Hi everyone, Katie here.
Glogirly recently had the honor of receiving three Certificates of Excellence from the Cat Writers' Association. She's only been a member of the CWA for a little over a year now and these are her very first awards.
For those of you that haven't heard of the CWA, it's a journalism organization founded to encourage professionalism among cat writers, photographers, artists and broadcasters.
Each of her certificates are for excellence in photography. Clearly the the judges were impaired though...given one of her winning photos, 'Waffles is More Than Half in the Bag,' features the orange terrorist.
Sure hope he doesn't get his sticky paws all over her pretty awards. He's worse than Gloman after a bag of Cheetos.
This year's CWA conference is coming up soon. Halloween to be exact. Not only is Glogirly attending the conference, she'll be teaching a session on photography!
I've already started helping her prepare her presentation slides.
Oh that just sounds so exciting! Concatulations!ReplyDelete
Concatulations on the certificates...well deserved! I would love to be a member of the Cat Writer's Association one day :)ReplyDelete
How exciting for Glogirly but erm Katie? You got a bit of the beached whale look about you there. Are you sure the diet worked?ReplyDelete
Those are some old photos of me, Patty. Don't worry....I'm down about 2 pounds since that beached-whale-look.
; ) Katie
The CWA is wonderful group. You forgot to mention you're doing the presentation with me. And we both won Muse Medallions.ReplyDelete
Please tell me she is taking you and waffles with her to teach the class. She could get all her students to photograph you two - that would be brilliant, I would sign up for that!ReplyDelete
Paws up for your human's C of E's, Katie! My human is "thinking" about her slideshow for her presentation - I haven't seen any evidence of it yet...ReplyDelete
Concatulations!!! Katie, you don't look like a beached whale!!! You're gorgeous!!! It sounds like another fun trip fur Glogirly! Will the sitter referee you & the orange terrorist?!?ReplyDelete
ConCatulations on winning the CWA award!ReplyDelete

Concatulations on the awards! We hope it's a good meeting on Halloween... what a fun date for a conference.ReplyDelete
The head peep really wants to learn more about the CWA. We need to remind her to talk to one of you members about it.
Congratulations! You always have such nice lighting in your photographs. The pictures of air Waffles are awesome. I'd sure like to go to your seminar.ReplyDelete
Congrats!!! And we bet her class will be great.ReplyDelete
Concatulations. The photos here are always of the highest quality so those awards are well-deserved. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
Congratulations, Glogirly! Katie is looking quite fetching in today's photos. :)ReplyDelete
Congrats to Glogirly! That is quite an honor. Our mom wanted to join CWA, but we don't think they allow you to join for blog writing anymore (our mom is a freelance writer, but doesn't submit to magazines; all her work is on-line).ReplyDelete
We hope Glogirly has a nice time at the conference. It must feel really good that they want her to teach a session!!
CONCATS to Glogirly! Mommy envies the light in your condo...nice and soft.ReplyDelete
Congratulations! A very well deserved award. :)ReplyDelete
How awesome is that! Absolutely terrific and well deserved!ReplyDelete
Whoa! Concats to Glogirly! She must remember in her course that not everybody has such photogenic cats such as you and me to work with. How does one join the CWA? I'm a cat and I write. Do I need other qualifications?ReplyDelete
It does help to have such gorgeous subjects!ReplyDelete
Concatulations to GloGirly on her awards!
CONCATULATIONS TO YOU!!!!ReplyDelete
Have fun at the conference!!!!
Congrats. I always love your photos.ReplyDelete
Concatulations, GloGirly! Your photos really are fabulous. And no, Katie, you do NOT look like a beached whale! You look plush. And very clean.ReplyDelete
Hooray! ConCATulations to Glogirly on those well-deserved awards. And what an exciting honor to speak at the CWA conference. :)ReplyDelete
Oohhhh... congratulations are in order for sure.ReplyDelete
That's very impressive AND deserving. Of course, you do have might good-lookin' models. That must help just a tad, huh? Just a tad...
Congrats, Glogirly! Katie, you're doing a great job helping her prepare her slides. She'll be ready in no time.ReplyDelete
WOW! Glogirly is practically in the stratosphere she is so elevated!! Katie no doubt you will make sure her feet stay on the ground! ;) ConCats to you on your mentoring!! xxReplyDelete

Looking forward to seeing you at CWA conference. Our first time attending as well. Would love to take your photography class.
Allie: HA! Mother refused to open our award - claiming she KNOWS Faraday would *ahem* "sign" it with his fangs....ReplyDelete
FaRADaY: I WOULD NOT! We don't wanna see it anyways. It'd only make Allie more insufferable, since it was HER photo. So THERE.
wow how exciting and congrats on the certificates,xx SpeedyReplyDelete
Congratulations! I sure wish I could attend your class on photography. If I had to actualy buy film and then pay for pictures, there would be no photos at all on my blog. Most go in the trash, but I am still trying.ReplyDelete
