Chatty Cats: Perfect, Spring and More!

Happy Friday! Spring arrived this week. And with it, so did the opening of our catio. It needed a good cleaning after on and off rain and wind. Olive was the first one out, followed by Dexter. Woodrow insisted that I carry him out instead of using the door flap. And then Sophie joined the party last. Harley never goes in the catio, so I carried him out to remind him it’s there. You’ll see below how he reacted to that.

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

Perfect Sophie

Mama: 📸
Sophie: Let me see that. Nope! Do another.
Mama: 📸
Sophie: Gah! What’s wrong with me?
Mama: Nothing. You’re perfect. *∗whispering∗ A perfect little goofball.
Sophie: ∗sigh∗

Spring Smells

Olive: Aww, smell that fresh spring air!
Mama: What’s it smell like?
Olive: Sunshine, freshly cut grass, hoping and tuna crunchies.
Mama: Do you mean you’re hoping for tuna crunchies?
Olive: I mean, I’ll take ‘em if you got ‘em.

In or Out?

Mama: Please make up your mind.
Harley: Don’t rush me.
Mama: Do you want to come out to the catio or not?
Harley: I’m thinking not. But maybe I should. No, you go without me. But wait, maybe? Can you give me a pro or con list?

This is our version of in or out. We opened the catio back up today and Harley actually showed interest. (He never goes out to the catio.) I knew he wouldn’t use the door flap entrance, so I picked him up and took him out. He promptly said, no thank you, and shot through the flap back to the safety of inside.

Bothered Cat

Dexter: Excuse me! What are you doing?
Mama: Trying to put away the laundry.
Dexter: Well, this place is occupied. Do you mind?

Hard Life

Mama: Sophie, want to do a tongue-out Tuesday shot?
Sophie: Do I have to?
Mama: No.
Sophie: ∗sigh∗ How’s this?
Mama: Life’s so hard, isn’t it?
Sophie: Kind of!!

Olive: I hope you’re not expecting anything cute right now.
Mama: Why?
Olive: I’m not in a cute mood.
Mama: But you’re always cute.
Olive: It’s a burden I must live with.

Bonus Friday Bloopers

Olive was a little excited in the catio and wanted to get close up to show me. And I caught Harley’s big “NOPE” on being in the catio before he went back inside.

Stay safe, everyone!

  1. Oh Sophie….you always make us giggle. Love the pink combo of toes and nose that Woodrow offered up for a photo and everyone else looks like they just might be ready for SPRING to SPRING UP!

    Thanks for the weekly photo catchup………….Hugs, Pam and Teddy

  2. Sophie we really like the one of you reaching. You are purrfect. Olive tuna Crunchies sound good have any extra? Harley give it a try, maybe later in the year? Dexter parents just dont understand personal space. Sophie thanks for that little peek. Woodrow beautiful pink beans. Olive its hard to be cute all the time but you pull it off. Great bloopers too. Wow what a fun week. Purrs friends

  3. I think Harley does not like the outdoors for some unknown reason. Maybe he is afraid to go out because he fears he won’t be able to get back inside again? Who knows what a cat is thinking?

  4. What beautiful photo captures of life with the chatty cats and extended family! Your weekly recap always brightens my Friday. You’ve helped me manage my way through this past year. Thank you!

  5. Yay, a catio ! Harley, what is so frightening outside for you ? Olivia, we didn’t know spring smelled like tuna crunchies, it’s maybe because we’re too far away from the sea. Purrs

  6. I love your cats!
    My household has started taking lunch breaks in the front yard. Several people have thought I was hurt as I tend to lay in the sun with the cats.

    I looooved the cats photos I was able to get with a new A51 phone (thought of your pics) but it died and had to be returned & refunded. After much debated, I ordered a replacement last night, same model. My wp media is at 90%+ so I’ll have to decide between deleting old media or paying for more storage so I can post high res cat pics!

    1. Haha, that’s too funny about people thinking you were hurt. I’m glad you like the cat photos on the new phone! Hope you get your replacement quickly.

  7. Harley, I don’t blame you-inside is more fun. :) And watch those toe beans, they look like yummy pink jelly beans. Have a nice weekend. XO

  8. Harley, that’s my reaction when I have to go shopping. Where’s the door to go back home. ;) Have a good weekend!

  9. Woodrow, we love your jellybean toes. And Harley, we get it … inside? Outside? Decisions are hard to make!
