The Calm Before the Houseguest

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, you sure have been napping a long time.

KATIE:  We're cats, Waffles. That's what we do. 

WAFFLES:  Yeah, but are you ever going to let me nap in Glogirly's chair by the window? 

KATIE:  Maybe when our next houseguest arrives. I'll be stationed in the walk-in closet. Threat level orange.

WAFFLES:  Orange? Our houseguest is orange?

KATIE:  Of course not, Waffles. *Yawn* But she is a cat lady. So expect lots of smells and a layer of foreign fur on her clothes. 

WAFFLES:  You mean like from France?

We've got a surprise guest arriving for a mountain visit this Friday, all the way from Jersey City. She's a dear friend of Glogirly and a longtime admirer of Katie and Waffles. In fact, she was swooning over Katie before there even was a Waffles.

Glogirly calls that BW. Before Waffles.

Or as Katie refers to it, When life was simple, quiet, and peaceful. And no one stole her breakfast.

Waffles & the Watermelon

It's officially watermelon season, and you know what that means! We HAVE to share one of our all-time favorite blog posts from 2016. Hard to believe it's been three years since Waffles & the Watermelon. We hope you love it as much as we do.

WAFFLES:  *uuuummmph* Man, this thing is heavy. How do those Harlem Globetrotter guys do it?

KATIE:  Waffles, what on earth are you doing???

WAFFLES:  This isn't regulation size, Boss. It's too big. I don't think I can shoot hoops with it.

KATIE: Shoot hoops??? Seriously? Waffles, its a watermelon. Not a basketball. Oh're a CAT.

WAFFLES:  Wait! I've almost got it. Just have to dribble–

KATIE:  Waffles, the only thing you're capable of dribbling is food onto your chin.

WAFFLES:  He shoots! He scores!

WAFFLES:  And the crowd goes WILD! *AAAAAAAHHHH!*

WAFFLES:  Hey! Where'd the crowd go?

About That Watermelon
Today's pics are from Waffles' first watermelon encounter back when we lived at the Townhouse. Glogirly had just returned home from the market and her arms were so overloaded with grocery bags, she had to set the watermelon down on the floor before she could make it to the kitchen.

We'd heard that some cats like watermelon...but not quite like this.

Cuckoo for Chicken and Netflix

WAFFLES:  What. I'm just Netflixing.

KATIE:  Waffles, it's 2:00 in the morning. Shouldn't you be breaking into the kitchen cabinets? Or locking yourself in the bathroom?

WAFFLES:  I already did that. Now I'm watching One Flew Over the Chicken's Nest.

KATIE:  Cuckoo, Waffles. It's Cuckoo's Nest.

WAFFLES:  No wonder there's no chickens in this movie. What a rip-off.

KATIE:  The real question is why you're Netflixing in the first place. You're a CAT.

WAFFLES:  A cat who likes movies and stuff.

KATIE:  Whatever. You're just in it for the cheese popcorn.

WAFFLES:  Wait. There's CHEESE popcorn???

KATIE:  Must have missed it during your cabinet raid.

About Today's Photos 
Waffles' photos might look a little grainy today, but for good reason. Would you believe they were taken in total darkness? That is, except for the light of the computer screen shining in his face. That's why his pupils are so dilated.

Given the state of the kitchen many mornings, what with all the snack cabinet door left wide open, we're pretty sure the late night cupboard raid is a regular thing.

This really is a cuckoo's nest.

A Meowy Sendoff

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, why is Gloman packing his suitcase? Didn't he just unpack it?

KATIE:  No, Waffles. He's been here for almost two weeks. Don't worry though. He'll be back before you know it.

WAFFLES:  Before I know it??? How long is that?! Sounds like a gazillion years in lap time.

KATIE:  You know, Glogirly has a lap too. Not that I'd ever sit on it. 

WAFFLES:  Yeah, but Gloman's lap is the best. 

About Today's Photos
We had a super fun staycation with our favorite CatDaddy. We sent him home with plenty of memories and cat hair. Waffles probably slipped one of his fetch toys in Gloman's camera bag. Just a little insurance to make sure he comes back real soon.

A Full Serving of Mancat Handsomeness

WAFFLES:  Now that the holiday weekend is over, I think the ladies need a full serving of handsome. 

WAFFLES: And the Boss says I'm full of handsome. 

KATIE:  Well you're half right, Waffles. You're definitely full of something. 

About Today's Photos
Glogirly is a sucker for Waffles and his endless expressions. He's a cat who loves life with every whisker, every nose freckle, every furry inch of his being. And when she's able to capture that in a photo, she can't stop smiling.

Waffles, we love you.

And though she seldom admits it, Katie has fond-ish feelings for you too.

When you're not hovering over her shoulder, eyeing her dinner or sleeping in her pod.

Happy 5th of July???

WAFFLES:  Happy 4th of July, Boss!

KATIE:  Waffles, you're a day late. As usual.

WAFFLES:  Ok, Happy 5th of July?

KATIE:  The big celebration was yesterday, on the 4th of July.

WAFFLES:  But you're wearing your star spangled sunglasses today, Boss.

KATIE:  And they're far more chic than that hat of yours.

WAFFLES:  So what's the big deal with the 4th of July, Boss? Besides cool hats and stuff.

KATIE:  July 4th is the day we celebrate our country's birthday, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Birthday??? No wonder Glogirly decorated my cat lounge. Was there cake? I didn't get any cake.

KATIE:  No cake, Waffles. It's not that kind of birthday.

WAFFLES:  No CAKE??? What a rip-off.

KATIE:  Waffles, not EVERYTHING is about food, you know.

WAFFLES:  Are you sure??

KATIE:  On July 4, 1776, our country's founders signed the Declaration of Independence and the United States of America became, well... the United States of America.  Each year we celebrate our nation's birthday with family reunions, potato salad, and fireworks.

KATIE:  Lucky for us, there are no fireworks up here in the mountains. Still, it's probably a good idea to hang out under the sofa.

Happy 4th of July to all our US friends!
And a very special thank you to our Military Heroes– 
The Servicemen, Women & Animals that keep our country safe.

WAFFLES:  I still say there should've been cake.

Flying Feathers - Playtime With Our CatDaddy

WAFFLES:  Incoming! 

WAFFLES:  Waffles the great wand toy warrior catches his feather in one paw! 

WAFFLES:  ...and the crowd goes WILD!

KATIE:  FYI, Waffles. You're not the only one that Gloman plays with around here. 

KATIE:  And it looks to me like you're laying down on the job. Pretty lazy form if you ask me. 

WAFFLES:  Yeah, but I can still catch my feather.  

KATIE:  Barely.

WAFFLES:  I don't even have to get up.

KATIE:  Well this is my idea of not getting up. 

Playtime With Our CatDaddy
Waffles and Katie got in some quality play time with Gloman today. Just another one of the perks of having him home for a visit.

When it comes to Waffles, playtime is like potato chips. 

He. Can't. Stop. 

In fact, Gloman decided he'd see just how long Waffles could go before he gave up. Oh, he'd lay down plenty. Today's photos are evidence of that. But as long as there was a feather in sight, he just couldn't turn away. Everyone was giggling at how he just couldn't stop. Finally, after a full hour, and despite the lure of the feather, he decided it was time to walk away. He headed straight for the kitchen for a snack and then curled up inside his Sleepypod in the closet for an epic nap. 

Pretty sure he's still sleeping.

...Meanwhile, Katie has a chance to enjoy some Waffle-free playtime.

Jeeping Cats

WAFFLES:  We're going 4-wheeling, Boss. And I'm driving!

KATIE:  No way, Waffles. Colorado isn't ready for you behind the wheel.

WAFFLES:  But Gloman said...

KATIE:  ...that he and Glogirly are going 4-wheeling.  He's way too smart to let you behind any wheel. 

4-Wheeling Cats
While Gloman is home in Colorado, he's been enjoying his morning coffee out of his Jeeping Cats mugs. Glogirly designed them a couple of Christmases ago as a surprise for Gloman. They turned out so fun, she decided to include it in our Zazzle Store.

Katie is driving, of COURSE. But Waffles looks totally happy riding shotgun.

4-Wheeling CatDaddy
On Sunday, Glogirly and Gloman joined our neighbors, Bob and Jodie for some jeeping up in the mountains. They went on an offroading on Switzerland trail just outside of the sleepy little town of Nederland, Colorado. When it comes to "rough" roads, Glogirly is VERY happy to have Gloman behind the wheel.
