Chatty Cats: Zoomies, Vacation and More!

Happy Friday! The Cat Dad and I are currently on vacation. Our wonderful friend and cat sitter is staying with the cats – and they adore her (she’s working on Dexter). We’ll be back next week. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

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

Misplaced Memo

Harley: Mama, did you get my memo?
Mama: What memo?
Harley: I wanted snackies delivered at 11!
Mama: I didn’t get it.
Harley: That Sophie!! She said she’d deliver it.
Mama: She probably lost it.
Harley: I even tipped her!
Mama: She probably lost that too.

Vacation Alert

Sophie: Hey friends! Human vacation alert! Yeah, the humans have abandoned us, so I shall be taking over while Mama is away. First off, send me all the treats! Second, send me all the purses! Address them to Olive, so Mama doesn’t suspect a thing. Deal? Yeah, I knew I could count on all of you.
Mama: We haven’t left yet, Sophie.
Sophie: Oopsie.
Mama: I’ll take my phone back now.

We’re heading off on vacation for a week. Our good friend and cat sitter will be staying with the cats, so they will be spoiled the entire time we’re away. Btw, please don’t send Sophie any treats or purses while we’re gone. Thank you!

Mr. Grumps

Cat Sitter: Can I pet you?
Dexter: Undecided. But probably not.
Cat Sitter: I’m going to win you over while your parents are on vacation.
Dexter: Could happen. But probably not.

Mr. Moody

Cat Sitter: Your mama’s right. You are so handsome.
Harley: Are you calling her a liar?
Cat Sitter: No, I just said she’s right.
Harley: Are you calling me a liar?
Cat Sitter: Where did you get that from?
Harley: I’m just in a mood, okay?

  1. I didn’t have a clue where you were so asked Mr.Google! Have a lovely vacation.
    I think you were caught out there, Sophie.

  2. Well first of all we hope your parents have a wonderful break from daily routine for a mini-vacay……secondly, you guys better behave while Mom and Dad are away because trust me – that cat sitter is keeping notes!!!!!!!

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. I was clueless as to your destination, so I Googled it. I can’t say that would be my destination this time of year, but I hope you have a great time. The cat sitter will take good care of the babies, and I look forward to Dexter softening a little bit.

  4. Color me green with envy…CHICAGO!
    There are some terrific museums to visit, and I am determined to visit every Frank Lloyd Wright-built construction, of which there are many in the Chicago area.
    Have fun, and the kitties may be grumpy, but they’ll get over it within 10 minutes of you two returning home.
