Downton Caturday

Highclere Castle -
KATIE:  In honor of the Caturday Art Blog Hop, we've decided to take a step back in time, and across the pond, to one of our favorite television dramas, Downton Abbey.

Highclere Castle -

KATIE:  Waffles, does EVERYTHING have to be about you???

WAFFLES:  Um, yes? 

KATIE:  Yes, what?

WAFFLES:  Um, yes... your Ladyboat?

KATIE:  SHIP, Waffles! Your Ladyship!

WAFFLES:  Jeez, Boss. Are you sure this isn't Downton Crabby?

KATIE:  Forget it, Waffles. Let's get on with it. So a few months back there were some hilarious photos making the rounds online. Dogster, Catster, the Huffington Post... everyone was sharing photo comparisons of the Downton Abbey characters as cats and dogs. 

So today, we ask, "What if..."

WAFFLES:  Um, what's a valet??? Is that like a mallet?

KATIE:  I sure hope this means I don't have to clean my own litter box.

KATIE:  *Her Ladynip* ... Except for the goofy get-up, I could get used to this.

  1. No, I definitely think you fit the Dowager Duchess far better than Anna. The Duchess has an attitude that I am certain is modeled after ours...

  2. My human has no idea what this show is about - but your take on it is no doubt way better anyhow!

  3. I do not watch it either but I've seen enough about it to know that Katie is more Her Ladyship than she is Anna.

  4. Absolutely hilarious! What great graphics!

    Happy Caturday, kittehz.

  5. We don't watch it either but we agree with Sparkle...your version looks awesome! Very clever.

  6. We're huge fans of the show and this is another fun and funny parody. We'd love to see more!

  7. We love Downton Abbey too - but how much better would it be with cats?!

    Waffles, you're a hoot as per usual and Katie - you make the best ever Ladynip. <3

  8. Great. We love Downton Abbey!

  9. We've heard it's a great show. You are definitely a Duchess, Katie! Waffles looks very sophistiCATed, but we all know he's still goofy in an adorable way!

  10. Oh your Ladynip,the trouble you could get the muderous Mr. Waffs into....

    We're huge Downton fans too, tell Glogirly that Mom says to check out this "Downton Abby episodes done entirely on Facebook". She says tell her it's hiss-terical!

    *exiting, exchanging kisses on the cheek* Lady Willow

  11. You both look purrfect and ready for your own series!

  12. HAH! Like Sparkle, we’ve never seen that show but have seen it spoofed on Molly the Wally and Sammy’s blog. Her LadyNip. Hah!

  13. OMC, this is the very best Downton Tabby Parody we have seen anywhere!!! Waffles and Katie should be cast in the real Downton Abbey. They would definitely class the place up. You are always so clever and truly the best Cat Blog on the block. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily OLivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  14. My mom-person LOVE Downton Abbey <3
    Miss Katie you sure are furry pretty in the first photo <3


  15. Bwaa!! Haa!! Haa!! Snort, cough! Mes just LOVES it when coffee comes out Mommy's nose,but mehates it when it gets on my furs! Yous guys ROCKS!!!
    Downton Tabby!!!
    Bwaaa!!! Haaa!!! Haaa!!!!
    Kisses Nellie

  16. So funny! I do think that Waffles and Katie would be upstairs cats.

  17. As a huge fan of Downton Abby, I love this! I loved Mr. Bates/Mr. Waffs.

  18. Bwah ha ha! Love it! Downton Crabby? Ladyboat?? You guys are too funny!

  19. haha! Your photos always make smile!
    And i wish you the best of luck in the Mikes Hard comp! We went and voted for you yesterday!

  21. I don't watch the show, either, but somebody at Feline Rescue does - because we once had Mr. Bates himself as a guest at the shelter. Here's his picture. Of course, he was adopted by someone in need of a butler.

  22. Love the show. Great pix! Downton Tabby indeed!

  23. OMC! The mom watches that show...we hope she doesn't try to put us in any of those getups.

  24. We laydeez canNOT resist a Tabby in an ascot!

    And Katie, shouldn't that be "LadynipS"?? After all, you DO have six...MOL!!

  25. Maybe the two of you could have your own show?

    The Florida Furkids

  26. Hilarious!! I love this show! I love this Caturday! A castle full of cats would be lovely!

  27. Katie you do suffer!

  28. We soooo love your Ladynip - but confess we have never seen Downton Abbey. We do, however, remember the original Upstairs Downstairs and The Duchess of Duke Street.

  29. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE! We've voted for Waffles, and been telling others to do the same. :)

  30. Mother's snickering. She says she watches Downton and YOU, Katie, have The Look down far better than the Dowager Duchess ever will!

  31. Not sure how we missed this!! Her Ladynip Ladyboat ... whatever! MOL

    The Staff wants to know if you have "Call the Midwife"?

  32. LADYBOAT! MOL!!!!!! This is SO cute...everything about it is pawsome....we watch Downton Abbey and really wish that Waffles and Katie were actually on the show...I mean Isis the dog is nice, but they need a cat in that house! Or at least Carson should foster some kittens!


Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
