Waiting for our CatDaddy

WAFFLES:  Today’s the day, right Boss? 

KATIE:  Right, Waffles. Gloman arrives early this morning. Did you get him a present?
WAFFLES:  You mean like a rainbow crinkle ball? He likes to play fetch, you know. What’d you get him? Another hairball?
KATIE:  NO. I’m going to shower him with my love. That’s my present.
WAFFLES: But Boss, you don’t like the shower. 
With Gloman, Everything is Pawsible
Ok, maybe not cats-in-showers-pawsible…but when Gloman comes to visit, it’s like the sun is shining, the birds are singing and everything is right in our little corner of the world.

Office Cats

WAFFLES:  This office assistant stuff is making me sleepy.

KATIE:  Well then perhaps you should go get me a snack.
KATIE:  Waffles? Waffles!
WAFFLES:  I’m kind of busy, Boss. I’m supposed to be office assisting, you know.
KATIE:   Whatever, Waffles.
WAFFLES:  Thanks, Boss. I’ll take a snack too. You know, will you’re up.
KATIE:  You’re not going to steal my spot, are you, Waffles?

About Today’s Photos
It’s been unseasonably cool here in the mountains. Fifties and sixties cool. Since the office is the warmest room in the house, that’s where everyone was hanging out today.

Waffles’ spot is the blue chair by the window. It’s got a nice view of the hummingbirds, not that he can see anything with his eyes glued shut.

Katie’s spot is on the sofa, curled up in her gushy blanket.

But the moment she gets up, even for a second, it always becomes Waffles’ spot.

The Paw Touch that Rocked the World

Read More
Two years ago this week, the paw touch that sent our world and our blog spinning hit the interwebs. It’s as shocking today as it was then.

WAFFLES:  So Boss. We’ve been together now for about elebenty seven years.

KATIE:  Actually, it 2 years, 8 months, 21 days, 6 hours and 11 minutes.

WAFFLES:  That’s what I said. Elebenty seven years.

KATIE:  Fine. Elebenty whatever. So just how long are you planning on keeping your paw there? Because for the record, mine was here first. And yours is encroaching.

WAFFLES:  Uh, but when a boy cat and a girl cat go out for elebenty seven years –
WAFFLES:  Yeah, Boss. You know. Like going study and stuff.
KATIE:  You mean going ‘steady’? We are NOT going steady, Waffles. 
WAFFLES:  Does that mean we’re not going to the first base thing?
KATIE:  What, you mean like baseball?
About Today’s SHOCKING Photos

You should have heard Glogirly squealing after she shot these photos this past weekend.

Katie and Waffles HOLDING HANDS??? 

Call CNN!
Call Entertainment Tonight!
Call Jackson Galaxy!

Waffles is fascinated with Katie. He SO wants to engage. After breakfast, Katie trotted over to one of her favorite hang out spots – her big soft pillow by the sliding glass doors. It’s one of the few spots Waffles usually lets her be. Until today.

He walked up to her, sat down just at the edge of her pillow and started meowing. Long, extended meows. Slowly he reached out with his right paw towards her. He carefully set it down right on top of her paw and then laid it on the pillow next to hers.

Then came the stare down.

This was one of those moments Glogirly would pay just about any amount of money to be able to read their minds.

And in case you’re wondering…

These are actual, untouched photographs. NO photoshop trickery was used. For real.

Cats, Watermelons & the Not-So-Famous Harlem Globetrotter

Read More
When Glogirly came home from the grocery store with a watermelon today, she couldn’t resist sharing one of her all-time favorite posts from 2016, featuring the lesser known Harlem Globetrotter–
WAFFLES:  *uuuummmph* Man, this thing is heavy. How do those Harlem Globetrotter guys do it?
KATIE:  Waffles, what on earth are you doing???
WAFFLES:  This isn’t regulation size, Boss. It’s too big. I don’t think I can shoot hoops with it.

KATIE: Shoot hoops??? Seriously? Waffles, that’s a watermelon. Not a basketball. Oh and… you’re a CAT.

WAFFLES:  Wait! I’ve almost got it. Just have to dribble–
KATIE:  Waffles, the only thing you’re capable of dribbling is food onto your chin.

WAFFLES:  He shoots! He scores!

WAFFLES:  And the crowd goes WILD! *AAAAAAAHHHH!*

WAFFLES:  Hey! Where’d the crowd go?
About Today’s Photos
Today’s pics are from Waffles’ first watermelon encounter back when we lived at the Townhouse. Glogirly had just returned home from the market and her arms were so overloaded with grocery bags, she had to set the watermelon down on the floor before she could make it to the kitchen.

We’d heard that some cats like watermelon…but not quite like this.

Can Cats Eat Watermelon?
According to PetMD, cats can eat watermelon. But, and this is a big but… the seeds must be removed. They contain compounds that can be very harmful to cats. The rinds aren’t really recommended either. It’s important to remember that cats are obligate carnivores and therefore incapable of digesting some types of food, in particular, plant matter.

So a meal of watermelon is not a good idea. But a little bite should be just fine.
