Kitty Kisses, If You Please
Had a spat with somebody you care about? You're in luck. Today (August 25) is Kiss-and-Make-Up Day. There's no reason to stay mad at anybody, unless, of course, you're a cat, and you've got a really good reason. But, then, we felines always have good reasons for everything we do.
There are several different types of kitty kisses.

Naturally, the best kisses come from kitties. If we honor you with one, you should feel privileged.
Now, it is common knowledge that humans, due to their superb ignorance of the feline condition, are constantly offending cats with silly behaviors. So they have a lot to kiss-and-make-up about, at least as far as we felines are concerned. Remember that a kiss goes a long way toward reconciliation; however, a can (or several) of tuna-in-oil goes much further.
