Hug Your Boss Day... or Something Like That

WAFFLES:  Hey, Boss! Do you know what day it is?

KATIE:  Friday. 

WAFFLES:  Nooo! It's not just Friday. It's a really special Friday.

KATIE:  What, you mean like you're planning on leaving me alone-Friday? 

WAFFLES:  Boss, it's National Hug Your Boss Day. Isn't that cool?

KATIE:  I swear, whoever makes up these national days –

WAFFLES:  I know! They're awesome, right?

KATIE:  One cat's awesome is another cat's –

WAFFLES:  Fist bump! 

KATIE:  Waffles, I thought you said it was Hug Your Boss Day, not Fist Bump Your Boss Day.

WAFFLES:  Sprinkle dust!

About Today's Photos
According to, the go-to internet database for all those National Whatever-Whatever days, September 4 is National Hug Your Boss Day. So for Waffles, this ranks right up there with National Hug Your Chicken Day. 

We couldn't resist sharing a few more of photos of the pre-dinnertime games that take place each night here at the Townhouse. 

Muhammed Ali and Joey from Friends would be proud.

Talkin' Turkey & Cheeky Chicken HavePaws GIVEAWAY!

WAFFLES:  Mmmm... HavePaws CHEEKY Chicken! I have paws. And I like chicken. 

KATIE:  Waffles, what have you DONE???

WAFFLES:  Nothing.

KATIE:  Then why are you surrounded by empty treat bags? Shredded, empty treat bags. 

WAFFLES:  I don't know.

KATIE:  Don't you know we're supposed to be tasting and reviewing these for our giveaway? 

WAFFLES:  I already tasted them, Boss. Just doing my part.

KATIE:  Way to go, Waffles. It looks like a crime scene around here.

WAFFLES:  Crime scene?

FROM THE EDITOR:  Please note the grey duffle bag in the above photograph. It was zipped shut. Completely zipped shut. The zipper, known to be sticky, requires that Glogirly use two hands to open it. The unopened treats were safely packed away inside a Ziploc freezer bag, inside said duffle. That is all.

*One week later, after Glogirly emailed the HavePaws treat man. Subject line: Houston, we have a problem.*

HavePaws is something special.
We've known Noah Falkie of HavePaws for quite some time now. We've been in touch regularly as he's been developing his new line of jerky treats for cats and dogs. The moment we first heard his story, we knew he was working on something very special.

Like many pet parents, Noah wanted to do right by his furry family. Especially when it came to nutrition. He researched appropriate diets for cats and dogs and compared them to the ingredients listed on their food. He was astounded and disappointed to find what was actually in those foods was in many cases, anything but healthy. He promised himself he'd do whatever he could to make a difference.

In 2013 the first HavePaws recipe was born and in early 2014 HavePaws licensed it's first pet food manufacturing facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Their mission is to give the pets of America a food that is healthy and nourishing, not just words on a label.

Nothing but the good stuff.
Many commercial-brand pet treats use artificial flavorings, colorings and preservatives in their treats. Ingredients you can't pronounce, let alone recognize.

HavePaws is different. Their small batch pet treats only contain fresh and locally grown meats, and vitamins and minerals that you know and understand. Their treats are always grain and gluten free, and have none of those artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. HavePaws ingredients.

The taste test.
The duffle bag story is true. You can't make that stuff up. To say that Katie and especially Waffles love these treats is an understatement. When Glogirly opened up a bag, the first thing she noticed was how yummy they smelled. Like real food. 

And the treats look like real food. The jerky chips, available in Talkin' Turkey and Cheeky Chicken, are substantial and meaty. At first Glogirly broke them off into small pieces, but when Waffles grabbed a slab and ran she saw how much fun he was having tearing into the whole thing. He was able to easily chew and break off smaller pieces. It kept him occupied for a few glorious minutes while Katie was able to enjoy hers without fear of Waffles' food thieving tendencies.

The treats are reasonably priced at $4.99 for a 2 ounce bag and $6.99 for a 4 ounce bag. Shipping is free on all orders. We LOVE free shipping! There's no 'treat dust' in these bags... nothing but yummy, meaty goodness.

We're very excited about this giveaway! TWO lucky GLOGIRLY readers will receive a six-pack of the Talkin' Turkey Jerky Chips AND a six-pack for their favorite shelter. 

Though the prizes may only ship to US addresses, we invite our friends and readers worldwide to enter and gift their prize to a US friend and shelter should they win.

Despite Waffles' enthusiastic package opening skills, these are not self-serve treats. Good luck convincing your cats of that.

Regardless of the payment received, we only feature products and services on GLOGIRLY that we use or feel our readers would benefit from using.

Waffles' HAM Radio #WafflesWednesday

WAFFLES:  Testing, 1-2-Chicken. Can you hear me? Helloooo?

WAFFLES:  What's your 20? Uh, 19?

WAFFLES:  This thing's broken. How am I supposed to talk to the chicken if it's broken? 

Huh?  It's a HAM radio??? Really?

WAFFLES:  I like ham.

About Today's Photos 
Today's photos are some of our 2014 favorites. This was Waffles' first encounter with the bathroom sink. We especially love these because they highlight his goofy personality and sweet naiveté. Of all the cats Glogirly has ever known, Waffles is by far the most curious. Even today, he's like a little kid trying to figure out how things work. 

And in case you're wondering... Yes, he discovered how the bathroom faucet works. 

Sorry, no photos of that! 

We've got a very cool giveaway tomorrow! You just might want to stop back. *wink*
