Happy Friday! The Cat Writers’ Association virtual awards ceremony was held last Saturday. I was honored to win two Muse Medallions – one for Best Humor/Entertainment Blog and one for Best Product Review (SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder). A huge congratulations to all of the Muse winners – and a huge thank you to everyone who worked so hard on putting together the virtual ceremony! It was a wonderful event.
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Olive: Mama, we need to talk.
Olive: How am I supposed to make friends if you keep taking them away?
Mama: Cat Dad took the lizard, not me.
Olive: And who alerted him about the lizard?
Mama: Umm…was it Sophie?
Sophie: Lemme hold it, Mama!
Mama: No, I got it.
Sophie: I can do it!
Mama: You know what happens when you try to take a selfie…
Sophie: Yeah, perfection.
Mama: Okay, here. You hold it.
Sophie: 📸 Argh!!!!
Mama: Whatcha doing?
Harley: Cleaning my toe beans. See?
Mama: I love your toe beans.
Harley: They are pretty cute, aren’t they?
Mama: The cutest.
Sophie: Mama, look at my battle wound!
Sophie: I was the bravest kitty in all da worldest and fought off dat big ol’ monster!
Sophie: He won’t be stealing anymore of my teefies. He just got da one.
Mama: Good job, Sophie.
Sophie: You want me to show you my moves?
Mama: I’m good, thanks.
Sophie had a dental cleaning today. She had one tooth extracted. As you can see, she’s still feeling pretty good from the meds.
Mama: What are you doing?
Dexter: Isn’t it obvious?
Mama: Not really.
Dexter: I’m practicing my handsome.
Mama: You don’t need to practice. You’re already maximum handsome.
Dexter: You’re sweet, Mama. But one must always practice to maintain such high levels of handsome.
Woodrow’s Gotcha Day
Mama: Woodrow, today is your 3rd Gotcha Day!
Woodrow: Whoa…I’m three years old today?
Mama: No, we adopted you three years ago.
Woodrow: So how old am I then?
Mama: That’s not really relevant. But I think you’re almost eight.
Woodrow: You THINK? What kind of mama are you?
Mama: The kind who loves you very much.
Woodrow: Ooo, you’re good, Mama.
Mama, Mama, Mama! Is it Friday yet? Hmm? Is it, is it, is it? ~Olive
Bonus Friday Photo
I took this photo over the weekend and then had to do a double-take when I looked at it later. That’s q-tip fuzz, not smoke. The stick is under her paw.
Stay safe, everyone!
