MEET US


Meet Glogirly
Glogirly is the girl behind the blog. She and her tuxedo-kitty-turned-partner-in-crime *Katie* started their blogging affair on a whim back in 2009. 

You might say Katie, the sharp-tongued of the two, is Glogirly's alter ego. But Katie's quick to assert that her ego is perfectly fine the way it is and needs no alteration. "Get your own, Glogirly."

Despite Glogirly's inherent humanistic flaws, she's proven to be quite useful to Katie's blogging empire. An accomplished graphic designer and marketer, Glogirly's work has become instantly recognized for her whimsical and often hilarious imagery... Gorgeous original photography sprinkled with a little Photoshop and pixie dust. The result is a perfect side dish to Katie's dry wit.

Glogirly's graphics aren't limited to her own blog. GLOGIRLY DESIGN specializes in logo design,  headers, social media profiles, blog makeovers, biz cards and media kits. And it's not all about cats. She's has a number of clients who are real dogs too. Goats, rabbits... she even works with people. She says that the right design can help define a blogger's voice, their blog's personality and visual brand. That's just fancy marketing-speak for she can make you look AMAZING.



Meet Katie
Katie is the primary voice behind the blog. With a sarcastic and dry wit, she's got something so say about everything. ...and everyone. She shares accounts of her life from a point of view that seems to be half cat and half human. 

Katie is a shelter kitty, adopted by Gloman and given to Glogirly on their wedding anniversary. Despite Katie's reputation for avoiding most public displays of affection, she holds a special place in her little kitty heart for Gloman, the one who chose her and gave her a real home.

Katie's career as a blogging cat has been rewarding with a stack of AWARDS she hasn't enough paws or toes to count. Through contests and competitions she's raised thousands of dollars in food, supplies and cash for lots of homeless kitties. Even Katie has a soft side.



...and then came Waffles
The youngest member of GLOGIRLY.com is a maniac tabby with a severe case of the zoomies. His goofy personality and antics keep Katie on her toes.

Like Katie, Waffles has something to say about EVERYTHING. Whether he knows what he's talking about or not. And usually, it's not.

His blogging voice is simple and his vocabulary limited. He calls Katie the *Boss* and often mixes up his words and their meanings. You could call him the master of malapropisms. Though he has NO idea what that means.

Waffles has a chicken obsession that weaves it's way into much of what he blogs about. In fact, when he grows up he wants to become a chicken rancher.


So how did Waffles come come to live at the Townhouse? 
Well it's kind of a crazy story...

In 2012 BW (Before Waffles), Katie and 5 other blogging cats were invited to participate in a unique fundraising competition, the Cat Ruler Of The World - Campaign For A Cause Contest. The shelter organization we chose to support in the contest was Blind Cat Rescue and there was a BIG prize at stake for these amazing kitties. Katie brought on a campaign intern to help with the day-to-day blog posts and campaign awareness. Enter Waffles ... a stock photograph of an orange kitten that became an overnight sensation. A dear blogging friend, Cathy Keisha, suggested we name this new campaign addition "Waffles." Both for his orange color and as an homage on the old campaign quip, "Waffling on the issues." Readers were in love, Facebook Fans too. And so was Glogirly. So much so, that she knew she needed to put the stock photo to rest and adopt a REAL Waffles.

In November of 2012, Glogirly went to Petfinder.com entered her zip code, and in about 30 seconds found a little orange kitten with a sparkle in his eye. Waffles was adopted from the Animal Humane Society in Buffalo, Minnesota.

It's been a little over two years now and he's one of the most popular characters of the blog. He's a flirt, a silly romantic who's won the hearts of ALL his *ladies.* 


Meet Gloman
If it weren't for Gloman... Glogirly, Katie, the blog and even Waffles Too may never have happened. Gloman was just Gloman until he opened his front door one day to find himself staring at a cute girl. It was a chance meeting. Still, Gloman joked to his friends, just hours later, that one day he'd marry that girl. Five years later, Gloman proposed to his girl at that same doorway and they were married soon after.

A self-professed DOG-person, Gloman always joked with Glogirly about cats. Then one day, on their 3rd wedding anniversary, Gloman came home with a very special gift for his girl. The little black and white kitten darted around the townhouse with a pink ribbon for a collar and a tiny little tag that read, Happy Anniversary, I love you."

Now THAT'S true love. Glogirly named her kitten Katie, and that's where it all began. When Glogirly decided she was going to start a blog, she wasn't sure where to begin or what to write. Gloman suggested, "Why don't you have Katie introduce you?" Well it stuck. Glogirly has been writing in the voice of Katie ever since.

Gloman is an extremely skilled and talented photographer and has taught Glogirly everything she knows about capturing great images. He's the CatDaddy of CatDaddies and has a very special relationship with both Katie and Waffles. His gentle and giving heart make their house a home. A forever home. 




Another Mother
Glogirly, Katie and Waffles Too share something very special in common... besides living on the pink pages of GLOGIRLY. They were all adopted. Another Mother is the story of Glogirly's search for her birthmother and family. Katie checks her sarcasm at the door as she narrates this amazing journey.

We invite you to share in her journey.
You'll find yourself on the edge of your seat, reaching for the Kleenex.

  6. I am so happy to read this new page! Even though I feel like I know everyone, it is all put together in a way that makes me feel even closer to the gang. And what a terrific story about How Gloman and Glogirly Met. I knew that Katie was the anniversary gift, but the part about how there ever was an anniversary was missing!

    The Squeedunk Cats love the Tails of 2 Cats, their Girl, Gloman and the townhouse!
    We can't wait for more!

  7. I really love what you have done to your blog as it gives the story of your lives simply but wonderfully. I wish I was this creative. My blog, as far behind as it is, is so simple and when I went back to work on it, found that so much has changed. I have a lot of learning to do and need to find time to work on my blog once again.
