Barnie and Quincy Celebrate National Cat Day

October 29th has been designated National Cat Day. I’ll be honest. Every day is Cat Day at my house.

Barnie and Quincy welcome each new Cat Day sometime between 12am to 3 am, chasing each other up and down the stairs, running crazy through the house, and finding loud or crinkly things to play with.

Then they retire for the next 20 or so hours, each day spent much like this:

Purl is left to wonder…

Purl Celebrates National Dog Day

It is hard to keep track of all of the pet-related ‘holidays’ these days. Today is National Dog Day – apparently the 10th annual day of dog love and celebration.

Feeling Festive

Purl decided that a day as big as National Dog Day called for her best finery.

The first thing I see in the morning.

Wearing a drape on her head doesn’t seem to bother her in the least.

Ahem – you can stop laughing at me now.

I will say that Purl dressing herself up in the curtain was a LOT less work than the reindog hats.

This can’t be comfortable

Have you ever looked at your peacefully sleeping pet and wondered how that pose could ever be comfortable? Especially getting up and moving afterwards?

Me too.

Exhibit A: Sleeping Argos

I wouldn’t be able to walk for several hours after waking if I slept like that. Barnie agrees.

Then there was a cookie-dispersal or other kitchen attraction, and dog bed occupations shifted. Purl grabbed this dog bed, but wasn’t fast enough(!), and had to split the bed with Barnie.

Finally Purl took off for the Best Dog Bed Ever, aka the couch.

Barnie rejoiced.
