Waffles & His Chicken Hat #WafflesWednesday

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! How do you like my new chicken hat? 

KATIE:  Waffles, that's a pirate's hat.

WAFFLES:  I didn't know pirates ate chicken. No wonder they're so awesome.

KATIE:  Waffles, that's not a chicken on your hat. It's a parrot. And he's not your lunch.

WAFFLES:  Is he my dinner?

KATIE:  You can't eat a parrot, Waffles. He's supposed to be your friend.

WAFFLES:  Oh, so we can hang out and talk about girls and music and stuff.

KATIE:  Oh no–

Somewhere, beyond the sea
Somewhere, waiting for me

My chicken stands on golden sands
And watches for cats that go sail in'

About Today's Photos
A few weeks ago we received an email from a PR person with Martha Stewart Pets. She offered to send Waffles a Halloween costume for him to try on. When the package arrived, it was pretty clear it was not designed with cats in mind. Waffles is an adventurous feline when it comes to fashion. But even he has to draw the line at a full bodysuit.

Katie & Waffles: M-W-F 
Monday we announced a little change in our publishing schedule. We look forward to bringing you lots of giggles and funny conversations between Katie & Waffles every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We'll still be sharing our favorite cat products, hosting cool giveaways and helping shelter cats.

If you aren't already an email subscriber to our blog, this is a perfect time to sign up so you never miss a beat with Katie & Waffles. Our emails go out in the wee hours of the morning each day we post. That way when you wake up you've got a smile to go with your morning coffee. Or tea. Or milk. Or diet coke.

See you on Friday! 


Yesterday we attempted to make a little joke by publishing a "404" post. If you've ever clicked to a website and gotten a 404 error message, you probably know what we're talking about. It means that the page you were looking for is no longer there. In other words, if it's not a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, Katie & Waffles aren't really here. Ok, so they were here. But we were just pretending.

Rumor has it, we'll be pretending again tomorrow with another reminder about our new posting schedule. So when you get your morning email from us, just remember we're here, but not really here. Really.

Clear as mud?


  1. All dis chikken talk are makin me hungry!

  2. Hey, we didn't get that email! She used to send us emails but haven't gotten one for a while. Maybe it's just as well - my pirate costume from last year (that my human bought at the store) was better than this one - and it was made for a kitty! I still need it for a costume party this Halloween, but if Waffles wants to borrow it at some point, he is welcome to it. Although I think it is a GIRL pirate costume. Not that that ever stopped Waffles.

  3. If you're not really here are you there? If you are not 404 maybe you are 406 and then you are here not there. I think I need some sleep.

  4. Waffles rocks that hat. Very colorful chickie ....

  5. Waffles, we wouldn't have gone for the hat or the body suit! But we woulda gone for the parrot. ;)

  6. Yay waffles, you got to keep Wednesday, waffles day after all. He he that is a funny looking chicken!

  7. Waffles, you make a great pirate- does that make Katie your wench? MOL!

  8. You look pretty cute in that hat Waffles.

  9. Parrots are wild cousins of chickens, isn't it, Waffles ? Purrs

  10. Waff looks cute in his hat! PS: It's amazing how many things are technically for cats, but are really poorly designed.

  11. It is a cute hat. I bet our skeleton cat would wear that suit--after all that's why he's here-so he can dress up and we don't have to!

  12. It bet he would taste like chick-hen, Waffles. MOL!

  13. Thanks very much for explaining the 404 - I *shakes head* didn't understand

  14. MOL! Oh OMC, you look awesome in that hat. You might just attract some chicks with it on. What a funny costume for a kitty. We draw the line on full body suits as well. You sport that hat much better than the dog. BTW, our humom didn't get the "404" thing either. Glad you explained it. Sometimes she's a little slow in the am. MOL. Purrs

  15. I totally understood the 404 and giggled.. so apparently you are really committed to this new schedule.. ;)

    My cats have done full body suits, but I haven't done it in so long that they tend to have clothing paralysis when I try it now

  16. I wonder why the Martha elves send a dog Waffles?

  17. Verlcro works best for costumes but many have to be fitted over the legs and head and none of us - cats or dogs - go for that! So we don't blame Waffles. But good post with half a costume. :)

  18. Trust DO NOT want to eat that bird!
    I tried to eat a bird like that once. The key word here being ONCE.
    Happy Wednesday...

    Noodle and crew

  19. Waffles didn't need the shirt - he has his own stripes

  20. OMC A full body suit? Even me won;t wear those. But me also dusn't like hats. So kkudos to Waffles fur wearin' da hat. MOL

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Lexi

  21. I'm reminded of a Seinfeld episode with the puffy shirt..."but I don't want to be a pirate..." yet Waffles, you look great in your hat. Who on EARTH would send a full body stocking for a cat? That's just crazy!

  22. Mum saw a guy last Friday with a parrot on his shoulder, mum doesn't think he was a pirate.

  23. Waffles, your friend the parrot looks, um, tasty! ;)

  24. Waffles, I'm so glad you have Katie to help you understand things! You do look super in your pirate hat.

  25. Thank goodness that's not a real parrot! Those fangs cold crunch right through! Ouch!

    Duh! 404 error! Now I get it and no I never saw that on my computer or I forget. I was wondering why you posted on Tuesday. I thought you were giving us an extra treat! But it was a trick. Get it?! Trick or treat?! Ok, let's move on to Waffles and Katie.

  26. At least Waffles got a ha-ha-hat out of it and you got a funny post.

  27. BODY SUIT? *backs slow-w-wly away*


Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
