Where's Katie? #TuxieTuesday

KATIE:  Is it Tuesday already? Last week when Waffles hijacked #TuxieTuesday... as if we all don't get enough of him already... my devout Katie fangirls (and fanboys) cried out in protest. 

"What happened to #Tuxie Tuesday?" 
"But where's KATIE???" 
"We want MORE Katie!"
"Katie, Katie, Katie!"




KATIE:  Music to my ears. And I'm not talking about that howling Waffles calls 'music.'  

So today, it's all about me. 

And my nip nanna. 



KATIE:  *sigh*  I thought this thing tasted a little OFF.  




About Today's Photos and Nanna
Today's photos bring back painful memories. They were taken last year, just shortly before the first day of spring. It was a Friday. No, a Saturday. March 15, 2014. The day the nip nanna died.

We received 'Nanna' that very day from the man in brown shorts. Well, it was cold so he probably wore pants. Glogirly opened the box and held up the beautifully fragrant and pristine nip nanna. So bright and yellow. She was magnificent. While Glogirly was getting her camera ready, Waffles got a hold of her. Nanna, that is.

What happened next was horrifying. Puncture wounds everywhere. Poor Nanna didn't stand a chance. Within 15 minutes, Nanna sprung a catastrophic leak. Katie tried to help, but it was too late.

Nanna was laid to rest in the kitchen garbage can. She was later moved to the garage, where her remains were safe from Waffles the scavengers.

RIP Nanna.

  1. Wow, Waffles is a little rough on those toys - it takes Binga and Boodie months to destroy those Yeowww! ones.

  6. Maybe Waffles' toofies are less sharp now than when he was young. Perhaps give another Nanna a try. They are the best!

  10. Aw, poor Katie! You should demand a new nana, one that Waffles isn't allowed to touch!

  13. We have a couple of dead Nannas around here - also a dead Yeooww fishie. Julio doesn't seem to care if they're dead or alive. He flings the dead ones around and chews them just as if they were alive. Julio is not fussy. At the moment, he is behind me, trying to slay a clothespin. Nothing fancy. No catnip. Just a clothespin. Hey, he's a cat.

  16. Inspired by today's post, I have just purchased a Nip Nana for our gang. They are usually pretty gentle with toys, so we'll see how long it lasts.

  17. I was going to say, those were some pretty impressive fang marks in that nanner..

  21. What a tragic nana incident. That's as bad as the brand new Nana that Newton got territorial about and peed on. Seeing a new nana have to leave so soon is a real heartbreaker.

  22. RIP Nanna. Katie, you have to admit it would be handy to have Waffles on your side in some sort of Intelligent Dog Uprising, for example. But he's a real menace when it comes to household items, like TP or your favorite toys. We LOVE Tuxie Tuesday!

  23. Yeah, mum owes me a new nip nanner or carrot. Lost there punch.

  24. That is the fastest death of a nip nanner we have ever heard about. We've deaded a couple, but it took us much longer. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  25. OMC I didn't know a nip nanner could be killed that easy!!! We have had ours for over a year and just nibble on them and rub them lovingly. Sorry Katie that you did not get to fully enjoy as you should have.
    Tuxies rule on Tuesdays!
