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.


  1. Waffles, this post convinced me you were crazy... like I hadn't known that already! MOL

  2. I admire Waffles' determination to move that BIG watermelon as if it WERE a mere basketball! The shape is right, but the weight is all wrong,specially for a cat! Of course Waffels doesn't always think he is a cat!

  3. OMC! Thank you for posting this one again. It's our all time favorite!

  4. still hilarious.... you are going to have to get him another one

  5. Oh, Waffles, you're such an overachiever.

  6. Fun to revisit this funny event - Waffles looks so young here.
    Thanks for the smiles!

  7. We love this post. Still funny.

  8. We love these photos of our pal Waffles doing his thing. He sure does like his watermelon

  9. Waffles, I'll share my watermelon with you ANYTIME! I LURV's food of the gods!

  10. One of my favorite post! Does Waffles still try to dribble one today?

  11. You are quite the character, Waffles. :)

  12. This such a wonderful flashback post. Waffles, you need to start with something a little bit smaller then a watermelon. Thanks for sharing. Have a great rest of your week.
