Anniversary Toes

ELLIE:  One, two, three, four–

WAFFLES:  What are you counting, Ellie?

ELLIE:  How long it's been since I came home to you and Glogirly and Gloman. Do you know how many toes it's been, Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  It's almost SIX months! 

ELLIE:  That's a lot of toes, Mr. Waffles!

WAFFLES:  You're going to have to count on two feet now, Ellie.

Just Six Months Ago

It's hard to believe little Ellie has already been here for almost six months. It seems like she's been part of our family forever. She has brought so much love to us. Especially to Waffles– her mentor, confidante, and BFF. 

In honor of this fun milestone, we thought you might enjoy a glimpse back at their very first conversation. Was Ellie ever that SMALL???!!! 

Six months ago...

WAFFLES:  Wait a minute...who are YOU???

ELLIE:  I think my name is Ellie. What's your name?

WAFFLES:  I'm confused. Ellie???

ELLIE:  Hi confused. It's nice to meet you! 

WAFFLES:  I mean, I'm, I'm Waffles. 

ELLIE:  You mean like pancakes? You don't smell like pancakes.

WAFFLES:  You really don't smell like pancakes.

One week later...

Best Furriends Forever.

Girlz and Boyz

ELLIE:  Mr. Waaaaaafffles! Whatcha doing down there? 

WAFFLES:  You know, the usual. Just looking handsome for the ladies.

ELLIE:  Can I look handsome with you too?

WAFFLES:  It's kind of a mancat thing, Ellie. 

ELLIE:  Mancat thing? 

WAFFLES:  You're kind of know, like Glogirly. What with all that eyeliner and stuff.

About Today's Photos

Every time we share one of Ellie's photos, we hear about her beautiful eyeliner. It's pretty hard to be jealous of a little kitty, but Glogirly sure would love it if she could apply eyeliner as purf-fectly as Miss Ellie! That's one of those elusive makeup tricks Glogirly has never been able to master.

It just so happens that Ellie's little pink nose is the color of Glogirly's lip gloss too.  Glogirly may be part cat, and Ellie sure is part Glogirly. 💕

Ellie, Waffles, and the Valentines Paper

ELLIE:  Thanks for the Valentines paper, Mr. Waffles! 

WAFFLES:  Valentines paper???

ELLIE:  Didn't you get me all this paper for Valentines Day? Paper is my FAVORITE toy ever. Like ever EVER. I thought you knew.

WAFFLES:  But it's not even pink. 

ELLIE:  Yeah, but it's PAPER. 

WAFFLES:  And there aren't any hearts or anything. 

ELLIE:  Valentines isn't about pink hearts and stuff, Mr. Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  It's about being with someone you love, right? 

ELLIE:  You mean like paper?

WAFFLES:  No. Like ME, right? 

ELLIE:  I was kind of thinking it was about–

ELLIE:  PAPER!!!!!!!!!!!!

About Today's Photos

Happy Belated Valentines Day, everyone! It was super cold up here in the mountains so we built a fire to snuggle next to. Gloman's favorite kindling is the left over packing paper from all the stuff Glogirly buys online. 

Ellie goes CRAZY for the packing paper. As long as Glogirly keeps shopping, Ellie will never need another cat toy! LOL!

Ellie the Snake Charmer

ELLIE:  Hey Mr. Waffles! Have you met my new friend?

WAFFLES:  You do realize that's a SNAKE, right? A slithering, slippery thing with a tongue that sticks out.

ELLIE:  He's not very slippery, Mr. Waffles. He's kind of furry. And pink.

WAFFLES:  Well you better look out, Ellie. He might jump you if you're not careful.

ELLIE:  There, there, Mr. Snake. You're not going to jump are you?

WAFFLES:  Kind of looks like he's jumping. 

ELLIE:  Is he ok, Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  I don't think he's moving.

ELLIE:  Don't worry, Mr. Snake. I'll make it better.

About Today's Photos

We just received our February CatLadyBox and one of the toys tucked inside all the goodies for Glogirly was this Hissy Kissy Snake kicker toy. Ellie is a little too young to realize that some kitties are scared of snakes. (And some people too!) 

Waffles was pretty busy investigating and supervising while she made fast friends with Mr. Snak

A couple of times during a more spirited play session, Mr. Snake got stuck to one of Ellie's claws and when flying. That was an unexpected surprise for both kitties. (!)

Sweet Dreams

ELLIE:  ...butterflies and birds and squirrels and Mr. Waffles. Zzzzzzz...

WAFFLES:  You're dreaming again, Ellie. You kind of wiggle when you dream. 

ELLIE:  ...watching movies and eating snacks and sleeping on Gloman's lap. Zzzzzzz..... With Mr. Waffles.

WAFFLES:  And when you wiggle, you wake me up. 

ELLIE:  ...Mr. Waffles, Mr. Waffles, Mr. Waffles... Zzzzz...

WAFFLES:  Still wiggling, Ellie. 

ELLIE:  Zzzzzz.

WAFFLES:  Finally. Zzzzzz.

About Today's Photos

Glogirly has been taking lots of photos lately, but it seems like every single one has Waffles and Ellie joined at the hip. Or with their heads mushed together in sleepy bliss. It's cuteness overload every single evening. Sure, there are a few brief breaks from the cuddling for meal and litter box activities, but they are super quick to return to their default cuddling position. On Gloman's lap. 

Meanwhile, Gloman is trapped. LOL!

Interwebs Interruption

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The interwebs aren't working.

WAFFLES:  That's because our modem blew up again. Which means no interwebs until it's fixed. 

ELLIE:  So how are we supposed to do our blog post? How are we supposed to say hi to our Facebook friends?  Mr. Waffles, what are we going to DO all day??? 

WAFFLES:  I don't know about you, but I'm going to stick right here to this warm spot. 

About Today's Photos

When our modem goes down here in the mountains, we're pretty much cut off from the rest of the civilized world. That is, unless Glogirly drives up to the fire station where there's a fancy new AT&T cell phone tower. Hopefully the man in brown shorts will get us our new modem stat. Until then, we'll have to really rough it. LOL!

Catnap Marathon

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles? Are you going to sleep all day? 

WAFFLES:  Yaaaaawwwwwn–

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles??? Are you going to stop yawning? Sometime soon? On account of I thought we had a play date. 

WAFFLES:  Zzzzz–

ELLIE:  A lunch date?

ELLIE:  Guess it's more like a nap date.

About Today's Photos

Ellie and Waffles continue to become more and more bonded. Both when they play AND when they sleep. Pretty sure Ellie would play all the time if Waffles was game. She does a great job of taking his cues though and knows just when to play, when to groom, and when to nap.

Ellie, Waffles, and the CatLadyBox

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles!!! 

WAFFLES:  Outa my way, Ellie...I'm going in!

ELLIE:  Butt Mr. Wafflfes, I don't think you can fit in there. 

WAFFLES:  Can't FIT??? Are you kidding?! It's a box. I can fit in ANY box.

WAFFLES:  Are you sure, Mr. Waffles? 

ELLIE:  Because this box looks kind of small. Or you look kind, big.

WAFFLES:  Big???

WAFFLES:  There. See? I fit just fine. 

ELLIE:  Not much room left in there, Mr. Waffles.

ELLIE:  I fit too. See?

ELLIE:  I fit kind of better. 

About Today's Photos
The best day of EVERY month is the day our CatLadyBox arrives. It's filled with goodies for Glogirly like t-shirts and stuff, and it always has some super fun toys for the kitties. Of course one of the best parts is the box itself. It didn't take Ellie long to claim the box AND the toys as her own.

Her favorite toy from this month's box is Petie the Penguin. He's a stuffy toy with crinkly sounding wings and catnip. 

ELLIE:  He can FLY! He can FLY!!!

ELLIE:  He can bounce too! 

ELLIE:  There, there. Nice Petie.
