To celebrate my having a poem written about me and this wonderful holiday for black cats, I’m sharing some more photos of me to prove that black cats are special. I think you’ll agree after viewing them. Please comment on this blog if you do. I love compliments.
Cats are naturally curious, so when you put up the Christmas tree, receive packages, and wrap gifts, they usually want to check things out. Here are some videos of cats getting into the holiday spirit (and everything else). I’ve also included my cats, Harry, Hermione, and Stripey opening their cat advent calendar doors.
Today, August 28, is a very special day. Deb Barnes, Debbie’s friend and the president of the Cat Writers’ Association, created it to honor her Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, after he crossed the bridge and for others to honor their beloved pets who are no longer with them.
Here’s an article and a video that explains what this day is all about. I’ve also included some photos of Debbie’s cats, Oliver and Floppy, who are on the bridge and two of Debbie’s books, The Path to Rainbow Bridgeand Cloudy Rainbow, that deal with the loss of beloved pets.
Tomorrow is the Fourth of July here in the U.S. We cats, even us character cats, don’t enjoy this holiday much. It’s noisy and hurts our ears. Here are some videos with tips to help your cat keep calm during the celebration and also a special slideshow patriotic tribute featuring bloggers’ cats in their red, white, and blues. Have a safe and “paw”some Fourth!
