We understand that humans like to get together on the Fourth of July and have picnics. I had to look that up on the internet to find out what it is. Basically it sounds like humans fix their food outside with all the bugs and flying things.
Why don’t they just eat inside and then go play outside?
I’m not sure. Maybe it has something to do with the cold weather that hangs around here so much.
Well, Mom could fix us picnics all the time. How hard is it to put our food in our dish and then take it outside for us?
Yes, she could do that but I don’t think she wants us outside that much.
That’s probably because you keep trying to sneak out the gate and Mom’s told you that it’s scary outside of our back yard.
Why do I get blamed for everything? Oh, another thing humans like to do is make all sorts of pretty colors go up in the air. I’ve seen them doing that the past few nights but I guess tonight is when there will be all sorts of pretty colors all over the sky.
Sometimes the noise bothers me, but I know Mom will keep me safe.
Let’s go see if Mom is up yet and if she’ll let us go outside and play before it gets too hot.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, EVERYONE!

Hemingway and Shakespeare, I hope you don’t think you can ever try to understand humans. And your Mom is right, the world is scary outside the yard, so sneaking outside the fence would be a bad idea. But maybe she can open the window and let you have your dinner by the window while the breeze is coming in so you can a pretend picnic. This way the bugs and flying things won’t bother you!
The pretty color in the sky is rather neat, don’t you think? I like it, but I agree about the noise. But your Mom will keep you safe, so you can cuddle up with her and watch them. They will be very pretty and you will enjoy them.
Have a very happy 4th of July with your special Mom, you very special cats!
Wow….we really like what you say. Yes, Mom is special and we are so glad she adopted us. We’ve been learning lots of things from her and her human friends. Now that we are “blogging” we’re learning even more. Humans are fun! Thank you for writing to us. We hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July!
