Chatty Cats: Grandmas, Shopping and More!

Happy Friday! We hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend. My mom was here visiting for the weekend – the first time in a few years (due to the pandemic). As you’ll see, the cats were excited to have her visiting.

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

Weekend Ready

Dexter: We doing this?
Mama: Doing what?
Dexter: The weekend. Bring me my blankie, a tub of treats and the remote. I’m not leaving my bed.
Mama: What about the bathroom?
Dexter: Sure, bring that too.

Sudden Lap Cat

Olive: Hey, anyone got a lap over here?
Mama: Why?
Olive: For sitting in.
Mama: You’re not a lap cat.
Olive: Maybe I just haven’t found the right lap yet.

Success! Olive isn’t a lap cat, although she will sit snuggled up against us. Well, my mom is in town visiting this weekend – who Olive hasn’t seen in three years – and Olive climbed right into her lap this morning! Twice! Gee thanks, Olive. I guess my lap isn’t good enough.

Shopping with Grandma

Mama: What are you doing?
Sophie: Waiting for Grandma to get up.
Mama: Why?
Sophie: We’re going purse shopping today!
Mama: Oh really?
Sophie: Yep!
Mama: And she knows this?
Sophie: I sent her a calendar invite weeks ago! ∗whispering∗ She has yet to accept it.
Mama: Well, please try to not lose this one.
Sophie: I make no promises!

Free Pets

Woodrow: Guys! Grandma’s handing out free pets!
Mama: I don’t charge you for pets.
Woodrow: Yes you do! I have to look cute all the time for you.
Mama: But you ARE cute all the time.
Woodrow: Exactly! For the pets!

Missing Grandma

Mama: Whatcha doing?
Harley: Lookin’ for that lady.
Mama: My mom? She flew out this morning.
Harley: Who am I gonna sleep with at night?
Mama: I’m still here.
Harley: Eh.

Confusing Week

Mama: Why so grumps?
Dexter: I thought today was Thursday, so tomorrow’s Friday.
Mama: Bummer.
Dexter: But it’s only Tuesday.
Mama: It’s actually Wednesday!
Dexter: Gah!
Mama: Isn’t that better than Tuesday?
Dexter: Check with me on Thursday.

Olive: You know it!

Bonus Friday Video

Here’s Dexter and Sophie having words. And Woodrow asking me for food. (There’s a fan on, which is why it’s so noisy.)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. The video reminds me of my old cat Jake (RIP). He and Morgan used to bat at each other in the morning before breakfast. Nothing else, just some air bats.

  2. So, inquiring minds want to know if Sophie managed to score a new purse courtesy of Grandma? It looks like the cats enjoyed her visit and after 3 years I know you ALL didI’m sure. Have a GRAND weekend!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  3. Yikes! I thought Sophie and Dexter were buddies. Maybe Sophie was mad that Grandma didn’t buy her a Birkin bag.
    Looks like everyone loves Grandma- they are the best. Have a wonderful weekend. XO

  4. I never thought I would see Dexter and Sophie having words! Must have been a little love spat. Everybody loves Grandma’s, even with humans. It’s nice she feels so loved by them when she comes to visit.

  5. How nice that your mom got to visit, Rachel! And it sounds like she was a big hit with the cats. :)
