Ellie Mae's deep thoughts [and more]

Ellie Mae is "busy" and doesn't want to be disturbed. Yet no one can mind their own beeswax and let her be! It's hard being the "brainy" one in the family; no one understands how hard it is for her!

EM: Ellie Mae Kat [black, gorgeously floofy lady cat] 
L: Latte [tortie/tabby lady cat aka "Kitten"] 
MK: Momma Kat [Latte and Ellie's human Momma, named Kat] 
The Boy: Momma's fiance, Daddy to Latte and Ellie 

MK: {walking into the room} Ellie?
EM: I'm busy.
MK: {looking around} You're just lying there!
EM: And having deep thoughts! 

MK: Ummm ....
L: {walking into the room} What about deep thoughts?
EM: I'm having them.
L: What?
EM: Thoughts. That are deep.
L: What?
MK: I know what you were going to say!
L: Not only do you have eyes in the back of your head, but you also have eyes INSIDE my head. It's freaky! Is there some Mom course where you learn this kind of stuff?
MK: No. It's well-earned experience.
L: So, Ellie, what are these "deep thoughts" you're having?
EM: Oh, I don't know.

L: What do you mean you don't know?
EM: They are so deep, I don't know what they are. OBVIOUSLY.
L: Then how do you know you're having them?
EM: Because I'm getting tired. Thinking deep thoughts is a lot of work.

L: But ...
L: How do you know whether you're having deep thoughts or no thoughts at all? If you're thinking about something, you should know what it is!
EM: I'm thinking that you're bossy and annoying.
L: But those aren't your deep thoughts.
EM: No! Because if they were my deep thoughts, I wouldn't know what they are! Don't you have deep thoughts?
L: I guess not.
EM: Only smart cats have deep thoughts.

L: If you qualify as smart ... I definitely do not.
EM: Thank you!
L: That wasn't a ...
The Boy: What's going on?
L: Ellie's having deep thoughts.
The Boy: Umm ... about what?
EM: Am I the only one who thinks deep thoughts around here?
L: Is that what we're calling it now? I thought we just called that being ...
EM: You all are totally interrupting my deep thoughts!

L: We wouldn't want to do that!
EM: Thank you!
L: I'm speechless.
EM: FINALLY! I wonder if Woodrow is having deep thoughts. And if any of those deep thoughts are about me?
MK: Let's just leave that alone.
L: You're no fun!

The water fountain attacks!

L: AH! AH! I'm wet! I'm wet! The water fountain attacked me ... {huffing and puffing} ...
{Kat and The Boy laugh uncontrollably}
L: Why are you laughing? {HUFF} {PUFF} The water bowl {HUFF} {PUFF} attacked me!
EM: Whoa.
L: You can stop laughing now!!!
{They keep laughing}
EM: I am never going near that water fountain again! I never trusted all that ... bubbling!
{Kat and The Boy laugh even harder}
L: What is wrong with you? I'm wet!

MK: You just streaked right through the water bowl! It didn't attack you!
L: Yes, it did! Out of nowhere!
MK: No. You zoomed and careened right through the fountain!
EM: I don't know ... you can't trust something that bubbles ...
L: Maybe you missed this, but the back half of my body is WET!
L: Ellie appreciates what I'm going through!
The Boy: That's not exactly ...
EM: I hate getting wet!

{Latte and Ellie sit there and watch the fountain for future attacks}
The Boy: You know she's not going to drink from that fountain again, right? She'd rather die of dehydration than get near that fountain again.
MK: They do have another water bowl. But I'll keep an eye on her.
{UPDATE: Latte is drinking from the water fountain as usual ... Ellie is still a bit skeptical, but she prefers the other water bowl and is using that}

Momma's New Phone

What's the first thing you do when you get a new phone? Take pictures of you cuddling your cats! The pictures are still not as good as I'd like, but they are a step up from my last phone! I mean, isn't taking pictures of one's cats the whole reason for getting a phone?

Someone needs to explain to Ellie Mae that cats are "apathetic to human presence." In the meantime, I'll enjoy all the head butts, cuddles, and velcro-fabulousness of my girl. I love her too.

  5. Latte, the other day Mudpie was asleep by the back door when we had a downpour. She came into the living room quite wet, and it didn't bother her a bit!

    1. I don't mind getting wet on my terms. I love to play in water. But this was a sneak attack! ~Latte

  6. Oh we agree, those deep thoughts do take it out of you!

  7. Those are some very deep thoughts. I didn't know you had a thing for Woodrow. :) XO

  8. Ellie Mae, we feel you. Those deep thoughts are exhausting! Momma Kat, hooray for your new phone. Of COURSE its main function is taking pics of your kitties! :)

    1. I don't know how you humans think all day long! I thought being cute was exhausting! ~Ellie Mae

  9. Thinking deep thoughts can be exhausting, even more so when you don't know what they are.

  10. Amarula: Latte Frodo get attacked by the water bowl all the time! (I've been accused of dumping the bowl on him of course, but I am totally innocent)

    1. Haha. There are definitely times I want to dump my water bowl on Ellie. ~Latte

  11. Ellie Mae, you and Woodrow definitely have the same type of deep thoughts. So deep you don't know what they are. But I'm 100% sure he thinks about you.

    1. Really?!?! If Woodrow has the same type of deep thoughts as me, then they are worth the effort! ~Ellie Mae
