Rocking the Lampshade #WafflesWednesday

WAFFLES:  Hey wait a minute! Where'd everybody go? Hellooooo?

KATIE (from across the room): Waffles, do you have your head up your lamp again?

WAFFLES:  Maybe I like having my head up my lamp.

About Today's Photos
The world is Waffles' playground. He's like a little kid. Unending curiosity, no fear and an imagination that can turn ordinary objects into the best toys ever. Ok... so Glogirly is hoping that lamp doesn't take a nose dive into the floor.

Cat Sitter In The House - Postcards from the Cats

Dear Glogirly,

It seems like just yesterday you were packing your suitcase and emailing the cat sitter. Ok, so maybe it was just yesterday.

But you're coming home today, right? Because you are very urgently needed.

Apparently the cat sitter doesn't understand that 8:00am is 8:00am. Not 8:01. Not 8:02. And certainly not 8:34. Don't get me started on the lunch and dinner schedule.

In addition, Waffles has decided that since there's new sheriff in town, it's open-season on my food dish.

Don't worry, I haven't withered away to nothing. Yet.

But I wouldn't dilly-dally if I were you.


Dear Glogirly,

The cat sitter and I have been having SO much fun. She's the best cat sitter EVER. We played beauty shop and she even let me do her hair. 

I've been helping the cat sitter a lot too. I lick all of the food bowls clean so she doesn't have to do the dishes. Even the Boss' dish is sparkling.

You're bringing me a present, right? Ok, bye.


About Today's Postcards

Glogirly and Gloman had a chance to scoot away for the weekend.

But for Katie and Waffles, that meant a weekend with the Cat Sitter, a.k.a one of Waffles' many girlfriends.

That line about Waffles doing her hair... totally true. At least according to a certain text that was sent yesterday.

Post Thanksgiving Trouble

KATIE:  Do you realize what she's done?

WAFFLES:  Is Glogirly in trouble, Boss?

KATIE:  Trouble is when your car breaks down or you can't find your catnip pickle where you left it. Glogirly FORGOT to publish our blog last night. FORGOT!!! 

For the first time since the beginning of time, she FORGOT! 

WAFFLES:  What do you mean you can't find the catnip pickle?

About Today's Photos
That's right, Glogirly was deep into a turkey coma by the time she dozed off last night. Truth be told, everyone in the Townhouse was snoozing. That means the turkey and pie were tasty and everyone had a wonderful day together at home. A perfect Thanksgiving. 

We hope your holiday was filled with plenty of delicious food and the people and kitties you love. Now back to your regularly scheduled Black Friday cyber shopping!

Where's the Turkey?

WAFFLES:  Happy Thanksgiving, Boss! So, where's the chicken? Where's the gravy?

KATIE:  It's turkey, Waffles. You're supposed to eat turkey on Thanksgiving.

WAFFLES:  Can't I have chicken though? Because I'm really thankful for chicken.

KATIE:  Well, I'm thankful for my peace and solitude. Yet, here you are.

WAFFLES:  Awww... thanks, Boss. I love you too.

KATIE:  I suppose you're ok too, Waffles. Just don't tell anybody. I'll deny every saying that.

Happy Thanksgiving from ALL of us!
As much as we love our turkey and gravy here at the Townhouse, it's our friends, family and readers that make Thanksgiving...well, Thanksgiving! Thank you for sharing your days with us. We have so much fun laughing and smiling with you.

Thank you for your fun and heartfelt comments.
Thank you for entering our giveaways.
Thank you for caring so much about us.

To say the feeling is mutual is an understatement. You mean the world to us.

Happy Thanksgiving to our beautiful extended blog-family. Happy Thanksgiving to YOU. ♥︎ 

Katie, Waffles, Glogirly & Gloman

What Do You Mean the Kitchen is Closed?

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! What are you having?

KATIE:  I'm having a hard time waiting for breakfast is what I'm having.

WAFFLES:  So where is everybody? The kitchen's supposed to be open, right?

KATIE:  It's already 8:01am. It's practically lunchtime.

WAFFLES:  Lunch? You get lunch? But I only get breakfast and dinner. LUNCH???

KATIE:  Well don't come crying to me. You need to take it up with management. 

About Today's Photos
The rumors are true. Katie gets lunch and Waffles doesn't.

As we've been managing some of Katie's health concerns and touchy digestive system, we've realized she does so much better with smaller and more frequent meals. Of course even though she's hasn't been getting any more food than Waffles, he wasn't buying it.

During the first few weeks of Katie's new food routine, Waffles stood vigil just outside the powder room door while she enjoyed her lunch on the other side. Oh, there was some yowling, an outstretched paw under the door and plenty of pacing back and forth. Glogirly even made sure he got a treat every time Katie got her lunch, but the protests continued. Until now. Apparently Waffles has come to the realization that he's either not getting any, he's not hungry, or his warm bed is just too comfy to get out of.  No matter the reason, life is much more peaceful at the noon hour for Katie and for Glogirly.

Tidy Cats Direct & Amazon Prime Membership Giveaway

WAFFLES:  It's here! It's here! Our new litterbox is here!

WAFFLES:  Boss, you'll never believe it! Our new litterbox is a real, live BOX! This is the best day EVER.

KATIE:  It's alive?

WAFFLES:  No, Boss. It's a BOX. 

KATIE:  Boy, nothing gets past you, Waffles. 

Direct to Our Doorstep & Disposable Too!
It was an exciting day for Waffles when the man in purple shorts delivered our new Tidy Cats Direct disposable litterboxes. You'd have thought he won the kittycat jackpot.

Open, Scoop, Toss & Repeat
It truly couldn't be easier. And convenient too.

Tidy Cats Direct is a self-contained disposable litterbox that arrives at your doorstep filled with litter and ready to use.

It's been years since Glogirly lugged litter home from the store. She's been buying litter online since before Waffles was Waffles.

But she still had to heave the big bags up the steps, dump out the old litter, clean the box, dump in the new litter, carry the old out to the garbage, being careful not to rip the bag (yes, it's happened more than once)... you get the picture.

Setting up the box is super simple. Just pull the tab.

Then gently tear open the flap. The box is perforated to make opening a breeze. And it doesn't rip where it's not supposed to either. Fold the flap back and you're ready to go.

And by go, we mean go. 

Waffles was in such a hurry to get inside the box, Glogirly didn't even have a chance to fold the flap and tuck it under the box. You'll notice the flap is scored in the middle - that's so it's easy to fold back and under. 

The Scoop

  • No cleaning is required, just scoop as you would any other litterbox.
  • The box comes prefilled with 30 days worth of litter. (That's for 1 cat.)
  • The bottom of the box has an anti-leak coating that actually works!
  • Once opened, the top folds back and tucks underneath the box. 
  • When you're ready to dispose of everything, just fold the top back over and toss. 

KATIE:  Seriously Waffles, Glogirly just opened this up and you're already digging to China. 

WAFFLES:  Maybe I want to go to China.

What on earth will Glogirly do with all this free time?
One of the most fun benefits of using Tidy Cats Direct is all time you'll save. Waffles and Katie have a few suggestions for Glogirly on how she should spend that time.

KATIE:  This means she'll have even MORE time to prepare our food. I'm seeing 3 squares a day plus snacks in my future. 

WAFFLES:  I'm seeing extra wand toy and red dot tournaments.

Olly Olly Oxen Cheese #WafflesWednesday

WAFFLES:  Ok, Boss. Are you ready?

Olly Olly Oxen Cheese! Come out, come out, wherever you are!


WAFFLES:  Ok my turn! 

WAFFLES:  I bet you'll never find me!



WAFFLES:  Olly Olly Oxen Cheese! Mmm... cheese.

WAFFLES:  So where's the cheese? 

About Today's Photos
Play is like Waffles' oxygen. Neither Glogirly or Gloman has ever known a cat to be so completely obsessed with playing. He tells them when it's time to get the red dot out. He decides when it's time for a game of fetch... about 5 times a day. And he will not be ignored.

He also loves making his own fun. From climbing the powder room door frame, to twirling down the steps and sprinting back up... he's the ultimate gamer. Hide and Seek is another one of his faves, both with and without Katie.

Katie's still got game. One of her favorites is crinkle ball floor hockey. And when she plays, Waffles is absolutely transfixed. Even a piece of chicken won't distract him.

Monday Monday, So Good to Be Waffles

Ear Worm Alert: Waffles and Katie are channeling The Mamas & The Papas today. We are not responsible for any uncontrollable humming or singing that may occur as a result of reading our post.  
WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Don't you just love Mondays?

KATIE:  Do I really have to answer that?

WAFFLES:  The sun is shining, the leaves are twirling on the patio ...

KATIE:  Great. You're going to sing, aren't you? How about we just skip to Tuesday?

WAFFLES:  MONDAY, MONDAY!  ♫ la-la, la-la-la-la♩♫♩ Soooo good to be me! 

KATIE:  Waffles, the song goes  " good to ME."  Not good to BE me.  "BE me"  is a little... well, self-absorbed. 

WAFFLES:  That's what I said! SO good to be me!!!  ♫♩

KATIE:  Monday, Monday. What have you done to me?  ♫♩

Here's Looking At You

WAFFLES:  What are you looking at, Boss?

KATIE:  What am I looking at? What are you looking at?

WAFFLES:  Nothing.

 KATIE:  Because it looks like you're looking at me.  Are you looking at me?


KATIE:  Waffles, you're totally looking at me. Keep your eyes to yourself.

WAFFLES:  How about I look at you with just one eye? Does that count?

KATIE:  Waffles...

About Today's Photos
We all love a good staredown here at the Townhouse and there's certainly no shortage of them. Waffles is always quick to engage. He's like that friend that says too much or stands too close. He has no filter.

Katie, on the other hand, is like Miss Manners. Queen of etiquette, always the lady. But when it comes to a staredown, especially when Waffles is the instigator, Katie always wins. That's why she's the Boss.

Wordless Waffles Wednesday

Ready or Not, it's POTUS Time

KATIE:  The next time we see you, there will be a new President of the United States. 

WAFFLES:  You're going to be PRESIDENT, Boss?  

KATIE:  No, Waffles. I'm not on the ballot so the chances are pretty slim. Besides, I'm already the President of the Town House. 

WAFFLES:  That makes me your Chief of Stuff, right? 

KATIE:  Exactly whose stuff are you talking about, Waffles?  

Get out and vote!
Glogirly and Gloman voted early this year so you can bet they'll be watching the election coverage on TV Tuesday evening. Waffles will likely be entranced by CNN's John King and his magic electoral map. Watching him draw circles around the states with his finger is almost as much fun as chasing the red dot. Katie will be staking her claim to the softest pillow on the sofa while she keeps one eye open for snack opportunities. 

No matter which side of the litter box you lean towards, your vote and your voice matters and we hope you'll exercise your right to vote and be heard. 

KATIE:  What do you mean you wrote in Colonel Sanders?
