Waffles Wednesday: Pour Me a Mad Kitty Cocktail!

Hi everybuddy, Waffles here.

GUESS WHAT GUESS WHAT GUES WHAT?!?!?!?  We just got the news! The email went something like this:

"Dear Waffles,  (ok, they actually said, Dear Glogirly)  
CONGRATULATIONS!!! Your BRILLIANT can design for Mike's Harder has won!"

They called me BRILLIANT!!! Did you see that? Brilliant!!! I'm pretty sure that means I'm handsome AND smart.

Speech! Speech!
I want to thank the Academy– um, I mean all my friends and fans, who voted for Mad Kitty Cocktail! Thanks to YOU, your votes and especially your comments, Mike got the message. And now, not only will a CAT be on their next collectors edition can, but the cat on the can will be ME!!!

And as if having my face on the can wasn't awesome enough, we win a cash prize too! This means we'll be able to share and make a nice donation to our shelter kitty friends at Minnesota's Feline Rescue, Inc.

Facebook LOVE
Here's one of the official announcements from the Mike's Harder Facebook page. If you're as excited as we are, pop over to their page,  spread some kitty love and tell them how smart they are for picking Mad Kitty Cocktail!  Leave a Comment on Mike's Facebook Page HERE.
The new cans will be available this fall. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled and will let you know just as soon as I'm sitting on the liquor store shelves.

And if you think THIS is cool... well, there's just ONE DAY LEFT until MAYDAY!!!

See you tomorrow!

These Secrets Are Making Me Dizzy

WAFFLES:  So Boss. This MAYDAY secret thing? Is it still a–

KATIE:  Secret?


KATIE:  What do YOU think?

WAFFLES:  I think you should tell me.

KATIE:  Ok. It's a secret.

WAFFLES:  But Boss! C'mon. So are we going on a trip? Are you going to theVET?

KATIE:  Are YOU going to the vet?

WAFFLES:  Are you having a makeover?

KATIE:  Do I NEED a makeover?

WAFFLES:  Are you giving me a present? Like toys and treats and stuff?

KATIE:  Waffles, you may find this hard to believe but the blogosphere does not revolve around you and your treats & toys.

WAFFLES:  The blogosphere REVOLVES??? No wonder I'm dizzy. What with all this spinning and stuff.

KATIE:  Yeah, it definitely explains a lot.

Sniffing Out a Secret

WAFFLES:  So Boss, what's the secret MAYDAY thing?  Do we have to be all dressed up for it? Is there a dress code?

KATIE:  I told you before, Waffles. It's a SECRET. 


KATIE:  And what did I tell you about secrets? 

WAFFLES:  Um, that I have a big mouth?

KATIE:  And that you can't KEEP a secret.

WAFFLES:  So if I can't keep a secret, can I give it away?

KATIE:  That's not how secrets work, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  What if I guess? Can I guess? Maybe I can figure out where you're hiding the secret!

KATIE:  WAFFLES! What are you DOING???

WAFFLES:  I'm just trying to sniff out the secret, Boss.

Marking My Territory

KATIE:  *from across the room*  Waffles, you're on my stool. Get off my stool.

WAFFLES:  Since when is this YOUR stool, Boss?

KATIE:  Uh...since FOREVER.

WAFFLES:  I don't think it's your stool, Boss. 

KATIE:  Nope, pretty sure that's my stool. You know, kind of like how this is my Townhouse, my food dish, my BLOG–

WAFFLES:  Um, is your name on it? I don't see your name on it. Is your name on it?

KATIE:  You want my name? I'll give you my name.

KATIE:  There. This stool never looked so good. Now I just need about 247 more of these frames.

KATIE:  Well the whole disappearing thing is a start.

WAFFLES:  I know! Let us go on a journey!

KATIE:  Does this mean you're going to disappear?

WAFFLES:  Oh Master, this journey is doth fun!

KATIE:  Waffles, do you even know what 'doth' means?

Mustache Envy

Glogirljy, Funny, Cats
WAFFLES:  Hey Boss?  How does my mustache look?

KATIE:  WHAT mustache, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  I'm growing a mustache. I'm a whole 1 and a half years old now. That means I'm a MANCAT. So I think I should grow a mustache. You know, to impress the ladies and get dates.

KATIE: Waffles, it doesn't matter if you're 1½ or 100½, there's no mustache in your future.

WAFFLES:  But YOU have a mustache, Boss.

KATIE:  That's right Waffles.

KATIE:  And there's only room for ONE mustache in THIS Townhouse.

Hi everybuddy, Waffles here.

Since the Boss horned in on my Waffles Wednesday post about treats yesterday, Glogirly said today is MINE. All mine. Well sort of mine. 

We're all getting ready for BlogPaws, the big pet blogging and social media conference. It's just a couple weeks away and GLOGIRLY DESIGN is in full swing with preparations. I'm an excellent helper on account of my natural ability to give Glogirly headbonks while she's working on her computer. 

To help spread the word about our design stuff, Glogirly is bringing eleventy-billion of these pawsome CATBELLS to the conference. All the cool cats (and dogs) will be ringing them at the awards presentation. Last year they made so much noise, even the Westminster-Dog-Guy-Emcee was running for cover.

Book Cover for the Rescue Me anthology 
that Sparkle's human is working on.
Book Covers! 
Biz Cards!  

Glogirly has also been giving makeovers to blogs and busy cards... I mean biz-ness cards. Facebook profiles and Twitter too. Stickers and postcards and books and media cats... um, I mean media kits.

The Boss and I are just glad she's remembering our breakfast and dinner everyday.

We thought you might enjoy seeing just a few of the things she's been working on lately. WARNING - there may be some images of DOGS ahead. But they're smart dogs. They had to be smart to hire us cats.

Oh, and there's even a VET!!! She lives in Australia though, so she didn't even need to wear those big protective gloves when we were helping her.

I bet you didn't know that not EVERYthing Glogirly does has a cat or a dog on it. Sometimes she even designs people stuff.

My stepbrother, Gabe, is getting married soon so GLOGIRLY DESIGN came to the rescue. Gloman took the photos and Glogirly did the design work.

I still think they should have chosen the picture of ME when I was photobombing the happy couple...

Waffles Wednesday: Just Say YES PLEASE to #PawNatural Cat Treats & Going Green

KATIE:  So Waffles, we need to talk.

WAFFLES:  But Boss, my mouth is full. I'm not supposed to talk with my mouth full. Glogirly said.

KATIE:  Waffles, yesterday was Earth Day you know.

WAFFLES:  I know! Kind of like today is Waffles Wednesday, right?

KATIE:  Not exactly. So, like I was saying–

WAFFLES:  Well I'm kind of busy, Boss.

KATIE:  Busy???

WAFFLES:  Yeah, I'm busy looking for treats.

KATIE:  Waffles, you're ALWAYS looking for something to eat. That's the problem. We need to talk about your treat choices. Earth Day got me to thinking that all that stuff you stick in your mouth isn't exactly natural or healthy. This would be a purr-fect time to turn over a new leaf and go green.

WAFFLES:  Green? I LOVE green! I have a green hat, a greet bow tie, a green–

KATIE:  Waffles, forget your wardrobe and pay attention. We're going to talk treats.

Just Say NO to: 

1.  NO Junk Food
No fast food, no crunchy carbohydrates or empty calories.

2.  NO Hands
Don't bite the hand that feeds you. As tempting as they are, chewing on fingers and toes usually doesn't end well.

3.  NO Toys
Toys were made for hunting, chasing, flying and fetching. Not eating.

Just Say YES PLEASE to:

1.  Pure Protein
Freeze-dried protein treats are a long time FAVE here at the Townhouse. Chicken, salmon, turkey... we like to spread the love.

2.  Low/No Carb
Yeah, we like those crunchy morsels about as much as Glogirly likes her potato chips and donuts. But us kitties are meat-eaters and find it much easier to maintain our girlish and boyish figures with low/no-carb snacks and food. Truth be told, they taste better too!

3.  Label Love
All natural. No corn, no wheat, no soy. No synthetic chemicals or chemical preservatives. We get up close and purr-sonal with our labels and make sure there's nothing but the good stuff inside. We look for single-ingredient treats, like these freeze dried pieces of love. Nothing but chicken breast here.

KATIE:  See Waffles?  These natural treats taste WAY better than Gloman's fingers or Glogirly's toes... and far more satisfying than eating a wand toy.

Only Natural Pet
Today's blog post is sponsored by the nice people at Only Natural Pet. We introduced them to you a couple of weeks ago right HERE on our blog and we're just now starting to taste test their unique line of healthy, all-natural treats and food. It's our way of taking the #PawNatural Challenge and incorporating more green and healthy choices into our lifestyle.

Stay tuned... in just a couple of weeks we'll be reviewing FIVE of their unique feline-friendly products. Maybe you'll want to make some natural choices and go green too!

What Do the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy & Santa Claws Have in Common???

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss!  Did the Easter Bunny leave you a quarter under your pillow yesterday?

KATIE:  No, Waffles. That's the Tooth Fairy.

WAFFLES:  Whoa! The Easter Bunny left you TEETH? 

KATIE:  No, Waffles. The Easter Bunny brings eggs and the Tooth–

WAFFLES:  You got EGGS under your pillow??? That must've been messy.

KATIE:  You've GOT to be kidding. 

WAFFLES:  So what about Santa Claws. Does he ride with the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy? Who drives?

KATIE:  I am SO out of here.

WAFFLES:  Sheesh, this holiday stuff is confusing. At least I'm clear on the Great Leper Can.

Easter Magic Trick

KATIE:  Uh oh. I've got a bad feeling about his. Do I dare?

KATIE:  The Easter Bunny is just not what he used to be.

WAFFLES:  Whaddaya mean I'm not what I used to be? ... um, what did I used to be?

Dear Friends,
Everyone here at the Townhouse wishes you a Happy Easter and Passover.
Be kind to each other. Even those wearing big pink ears.

♥︎ Katie & Waffles
