Making The Blogosphere A Snazzier Place

Hi everyone, Katie here.

Thanks for tuning in this week as Waffles and I trekked across the pond to rescue our friend AUSTIN from a blog design emergency.  If you've been sleeping all week, don't despair...we've DVR'd everything for you right here:
Click here for Design Scene - DO NOT CROSS - An Extreme Blog Makeover

Blogging is a beautiful thing. It makes a big and scary world a smaller, friendlier place. With a few tap-taps on the keyboard we're in Australia, Malaysia, the UK, even New Jersey.  It's pretty cool when you think about it. And it's the greatest gift that blogging has given us is friends in every corner of the world.

If Waffles and I can navigate the Design Mobile all the way from Minneapolis to the UK....well, we can take it anywhere!

Waffles!  Are you ready?

WAFFLES:  Hello.  Hello?  Um, okay I'm ready for the the shameless gulp.

KATIE:  Plug, Waffles!  Plug!

WAFFLES:  Oh yeah, um. The shameless plug. Ok.

KATIE:  *rolls eyes*

WAFFLES:  Are you feeling a little drab? Do you need a punch of color?  We're not gonna hit them are we?  Um, does your blog need a overmake, I mean makeover? From the simple to the extreme, GLOGIRLY DESIGN is here to help. Just click the pink phone and tell us what YOUR design mergency is.

Design Scene - DO NOT CROSS - An Extreme Blog Makeover

Hi everyone, Katie here.

If you're just tuning in, you might want to rewind and quickly catch up on the previous 3 days of our adventure. We've DVR'd them for you:


*toot-toot* *toot-toot* (bus horn blares)

BUS DRIVER:  You're bloody going the wrong way, you Yank! 

KATIE:  Sheesh. They don't know how to drive. They meow with silly accents. Keep calm and carry on my fluffy-

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss? The PGS thingy says you're sposed to turn left.

KATIE:  We're here. Waffles, you grab the Macbook, and I'll get the Design Scene tape up. We've got to move fast.

WAFFLES:  Um Boss? Then what?

KATIE:  Just make sure no one crosses the line. No cheesy clip art. No comic sans font. 


KATIE:  Ok, Waffles our work here is done. 

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss?  Is the mergency over then? 

WAFFLES:  Yes, Waffles. Another cat has a brand new GLOGIRLY DESIGN look. The blogosphere can breathe easy tonight. 

KATIE:  Be sure to pay our good friend, Austin, of the hilarious (CAT)achresis, a visit. He'll be happy to give you the nickel tour. And you don't even have to swim to get there. Cheerio!

WAFFLES:  Cheerios? Um, do you got milk too?

We're Still On Our Way To Save The Day

Hi everyone, Katie here.

If you're just tuning in, you might want to rewind and quickly catch up on the previous 2 days of our adventure. We've DVR'd them for you:

KATIE:  Hold on, Waffles. And hold your breath.

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss?  I can't swim.

KATIE:  Waffles, you don't have to. Are the salmon ready? Did you strap us in?

WAFFLES:  Um, yeah Boss. Just like you told me. The salmons are ready.

KATIE:  Ok Waffles, don't let go of the ropes.

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss? Are we there yet?

KATIE:  Not even close.

WAFFLES:  But Boss? You said we just had to go across the pond.

KATIE:  Waffles, did you SEE the size of this pond?

WAFFLES:  Um *sigh*  Do we have snacks?

Here We Come To Save The Day

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss? What's the mercency? 

KATIE: Waffles, when the pink phone rings like it did YESTERDAY, it means that somewhere out there in the blogosphere there's a cat in need.  A design emergency that requires our immediate attention. 

WAFFLES:  Are we there yet? 

KATIE:  No Waffles, we just past Wisconsin. Mariodacat already has a brand new GLOGIRLY DESIGN avatar. He's safe. 

WAFFLES:  Are we there yet? 

KATIE:  No Waffles, this is New Jersey.  Cathy Keisha's rockin' her GLOGIRLY avi, so she's good. Keep your paws inside the car and don't let anyone wash our windows. 

WAFFLES:  Um, but Boss? Where we going?

KATIE:  Hold on Waffles. And hold your breath.

You Share We Give - Royal Canin Spayed/Neutered Feline Formula

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I've got some new food I'm test driving.  The nice people at Royal Canin have developed a formula specifically for us kitties who've been spayed or neutered.  Why would I need a specific food just because I'm not fooling around with my mancat suitors and shopping for kitten clothes?

The Proof Is In The Numbers
-> I have a 30% decrease in energy needs BUT I have a 20% increase in appetite.
-> That means I'm 3.4 times more likely to be overweight. (gasp!)
-> A girls gotta watch her figure!

Hmmm...I wonder if the Royal Canin people can make some food for Glogirly.

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss?  GimME some!

KATIE:  Mitts off, Waffles. Royal Canin offers FOUR different formulas based on your age. You're just a kit, so get your own.

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss? You must be REALLY old then, huh?

KATIE:  *rolls eyes*

You Share, We Give
Royal Canin has a great offer called You Share, We Give. Just VISIT THEM ON FACEBOOK and share this cool infograhpic. They'll give you a coupon to try the new Spayed/Neutered cat formula for FREE!  But more important, as part of the You Share, We Give program, Royal Canin is donating  $25,000 green papers to the American Humane Association to support feline health research.

So What's The Verdict?


NOTE:  The nice people at Royal Canin gave me some food to try, but as you'd words are my own!

But I Don't WANNA Be A Pirate

KATIE:  ARrrr.


KATIE:  It's Meow Like A Pirate Day. Do I sound like a pirate?

WAFFLES:  Um, I dunno. What's a pirate?

KATIE:  You know, a pirate. Yo-ho-ho and a white puffy shirt.

WAFFLES:  But I don't WANNA be a pirate!

An Important Announcement

WAFFLES:  Um, hello?  Is anybody there?  Um, Boss?  I forget my line.


CATHY KEISHA:  YO! It iz with great pleasure that I introdeuce you to our new Cat Ruler Of The World. Everyone! ...give it up for KATIE!

(apaws, apaws, crowd goes wild)

KATIE:  On behalf of Glogirly and me, I’d like to thank all of you amazing cats, humans, goats, squirrels, bunnies, birds and dogs out there for supporting Blind Cat Rescue and Team Katie in the Campaign For A Cause - Cat Ruler Of The World Contest.  

I’d also like to thank my fellow candidates.  Glogirly and I have the utmost respect and admiration for each and every one of you and the deserving shelters you support.  To Deb Barnes and Team ZeeZoey, Holy CAT!  Your creativity and passion knows no boundaries. But please Deb, you know how I feel about those cat ears.

I want to give a special shout-out to Waffles the intern and Cathy Keisha, my stunning campaign manager and confidante.  You two sure know how to make your mews heard. And a big round of purrs for Homer the Blind Wonder Cat.  We love you.

From the outside looking in, our quirky campaign may have seemed like it was all about fun and games and pink platform sandals. But underneath all that were the kitties of Blind Cat Rescue.  Underneath the silly imagery and funny anecdotes were the homeless blind cats with no place to go, cats that have been abandoned and forgotten.  THEY are the real winners today.  And the truly remarkable humans that dedicate their lives to helping them…THEY are the heroes.

To Alana Miller, the human behind Blind Cat Rescue, we thank YOU.  The world is a better place for blind and homeless cats because of you. And because of you, the WORLD is a better place.

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss? We got a special message from Blind Cat Rescue. Can I read it?

KATIE:  Do you know how to read?

CATHY KEISHA:  Waffles, just hold onto the card and don't drop it.

"Thank you so much to all of our supporters that worked so hard voting and sharing for Blind Cat Rescue to win this wonderful prize!! We are humbled at everyone's kindness and taking time out of their busy schedules to vote and share. This prize will help us supply the cats with the daily necessities and helps us stretch our funds for other needs. We are so grateful to Glogirly for believing in us, nominating us and working so hard to help us win."
~ Alana Miller, Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary

All five runners-up shelters in the contest have been awarded a generous gift of 1,000 meals from Halo Pets! My fellow candidate, Austin of CATachresis, is located across the pond and since the meals can't be shipped to the UK, Zee & Zoey are having a GIVEAWAY!  They will be awarding the 1,000 meals to a US (501c) shelter based on YOUR comments! Winning shelter will be determined with a random drawing. Just one comment/shelter per person, so get your friends to help!

Zee & Zoey will also be giving away FIVE $20 GIFT CARDS from for randomly drawn reader comments.

***This is all happening on the Zee & Zoey blog, so be sure to teleport over and leave a comment with the shelter you'd like to see win the 1,000 meals.

Kitty Superhighway Or Bust(ed)

Hi everyone, Katie here.

Just yesterday, my friend Nellie, the Cat not really from Hell contacted me with an offer I couldn't refuse. I had no idea she was moonlighting as a Used Car Salescat. Well, since the Campaign for a Cause Contest came to a close last week, she decided a rugged, all-terrain vehicle would be better suited to her needs and realized it was time to unload the Nelliemobile.

Well I of course jumped at the chance. What's not to love?  It's got just enough room for me, Cathy Keisha and Waffles. It's a convertible. And it's PINK. Sure it's got some miles on it....all that campaigning back and forth, to and from the UK really adds up. But she made a sweetheart of a deal.

CATHY KEISHA:  YO, Katie! You're goin the WRONG WAY!

WAFFLES:  Um, boss? Why is that flashy box chasing us?
