Chatty Cats: Singing, Selfies and More!

Happy Friday! Yesterday, we celebrated another gotcha gay – Dexter’s 9th! You may remember that we celebrated Olive’s gotcha day a couple weeks ago. We found both Dexter and Olive as strays in the month of June – Dexter nearly one year before Olive. I shared Olive’s kitten photos last time…so here are a few of little Dexter.

Chatty Cats: Chomps, Cutes and More!

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a wonderful week. In honor of Father’s Day this Sunday, I’m sharing two photos of Sophie and Ross. I’ve shared them before, but they’re just too cute not to share again! Sophie loves her cat daddy – almost as much as she loves me. Okay, she probably loves him more than me. Gasp!

Chatty Cats: Innocent, Bossy and More!

Happy Friday! Guess what today is? It’s Olive’s 8th Gotcha Day! That’s right, we found Olive as a stray kitten back in 2011. Actually, we didn’t find her. Asphalt workers found her wandering around and we took her in. She had no microchip and no one came forward when we put up flyers. Dexter, who was one year old at the time, insisted that we keep her. So, we did!

Here’s a photo from 10 days after Olive found us. It’s one of my all time favorites. It looks like she’s smiling and happy to be in her forever home with her big bro Dexter.

A Chatty Cats Portrait Sitting

Sophie: Come on, guys! The artist is here!
Dexter: What artist?
Sophie: We’re getting our portraits painted today! I’m so excited!
Olive: Mama, did I sign off on this artist?
Mama: It’s our friend Jen. I didn’t think you’d need to sign off. Who’s going first?
Olive: I will. I want Jen to be fresh for my portrait.
Dexter: Mama, should I put on my bow tie for this?
Harley: I’m hungry! Will food be involved?
Woodrow: JenJen, I love you lots.

Last month I commissioned some portraits of the Three Chatty Cats and the Jr. Associates. And today, I want to share them with you! Continue reading “A Chatty Cats Portrait Sitting”

Happy Friday! I want to say a big thank you to Sharon Melnyk and the CWA for sending a swag bag from the Cat Writers’ Association conference (which I didn’t attend).
