Thanksgiving Cuteness ALERT

WAFFLES:  Hey Ellie! Just so you know, you're not the ONLY cute kitten around here. It wasn't very long ago that*I* was a cute kitten too. Just sayin'.

ELLIE:  Is that really YOU, Mr. Waffles???

WAFFLES:  You don't see any other orange cats around here do you?

ELLIE:  Um, no? So you must be super old, Mr. Waffles. How long ago was that?

WAFFLES:  Whaddya meansuper old???

ELLIE:  What, are you like a whole year old or something?  

WAFFLES:  Very funny. Ha. Ha. Well, I'm not super good at math and stuff (neither are you!) but Glogirly says this photo is from eight years ago, on my gotcha day. 

ELLIE:  Gotcha?

WAFFLES:  When Glogirly and Gloman got me. 

ELLIE:  You mean like from Amazon? Did they get free shipping on you too?

NO, Ellie! My adoption anniversary. I'm not some bag of litter or wand toy you can order online. 

ELLIE:  You can order wand toys ONLINE???

Happy Thanksgiving Week from our family to yours!

Our hearts are full this week as we pause to reflect on the many blessings we have. We are so fortunate to have a home filled with love, good health, plenty of food, and lots of wand toys. Our hearts go out to those who are struggling, who are alone, who are scared with uncertainty, and especially to those who have lost someone they love.

Eight years ago, Waffles joined our furry family and changed our lives forever. He brings joy to everyone who knows him, up close and from afar. Glogirly and Gloman can't stop smiling when they see him take little Ellie under his wing. He truly has a heart 1000 times the size of his furry little body. 

As we reflect on the people and pets we are so very thankful for, we hold the memory of our sweet Katie close in our hearts. We miss her every day and find great comfort in the thousands of photos and blog posts that grace our site with her memory. We will always love you, sweet Katie girl.

We are so very blessed to have you, our friends and readers, in our family too. Thank you for welcoming us into your hearts and inboxes year after year. Thank you for laughing with us and loving us. 

All our love,

Glogirly, Gloman, Waffles, & Ellie


  1. I live alone with 4 cats. My kitties keep me sane with their love, their antics, their cuddles. I really would be alone without them.

  2. Lovely photos of you all. Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. I’m so glad you put Katie as a kitten and all grown up along with Ellie and Waffles baby pictures.
    It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without all of them either in our hearts or physically there.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to the four of you!

  5. Oh baby Waffles! Of course Katie will always be cute.

  6. Such adorable pictures! They grow up so fast, sigh.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

    So much cuteness there and it was good to see baby Katie too.

  19. Mum is bummed as she doesn't have kitten pics of me. She found me when I was 1.5 years old. But she thinks I could have looked a lot like Waffles.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you as well, we loves you.

  20. Seriously, Waffles...those kitten photos of you just SLAY me!

  21. Adorable photos. Happy Thanksgiving!

  22. We thank YOU for sharing your Katie with us from the inception of the blog, as it will remain a touchstone for us when we want to revisit an adventure or special moment. And for adopting Waffles and helping us as the fur family grew in the warehouse apartment. Now we get to see Ellie flourish, a reminder to us all that our hearts--even when broken--have an infinite capacity for love and gratitude. From the gang in the Warhehouse apartment, somewhere near the Statue of Liberty, to the Mountain house, nestled in the trees and beauty of the Colorado mountains, we send you much love and peace as we enter the holiday season. Ellie--hoping you and Waffles are on patrol during turkey making time! Tell Gloman and Glogirly to get good photos for us readers!!

  23. Squeee!!! How I LOVE this post! I can't believe you have Waffles 8 years already! It seems like he just got there! You know what I LOVE about Ellie's eyes? It looks like she is wearing eye liner!!!!!! Sooo beautiful! Wishing you all a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving, YOU are one of many things I am thankful for this year!! Lots of love always from all of us!!

  24. You sure were a most wonderful cutie pie, Waffles!!

    And Ellie, age is only in the eye of the day you might be telling a similar tale to an other kitten...MOL!!

    Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
