Waffles is Making His Spreadsheet and Checking it Twice

WAFFLES:  I'm ready for Santa, Boss. Emailed him my spreadsheet and everything.


KATIE:  You emailed Santa a SPREADSHEET??? Who does that? 


WAFFLES:  Duh, Boss. Santa's gone digital, you know. I better text him to make sure he got my list.


KATIE:  Waffles, I think you're overlooking what Christmas is all about. It's about giving, not receiving. 


WAFFLES:  I know, Boss. That's why I GAVE Santa my list.


Oh, Waffles





Despite the fact that Waffles has likely appeared on Santa's naughty list multiple times throughout the year, he scores points every single day with his happy personality and loving affection. 

Katie loves giving and receiving love too. She's just a little more ladylike about it. And prefers to do it without wearing a Santa coat. 



Calendar and Donation Update
Thank you SO much to everyone who ordered one of our new calendars. Tuesday, December 4, was Colorado Gives Day and we donated a portion of each calendar sale to Angels With Paws Cat Rescue & Adoption Center. We chose them because they are a very small rescue organization devoted solely to cats and they rely soley on donations from private individuals like you. 

We've sold out of our first batch of calendars and will receive our second batch today. If you'd like to order one, we have a page set up with all the details about cost, donation info, and lots of pictures:

Weekend Wrap Up

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, where does this one go?


KATIE:  Hang on, Waffles. I'm busy.


WAFFLES:  Sometime today, Boss.

KATIE:  Watch it, Waffles. Or YOU might get packed in that box.


WAFFLES:  Well who's it going to? Because if it's going to the Colonel, I'm IN.

KATIE:  The Colonel???

WAFFLES:  You know, the chicken man. KFC. Extra crispy. Gravy. 

KATIE:  Pretty sure it's going to Glogirly's friend in NYC.

WAFFLES:  Well isn't there a KFC in NYC? OMG! Maybe Glogirly's BFF can take me to the KFC in NYC. Then I can meet the Colonel IRL. 


KATIE:  You know, Waffles. Despite your overuse of acronyms, you might be onto something. I think we're going to need a bigger box. 


Wrapping It Up
Glogirly spent part of the weekend wrapping up gifts to send off to our long-distance friends and family. The temptation of boxes, tissue and ribbon was just too much for Waffles. He had to be in the middle of everything.

Katie is more of a spectator. Always keeping an eye out for falling tissue paper and cat toys.

Each tag measures 3.5" x 2" and comes with colorful cotton twine for tying. The front features a photo and the back is designed with a space to write on. They come in packs of 10.

Waffles and His Rocky Mountain HIGH Ladder

WAFFLES:  Uh oh. Um, Boss??? This ladder is really high. 

Like really, REALLY high. 

Like Rocky Mountain High.


KATIE:  I told you not to go up there, Waffles. What goes up must come down. And that includes YOU.


WAFFLES:  Maybe I'll just stay up here for a while. 


KATIE:  Works for me. 


WAFFLES:  What about dinner though? And what if I have to use the litter box? Boss? Are you there?


WAFFLES:  GLOGIRLY!! HELP ME, GLOGIRLY!!!!!!!!!!

Waffles and the 12' Ladder
Our mountain house has some very high ceilings. 15' at its tallest. And that's right where Glogirly wanted to switch out a light fixture. She'd been eyeing a new one ever since we moved in. So when it finally went on sale for Black Friday, she decided to go for it. 

But she's no electrician. And though she's not typically scared of heights, dangling from a 12' ladder isn't exactly at the top of her bucket list. So she called our super sweet neighbor who said, "No problem! Hang a light fixture? Piece of cake." 

They got the giant ladder in position to make sure it would reach and started to assemble the light fixture pieces on the kitchen island, just a few feet away from where the new light was going to go. 

While putting everyting together, their backs were turned to the ladder. When they turned around, Waffles was at the VERY TOP of the ladder. 12' in the air, in a very tight space, over a cement and tile floor. He can virtually fly up any ladder, (and loves to!) but coming down is another story. Cats may land on their feet, but at this height, if Waffles were to jump he could easily be hurt. He was also meowing in somewhat of a panicked tone. Glogirly ran up the ladder to get him. She had to hold him on her shoulder with one hand and grab the ladder with the other, stepping down backwards to the floor. Bob was holding the ladder and was ready to catch Waffles in case anything went wrong. 

Both Glogirly and Waffles made it down the ladder just fine.


Five minutes later, Waffles did it AGAIN. And Glogirly ran up the ladder again...


WAFFLES:  Can we do it again? Can we???

Ta-Da!!!
Here is our awesome neighbor and canyon cat guy, Bob, hanging the light.



And here's the new light fixture! It's a 'sputnik' design. The LED light comes out from the middle of it and illuminates those shards of acrylic. Cool!

Bathroom Convo

WAFFLES:  How do I look, Boss?


KATIE:  You look like you're on the bathroom counter, where you're not supposed to be.


WAFFLES:  How else am I supposed to check out my handsomeness?

KATIE:  Ok, now you're LAYING on the bathroom counter. That's even MORE against the rules.


WAFFLES:  No I'm not.


K ATIE:  Waffles, just because you're crouched down behind the faucet doesn't mean Glogirly isn't going to see you.


WAFFLES:  Fine, I'll just look handsome down here. Glogirly's at the dentist. So she wouldn't be able to see me anyway. 


KATIE:  Well you better be careful. Lest you forget what happened the last time you had YOUR teeth cleaned. That trick of yours doesn't work on the kitchen counter and it's not going to work here.


WAFFLES:  Wait. What???


Pearly Whites Check-Up
Fortunately for Glogirly, her dental appointment today was just for a cleaning and check-up. She buttered up her dentist with one of our cat calendars. Probably hoping that would bring good karma to her x-rays. Which it did. No cavities, no broken crowns, nothing. 

And nothing is good when it comes to the dentist!

A rare glimpse at our girl, post dental appointment.

Thank you SO much to everyone who ordered one of our new calendars. We've got just a few left. If you'd like to order one, we have a page set up with all the details about cost, donation info, and lots of pictures:   Katie & Waffles 2019 Desk Calendar.

Cat Blanket Adjustment 101

WAFFLES:  BOSS!!! I need help adjusting my blanket. I'm cold.


KATIE:  And I'm busy. 

WAFFLES:  Bosssss...

KATIE:  Adjust your own blanket. You're a cat for crying out loud. Blanket adjustment is one of the first things you learn in Cat 101. 


WAFFLES:  Cat 101? What about Cat 100 and Cat 43 and Cat 17 and stuff?


KATIE:  There IS no Cat 100, 43, 17, 39, 8...whatever. 

Just ask Glogirly. Give her your cute look. 


WAFFLES:  Nailed it! Thanks, Boss.


About Today's Photos
Lots of napping was going on over the weekend. Not that's different than virtually any other day for Waffles and Katie. It was a little chilly in the mountains though, which made for purr-fect afternoon snoozing conditions. 

Waffles and Katie have developed a napping location rotation. One will start on the bedroom chair by the window. The other on the gushy blanket Glogirly keeps on her (unmade!) bed. Then there are the warm spots on the closet floor where extra radiant heat comes through the floor and, of course, the Sleepypods. Every couple of hours they'll get up for a drink or a snack and then move on to the next napping position. Rinse, repeat.

Twinkle Waffles

WAFFLES:  Christmas decorating is the BEST! Check out all the new toys, Boss! There are lots of sparkly stringy things. They even light up! 


WAFFLES:  Lots of red balls.


WAFFLES:  And look! Glogirly even hung some up for me to whap. Don't you just love getting ready for Christmas, Boss?


KATIE:  Not when it involves wearing this ridiculous collar. 


WAFFLES:  If you don't like your collar, I'll borrow you my Santa suit, Boss.

KATIE:  Yeah, that's not going to happen. 


Get Out the Twinkle Lights!
Thanksgiving is so last week. And you know what that means! Glogirly is busy getting the twinkle lights untangled, unpacking the Christmas balls, and making sure Waffles still fits in his Santa coat. 

His coat is a favorite around here. It's styled like a harness, which Waffles has always seemed to be very comfortable in. And though he can wear a harness for a few hours with no problem, we still only slip him into his Santa coat for the occasional photo op. 

Katie's collar photo is from a few years ago. She doesn't think much of it, so now we just let her beautiful black and white tuxedo coat accent the holiday decor. (!)

Last week Glogirly decorated our real Christmas tree, which she planted outside last year. It's a beautiful Colorado White Fir and shaped just like a Christmas tree. She put both traditional colored bulbs on it and small white twinkle lights so it really sparkles. We'll try to get a picture of it!
