WAFFLES: Uh, my name's Waffles? I'm almost 3 years-old?
KATIE: Do you have any hobbies, Waffles?
WAFFLES: Uh, hobbies? Um, working out. I work out. With wand toys and red dots and stuff.
KATIE: Waffles, it says here you want to be a rancher. Don't you mean dancer?
WAFFLES: Uh, yeah. I mean I need to earn money for chicken rancher school so I thought I could moonlight as a Chickendale dancer.
KATIE: Waffles, this is an audition for CHIPPENDALES, not CHICKENdales.
WAFFLES: But I was told there would be chicken. That I could dance for chicken and ladies would put money in my–
KATIE: Waffles, do you have any dancing experience?
WAFFLES: You mean with chickens?
CHIP: Yeah, he's been backstage for HOURS practicing. It's pretty embarrassing. Maybe if we give him some treats he'll just go away.
KATIE: I don't think so. I've got a history with this one. I think we should go ahead and let him do his audition. Just try to keep a straight face. Ok?
CHIP 'n' DALE: Got it.
KATIE: Ok, Waffles. Show us what you've got.
Everyone's watching, to see what you will do.
Everyone's looking, at you, ooo-ooo-ooh.
Everyone's wondering, how did you button those cuffs?
Everyone's looking AT ALL THAT FLUFF, all that fluff!
CHIP: Oh. My.
DALE: My EYES! My EYES!
KATIE: *shakes head*
About Today's Episode:
When we heard about Chip and Dale, the adoptable tuxedo brothers from PAWS, we couldn't help but giggle at their clever names. Growing up, Glogirly loved the Chip 'n' Dale cartoons. She still has a thing for chipmunks.
Fast forward to 1990... back when Saturday Night Live was must-see television. In October of that year Chris Farley and Patrick Swayze starred in what Glogirly thinks is the most hilarious comedy sketch EVER. If you've seen it, you know what we're talking about. If you haven't, you owe it to yourself to WATCH. If you live outside the US, click HERE to see the video.
TV Trip Saturdays with the Shelter Cats!
Every Saturday we're featuring adoptable cats from PAWS Pet Animal Welfare Society in Norwalk, CT. in our TV Trip blog series. Through the magic of Photoshop, they'll join Katie and Waffles for some time-travel adventures in our TV Trip blog series.
We'll also introduce you to the 'Cameo Cats' and share a little bit about them. Maybe, just maybe... our crazy antics will help our shelter friends find forever homes.
Special thanks to Maggie Swanson, the talented photographer behind our cameo cats and a devoted volunteer at PAWS. Maggie is the author of the blog, Sundays at the Shelter, where she features adoptable cats from PAWS each and every week. Her beautiful photos have helped countless cats find loving homes.
Chip 'n' Dale are looking for a forever home where they'll always be together. These handsome boys are available for adoption at PAWS, Pet Animal Welfare Society in Norwalk, Connecticut.

This is one of our favorite Caturday posts from 2015. We loved it so much we wanted to share it again. Since we originally posted it, Chip 'n' Dale have been adopted. But there are still many wonderful adult cats waiting at PAWS and shelters in your own neighborhoods for their forever homes. If you're ready to add a furry family member into your home, please consider adopting an adult cat.
