Chatty Cats: Gotchas, Oopsies and More!

Happy Friday! We celebrated Olive’s 11th Gotcha Day this week! And in honor of our tortie lady, please enjoy this video from the first night we found her. (I know, I know – we weren’t knowledgable pet parents back then and didn’t separate Dexter and Olive. But it turned out okay.) And a special appearance from Eddie!

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

No More Wiggle

Sophie: What’s dat?
Mama: Sophie, don’t…
Sophie: But it wiggled.
Mama: My finger did not wiggle.
Sophie: I’m pretty sure it wiggled at me.
Mama: Sophie…
Sophie: ∗WHAP∗ There, all taken care of.

An Attempt Was Made

Woodrow: 50 treats, add to cart.
Woodrow: Password required. Shoot.
Woodrow: Unlock with Face ID.
Woodrow: Error. Try again.
Woodrow: Too many attempts. Locked out.
Woodrow: ∗whispers∗ Oopsies.

Guard Your Bed

Harley: Are you coming in here to nap?
Mama: No.
Harley: Good, you nap too much.
Mama: I take a nap like once a month at most.
Harley: And that’s once a month where my napping is disrupted.
Mama: Oh, I’m sooooo sorry.
Harley: I don’t believe you.
Mama: Hmm, I suddenly feel like taking a nap.
Harley: I won’t forget this!!

Monday Mood

Mama: Are you getting out of bed today?
Dexter: …
Mama: Never mind.

Gotcha Day Girl

Mama: Someone’s being very thorough.
Olive: I’m getting ready for my party! Need to look my best!
Mama: Your what?
Olive: My gotcha day party!
Mama: Riiiiiight. Um, should be fun!
Olive: I can’t wait!
Mama: I have to run an errand. Be right back!
It’s been 11 years since we found little Olive as a stray kitten. She is independent, loving, adorable and our special tortie lady. Happy Gotcha Day, Olive!

Undercover Kitty

Mama: What are you doing?
Sophie: Never you mind!
Mama: Your purse isn’t under there.
Sophie: Leave no blanket unturned!

Mama: Those whiskers!
Woodrow: Yeah?
Mama: That mouth!
Woodrow: Yeah?
Mama: Those tiny teeth!
Woodrow: Yeah?
Mama: You. Are. Perfection.
Woodrow: Yeah.

As you’ve seen in the above video of Sophie, she likes to burrow under blankets. So, we must check before sitting down. Does anyone else have to do this?

  1. Happy 11th Gotcha Day, Olive! Hope it was furbulous. Dexter was a kind boy when the humans brought you home. Our kitties go under blankets, too. Luckily it’s usually just the top blanket on our bed, so it’s pretty obvious where they are.

  2. Happy 11th Gotcha Day Olive! You are so beautiful as both a kit and a cat – smooches and chin scritches to you!

  3. Love the video of Olive as a kitten! Brave, pretty kitten…I don’t have any kitties who like to get under cover currently. Many years ago, I was getting ready for work and heard w whump sound…one of my afghans was lying in the middle of the floor…maybe I was wrong about ghosts not existing? Nope, no ghost…just Sundance who had burrowed under it and when he jumped, the afghan went with him!

    Thank you for sharing your Chatty Cat’s. They often make my day, here and on Instagram!

  4. Happy Gotcha Day, Olive! That is such a cute kitten video of you. Of course, you’re always cute.

    The torties here are most likely to hide under the blankets and be sat upon or cause a panic, because a cat is missing!

  5. Olive, you were the cutest little kitten ever. Happy Gotcha Day! Have a great weekend everyone! XO

  6. Happy Gotcha Olive – you sure were a cutie kitten and just look at all that tortitude you grew up with! You were lucky to be found by this family that’s for sure! As for blankets – Teddy has been known to lie ON one but never UNDER one. His idea of cozy is behind the couch!

    Hugs, Pam

  7. Sophie, it definitely wiggled! We saw it!

    Happy Gotcha Day, Olive! That video was the best. Dexter was like, “what the heck is THAT???” And hoe nice to see Eddie. :)

  8. Happy Gotcha Day, Olive ! We hope you had a wonderful celebration ! Pixie loves to burrow under blankets and bedcovers, checking before sitting down is a must here. Purrs
