olive, want to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July?
Olive: I kind of just want the treat that’s in your hand.
Mama: Can you at least say it first?
Mama: Why are you staring at the neighbors?
Dexter: They’re grilling salmon.
Mama: You seem very concerned.
Dexter: They didn’t use enough butter!
Mama: The horrors.
Dexter: I should write them a letter on how to properly season salmon.
Mama: I think it’ll be okay.
Dexter: It’s not okay. Bring me my typewriter and letterhead!
Mama: There you are! I’ve been looking for you all day.
Harley: You could’ve called me.
Mama: I did. Like 10 times!
Harley: Ooo, so close. I would’ve responded on the 11th time.
Mama: Somehow I doubt that.
Harley: Well, now we’ll never know.
Our Little Secret
Mama: Sophie, did you ask Harley for permission to get in his box?
Sophie: I don’t need no stinkin’ permission!!
Sophie: ∗whispering∗ Don’t tell him, kay?
Handsome and Sweet
Mama: Who’s the handsomest boy cat in all of the land?
Mama: I’m talking about you!
Woodrow: But Harley says it’s him. So it must be true.
Mama: Aww, you’re the sweetest.
Woodrow: No, Harley says that’s Olive.
Mama: So what are you?
Woodrow: He says simple. Isn’t that great?!
Mama: Someone’s on high alert.
Olive: There’s an introoder in the house!
Mama: It’s just the plumber.
Olive: You’ve locked me in your office!
Mama: It’s for your own safety, so you don’t get out.
Olive: Or is it for his safety? Let me at him!
Mama: Are you going to attack him with your cuteness?
Olive: Perhaps that’s exactly my plan!
