I Appreciate That
Thanks to the alertness of my pal Sparkle the Designer Cat, I'm reminded that February is Cat Appreciation Month. What should my Library do to celebrate all things Cauli? I mean, all things feline? Well, I have some ideas, but I'd appreciate your suggestions in the comments section of this posting.
I Appreciate a Head Scratch (Purr, Purr)
Maybe Boss Lady should select a day in February to be declared Cauli Le Chat Day at MPL. Patrons could receive buttons featuring my picture, puzzle games for the kids (you may have seen an example here, here, and here), authentic pawtographs from moi, and other valuable goodies. I get the kitty snacks, however.
Let me know your ideas, and I'll post them in an upcoming blog. Certainly, canned tuna-in-oil will be involved.
Thanks, Sparkle, For the Heads-Up,

P.S. Petula Clark released "The Cat in the Window (The Bird in the Sky)" (1967) as a single. The song was also covered by the Turtles (see below). Clearly, producer Sonny Burke was aiming toward the "easy listening" audience in the song's orchestration and overall mood. It peaked at #26 on Billboard's Hot 100 Pop Singles Chart.
P.P.S. Compare Petula's version with the Turtles' cover of "The Cat in the Window (The Bird in the Sky)," which was included on the album Wooden Head (1969), an LP collection of single B-sides, rarities, and previously unreleased material. Which version do you prefer? Comments, please and thanks.
