Ohai! Even though I’m wearing my lab coat, I am not a dentist. I’m going to tell you about a holiday — Friday November 28th is National Flossing Day. Gross, right?! Most holidays are fun, and you get to open presents or eat delicious food. Not for this holiday! National Flossing Day is a day when people are encouraged to consider the role flossing plays in their dental health. So if you’re a human, I recommend you brush and floss every day. This could be the worst holiday in the world! The only thing worse though, is having poor dental health. Read More »

I’ll bet you didn’t know that today is National Unfriend Day, or “NUD.” This is a day when you are supposed to “Unfriend” those Facebook users who are not really your friends. I enjoy making friends more than losing friends, so this is a confusing holiday for me. And because I’m an Indoor Cat, I am not allowed to go around outside looking for friends; this means that I have many online friends. Even though I have never met them in person, or gone to a party with them, or even lounged around the house with them, I still think of them as friends. Read More »

Ohai! You might think that as a professional model, I am a hard-working cat. You would be correct to think this. However, I also have lots of time to relax and just lounge around. You might not realize it (on account of I look so young), but I’m actually a senior, and I don’t mean a senior in high school. I am TEN years old! Since November is National Senior Pet Month, I’ll let you in on one of my secrets for staying so spry… Read More »

Dunce-Day-1
As you can probably tell by my lab coat, I’m no dunce! But did you know there is actually a holiday that celebrates dunces? It’s called National Dunce Day, and it’s observed on November 8th.

What exactly is a dunce? I looked it up in the dictionary, which said that a dunce is defined as “a slow-witted or stupid person.” Hmmm, that’s not too nice! In olden days, when a student misbehaved or acted like a dunce, as a punishment he had to wear a pointed hat called a dunce cap. The conical hat was supposed to funnel knowledge straight into the wearer’s head. Read More »

Since Halloween is just a few days away, I thought I would unveil my costume… Ta-Da! I’m the Great Pumpkin. Last week I explained the importance of getting a big enough treat bucket. Today, let’s talk about the importance of a good costume. First of all, if you do not enjoy dressing up, it is okay to skip the costume and just wear your furcoat. You can always accessorize with a festive kerchief or hair bow instead. If you do decide to wear a Halloween costume, make sure it’s comfy and easy to move around in. I like this Pumpkin Suit because it’s real puffy, and the color complements my fur.  Read More »

A small Halloween bag is a mistake

Besides choosing your costume, one of the most important parts of getting ready for Halloween is selecting your Halloween treat bag. I hope you have not already gotten your bag, because I have some important advice to keep you from making a dreadful mistake. See this bag? It is NO GOOD, on account of it is way too small! This candy corn bag is cute, but the goal on Halloween is to get as many treats as possible, so you obviously need a much bigger bag.  Read More »

I got this Crinkle Cat Tunnel to test out.  I will admit, at first it did not look like a very fun toy, on account of it was only a few inches long–I could run through this tunnel in less than a second. But then I realized that if you untie the sides, it expands real BIG! Read More »
