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.
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.
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.
