ELLIE: Mr. Waffles, did you know that this is my THIRD Christmas with you and Glogirly and Gloman?!
WAFFLES: THREE?! I didn't even know you could count that high, Ellie. So you know what three means, right?
ELLIE: Three? I don't know, Mr. Waffles. I thought it just meant, you know, three.
WAFFLES: It means you're supposed to get me THREE presents.
ELLIE: But Mr. Waffles, Glogirly's been telling me that it's not about the presents. Or the the treats. Or the toys.
WAFFLES: Well yeah, it's about being with the people and cats you love and stuff. Your family. Your friends. But that doesn't mean there can't be presents.
ELLIE: But isn't me being here with you present enough?
WAFFLES: Well, sure...but I was king of thinking freeze dried salmon, feather wand toys, and catnip mice and stuff might be nice too.
ELLIE: Mr. Waffles, as long as I have you, as long as I have Glogirly and Gloman, well...I have everything.
WAFFLES: That totally sounds like something Katie would have said.
ELLIE: You mean Katie, the Boss? Does that mean I get to be boss now?!
WAFFLES: I love you too, Ellie. But I wouldn't push it.
Merry, Merry! Happy, Happy!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! This is our last blog post before Christmas so though it's a few days early, we want to wish you the most beautiful of holidays.
