The Beverly Hill-Kitties - TV Spoof

♩♫
Come and listen to a story 'bout an orange striped cat.
Waffles was his name, but the Boss - she called him Brat.

Hungry day & night, always stealing all her food,
Then up on the counter, he grabbed and he chewed.

Chicken, that is.
Fried gold.
Texas turkey.



♩♫♩♫♩♫♩♫♩♫♩♫♩♫♩♫



Return to Our Movie & TV Spoofs
Some of our most favorite TV spoofs are all about the theme song. Of course, finding words that rhyme with Waffles and orange is never easy! When it comes to living with Waffles, Katie would say that's never easy either.

The Beverly Hillbillies was a little before Glogirly's time, but thanks to reruns, she's seen ALL the episodes. And thanks to this blog post, she's got that banjo music stuck in her head. 

And we bet you do too!

Waffles Big Countdown

WAFFLES:  How many days 'til Gloman? Glogirly says it's getting close so I better start counting.


WAFFLES:  Katie says it's getting close so I better start behaving. 


We're ALL Counting Down
So that Gloman can spend extra time with us over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, we skipped our monthly visit in October. He arrives late Monday evening and we can't wait. We've all been missing him SOOOO much. Glogirly talks with him every day, but it's just not the same as being able to look into his twinkling eyes.

Katie would agree. The love she has for her Cat Daddy is like no other. And Waffles, well he's got some serious man to mancat time to make up for.

So tick tock, already... is it Monday yet???

Waffles & the Stud Finder

We're having trouble leaving comments today, so we're posting something we published previously to see if the comments will work. ...this is one of our Waffles faves.
WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Glogirly's stud finder really works. Look! She's pointing it at me and it's beeping like crazy! 


KATIE:  Clearly this thing is defective if it thinks you're a stud, Waffles. It's supposed to find studs in the wall


WAFFLES:  You mean we there are other handsome mancats in our wall???



WAFFLES:  I don't have to share my breakfast with them, do I?


About Today's Photos
Gloman is back in the mountains with us to celebrate his and Glogirly's 15th wedding anniversary later this week. (YAY!) He drove this time and arrived at about 2:00am on Saturday. 

And he arrived with a very special gift. 

Our new home has some pretty incredible walls for showcasing his photography. The main entry has been patiently waiting for the perfect photo and that's exactly what Gloman had hidden in the back of his SUV. They spent most of yesterday afternoon finding studs in the wall to support the weight of it, measuring, centering, leveling and then doing it all again when Glogirly realized her measuring and math was WAY off. But it's up now and looking fabulous! Even Waffles approves.

Glogirly is absolutely in love with it and he's pretty proud of it too. He shot it in Antelope Canyon on a trip they took together six years ago. Antelope Canyon is in Page, Arizona and is famous for its beautiful "slot" canyons located on private Navajo land. The photo is particularly special because Glogirly was right by Gloman's side when he captured it, holding his tripod and extra camera. They had a guide bring them (and about 30+ other people) into the small canyon at exactly noon, when the light shines perfectly overhead through the "slots". That is what's creating the gorgeous beam of light. 

The inside of the canyon is surprisingly small. In fact, some of the passageways are so narrow that only one person can fit through it at a time.  

What you can't see in the photo are those 30+ other people standing shoulder to shoulder while the guide is making sure none of them are in Gloman's shot.

When she closes her eyes, Glogirly can still feel the cold sandstone walls on her fingertips and the warmth of the sunbeams on her back. It's every bit as magical as it appears in the photo. 
This is just one of the reasons Gloman loves photography so much. His images are like living memories of special places and experiences with the people he loves. 

(Perhaps that's also why he takes so many photos of Katie and Waffles!)


Testing 123

We're having some problems with comments on our blog today. So we're publishing a quickie test post to see if we're able to leave a comment.


Deer Waffles 2

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! The funny looking neighbors are back!


KATIE:  Deer, Waffles. Those are–


WAFFLES:  Did you just say Dear Waffles? You're not breaking up with me, are you Boss?


KATIE:  No, Waffles. That's a Dear John letter. 

WAFFLES:  John? Who's John? Is John the funny looking neighbor? The one with horns?


DEER:  DEER, Waffles. We're DEER. And my name is NOT John. That's a tractor.


WAFFLES:  Wow, this is confusing. 


YOUNG DEER: You're telling me!


Return of the Munchy Neighbors
We've still got a sprinkle of snow on the ground here. The white stuff always seems to bring our little deer family out in search of something to nibble on. They love all of our tall grass and the leaves from the aspen trees that line our driveway.

This year there's group of six deer, including a very adorable youngster with eyes like Bambi. They're very suspicious of Glogirly and don't let her get close at all. Today's deer photos were shot with a long lens and then cropped in tight, so the deer look much closer than they actually were.

They weren't nearly as close as the three bears!

We're Off to See the Wizard Cat

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss? Are we off to see the wizard guy?

KATIE:  Only if you can follow the yellow brick road.

WAFFLES:  I don't know where that is. Should we stop and ask for directions?

KATIE:  What kind of mancat are you? Can't you just google-map it?

WAFFLES:  Can't you just click your heels?

KATIE:  Waffles, that only works in the movies.  Better check for road construction and flying monkey delays while you're at it, or we'll never get there.



Weeeeeeeeee're... 
off to see the wizard,
the Wonderful Wizard of CATS.

We hear he is a wiz of a cat, 
if ever a wiz there was.

If ever, oh ever a wiz there was, 
the Wizard of Cats is one because,

Because, because, because, because, BECAUSE!!!!


Because of the–




WAFFLES:  Uh... because of what?


Return to Our Movie & TV Spoofs
You know how when you open up Facebook each day and a memory pops up from that same day one, two, three etc, years ago? Well this morning our Wizard of Oz movie spoof popped up and we got to thinking how much fun we had creating these posts and graphics. When we checked it out on our blog, we saw that we'd published EIGHTY tv and movie spoofs over the years!

So we thought it would be fun to bring some of them back. Especially since Waffles plays such a great Cowardly Lion. We know you probably think that given his wild and crazy personality, Waffles would be a very brave lion. Truth be told, Katie is far more courageous than Waffles. Waffles talks a big talk, but he's often the first to scamper under the bed or behind the green curtain.

We hope you enjoyed today's spoof. We'll bring more back, often with new dialogue and new songs.

We're FELIWAY® Ready for Holiday Houseguests With a Purrfect Giveaway

This giveaway is sponsored by FELIWAY®
WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, we've got a fresh one of those houseguest plug-in thingies. You know what that means...........SANTA!


KATIE:  Whoa, whoa, whoa, Waffles. Slow down. It's not even Thanksgiving yet. Just because Glogirly is a little quick with the holiday decor doesn't mean you can start talking Santa. 

And I'm pretty sure that's not called a Houseguest Plug-In Thingy


WAFFLES:  Yeah, well I can't read upside down. What does it say?

KATIE:  You can't read right side up either, Waffles. It's a FELIWAY® MultiCat Diffuser Plug-In.

WAFFLES:  MULTI cat???


KATIE:  Yes, MultiCat. Like you and me. And it works for multi houseguests too. 


WAFFLES:  Will it make them keep their mitts off our Christmas stockings? 


KATIE:  I would think you'd want our guests to touch your stocking, Waffles. You know, to slip in some toys and treats before Santa fills it up with coal?

And no, FELIWAY® isn't about keeping people away from your stocking. It's about maintaining a sense of calm and familiarity during the influx of holiday visitors. In fact, it works on maintaining a sense of calm between just you and me, holiday or no holiday. 


WAFFLES:  You mean like when you meow, "Serenity Now?"


Holiday-Ready 
Now that Halloween is in our rearview mirror, Glogirly is already untangling holiday lights and sorting ornaments. Usually, we wait until Thanksgiving weekend, but she wants to be ready for guests early. Ok, truth be told, she's just super excited for Christmas this year and has a thing for twinkle lights. And when you have a red kitchen, well it's the holiday spirit is there all year long.

Getting ready for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hannukah means getting ready for guests too. And a big part of that for us is FELIWAY®.


How Does FELIWAY® Work?
You've seen your cats rub up against a piece of furniture with their mouths, right? That means they're comfortable in their environment and when they rub their cheeks like that it leaves behind a facial pheromone. It's their way of marking that particular area as safe and secure. FELIWAY® mimics this natural feline facial pheromone and helps to create that same sense of familiarity.

We've found it incredibly effective when people come to the house to stay overnight or even when we have a handyman or painter here for just an hour or two. 

FELIWAY® MultiCat can also maintain peace and harmony in households with more than one cat by decreasing the intensity and frequency of that all too familiar tension between cats. 

FELIWAY® isn't a drug. It's non-sedating, non-systemic, and has no known contraindications with any other treatment. In fact, there's a very good chance your own vet is already using it in their clinic and exam rooms.


How to Properly Use the Diffuser Plug-In
  • Plug into an outlet in the room where the cats spend the most of their time. We like to position a second in our guest room as well. 
  • We've found it takes about 24 hours to kick in. 
  • Leave plugged in continuously. 
  • One vial will last approximately 30 days. The diffuser should be replaced about every 6 months. 

Additional Uses
Traveling
Bring a diffuser with on road trips to use in hotel rooms or wherever you're staying. FELIWAY® also makes a spray that is very effective in the car.

Going to the Vet
There's a good chance you'll see FELIWAY® diffusers plugged in the next time you visit the vet. 

Holiday Decorating
Position a diffuser in the same room as your holiday decor. Much like bringing in a new sofa or rug can bring a whole new set of smells into your home, so to can those holiday decorations you've had stashed in the garage all year.


It's a GIVEAWAY!
So you can be prepared for the holidays too...two lucky GLOGIRLY readers will each win a FELIWAY® MultiCat Diffuser Plug-In 30 Day Starter Kit!

Time Traveler Cat

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! I'm going back to the future. Do you want to come?


KATIE:  Back to the future? You can't go back to something that's in the future. That's an oxymoron, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  Boss! That's not very nice. I'm not a oxymoron! I'm a smart–

KATIE:  No, Waffles. Oxymoron is a grammatical term. It's– nevermind. So why do you want to go back to the future?


WAFFLES:  To save the daylight, Boss! 


KATIE:  This wouldn't have anything to do with daylight savings, would it?




WAFFLES:  That's what I said! We have to save the daylight! SAVE THE DAYLIGHT, SAVE THE WORLD!


KATIE:  Waffles really takes this daylight savings stuff seriously.


Tick Tock!
If you forgot to set your clocks back over the weekend, you've probably been running an hour late since Sunday. Katie and Waffles were thrilled that the morning and evening meal service seems to be a little on the early side. Falling back is always easier than springing forward. Except for the fact that it's so dark, dinnertime feels like bedtime.


About Today's Photos & Painting of Waffles


A couple of summers ago we featured Splendid Beast custom pet portraits on our blog. We have three hanging in our home love them SO much. Photos just don't do them justice...the attention to detail is exquisite. They make Glogirly smile every single day.

Here's our original post about them with some great photos of the other portraits they made for us.

Laundry Radar

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, want to go undercover?


KATIE:  What. With you?


WAFFLES:  C'mon, Boss. It's laundry day. It'll be fun. 


KATIE:  Fun? You've got a crazy, mixed up idea of fun, Waffles. 


WAFFLES:  But I like crazy, mixed up fun.


Laundry Day!
There's nothing quite like warm, clean sheets to bring Katie and Waffles together. They could be on opposite sides of the house, deep into a long afternoon nap. Once they hear the snap of the clean sheets, they come running. It's like they have laundry-radar.

Do your kitties have laundry-radar?
