"R-E-S-P-E-C-T...Find Out What It Means To ME!" #NationalRespectYourCatDay


Hi all it's Cody!! Yes, yes, yes, I KNOW that ALL of you are going to say that cats should be respected EVERY DAY and YOU ARE RIGHT!!!  Respecting cats shouldn't be just one day a year at all, I couldn't agree more! But because March 28 is a historic day for me and my feline friends, today is the day that was designated as National Respect Your Cat Day because allegedly,
 on March 28, 1384, Richard II of England forbid the consumption of cats. Why anyone would want to eat a cat anyway is beyond me, but I digress...

So, in honor of this momentous occasion and as a reminder to my Mom EVERY DAY, here is a little somethin' somethin' which will hopefully get through to my Mom for something that SHE does that I take issue with,  AND make YOU laugh!!! My deepest apologies to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin for taking some liberties with the lyrics to RESPECT.








Kitties what kind of EXTRA respect do YOU need shown to YOU today!!! I know we are shown respect EVERY DAY by our humans, but we can always use MORE!!!

Discuss!

Love, 
Cody

  1. MOL, Cody! I have to say, I didn't realize that Respect Your Cat Day had a history - I thought some human just made it up off the top of his or her head!

  21. All right, Cody! You told mama, didn't you? :-) My kitties would probably say that I don't pay enough undivided attention to them. When I'm on the computer, they sometimes "misbehave" to get my attention. Maybe I should just let the computer alone until they're asleep.

  22. I hope you got lots of respectful belly rubs, Cody. My mum should respect me more when I tell her I don't like the supper she has given me. She should put down 6 different flavours so I can check if there is one that I like.

    ReplyDelete
  23. MOL! What a great song! There's no question that song should get you some extra respect around there.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would pay to see you in concert, Cody! I think the kitties at my house would like the same sort of respect as you. Pup Astrid better move aside.
