Let’s all paws & celebrate National Cat Day

There are days when life, I mean the Internet becomes too intolerable to bear. Sometimes the bad days turn to bad weeks and I find myself wondering if this global social experiment we call “human interaction” is worth it. I mean really, how many times can a person read comments written by ignorant high school dropouts whose only  coherent thoughts are, “It’s Obama’s fault”, or be forced to see yet another picture of yet another Kardashian (how many are there?) without becoming unhinged? Now I get why Buddhist hermit monks live so long. At this point I think Nirvana must be a place absent of light, not a place of light. For without light we can’t see computer monitors. Peace at last!

I know other people who’ve been feeling the same way this week. Some who may need a break more than I, so when I found out today is National Cat day I knew I had to act! Sometimes when the din of the trolls and crazies gets to be too much at least we can all agree that the one positive outcome of the Internet are cats. Lots and lots of cats.  So as a nod to my beleaguered friends today’s post is not political or historical.

It’s just cats & it’s just for fun

  1. What a catastrophe, how did I miss National Cat Day? Maybe because it wasn’t International Cat’s Day? Anyway, goodish timing so soon before Halloween because of their identification as witches’ familiars. And I like them all, except perhaps the cats in costume: they don’t look too happy. But maybe that’s just because cats don’t like being laughed at when they look stupid. After all, they have felines — I mean feelings.
