Chatty Cats: Brave, Savesies and More!

Happy Friday! We had a little heatwave here this week. We hit 90 degrees! I broke down and turned the AC on. Hope it’s a little cooler in your area. (We’re in Southern California for those who don’t know.)

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

Weird Scritches

Olive: Chin scritch, asap!
Mama: Let me put my pen-
Olive: I said asap!
Mama: ∗scritch scritch scritch∗
Olive: What the-?
Mama: You said asap.
So, who else does this? I walk by a cat and let them smell whatever I’m holding. If approved of said item, the cat will proceed to rub against it. Like Olive and this pen.

Brave(ish) Sophie

Sophie: Halt! Who goes there?
Mama: It’s just our neighbor friend.
Sophie: Should I be scared?
Mama: You should be brave.
Sophie: ∗runs upstairs∗ I’ll be brave from up here!

Some Memory

Mama: Handsome, thy name is Dexter.
Dexter: Why thank you.
Mama: I only speak the truth.
Dexter: Remember that one time you said I could have three treats, but you only gave me two?
Mama: Like a year ago? We ran out of treats!
Dexter: I’m just sayin’.
Mama: Fine, I sometimes speak the truth.
Dexter: That’s better.

Here Comes Harley

Harley: Watch out, Ma! I’m on the move!
Mama: Where you off to?
Harley: Naptime. Obvi.

Table Cat

Woodrow: Mama, move! I can’t see around you.
Mama: Should you be on the table?
Woodrow: Yes!
Mama: The answer is no.
Woodrow: Agree to disagree.
Mama: That’s not how this works.
Woodrow: Agree to disagree.

Olive’s Savesies

Olive: Guys! I call savesies!
Mama: For how long?
Olive: Indefinitely.
Mama: That’s not how savesies work.
Olive: What, did you invent savesies?
Mama: … Why yes, yes I did.
Olive: Drat! Well, is a one-year savesies allowed?
Olive’s checking out the new cat tree/bed in the living room. Although she called savesies, I spotted Woodrow using it. He clearly doesn’t understand how savesies work either.

Savesies Didn’t Work

Mama: Olive called savesies on that.
Harley: I don’t listen to Olive.
Mama: … Yeah, me neither.
Harley: Good job. You said that like you believe it.

  1. HA! I usually let Teddy smell what I have in my hand…..he does the “cat claiming” thing which I figured was just him marking whatever I had as HIS and absolutely NOT mine. Makes me laugh every time. Great photos and “convos” this week!!

    Hugs, Pam

  2. I always let our kitties smell what I’m carrying. Sometimes they approve and will rub on it. Other times they’ll cringe backwards and look at me like it is disgusting. I figure they’re curious and have the options of finding out everything. I love the beginning extra photo of Woodrow sound asleep. At least I think it’s Woodrow. Savesies works just like that in our house by the way.

  3. Wow 90!!! It was 30F this morning but is getting milder.
    Harley, you look like a mancat on a mission. All cute photos and conversations.

  4. It’s warming up here too (Texas), but we’re not expecting that to last through the weekend. Love the new cat/tree bed!

  5. You look cute on the table Woodrow. We had a heat wave too-it hut 50 degrees today. :) Have a wonderful weekend. XO

  6. I was worried about all of you yesterday when I read a headline about a fire breaking out in your area!
    My billion kitties are LOVING the weather! I work half day on Fridays so the kittens got to go out today and are now (8pm) zonked out.

    I also show my cats anything that interests them. This week they’ve each been oddly attracted to my phone.

  7. O how sweet you all are, your pictures are always so beautiful and the chats are so real💗We’re having a little change of weather for a few days too, not that it is warm, but the Sun is out, haven’t seen that one for quite some time🌞
    Enjoy the weather! Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞
