TV Trip Tribute: Live Long & Pawsper

Today's TV Trip Encore is dedicated to Leonard Nimoy, a.k.a. Spock.
In our hearts you will always Live Long and Pawsper.
Rest in peace.

WAFFLES:  Make it GO, Boss! Make it GO!

KATIE:  SO, Waffles. The line is, "Make it SO."

WAFFLES:  SO... Make it GO!

KATIE:  Waffles, even if you COULD get the line right, you're hardly a Captain Picard. 

WAFFLES:  Awe, c'mon Boss! You ALWAYS get to be the captain and stuff. Remember Gilligan's Island? And the Love Boat? Why can't be the captain? 

KATIE:  Waffles???

WAFFLES:  Isn't this show called Cat Trek: The NEXT Generation? Aren't I the NEXT Generation?

KATIE:  Waffles, that's what scares me. Young cats today... you have no idea what it was like before Hulu and Netflix. 

WAFFLES:  You mean like when there were dinosaurs no one had iPads and stuff? How did they watch their shows?

KATIE:  Just hurry up and pose for the title photo.

WAFFLES:  Only if I can be the captain. So, can I be the captain?

KATIE:  This is highly illogical. But fine, be the captain already.

TMZzzz Exclusive: WaffKat Kiss - The REAL Story

TMZzzz Reporter:  So Katie, we all want to hear your side of the story on the now famous KISS photo. Is it true you were locking lips with an orange cat barely 1/4 your age?

KATIE:  That was NO kiss. I wouldn't lock lips with that cat if he was holding the last chicken drumstick on earth.

TMZzzz Reporter:  Katie, I've just been told we have a close up of the photograph in question. The way I see it, you appear to be gazing into the eyes of another cat with your lips softly parted. It's hard to tell, but... do I see tongue??? How do you explain this?

KATIE:  The press has blown this WAY out of proportion. It's a bad camera angle, I'm telling you. A VERY bad camera angle. 

TMZzzz Reporter:  I don't know, Katie. Viewers aren't buying it. Okay, we've got Waffles on the line. Welcome Waffles. So tell us, what happened?

WAFFLES:  I was just minding my own bizness and stuff and out of nowhere the Boss came over and planted a big wet one on me, I swear it.

TMZzzz Reporter:  Waffles, did you do anything to provoke this unexpected display of ... would you call it affection? 

WAFFLES:  No, the Boss doesn't have an infection. And I didn't catch anything from her either. Except for the catnip dental treat she was eating.

TMZzzz Reporter:  Do you mean to say you stole a catnip dental treat right out of her mouth???

WAFFLES:  Well yeah, it's #CatDentalHealth month, duh.

Reporters are camped out at the Townhouse as we continue to follow the WaffKat KISS story. Stay tuned to TMZzzz for more breaking–

TMZzzz Satellite Reporter:  Hey, can someone please pass the kibble? My satellite dish is empty.

National Cat Enquirer Exclusive: THE KISS

Minneapolis, MN
February 26, 2015

Shock waves out of Minnesota today. Two rival cats caught on camera in what can only be described as the ultimate in compromising positions. The lip-locking felines have been identified as Katie & Waffles of the GLOGIRLY cat blog.

The anonymous photographer behind the salacious shot is rumored to have sold exclusive rights to the photo for a figure in excess of elebenty billion dollars. 

Katie, pictured right, argues the "misleading and horrifying snapshot" was a result of some mad Photoshop skills, however the authenticity of the image has been confirmed and the photograph deemed untouched. Katie now claims the viral photo is "nothing more than a bad camera angle." 

A VERY bad angle indeed.

Waffles, the orange tabby with his back to the camera, has wasted no time vigorously sharing the KISS photo on social media. Meanwhile leagues of women and clowders of female cats are heartbroken and in shock. 

L-R: Princess Floofenfluff, Chris, Pancake, Tutu

"NOOOO, say it isn't so, Waffles!" -Princess Floofenfluff, Lubbock, TX

"I thought was his girlfriend!" -Chris, Kansas City, MO

"YOU TWO-TIMING #%&*@!!" -Pancake, Savannah, GA

"But, but what was all that one in elebenty billion talk???"-Tutu, Fargo, ND

The contemptuous rivalry between Katie and Waffles is no secret to fans of their blog. According to legal experts, a single picture like this, exposing the two cats in such a damaging way, could not only permanently tarnish their reputations but take down the entire GLOGIRLY empire with a single swipe of the paw.

Waffles Wednesday: #CatDentalHealth Never Tasted SO Good!

This post is sponsored by PetSmart, and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. We are being compensated for helping spread the word about Dental Health Month, but GLOGIRLY only shares information we feel is relevant to our friends and readers. PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.
WAFFLES:  Uh, Glogirly? So since we're here at PetSmart® and all, don't you think it would be a good idea to pick up some CHICKEN treats???

WAFFLES:  Just a few hundred bags should be good.

WAFFLES:   Maybe we can get a bag for the Boss too. Something to make up for me borrowing her breakfast.

Taking Care of our Pearly Whites is About Much More than a Pretty Smile
Did you know that February is Cat Dental Health Month? We're teaming up with PetSmart to help raise awareness and shed some light on how important it is to take care of our teeth and gums. It's easy to overlook dental health and what many people unfortunately don't realize is that dental disease can affect much more than just our teeth. 

Poor dental hygiene can quickly cause plaque and tarter buildup, even gingivitis. And left untreated, these things can eventually lead to very serious conditions damaging our kidneys, livers and hearts. In fact, oral health problems are among the most common of health problems diagnosed in adult pets.

Dental Health Never Tasted So Good!
FELINE GREENIES® Dental Treats are the only cat treat to have The Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal of Acceptance for tartar reduction. What that seal of acceptance doesn't tell you though is how DELICIOUS these little nuggets are.

At only 1.25 calories each, it's easy to make them a regular at treat time. They're all natural with no artificial flavors or preservatives. Added vitamins, minerals, taurine and chlorophyll make them a healthy treat time choice too.

KATIE:  They come in six tasty flavors. I must say the catnip treats are DIVINE. And yes, as a matter of fact, I am even standing on my tippy toes.

Catnip for Katie. Chicken for Waffles.

It's Not ALL About the Treats Though...
Glogirly has recently started brushing our teeth. It's not easy, but sticking to a regular schedule, like 3-4 times per week, is important to maintaining optimum dental health. It will become become much easier with time, though will probably never be as fun as our dental treats. 

According to our own vet, the most important part of brushing is the contact with the teeth and gums. There are special pet toothbrushes, finger brushes, there's even poultry flavored toothpaste made just for cats. We've tried all of these things, but believe it or not what works best for us is a little trick our vet taught us. 

Yes, pantyhose. Glogirly just takes a small piece of cut-up pantyhose, wraps it around her index finger and gently rubs our teeth and gums. There's just enough abrasion from the nylon to do the trick. Of course entry into our mouths requires great bravery on her part, as well as a fistful of treats.

TIP! For the first few times, Glogirly added a little bit of wet cat food to her finger.

So tell us, do you brush your cat's teeth?

How Can Two Cats with SO Much in Common be SO Different?

KATIE:  Nature vs. nurture has always fascinated us. Just like Waffles and me, Glogirly was adopted when she was a baby. So to say she's spent a little bit of time pondering how we are who we are is an understatement.

She's quick to admit that her adoptive parents had more influence on who she is as an adult than anyone else in her life. She's always believed that nurture, more often than not, supersedes nature.

And then came–


KATIE:  Yes, Waffles. And them came you.

So Similar, So Different...

Environment? Same. Same. Same.
  1. Born in Minnesota.
  2. Adopted from a shelter as kittens.
  3. Grew up and live in the Townhouse with Glogiry & Gloman.
  4. Cared for by the same cat sitter when the GloFamily is away.
  5. Cared for by the same vet.
  6. Ate (mostly) the same food.
  7. Enjoyed the same treats.
  8. Used the same litter. (Even the same BOX on occasion *gasp!*)

Personality? Night & Day

K:  Quiet and reserved with sweet little meow-chirps.
W:  Loud and in-your-face with epic meow-songs.

K:  No thank you.
W:  Yes please.

K:  Slow, careful, dainty eater.
W:  Fast, messy food thief.

K:  Not interested.
W:  Cautious at first, then flirt flirt flirt.

K:  Sleeps on it during the day.
W:  Sleeps on it at night.

K:  Ground dweller. Loves to burrow.
W:  Tree dweller. Would walk on the ceiling if he could.

K:   Loves to carry toys in her mouth and bat them across the hardwood floors.
W:  Loves wand toys, lasers and jumping.

K:  Sits next to Glogirly while she's writing blog posts at night.
W:  Sits next to Glogirly while she's writing blog posts during the day.

K:   Elegant, quiet, sweet, sarcastic, independent
W:  Goofy, loud, loving, playful, needy

Black & White & Orange All Over
KATIE:  Some say a cat's coat color is linked to personality. Friend and fellow cat writer Ingrid King  of The Conscious Cat wrote a fascinating article about this for Gingers are often thought to be affectionate but can also have a little bit of a temper. (Does crazy count as temper???)  Black and white cats can be more even-tempered and placid. 

On the flip side, we know of another orange/black & white duo, Hemingway and Shakespeare from Two Cats' Views, who are our polar opposites. Hemingway is the tuxedo and has a personality just like Waffles. Shakespeare, the orange boy, is much more like me - reserved and well mannered. Proof that no matter what, we are ALL mysterious. 

Love is What Really Matters
KATIE:  We may have different personalities, different voices and different routines, but one thing we DO have in common is the love of our girl and her guy. Both of us have very special, albeit different, relationships with Glogirly and Gloman. And we wouldn't trade those for all the catnip and chicken in the world.

WAFFLES:  Did you say ALL the chicken???

What do YOU think about nature vs. nurture? How about coat color?
Do you have a theory, or are we a complete mystery?

Whole Food & Cheetos - An Update From Katie

WAFFLES:  Uh, Boss? I have a question.

KATIE:  Ok, I'm almost afraid to ask...

WAFFLES:  So you know how Glogirly has been changing our menus, right?

KATIE:  Yes, Waffles. She's been transitioning us from canned food to whole food.

WAFFLES:  So this whole food... does that mean I get a WHOLE chicken?  Because if it does, I'm getting ripped off. There's no WAY she's been giving me a whole chicken everyday. I think I should complain. Maybe write a letter.

KATIE:  Waffles, you're not supposed to get a whole chicken everyday. That would be crazy. The whole food we're eating is called whole food because it's unprocessed real food.

WAFFLES:  You mean we've been eating FAKE food all this time???

KATIE:  No, Waffles. Our whole food is more like what Glogirly buys at the grocery store for her and Gloman.

WAFFLES:  Oh, you mean like Cheetos and stuff.

KATIE:  Not exactly. We're eating food that's made right here in town at a small independent pet food deli. They understand that cats are obligate carnivores and need protein, not Cheetos. The food we get actually is the whole animal. Everything is ground up, including the muscle meat, organs and bones. It looks sort of like ground beef from the grocery store, but it has all the nutrients and protein we need. It's also much easier to digest because it's more like what we would eat in the wild and isn't heavily processed. That's key for a cat like me with IBD or sensitive digestive tracts.

WAFFLES:  So, no Cheetos?

KATIE:  No Cheetos, no grains, no carbs... nothing we don't need.

WAFFLES:  But what if I need Cheetos?

An Update From Katie
Thank you SO much for all of your thoughtful get-well comments, notes and cards. I'm feeling much, much better since I started being treated for IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disorder) just a few weeks ago. One of the most important things we've done is a complete change in diet.

Transitioning to a new diet, especially a dramatic change from canned or dry food to a whole food (cooked or raw) isn't easy. It's important to take things very, very slow. That's exactly what we're doing. Starting with just barely a teaspoon of new food mixed in with the old food and then gradually increasing the amount of new and decreasing the amount of old.

Waffles has joined me in the menu change because, even though he doesn't have any health problems, this diet is healthier for both of us.

The food we're eating is available both cooked and raw. Lots of variety too - quail, rabbit, lamb, pork, pheasant, chicken, duck, deer and more. Waffles is up to eating half/half, raw with his old canned food. I haven't quite taken to the raw yet, so I'm eating the cooked. Yesterday was a milestone - I ate nothing but the new cooked whole food. I'll eat this for a couple of weeks or so and then Glogirly will start to mix in just a tiny bit of raw. Ultimately, she would like to see how we both do on a completely raw diet. But even if I don't transition to raw, the whole cooked food will likely have a very positive effect on my digestive and overall health.

Remember, We're Just Cats
We're not experts. We're not nutritionists. We're not vets. Our only specialty is taking funny pictures, making people laugh and putting Photoshopped wigs on cats. Our intent is not to become your source for something as serious as nutrition. We just thought you'd like to know how I'm doing and what's working for me.

If you're interested in learning more about what we're eating and where we're getting it, you can visit Woody's Pet Food Deli.

This is not a review, not a sponsored post...Woody's doesn't even know we have a blog. Yet.

#SundaySelfies - Understanding Waffles

KATIE:  Wait, you're asking me to move AWAY from you??? The cat who stalks me even in my sleep is asking me to STEP AWAY???

WAFFLES:  Well yeah, you're kind of photobombing me. It's sort of ruining my Sunday Selfie.

KATIE:  Waffles, I will never understand you.

WAFFLES:  *incoherant chortling* 


 Saturday TV Spoof!

Yes, there are wigs involved.

TV Trip: Glogirly's Angels

GLOGIRLY:  Once upon a time there were two very different little kittens who grew up to be two very different little cats with only two things in common: They're cats and they both look good with their wigs parted in the center. Oh and one more thing... they work for me. My name is Glogirly.

WAFFLES:  Boss! This box is talking!!

KATIE:  Well? What did it say?

WAFFLES:  It said 'hello,' I think. 

KATIE:  So, did you say 'hello' back?


KATIE:  Why not?

WAFFLES:  Hello... it's a box. And I'm not supposed to talk to strange boxes.

KATIE:  That's no strange box, that's Glogirly.

WAFFLES:  GLOGIRLY??? What's she doing in there? How'd she–  Is she stuck? Do we need to help her? What if she can't get out? What if she can't make our dinner??? How will we open the WAND TOY CABINET???

GLOGIRLY:  Waffles, you sure ask a lot of questions. 

Katie, Wafffles... your mission is to identify who's behind the late night kitchen explosions. One, or possibly a group of perpetrators, is opening all the kitchen cupboard doors in the middle of the night and scattering the contents throughout the townhouse. You'll each be going undercover for this operation.

WAFFLES:  Undercovers??? I LOVE under covers!

GLOGIRLY:  Katie, you're Kitty Copperfield, a feline magician and star of your own Vegas stage show. You'll need stakeout the food cupboard by slipping inside, undetected. It's our belief that the perpetrator or perpetrators will strike again tonight. Be careful, Katie. This is an extremely dangerous operation. 

KATIE:  Got it. I'm on it.

WAFFLES:  What do I do???

GLOGIRLY:  Waffles, you're going DEEP undercover. So deep in fact, your identity and the details of your operation are highly confidential. Just act natural. Do what you do every night.

KATIE:  Inside voice, Waffles. Inside voice!
