Sunday Veteran's Day

Happy Veterans Day Kitties and Woofies.  This is a day in which to be truly grateful for our freedom and to our Veterans who made it possible for us.  Without them, we would not be blogging like this.  Our unique Country would be different. There are many might-have-beens and too many to list here. We truly do honor our Veterans today and thank them from the heart when we see them. <3


And thank you Ann for the purrfect graphic for us.

I am going to have my easy on as soon as I finish zooming around. I also have to patrol at all of the windows because yesterday that long haired black cat (I don't know if it's a boy or a girl cat) was out there at the back of our fence line and I stayed alert and slightly agitated and on guard the entire several hours.  I kept telling mom that he was there but I did it in a small voice.  It was easy for her to know I was agitated but I was quietly so.  Not like with Ginger where I turn into a howling combatant.  I got exhausted because I had to stay awake for several hours to keep him in my sights.  So when he  finally left hours later, this was the result.

We remember and appreciate the veterans of our country also.
We are glad you are able to get some sleep at last after being on introoder watch.

We sure appreciate our veterans. And Katie, we are so glad you are working so hard to protect Mommy from all those introoders and good girl for being quiet about it. Hope you two have a super Sunday.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Katie, it is exhausting, protecting your home from all these intruders! Wouldn't it be nice if they just stayed away?

Madi and Mom said...

You take those WLF patrols seriously! Whenever I hear a dog run through our hall or even bark, I run to the door so I can defend the peeps if they try to come in.

Happy Veterans Day! What a blessing to have them and our great country!

It's hard staying vigilant for several hours. You did good, Katie! You definitely deserve that nap!

p.s. We blogged about the award you gave us yesterday.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The Human's dad was a Marine Corps captain who served 3+ years in the South Pacific and then was sent to occupy Japan. He's been gone for many years, but she thinks of him often and honors him specially on Veteran's Day.

Katie, darling, just pretend that black kitty is ME! You wouldn't be a-skeered of me!! Pretend I have come to patrol your house and keep you safe from introodurs.... you know, like certain ManCats I could name.

Mary said...

Well Katie! I'll just bet you needed a long nappie for sure! Having to stay on guard all that time is exhausting. No time for play or treats either. Hope you get lots of relaxation now that the stranger has gone.. for now..? :)

The Cat From Hell said...

Katie! Yous is quite the guard cat! Me is impressed!
We's remembers too!
Kisses
Nellie

Oui Oui said...

Thanks for the award Katie! We will post about it in the next day or two. You probably like black kitties better than orinj ones that's why you howl so at Ginger! Purrs!

We love our Veterans!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Every time I get upset with Stinky (the TNR cat), Mommy reminds me gently that I was an "introoder cat" for a few months before I had my own family. And Mommy says that there's the possibility that Stinky and I are somehow related...but, but, he STINKS and I never did even when I lived outdoors.

Love, Boomie

We join you in thanking the veterans for all their many sacrifices so that we can do things like be snarky kittehs online. Seriously - their sacrifices HAVE protected freedoms like that - and we are grateful.

Watching that black kitty must have been very exhausting. I hope you had good nap and rest :-)
