So… as we understand it, our Mom’s been complaining a lot about us being skerred of all the boomie things outside for the 4th of July holiday (a holiday for what? boomie things??). What’s a bunch of cats to do? Hide under the bed? Already done that. Already counted all the dust bunnies AND given them names. Some have become livelong friends!
And then, just when we thought our lives would remain miserable with all the noise going on, our Mom forced us to like her even more than we already did because…
She made us a super fort! Please click the photo to enbiggen.
It’s big and snuggly and all of us can easily fit in there. We’re not in our fort right now because we’re lounging elsewhere, taking in the peacefulness that’s surely to be dashed away soon by loud booms. But we can hardly wait to race inside. Soon, our Mom assures us. Soon!
Mom stocked our fort with all kinds of things: A flashlight and books for reading because we like it when Mom reads to us. “The Stray Cat Handbook,” “I am the Cat, Don’t Forget That,” “Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes (our personal favorite),” “All My Patients Are Under The Bed,” “The Good, the Bad, and the Furry,” “The Itty Bitty, Kitty Committee,” “Kittens on Vacation,” and “I Can Pee On That.”
Yes, they are all cat-themed books. And… your point?
She also put all our best loved toys in there – all kinds of mousies, milk jug rings, kicksticks with silvervine and nip inside, our Molly doll, Tickle Pickles, even a feather or two! – and two ham-micks and some comfy blankets and a box with crinkly paper inside and even a bag of Greenie treats! What’s a fort without treats? A boring fort, that’s what kind.
Now, we’re just waiting for the biggest noisy night to begin so we can all scramble in there together, Mom included! Happy 4th of July! Celebrate safely and don’t forget to hug your pets!
