She identified with Piglet's quiet and shy nature. He was an underdog, but with Pooh by his side anything was possible. They shared a love and friendship that resonates in her heart today.
In fact, it's Piglet's untainted innocence that in many ways inspires how she writes Waffles' voice. And Pooh's pragmatism that finds its way into Katie's.
One of her favorite Pooh-Piglet conversations goes something like this -
Piglet sidled up to
Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Nothing," said Piglet.
"I just wanted
to be sure of you."
Each day, Katie and Waffles seem to get a little closer. Emphasis on a "little." Someday though, she imagines Waffles and Katie just might share that same exchange.
