Scooby the cat nip nana

National Cat Day USA 2015

It is National Cat Day USA again!  Seems like I just did a post on this!  I searched this blog and found it has been an entire year gone by!  Presents came in the mail yesterday.  We received several catnip bananas or nip nanas or nip naners, if you will.  I have seen these bananas on other cat blogs, and finally decided to get some. We also got some new collars.  Later today we shall see if Scooby objects to a new collar with his new county pet license tag.  He also got a personalized tag as well.  Other cats got new ones as well, so this afternoon we shall put them all on.  Zeke went to the vet early and got a perfect bill of health; while Opie went for a dental clean and hair mat removal.  She will be picked up later this afternoon.  Hopefully all will go well.  She has the worst teeth!

At any rate, here is Scooby enjoying his nip nana.  It may be his first!

National Cat Day USA 2014

National Cat Day falls on Oct 29 every year here in the USA.

Today I shall mention National Cat Day. It was created in 2005 by Colleen Paige. She wanted to draw attention to all the homeless cats in the USA that need help and new homes. Many millions of feral cats roam the country. A million or more are killed in animal shelters, because they cannot find homes for them all. Animal shelters are reducing adoption fees on cats, or eliminating them altogether today, to stimulate the adoption of cats today. Cats and their contribution of human society should also be celebrated!

Marigold I got from an animal shelter. Opie and Zeke were from a litter of feral cats, I took home.

Today we begin with extra tasty breakfast for all. Later, toys will be distributed and dangled! Catnip will be dispensed! Let the festivities begin!
