Cats Meow On World Book Day by Feline editor Clyde.
Hello dear ones on another Black Cats Tell All Monday. May I say how spiffy I feel or should I say sunny? Ah, the sun puddles feels so good. Yes, I do believe we won’t be having any more snow. Look what magically bloomed; an alchemy of sun, and the sunniest of flowers, daffodils. Just don’t nibble. They are toxic to cats.
There are odd, random holidays celebrated every day but no specific pet holidays today. But I couldn’t resist sharing or meowing about World Book Day. I often have my head in the clouds if not in a book. My fursibs will share about some other holidays and news.
Our cherry blossoms are in bud but a 5 measly minutes away, cherry blossoms popped over night. Go figure. The blossoming is so brief and there is no way to predict what the skies will be doing at peak times. Rain is coming mid week and by the weekend, this glorious show will be gone.
Savor what you can or carpe diem. Since I’m a night owl, I also say carpe noctem or seize the night. Take back the night and face our fears, the unexplored hidden side under the moon. Life is about duality: light and dark. It can’t always be sunshine, rainbows and catnip galore.
Go on, try something new. It also happens to be Take A Chance Day.
Layla and the boys enjoyed the cloudless skies while I prefered less outdoorsy activities.
Speaking of a breath of fresh , our featured adoptable is BOO who is in a foster home in Perth, Australia. @perthfosterkittens and our featured cat on Instagram this week.
In honor of our angel Merlin, I wish we could celebrate National Picnic Day. It’s still a bit nippy to dine al fresco, but Merlin was the king of picnics and connoisseur of blankies.
Odin is interested in International Nose Picking Day for obvious reasons. He always has dirt in his nose in the dirt from hunting in the garden. Layla has the thankless task of cleaning his dirty nostrils. Mind you, she cleans my ears and between my toes when kitty litter gets stuck. Actually she grooms me daily and brushes me several times a day. Brushing is bliss. Other grooming less so but you know how old men and old cats can be lax about such matters. White or light colored cats are easier to notice when look dirty. As filthy as Odin and Domino appear rolling in the dirt, they are spotless soon after. When any cat stops grooming, it’s a big warning sign that something is wrong. It could be an illness so please check with your vet.
Excuse me, I’d rather have my nose in a book. If you haven’t read mine ( I mean others) I will pawtograph it if you purchase directly. And last but methinks not last, t’is William Shakespeare’s birthday and Talk Like Shakespeare Day
Our weekly memorial garden progress report has little progress. Green somethings are sprouting and a marvelous mossy carpet is spreading.
Stay tuned for news of a very unexpected kind next week. Until then, all is well that ends well.
Love, Clyde, Odin and my too lazy to contribute fursibs, Domino and Nou Nou
