The Day After

Hi everyone, Katie here.

What's wrong with this picture?  I'll tell you what's wrong with this picture. What's wrong is that empty plate sitting in front of me. What's wrong is I've been left out of yet ANOTHER so-called birthday celebration.

As you know, yesterday was Glogirly's birthday. And I KNOW you know because everyone and their DOG left a comment wishing her a happy day. So, what am I? Chopped liver?  Glogirly's birthday yesterday gleaned more comments in a single day than any other day in the whole history of my blog! And what about me?

An empty plate.

Gloman took Glogirly out to their favorite restaurant last night to celebrate getting older. Ok wait a minute. What's wrong with THAT picture?  You mean to tell me you humans actually CELEBRATE getting older? All the while COMPLAINING about getting older? There are some things I will never understand.

So back to the restaurant. I know for a fact they dined lavishly on beef tenderloin and salmon. I hear chocolate cake was involved as well, but let's get back to that salmon. No doggy bag. No kitty bag. No foil swans. Nothing.

I'm sitting vigil, glaring at watching my empty plate. The guilt should set in sometime soon.

Despite my still empty plate, I'm sharing what appears to be an overly sappy note that Glogirly begged me to post. But I'm a giver. So here you go:

Just another annoying friendly reminder...

  1. OMC! I missed the Birfday!! My Human has been so neglectful :-( She needs to be punished.

    I am thrilled Glogirly hadded a wonderful birthday and a special fancy dinner and efurrything, BUT I really must protest the lack of consideration for The Cat, who after all is the raison d'etre for this whole blog! I mean, without Katie, wouldn't this just be pretty much an empty page with dates?

    So why no salmon??

    Still, Happy Birfday Glogirly! We luffs you!

  2. *Sneaks Katie a catnip mousie to play with and take clawed frustration out on*

    See, humans, once they hit 25 start celebrating birthdays the same way they celebrate deaths .. with lots of alcohol, stories of memories past and opportunities lost..

    Or maybe that's just the way the Irish half of my family does it.. *ponders a moment*

    Either way, we all know you're the important one, Katie! Glogirly deserves a special day a year.. but yeah, no kidding, she could have at least brought you back a sniff of salmon!

  3. I am glad that Glorgirly had such a wonderful birthday, but not bringing you back some salmon is inexcusable. You even reminded her yesterday.


  4. Maybe humans are not actually celebrating getting older, Katie. Maybe they have to go out and have a fancy expensive meal to help them not feel so bad about it! Hence it was necessary to consume all the salmon just to feel a little better. That's it. There's something odd about salmon at restaurants too. It always seems to get eaten completely and never seems to be part of any "leftovers" brought home.

    Better luck next time!

  5. Dearest Glowgirly,

  6. Hi Katie,Speedy here,you know mum has a tin of tuna pop into your closet and think of me and you'll soon be here for a tuna fish lunch

  7. Geez, Katie, you been done wrong! Especially the part about no kitty bag from the restaurant. I would not be so free with letting Glogirly have her own blog posts in the future. She needs a remedial lesson in kitty protocol.

  8. Poke her in the eye while she sleeps!! That's what I do... *evil laugh*

  9. We're glad Glogirly enjoyed the nice dinner but salmon for you? That is so very wrong!!

    The Florida Furkids and Lexi

  10. Utterly and completely unbelievable. Then again, perhaps she "forgot"...which is a pretty common sign one's getting older.

  11. With our heads in boxes and hands in pails, we missed a very special birthday and we're so SORRY!!!

    Hope Glogirly had an extra special one. Mom Julie usually celebrates a birthday week--this way, there are greetings for seven days and she gets spoiled for an entire week, hehe!!


  12. That's what I love about you, Katie. Selfless, giving, forgiving, even! It's not all about you, is it? .... Oh it is! Pardon me !!! But you really need to get that Glogirly back in her place. She's starting to develop personality ;) xox

  13. No kitty bag of salmon?? Katie, we're sure you'll come up with the appropriate revenge.

  14. Happy belated birthday to Glogirly! And Katie, you are not a chopped liver...she is better and happier because you are with her :-)
    But no kitty bag is not acceptable! A little revenge should be pland ;-)

  15. Heheheeh!
    Humans are very controversial, even!
    A kiss and a good weekend!

  16. Now that the party is over, it's time she fill up that plate!

  17. Hey Katie,

    I don't understand humans either?

    However, I think your tactics are spot on - Guilt!! How can Glogirly possibly ignore the fact that your plate is SO empty you can see your reflection - I'm sure she'll fill it up with Salmon any moment - hang in there buddy!! :)

    Big Wags to all,

    Your Doggie pal Snoopy :)

  18. Katie, you know I WARNED Glogirly early yesterday to make sure you got a kitty bag from the restaurant. This is simply deplorable! How can she disobey me so blatantly? She didn't think you'd tell me?? May the chocolate cake go right to her hips. HAH! That'll teach her. Oh, and glad her birthday was fun.

  19. Oh Katie! I am sure you will be amply rewarded for your erm, patience.

  20. Has the Salmon showed up yet? If not, please come out to Seattle and we will get some at Pike's Place Market. It's along way from here and you might wonder why I go there, but honestly, it's never easier to catch than when the guys are passing those big fishes to each other and we do an intercept.

  21. We missed the notice! Happy Birthday, Glogirly...and please feed Katie.

  22. Happy Belated Birthday, Glogirly! At our house this would be known as "The day AFTER Your Birthday", and calls for ADDITIONAL celebration! So give Katie some SALMON, you dirty rotten old crone! heh.

  23. We are on the phone with the authorities
    Benny & Lily

  24. What?
    Not even the tinfoil??
    You could have had tinfoil balls out of that at least something to play with.
    THIS is an outrage.
    Time to plot revenge Katie.
    (but we are glad Glogirl had a good birthday)


  25. We are glad Glogirly had a wonderful day, but we agree, she could have brought you back something.

  26. While we are happy Glogirly had so wonderful a birthday, we are stunned and aghast at your mistreatment! We are calling Protective Services right now. In the meantime, come over here. Oui Oui never eats all her food (if she decides to eat it at all), so there are plenty noms for everyone.

  27. Phew, it took two rabbits, but Katie got some salmon! (Not the salmon she deserved, of course!)

  28. Aw, poor Katie! You deserve some attention too! or at least some salmon! Hugs and purrs!

  29. I was wondering why you looked so thin!!!


Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
