What Everyday Should Be Called
October 29 (today, I'm thinking) is National Cat Day. Shout-outs to Sparkle the Designer Cat, whose keen nose for news alerts the world to all things feline. Well, it takes a celebrity to know these things, and Sparkle is a worldwide phenomenon.
Celebrate this most important of all holidays by treating your favorite feline to something special. We all know what I'd like. Name brands only, if you please. In oil, not water. Shaken, not stirred. (Wait--That's James Bond's line.)
Strangely, my Library has no videos honoring National Cat Day. (Minions, make it so.) But there are plenty available on YouTube. Here's a representative sampling.
Does that soundtrack to the second video sound familiar? It's "... And the Mouse Police Never Sleeps," by Jethro Tull, from the LP Heavy Horses (1978). We didn't use it as a musical closer, but we did use "One Brown Mouse" from the same album. (Is that why it sounded familiar? Just asking.)
A Great Day For Us Cats,

P.S. Since I'm sort of a library cat, on this special day I'd like to pay homage to the late Dewey Readmore Books, the world's most famous library feline. Visit the Spencer (Iowa) Public Library website for more information about Dewey.
