Ear Lessons

KATIE:  Waffles, what on earth are you doing???



WAFFLES:  I'm practicing. 

KATIE:  Practicing what? A deer in headlights?

WAFFLES:  No, my ears.

KATIE:  Practicing your ears???

WAFFLES:  You know, like yours. If I stick my head up against the roof of my cat bed, I can make my ears look just like your ears.



KATIE:  What a rookie.

Ground Control to Waffles: We Have a Winner

WAFFLES:  Uh, hello Boss? Come in, Boss?

KATIE:  I read you, Waffles. What's your 20? Over.



WAFFLES:  20? What do mean? Like chickens?  I haven't seen 20 chickens, have you?

KATIE:  No, Waffles. Not CHICKENS. Your 20 is your location. Where are you? Over.

WAFFLES:  How come you keep saying 'over'? We're just getting started, aren't we?



KATIE:  Waffles, hurry up and get down here. We've got a winner to announce. Over.

WAFFLES:  Did somebody win a chicken dinner? 

KATIE:  Waffles! Last I looked, KFC was not a sponsor of our blog. So enough already with the CHICKEN. Over.

WAFFLES:  You can never have enough chicken, Boss.

KATIE:  *sigh* Over.



Winner, Winner, Splendid Beast Awesome Oil Painting Winner!
Congratulations to Nancy Blue Moon and her kitty, Rascal. They are the lucky winners of our Splendid Beast giveaway!

Rascal, Nancy's beloved tabby-buddy, has been missing for a few months now. Though Nancy is heartbroken and misses him terribly, she prays he was taken in by someone who just might see one of the many ads and flyers she's posted. Nancy describes her Rascal as a sweet kitty that can win you over with just one look and a tiny meow.  Oh, and it looks like he's a napping champion too.
We're keeping them both in our thoughts and pray for Rascal's safe return.




Splendid Beast is Helping Shelter Cats
Our friends at Splendid Beast are making a difference in the lives of harder-to-adopt pets in the most unique and beautiful way through their Splendid Friends program. Currently they're working with Minnesota's Feline Rescue, a shelter near and dear to our hearts. Every two weeks, they choose an older or special needs cat who's been waiting to be adopted. 

The hope is that the portrait will help the shelter to promote adoptions, especially of those cats, who for one reason or another, are harder to find homes for. Then when the cat is adopted, their portrait goes home with them!

Who Decides What Kind of Portrait They'll Paint? 
YOU DO! They post the cat's photo on their Splendid Friends website and Facebook page, along with a selection of costumes and backgrounds. Then you get to choose which painting template you'd like to see them in.

You'll also be able to read about the cat, learn their story and what makes them so special. Right now they're featuring Nadya, a Mother-of-the-Year cat we introduced you to on our blog just a few months ago (here.) Be sure to stop by Splendid Friends and choose the painting you think is just right for Nadya!

Special thanks to Tom & Ben of Splendid Beast for sponsoring our fantastic giveaway and using their  amazing talents to help shelter pets find homes. 




We received our custom oil paintings at no charge at no charge from Splendid Beast. We also received a small fee to cover the time it takes to photograph the paintings, write the review and administer the giveaway.  Receiving the paintings and the fee did not influence our article or anything we say.  We only feature products and services on GLOGIRLY that we love, believe in and use. All sponsored posts on GLOGIRLY will always reflect our honest and unbiased opinions. ...and if you haven't guessed by now, we LOVE Splendid Beast.

Tail Enhancements


WAFFLES:  Hey Boss? My tail won't fit inside this thing.

KATIE:  What, you haven't been ordering stuff from the back of that mancat magazine again have you?

WAFFLES:  Huh?

KATIE:  Waffles, you've got the bed turned sideways, on it's end. 



WAFFLES:  Yeah, and my tail won't fit. 

KATIE:  You already said that, Waffles. Try turning the bed the RIGHT way.



WAFFLES:  You mean like this?

KATIE:  I don't know how you mancats walk around with those things.
