Life High Among the Skyscrapers - Part 2 of Katie & Waffles' Grand Hotel Adventure Flashback

WAFFLES:  OMG, BOSS!  Did you see the view??? Look at all those sky scratchers! The sky must really be itchy. 

KATIE:  Scrapers, Waffles. Those are sky SCRAPERS. You know, tall buildings. And there's no such thing as an itchy sky. Did you notice there aren't any birds up this high?

WAFFLES:  That's because they don't like flying in an itchy sky. And the squirrels are never going to be able to climb those sky buildings.

KATIE:  Whatever Waffles. I thought you were a city cat. You know, if we're going to stay in a chic downtown suite like this, you really ought to put on your sophisticated pants.

WAFFLES:  I don't think I packed those, Boss.

Day 2 of Katie & Waffles' Grand Hotel Adventure
Life is grand at the Grand! Katie & Waffles hung out in the room today while Glogirly checked in on the construction progress at the Townhouse. All of our furniture was moved out and the floors and cabinets were ripped up. We're told extra care was taken when handling our cat trees. Tomorrow installation of the new floor begins.

Just like on our vacation we took earlier this year, Katie has taken calm command of the hotel suite. Even away from home, she's queen of her castle. ...and she continually amazes everyone with how comfortable she is in such a new environment. 

Though there's a BIG king size bed, she's not hidden under it even once. She'd rather lounge on top in plush comfort. 

Waffles conducts regular rounds of the rooms, often sharing the songs of his people. He's adventurous, brave and quick to explore every nook and cranny. But he also needs a lot of reassurance. He's much more of a conversationalist than Katie.

It didn't take Waffles long to find the man chair. Midcentury modern and perfect for the sophisticated mancat-about-town. 

Tomorrow we're taking the Waffle Wagon for a spin to explore the lobby. We'll also share more with you about where we're staying and their best-of-class pet policy. A lot of hotels say they're pet friendly. But the Kimpton Hotel Group, of which the Grand Hotel Minneapolis is part of, really means it.

Please join us tomorrow for Day Three of Katie & Waffles' Grand Hotel Adventure Flashback
