Happy July 4th, Kitty Style

WAFFLES:  Happy 4th of July, Boss!

KATIE:  Waffles, you're a day early.

WAFFLES:  Ok, Happy 3rd of July?

KATIE:  The big celebration is tomorrow, on the 4th of July.

WAFFLES:  But you're wearing your star spangled sunglasses today, Boss.

KATIE:  And they're far more chic than that hat of yours.

WAFFLES:  So what's the big deal with the 4th of July, Boss? Besides cool hats and stuff.

KATIE:  July 4th is the day we celebrate our country's birthday, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Birthday??? I'm going to decorate for the party.  There's cake, right?

KATIE:  No cake, Waffles. It's not that kind of birthday.

WAFFLES:  No CAKE??? What a rip-off.

KATIE:  Waffles, not EVERYTHING is about food, you know.

WAFFLES:  Are you sure??

KATIE:  On July 4, 1776, our country's founders signed the Declaration of Independence and the United States of America became, well... the United States of America.  Each year we celebrate our nation's birthday with family reunions, potato salad and fireworks.

KATIE:  Now hurry up and get under the bed.

Happy 4th of July to all our US friends!
And a very special thank you to our Military Heroes– 
The Servicemen, Women & Animals that keep our country safe.

Please keep your pets safe too.
  1. Provide a safe and quiet room for them to comfortably hide during loud fireworks.
  2. Keep windows and doors shut. 
  3. Turn on some soft music.
  4. Use calming aids like Feliway sprays or diffusers.
  5. Just act normal. If you're stressed or show concern for your cat, they'll sense something is wrong.

WAFFLES:  I still say there should be cake.


  1. There *should* be cake. Maybe a chick-hen cake.

  2. I'm with Waffles. There should ALWAYS be cake

  3. Waffles, I would bake you a cake, but it is too hot in Texas to use the oven!

  4. I agree with Waffles - there's no reason there can't be cake!

    Our big fireworks show nearby was this evening, and my human shut the windows and turned on the air conditioner so the noise wouldn't bother us.

  5. There should be cake to go with the grilling!

  6. Glogirly you are such a good mama. Yes we need to keep our pets safe during festivities. Happy 4th of July my American friends!! And yes Waffles, there should be cake. Lol!

  7. I think there should be barbecue...lots and lots of barbecue. Happy 4th, guys! ~Ernie

  9. Cake sounds good to Ichiro too! He's always up for a treat.

  10. We agree, Waffles. There should be cake! Happy birthday, USA.

  11. Katie, you and our Angel have the same idea! Under the bed, or the dresser...or the claw-footed bathtub! It's been very noise 'round here. Happy Independence Day!
