It’s April 11th – Happy National Pet Day!

I said these words to our two feline residents and they were puzzled.

“What’s a pet?”  asked Benji.

“Um, well,” I replied, a bit startled by the look in his eyes.

“According to the dictionary it’s a tamed animal kept for companionship.”

“Tamed?” questioned Benji.

“Kept?’ asked Tiger.

“Are you planning to curtail our freedoms? You know how much we like the outdoors. At least when it’s not raining.”

“No of course not; you’re way too sensitive.  I just thought you’d want to celebrate, that’s all. Sorry I mentioned it.”

  1. Don’t tell Ollie is is National Pet Day. He has a Vet appointment at 4:30 this afternoon, and won’t enjoy that.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Hope you cuties get some extra treats today.

  3. Love this photo essay and captions. Remember the old saying “tamed isn’t the same as tame”? There’s a tiger still lurking behind those eyes — in the second from lowest photo!
