We are enjoying the peace and quiet of our backyard right now.
Mom said we have to be inside tonight when all the booming starts.
Starts??? It’s already been happening.
We don’t like it but it doesn’t seem to scare us.
Mom makes sure all the windows are locked and that big machine that blows cool air is on so we’re happy.
See what a good job I do at hiding? Nobody can see me!
Actually, I think I do a better job of hiding. I blend in with the cover!
Mom….is this the thing you use to make catnip burgers? Why aren’t you making any?
Did someone say catnip?
I love walking on the new deck! I think it shows off my humongous tail so perfectly.
Both of us and Mom want to wish all of you a very happy and safe Fourth of July! Please remember that we fur people don’t understand all the loud noises you humans make on this holiday. Many of us don’t like them and we are very scared of them. Think of us and do something to help us get through this terrifying night. Thanks so much!
We have to apologize for not taking time to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July. Blame it on Mom! She got home from work early on Thursday but she went out and started working in the yard. Then on the Fourth, there she was….doing the same thing! At least she had us outside so we were busy telling her what to do.
That night she said she was going over to visit some friends so they could all watch the fireworks together. We had no idea what she was talking about so we just stared at her (…as only we cats can do).
She told us to go around in the yard and look at all the colors and then imagine them up in the sky.
That’s just plain silly! But we wandered around and looked at colors.
We tried to imagine what they would look like in the air and we couldn’t get our kitty brains to work that way.
It’s another strange human thing!
Then Mom brought these photos home so we could see what the fireworks looked like.
Fine. Now we sort of understand.
Why don’t you just hang the flowers up higher and lie down on the ground to look at them?
Then you could celebrate the Fourth of July whenever you wanted!
Is Mom laughing????
