Simply a Cat and Dog Moment


Snuggled up on the couch with Doug’s throw quilt over my lap, the sound of the TV is drowned out by the loud squeaking sound of Lucky’s favorite blue toy. SQUEAK-SQUEAK-SQUEEEEEEEEAK it goes, over and over again as Lucky pounces and bites at it, thoroughly enjoying himself.
 
Our cat, Whiskers Jay, sits upright on the coffee table close by, his expression clearly revealing his utter annoyance with the noise which makes me giggle just a little.

SQUEAK-SQUEAK-SQUEAK goes the dog’s toy; HISSSSSSSS goes the cat.
 
Lucky’s bliss is suddenly interrupted as the cat jumps off of the table and stands face-to-face with him.
 
The dog stands motionless, blue squeaky toy at his feet, and he looks confused. Surely he would utter “What?!?!” if he could speak English. The cat bears his teeth and lets out another loud HISSSSSSS and Lucky gets the message. “Oh…must be the blue toy…” he seems to acknowledge, and Whiskers turns and struts away.
For a brief moment Lucky doesn't move, until he makes eye contact with me and notices that I'm smiling. He smiles too and goes back to his business…
SQUEAK-SQUEAK-SQUEAK…
I’m linking up with the lovely Alexa at Trimming the Sails
today for her monthly “Simply a Moment” meme.

I've been reading through everyone's 'moments' this afternoon and it's amazing how many blankets, cats and dogs I'm bumping into! We're all definitely in a cosy home-y frame of mind right now it seems!

Aaaahhhhh, Lucky.....that story made my night. So adorable! I need more D.O.G. in my life! And the name Whiskers Jay kills me every time. That has to be the best cat name....like ever. XOXOXO

This has really made me giggle - you have caught the little exchange so neatly! We don't have any pets but do have a visiting dog from time to time (and about to arrive tomorrow) and I am fascinated by the unspoken communication. Thank you so very much for linking up and joining in again this month - it is always a pleasure to visit.

Oh Lucky makes me laugh! What a cheeky dog!

Karen said...

I love that Lucky is his own dog! Kiera has several squeaky toys and 'chatters' her teeth on them and they make a laughing sound!
