So, how come no one told me it was National Cat Day??
I better hurry up and grovel and beg my kitties forgiveness for not making a bigger deal out of it.
Or maybe I'll just pretend that tomorrow is the 29th.. they won't know the difference..
Just so you know, there are a slew of kitty themed National Days.. (list copied from http://www.gone-ta-pott.com/ )
