Did you know that Saturday, January 14th was National Dress Up Your Pet Day? Somehow, it totally slipped my mind and I forgot to mention it here. The photo above shows how I celebrated the day. Notice the distinct lack of dress up? Guess I wasn’t feeling particularly festive that day!
Sometimes I think humans come up with special holidays just to annoy us cats. Seriously, do any of you kitties look forward to February’s Pet Dental Health Month or Take Your Cat to the Vet Week, which happens sometime during August that I have conveniently forgotten? And what about the totally misnamed “Happy Cat Month?” You humans want to create holidays we cats will like? How about “Feed Your Cat Treats for Breakfast Day” or “National Cat Toy Month?” Now, these have a nice ring to them!
At least today’s holiday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, does not involve potentially humiliating or cringe-worthy feline activities. Some of you humans get the day off, which means you get to spend more time at your real job, catering to your cats’ every whim. Some of you will also use the day to honor Dr. King and the achievements of the civil rights movement. That’s cool. Just make sure dinner is served on time.
There is one holiday that I found rather intriguing. It comes up next Sunday and I’ll discuss it then.
