EVERY day is Cat Day

Apparently National Cat Day was October 29th and I missed it, so I guess that explains why Ferris Mewler threw up in my shoe.  In my defense, it was just World Cat Day in August.  Why do cats need so many days?  No clue.  But to make up for whatever I did to offend the cats I’m sharing the pictures I took of Ferris Mewler, who was ignoring me badly in spite of the fact that he would starve without me:

NOPE

Is it just me or is he flipping me off in that last picture?  Because I think he is.

This is exactly why people prefer dogs, Ferris.

  5. Cats supposedly have 9 lives (I am thinking they lied to us and secretly have more as a secret weapon toward world domination). So with all their lives they need many cat days to celebrate each life they have. Soon they will take over the entire calendar and we will have to worship them daily.

If you were wearing her skin, you’d be playing the long game, but seeing all the wonderful things this girl is saying, it seems pretty worth it.
