Snow Cat Friday

WAFFLES:  Boss! Did you see all the new snow? It's almost as tall as I am! What are we going to do?

KATIE:  Colorado is no different than Minnesota, Waffles. When it snows we nap. For that matter, when it's sunny we nap. 

WAFFLES:  I don't know, Boss. It looks really deep. I'm just going to stay up here where it's safe.

KATIE:  For crying out loud, Waffles, it's not snowing inside. I swear, you're just looking for another excuse to climb the ladder. 

It's Winter Again!
We have a fresh blanket of fluffy snow here in the mountains. So far about 5 inches, but it's still sprinkling down a bit. Given our crazy-steep driveway, it's a good thing we're all stocked up on cat food and chicken noodle soup. Sorry, Glogirly - pizza delivery and Bite Squad are a thing of the past.

Working Out with Katie & Waffles

WAFFLES:  So Boss, now that Glogirly's got our new workout room set up, don't you think you should be working out?

 KATIE:  Don't you think you should be minding your own beeswax, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  I'm just saying, you might want to think about working out. Bees??? What bees?

KATIE:  Things are working out just fine, Waffles. That is, as long as you stay on that side of the weight bench.

WAFFLES:  Why, are the bees on this side of the weight bench?

KATIE:  For crying out loud, Waffles. There are no bees. You've got to learn to relax. 

WAFFLES:  How am I supposed to relax if there's bees?

About Today's Photos
Little by little, Glogirly is finally getting our new home set up. Now that the workout room is up and running, (or rather the workout corner of a very small room) she's got no more excuses. 

And speaking of working out...Katie continues to surprise all of us with how comfortable she is in her new space. Like some of you mentioned in your comments the other day, it's as if she hit a reset button. Things that used to make her uncomfortable or nervous have completely melted away. She's relaxed, enjoying playtime and basking in the sunshine on the workout room rug. 

We've had painters here this week too, so lots of unusual activity and new people. Today, Katie made history. When Richie the painter bent down to say hello, she trotted over to him to sniff his hand, let him touch her and gave him a few of her soft meow-chirps. She's never, EVER done this for anyone other than immediate family. In fact, if Glogirly hadn't seen it with her own two eyes she'd never have believed it.

Things really are working out.

Cats in the Closet

*EAR WORM ALERT - Cats in the Cradle by Harry Chapin*
WAFFLES:  ...and the cats in the closet in the afternoon, little boy cat and the man on the moon. ♩♫ 

KATIE:  Way to ruin a perfectly good nap, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  You don't like my song, Boss?

KATIE:  I was hoping for a little Simon & Garfunkle. 

WAFFLES:  ...hello dark meat, my old friend. I'd like to eat you once again.♩♫ 

KATIE:  I was hoping for The Sound of Silence. 

About Today's Photos
While continuing to unpack boxes today, Glogirly realized she hadn't seen Katie or Waffles since breakfast. She looked high and low, checked out every sun puddle, but no Katie and no Waffles. It wasn't until she flipped the light on in the closet to grab a sweater that she found them napping side by side in their Sleepypods.
