Friday Cat Blogging – 4 July 2014


I think it’s time to stop pretending there’s going to be anything to blog about this morning, and just get straight to catblogging. I was hoping for something patriotically themed, but that was a no-go. Domino is just not a dress-up kind of cat. So then I thought I’d get her to lounge in front of all the various goodies for tonight’s picnic. She wasn’t having any of that either. The best I could do was this tableau, which lasted about a second or two before Domino scampered away as if the Peeps were going to leap up and attack her. It’s just hard to get her in the proper spirit.

For the rest of you, though, have a lovely 238th birthday party.
