I Count Four & A Prayer from Katie

Dear Glogirly,

Four. I count four days that you've been gone. FOUR!!!

That's 96 hours. Or 5,760 minutes. Or 345,600 seconds.

If you're gone much longer, I'm going to run out of TOES. And fyi... I refuse to count Waffles' toes. I know where they've been.

Please come home soon.


Now I lay me down to nap.
I pray to Cod I will not snap.
Waffles here, cat sitter there,
It's oh so much for me to bear.

Freeze dried salmon, that's my price.
A tub or two would sure be nice.
Some privacy, a nice sunbeam.
Maybe it's all just a dream.

It's Been 4 Days Since Glogirly Left

Dear Friends,
While Glogirly & Gloman are galavanting across the country, we'll continue to post daily updates on my mental state, physical concision and the goings-on here at the Townhouse. In particular, I'll be monitoring Waffles' behavior and issuing demerits for all infractions. 

Sadly we won't be able to visit blogs much and our Facebook page just might start breeding dust bunnies. If you usually come here straight from Facebook, you might want to consider subscribing by email. Otherwise it's going to get mighty lonely around here.




  1. As IF your toes haven't trod the same box...

    LOVE your poem!

  2. Oh Katie, I am so sorry this is so hard on you. I hope your "price" gets paid.

  3. Katie,
    I'll bet that if you tried to make friends you would find the cat sitter to be very nice.

  4. Allie: oh girlfriend, I'd hold out for the Big One: an entire Wild Caught (never farm raised), fresh off the boat...ALL your own.

  5. Aaaaw Katie this too shall pass. :)

    Luv ya'


  6. I bet Sparkle felt kind of like that when my human left town.

  7. Your prayer is lovely, Katie, we're sure Ceiling Cat heard it ! Purrs

  8. Poor Katie! You suffer so much! Cod heard your heart-wrenching prayer!

  9. Katie and Waffles, you obviously haven't got your humans as well trained as you thought! They LEAVE you??

  10. You can borrow my toesies to count on, Katie. I got extra ones. ~Ernie

  11. What a simply dreadful turn of events... We do hope Glogirly and Gloman will be home soon to save you from such despair!

    Purrs from the Zee and Zoey Gang!

  12. Glogirly and Gloman should only be able to be gone the number of days on your one paw, Katie.

  13. poor Katie. they better bring home something nice for you

  14. Poor Katie. Hope they bring you something good when they come back home.

  15. Poor dear Katie, it will all be back to normal before you know it.

  16. Oh pretty Katie..what a sweet (mol) little prayer..I'm sure they will be home soon to rescue you..Hugs..

  17. snap? SNAP??? What, snap at Waffles, snap the sitters fingers? OMC you won't snap in half will you?
    Glogirly! Gloman! come home quick, Katie needs you.

  18. You will survive, just go nap and nap and nap and it will soon be over.

  19. Love your toesies picture my dear! Great poem Katie. Salmon sure sounds good, wonder if I could talk Mom into getting me some.....

  20. Adorable poem and precious photos. Any demerits yet? XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
