Like all the groupies who attended the Bark/MeowWorld Conference in Atlanta, our mom (aka The Traitor) was gaga about getting to spend time with celebricat Waffles (Glogirly)! Though she had met him at BlogPaws in May, she’d had no opportunity to interact. But this time, a Cocktail Party to celebrate Waffles’ debut on the can of Mike’s Harder Firebomb Apple Ale was scheduled for Friday evening.
When the appointed time arrived
our mom The Traitor and Sampy’s (Kitty Cat Chronicles) mom, Emily, headed for the party. They were advised before entering to speak quietly so as not to upset the guest of honor. With the crush of people in Waffles’ hotel room, Mom expected to find that Waffles had retreated UTB. To her surprise, he was out and about greeting his admirers.
The Traitor got up close and personal and fed Waffles some kibble. And she took dozens of photos. We are only sharing a few as this is our blog after all. The Traitor says we don’t need to remind her. She claims that by
allowing forcing us us to write this post, she is acknowledging our importance and ownership of this blog.
When The Traitor and Mom Emily met up, Mom gave her some homegrown nip for all the kitties and Astrid furs for Sampy. These had been in ziploc bags in her purse. Waffles quickly gravitated toward the lingering aroma.
We guess, if it is your room and your party, kitties are allowed to do whatever they want. Mom claims to have had a talk with Waffles about his “naughty” behavior, but we think they were canoodling. She says that he seemed to listen, but she noticed forays into other purses as well.
After cocktails 16 of the partygoers braved the wind and rain for a dinner together at Maggiano’s arranged by Mom Emily. On their return to the hotel several of the ladies remained in the lobby in order to continue their visit with Emily.
The Traitor did not confine herself to hobnobbing with Waffles. She also betrayed us with two foster kittens, Stoli & Sangria, from Random Felines. So not only did she come home smelling of Waffles and Huck, she was covered with kitten essence as well. How rude and inconsiderate can one person be?
She’s not sharing info about the conference as she says most of it was pretty boring. According to her the best part was spending time with human and furry friends.

Seriouslies. OUR mom came home smelling the SAME WAY. Hrmpf.
Well, even if your mom was a traitor, we’re glad she had a good time with Waffles, Stoli and Sangria, and those other traitors. MOL!
Love all those furry sweet faces!

well we are sorry you weren’t happy about the traitor going away, but sometimes you have to let her have her fun to remind her just how awesome you guys are..
Great pictures, thank you for sharing ! It looks like your mom had great time ! Our Mum didn’t betray us with Waffles, but it’s only because the Conference took place too far away for her to attend ! Purrs
What great photos. We loved hearing all about everyone’s experiences. Waffles certainly was a big hit! He is a cutie!!
Don’t feel bad, guys. Our mom betrayed us for Waffles as well… She stunk pretty bad when she got home. But you know what didn’t stink bad?? THE NIP!!! Thank you guys so much for the delicious nip. And, as you saw, Sampy enjoyed Astrid’s furs as well.
Mom had a wonderful time meeting up with your mom! She is already talking about BlogPaws… and that is months away!! Geeeeez….
Sampy sends 20439872034785 kisses to Astrid, and we all send love and hugs!
Waffles, you are a busy kitty like me.
Blogging pals are just the best and it sure is fun to meet them in the fur!
You have a wonderful mom. She will always love you best. ~xo~
Our meowmy came home smelling like cat and dog…neither of whom we gave purrmission fur her to touch. She says they were our doggy cousin and a kitty from across the street…she says…
Why do we even allow our slaves to get away from us?
The mom cheated on us with those other cats too. We’re making her pay for that indiscretion.
My human hung out with Waffles and the foster kittens too. I am happy to report that Stoli did not like her! So there was no chance of him wanting to go home with her.
Our Mom loves Waffles too 🙂 We would have been upset too but Mom’s can’t help it…….

I think Kitties Blue your mom owes you lots of treats and attention. Not only did she leave you alone for several days she left you to meet other cats! Unthinkable!!! I sure hope she makes it up to you.

Yous can\t let them out of your sight for even a minute and theys fraternizing with other kitties!!!!
What a fun post about the weekend! The head peep says that seeing everybody was the best part of the weekend by far.
Meeting fellow animal lovers is always more fun than the mutterings and other going ons of conferences 🙂
We would love to meet Emily one day 🙂
the critters in the cottage xo
Waffles is a cutie, I can see why mom wanted to meet him. She should give you some gifts to make up for it though.
Looks like they all had a good time even if your mum was a traitor.
That’s why I don’t permit TW to attend these things. If she went, she I get more swag and product review opportunities? Sure. But it’s not worth it.
that should read “It she went, WOULD I get more swag …”
She better have brought y’all a lot of treats back.
I think retribution is on the cards – I don’t know what it means, but I think it’s bad! 😉 xx
Wow sounds like fun. I think that Waffles is pulling the Marmalade card. We can look cute and get away with murder.
Its an Orange thing
You see there no such thing as loyalty with peeps. Having fun is one thing but then spending time with other furry friends is not on. My peeps would be the same. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
Uhoh……is there anything WORSE than a traitor? I think not!!! Well, she DID come home to you and didn’t go off with any of those “others” so maybe she should get a FEW points for that!!
Glad you got to spend quiet time with W. By the time I got there he was cornered in the sardine can crush and I didn’t feel comfortable staying. I would have loved one on one time.
Sounds like a clear betwayal to us too. But yous know da peeps don’t see it dat way, and so Lexi and me say mommy can look all hers wants too and play a little too, so long as all those udder kitties know dat at da end of da day she be comin’ home alone to us. MOL Hav a gweat day.
Dezi and Lexi
Thanks for the shout out. That was a very good wrap up of the weekend – and mom says the peeps she met was the best reason to go!!
Looks like it was a lot of fun – at least, the friend part!
