Birthday in the House!

ELLIE:  Last week was SUPER exciting! Gloman had a BIRTHDAY! 

WAFFLES:  You're talking like this is the first birthday he ever had, Ellie. 

ELLIE:  Well I've only had TWO birthdays. I bet Gloman has only had like three or four! 

WAFFLES:  And I thought I was bad at math. Seriously Ellie, I've had like TEN birthdays. 

ELLIE:  You mean you're older than Gloman, Mr. Waffles?! 

WAFFLES:  That hurts, Ellie. That really hurts.

Happy Birthday, Gloman!!!

Our dearest cat daddy celebrated another spin around the sun last week! Glogirly made him his favorite breakfast, Eggs Benny. There was cake and cupcakes too, Then they celebrated at one of their favorite restaurants for a yummy dinner. Over the weekend they watched their Netflix stories in their pjs surrounded by cats and snacks. It was PURRfect! Happy Bday, Gloman! We love you so, so much!

Cat Tax Prep

WAFFLES:  Whaddaya mean you can't deduct our toys on your taxes??? 

ELLIE:  Glogirly says that's not how it works, Mr. Waffles. She also said you don't even know what a deduction is.

WAFFLES:  I do too know what a deduct is.

ELLIE:  You mean a deduction? 

WAFFLES:  That's what I said. And our toys should totally be a deduct. And our litter, and our food.

ELLIE:  Glogirly said you also have to pay taxes to claim deductions. Do you pay taxes, Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  PAY?? You mean like with real money and stuff?

WAFFLES:  This whole tax thing is no fun at all. 

About Today's Photos

Last week Glogirly had just started on her taxes and this past weekend, with the help of Waffles and Ellie, she finally finished. Ellie was more of a bystander, but Waffles was very much into the paperwork aspect of it all. He even wedged himself into Glogirly's office chair while she was working in it. That is until he realized that tax prep is not nearly as much fun as he'd hoped.

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles, I'm supervising Glogirly while she works on her taxes. Do you want to help?

WAFFLES:  Kind of busy, Ellie. There's no sun over there either.

ELLIE:  Yeah, but there's a pretty awesome cat tree. 

WAFFLES:  Have at it, Ellie. I'm busy.

ELLIE:  You don't look busy, Mr. Waffles.

WAFFLES:  It takes a lot of skill to not look busy when I'm this busy.

About Today's Photos

April 15 is fast approaching, so when Glogirly isn't skiing, she's prepping her taxes. And that means a LOT of supervision on Ellie's part. Until there are bank statements and receipts cluttering the floor and bags of paper to climb into, Waffles is taking a back seat in the sun.

Waffles in Wait

WAFFLES:  It's almost dinnertime and Glogirly's still not home. 

ELLIE:  Don't worry, Mr. Waffles. She's probably out skiing. Gloman will make us dinner. 

WAFFLES:  But look at the clock, Ellie. It''s...

ELLIE:  You still can't tell time, can you Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Well my stomach can. My tiny, starving, food-deprived stomach can.

About Today's Photos

Whenever Glogirly is out skiing and the time approaches mid-afternoon, Waffles takes to his post to wait for her. He sits on the back of the sofa where he has clear view of the clock AND clear view of the road coming down to the house. He can see the Jeep come down the big hill, and then he knows Glogirly's home. Once she walks through the door from the garage with her boot bag and jacket, he gives her a  very serious talking to!

Rescue Mission: Cat Ears

This is Glogirly with her cat-loving friend, Barbara. They try to get out and ski together twice a week. Always with their cat ears! Last week though, they had to embark on a rescue mission to hunt for one of Glogirly's ears. She lost it when they were skiing in the trees. The ears attach with strong magnets and one had apparently popped off when she brushed against some branches while skiing between a couple of tightly spaced trees. So they retraced their steps. It took three chairlifts and two black diamond runs to get them to the spot where they entered the trees. Slowly, they repeated their path, following their own ski tracks. And right where the tree branches were hanging low, there was a tiny black speck peeking out of the snow. 

Their rescue mission was a success! Glogirly once again had her helmet ears and all was right in the world.
