Happy Friday! We’re back from our trip and the cats have forgiven us for leaving (phew). As some will have seen from last week’s post, we were in Chicago for a bit of touristy stuff. Then we drove to Michigan to visit with my family. This was our first trip out there since the pandemic started, so it was very nice seeing everyone. Cold for us SoCal folks, but we had a wonderful visit!
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Olive: What are you eating?
Cat Sitter: A salad.
Olive: Sounds gross.
Cat Sitter: It’s delicious.
Olive: Are you okay? Should I call someone?
Cat Sitter: Do you want to come out?
Woodrow: Not til Mama comes home.
Cat Sitter: That’s a few more days…
Harley: ∗shouting down∗ Is Mama home yet?
Cat Sitter: Aww, do you miss her?
Harley: Did I say that?!?
Sophie: Wanna play?
Cat Sitter: Sure. Do you want to pick out a toy?
Sophie: Will you do it?
Cat Sitter: Of course.
Sophie: Not that one. Or that one!
Cat Sitter: Why don’t you pick it out.
Sophie: You’re doing a great job! Just pick the right one.
Still Not Ready
Cat Sitter: Okay, are you ready?
Dexter: For what?
Cat Sitter: I’m going to pet you.
Dexter: I’m not ready. I’m not ready!
Cat Sitter: Your parents come home tomorrow. When will you be ready?
Dexter: A week from tomorrow. Maybe.
Harley: What are you doing?
Cat Sitter: Packing my things. Your parents will be home tonight.
Harley: You’re abandoning us too?
Cat Sitter: No, your parents will be back.
Harley: I knew it! You don’t love us.
Cat Sitter: I love you very much. I’ll see you next time they go on vacation.
Harley: Wait, they’re abandoning us again?
Olive: So, tell me all about your trip.
Mama: It was great! We went to-
Olive: Skip to the good part.
Mama: What’s that?
Olive: What did you bring me?
Mama: I brought you-
Olive: And don’t say a hug like last time!
Harley: I’m so disappointed in you.
Mama: Uh oh.
Harley: You go away for a week. Then you come home and take me to the vet?
Mama: It was pre-planned!
Mama: It was just a quick checkup!
Harley: ∗shakes head∗ Disappointed, Mama.

No kitties on our trip, but here’s a blooper shot of my mom’s dog with my aunt’s dog.
Have a wonderful weekend!
