Outtakes or Takeout?

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, we're having takeout today! What're you going to order? I'm getting General Tso's Chicken. 

KATIE:  I hate to break it to you, Waffles. But today's blog is about outtakes. Not takeout. 

WAFFLES:  Outtakes? But what about General Tso's chicken? And chopsticks. What about chopsticks?

KATIE:  There is no chicken, Waffles. No chopsticks. We're showing some of our behind the scenes outtakes from our Sheer Fun For Cats photoshoot. 

WAFFLES:  You mean MY photoshoot. Hey,wait a minute. what's Glogirly's hand doing in my photoshoot?

WAFFLES:  And her feet! 

KATIE:  Nevermind her feet, Waffles. That flash! It's REALLY lighting up your–

 WAFFLES:  I know. The ladies love a mancat with a nice–

KATIE:  *sigh*

Sheer Fun For Cats
If you haven't heard about our friend Carolyn and the new cat toy she invented called Sheer Fun For Cats®, we hope you'll take a minute and check it out. Waffles and Katie were some of the very early toy testers and it was a huge hit here. So much so that Waffles is the official packaging model.

Playing Cat Hooky

WAFFLES:  Glogirly says we're playing hooky today on account of she's got a bad cold. 

WAFFLES:  So, Boss? What's a hooky? Do I need ice skates to play? And a hooky puck?

KATIE:  Please hurry up and feel better, Glogirly. I can't take much more of Waffles and his hooky. 

Good Morning Showshine!
After our crazy thundersnow, we woke up to a beautiful snow and sun-kissed landscape. And Glogirly woke up to a nasty head cold. Not to worry though. Nurse Katie and her orderly, Waffles, are up to the task and taking turns keeping her company. (And reminding her when it's time for their lunch.)

We hope you enjoy our beautiful view as much as we do!

It's Thundersnowing!

 WAFFLES:  Did you hear that, Boss?

KATIE:  Hear what?


KATIE:  That? That's just a little thundersnow.

WAFFLES:  But thunder doesn't snow. 

WAFFLES:  And snow doesn't thunder. 

Colorado Thunder Snow
It was an all-cats-in-their-sleepypods-NOW Sunday. One thing we've learned living in the mountains is that the weather is anything but predictable. One minute it's blue skies and sunshine and the next it's full on blizzard. Sunday surprised us even more.

Have you ever heard of Thunder Snow? At about 4:00 in the afternoon, the skies turned white, the thunder started booming, the lightening started crackling, and down came a crazy storm of tiny white pellets. Not hail, not really snowflakes either.

It didn't last long before it transitioned into a regular snowstorm. With Colorado's snowpack at a record low, we're doing our snowdance daily. Though we've been enjoying some springlike weather this winter, on the flipside that puts us at a much higher risk of wildfires.


But maybe hold on the thunder.

Waffles and the Great Leprechaun

WAFFLES:  Are you ready, Boss?

KATIE:  Ready for what, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  You know, the Great Leper Can! Tomorrow is his big day! I've been saving his hat for him.

KATIE:  Again with the Leper Can??? Waffles you've been Leper Canning us for five years. Don't you think it's about time you admit it's the great leprechaun, not leper can? 

WAFFLES:  I KNEW it! So there IS a Great Leper Can– I mean Con. Last year you told me he wasn't real. That he was like the Easter Bunny and Santa, who EVERYONE knows are totally real.

KATIE:  If you say so.

WAFFLES:  And he's got a big pot of golden chicken under his rainbow. And he brings all the good cats their very own bucket. I've been super good so I should be getting at least an 18-piece meal. 

KATIE:  I can't believe I'm going to ask this– original or extra crispy?

WAFFLES:  I don't know! It's so hard to decide. Original is so...original. And extra crispy is so... 

KATIE:  Crispy?


KATIE:  Wake me up when it's over. 

Happy St. Catrick's Day!
Thank you, friends, for always making our Irish eyes smile. Ok, so we're not quite sure if we're really Irish. But on St. Catrick's Day, we ALL are!

Waffles and His Upside Down World

WAFFLES:  Whoa, Boss! You look funny sideways. Crazy!

KATIE:  No, I think it's you that looks crazy.

WAFFLES:  OMG! The whole world is upside down!

KATIE:  Now you know how I felt the day you moved in. 

Can You Believe It's Been Almost SIX Years? 
Waffles joined our family in 2012 and life, as well as our blog, was never the same. Though Katie would never admit it, we're suspect she actually likes the spice that Waffles has sprinkled into her life. 

We sure love all that the fun he's sprinkled into ours.

Eye Spy With Waffles' Little Cat Eye

WAFFLES:  I spy with my little cat eye - uh, something black and white!

KATIE:  Gee, whatever could it be? I'm so not in the mood to have your little eye spying on me. Can't you see I'm busy?

WAFFLES:  Aww, c'mon Boss. It'll be fun. I can eye spy something that's black and white and then you can eye spy something that's orange. 

KATIE:  I see enough orange every minute of every hour of every day. How about we just eye spy the insides of our eyelids for awhile? 

WAFFLES:  It's not working, Boss. I can't eye spy anything with my eyes closed. 

About Today's Photos 
Waffles is the most curious cat we've ever met. As huge as his fascination is with the kitchen cupboards and bathroom door, his fascination with Katie is even greater. Wherever Katie goes, so too does Waffles. He follows her everywhere. Even if it's only with his eyes.

Daylight Savings from a Cat's Perspective

KATIE:  So if we have to set our clocks forward this weekend, does that mean breakfast will be earlier or later? This daylight savings stuff is really going to mess with my mealtime.

WAFFLES:  We have a daylight savings account? You mean like at the bank? With an ATM card and everything? 

KATIE:   Waffles, there's no savings account. No ATM card. Daylight savings means we're going to LOSE an hour this weekend. 

WAFFLES:  Uh oh. Did we bounce a check? Is that why we're losing an hour? Are we in trouble with the daylight savings bank?

KATIE:  Waffles, there is no bank. 

WAFFLES:  No bank??? Did someone rob it?  What about all our daylight savings? 

KATIE:  Waffles, now listen to me. Forget the banks. There's no such thing as a daylight savings bank–

WAFFLES:  But where does everybody keep all their daylight savings? What, are we supposed to keep it under our cat bed???

KATIE:  Waffles, daylight savings is when we turn the clocks forward by one hour every spring. 

WAFFLES:  Boss, it's not spring. There's still snow and stuff. This sounds fishy.

KATIE:  Whatever, Waffles. Every year on the second Sunday in March we turn our clocks forward by one hour. That's what we have to do this Saturday night.

WAFFLES:  But if we change all our clocks, how will we know what time it is? How will we know when it's time for dinner???

KATIE:  Oh, we'll know.

Don't Forget!
This Saturday night we'll be setting our clocks one hour ahead. We just hope Glogirly remembers to get up and make breakfast. Just because our clocks are messed up, that doesn't mean our breakfast should be messed up too.

Clearly whoever invented this daylight savings stuff was NOT a cat.

Kitty Breakfast Songs

KATIE:  Good day, sunshine♩♬ Good day sunshine ♩♬ 

WAFFLES:  Wow, Boss. I didn't know you could sing. 

KATIE:  There's a lot you don't know, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Does it get you an extra helping of breakfast?

KATIE:  I'll never tell.

WAFFLES:  I better think of something to sing so I get more breakfast too.

WAFFLES:  Good day ♩♬ ...uh, how does it go? Something about sunshine and stuff? 

KATIE:  That's my song, Waffles. Get your own.

About Today's Photos

Mealtime is something special here. And ever since Katie's dental surgery, she's been smiling and singing brighter than ever. Especially at breakfast. 

It's been a little over six weeks since she had four teeth extracted, including 3 of her four fangs. She's been rocking her lone lower fang and those beautiful pink and black kitty lips ever since. 

Waffles has always been very vocal when it comes to, well, everything. Lately, we've been enjoying some beautiful kitty harmonies.

Waffles: the Definition of Lazy

WAFFLES:  LOLOL!!! I've been laying on Gloman's lap ALL weekend! 

KATIE:  No kidding, Waffles. Talk about LAZY.

WAFFLES:  Lazy? I'm not lazy.

WAFFLES:  Zzzzz..

KATIE:  Fine. Just hog Gloman's lap and sleep the day away. I'll make sure your dinner doesn't go to waste.

WAFFLES:  Dinner???

 About Today's Photos
It was a lazy-movie-watching-lay-around-on-the-sofa weekend here in the mountains. Gloman was in town for a visit and Waffles took FULL advantage of his lap. If it weren't for Katie letting him know it was mealtime, he'd likely have slept through breakfast, lunch AND dinner. 

Yes, Waffles and Katie get lunch. Three squares a day. 

Next, they'll be negotiating an allowance.

Sheer Fun For Cats™ Featuring Waffles the Supermodel Mancat

WAFFLES:  Check it out, Boss! I'm a SUPERMODEL!

KATIE:  Supermodel? Just because Glogirly takes about a billion photos of us every week, that doesn't make you a supermodel. If anyone's a supermodel–

WAFFLES:  This is totally a Supermodel pose! The ladies are going to go WILD!

WAFFLES:  One of my Supermodel secret powers is making myself invisible. See?

KATIE:  Oh, I see alright.

Sheer Fun For Cats™ 
We are super excited to tell you about an awesome new toy called Sheer Fun For Cats. We learned about it two years ago when Glogirly started working with Sheer Fun's founder, Carolyn Keene. 

Carolyn hired Glogirly to help with the logo and packaging and we were one of the very first official testers! Since then Carolyn has become one of Waffles' fangirls and she and Glogirly have become great friends.
The idea for Sheer Fun came to Carolyn when she was working as a professional cat sitter. So many of her kitty clients seemed to be bored with their same old toys. Sparkle balls would lose their allure and catnip mice would gather dust in a corner while cats lost interest.

Carolyn wanted to create a toy that would ignite a cats natural instincts to:
and Pounce!

The toy includes a durable sheer fabric panel with CRINKLE EDGES (yay!), pre-affixed Velcro tabs to attach to the underside of a table and a Merino wool toy called a Fancy Felt. 

But it can be used in SO many ways beyond hanging from a table. In fact, Sheer Fun breathes new life into all of our old toys. We feel like we hit the cat toy jackpot!

SO Many Ways to Play
We've tucked ours under chair cushions, draped it over scratchers and boxes, attached it to our cat tree...we've even draped it right over Waffles. He LOVES hiding and twirling under it. Like so many cats, he likes hiding under something semi-transparent. He can see us, but thinks no one can see him. But please don't tell him. We'd hate to burst his theory of invisibility bubble. LOL!

You can see Sheer Fun For Cats in action on KICKSTARTER. The cat videos are SO much fun! 
And if you hurry, you can be among the first to back the project and get a Sheer Fun toy for your cat. 

Kickstarter is a global crowdfunding platform that helps bring creative projects, like Sheer Fun For Cats, to life. Backers risk nothing and have an opportunity to not only get an awesome product at a below market price, but they help creative small business owners like Carolyn succeed. It's a win-win-win. You win, Carolyn wins and your CAT wins! 

We hope you'll take a  peek at all the fun the cat testers have had with Sheer Fun and consider backing our friend's campaign so your kitties can join in on the fun too.

KATIE:  Ok, is it MY turn now?
