Today is not only Dr. Seuss' birthday but also Read Across America Day, so I sure hope everyone will take a few minutes out of their day to read something fun to their cat(s).

I wrote a poem to celebrate (and for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday).

The Lorax

Today is a day to celebrate reading.
It’s not something I do, but I hear it is pleasing.
It is known as Read Across American Day
And celebrates author, Dr. Seuss’, birthday.
I never met him but heard he wrote good books.
I think one was maybe something for cooks.
That book was called, Green Eggs and Ham,
And features a character named, Sam-I-Am.
He even wrote about a cat wearing a hat.
Can you imagine something as silly as that?
Today I am a dressed as a guy called a Lorax.
He seems to be a well-known environmentalist.
“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.”
Is a famous quote by this guy and now me.
For this reading day, the Lorax I’ll be
Instead of ginger tabby, Cooper Murphy.
If you can, go read a book and hug a tree.
You’ll feel great mentally and physically!

I even dressed for the part.

Best of all, my big brother, Mauricio, baked a cake in his Cat Scout Bake Shop for me to bring and share with you. Enjoy!
