Hi everyone, Katie & Waffles On-A-Stick-Here.
One of the highlights of our trip to BlogPaws
was meeting our friends, Firefighter Dayna & Molly The Fire Safety Dog. I know, I know... Molly's a DOG. But she DOES wear a pretty black and white coat and she even likes cats. Glogirly became friends with Dayna & Molly when she designed their blog, business cards and swag for them. They really wanted to put their best paws forward for BlogPaws.

They surprised us with an amazing honor. They made us HONORARY FIRE SAFETY CATS!!! We even got hats. (The jury's still out on whether the REAL Katie & Waffles will want to wear their hats...but us flat cats think they're pretty cool.)
Their blog, Fire Safety Rocks
, was a finalist in the Nose-to-Nose Awards for Best Cause Blog. When Dayna and Molly were unexpectedly called away from BlogPaws to appear at a fire safety event in New York City, they asked US if we would accept the award on their behalf, should they be lucky enough to win. And they DID!!!

Because an important part of fire safety is being prepared, Molly the Fire Safety Dog pre-recorded an acceptance speech that Glogirly was to play on her iPhone into the microphone up on stage.
When emcee David Frei (the voice of Westminster) announced Fire Safety Rocks as the Best Cause Blog Winner, Glogirly ran to the stage with both of us, Katie & Waffles On-A-Stick in one hand and her iPhone in the other. (We even wore our hats.) She didn't have enough hands for everything so the emcee had to hold us while she played Molly's speech into the microphone. I bet David Frei had never held a couple of flat cats wearing fireman helmets before!
Just click below to hear what Molly had to say. (She even mentioned Katie & Waffles, the Fire Safety Cats!)
