Cat World Domination Day
Has there EVER been any doubt who runs the show? Anyone who has a cat knows the situation and those of us who are the cats in charge never had any doubt!

Happy Father's Day from Rosie
Happy Fathers Day Dad
Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day!
It's the day that we celebrate our Dads.........our human Dads, or our cat Dads if we know who they were, and in my case, it's my Human Dad. Probably the only Dad I've known since I was a feral cat of 11 months when adopted. My Dad is one of my two BESTEST friends (the other one is Mom of course!).
Happy Father's Day from Me and Angel Sammy too!
With Love From Your Boys........
Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day to all the Cat Dads and Human Dads. Noelle didn't know our Daddy but I did and miss him a lot. Daddy and I used to spend a lot of quality time napping!

International Box Day with Rosie
Happy International Box Day!
International Box Day with Bunty
International Box Day
Hello Fellow Tabbies! Today is a BIG day in the blogosphere - International Box Day celebrating how much kitties (most kitties that is) love a nice box to play or sleep in.
Know what? I'm not one of those kind of kitties! I have never hopped in a box - no matter what size or shape or nice smells might be inside. My Mom says I must not have the "box gene".......I think the problem is I never got to appreciate boxes - as a feral I was just not exposed to the joys of a good box. My Mom said she was so excited to introduce me to boxes when she and Dad adopted me at 11 months old from the shelter but.................nope - not interested. The closest I've ever been to being a box fan is with Cat Scouts when we had to make a vehicle to have a Cardwood Derby competition......then Mom used a box for a "make a boat" competition with Cat Scouts. Even then, I was forced (yes forced!) to hop in the box for a second - long enough for a quickie photo.
Sigh. Well, I still am happy for all of you kitties who love a nice box - so I wish all of you a very happy International Box Day!

Today is Flag Day. Our little town has a special tradition that starts every year on Flag Day. It's called the 21 Day Salute to the Flag. Volunteers raise the flags every day starting on Flag Day and ending on Independence Day as 47 flags join the three permanently placed flags on the property to represent all 50 states.
At 7:30 each morning, volunteers raise all 47 flags of the salute and retire them at 5:30 p.m. This process takes about 15 minutes and at least six volunteers are involved. The first Flag Salute was conducted in 1987. Here I am helping get the flags out at City Hall.
Today is a special day - it's FLAG DAY! Our flag is an important symbol and I found some interesting history online about our beautiful red/white and blue:
When the American Revolution broke out in 1775, the colonists weren’t fighting united under a single flag. Instead, most regiments participating in the war for independence against the British fought under their own flags. In June of 1775, the Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia to create the Continental Army—a unified colonial fighting force—with the hopes of more organized battle against its colonial oppressors. This led to the creation of what was, essentially, the first “American” flag, the Continental Colors.
For some, this flag, which was comprised of 13 red and white alternating stripes and a Union Jack in the corner, was too similar to that of the British. George Washington soon realized that flying a flag that was even remotely close to the British flag was not a great confidence-builder for the revolutionary effort, so he turned his efforts towards creating a new symbol of freedom for the soon-to-be fledgling nation.
On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress took a break from writing the Articles of Confederation and passed a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white,” and that “the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”
Over 100 years later, in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson marked the anniversary of that decree by officially establishing June 14 as Flag Day.
At my house we have a special flag - it's the one that draped my Grandad's coffin when he was buried at Arlington Cemetery in 1992. It's in a wooden case in my Mom's office.
But ANY flag is special. It's a symbol of freedom and everything our country stands for.

Hug Your Cat Day
Mommy says I am not fond of being hugged. I don't mind being petted but not a fan of hugs.
Mommy tried to get a picture of her hugging me quickly this morning and I moved so all there was on the camera was an orange blur.
Love you all, Bunty
We Hug our Daddy
|Me and Dad like cuddling. Every night I lay on his leg and he gives me a head rub. Sometimes I climb up for a bit extra. This is the good life fur sure|
|Daddy is so nice to me I like to get in his lap. Shhh it's our secret that he likes me best.|
Hug Your Cat Day
Happy International Hug Your Cat Day!
Mom says everyday is hug your cat day.
Just love these two folks.
Hug Your Cat Day!
Time To Hug!
It's National Hug Your Cat Day
Even though it's a special day of hugs I must say that I purrrrrsonally am not a very "huggy" cat. Mom says it's a shame I'm not though because I LOOK very huggable. However, when I was very first adopted into my wonderful home I was so happy to have humans in my life that I allowed some hugging! So, for today's celebration I do a couple of flashbacks of "HUGS OF THE PAST"....
I am a lucky boy and all of us who have forever homes are - but some of us just don't have the "HUG GENE" in us I guess. If you can get some hugs today - GO FOR IT!
