A Belated Celebration of Wildlife

Waffles: Hey Boss? It says here that we missed National Wildlife Day. Isn't that every day around here?

Uh, Boss, do things look different around here to you? Isn't there supposed to be a lot more pink?
And chicken? Where's the chicken?

Katie: That's because you're on someone else's blog, Waffles. With all that teal and white, it must be Allie's blog.

Waffles: You mean Faraday's blog.

Katie: No, Waffles, I said exactly what I meant.

While the mom was away in Colorado cavorting with other cats, she also got some pretty great shots of wildlife. We (grudgingly) gave her today to observe National Wildlife Day. 

Which, we would like to point out, isn't today at all. It was Monday. Not that we're criticizing her for getting it wrong.

No, and we won't criticize her for abandoning us, either. Nope, not doing it.

Faraday: Okay, Waffles. Enough, already. You can leave now and go back to your pink blog and stuffs.

Waffles: You say that like it's a bad thing. I don't mind pink. Am I supposed to mind pink? Boss?

Huge thanks to Katie, Waffles and Glogirly for opening their home to our mom.

(and we know it's a bit late, but is anyone interested in seeing photos of the eclipse, from Ground Zero ~ Totality, here in Kansas/Missouri?)


  1. Hey, you had me all mixed up! I'm like...wait a minute...WHA?...the wrong cats on this blog! But...that's pretty funny...hahahahaha!
    Yes, I'd like to see solar eclipse photos; I'm planning for the 2024 event already!

  2. I followed your fun with Glogirly on Facebook. What a beautiful place.

  3. WAFFLES: Hey, Boss? How do we get home to our own blog?

    KATIE: Guess you're going to have to stop and ask for directions.

    WAFFLES: Directions? You mean like for putting my cat tree together?

    We LOVED having your mom to our little mountain hideaway. Hope you checked her bags for stolen catnip and wand toys. ; )
