A big shout out to my friend Brian for inspiring the name of this post. It's a soap opera around here, I tell you. After the infamous *door crack* seen round the blogosphere, it came time for a face-to-face meet-and-greet. That is according to Glogirly.
Since it's apparent the little orange monster is here to stay, I'd be fine just keeping him locked up in the Kitten Room. This thought fell on deaf ears though. Deaf from listening to Waffles Too mew and mew and mew and MEW I'm sure.
So we all gathered by the Kitten Room door like we were going to sing Kumbaya. Gloman with a camera in one hand and Glogirly with a large towel in another. What? Was she planning on taking a shower all of a sudden? She mumbled something about "saving" the kitten if things went south. Saving the KITTEN??? Whatever.
The door opened slowly and the small beast emerged. He hesitated for a second or two then he ripped into action. Running, smelling, playing, jumping and pretty much ignoring me. I stood by in shock and amazement. He approached, somewhat cautiously, and I returned with a nice hiss.
This dance went on for about an hour. Waffles Too is such a show off. Twirling on the steps, cooing like a newborn baby, capitalizing on the cute factor. I can see right through him.
We each maintained an appropriate distance. For a little pea brain, his instincts are pretty good. He knows I'm not to be messed with. He's curious about me, but will purposefully walk around me.
Glogirly said she was proud of me. Proud that my ears stayed in an upright position indicating curiosity. Proud that I didn't go all postal.
Gloman said he was proud of Waffles Too. He was pleased that Waffles didn't cower away from me in fear. In fact, Waffles didn't even seem to care that I was there.
The next thing I knew, Waffles was scooped up and put back in the Kitten Room. YES! I remained victorious. Until I heard talk of the next day's plans...Waffles & I "spending the day together." I slept with one eye open.
COMING UP NEXT - A Whole Day Of Togetherness
With some AMAZING photo documentation.
Good job team Glo - we are glad that the meeting went well. We hope you enjoy your day together.ReplyDelete

Don't worry Katie...we've gotten used to that little whipersnapper Raz and he's actually turned into a fun pal!ReplyDelete
The Florida Furkids
Yay Katie! You're such a doll. We can't wait to hear about what happens next.ReplyDelete
Sounds like "well done" to everybody on the first day. We are proud of you, Katie. You are our star of a friend.ReplyDelete
So glad it went well! Excited to see this amazing photo documentation tomorrow :-)ReplyDelete
Don't worry Katie. You are still QueenReplyDelete
Wow, things are moving along. I know you arent thrilled, Katie, but you seem to be being a good girl! Trust me, peace in the house is worth putting up with the little mew-face!ReplyDelete
Poor Katie! Things are "clipping along" aren't they? We expect to find you two cuddlin in a sunpuddle by next week! MOL!ReplyDelete
The lady says that watching this whole thing unfold has turned into the highlight of her day. Pitiful, ain't it?ReplyDelete
Both Katie and Waffles Too seem to be doing great!
Katie, I can tell you feel dubious about all this. I don't blame you!ReplyDelete
Just remember Santa is watching!ReplyDelete
Katie, he is reeling you in with orangey cuteness!ReplyDelete
We bet the Glopersons brought Waffles Too so close to Christmas. They KNOW you have to stay on the nice list!ReplyDelete
We are on the ends of our seat and we can't wait for the next episode of Hone With Kitty. Have a terrific Thursday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly.
Despite our blogcation, Austin and I are glued to this unfoldiing drama :)ReplyDelete
Woo! Glad it went well! But should you spend a whole day together so early?!?!ReplyDelete
Confess Katie you has a soft spot for the little guy.ReplyDelete
Hi Katie. I was in Waffles Too's place when I first came to live with Mom. There were TWO big cats here, and neither one of them liked me either. But Gizzy, well, eventually I won him over and we got to be best buds. Waffles Too needs you to teach him how to be a good cat, and I can tell you're an expert. Just be the boss, and he'll learn how to do whatever you teach him.ReplyDelete
You might even get to like him.
We're on the edges of our seats with this....remembering how it was with angel Annie, when we both came to live with our human. ::Shudder::ReplyDelete
We're sure hoping for a happy, peaceful ending (or beginning, perhaps) to this story!
Hi Katie ,I have just given you and Award for being so good! xxSpeedyReplyDelete
Katie, MomKatt & I can only describe your expression in that first photo as "STRICKEN"!ReplyDelete
Oh yeah, that "cute factor" gets hoomans every time! But look at it THIS way ... (and this is REALLY evil) ...
YOU, as "Elder Cat", can shape him. Yes, MOLD him, form him. He's like soft, wet clay in your paws right now - what an opportunity you have ....... *wicked evil meow*
Glad to see that you didn´t eat up that cute little Waffles Too :)ReplyDelete
Oh, dear Katie. We would come over and sign Kumbaya to you, but that put your ears flat back.(We have references.)ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness. We thought you were going to tell us it tastes like chickenReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
I find I am eager to read the days news on the intro to the new one. I am curious tho, Waffles retired, but is he still in the house? Waffles Too is just sooo cuteReplyDelete
ok, so he is trouble...but just think - once he gets his release, you can blame any number of things on HIM!!ReplyDelete
Allie: Just so long as no one uses the term "shock and awwww" to describe the Interloper, we're good. *giggle!*ReplyDelete
Oh Katie, Katie, Katie...my heart can't take much more of this. Just wait'll that little monster puts you off your stride in the midst of chaos by acting sweet and...and... BATHING you. (yes, Faraday did that this morning)
I mean seriously, a brat can't change his fur. Can he?
I'm the lone holdout over here by the way. Mother's all *squee* and *coo* and the boys are pumping their paws in anticipation of another male kitten conquest.
It's sickening, it is.
You two will be fast friends in no time! You talk tough, but we know you'll like your new sibling :)ReplyDelete
katie; de LAST place ya wanna bee rite now iz de postal...they iz crazed down ther what with de holidaze N ya mite be waitin in line til de salmon swim upstreem....ReplyDelete
Well pretty Katie, I am very proud of you too! I think you can teach him lots!ReplyDelete
I don’t know what it is with this new generation of kittens, but I know when I was younger, we were taught to fear our elders. Would a little cowering and hiding in the corner be so much to ask of you, Waffles Too? The perennial cuteness from you and your being completely oblivious to Katie trying to melt you with her glare is wearing thin on my nerves… I should know… we have one of these maniacs in our house too and he just doesn’t seem to understand at all that he is supposed to be scared of us bigger and older cats. Whatever.… I’ll just go back to playing with him when I think no one is looking…ReplyDelete
Loved the part about the towel! Hilarious!!!!ReplyDelete
HAH! As Brian was saying 'you could teach him lots' I am MOLFTO!ReplyDelete
I'll just bet you are gonna *teach* him a lot and the first word for today kittens is
Solidarity with you my sistah Katie. We all know that those tiny ears and mews & paws are just demon seed in disguise. The humans just don't get it.
How else do they think they have managed to tolerate wet yaks in the middle of the night? shredded furrrrniture?
Ms. Stella O'Houligan
Katie you dear sweet girl! These photos are priceless as is your expression!! I am GLAD you hissed at Waffles Too! Gotta let him know that YOU were there first!!ReplyDelete
I am happy that you didn't "go postal" and your description of the entire event was just hilarious. Singing "Kumbuyah" MOL
Everything seems to be going well Katie. We hope it continues tomorrow. Having a little brother isn't so bad you know.ReplyDelete
Katie, you are being such a good girl!ReplyDelete
I hope Waffles goes from evil invader to playmate soon.
At least he'll give you a hobby...
Purrs from Maggie
Awwwww, this bodes well.ReplyDelete
Well Katie, you are doing better with Waffles Too than we are with little Jan who is only visiting here. We have to give you 12 paws up for being so calm.ReplyDelete
Miss Katie, we are glad you are being good, cause the Momma keeps telling us to be good cause santa is watching.ReplyDelete
All we can say is, he better make this "being good" stuff worth our while!
Harry, Dexter and Tipp
Oh you poor cat! You look so forlorn in that top photo. This is all wrong. I can teleport over there in a second and W2 will be history. Mags is going through the same thing right now. A kitten room. A new CAT, not a kitten. When will it end for you guys and your pain and suffering? Hey, you're still numero uno with this ghetto kitteh.ReplyDelete
Hey, Waffles...it's okay...don't let that big cat scare you!ReplyDelete
Hmmm, if this is what getting a new kitten in the house is all about, I'm hoping my humans don't get any bright ideas. ha ha - I've got things just the way I want them around here. Poor Katie - I do feel for you girl. However, M is gong "awwww Waffles is so cute." Pffffft!ReplyDelete
Psst...Waffles Too, give me a call. I have got some great ways you can mess with Katie's mind! They worked great on Sassy!ReplyDelete
Srsly, younger siblings are the perfect patsy when accidents occur!ReplyDelete
OH, Katie!! I hear you so much about Waffles (even tho, I kinda the orangy color fur) Looks like Waffles is there to stay--better get the butter and syrup ready, your plate is gonna be full! :)ReplyDelete
What! No well placed whaps? No ginormous yeowels and hisses?ReplyDelete
All Waffles Too needs to remember is that EVERYONE in the house is the Boss of Him. Especially, most especially, YOU.ReplyDelete
OMC--You don't think he'll ::shudder:: eat your FOOD, do you? I don;t think I am going to be able to sleep.
Yoo did great! Waffles had his ears at da all allert angle tho. He knew yoo were there. He was jus playin' wif ya - til later...ReplyDelete
