Beauty School Lessons for Cats

WAFFLES:  Whatcha doing, Boss?

 KATIE:  Practicing my beauty poses. Tilt head, eyes up, over the shoulder–

WAFFLES:  Wow, Boss. I didn't know you had to practice all that beauty stuff. 

KATIE:  It's all about playing to the camera, Waffles. Knowing your best features and accentuating the positive. 

WAFFLES:  Accentuating? Like with a British accent? Or maybe French. I bet the ladies would like–

KATIE:  No, Waffles. Just point your best feature towards the camera. For me, it's my eyes. For you–

WAFFLES:  How's THIS, Boss?!

KATIE:  Yeah, I don't know I'd call that your best feature. You have nice eyes, Waffles. Try that.

WAFFLES:  Wow, Boss! You think I have nice eyes? 

KATIE:  Just look towards the camera already. Sometime today.

WAFFLES:  What if I blink? Or what if I have an itch?

KATIE:  Don't overthink it, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  Over what??

KATIE:  Three words. Beauty school dropout.

About Today's Photos 
If you've been visiting us for awhile now, you know that Glogirly has taken thousands of photos. 95% of them are of Katie and Waffles. 3% are of other cats. And that last 2% are of the floor, her feet or the inside of her lens cap.

Of those thousands of photos, virtually all of Katie's are elegant, ladylike and demure. With Waffles as her inspiration, Katie's also mastered her sarcastic are-you-kidding-me glare. Like Zoolander's Blue Steel, it's become her signature look.

Waffles, on the other hand, is anything but serious. That's one of the reasons Glogirly loves photographing him so much. When his fun-seeker personality shines through, he's like the cat of a thousand faces. She loves catching him looking up, looking guilty or with his mouth open, meowing and talking.

No surprise, the looking guilty thing comes quite naturally to him.


  1. Waffles has lovely green eyes and a cute pink tongue! Katie just has that super model vibe going on. They are both adorable!

  2. Well, Waffles may be a beauty school dropout... but he's photogenic in lots of other ways!

  3. Waffles may be a beauty school drop out, but it's because he's got such mad skills and is naturally photogenic!

  4. Whoa, Waffles, you got a compliment from Katie!! That must have been a rare treat. :)

  5. Waffles and Katie both know how to work the camera. Waffles may not know that he knows........

  6. Katie, you do the beauty shot very well. You do have nice eyes.
    Waffles, you are photogenic so can keep doing what you are doing ;)

  7. Love your photos. Have a great day.

  8. I love Katie as I always have. have brought out his personality and I am totally just his minion. All he would have to do is ask and it would be done.

  9. Your percentages of photos matches mine, except maybe I've added more 'other cats' recently...just because I find cats EVERYWHERE these days! Waffles is downright adorable, and Katie's eyes are worth staring into.

  10. we suspect that overthinking the pictures is the least of Waffles concerns MOL

  11. There you are with that cute little raspberry at the end Waffles! You are so cute!

  12. Wonderful photos as usual =^x^=
    You both have a great weekend !

  13. While Katie is beautiful, Waffles makes me smile

  14. I love the one with his tongue sticking out.

  15. Orange Steel, coming soonish!

  16. Katie, you have the tolerance of a saint when it comes to Waffles. :)

  17. You are gorgeous, Katie and you don't have to practice it.

  18. Another rule Waffles, keep your tongue inside your mouth!

  19. Thanks to Dan, I have thousands of glorious cat photos, too. And yes, it's quite interesting the "look" some of them have on a consistent basis. Like our Zoey, she always has a haughty glare, like she finds it completely distasteful that you're even in the same room with her...and then there's Kizmet - he's like your Waffles, has a face of a hundred different clowns!

  20. It’s all in the eyes. When your cat blinks softly and looks away it means he loves you and we can do the same to them. Show love through the eyes. Katie and Waffles shine their personalities through their eyes.


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