Chatty Cats: Cuddles, Gotchas and More!

Happy Friday! Someone celebrated a gotcha day this week, although I’m not sure she wants to talk about it. She’s being a little touchy, as you’ll see below. Anyway, hope everyone had a wonderful week.

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


Mama: Harley, do you know what today is?
Harley: What?
Mama: National Hug Your Cat Day!
Harley: Cool. I think I saw Sophie thataway.

Nice Try

Sophie: Mama, someone’s grilling!
Mama: That’s nice.
Sophie: Can I join them?
Mama: No.
Sophie: Mama, someone’s grilling!
Mama: That’s nice.
Sophie: I’m gonna join them.
Mama: Still no.

Happy Gotcha Day

Mama: Happy 10th Gotcha Day!
Olive: Wha?!?
Mama: We’ve had you for 10 years now.
Olive: I’m so old!
Mama: Well, no. And that’s not the point. We’re celebrating you joining our family 10 years ago.
Olive: Stop saying 10 years!!
We took Olive in 10 years ago as a stray kitten. She’s turned into a beautiful, sassy lady cat, who tells it like it is.

Mr. Lovable Dum Dum

Woodrow: Look what I can do!
Mama: So talented.
Woodrow: I call it Twisted Tabby Tongue Out Tuesday.
Mama: Say that three times fast!
Woodrow: I can’t.
Mama: It’s just a saying.
Woodrow: Twisted Tabby Tongue Out Tuesday is a saying?
Mama: … Sure.

Harley: Mama, you’re not getting my spot.
Mama: I’m just walking by.
Harley: Exactly, keep on walking.
Mama: Okay.
Harley: Wait! A pet first, please.
Mama: You’re kind of bossy.
Harley: I said please!

Sir Grumpy

Mama: Why so grumps?
Dexter: Maybe because you always say I’m grumpy.
Mama: But…aren’t you?
Dexter: Self-fulfilling prophecy, Mama.
Mama: Deep.
Dexter looks grumpy about 79-83% of the time. Is he actually grumpy? I tend to think so.
