Tickle Fighting

Today's blog post is one of our favorites from the archives. The photos were taken way back in 2015 when we were still living in our Minneapolis townhouse. When it comes to Waffles though, some things just never change.
WAFFLES:  TAG! You're it, Boss!

KATIE:  Tag, I'm what, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  It, Boss. You're it.

KATIE:  You're touching me, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  No, Boss. I'm tagging you.

KATIE:  Tagging doesn't sound any better than touching. And what have I told you about touching?

WAFFLES:  What have you told me about touching?

KATIE:  That's what I said. What have I told you about touching?

WAFFLES:  No, I'm asking. What have you told me about touching? 

KATIE:  Seriously, Waffles. We've been over this again and again and – 

WAFFLES:  Ok, so if touching is out and tagging is out. How about tickling?

KATIE:  You did not just ask me that.


About Today's Photos
It's no secret that Katie and Waffles have what can only be described as a complicated relationship. Often their encounters end in a huff and a hiss with one or the other storming off. Occasionally, Glogirly has to play referee. But when these photos were taken, Glogirly caught them doing something she never thought she'd see. Playing. Or at least as close to playing as two cats like Katie and Waffles can get.

Glogirly had glanced over to the other side of the kitchen and saw what she thought was a fight ensuing. Sure enough, Katie and Waffles were batting back and forth patty cake style and then tumbling around on the floor. A little chase here, a little chase there. But vocally, they were silent. None of the usual hissing. Not even a faint growl. It was as if they were actually having fun. 

Could it be the two were finally letting their guard down? What's next? Grooming and napping together? ...uh, probably not.


  1. MOL! I remember this one! Still hilarious.

  2. This must be an orange cat/tuxie thing. It happens here every day at mealtime!

  3. You've got to hand it to Waffles; he really doesn't take 'no' for an answer!

  4. Never thought I'd see it, usually neither one gives an inch, and there they are playing - one for the history books for sure!
