Garage Sale

KATIE:  Way to hog the lounger, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  What? Did you want to sit here?

KATIE:  Oh, no... by all means go ahead. I love laying down here on the rug watching you enjoy the stylish comfort of MY lounger.

WAFFLES:  How do you know it's YOUR lounger? I don't see your name on it.

KATIE:  Does EVERYTHING that's mine need a NAME TAG?

WAFFLES:  Well, that would make things easier.

KATIE:  Yeah, well considering the Townhouse is mine, that would make everything inside mine too. Seems to me name tags would be a bit redundant.

WAFFLES:  Wait!  So if EVERYTHING inside the Townhouse is yours, does that mean I'M yours too???



KATIE:  Good point, Waffles. Things are getting a little cluttered in here. Maybe it's time for a garage sale.  



WAFFLES:  Phew! I'm sure glad I'm not the garage. For a minute there I thought the Boss was going to sell ME.

TV Trip: Little Cats on the Prairie





WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, nice bonnet.

KATIE:  Yeah, well look who's wearing braids and playing with dolls.

WAFFLES:  Uh, Boss? I have to go.

KATIE:  Go where? To the general store to pick up another outfit for that doll of yours?

WAFFLES:  NO, Boss. I have to GO.

KATIE:  What, didn't you go before we left 2014?

WAFFLES:  Bo-ss!

KATIE:  I hate to tell you Waffles, but it's 1874 and there's no indoor litter boxes.




WAFFLES:  Uh, I think I'll just hold it.

Lucky Cats

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! What are you looking at?



KATIE:  I'm not really looking. I'm just thinking.

WAFFLES:  What are you thinking about? Chicken?

KATIE:  No, Waffles. There's more to life than just chicken, you know.

WAFFLES:  Turkey? Tuna? 

KATIE:  NO, Waffles. We're just very lucky. 

WAFFLES:  You've GOT to be talking about chicken!

KATIE:  We're the lucky cats, Waffles. Somehow, we were chosen. With me it was Gloman. And with you it was Glogirly. They chose us. They didn't even know us, but they loved us from the very first moment they saw us. We're the lucky cats, Waffles. We have a safe home where there's always breakfast and dinner and treats and toys. We have a family. 



WAFFLES:  Doesn't everycat have that?

KATIE:  No Waffles. Not even close.

WAFFLES:  What can we do? We're just a couple of cats. Pretty small cats. How can we ever do anything big enough to help all those cats?

KATIE:  Well, small is ok. Because lots of smalls can make something BIG.



A Commentathon in Memory of Sparkle
Please visit Sparklecat.com today to honor our friend and
help turn a bunch of smalls into something really BIG.

Sparkle's Commentathon starts at 12:01 am, Pacific Standard Time

A Crazy for Cat Lady Ceramics GIVEAWAY!








WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Nice dish.

KATIE:  Waffles, get your head out of my dish. Now.

WAFFLES:  The dish says 'Eat' ... I'm just doing what the dish says.

KATIE:  Waffles, get your OWN dish. 



WAFFLES:  Ok, Boss. I got your own.



KATIE:  Waffles, we got a whole SET of dishes and mugs made especially for us from Crazy Cat Lady Ceramics. In fact, they're personalized with our own photos and quotes. Seriously, it should be pretty clear what's mine and what's yours. 



WAFFLES:  Yeah but everything always tastes better out of YOUR dish. 



Introducing Crazy Cat Lady Ceramics 
... and the Ceramic Cat Ladies 
Chris Hudson and Shelly Kutsa Hail are the cat lovers and artisans behind this adorable line of personalized ceramics. Each piece is handmade using a combination of 1000 years of ceramic tradition combined with modern imaging technology. Chris, who has a Masters Degree from the Royal Academy of Art in London, has been an active member of the ceramics world for over 15 years. Her work has been exhibited all over the world. Shelly is her right hand and handles the details and embellishments. She's a front line animal advocate, the staff photographer and chief kitty kisser.

How Does it Work?
It's so easy and fun. Just choose from a variety of ceramic pieces including mugs, bowls and plates for humans, as well as purrfectly sized cat food dishes. Then upload your favorite photos & quotes.  Chris and Shelly take care of the rest.

We decided to have fun with our quotes, but these pieces also would make wonderful memorials, honoring kitties that are no longer with us. The area where you see the quote can be customized however you wish.

Love!
We truly love our Crazy Cat Lady Ceramics. Each piece is a wonderful combination of handmade charm and modern whimsy. In particular, we LOVE being able to come up with our own quotes for each piece. Is it any surprise that Waffles insisted on a chicken theme??? Glogirly's practical side is oh-so-appreciative that everything is made from stone wear and is microwave AND dishwasher safe.






Advocates for Homeless Cats
Chris and Shelly are passionate about helping our feline friends in shelters. From the moment they started their unique company they knew they wanted to do something special. 10% of their profits are donated to the Humane Society of Chittenden County in Vermont. Women and artists in small businesses with a true love for animals... well, it just doesn't get any better than that.



OMC!  It's a GIVEAWAY!
TWO lucky GLOGIRLY winners will receive a pair of personalized mugs with their own pet photos and quotes.  Currently they are only able to ship domestically here in the US, however everyone is invited to enter. Winners residing outside the US may gift or donate their prize to a friend or shelter.

But Wait! You Say You Can't Wait???
Receive 10% off your Crazy Cat Lady Ceramics order now through September 28, 2014. Just use promo code: waffles.   (... why oh why is it always Waffles who gets the promo code names???)



We received our beautiful dishes and mugs at no charge from Crazy Cat Lady Cermaics. We also received a fee to cover the time it takes to take photos, create the blog post and administer the giveaway. Receiving the free product and the fee did not influence our article or anything we say.  All sponsored posts on GLOGIRLY will always reflect our honest opinions.

Waffles Wednesday: It's the #IceBucketChallenge – CAT EDITION!

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! It's Waffles Wednesday. What are YOU doing here?

KATIE:  I just came to find out if it's really true.

WAFFLES:  Whaddya mean?

KATIE:  I mean are you REALLY going to do the #IceBucketChallenge?

WAFFLES:  Yeah! I think it will be really COOL!

KATIE:  It'll be cool alright.


WAFFLES:  Do YOU want to do it, Boss?

KATIE:  Uh, yeah... NO.


Watch Waffles #IceBucketChallenge video below, or click HERE to watch on YouTube.


Our Challenger
Hazel McFluffyPants, a feline friend from Facebook, called upon us to take the #IceBucketChallenge. We were thrilled to comply. Though I think Waffles was hoping for more of an ice HOCKEY challenge. And before our ice even melted, we made a donation in Waffles' name to ALS. So far, the #IceBucketChallenge has raised over $88 million dollars and the number keeps climbing. We think that's pretty COOL. Ice-cold-COOL!


SO... Who's Next???
We want to invite any and all of our friends - feline, canine, human and otherwise -  to join us in taking the #IceBucketChallenge. But to make it REALLY INTERESTING, we're calling upon the cats and goats of a certain Montana ranch... Ok, Pricilla! Ok, Luke! Ok, Harry and Sherpa! Game ON!




What's ALS?
ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to death.

WAFFLES:  I'm THINKING. About what we talked about yesterday. You know... school and astronauts and chicken ranchers and stuff.

KATIE:  Waffles, you look like you're thinking WAY too hard. You don't need to use the litter box, do you?



WAFFLES:  Glogirly says my future is so bright I'm gonna need shades. 



KATIE:  Waffles, you're going to need way more than shades.



WAFFLES:  Superstar!!!!!!

Back-to-School with Waffles & His Kitty Lounger

KATIE:  Waffles, what on earth are you doing?

WAFFLES:  I'm getting ready for back-to-school.

KATIE:  Waffles, don't you have to have GONE to school in order to go BACK to it?

WAFFLES:  But I want to get all smart and stuff so I need to go back-to-school.

KATIE:  So what are you planning on studying?



WAFFLES:  I want to be an astronaut. 

KATIE:  Waffles, it takes a LONG time to become an astronaut. You have to be really good at science and math –



WAFFLES:  Cool!  I'm REALLY good at counting. See?  

KATIE:  Maybe you should manage your expectations. How about something a little easier? 



WAFFLES:  Coloring? I'm really good at playing with Glogirly's colored pencils and stuff. 

KATIE:  Thumbs, Waffles. Thumbs.



WAFFLES:  Wow, this back-to-school stuff is hard ...WAIT! I can be a CHICKEN rancher!

KATIE:  Waffles, you know you'd just eat all your profits.  

WAFFLES:  Is that wrong?




Back-to-School Kitty Lounger SALE!

DJ Waffles & International Strange Music Day


DJ WAFFLES:  Hey Boss!  Guess what day it is???

KATIE:  ...oh, I don't know. Maybe International Strange Music Day?

DJ WAFFLES:  How did you KNOW???



KATIE:  Just a wild guess.


Thank you to our friend, Miss Laura, from SQUEEDUNK CATS. Yesterday while she was sipping on her morning coffee in Jersey City, she snapped a photo of this flyer. Not real sure which is scarier... DJ Waffles or DJ Waffles spinning for disco lessons. 



International Strange Music Day...
...was created by Patrick Grant, a New York City musician. The premise is simple: to get people to play and listen to types of music they have never experienced before. The ‘strange’ part can mean either unfamiliar or bizarre. Patrick believes broadening people’s musical spectrums can also change the way we look at other aspects of life – his mantra is ‘listening without prejudice’. This growing movement has concerts, a record label and strong support from summer schools, where it is appreciated as a great way to stimulate young minds.  

...not that Waffles' mind needs any additional stimulation.
