Everyday is cat day....they both remind me of that all the time.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on Wednesday

Hey Everyone - According to Wiki, it's national cat day!

National Cat Day was founded by Celebrity Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert and author, Colleen Paige and is a celebration that takes place on October 29th every year in the United States.[1] The National Cat Day website states that the holiday was first celebrated in 2005 "to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us." The day is supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit organization which also works to encourage pet adoption.[2] An international cat day was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare[3]

I think most cats, if asked, would say they were independents.  Or they would just roll over and go back to sleep.

Comment by booklover on Tuesday

I wish we could fix that, Joan!

Felaine, I LOVE your list of why cats aren't Republicons.

Living with a cat for the first time, you quickly pick up on its behavioral quirks, many of which are common among other cats. What you soon find out is that cats aren't Republican. Here are 12 reasons why not:

1. Cats are curious about what you do in your bedroom, but they don't try to legislate away your freedom to do it.

2. Cats may take away your cushion, but they'll give it back to you with a gentle push.

3. Cats give you attention and sympathy when you're sick.

4. Females are treated with importance in the cat world.

5. Cats make use of solar power, often all day long.

6. Cats lick their own problems and take care of other cats too.

7. Cats don't blame black and brown cats for their troubles.

8. Cats know how to ration their resources.

9. Fat cats are not at the top of the cat hierarchy, are not cat role models, and have more trouble surviving and thriving, not less.

10. While Republicans blindly follow authority, it is said that getting Democrats to act in unison is like herding cats.

11. Cats don't foul their own nest.

12. Cats are popular and well-liked on the Internet and elsewhere.

Mindy! I was able to retrieve this one too. There is something wrong with my system that I can't your photos and some of Ruth's. One day, the problem will solve itself and I will never know why I couldn't see your photo-comments. 

This photo is the kitty in a box with a cocktail.
