National Tabby Cat Day: 30 April

Celestial Paddy O'Malley was the quintessential tabby cat; striped on the outside, dots on the belly, and was all purrsonality.

The following images were snapped 22 April, 2018.
Belly and teefs.

World Library Book Like Shakespeare with Dragon...

23 April

World Book and Copyright Day

World Book Day, as it is commonly known, is celebrated every year on 23 April. The events done to honor the day are organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to promote reading, publishing, and copyright.

U.S. Talk Like Shakespeare Day

Gives us the chance to speak like one of the most influential playwrights of all time — William Shakespeare, forsooth.

Dragon Remembrance Day

The legend of Saint George and the Dragon describes the saint taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices. We celebrate St. George's Day on 23 April — the anniversary of his death in 303 AD.  

Some of us grieve for the dragon.

Earth Day

As Earth is the only planet with cats that we know of, why are we treating her so very badly?

420

"420, 4:20 or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) is cannabis culture slang for marijuana and hashish consumption, especially smoking around the time 4:20 pm (16:20).

It also refers to cannabis-oriented celebrations that take place annually on 20 April."-Wikipedia

WARNING:
Marijuana is toxic to cats.

However, the exact toxic dose is unknown.

While the ASPCA reports marijuana toxicity is more common in dogs, cats make up about 3% of the marijuana toxicity cases.

Larry the Cat at 10 Downing Street

Larry, a rescue cat, is the Chief Mouser at The Prime Minister's Residence, London!

Read more about Larry here: https://www.npr.org/2023/02/16/1157507569/larry-cat-no-10-downing-street-british

Larry takes no guff from anyone.
The Prime Ministers who've served while Larry has been in office:

David Cameron: 11 May 2010 – 13 July 2016
Theresa May: 13 July 2016 – 24 July 2019
Boris Johnson: 24 July 2019 – 6 September 2022
Liz Truss: 6 September 2022 – 25 October 2022
Rishi Sunak: since 25 October 2022
(Lots of turnover!)

Larry began his employment on 15 February 2011, as companion animal to Mr. Cameron's children, but his talents in rodent control have kept him employed, and housed, at the residence.

You go, Larry!

Hope your invitation to the King's Coronation is in the post!

Arty Cats

An eclectic collection of cats involved with art and artists.
My friend's cat Gary sat on a palette of oil paints.
Found this online; I'm mostly sure it is NOT a Picasso!
Sidewalk chalk kitty...I think.
One never knows when cats and art will collide!
