WAFFLES: Uh, that Easter's over?
KATIE: *sigh* See all those stacks of paper down there on the dining room table? The rug, the sofa, the floor, the–
WAFFLES: COOL! It's like a paper playground! Did Glogirly & Gloman do this all for US???
KATIE: No, it's for the IRS. Tax time.
WAFFLES: We have to pay TAXES??? Like with REAL money???
KATIE: I hope you've been saving your allowance. You know all those free treats and toys you get?
KATIE: Sorry Waffles, handsome and fun doesn't pay the taxes.
WAFFLES: What about a deduction? Surely handsome must get me something.
About Today's Photos
Today's photos were taken just this weekend. Since the tax preparation areas of the house are pretty much off-limits for curious cats, Katie & Waffles have had to make their own fun on the Townhouse stairs. Our two full flights make for a pretty cool alternative playground... and in the case of Waffles, a great place to get his daily cardio in.
Welcome to the funny & furry world of Waffles, Ellie, and their girl.

Gah! Taxes. I had pages and pages and pages from some place called Glogirly. HmmmmmReplyDelete
My human did her taxes in February! She had to because she had to file the kind of return that is due in March. So her's have already been handed in and she is lucky because she did not have to pay the piper. She may not be so lucky next year!ReplyDelete
Run through all da papers - it'll be fun!ReplyDelete
The mom of Mum's godchild has a small trust company. Mum gives her all the papers, they chat for two hours, and it's done ! Good luck to Glogirly ! PurrsReplyDelete
Handsome does get you big kisses and cuddles Waffles!!! But the tax man doesn't go for that.ReplyDelete
Oh, we hope it goes well fur the Glopeeps. Our mommy has been hyperventilating some .....ReplyDelete
Oh, I feel your pain, kitties! The Staff has been doing tax stuff for a relative and she thinks someone might end up in jug if she's not very careful!!ReplyDelete
Katie' you are looking adorable in that picture. Good try girl on trying to help. waffles "get it" but sometimes we all fail! He he. To glogirly,...your cats have the most expressive facial features and you are so good at snapping the shot at just the right time.ReplyDelete
Ugh. Thank cod our peeps took care of those taxes things awhile back. Stay out of their way when they work on those things.ReplyDelete
Well so long as you have fun. Ours are done! And nothing on the floor. But the Woman takes them to an accountant.ReplyDelete
The Lady heard that pet parents may get to deduct vet bills some day! I hope that doesn't mean more trips to the vet. We have been absent a lot too due to those taxes but thankfully they are done. Good luck! Love DollyReplyDelete
Tax prep sounds pretty mean! Luckily I'm just a boring employee so don't have to do one but I cant imagine it is fun.ReplyDelete
Katie is so cute looking and Waffles is a total hunk in these pics but I can just imagine the carnage they could create with paperwork!
Beautiful pictures today. I especially like Katie's cute markings. Good luck finishing up glopeep taxes soon!ReplyDelete
We only have one flight of stairs, but it turns a 180, so it is fun for ups and downs!!!ReplyDelete
Taxes....meh. Glad Waffles is having fun on the stairs, though.ReplyDelete
Oh Katie..MOL..you are so good at getting that boy flustered..ReplyDelete
Love the photo of Katie on the steps. Waffles never takes a bad photo!!!ReplyDelete
I did my taxes in February because I prefer to have that hassle over, done with, and out of the way.ReplyDelete
The IRS might not come after cats for taxes, but I regularly hit my cats up for "Kitty Rent", in the form of cuddles and pets. I got the idea from a woman I used to know and was only too happy to inflict--er, put it into practice. Considering how much I shell out for food and toys and vet bills, they don't pay their share of the rent, they leave messes on the carpets and floors for me to clean up, and they just sit around all day and sleep. Never make any effort to find gainful employment so they can contribute to the household! They're furry mooches. "Kitty Rent" is a way they can start paying off their bill. ;D
We have a professional do that for us. Still lots of papers laying around in preparation, but much less aggravation!!!ReplyDelete
We thinks Waffles and Katie have the best idea. Mom bean says good luck with the paperwork!ReplyDelete
Sasha, Sami, & Saku
We got through the piles of paper for taxes in February, so we sympathize. The humans are much less fun while they are messing around with those things.ReplyDelete
WE boyz totally vote for a Paper Playground. Where do we sign up??ReplyDelete
With all the work you are doing you are probably paying. Say goodbye to your chickenReplyDelete
Lily & Edward
Be glad the humans have to do the taxing stuff. Just do your zoomies on the stairs.ReplyDelete
We don't like taxes either. They even tax our food and treats up here.ReplyDelete
Taxes...ugh! Mommy and Daddy have been griping about taxes for the past few months, because they have to file Grammy's taxes from the past few years as well as her last one (for this past year). That means the door opens to that room, papers come out, but we don't get to sneak in! We want to go investigate Grammy's old room, but they say maybe later on. Then they take the papers to a lady who does their taxes for them. She does that for Grandma & Grandpa, too, and our uncle. Thank cod we don't have to pay them! Oh, and stairs make GREAT playgrounds!!!ReplyDelete
TW and Pop sent all their papers off to Uncle Kevin. Hopefully he’ll send them good news soon.ReplyDelete
Wow you guys sure are cutting it close! We did ours in February like Summer did, but then again....we don't make the big bucks! (wink) xoxoReplyDelete
Do you two like to see who is faster on the stairs, you or your humans? Or how about the sprawl across the entire stair so your humans have to hurdle you...do you do that one? Two of our very favorite games. MOL. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
