When Hearts Break: Katie and Waffles On Death and Dying

WAFFLES:  Boss? How come everyone is all sad and stuff?

KATIE:  Waffles, we lost some very dear kitty friends this past week.

WAFFLES:  Well shouldn't we go look for them? You know, make some signs and stuff?

KATIE:  No, Waffles. Signs aren't going to bring our friends back. And they're not really lost. They're in our hearts now.

WAFFLES:  What do you mean?

KATIE:  Well, you know how Glogirly says that her mom and dad live in her heart? And Nicki, the cat that came before us, he lives in her heart too?

WAFFLES:  Oh yeah. She even has a special box for his memories.

KATIE:  Well the really special memories don't fit in a box. They're so big, the only place they can fit is in our hearts.

WAFFLES:  But Boss, what if my heart isn't big enough?

KATIE:  Don't worry Waffles. When your heart is filled with love and memories and friends, there's always enough room.

Always In Our Hearts
There have been a number of cats in the blogging community that we've had to say goodbye to recently. Many of us started blogging around the same time. For us, it was way back in 2009. So it seems some of our fellow blogging felines are reaching the age where health becomes a concern. It's a sober reminder of how fragile life can be. And when another blogger's heart is broken into a million pieces, our hearts break for them too.

To the cats we've lost and their loving humans,
Your light shines brightly in our hearts today and always.

Highrise Memories

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, I'm laying in the window seat. 

KATIE:  And this is breaking news because...

WAFFLES:  Just thought you'd want to know.

KATIE:  You do realize that right behind you is a window 24 floors up in the air. That's 261 feet down to the ground. Give or take.

WAFFLES:  *Gulp* That's a LOTTA of feet. What does that convert to in paws?

About Today's Photos
When Glogirly is missing Gloman she likes to look through photos of our downtown Minneapolis apartment so she can visualize what he's doing and where he is. 

Today's photos are from a trip Glogirly, Katie and Waffles took way back in the spring of 2017 just a few months after we became Colorado mountain cats. 

Though there aren't many deer or squirrels to watch out the windows, Katie and Waffles loved their birdseye view. They were fascinated with the constant movement and buzz of the city. 

They certainly had no trouble getting comfy in their home away from home. 

WAFFLES:  Are you sleeping, Boss? Because you sort of look like you're sleeping. I just want to make sure. So are you sleeping?

KATIE:  Busy, Waffles.

Catnap Dreams

WAFFLES:  . . . . . . mmmmm . . . . . chicken drummies. . . . . extra crispy . . . . . zzz . . . 

WAFFLES:  Boss, are you sleeping?

KATIE:  . . . . . . birds . . . . . squirrels . . . . . snowflakes . . . . Waffles???  Please, oh please, tell me I'm still dreaming. And if I am dreaming that I'm not dreaming of Waffles.

About Today's Photos
It was a quiet weekend at home for Glogirly, Katie, Waffles. That is until Glogirly put her new Bohemian Rhapsody Blu-ray into the player and turned the volume WAY up. 

Since we were mostly all glued to the sofa this weekend and the only camera within reach was Glogirly's iPhone, today's pics are not our usually fancy big-camera photos. While she was busy power lounging in her jammies, she managed to catch Waffles and Katie in action. Or rather in lack of action.

Then this happened. 

Oh, Waffles. What will the ladies think???

The Un-Valentine

WAFFLES:  Hey, Boss? Did you like the valentine I gave you yesterday? 

KATIE:  Valentine? What valentine? You didn't give me a valentine.

WAFFLES:  Yeah I did. It was a heart-shaped box of chicken treats.

KATIE:  What heart-shaped box of chicken treats?

WAFFLES:  You didn't get any?

KATIE:  Get any? I didn't even see it. ...Waffles?


KATIE:  You ate them all, didn't you?

WAFFLES:  Um, maybe you had some and you just forgot?

KATIE:  Waffles, you should know by now that I never forget. 

WAFFLES:  That's not true. You forgot to give me a valentine. 

WAFFLES:  Like I said, Waffles. I never forget.

Happy Un-Valentines Day!
Glogirly calls Valentines Day a Hallmark holiday. As much fun as flowers and chocolates are, she and Gloman have always believed they don't need a special day to show their love for each other. That's what every day of the year is for. Oh, they still exchanged texts with lots of heart emojis yesterday...but they do that every day. 

Pretty sure Waffles feels the same way, especially when it comes to Katie. He doesn't need a special day or a fancy red tie to impress her and profess his love for her. Much to Katie's chagrin, he does that all the time. Every. Single. Day.

Valentines Shocker - The Waffles & Katie KISS

Golden, CO
February 13, 2019

Shock waves out of the sleepy mountain town of Golden, Colorado today. Two supposed rival cats caught on camera in what can only be described as a most embarrassing and compromising position. According to an anonymous source, the lip-locking felines have been identified as Waffles and Katie of the GLOGIRLY cat blog.

The photographer behind the salacious shot is rumored to have sold exclusive rights to the photo for a figure in excess of 25 cents. 

Katie, the tuxedo cat pictured above, originally argued the "misleading and horrifying snapshot" was a result of someone's mad Photoshop skills, however the authenticity of the image has been confirmed and the photograph deemed untouched. 

Katie now claims the viral photo is "nothing more than a bad camera angle." 

A VERY bad angle indeed.

Waffles, (pictured above in a press photo provided by his agent), has admitted he is the orange tabby shown only with his back to the camera in the controversial shot. He's wasted no time sharing the KISS photo on social media. Meanwhile, women across the globe and clowders of female cats are left shocked and heartbroken.

L-R: Princess Floofenfluff, Chris, Pancake, Tutu
"NOOOO, say it isn't so, Waffles!" 
-Princess Floofenfluff, Lubbock, TX

"But I thought I was his girlfriend!" 
-Chris, Kansas City, MO

"YOU TWO-TIMING #%&*@!!" 
-Pancake, Savannah, GA

"But...but what was all that one in elebenty billion talk???"
-Tutu, Fargo, ND

The complicated and often contemptuous relationship between Waffles and Katie is no secret to fans of their blog. According to legal experts, a single picture like the one published on the Enquirer today, exposing the two cats in a blatant public display of affection, could not only permanently tarnish their reputations but take down the entire GLOGIRLY empire with a single swipe of the paw.

Happy Early Valentines Day!
If you've been reading our blog for a while, you might recall that we're not huge fans of Valentines Day as a holiday. We like showing our family and friends how much we love them every day of the year. There's just too much love to pack into a single day! But that doesn't mean we don't like to have a little Valentines fun! We hope you enjoyed our tongue-in-cheek tabloid today and we hope you have some Valentines Day fun too!

Case of the Missing Cat Ears

WAFFLES:  My EARS!!! I can't find my EARS! 

WAFFLES:  Have you seen them, Boss?

KATIE:  Did you check Lost and Found?

WAFFLES:  We have a lost and found?

KATIE:  As much as Glogirly wishes we did for all those times she misplaces her, we don't have a lost and found. Have you checked on top of your head?

WAFFLES:  Duh, I can't see the top of my head, Boss.

WAFFLES:  Boss! Now YOUR ears are gone! 

KATIE:  My ears are just fine, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Are you sure they're fine, Boss?

KATIE:  Yes. What's not fine though, is that the only thing separating you from me right now is a thin layer of fine Egyptian cotton. 

Laundry Antics
Bed making day is like a trip to the amusement park around here. Though Katie and Waffles don't really "play" together, they come awfully close on laundry day.

Ever since Katie was a kitten, she's loved burrowing under the sheets while the bed is being made.

Waffles is more of a poser and uses bed making day as an excuse to turn on the cute.

Who are we fooling...Waffles doesn't need an excuse to turn on his cute.

Tongue Tied

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, do you think it's hard to talk with your tongue out? I think I sound kind of funny.

KATIE:  You always sound kind of funny, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  Thanks, Boss. 

KATIE:  That wasn't a compliment, Waffles. And to answer your question, I can talk just fine. Tongue or no tongue. 

WAFFLES:  I don't know, Boss. You look kind of funny.

KATIE:  I look funny???  Have you looked in the mirror lately?

WAFFLES:  But this is a really old photo of me, Boss. 

KATIE:  And you haven't changed a bit.

About Today's Photos
Glogirly has this crazy thing about capturing pictures of animals with their tongues out or their mouths open. She could have hundreds of beautiful photos of the many majestic mountain animals that visit us, but her favorite will always be the one like this–

It just makes her giggle to imagine what they might be saying if they could talk.

Hmmmm...perhaps that's because it's what she does ALL the time with you-know-who #1 and you-know-who #2.

WAFFLES:  I'm #1 though, right?

"Cats Gone Wild" with Pet Fit For Life Teaser Toys - Plus a Giveaway and Shelter Donation!

WAFFLES:  It's a swing and a miss– And the crowd goes WILD!!! AAAAAAAHHHH!

This post is sponsored by Pet Fit For Life®

WAFFLES:  No miss this time! The handsome orange mancat is the MVP of Wand Toys. 

WAFFLES:  Just look at that form, ladies. He must work out.

WAFFLES:  Let's hear it for–

KATIE:  Get ahold of yourself, Waffles. And quit talking in the third person. You're not the only cat around here who can play with a feather, you know.

WAFFLES: Whaddya mean, Boss? I thought it was just you and me here. 

KATIE:  Exactly.

KATIE:  So, Waffles. Now that you're done hogging that red feather toy, we need to talk. 

WAFFLES:  You're not breaking up with me, are you, Boss?

KATIE:  You understand that just because this wand toy has two feathers and two balls, that doesn't mean we're going to play TOGETHER. You got that?

WAFFLES:  Two feathers. Two balls. Play together. Got it, Boss! I'm so glad we're not breaking up.

KATIE:   No, Waffles. Two feathers. Two balls. ONE toy. That I'm going to play with. You just have to wait your turn.

WAFFLES:  But what about all that together stuff you were talking about?

KATIE:  Two feathers. Two balls. ONE toy. How about you go find your own feathers and toys?

WAFFLES:  Nailed it.

Introducing Pet Fit For Life Cat Teasers & Exercisers
We had no idea that when the big, puffy envelope addressed to Katie and Waffles came in the mail, we were about to hit the wand toy jackpot. And did we EVER! 

Our friends at Pet Fit For Life asked if we'd like to try out some of their toys and share our experiences with our readers. Somewhere along the line feathers were mentioned, and that's all it took!

About Pet Fit For Life
Pet Fit For Life is a brother and sister team with a vision to create products and toys that inspire pet lovers to interact and bond with their furry family members. Their toys are designed to keep pets AND their people moving, active, and healthy. 

Active play is not just about exercising your cat's body and stimulating their mind, though those are very important and wonderful things. It's about connecting with them on a much deeper level and strengthening the human-cat bond. Time spent playing is never, ever time wasted. 

The Pet Fit For Life team has taken what might be considered ordinary, everyday wand toys, and added unique features to make them more interesting to cats, easier to use, and more fun to play with.

Our Take on What Sets Them Apart from Other Similar Toys We've Played With 
Multiple Feather and Toy Attachments
Each toy comes with two or more attachments that can be played with at the same time or switched out and used individually. Not only is this fun, it will add to the longevity of the attachments.

Unique Attachments
We really love the variety of attachments offered. It's not just about feathers...though don't get us wrong, we LOVE feathers! There are SO many fun options to choose from and many of their toys come with a variety so it's almost like getting two or three toys in one.

This just might be one of our favorite features. If you look closely at some of the photos, you'll see there is a tiny bell attached to the tip of many of the attachments. We love that it provides an audible cue in addition to the visual. Katie's eyesight isn't quite as sharp as Waffles, but she can hear a cat treat drop from over 100 feet away. So for her, this is an added benefit that has ignited her inner kitten and enabled her to play more actively than she has in a while. 

Sturdy Wands & Easy to Store
The wands/rods either telescope down or come apart in two pieces making them easy to fit into a small drawer for storage. Assembly is super easy and they stay strong and don't come apart even when Waffles is playing with them.

Comfy Handle Grip
The handle is cushiony and very comfortable to hold onto. Again, even when Waffles is playing with them.

We didn't realize how reasonably priced these toys were until we visited the Pet Fit For Life Amazon Store. We must have bee too busy opening up all the exciting packages of toys! When compared to many other toys we've either been given or purchased ourselves, we were very pleasantly surprised at how much you get for your money. Just take a look below at what are only a few of the toys they offer and you'll see what we mean. Each toy with all its attachments range from about $7.95 to $11.95. And if you're an Amazon Prime member, speedy shipping is free.

So What Do We Think?
It doesn't take a kitty rocket scientist to look at the photos of Waffles and Katie and figure out that they love the toys. Glogirly loves them too. 

And we love their story and the thought and care they've put into making them. Toys are a remarkable thing. They bring people and pets together in a way that creates a lasting and loving bond. 


It's a Giveaway!
We're so very excited to be able to offer these wonderful toys in a special giveaway for our friends and readers! Three lucky winners will receive THREE Pet Fit For Life toys! The prizes will be a random mix of some of the toys we've featured here today. 

Just enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. Though prizes can only ship to US addresses, we're opening the giveaway to our readers worldwide so that if anyone outside the US wins, they can gift their prize to a friend or shelter here in the US.

But Wait, There's More! 
A Special Shelter Donation
Pet Fit For Life will be making a generous toy donation to one of our favorite, local, cat-only rescue organizations here in Colorado. Angels With Paws Cat Rescue and Adoption Center in Lakewood is a small but powerful rescue organization that works hard to make a difference for cats and the people who love them. 

Funded strictly by private donations from caring people like you, they are a mostly cage-free rescue shelter that has provided over 10,000 cats with care, rehab, and safety until finding them loving forever homes.

Good luck, everyone...and thanks for entering!
