Today in Cat History

On December 7, 1962, Tippytoes Clark, a calico from Johnson City, Tenn., drank treated Christmas Tree water "because it tasted funny" and threw up. Tippytoes was taken to the vet, got shots, pills and had to spend the night.

Professor Whiskers' says "a warned cat is an aware cat" so don't drink tree water. It may have chemicals in it or be yukky.

Whistle, going for an A in American Cat History

Good word there. About time someone started publishing our history.
Maybe we should lobby for an official "Cat History Month" each year.

An official "Orange Cat History Week" would be appropriate too. Didn't Ben Franklin and Paul Rever has orange cats?

Very good advice. Of course, my people don't have to water their Christmas tree. The kind that gets watered makes Napper sneeze.

If Tiggie can ask for an "Orange Cat History Week," can I ask for a "Snowshoe Siamese Cat History Week?" Gee, that was sure hard to purrrrrr. On second thought, I guess that wouldn't work, since we Snowshoes are a mix of Siamese and something.

Tiggie foc? spooky? We cats are one. "Out of many, fabulous cats" is the official motto of Catdom.

Is there any cat more beautiful than another? No way!

Gingers, calicos, tuxedos and snowshoe siamese are all part of the beauty of Cat-osity!

You are right. I guess the Siamese part of me came out...I should not be so vain. We are Cats. We are beautiful!

I found more proof of our historical importance! I put up a photo at my blog.

Your tree has water? Huh. Ours does not. T.O.C. says it is the same tree every year. Maybe they pick it up and put it back in dirt and bring it back in every year?

It doesn't smell like tree though. It smells like... I don't know. Paper? grocery bags?

most confused.
