Katie and Waffles Holding Paws - #FridayFlashback Shocker

WAFFLES:  So Boss. We've been together now for about elebenty seven years.

KATIE:  Actually, it's been 3 years, 8 months, 13 days, 6 hours and 11 minutes. But who's counting?

WAFFLES:  That's what I said. Elebenty seven years.

KATIE:  Fine. Elebenty whatever. So just how long are you planning on keeping your paw there? Because for the record, mine was here first and yours is encroaching.

WAFFLES:  But when a boy cat and a girl cat go out for elebenty seven years –


WAFFLES:  Yeah, Boss. You know. Like going study and stuff.

KATIE:  You mean going 'steady'? We are NOT going steady, Waffles. Nevermind all the obvious reasons I'd never go steady with you... I'm old enough to be your–

WAFFLES:  Grandmother?

KATIE:  Wow, didn't see that one coming.

About Today's SHOCKING Flashback Photos
You should have heard Glogirly squealing when she took these photos last year.

Katie and Waffles HOLDING HANDS??? 

Call CNN!
Call Entertainment Tonight!
Call Jackson Galaxy!

Waffles has always been (and still is) fascinated with Katie. Unless he's sleeping very soundly, he's constantly aware of her every move. If she's laying in the sun, he'll get as close as he can and do the same. If she's playing with a toy, he sits fixated, waiting for just the right moment to engage. On the one hand, he's like a pesky little brother, horning in on her space and her fun. But there are many times he actually shows incredible restraint, watching intently but letting Katie have her space and her fun.

Today's photos are some of Glogirly's all time favorites. She remembers this moment like it was yesterday. Waffles slowly walked up to Katie while she was lounging by the window. He gingerly sat down at the edge of her pillow and started meowing. Long, extended meows. Louder and louder. Slowly he reached out with his right paw towards her. He carefully set it down on top of her paw and then slowly shifted it so it rested next to hers on the pillow.

And then came the stare down.

This was one of those moments Glogirly would pay just about any amount of money to be able to read their minds.

And in case you're wondering...
These are actual, untouched photographs. NO photoshop trickery was used. For real.


  1. K: "Waffles ... you're touching me."
    K: "WafFLES ... you're TOUCHING me!"
    W: "Then move your paw."
    K: "WHAT?!?! My paw was there first! MOM! WAFFLES IS TOUCHING ME!!!"
    W: "Can you share the pillow?"

  2. I think Waffles wanted the cushion. That's what I think

  3. It looks like that staredown lasted for quite a while!

  4. So sweet, but that was quite the stare down.

  5. He's touching me! Eeeww! Waffles cooties!!!!

    For the record, I'll gladly take one for the team and handle any Waffles cooties that need handling. Just sayin'.

  6. Squeeeeeee!!!! Wished they could speak too.....

  7. That is soooooooooooo cute and funny. Maybe Waffles is in love! he he

  8. we believe Katie is thinking "drop dead orange menace" MOL old enough to be his grandmother....ouch

  9. I wonder what the meowing was all about. The rest of it I understand.. but the warning that I'm about to touch you? weird. Waff has never displaced Katie from a favorite sleeping spot has he?

    1. Only a couple of times over the years that I can think of, but yes, he has approached Katie and bothered her to the point where she got up and left. And then he took her spot on the bed or lounger. Usually there's a stare down and Waffles retreats. We wish we knew what the meowing was about. He's clearly trying to say something to her.

  10. What a sweet moment caught on camera. I can guarantee that if that happened here it would have ended with someone getting swatted!

  11. Old enough to be Waffles' grandmother, MOL ! Sweet photos. Purrs
