Chatty Cats: Certificates, Pretendsies and More!

Happy Friday! The big news here this week is that Three Chatty Cats won five Certificate of Excellence awards from the Cat Writers’ Association. We’re very excited that every one of our entries earned a certificate!

Here are the categories: Social Media (Entertainment), Blog (Entertainment) and Single Image Photography (three photos entered).

We’re beyond thankful and so excited. And a big congratulations to all of the COE winners!

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

Only Pretendsies

Mama: Why so glum?
Sophie: You’re leaving us again.
Mama: Only for the day.
Sophie: It feels like a lifetime.
Mama: Aww, did you miss me yesterday?
Sophie: Ha! Don’t make me laugh.
Mama: Then why are you sad?
Sophie: This is pretendsies sad. I’m trying to make you feel guilty.
Mama: It’s not working.
Sophie: Drat. You’re impervious to my pretendsies.
