Chatty Cats: Scritches, Treats and More!

Happy Friday! Did everyone have a nice Halloween? We had one knock on the door and that’s it. Our candy was in a cat-shaped dish, which the two kids thought was pretty cool and said “meow” in response. They were raised right.

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

Chin Scritches

Sophie: Chin scritch, stat!
Mama: ∗scritch scritch scritch∗

Poor Woodrow

Woodrow: Stuffies, I guess it’s just you and me. Mama has abandoned us.
Mama: I’m right here.
Woodrow: You’ve been gone all day.
Mama: I was gone for one hour.
Woodrow: See, Stuffies. Abandoned.

Party Pooper

Sophie: Okay, I’m ready!
Mama: For what?
Sophie: For all the trick-or-treaters to give me treats!
Mama: That’s not how it works.
Sophie: Huh?
Mama: WE give out the treats.
Sophie: What?!? I’d never give away my treats! Take this off me. I’m done. I hate Halloween.

Olive vs. Monday

Mama: ∗sigh∗
Olive: What’s wrong, Mama?
Mama: Oh, you know, Monday.
Olive: Show me this Monday character and I’ll show ’em what’s what.
Mama: Aww, you’re sweet.
Olive: No one messes with my mama except me.

Displeased Dexter

Dexter: Have you been petting other cats?
Mama: Yes.
Dexter: Who?
Mama: Well, four other cats live here.
Dexter: I live here. Four other cats have temporary residency.
Mama: If temporary means for life.
Dexter: You stink. Go wash your hands.
Mama: Then I can pet you?
Dexter: Did I say that?

Harley: Hello.
Mama: Hi.
Harley: You’re kinda close.
Mama: I was here first. You sat there after.
Harley: I’m comfy. You move.

Harley: I said I’m comfy.

Treat Time?

Woodrow: Mama, is it time for treats?
Mama: Not yet.
Woodrow: What time is it right now?
Mama: 2:30.
Woodrow: And what time are treats?
Mama: 3:30.
Woodrow: So in one minute?
Mama: Woodrow, you really need to learn how to tell time. Or at least understand time.
Woodrow: Are you calling me dumb?
Mama: No.
Woodrow: Okay, well treats are in one minute. You better go get them!

Bonus Friday Video

Someone comes to check on sleeping Sophie and wakes her. But a little belly rub puts her right back to sleep.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Awwwwwww………..Sophie looked adorable in her Halloween outfit but obviously was a bit confused on how it works – well – no doubt she EVENTUALLY got treats anyway. Speaking of her – the video is SWEET. As always all photos and “conversations” – PERFECTION….

    Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too)

  2. What a wonderful week of photos and conversations! You never failed to brighten my day with your babies. Thank you for including that bonus video of Sophie. It was precious!

  3. I love your posts about your kitties. And I totally agree with Sophie about treats. She’s so adorable in her pumpkin costume.

  4. Y’all are extra cute this week, love the pumpkin Sophie – MOL! ‘No one messes with my Mama but me’ – too fun!

  5. I had about 6 knocks.. 10 kids. I had candy, BIG candy, for 50!!

    Skritches is the name of my blind cat.

    Toonces and I are supposed to be leaving, right now, for his annual checkup and vaccine boosters. Instead, he’s MIA and I’m about to call and cancel. Tomorrow I try with Beba – who I’d take now but she’s hiding somewhere.

    Have a great time chg weekend!!

  6. Sophie, you are the cutest pumpkin ever. You had more trick or treaters than we did. :) Have a great weekend. XO

  7. We only had two trick or treaters, lucky for JakeHousePanther though they got chocolate treats. Jake says that’s okay because he doesn’t like chocolate. Sophie you are the cutest pumpkin in the patch. Olive you are doing a good job protecting your Mama from Monday.

  8. Sophie, you should totally be the one to give out the treats! Look at you, all dolled up, and you didn’t get the honor? That is messed up!
