KATIE: Waffles! Wake up! It's here!
WAFFLES: It's here, Boss! It's here!
KATIE: That's what I said, Waffles. It's here!
WAFFLES: Uh... what's here again?
KATIE: I'll give you a hint.
WAFFLES: OMG, it's my BIRTHDAY!!! What'd you get me, Boss? A bucket of extra crispy? A giant side of gravy?
KATIE: No, Waffles. Believe it or not, it's not always about you. It's Gloman's birthday!
WAFFLES: We should get him a present! Do you think he'd like a wand toy?
KATIE: Not unless Nikon makes wand toys.
WAFFLES: He's always talking about some 400 millimeter Nikon thing. I bet that's a REALLY BIG wand toy!
KATIE: I've got a better idea, Waffles.
Happy Birthday from your FAVORITE cat. Thank you for adopting me and bringing me home to your girl. Thank you for our long conversations about life, love, and Waffles. Thank you for scratching my tummy and massaging my face whenever I tip over on the rug for you. Thank you for understanding me, watching out for me and for the extra treats when Waffles isn't looking.
Most of all, thank you for loving me.
Happy Birthday from your EXTRA FAVORITE cat. Thank you for always having room for me on your lap. Thank you for playing fetch with me, watching movies with me, and fixing my broken wand toys. I'm sorry about all the singing...but if you tell me your favorite song, I'll try to learn it for you.
Thank you for calling me your little buddy.
Happy Birthday to the Best Cat Daddy EVER!
Today's photos are from a birthday vacation we took as a cat-family a few years ago. We rented a pet-friendly condo up on the north shore of Lake Superior in northern Minnesota.
Though we didn't get to spend Gloman's actual birthday with him this year, we celebrated getting to spend three whole weekends with him earlier this month. And so he'd still have some special treats to enjoy on his big day, we sent him a care package of his favorite cookies - oatmeal raisin and peanut butter.
Happy Birthday, Gloman! We love you BIG! ♥︎♥︎♥︎
