She identified with Piglet's quiet and shy nature. He seemed something of an underdog, but with Pooh by his side anything was possible. They shared a love and friendship that resonates in her heart today.
In fact, it's Piglet's untainted innocence that in many ways inspires how she writes Waffles' voice.
Probably her favorite Pooh-Piglet conversation goes something like this -
Piglet sidled up to
Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Nothing," said Piglet.
"I just wanted
to be sure of you."
Someday, she hopes to imagine Waffles and Katie sharing that same exchange.
