Know what tonight is?
It’s Tuesday night and it’s too early for treats.
You always have food on the brain. It’s “National Night Out”.
What does that mean? Why aren’t we outside? Does everyone go out? Why didn’t Mom tell us about this? Does that mean that everyone stays outside all night? I would get scared when it got dark. I don’t think that’s a good idea.
I listened to the news tonight and they talked about it so I know a little more than you do and if you’ll stop talking and listen, you’ll learn something.
You’re older so you’re supposed to know more so you can teach me.
Right! Anyway, this is the night where humans get together with their neighbors. They usually have food…..
Now I’m REALLY upset that I didn’t know about this!
As I was saying……..they get together and talk about safety and how to keep their neighborhoods safe from the bad guys. They learn how to protect each other.
That sounds like a great idea!
I was thinking that if all the pets on this block got together for a “Night Out”, we could help the humans keep the neighborhood safe. We could practice our growling and barking techniques and learn how to keep all the bad animals away.
And we could have food!!!
Whatever. I’m going to tell Mom about my idea.

Shakespeare, your tail! It looks like a blanket for Hemingway!
My tail is my plume!! I know Hemingway is jealous.
Hi, My name is Sushi and I cannot type but I sure can tell my MOM what to type. All I have to do it bat my eyes and purr and she is putty in my paws.. My brother Neko and I will be following your adventures here. We do not get to go outside so your bird chasing, bug eating and just plain exploring will be so fun for MOM to read to us.
Now did someone say there is catnip?
Hi Sushi! Nice to meet you. Please say hi to your brother Neko, too. Mom got us typing at a very young age so we’re becoming old pros at it. We are almost always in front of the monitor. Mom gets upset with us when we get in the way. For some reason she seems to think the computer is hers! I hope you enjoy our adventures with us.
