To Touch or Not to Touch #ThrowbackThursday

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! I'm KING OF THE WOR– uh, I mean I'm  KING OF THE WHITE CHAIR!

KATIE:  Looks more like you're king of those ginormous paws, Waffles.



WAFFLES:  All the better to touch you, Boss.

KATIE:  And, Waffles. What did I tell you about touching me?

WAFFLES:  Uh, I forget.

KATIE:  Seriously? Were we not  just having this conversation?



WAFFLES:  What conversation? 

KATIE:  The touching conversation?

WAFFLES:  Awww, Boss. That's really touching.



KATIE:  I got your touching. 


About Today's Photos 
Today's photos were taken on March 6, 2013. That would make Waffles barely 7 months old and Katie 7 years old. Waffles was becoming more and more serious about testing the limits with Katie. And Katie was only beginning to perfect her defensive skills.

To this day, Waffles LOVES to touch Katie. Every morning while their breakfast is being prepared, Waffles will sit really close to her, reach out with his giant paw and touch her chest, just below her chin. He does it in slow motion and often accompanies it with a long, drawn out meow.

About 50% of the time there's a smack down and the other 50% of the time there's a stare down.

And about 95% of the time, the win goes to Katie.

Still, Waffles is pretty proud of his 5%.

  1. Binga and I box before breakfast sometimes. I didn't want to at first, but I think she missed Sparkle doing it with her, so she kept at it til I responded!

  2. Sherpa loves to be near Harry but sometimes his intent is not so nice. What is it with orange cats and tuxie cats?

  6. And how does that gorgeous white leather chair stand up to the claws in those paws? Not implying that they would ever intentionally claw it, but just the claws out when jumping off, or running across it.

  8. Take your 5% when you can get it, Waffles. You aren't going to get one over on the boss very often!

  17. I think you both enjoy smacky paws really! I like your twisty scratcher. My mum got me some new treats that look like just it. They aren't that big though, more's the pity.
