What's In The Box?

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I've been waiting for this box to arrive for over three weeks now, ever since the Campaign For A Cause Contest started. Thank Cod, the UPS man came through in the nick of time.

It's been a challenge for Cathy Keisha and I to keep Waffles' paws off the box. Overeager interns you know, they want to touch everything.

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss? Are we gonna open the box? 

CATHY KEISHA: YO, Waffles! Pipe down.

KATIE:  Waffles, WE are not going to open the box.

KATIE:  My platforms are here! My platforms are here!  I'm somebody! I'm somebody! My platforms are here!

WAFFLES:  Um, Boss? What are we gonna do with those? They're kinda big. And tall.

CATHY KEISHA: YO, Waffles! That's cuz they're 'sposed to be. Don't you know ANYTHING about politicks?

KATIE:  I sure hope I can stand up in these things.

WAFFLES:  I think they're pawsome.

CATHY KEISHA:  Yup, they're just right.

KATIE:  Hi everyone! Thank you for coming out today. This is our last big rally before the voting begins tomorrow in the Cat Ruler Of The World Campaign For A Cause Contest.  My fellow candidates, the press, and many of you have been asking a lot of questions about platforms lately and what Team Katie really stands for. Some have asked what exactly I'd DO as Cat Ruler of the World. How can I, a sassy tuxie kitty from Minneapolis, make a difference?

Well, as much as I'd like to, I can't bring about world peace. I can't give every homeless cat a family to call their own. I can't grow fields of green papers and catnip. I had to think long and hard over many a lengthy nap to realize I have only one thing to offer. A smile. It's pretty simple really, but I know that sometimes we get busy with life and forget about them. One smile at a time, one laugh, one giggle, even the occasional MOL-LOL moment...that's how this kitty can make the world a better place.

And that's what GLOGIRLY is all about. Oh, there's plenty of sarcasm on the horizon, silly imagery, and a perspective on life that could only come from a cat. Just what you'd expect from me and my girl. But we'll always have a smile here waiting for you to lighten your load.

I know, it's sounds almost TOO simple. But the power of a smile is not to be underrated. It's pretty hard to be mean while you're smiling or sad while you're laughing. In the words of Miss Phyllis Diller, "A smile is a curve that sets everything straight."

So there you go. That's my platform. Plain and simple.
...ok, the awesome pink suede sandals are a nice bonus.

YOU'RE INVITED!  Don't Miss Our Get-Out-The-Vote Twitter Pawty for Blind Cat Rescue!
Cathy Keisha and I are hosting a Get-Out-The-Vote Twitter Pawty this Monday 9/10 from 7-10pm EST. It's all to raise awareness for BLIND CAT RESCUE and rally votes for the blind kitties. There's even going to be some awesome GLOGIRLY DESIGN prizes!  Click here for the #Vote4Katie Twitter Pawty Invite and visit for even more info on the pawty. Be there or be SQUARE!


We hope you're enjoying our political spin. There's more silliness on the horizon, in fact you never know what political landscape Katie might find herself in the middle of. We think laughter is food for the soul. Quite possibly more tasty than tuna and salmon.

But the message behind our mischief is not a laughing matter. Please help us help the amazing cats of Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary

Voting starts in just TWO days!

voting runs 9/11-9/14
