Hemingway, can you explain to me again what Memorial Day is? I know Mom gets the day off from work but it has to be lots more than that.
Oh yes, it’s lots more than that. On this day humans make it a point to stop and honor all the men and women who have served in the armed forces. It’s those brave humans who help to keep this country free. If it wasn’t for them, maybe Mom wouldn’t be living here and maybe she wouldn’t have adopted us. Even fur people help keep this country free and we need to honor them as well. They give up so much so we can have freedom. We really need to celebrate and honor them EVERY DAY.
Thanks, Hemingway. Next year I’ll know what’s going on!!
Happy Memorial Day and a HUGE THANKS to all of our service humans and fur people who have served, are serving, and will serve to keep our country free. We love you!
In the midst of all the celebrating….
And cooking great food!
As I was saying…………we want to paws and thank all the men and women who are serving or have served to keep our country free.
We also want to honor all the fur people who have done their part in keeping catnip free.
Shakespeare! Can’t you be serious for a minute?
Well, my little heart is just overflowing with pride and thankfulness for all the service men, women and fur people and sometimes all that overflowing confuses me. I don’t know how to handle it so I resort to funny stuff.
That’s OK little brother. We know how much you appreciate everything you have. Let’s go see what Mom has planned for today.
Mom said we should take time from our busy day of playing, eating and sleeping so we could say thanks to all the humans and fur people who have given so much so we could be free.
We are very grateful kitties for all that we have. We know that some kitties don’t have freedom and some humans are scared every day of their lives.
We may not understand what it is to serve in the military, but Mom tells us that some humans and fur people have died serving our country. Because they made such a big sacrifice, we live in a free country.
Thank you for the freedom to enjoy catnip every day.
Shakespeare! Mom said to keep this serious.
I am serious!
Boy are we ever tired!
We sure are. Who would have thought that Mom having three days off would wear us out so much.
I think we mostly got tired just watching her work in the yard.
She did this but it’s out in the front yard and we can’t go out there. We told Mom to take a picture so we could share with our friends.
I was busy surveying some of the stuff she did in the back yard. I think I look so pretty among these plants!
I was kind of wondering who this other kitty is. I think I’m much more handsome than he is. He just sits there and doesn’t say anything. I sure hope he doesn’t eat any of our treats!
I have my favorite corner in the yard and here I am “hiding” in it. Of course Mom and Shakespeare both know I love this spot so they always know where to find me. Maybe I should look for a new secret spot.
I was just taking a nap and suddenly this plant caught my attention. I had to ask Mom if it smelled. She told me it was a wild rose and I should be careful. But she also said I might be smelling some of the orange and chocolate mint that’s planted nearby.
So that was our long weekend with Mom. We got to spend lots and lots of time outside and we’re pretty tired now. I told Mom we would get this blog done as quickly as we could, but I’m having a little trouble…………
Shhhhh……….don’t tell Hemingway but I found a quiet corner and I’m sound asleep. However, I wanted to make sure that we said a special thanks to all the service men and women who have risked their lives for our freedom.
Don’t forget the service dogs.
Right…….I wonder if there are any service kitties? We shouldn’t forget them.
Thanks to all who have given us the right to be ourselves and live free….even if we can only be in the back yard.
