Chatty Cats: Dentals, Gotchas and More!

Happy Friday! Dexter and Olive both had dental cleanings this week on Monday. I knew Olive would likely need an extraction or two, but it turns out Dexter also had a tooth removed. They are both doing fine. I think the hardest part for Olive is her missing leg furs.

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

Not So Big News

Mama: Did you hear the news?!?
Olive: What?
Mama: Three Chatty Cats won 5 Certificate of Excellence awards from the Cat Writers’ Association!
Olive: …
Mama: Aren’t you excited?
Olive: Did you bring me the snack I requested?
Mama: Olive!
Olive: What?
Mama: Did you hear what I said?
Olive: It’s hard to hear over my rumbling tummy.

International Cat Day Deal

Harley: Mama, can I have 5 dollars?
Mama: Why?
Harley: It’s International Cat Day.
Mama: So…?
Harley: I’m a cat.
Mama: ….
Harley: And I need 5 dollars.
Mama: ….
Harley: What if I want to buy you a present?
Mama: Do you?
Harley: I guess. But now I need 10 and we’ll call it even.

Mean Mama

Dexter: ∗looks at Mama∗
Mama: I’m sorry!
Dexter: ∗whispering∗ How could you?
Mama: I’m so sorry!
Dexter: …
Mama: Could you please stop with those eyes? I can’t take it!

Dexter and Olive had dental cleanings today – and both had extractions. Olive had both of her lower third premolars removed, and Dexter had one third premolar removed. Both cats are doing well, resting and giving me the look. You know the one I’m talking about.

Tortitude Tuesday

Mama: You’re so pretty.
Olive: You say that as if I don’t know that.
Mama: You could just say thank you.
Olive: Don’t put this on me.
Mama: Right, what was I thinking.

No Longer Needed

Sophie: Mama, I dropped my pencil.
Mama: Then hop down and get it.
Sophie: It’s too far.
Mama: What do you need a pencil for anyway?
Sophie: I’m writing my grocery list for you.
Mama: Let me guess. Treats, treats and treats.
Sophie: Yes! Now I don’t need my pencil anymore.

A Handsome Gotcha Boy

Mama: Someone is looking all handsome on his Gotcha Day!
Woodrow: Happy Gotcha Day, Harley!
Mama: I’m talking about you. It’s YOUR gotcha day!
Woodrow: The handsome part confused me.
Mama: You’re very handsome!
Woodrow: I’d rather be known as the Lovable Dum Dum.
Mama: You already are.
Woodrow: Perfect. My brand is on point.

Today is Woodrow’s 4th adoptaversary. He was our first foster fail and quickly established himself as the lovable dum dum of the house. He is a lovebug and often has a baffled look on his adorable face. We love you, Woodrow!

Bonus Friday Video

This video is from right after I snapped the photo of Sophie smiling above. She’s clamped on to poor Dexter right in the beginning…she’s so weird. But he still loves her.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Awwwww…….that “poor pitiful me” look is obviously something Dexter has practiced in front of a mirror….it’s just too good to be off the cuff. Love the video too – I think Sophie was delivering an official “love bite” !! Congratulations on the well deserved Certificates of Excellence……….

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

    It looks like one of my stray “kittens” (4mos) left this week… the unfixed feral boy.
    The 2 tame kittens that were dropped off 3wks ago remain adorable and I plan to keep them!

    Last weekend I took care of a neighbor’s cat. He haaaates me, which I adore because almost all other cats love me!

    With quitting my job, I was considering moving to NM… but worried about neighbors when I show up with 6 indoor cats and 6 strays (which would go in a catio). But Life sent me another job, with a 1 month break, so all is well. The NM homes are large and beautiful but not moving is a heck of a lot easier!! And how could I gove up SoCal?!?

    CONGRATS on the awards!! And so many!!!

  4. Happy Gotcha Day Woodrow! Congrats on all the well deserved certificates. And Olive and Dexter, the Tooth Fairy will send you something soon. XO

  5. Dexter and Sophie are such a cute pair ! Happy Gotcha Day, Woodrow ! Dexter and Olive, we hope you feel better soon and will forgive your mom (after a few extra-treats). Purrs

  6. You sweethearts sure are good at that mean mama look. Congratulations on your COEs. So well-deserved! :)

    And happy gotcha day, Woodrow! XO

  7. Concatulations on those certificates…the Humans couldn’t do it without us! And Olive, sorry for that loss of fur patch on your leg but you are still beautiful!
    purrs & Head Bonks,
