Cat and Butterfly

Cat and butterfly,  ♫♩
Up in the air we like to fly!  ♫♩
Cat and butter–

KATIE:  Waffles, you may like to fly high, but I'm keeping my paws firmly on the ground. Besides, the song is, "DOG and Butterfly."

WAFFLES:  Well that's not right. Everyone knows dogs don't fly.

KATIE:  Yeah well, cats don't either. 

WAFFLES:  That's not true, Boss. 
I believe I can fly. ♫♩
I believe I can touch the sky. ♫♩

KATIE:  Waffles, enough with the ear worms already. 

WAFFLES:  I can fly from my cat tree to the way-up-high window! Want to see?

KATIE:  You mean the window above our drinking fountain? That didn't work out too well for you the other day.


KATIE:  Yeah, I don't think you've got enough wind beneath those wings of yours.

WAFFLES:  But Boss, I thought you were the wind beneath my wings.

About Today's Photos
Yesterday the butterfly wings we've been anxious to model came out. Glogirly thought they they'd make the perfect Halloween costume because they can be not so easily attached to our favorite harnesses. So it's really like not wearing a costume at all, right?

TIP: Make sure the wings are attached BEFORE you put the harness on. 

Once we were over the hump of securing the wings to the back of the harness, Waffles didn't seem to mind them at all. Maybe it was the bag of treats Glogirly had clenched in her hand, or maybe it was the bug staring at him through the window– he forgot all about his wings. (That first photo of Waffles shows him chattering at his new bug friend.)

Katie? Well she's always been more of a ground dweller than a tree dweller. And it became pretty clear she's not a fan of the wings. Just like real butterflies, so beautiful for those fleeting seconds you can see and enjoy them, they lasted about 60 fleeting seconds on Katie.

  1. I LOVE the second photo of Waffles. The look on his face is priceless

  2. I have some pink wings but my human hasn't figured out how to fasten them to the harness! It doesn't matter - I can fly without them... and I bet Waffles can too!

  3. Ya know what else has wings Waffles??? Chikken. Just sayin.

  4. You both make beautiful butterflies, but we are with Katie, wings belong on birds and bugs not cats.

  5. Waffles buddy, you are in great voice today. Sounding great. Love lyourcostume Katie and waffles. It is just perfect.

  6. Those orange wings are kind of perfect for you, Waffles,especially because you know more flying-related earworms than any other cat we know.

  7. Waffles makes a gorgeous butterfly! I believe he can fly.

  8. What a great singer you are Waffles. And those orange wings are gorgeous on both you and Katie. We love em! They look like super power flying wings. It was great to wake-up to you guys this morning. Have a Great Monday everyone! Purrs, Greyson, Mr. Chivers, Tabitha and Chloe

  9. Mom is impressed you got the wings on Katie at all. Waffles, you are cute butterfly but more handsome as cat.

    And you picked one of Mom's favorite songs.... Dog (sorry Waffles) & Butterfly is even her ringtone on her phone.

  10. somehow we don't see much flight in anyone's futures :)

  11. Yeah, we would rather play with butterflies than be one. Though those wings look really cool!

  12. absolutely LOVE the costume and the photos...AND..."Dog and Butterfly" has always been one of my favorite songs. I just love it!

  13. Oh great idea. We think that the skeleton cat is better for dressing up in anything that any of us!

  14. What a neat idea! Waffles rocks the wings!

  15. Those aren't such bad earworms to have for a Monday! Now about those wings--(suddenly taken over by ten black cats who wish their human had never seen them!)

  16. These butterfly wings are a great idea for Halloween. Love how Katie and Waffles look - they are true professional cat models :)

  21. Looks good. Hmmm...the groomer put bows around my sister Tuvia's ears. They didn't last very long. A few seconds then the stern look of disgust...

  22. You both look sweet in your wings, even if they didn't last long Katie! Waffles, you must be one of the most laid back cats efur!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  23. Oh My two look so adorable...

  24. Those two are just too cute! Katie is too dignified to tolerate being dressed up in any costume. Waffles on the other hand is clueless as usual and the treats didn't hurt any. The photos are wonderful as is the story. I think most cats are like Katie and reject the whole concept of cats wearing costumes of any kind. We would love to see Waffles flying through the air in his wings & singing that song.

  25. You two are the most adorable catterflies we have ever seen. Such precious kitties in adorable photos. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
