Waffles and the Snack Cabinet - Two Years Later

Can you believe it's already been two years since we moved to the mountains? Two years ago we were sleeping on the floor waiting for our furniture to arrive. Two years ago we were building fires to keep warm and melting snow to flush the toilets when the power went out. And two years ago, Waffles was afraid he'd never find the snack cabinet in the new kitchen.

Flashback to two years ago - 

 WAFFLES:  I can't find anything in this new kitchen, Boss.

KATIE:  What do you mean? You can see the whole house from up there.

WAFFLES:  I mean I can't find the snack cabinet with the Cheetos and stuff. How am I going to raid the snack cabinet in the middle of the night if I don't know where the snack cabinet is

KATIE:  Maybe there's no snack cabinet. Did you ever think of that?

WAFFLES:  La la la la... I'm going to pretend you never said that, Boss.

About Today's Photos
When we moved into the mountain house, Waffles and Katie weren't the only ones that couldn't find a thing in the new kitchen. 

Gloman claims that Glogirly moves everything around in-between his visits because he can't find a thing either. 

Fortunately, now that we're into year two, Waffles knows EXACTLY where the snack cabinet is.

Don't Stop MEOW - Waffles Channels His Inner Freddie Mercury to Celebrate the Oscars

WAFFLES:  ♫♩ Don't stop ME-OWWWW! I'm havin' a good time! ♫♩

KATIE:  Waffles, what on EARTH are you doing? And more importantly, what on earth are you WEARING???

WAFFLES:  I'm havin' a good time, Boss! Tonight's the Oscar Meyer Awards and I'm rooting for Freddie! And bologna.

KATIE:  It's not the Oscar MEYER awards, Waffles. It's the Oscars. 

WAFFLES:  That's what I said, Boss. So where's the bologna?

KATIE:  There's no bologna.

WAFFLES:  Whaddaya mean, Boss? Oscar with no bologna is just– 

KATIE:  The Oscars.

Paws Crossed for Bohemian Rhapsody
Glogirly has been more than a little obsessed with the Freddie Mercury and Queen biopic ever since it landed in theaters last November. It's rare for a movie to sneak it's way into her heart and mind and stay there so permanently. She's been a long time fan of some of Queen's greatest hits but had no idea the portrayal of the band and their incredible frontman would stay with her like this. 

Every morning when Glogirly wakes up, she has a song playing in her head. She's woken up like this for as long as she can remember. Since she saw the movie, every morning she now hears Queen. The song that plays in her head more than any other is Somebody To Love. In case you're curious, she never gets tired of it.

She knew from the opening scene, where the camera pans past Freddie Mercury's cats eating from their sterling silver bowls, that she was in for something special. And that Freddie was something special too. Our good friend and fellow Bohemian Rhapsody fangirl, Ingrid King, wrote a FASCINATING article (here) about the movie cats and their trainer. 

Bohemain Rhapsody and Rami Malek, who so magnificently portrayed Freddie, have already scooped up an armful of awards. As we're writing this blog post, the Oscars are just a few hours away and they're up for five more awards. 

Oscars and Golden Globes usually don't mean much to us. We like to watch what we like to watch. But that doesn't mean we don't have a bunch of fingers and paws crossed tonight for Bohemian Rhapsody.

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?
