Weekend-Ready with Cats & Watermelons

WAFFLES:  *uuuummmph* Man, this thing is heavy. How do those Harlem Globetrotter guys do it?

KATIE:  Waffles, what on earth are you doing???

WAFFLES:  This isn't regulation size, Boss. It's too big. I don't think I can shoot hoops with it.

KATIE: Shoot hoops??? Seriously? Waffles, it's a watermelon. Not a basketball. Oh,'re a CAT.

WAFFLES:  Wait! I've almost got it. Just have to dribble–

KATIE:  Waffles, the only thing you're capable of dribbling is food on your chin.

WAFFLES:  He shoots! He scores!

WAFFLES:  *AAAAAAAHHHH!* And the crowd goes WILD! 

WAFFLES:  Hey! Where'd the crowd go?

Watermelon is Officially In-Season
It's the big Memorial Day weekend here in the US. That means the watermelons are out in full force at the grocery store. Glogirly can't walk by the big green fruit without thinking about Waffles, the not-so-famous Harlem Globetrotter.

Today's pics are from Waffles' first watermelon encounter back when we lived at the Townhouse. Glogirly had just returned home from the market and her arms were so overloaded with grocery bags, she had to set the watermelon down on the floor before she could make it to the kitchen.

We'd heard that some cats like watermelon...but not quite like this.

Katie's Litter Box Shadow

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, are you done yet? 

KATIE:  A little privacy, please.

WAFFLES:  It's not like I've never seen you go before, Boss. 

KATIE:  I KNOW. Every time I go. There you are.  

WAFFLES:  No I'm not, Boss. I'm way over here. 

KATIE:  And three, two, one...

WAFFLES:  Do, do-do...

Like Katie's Shadow
Wherever Katie is, Waffles is close behind. Like a shadow, sometimes it seems he follows her every move. And the litter box is no exception. 

To date, he's never joined her while she's taking care of business, but sometimes he gets awfully close. Once Katie makes her exit, that's his cue. Whether he needs to go or not, he'll hop right in for the big dig. 

We're not sure if this is a territorial thing or just his usual curiosity. 

Do any of your cats do this? Katie wants to know.

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, what happened to all the sun puddles? 

KATIE:  They're hiding behind all the fog, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Why are they hiding, Boss? Are they scared to come out? 

Or maybe it's a game! You know, like hide n seek. Maybe WE should play hide n seek!

WAFFLES:  Ok, I'm ready, Boss. Come out, come out wherever you are! You're TOTALLY not going to find me!

KATIE: You're TOTALLY right, Waffles.

Fogged In
We spend the whole weekend completely fogged in. The fog brought some badly needed moisture with it though, so our garden and trees are very happy. It was perfect napping and TV viewing weather. We can neither confirm or deny that Glogirly binged on both. 

As much as we love the blue skies, sunshine, and mountain views, there's something really magical about the misty fog.  Here's a quick video of our misty view.
