"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. I think this is one of the weirdest cat holidays! Or at least, the origins of it. The respect part is nice.

  2. You HAVE to read the articles I will send you about your kitty, and that means ME, too. One is called Does Your Cat Hate You? (NO) and another is about how over a billion kitties are on the planet and there will be more and that WE domesticated YOU!
    Love, Loulou
