Katie & Waffles: Honorary Fire Safety CATS

Hi everyone, Katie & Waffles On-A-Stick-Here.

One of the highlights of our trip to BlogPaws was meeting our friends, Firefighter Dayna & Molly The Fire Safety Dog. I know, I know... Molly's a DOG. But she DOES wear a pretty black and white coat and she even likes cats. Glogirly became friends with Dayna & Molly when she designed their blog, business cards and swag for them. They really wanted to put their best paws forward for BlogPaws.

Dayna & Molly's business cards

They surprised us with an amazing honor. They made us HONORARY FIRE SAFETY CATS!!! We even got hats. (The jury's still out on whether the REAL Katie & Waffles will want to wear their hats...but us flat cats think they're pretty cool.)

Their blog, Fire Safety Rocks, was a finalist in the Nose-to-Nose Awards for Best Cause Blog. When Dayna and Molly were unexpectedly called away from BlogPaws to appear at a fire safety event in New York City, they asked US if we would accept the award on their behalf, should they be lucky enough to win. And they DID!!!

Because an important part of fire safety is being prepared, Molly the Fire Safety Dog pre-recorded an acceptance speech that Glogirly was to play on her iPhone into the microphone up on stage.

When emcee David Frei (the voice of Westminster) announced Fire Safety Rocks as the Best Cause Blog Winner, Glogirly ran to the stage with both of us, Katie & Waffles On-A-Stick in one hand and her iPhone in the other. (We even wore our hats.) She didn't have enough hands for everything so the emcee had to hold us while she played Molly's speech into the microphone. I bet David Frei had never held a couple of flat cats wearing fireman helmets before!

Just click below to hear what Molly had to say. (She even mentioned Katie & Waffles, the Fire Safety Cats!)

  1. You met awsome furry friends at BlogPaws ! Great ! Loupi and Zorro

  2. The male person loves your hats he being fire chief and all. He is all for fire safety!

  3. That is pawsome! We wonder if Waffles was an "ornery" member, not honorary member! MOL MOL MOL!!!

  4. Congratulations to them. We are so pleased you are now fire safety cats. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. The mom thought Molly the Fire Safety Dog was so cool! And congrats to them for winning the Best Cause Blog award! And we heard about how Flat Katie and Flat Waffles got to wear fire hats. We think it's probably a better idea (and easier) for the flats to wear stuff rather than the real Katie and Waffles! ;)

  6. Yea to Molly and Dayna! Will you be sharing Fire Safety tips for pets with us now that you have your hats?
    Harry, Dexter and Tipp

  7. Wow, that's pretty cool--making fire safety cool instead of scary! Nice job!

  8. It was really neat how you were both made honourary fire safety cats. Just be careful not to let your flat selves get too close to any flames, though. Okay? purrs

  9. Well done, Katie! You are an excellent representative for us kitties!

    Uh, you too, Waffles.

  12. We just love Dayna and featured her on Dakota's blog a while back. She does such amazing work. You did a super job on all of her stuff!!! We are thrilled that she won!

  13. How cool. We wouldn't mind meeting that firefighter
    Benny & Lily

  14. No wonder...y'all are always hot stuff!

  15. Well it is nice that you are safety cats, but hanging around dogs....I don't know....

  16. Katie and Waffles Two are the cutest safety kitties we've ever seen!

  17. Do you have to slide down one of those fire poles? Grandpa was a fireman.

  18. Congratulations to Molly! We have to say that Katie and Waffles Too make cute honorary safety cats. :)

  19. ConCATulations to Molly !
    That´s really cool that you two are honorary safety cats !!
