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!

Katie and Waffles in Black & White

KATIE:  Do you have my good side, Gloman? Oh, wait. What am I saying?


KATIE:  Every side is my good side.  As for Waffles, his best look is anything with his eyes shut. Right, Waffles?


WAFFLES:  *dreaming* Chicken....Katie...birds...Katie...Mr. Mouse...Katie...

KATIE:  Shhhh...do not wake the–


WAFFLES:  Did someone say dinner???


WAFFLES:  MY good side is right here at the dining room table.


Thanksgiving in Black & White
Gloman loves black & white photography. In fact, one of his cameras shoots only black & white. He almost always has it with him, so it's only natural that Katie and Waffles would make their way into his viewfinder. 

Glogirly made her way into his viewfinder too while they were visiting Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. 


All of today's beautiful photos are courtesy of our favorite CatDaddy. Ok, so he's our only CatDaddy. But we still love him with ALL our hearts.

Cozying Up to Our CatDaddy

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! I call firsties with Gloman! 


KATIE:  Nice try, Waffles. But I had firsties with Gloman WAY before you.


WAFFLES:  Ok, then I call firsties headbutts with Gloman.


KATIE:  Headbutt all you want, Waffles. Gloman and I have important things to discuss. 

WAFFLES:  What kind of important things, Boss? 

KATIE:  You know...life, love, and how to keep your paws out of my food dish. 


WAFFLES:  So if I can eat your food without my paws...


Thanksgiving with our CatDaddy
We've been cozying up to the warm fire and our warm CatDaddy while he's here in Colorado for the Thanksgiving holiday. Gloman is definitely the BEST part of our Thanksgiving!

Katie & Waffles 2019 Cat Desk Calendar is HERE! Plus a Black Friday and Giveaway Special!

KATIE:  You're not supposed to be touching our new calendar, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  But I'm only touching the months that you're on, Boss.

KATIE:  Even MORE reason to keep your paws off.

WAFFLES:  You don't have more months than me, do you Boss?

KATIE:  Waffles, the calendar is not a competition. 

WAFFLES: So how many months do you have? 

KATIE:  Not a competition, Waffles. But for the record, it's even. Some months have both of us and the rest are split in half.

Thanksgiving Eve with Katie & Waffles

WAFFLES:  So when do we get our turkey, Boss?

KATIE:  Tomorrow, Waffles. Thanksgiving is tomorrow.

WAFFLES:  TOMORROW???? That's like a whole DAY away. What if I want to be thankful today? Can I have my turkey today? Maybe just a little gravy?

KATIE:  There's no turkey today, Waffles.  No gravy either. But you can still be thankful. 

WAFFLES:  Thankful without turkey and gravy? What about chicken? 


"Thankful Katie"

KATIE:  Waffles, Thanksgiving isn't about turkey or even chicken. It's about celebrating all we have to be grateful for. 

WAFFLES:  Like wand toys and stuff?

KATIE:  Well, want toys are nice. But wand toys don't really mean anything unless you have someone to play with. 

WAFFLES:  Aww, Boss. I like playing with you too. 

KATIE:  Not exactly what I was going for, Waffles. But your heart is in the right place.


"Gratitude"


WAFFLES:  Thanks, Boss. As long as my heart is here with you and Glogirly and Gloman, I know it's in the right place.



Happy Thanksgiving from All of Us
We wish our friends in the US a very Happy Thanksgiving filled with friends and family. We hope you're able to spend time with the people (and cats!) you love.

Gloman is here with us in Colorado and Gabe & Justina (Gloman & Glogirly's kitty-loving son and daughter-in-law) will be joining us soon. That means Waffles will be doing a LOT of lap jumping, making sure everyone gets equal time. Even Katie will be soaking up the affection. Gabe and Justina are the only people, other than Glogirly and Gloman, that Katie is loving and relaxed around.


The Day After...
Please check back with us the day after Thanksgiving for ordering details on our new Katie & Waffles desk calendar! ...plus another special giveaway!

A Thanksgiving Conversation with Katie & Waffles

"Thankful"
KATIE:  It's Thanksgiving this week, Waffles. What are you thankful for this year?

WAFFLES:  You mean like chasing bugs and fetch toys and stuff? And my girlfriends? I'm definitely thankful for the ladies.

What about you, Boss?

KATIE:  It's hard to put into words, Waffles. It isn't any one thing. It's lots of little things. Lots of little, wonderful things.

WAFFLES:  How little, Boss? Like the bug?

KATIE:  Not exactly, Waffles.

Like the sunshine in the morning that warms us and the blue jays that fly by our window.

Like how every time I roll over on the rug, Glogirly will pet me in just the right place.

Like how Glogirly talks to us in her sing-song voice. And how she sometimes even sings to us.

Like how Gloman picked me out of all the shelter kitties and adopted me for his girl.


WAFFLES:  And like how Glogirly picked me! You know, when she adopted me!

KATIE:  Now you're getting the hang of it, Waffles. Though as Glogirly tells it, you picked her.

We have a warm house to live in with comfy beds, plenty of toys, healthy food, and lots of windows to watch the world through. We live in a home that's filled with laughter and joy. And we have a forever family who loves us with all their heart.


WAFFLES:  I love YOU with all my heart, Boss.


KATIE:  I know. 

I love you too, Waffles. But if you EVER tell anyone I said that...

WAFFLES:  I know.

Gratitude
We get a little misty-eyed here during the holiday season. Sometimes we get busy and lose sight of how fortunate we are. Thanksgiving is a beautiful reminder of how important it is to never take our blessings for granted.

We especially want to thank YOU for welcoming us into your hearts and inboxes. For laughing with us, singing along with Waffles' silly songs, and sometimes, even getting all teary with us. Our friends and readers bring us so much joy throughout the year. We just want you to know how thankful we are for you.

We love you with all our hearts. 💕

Holiday Houseguests INCOMING! Ready, Set, It's a FELIWAY® Giveaway

This giveaway is sponsored by FELIWAY®
WAFFLES:  Something smells funny, Boss. And not ha-ha funny. 



KATIE:  What, did you sleep right through the doorbell? 

WAFFLES:  What doorbell?

KATIE:  You know. The bell. On the outside of the door. The one people ring when they want to come inside. 

WAFFLES:  So that's what the ding-dong sound means. I thought it meant the man in brown shorts brought us a new box. 

KATIE: We have houseguests, Waffles. 


WAFFLES:  What? No one told me. 


KATIE:  I'm telling you now. 

Thanksgiving is just a few days away. That means a revolving door of people invading our space, making lots of noise, and smelling up the place with their stuff for the next few weeks. We won't be in the clear until 2019.


WAFFLES:  2019??? That's like NEXT YEAR!


Holiday Houseguest-Ready 
Now that Halloween is in our rearview mirror and we've got a couple of snowstorms under our belt, Glogirly is already untangling holiday lights and sorting ornaments. Usually, we wait until Thanksgiving weekend, but she wants to be ready for guests early. Ok, truth be told, she's just super excited for Christmas and has a thing for twinkle lights. And when you have a red kitchen, well...the holiday spirit is there all year long.

Getting ready for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukah means getting ready for guests too. And a big part of that for us is FELIWAY®.

We like to greet our overnight visitors with smiles, meows, and a fresh bottle of FELIWAY® CLASSIC Spray. A couple of spritzes on their luggage and boots helps to keep Katie and Waffles feeling comfortable and secure.


Ok, so Waffles typically warms up to new guests VERY quickly.


But for Katie, accepting new people takes time.


Another important item in our houseguest arsenal is the FELIWAY® CLASSIC Diffuser. We keep a couple plugged in when we've got visitors. Particularly in areas where people and cats spend the most time. (Like Waffles' favorite room - the kitchen)


How Does It Work?
Cats communicate through natural messages released in the air called pheromones. These pheromones give them a sense of safety and belonging.

FELIWAY® mimics naturally occurring feline pheromones, or "messages."
It's important to understand the difference between these feline "messages" as well as the difference between the FELIWAY® CLASSIC Diffuser and MultiCat Diffuser in order to select the best formula for your needs. We use both depending on the situation.

Happy Messages - For Stress Due to Houseguests and Visitors
You've probably seen your cat rub their face against corners, furniture and even you. As they mark their territory, they leave an odorless message called a Feline Facial Pheromone. These happy messages provide comfort and security. The arrival of houseguests can certainly upset this apple cart. The FELIWAY® CLASSIC Diffuser and the FELIWAY® CLASSIC Spray deliver these happy messages, helping cats to feel more comfortable and secure when newcomers are in the house.

Harmony Messages - For Cat-to-Cat Animosity and Stress
Momma cats communicate with their kittens through natural messages released into the air. These Cat Appeasing Pheromones help to maintain harmony and social bonds between cats of all ages. The FELIWAY® MultiCat Diffuser helps to reduce conflict between cats living together by creating "harmony messages." It may help decrease fighting, chasing, blocking, and even staring, which for us is the perfect storm of displacement aggression behaviors. 


How to Properly Use the Diffuser Plug-In
  • Plug into an outlet in the room where the cats spend the most of their time. We like to position a second in our guest room as well. 
  • We've found it takes about 24 hours to kick in. 
  • Leave plugged in continuously. 
  • One vial will last approximately 30 days. The diffuser should be replaced about every 6 months. 

Pick-Your-Own Giveaway!
We're celebrating the holidays with a special GIVEAWAY! Three lucky winners will receive their choice of any one these three FELIWAY® products.
  • FELIWAY® CLASSIC Diffuser Starter Kit
  • FELIWAY® CLASSIC Spray
  • FELIWAY® MultiCat Diffuser Starter Kit
