Cats and Taxes

WAFFLES:  So how come Glogirly is using HBO words at the computer, Boss?

KATIE:  Taxes, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  What's taxes, Boss?

KATIE:  Everyone has to pay a portion of the money they earn to the government. Glogirly is figuring out how much she has to pay. 

WAFFLES:  Cool! What does she get for all the money she has to pay? Does she get to pick out what she wants? Like can she get wand toys and stuff?

KATIE:  Taxes don't buy wand toys, Waffles. They pay for roads and schools and provide help for people who need it. They pay for lots of stuff.

WAFFLES:  But what if I need a new wand toy?

KATIE:  Waffles, you have TONS of wand toys. You don't need a new one.

WAFFLES:  But what if I did?

KATIE:  That's not how it works, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Well that's a ripoff. 

KATIE:  Perhaps you should write your Congresscat. 

It's That Time of the Year
Tax time. Glogirly dreads it every year. She's been camped out in the office with stacks of paper surrounding her. Wherever she goes, so do Katie and Waffles. So at least she's had company. though that might be because the office is the sunniest room in the house.

Katie likes to observe the whole process, but Waffles enjoys taking an active role in the paperwork. Kind of like a slip-n-slide made out of bank statements.


  1. My human is actually pretty organized with the tax thing... one of the few areas where she kind of has it together! Our paperwork is with the accountant right now.

  2. Yeah, taxes are no fun here either. We love that Waffles pillow in the last pic!

  3. I think Congress should work on Wand Energy, and fresh food in every bowl, MOL!

  4. so much help - so much paperwork. good luck Glogirly!!

  5. We're just waiting to hear back from the accountant. Ours are far too complicated to do ourselves! Which is probably good because the words here are not just HBO words when Mama gets frustrated...

  6. Gosh, I forgot about the taxes, since this is the 2nd year in a row that I've hired a CPA to git'erdone! The Hubby grumbles about the cost, but he's not the one trying to crunch the numbers, is he?!? Yes, I was very proud of myself doing my own taxes since I was in high school, but it's too hard for me now, and I've made my share of errors, which really makes me made! Hats off to you, Glogirly!

  7. Mum lets a guy do her taxes. No headaches for her.

  8. Waffles, you are lucky that you don't have to do taxes. But we know if you were running the show. There would be cat wands for everyone to go around. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.

  9. I like the idea of wand refunds MOL!

  10. The mom wishes she could use us as deductions.

  11. I got my taxes done a couple weeks ago. A great relief! Then today I got an email about a revised 1099 from my credit union. I don't even want to look.

  12. Vets, tax people all charge a lot but we need them. Okay we need the vets at least...
