Chatty Cats: Tummies, Pantaloons and More!

Happy Friday! It has been a weird week here. All week we’ve been covered in smoke from a Southern California wildfire (that gender reveal one you might’ve heard about), and everything has a muted and orange look outside. We can’t smell the smoke, but we do have ash covering our patio. It’s sad how much of our state is on fire right now (and other parts of the country). Thankfully, we are not close to any of the fires. A big thank you to all of the firefighters battling the wildfires!

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

Two Sides of Harley

Harley: Mama, you better not post that photo of me.
Mama: You mean this one?
Harley: Gah! I’m hideous!
Mama: You’re adorable. You and your chin whiskers!
Harley: Post that other one too. Or else.
Mama: Or else what?
Harley: Or else I’ll start posting photos of you!
Mama: ∗post∗
#goofy vs #handsome

These photos were taken minutes apart. Harley insists that first one is not him. It’s amazing what good lighting and a different angle will do. Personally, I love a good goofy shot.

Hot, Hot, Hot!

Olive: Mama, this is no fun.
Mama: What’s no fun?
Olive: This heat! Can you turn it down?
Mama: Well, it went down today from yesterday.
Olive: From…?
Mama: 111 to 109.

It’s hot here in Southern California! How about where you are?

Three-Day Weekend Problems

Mama: Whatcha thinkin’ about?
Sophie: I’m mentally preparing for tomorrow.
Mama: Why?
Sophie: Tuesdays as Mondays really throw me off.
Mama: Oh, really?
Sophie: Yes, Mama! My whole napping schedule will be messed up for days!

That Tummy!

Olive: Mama, rub my belly!
Mama: Okay.
Olive: Wait, don’t touch it!
Mama: ∗touch∗
Olive: Gasp!!!

Another Side of Harley

Harley: Are we doing it?
Mama: I don’t know, Harley. Do you think your fans are ready for that?
Harley: There’s only one way to find out.
Mama: Okay…here we go!
Harley: BOOM! It’s Mr. Floofy Pantaloons!

  1. oh Harley do you remember the man from Roxy music? who only allowed photos of his left side (or was it the right one?) … we like such cat-itudes, that are the things what make us so unique and special..

  2. One hundred and eleven??? That’s crazy. This morning it is 12 (Celsius; about 56 F) here. There are rumours of single digits!! (9C=48F).
    I can’t even begin to express how much I love Harley’s pantaloons! While I don’t miss long hair everywhere I do miss pantaloons. Lol.

  3. Oh Harley’s floofy pantaloons are adorable!!! I love them. And tummy rubs, must be careful of tummy rubs. The neighborhood kitty, Malolm., likes ear skritches.
    It has been a tiny bit cooler here, realtively speaking in the low 90s as oppossed to the high 090s and 100s.
    so glad you are not near the fires, but stay safe.

  4. We really love those pantaloons Harley and your first, we mean second, photo too. What a handsome fellow. Not that all of you arent wonderful beautiful kitties. Great photos all

  5. My goodness! Those are floofy and a half pantaloons!! Mom says I have them too but I think mine are “almost pantaloons” and Harley’s got the FULL MONTY of pantaloons! Everybody looks great as always – Sophie please tell me that you know where ALL your purses are? I worry about stuff like that!

    Hugs, Teddy

  6. Those are some good pantaloons!!!

    I heard that Thur’s smoke, which was sooo much thicker, was coming clear from the NorCal fires! It’s sent me into horrible coughing fits. Today everything smells of smoke… esp my living room (no idea why). I headd a forecast that it will start clearing tomorrow… hope-hope-hope!!

    I’m involved with trying to trap kittens this weekend, then some of my new cat colony for spay/neuter Tues morn. It’s confusing because the place only takes ferals but the 2 cats who most need fixin are tame females. I don’t wanna be a TNR person! I wholeheartedly support it… I just don’t want to be that person!!

  7. My heart goes out to all impacted by these fires and by the heat that is so hard on everyone. Stay safe and well, and really the pantaloons did help lift my spirits – MOL!

  8. The 🐱🐱🐱cats are in rare form!😹😹😹💕Sorry about the 🔥fire n ash! We had smoke n ask for weeks here in Colorado! Now we have snow❄in the mountains and co!d soaking ☔rains for days! We needed it so much!😉 but its hard on my kits! The smoke kept them scared and they couldn’t go outside. So I have a house of very bored cats, because now it’s too cold!😫😵 Goodness!😹
    Your little ones sure know how to milk the attention!😸 But who could blame them!🤗💕They’re 🐱cats! So of course they’re adorable!💕

  9. You have lovely floofy pantaloons, Harley! Dexter’s face makes me laugh with Sophie performing her ablutions in the background.

  10. Harley, those are nice pantaloons. And Olive, I would love to rub that tummy. I am glad you are safe from the fires, sorry about the ash though. Have a nice weekend. XO

  11. Harley, your panatloons are positively purrfect. The heat, smoke and ash sound terrible. We hope things improve soon.
