Chatty Cats: Faces, Roaring and More!

Happy Friday! There’s not much to update for the week since, you know, there’s not much going on. Today marks the 30th day of our “safer at home” order in California. It’s pretty hard to believe we’ve been home for so long, but it definitely seems to be helping in our state. I hope everyone out there is doing well and staying safe!

Chatty Cats: Countdowns, Friends and More!

Happy Friday! Last week was all about the opening of the catio for the season, but this week…pouring rain on and off. So, very little outside time for the cats – and also fewer walks for the humans. Ross and I haven’t been out in public for nearly three weeks now (besides walks in our neighborhood observing social distancing). We’ve been fortunate to have our essentials delivered to the house. I am very thankful for every single essential worker, no matter what the industry, for helping all of us get through this pandemic. How are you doing during this unusual time?

Chatty Cats: Catio, Meetings and More!

Happy Friday! April has arrived and so has catio season! Ross cleaned it out on Sunday, and then it was officially open for business again on Monday. Photos below of the cats enjoying themselves in the fresh air. Well, that’s about it for excitement over here. We’re still staying home and staying safe. I hope you are, too.

Chatty Cats: Waiting, Wiggles and More!

Happy Friday! How is everyone holding up? Getting lots of kitty cuddles in if you’re on lockdown? Yesterday, as you’ll see below, we hit our 2nd anniversary of posting our daily chats on Facebook and Instagram. We haven’t missed a day yet…we’ll see if we can keep it up for another year!

Chatty Cats: Mysteries, Drama and More!

Happy Friday! Spring has arrived – yay for that! But as everyone is aware, the world is going through a crisis right now. We’re doing our part by staying home. While I already have the privilege of working from home, Ross started working from home this week as well. Our big outing each day is a long walk (with proper social distancing). I hope that everyone is staying safe. We can get through this together (apart, of course).

Chatty Cats: Time Change, Old Ladies and More!

Happy Friday! It’s raining here in Southern California, which is a nice change for us. But that puts our “cleaning out the catio” plans on hold for the weekend. The cats are really getting on our case about it. They want it in tip-top shape for when it opens again.

Chatty Cats: Laughing, Missing and More!

Happy Friday! Woodrow had his dental cleaning on Monday (which you’ll see below) and had two premolars removed. He was pretty loopy that evening. He was giving everything head bonks – and I mean everything. And really hard too! What a lover he is.

Chatty Cats: Lessons, Burdens and More!

Happy Friday! This week, I watched two documentaries about cats. First up was #cats_the_mewvie on Netflix. While it talks about cats and cat culture, it focuses heavily on Instagram influencers. And while I do have an IG account, I couldn’t identify with any of the people they interviewed. Most (not all) just seem like they want to make money.

Next, I watched Cat Tales on PBS, which is an episode of the show Nova. This episode delved deep into the history of cats, and I found it much more interesting. Note that there are sad parts (in history) that are covered – you have been warned! They also touch on TNR and feature Samantha Martin from The Amazing Acro-Cats! Have you seen either of these documentaries?
