Colorado Mountain Cat High

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, how does that John Denver song go again? 

KATIE:  Please tell me you're NOT going to break out in song. Again.

WAFFLES:  Oh wait! I remember.  ♩♬  Colorado rocky mountain high... ♩♬

WAFFLES:  I've seen it raining chickens from the sky. ♩♬ La la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la,  something 'bout a lullabyeeeeeeeeee... ♩♬Rocky mountain–

WAFFLES: Uh oh. I don't think the next verse has anything about how to get down from my Rocky mountain high.

About Today's Photos
Locking himself in the powder room was Waffles' thing when we lived in our Minneapolis townhouse. But since we don't technically have a powder room here in Colorado, he's had to find a new thing. 

His new thing still involves bathroom shenanigans. One of his favorite spots is on top of the door and door frame leading from the bathroom to the master closet. He's been doing it for a while now,  and despite the quizzical look on his face, he's become pretty skilled at the harrowing maneuver. Even so, Glogirly drops whatever she's doing and runs for the stepstool to perform the bathroom door rescue operation.

That stepstool sees a LOT of action.

Our Rocky Mountain High
Pretty sure this is what John Denver was singing about. This is a photo taken on a day we were experiencing what's called an "inversion." That's when a cloud cover hangs below us as opposed to above us. In the flats, bout 3000' down from us in elevation it will be completely cloudy and as much as 15 degrees colder than up here at our house. Glogirly loves these days because of how the clouds look like water. And it usually means it's sunny up top too.

No tomorrow though! A winter blizzard is moving in FAST.


  1. It's DEFINITELY an orange thing!

  2. Such a pretty view!! John Denver was my first concert back in 1973 when he was playing at our high school auditorium. Love his music. My cat Roxie is not a climber like Waffles. She never went higher than the kitchen counter. She does have the Zoomies every afternoon from 4-5 pm I swear she gets faster every year, not a small feat at 16 years young!!

  3. That’s cool! We hope you’re well stocked for the winter storm!

  4. Helloooo up there, Waffles! You're the kind of cat who proves breakables aren't safe on a high shelf. Cupcake is, too.

  5. stay safe. in snow and on top of doors :)

  6. Waffles, whatever are you up to up there?!

  7. Egads, heart jumped into my throat looking at these photos!

  8. must be high to get up there! Have you been hitting the nip?

  9. I am orinch, I don't go on top of doors. Plus the older I get, the less I jump up high.

    Hope the Bee-lizzard isn't too back for you.

  10. Waffles, you are really high up there and have some really good balancing skills. We think they need to rewrite the second verse to help you get down from the Rocky Mountain High. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.

  11. Waffles we think Glogirly should just put a shelf up there for you. It would make life so much easier for everyone! Some of the Squeedunk cats love to climb, like you and others like to stay low, like Katie! Best of both worlds! We have to admit, you have some pretty mad skills, dude!


Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
