Katie & Waffles Too: Face 2 Face


Hi everyone, Katie here.

He's out. Waffles Too has officially come out of the kitten room. After our supervised Meet-and-Greet I wrote of yesterday, Glogirly & Gloman decided (without my consultation I might add) they saw no reason Waffles Too and I couldn't spend the day together with the run of the townhouse ...under their watchful eyes.

Waffles Too THINKS he can stalk me.

That kitten was EVERYWHERE. I had no idea anything could move that fast. I just sat back and watched the show. It's like watching Animal Planet TV on steroids. Truth be told, it's kind of entertaining. So much so that I haven't even had reason to lower my ears into the aircraft position.

For the most part we kept our distance. But when Waffles Too approached, and crossed that sacred line, I countered with a well articulated hiss.

The Money Shot: "Tell Me How You REALLY Feel"

Only once did the pea eyed monster return fire. He caught on quickly though and began to walk around me, maintaining a 24" no fly zone.

Stand Off at the OK Wand Toy

Toys. Can you say *AWKWARD?* To Waffles, the world is his toy. This includes all of MY toys. Sometimes the lure of the wand toy causes him to cross the no-fly zone, thus resulting in another hiss exchange.  Waffles doesn't let it get him down though. He doesn't cower into a corner or run for cover. He just hops away and moves on to the next shiny object. He's got chutzpah and the attention span of a gnat. 

Glogirly is home much of the time now, so she's been able to watch Waffles and make sure he doesn't blatantly screw up. When she leaves to get groceries or go to the gym, she puts Waffles back in the Kitten Room. She also puts him back at bedtime. She probably wants to make sure the little monster doesn't attack me in my sleep. For that, I am grateful.


For the most part, this kitten invasion has been turbulence free. The seat belt sign is off and we are now free to walk about the townhouse.  

But Waffles, be careful where you step.

  2. Remarkable restraint!
    It's hard to train them to take the rap, but with such a sweet face he will beat any charge. This can be useful!

  3. These are wonderful photos.

    I like how Waffles appears to be licking at the toy and giving you a look like, "What?"

    And the double-hiss photo. Whew.

    Waffles seems like a confident kitty. But, not TOO confident.

  4. He better let you eat ALL the salmon when it comes out. He acts up, you let me know. We'll lock him and Hammy in a room together (worst punishment for both of them)

  5. Double hiss! Wow, what a shot!
    Looks like you two are on your way to peaceful coexistance? I hope hope hope!

  6. Our offer still stands to send Princeton out to wear him down!

  7. Hmmm!!! We wonder how long it'll be before we see Waffles Too in handcuffs?!!!

  8. I can't believe that pipsqueak had the cajones to hiss back! Well, if he DOES have cajones, he won't have them for much longer anyway.

  9. Katie, you have shown Waffles who is BOSS and that is important. But we are really glad the seatbelt sign is off and that things are going so well. It will be fun for you to have him around. Keep a girl young!

  10. Brilliant update and glad it is all going to plan. No fly zone! BOL funny. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. The pictures are really great. Someone has a future in wildlife photography! I think the double hiss was the money shot. Around here Mistletoe still hisses at us boys when we cross the line, but we can all co-exist as long as I, Hitch, don't chase her. Then the ruckus really starts! For some reason I just can't help giving chase when she gives me that, don't come near me, look. But is you're going to live with cats you have to expect we'll act like cats! Meow! Ha!
    It looks like everyone's doing well at casa Glo.
    Purrs to you!

  12. Next it will be the communal grooming shot Ahhhhhhh! So sweet xx

  13. There's something about those little redheaded kittens that makes them have no fear. Newton was like that, too. Wait until you wake up one day and find him curled up with you when you didn't mean to cuddle with him! (We can't wait to see that picture next) Those kittens are sooo sneaky.

  14. Katie just look at it this way Waffles Too makes the purrfect scape goat. Glogirly's favorite whatever gets knocked off, well it's obvious Waffles did it.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You know, Katie, that YOU were once the size of Waffles Too and probably were just like him. :-)

    Anyway, we're glad for a good update...Seems the integration is going well.

    And it's absolutely correct that he will be your scapegoat. LOL.

  16. Oh my! Katie what big teeth you have!!! We heard that hiss all the way over here!

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOL @ Pasha's comment! Katie, I can loan you those cuffs if you want.

  18. This is the encounter I've been waiting for!

    Katie, I don't think Glogirly locks up Waffles Too for concern about what he might do to you...considering your recent comments to him.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Isn't this interesting... Gloman started all of this, years ago, and wasn't even a "cat guy," now look what happened!! There are two of you!! Hmmm.... you only have to get six more to catch up to us! Are you game?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Deb is right: the more the merrier as long as they're not in MY condo. HAH! Seriously, is this W2 paying off the photographer. In 60% of those photos you were just a blur in the background or foreground. You should be the cat in focus or they need a wider lens. Anyway, try to ignore the interloper and get your beauty sleep just in case they want to take YOUR picture.

  21. The under the table shot is priceless

  22. This makes me miss having a kitten! Katie - AJee is in your corner! Waffles - Marlin understands what it's like being the new cat in the house & has your back! Happy hissing (until you bond, that is)! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well Katie at least the little tyke seems to be a quick study! And he gets "hiss cues"!

    He'll learn .....

    PURRS!

  27. Whap him NOW! While he is small! That way when he gets big, he will still fear the power of the Big Sister!

  28. OMG I am rolling!! Next to your adoption series, this is THE BEST!! Your translation of what Katie is thinking is pure genius.....(this needs to be a BOOK!)
    The expression on Katie's face in the first photo and the barely discernible raising of one of her paws is priceless.
    Her hovering by the chair leg watching Waffles Too play..

    I was thinking though, what about having Waffles play with something that isn't Katie's?

    This is just wonderful!

  29. We think "gnat" is rather generous of you, Katie.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Well Miss Katie it looks like Waffles Too gave back a hiss. We have been hearing that little hissing at our place too. Youngsters...sheesh!

    ReplyDelete
  31. We are glad to hear your intro went so well :)

    You two will be great friends and sleepin' buddies in no time!

  32. I am very much impressed with how you've handled the arrival of Waffles Too, Katie! Believes me when I say that our resident diva -- Queen Abby -- was not nearly so nice when we brought Smudge home. In fact, she STILL likes to bonk him on the head sometimes and he's been living here since APRIL! Yeesh!

  33. OMC - the cute monster (errrr. I mean) the monster is out! GASP. Katie, I'm amazed you are still alive! I've heard those thigns called kittens run on high voltage all day and are the Energizer Battery and never wear out! I'm coming to rescue you. (M is laughing, can you imagine that she has the nerve to take the monster's side!)

  35. Wow. You're getting off easy. When my fursibs came there were two of them at once and no introduction period. We just got thrown in together!

    Make sure you lay down the law to Waffles Too and that he knows you're the boss. If you train him up right from the start he'll be a lot less trouble later.

  36. OOohh. Free Animal Planet 24/7! Live from the Townhouse.... it's Katie and her crazy sib Waffles!

  37. I'm so sorry, Clyde took one look at that toy and we are now fighting him off the keyboard. We have that same one but it must be kept under lock and key. Clyde drags it around the house and since it's wire That Woman gets really nervous. No accidental garrouting!

    The hissy shot is the best. It will be all that much sweeter when in a few months the mutual head grooming and spooning occurs.

  38. What great pictures and commentary! Just think, Katie, you don't have to worry the next time you get "ACCUSED." Just say that Waffles Too did it. MOL!

  42. Precious Katie, we think you and adorable Waffles will soon be best of friends...It's always fun to have a "partner in crime" you know :) and of course, when there is more than one of you, your parents will never know who to blame!!hehe...Happy weekend, sweet friends...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  43. Just don't tell Waffles that he's a tiny kitten... he doesn't seem to realize it.
    Great pictures- packed with drama and tension!

    Pets and kisses to Katie. She's doing very well.

    xxoo

  44. You are showing admirable constraint considering he hissed back at you.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think SOMEONE needs to school him about why it is NOT OK to hiss at his Betters. Heh heh.

    The Human thinks he is pretty squee-worthy and says he can hiss at her anytime.

    XOXOXO my Patient Darling

  46. We're pretty amazed at how fast Raz can go too. Waffles Too is going to be a great little bro for you. He'll be able to learn a lot from you!!

  47. Well Katie, ya sure done good! And Waffles Too sure done kitten!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow! You kitties both behaved very well! Kittens are so fun with their heads full of fluff (at least for the humans). We figured Glogirly was spending lots of time with WT cause she hasn't been around much. Who can blame her!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Waffles you make our hearts melt like maple butter you are so darn cute...
    Katie, it looks as though you will soon have a new best friend and snuggle partner. Sweet!

  50. I'm so happy to hear things are going so well.

  51. I'm glad that Waffles Too has some respect. You'll soon whip him into shape. And yes, wonderful photos! Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.

    ReplyDelete
  52. You and Waffles Too are both showing great restraint - more than I can say for Louie and me, Skootch. Louie bothered poor me so much that we had to get ANOTHER kitten for Louie to play with. Now there are 2 EVIL KITTENS in the house!! The only good thing about that is they tend to ignore me and beat up each other instead.
