Pre-Breakfast Patty Cake

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, hold still. You've got something on your head.

KATIE:  There's nothing on my head, Waffles. Mitts OFF.

WAFFLES:  Nope, there's definitely something there. 

KATIE:  Yeah, it's called my fur. 

WAFFLES:  Well, can I touch it? 

KATIE:  What do you think?

Patty Cake, Patty Cake
As sure as the sun rises every morning, Waffles and Katie engage in their daily game of pre-breakfast Patty Cake. As soon as the refrigerator opens and Glogirly starts dishing up the morning meals, Waffles gets his game on with Katie. She's often a willing participant. But Waffles just doesn't know when to stop pushing her buttons...or pushing his paw onto her forehead or chest. The game is always silent, not a hiss to be heard. 

But the end is always the same. Katie locks eyes with him in a stare down. Then Waffles mews a quick trill and scampers off. 
Katie: 1
Waffles: 0


  1. Binga and Sparkle used to play this game - in fact, when I first came to live here, Binga taught it to me too. But I wasn't as willing a participant so it fell out of habit.

  2. Harry and Sherpa play this game all the time. Then they chew on each other. Then I get annoyed and yell at them

  3. It must be a top cat tussle thing.

  4. Oh Waffles, when are you going to learn you can’t win against a girl!

  5. We do it too! With hisses and KISSES!

    We loved photo #3 the best, where Waffles & Katie look like they're negotiating World piece!

  6. Katie is still boss...and Waffles won't forget that. ;)

  7. Now, if only Ham would learn to do this with Gemini. He's quite the handful around here...

  8. It's good that Katie doesn't knock Waffles into next week!

  9. We play this game too, but it often turns quickly into a wrestling match ! Purrs

  10. It's a good thing that Katie has some self discipline, because I don't think Waffles has any. 😄
