WAFFLES: Hey Boss! What's so funny? Why's Glogirly giggling?
KATIE: She must have her iPhone out again. Haven't you noticed her trying to get us on video every morning for the last six months? She thinks we're playing patty cake or something.
WAFFLES: Patty cake? Does Patty taste like –
KATIE: Not that kind of cake, Waffles. C'mon. Let's give her the video she wants. Trust me, going forward it will really speed up breakfast service around here.

About Today's Video
Glogirly has been trying for MONTHS to get this video. What you're watching is our pre-breakfast dance number. Every morning when Glogirly comes down to the kitchen, Waffles and Katie start their patty cake dance while they wait for their meal service.
It used to be a very heated *dance* with extremely spirited vocalizations. A hiss and a growl were not uncommon. Flattened ears could be seen on both sides. But one day that all changed. All of a sudden these morning tussles turned into something that actually resembled play. Could it be? Could two rival cats actually keep their claws retracted and join in a playful game of patty cake?
For the past few months, Glogirly has brought her iPhone down to the kitchen with her in hopes of capturing the patty cake dance on video. And every morning when she's aimed the phone at Katie and Waffles, they've immediately stopped what they were doing. Paws down and frozen in their tracks. Until today. Glogirly was a silent as a mouse, turned the volume down on her phone and held her breath. SUCCESS!!!
We hope you enjoy the video! It takes only 48 seconds to watch, but took over 6 months to make.
Silly Katie and Waffles. Soon they'll be licking one another - or do they?ReplyDelete
Real cute video!ReplyDelete
Katie is DEFINITELY in charge there!!!!! Well done that videographer!!!ReplyDelete
Oh my Ceiling Cat, that's an award winner!ReplyDelete
Awesome! Binga and Sparkle used to do that in the morning - that's how my human was able to put together the boxing match video a few years ago. When I came to live here, Binga tried doing that to me and I had NO idea what she was up to! Eventually I caught on, so now we do that before breakfast pretty often... except with us, it is definitely playing. With Sparkle, you could never be too sure.ReplyDelete
What a great video and we started the day with a smile on our faces. Just brilliant.ReplyDelete
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Too funny!!! We ditto Hannah and Lucy's comment!!!ReplyDelete
What an adorable video!!! They really are enjoying themselves!!ReplyDelete
The Florida Furkids
Adorable! Pierre and Newton do that sometimes. Ashton just whacks the offender with a left hook and carries on with whatever she's doing. That left hook is the holy grail of photos around here, too.ReplyDelete
Love those white paws... And glad to see there's no orange fur flying!ReplyDelete
We love how Katie and Waffles dance. ;)ReplyDelete
Now that's too funny. For several months Mr. Chivers used to paw Samantha's head while mom was serving breakfast. Felines are fabulously funny. Now I (Greyson) on the other hand calmly wait because mom always gives me 2-3 treats while the others are eating. MOLReplyDelete
On my cat! ! That is great. I love it. They are so gentle now too. Hats off to Glogirly for her patienceReplyDelete
Glogirly, that was worth the wait!ReplyDelete
MOL! Looks like you two are play fighting, and it made the Mom laugh. She thinks it's "cute" the way Waffles gently smacks Katie's head.ReplyDelete
Look at that floor down to the sub floor. Is the other floor already in and new or is it what wasn't damaged? Cause if it's new--wow! You are close to having everything done! YEAH!ReplyDelete
LOL! Tucker and Sadie used to have what I called their "dinner dance." Sadie would rub against Tucker's face and body, and he would get irritated and meow and/or hiss. Repeat, repeat. Unfortunately, since Tucker's been gone, she no longer does it with anyone else.ReplyDelete
Why do kitties do that?! I tried and tried yesterday to get a pic of Samantha and every time I had the iPad up she would look away. IPad down, she looks at me, iPad up at her, she looks away. And so on and so on. Glogirly gets it!ReplyDelete
Katie is starting to have fun with you Waffles! That's great!
That's adorable! I sure wish we could know what they are thinking.ReplyDelete
Great video ! It made us smile ! PurrsReplyDelete
Pawesome! You guys are too cute stopping like that.ReplyDelete
Pawesome! You guys are too cute stopping like that.ReplyDelete
Dance, cats, dance! *G* Thank you for not giving up, Glogirly. This was definitely worth it.ReplyDelete
Katie I think you gave left AND right jabs at the same time. YOU definitely win paws down. MOLReplyDelete
I know you are so glad you caught this on video!
We do that to mom all the time when she gets the camera out. Glogirly is very lucky she finally got this great video of you two!ReplyDelete
Congrats to your mom for finally getting your dance on video! Our mom can completely relate when trying to get our artsy brother Quint on film while painting. Just.Won't.Cooperate!ReplyDelete
It was worth the wait and all the effort! That video is great!ReplyDelete
It's so nice to see the two of you having fun together!ReplyDelete
Great video! Definitely worth the time :) I'm glad to see these two playing together. I guess, if you can't beat 'em, play Patty Cake with 'em. MOLReplyDelete

Looks more like sparring leading up to a fight to me. Derby and I used to do that, then we would wrassle each other good.ReplyDelete

Before breakfast and lunch, Mauricio and Calista Jo start with smacky paws, which escalates to neck biting and then all out knock down wrestling. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
