Happy Friday! Another quiet week here at the Three Chatty Cats household. (We like quiet.) So, let’s get right to it…here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Mama: Hi, Olive.
Sophie: Excuse me?!?
Mama: My bad! You look so prim and proper right now. I thought you were Olive.
Sophie: How’s this?
Mama: THERE’S my Sophie!
Harley: Mama, I think the world needs a pick-me-up.
Mama: Any ideas?
Dexter: Mama, hold my calls. I’m gonna take a quick snoozie.
Mama: You don’t get any calls.
Dexter: I know. But I like to sound important.
Mama: You’re important to me.
Dexter: Apparently not enough to call me.
Mama: Do you know what today is?
Olive: Tortie Tuesday.
Mama: Sure, but…
Olive: Tongue Out Tuesday.
Mama: Today is the first day of fall!
Olive: Fall…Tuesday? I don’t get it.
Mama: Fall like autumn.
Olive: Pumpkin spice!!!
A for Effort
Mama: Whatcha doing?
Woodrow: Counting my toe beans.
Mama: How many do you have?
Woodrow: So far, 3.
Mama: So far?
Woodrow: ∗whispering∗ I can only count to 3.
Remember Me Thursday
Harley: Mama, I know today is a special day…
Mama: Yep, it’s Remember Me Thursday.
Harley: But I don’t like thinking about my time in the shelter.
Mama: I know. But that’s exactly why today is important. It’s a day to get the world talking about pet adoption!
Harley: Well, if I can help more pets be adopted, then I’m in. Let’s do this!
Harley came to us as a foster cat in November 2017, likely at least 10 years old. Just that year alone, this blue-eyed beauty had been adopted and returned twice to Best Friends in Los Angeles. The first adopters said he was too shy and peed when scared. The second adopters were moving in with someone who had allergies and said they couldn’t take him. Harley really needed a break in a foster home and we were happy to host him. We also learned that while at Best Friends, Harley was a hero to a young, fading kitten who needed a blood transfusion. (#HeroHarley)
We fostered Harley for about 3 months before deciding we were his forever home. So, gone forever was shelter life for Harley. Now, fully settled in, Harley pretty much does what he wants, gets what he wants and is our resident bossy pants cat. We couldn’t love him any more. So, the point of the story? Go out and find yourself a Harley! Adopt your next pet from a rescue or shelter. They will surely thank you with endless love and head bonks.
