Cat Harnesses, Butterfly Wings & Earworms

Cat and butterfly,  ♫♩
Up in the air we like to fly!  ♫♩
Cat and butter–

KATIE:  Waffles, you may like flying high, but I'm going to keep my paws firmly on the ground. Besides, everyone knows the song is, "DOG and Butterfly." 

WAFFLES:  Well that's dumb. Everyone knows dogs don't fly.

KATIE:  Yeah well, cats don't either. 

WAFFLES:  That's not true either, Boss. 
I believe I can fly. ♫♩
I believe I can touch the sky. ♫♩

KATIE:  Waffles, enough with the ear worms already. 

WAFFLES:  I bet I can fly from my cat tree all the way up to that window. Want to see?

KATIE:  You mean the window above our drinking fountain? That didn't work out too well for you the other day.


KATIE:  Yeah, I don't think you've got enough wind beneath those wings of yours.

WAFFLES:  But Boss, I thought you were the wind beneath my wings.

About Today's Photos
Today's photos are from the fall of 2015 shortly after Waffles got his new orange harness. When Glogirly saw the orange butterfly wings at the store, all her common sense flew out that tall window Waffles likes so much and she brought them home. 

We're not big on costumes and clothing, but both Katie and Waffles do great in their Puppia Harnesses. Although they're made for dogs, the small is a perfect fit for each of them and fits comfortably and securely. So when Glogirly gets that crazy urge to add a little something-something to Katie & Waffles' wardrobe, she tries to limit the accessories to small add-ons that can be easily attached to a harness. A simple bow tie, crocheted flower, patch or in this case... a pair of butterfly wings. 

Of course Katie and Waffles, like most cats, love the au naturale look best. But if you're up for an adventure outside the house, perhaps a little walkabout in the grass or a shopping trip to your local pet food store, a harness and leash is a must.

Party at the Vet

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Where're we going? Are we going to a party? With games and stuff?

KATIE:  Well if by game you mean, Where's the Thermometer...then party on, Waffles.  

WAFFLES:  Wait. WHAT??? 

WAFFLES:  What a ripoff, Boss. We're so not going to a party. 

KATIE:  You're just figuring that out now?

WAFFLES:  So Boss, how come you never have to play Where's the Thermometer?

KATIE:  I've got a special Where's the Thermometer waiver on my chart.

WAFFLES:  I need to get me one of those. Do they have them on Amazon? We have Prime.

KATIE:  Better turn around, Waffles. The one with the gloves is right behind you.

WAFFLES:  Uh oh.

About Today's Vet Visit
Besides yesterday being the hottest day of the year here in Minneapolis, it was also vet visit day for Katie and Waffles. They both had their rabies vaccinations and weigh ins. Waffles delighted in Dr. Karlin telling him he was a perfect mancat. Perfect weight, perfect physique, perfect personality... she really has no idea how much this is all going to go to his head.

Katie was delighted to learn she needs to gain a few ounces and can have a smidge more food at mealtime. She was less than delighted though to have her senior bloodwork done. And a urinalysis.

As for Where's the Thermometer, it's true - based on Katie's reputation of spirited protests, she is indeed exempt from the taking of the temperatures.

Just a little schmear of food and Waffles never saw the thermometer coming.

Birthday Cards & Cats

WAFFLES:  Wow, Boss. You write really good. 

KATIE:  Well, Waffles. I write really well. 

WAFFLES:  Well, you write really good. 

But what do you mean by "Waffles should just move into the powder room and how about I pack his bags?" 

KATIE:  Nothing to be concerned about, Waffles. This is between me, Glogirly and her birthday card. How about you focus on your own card for her?

WAFFLES:  I got her a card AND a crinkle ball.

KATIE:  You mean you got you a crinkle ball. I suppose you got her another card with another orange cat on it. Probably doing something silly like dancing under a disco ball.

About Today's Photos - A Birthday Recap
Glogirly has been SO touched by all of the heartfelt birthday greetings she received from friends and readers here on our blog and on our Facebook page. We truly have the best friends in the world, that's for sure! We're so grateful our blog has introduced us to such awesome people, cats, dogs, goats, ferrets and hamsters from all over the world. We started blogging way back in June of 2009 and never in our wildest catnap dreams did we imagine we'd be here today. Surely Katie didn't see Waffles' coming either!

Gloman and Glogirly have a fun tradition of hiding cards for each other around the townhouse on birthdays and holidays. And there's always a card from Katie and one from Waffles too. ...usually positioned by an empty food dish.

Yesterday (Glogirly's bday) was no exception. What Waffles lacks in penmanship and grammar he makes up for in cuteness. Though now he's going to need a disco ball and a new white suit.

WAFFLES:  White suit??? 

Rare Glogirly Sighting
Last, in honor of the birthday girl, we thought you might like to see her birthday self-portrait she took just yesterday. She doesn't often make a personal appearance here on the blog, what with always being the one behind the camera, but here she is... cat eye glasses and all. 

Wait. She's still behind the camera.
