Kitten Meets Cat - the Mother of All Flashbacks

WAFFLES:  So Boss, what's up with the Throwback Thursday pictures? It's Monday you know.

KATIE:  Believe it or not Waffles, people are asking to see more of your kitten photos. Since we're only publishing on M-W-F, we have to get a little creative.



WAFFLES:  So does that mean today's Thursday? What happens when we get to Thursday? Will it be Monday? What about Friday? And Waffles Wednesday???

KATIE:  Relax, Waffles. We're just sharing the photos of the day you and I met face to face for the first time. Remember?



WAFFLES:  I remember! That's when you taught me how to say hello. 

KATIE:  And for once, you were a quick learner.



WAFFLES:  And then you taught me about wand toys.

KATIE:  Wand toy negotiation, Waffles. What's mine is mine and–



WAFFLES:  –and what's yours is mine. I remember!

KATIE:  *sigh* Isn't that the truth.



About Today's Photos
Almost three years ago, Waffles came home from the shelter to join our family. It was rough going at first. Glogirly set up our guest bedroom as a kitten quarantine room where he stayed for the first week. After a few days of Waffles and Katie peering at each other through a crack in the door, exploring each others digs in private, and lots of "oh, please let this work" prayers from Glogirly, the door opened. Permanently. 

Life has never been the same since.

  2. MOL - Katie, I see that your whapping paw was at the ready! The first time Binga waved her whapping paw at me, I rolled over on my back - that really confused her!

  4. Squeeeeeeee!! Did you ever post pics of Katie as a baby and as an adult side by side and of Waffles too? I'd love to see them baby and adult side by side to see how they've grown. They are just so cute!! My orange Jack was in awe when we brought baby Benjamin home. It was love at first sight! It was the most adorable first meeting. He wanted to be beside him all the time.
