Chatty Cats: Friends, Checklists and More!

Happy Friday! Ross and I are on vacation! Well, kind of. There are not many vacation options for us right now, so we’re doing day trips. But hey, it’s better than nothing!

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

Impatient Cat

Dexter: There you are!
Mama: Here I am.
Dexter: I’ve been waiting 2 minutes.
Mama: Gasp!
Dexter: You mock, Mama. But 2 minutes with a growling tummy is like 4 minutes!
Mama: Double gasp!

New patio furniture requires proper inspection and approval. However, Woodrow was more concerned with smelling what our neighbors were grilling (chicken). What were you up to this Caturday?

Friend or Foe?

Okay, friends. Which tabby is this with Olive? Dexter or Woodrow? And will this end in a kiss or a swat?

Really, Sophie? Really?!?

Mama: Sophie!!! What have you gotten into now?
Sophie: Uh, nothing.
Mama: Your face tells a different story.
Sophie: Don’t believe my face! It’s lying!
Mama: Uh-huh.
Sophie: ∗whispering∗ Mama, my face itches.

This is what happens when the hubby trims his beard and tosses the trimmings in the trash can…and then Sophie goes to investigate said trash can (I assume she was browsing for q-tips). I saw her from a distance and thought she was dirty from rolling around in the catio. But upon closer inspection… ∗sigh∗ Oh, Sophie.

Where’s My Thank You?

Mama: Cute cat alert!
Harley: Annoying mama alert!
Mama: Hey!
Harley: Every time I see you, you have a camera in your hands.
Mama: Don’t you want your fans to see you?
Harley: …
Mama: 📸 ∗click∗ You’ll thank me later.

Poor Woodrow

Mama: What’s wrong, Woodrow?
Woodrow: Everyone’s playing upstairs.
Mama: They said you weren’t invited, didn’t they.
Woodrow: I can’t help it if I’m an enthusiastic player! I do everything wholeheartedly!
Mama: I’ll play with you.
Woodrow: It’s not the same, Mama.
Mama: I know. Lap cuddles?
Woodrow: K.

Woodrow just wants a friend. Olive hisses at him, Dexter growls, Sophie runs away. Harley will play with him every once in a while, but they’re both so awkward about it that it doesn’t last long. To be fair, Woodrow is a bit of a bully, which is why the first three avoid him. I feel like Sophie would be the best candidate to play with him, but it just hasn’t happened yet. What are your cat family dynamics?

Dexter’s Checklist

Dexter: Got your masks?
Mama: Yes.
Dexter: Got your hand sanitizer?
Mama: Yes.
Dexter: Got your snackies?
Mama: We’ll only be gone a few hours.

  1. That last photo is priceless – but then all your photos are of this crew of yours! We are doing day trip vacations too – picnics up in the deserted mountain park, drives to “nowhere” with a picnic basket in case we find a spot…..Such is life now but hopefully – one day in the not too distant future – we’ll all travel beyond arms’ length again! Happy Friday.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  2. Love Sophie’s enthusiasm for everything, including napping!! Do you think she’s trying to have a beard like Daddy?

    I am in love with all of your babies! 🤍🖤🤎💜💙💚💛🧡❤️

  3. Enjoy your jaunt! Am sure the cats will have something to say about your absence; we cannot wait to hear it…LOL!
    Manny often sleeps with his big feets in the air, like Sophie, but it’s often difficult to get a good picture…I keep trying…
