While The Girl's Away

Hi everyone, Katie here.

While Glogirly is away, you-know-who is going to play! Thanks to my Secret Paws (Tiger Lily, Zeke & Sushi) and thanks to Santa the big guy himself, I've got lots of cool new toys to play with.

I thought it would be fun to take a little time out from my staycation to talk with you, my extra special blogging friends. So many of you left very touching comments on my Merry Merry Christmas blog about Gabe the Marine. I thought you might like to get to know him a little better. When I first started out my blog I did a little feature on him that I think you might enjoy.

Just click HERE to take a peek!

Pee. S. Gabe has been promoted since my blog feature on him from Private First Class (PFC) to Lance Corporal. That's LCpl Gabe to those of you in the know. He is also an "Expert" marksman. Best to stay out of his way I guess.

Semper Fidelis


  1. Katie, thanks for telling us about Gabe. We can see why Glogirly and Gloman are so proud of him!

    And give Gabe a big headbutt from us, okay? Being a Marine and defending our country is a pretty cool thing...

  2. He looks very brave! I want to tell him Thank You for helping to keep us all safe.

  3. Wow Katie thanks for sharing about the human in the uniform. He's cool. I don't think mom will let us play with guns. Have fun while your lady is away

  4. I can see why you are proud of Gabe...such a strong and dedicated Marine with a soft spot for kitties. Makes me wanna purr real loud.

  5. Way to go on the promotion, Gabe! We will keep Gabe in our purrayers as he keeps our country safe!

  6. Congrats to Gabe
    with his promotion ....
    You must be very proud :-)

    Happy Holidays

  7. Thanks for sharing about Gabe, Katie. Please give him hearty congrats for his promotion. Also, please let him know that we are thankful for his service and courage. We will remember to pray for his safety.

    I hope you have fun while they're all away.


  8. Congrats to Gabe. We can see why you are all so proud of him.

  9. Congratulations to Gabe. Have a good time while mommy's away.

  10. We are behind so we had to go back and read your Merry Christmas blog first, then the one about Gabe next - we loved it and then we saw that Gabe had been promoted - very very cool! Be sure to tell him how much we appreciate him and his work protecting our country and all of us in it! We are sending him some extra purrs of thanks!!

  11. Gabe is awesome. Our Grandfather was a Marine, so we know how proud you must be of Gabe, because we were sure proud of our Grandfather.

    We hope Gabe stays safe throughout his time in the Marine Corps and nothing but good things come to him.

    We look forward to hearing about Glogirly and Gloman's ski trip, but mostly we want to know if you spent some time with Glogirly's Jimmy Choo's while she was away?

  12. Thanks for sharing! We're glad to know we haz good hoomins on our side.

  13. We think we can see who taught him that tough guy look.

  14. Well done Gabe! It must be because he spends time with cats. That is the mark of success in any person.

  15. We are all so honored to have Gabe taking care of us.

  16. Wow! Gabe looks like he could be a model for Marine recruitment posters. Is he?
    Our family prays every day for America's men and women in uniform. It is the very least we can do for those who put themselves in harms way to keep us safe.

  17. We are very proud to count Gabe as one of our friends now too! Thanks Gabe for all you do & thanks Katie for sharing him with all of us!!!

  18. Thanks Katie for sharing about Gabe and we can see you had a great Christmas too.

    Big hugs,


  19. We bet you must be so proud of him! Give him our thanks for keeping us safe!

  20. You are simply a glorious looking kitty! And I enjoyed your feature of Gabe..thank you for it. No wonder Santa Claws brought you such good stuff for your stocking.
    Love and purrs, sweet girl.

  21. Thanks for sharing the story about your marine. I bet he deserves a skiing holiday after all that running around.

    Hope you all get some snuggle time soon, and leave some furs on all his stuff.

  22. Wow! Thanks for sharing the info on Gabe - it takes a special kind of person to be a Marine! Please tell him thanks for defending our country & keeping us all safe!

    A very Happy New Year to you, Katie (& Glogirly, Gloman & Gabe!!) We are so very happy to have met you & look forward to reading your blog for many years to come - wishing you the very best for 2010!!

    Nico, Austin & JayJay :)

    ps. enjoy your alone time!
