MY Special Day (February 22)
At this month's library staff meeting this morning, Boss Lady announced that we would be celebrating Cat Appreciation Month (February) by declaring a special day just for moi. I was really excited about that! My own special day, when minions wait upon moi hand-and-foot, satisfying my every need. Actually, isn't that everyday (or every second), as Sparkle the Designer Cat noted? Still, it's an honor just to be recognized.
When's the bigbash scheduled? Mark your calendars: Wednesday, February 22, 2012 is Cauli Le Chat Appreciation Day at my Library. Want to celebrate? Sure you do. Here's how.
Donate a can of cat food or dog food to the Library (sorry, cans only, please and thanks), which will be delivered to the Morgan County Humane Society (once we have finished collecting them, probably by month's end). Think of all the wonderful pets who need good homes. The extra food will certainly be most welcome, and you will enjoy that warm, wonderful feeling that only goodness from your heart can bring.
On February 22 "Flat" Caulis II, III, and V will be present for photo-ops with patrons. (I will be out roaming, as a good reporter should, to track down and deliver the news that you need and want to know.) There will be free commemorative bookmarks, if Scowl-Face gets off his duff to make some. There's bound to be more celebratory stuff. I'll keep you posted.
This is a great honor, Boss Lady. I am proud to have this day, and everyday, to serve my Library and our patrons.

P.S. Let's celebrate my day with another great song about felines. "Walking My Cat Named Dog" (1966) was a hit single for folk/pop singer Norma Tanega. In fact, it was her only hit, reaching #22 on Billboard's Hot 100 Pop Singles chart. Tanega was a camp counselor in the Catskills when she signed a recording contract with New Voice Records in 1966. Tanega wrote the lyrics to several Dusty Springfield songs. The two remained close friends until Springfield's death in 1999.
