Table For One


Hi everyone, Katie here.

"Table for one." Such lonely words for humans. In fact, Glogirly would rather wolf down her dinner in a to-go container from the comfort of her car than utter those three lonely words to the restaurant hostess.  She says it takes confidence to eat alone...or at least a good book.

Not if you're a CAT. For me, eating alone is bliss. It's how life should be. And it's tantamount to survival, what with Waffles Too always horning in on my dish. The orange beast has no manners.


If he's not mounting me like a pro wrestler, (who can forget the infamous humping photo seen round the world?) he's twirling like a top around my dish. He knows he's not supposed to eat my food, but he's completely fascinated by it. Stupid kitten. Doesn't he know I'm eating the "diet" food?  HE'S the one with the yummy high-calorie kitten kibble.



Thank Cod SOMEONE was thinking. In an effort to maintain peace, (and keep me from starvation) Glogirly has recently opened up the rooftop dining section of the Townhouse. Now Waffles Too is eating his food high atop the climbing tower.  He can even watch Bird TV from his table.  His table for ONE.

  1. Definitely better to dine alone! Our compliments to the purrson who decided to move this little chow-hound up to the climbing tower. Good move!

  2. OMC "rooftop dining section" I am dying!! Look at him! He doesn't take his eyes off of you Katie!! lol!!!
    I am with Glogirly about not loving dining alone unless I have a good book, but Katie you sure have made me rethink my stance on that!
    Another brilliant post!

  3. Oh, how I wish I could dine alone. Abbi is always taking my food. Abbi says it's nice to know she isn't the only one on a diet these days. Purrs, Ateret

  4. Lucky Waffles Too.

    Tell Glogirly that there is something fun and mysterious about dining alone. Especially at a high end restaurant.

  5. With Binga around, I need my own place to eat too - or she will steal ALL my dinner!

  6. Poor Katie, no peace at the supper table! Well, at least they're working on it, putting him out of reach will help. Help him not get swatted I suspect!

  7. Katie,
    Tell you what, while the rest of them hooligans get to dine en masse, I, on the other hand, always dine alone...on the kitchen cabinet. Complete with Mama's crooning and neck scritches. purrr....meow!

  10. Katie, Waffles is learning. Great teaching. He has his you have yours. I eat with my Pip not far from each other but as we eat so quick no worries. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. The rooftop dining section is awesome! We all eat in separate rooms, behind closed doors, a legacy of the days when there was kitten food, kidney diet food, and regular cat food all being served to different cats at the same time. We should have thought of the rooftop idea!

  12. Wow! We love his table! Those beasts always want what they can't have!

  13. That rooftop dining idea is a good one but will you go and have your dessert up there? I have to eat in a separate ROOM, otherwise Audrey comes and eats mine too.

  14. Y'know what, Katie? We eat separately most of the time too. Wally would eat all my foods if given the chance. Must be an orange cat thing....

  15. MomKatt says she really enjoys eating alone and ALWAYS brings a good book with her ... of course, that's a regular rule no matter WHERE she goes. She says whenever she thinks, "Oh, I won't need a book, I'll only be a few minutes!" she inevitably regrets it 'cause she ends up being wherever she is longer than "a few minutes"!

    Nice rooftop dining area! But that lets him spy on you, Katie ... I hope you don't mind being watched while you eat.

    PURRS!

  16. It looks like you guys have it figured out! Cocco is definitely a table for one kind of pig. Our cats happily share but add Cocco to the mix and mayhem occurs!

    Oink oink,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

  17. We agree with you. It's much better when you eat ALONE.

  18. One good thing when he's in your face, Katie--he's not sneaking up behind you to try you-know-what.

  20. We wouldn't mind some rooftop dining! Our dishes are a bit of a space between each other, but we share regardless!

  21. MOL - there is no such thing as "dining for one" at our house... musical bowls is more like it. No matter who has what, even if it is IDENTICAL, whatever someone else has is better... ALWAYS...

  22. What a dining spot, Waffles Too! That's like dining in SkyCity at the Space Needle...well, maybe not :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sounds like Waffles TOO got the best diningseat :)

  26. We agree, Katie. For kitties, solo dining is best! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Isn't Katie suppose to have the best dining table as the eldest? But like Deb, we also have musical bowls here where cats change bowls thinking the other has better food. Just like kids!

  28. Allie: *eyeroll* Boycats are soooooo ridiculous. I mean, he doesn't seriously want the *cough* "diet" *cough* food - does he?

  29. Katie
    He still is eying you pretty darn carefully!

  30. Katie what has happened??!! We haven't been keeping up with our blogging lately (ok, mom has been claiming she's busy...) and look what happens. Glogirly adopts an orinch interloper!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh Wow! Me sees that Waffles Too likes to gives yous a running commentary while he eats!

  32. Ji Katie, my dad dosen't mind eating alone, particularly when he's out of town on business. We don't usually eat alone here. There's 4 of us and we all take our meals together. It's probably better that Waffles too eat alone though.

  33. must be exhausting for you, Katie - having to constantly resist his Incurably Adorable Condition and keep away from his Cutie-pie Cooties. Day in, day out. I'm tired just thinking about it. Keep up the good work, tho.'

  34. Poor Katy. Waffles too has no manners. We didn't see that humping photo yet, we must be living under a rock.

    ReplyDelete
  35. We are sometimes "exchanging" our food with little K. Ahem. Please don't tell the human (same as you, I have diet food - yuck! - and little K has yummy kitten food).

    Give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he is just trying to integrate...

  36. Rooftop dining sounds like a very good idea. At least you can see what he is doing when he is up there.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh wow--Waffles, is quite the plateful, eh? Will be something to see as he grows! Tommy does a table for "one" quite a bit--says the spur of the moment stuff doesn't always set well with her human friends---so good book, iPad or text book she heads out!
