Redheads Should Celebrate, For Sure
Today (November 5) is National Love Your Red Hair Day. You can look it up. Here, too. The Lady With the Red Hair, who is head of Technical Services at Greenwood (Indiana) Public Library, and volunteers (and offers craft programs) at my Library, should definitely celebrate. So should Tober, Boss Kitty at Thorntown (Indiana) Public Library. As always, click the photos to bigify.

I, of course, have black hair (humans call it fur), but I know many feline red-hairs. "Fur" instance, there's Tober (see above), as well as Biscuit, one of my home pals, and Oliver, children's catbrarian at Clinton (Indiana) Public Library. Don't forget Porter C. Bibliocat at Anna Porter Public Library in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Advertisers recognize the selling power of redheads, especially when combined.
Two is better than one
Naturally, this excludes unnatural kitty redhairs, such as this faux-red-furred feline.
You're not fooling anybody, I hope you know
How should redheads celebrate today? For the humans, chocolate is always good. For us felines, some kitty treats or my personal favorite, canned tuna-in-oil, unless your V-E-T has restricted your diet to exclude tuna products.
Then there are the big celebrations where redheads congregate and have great fun.

Maybe your favorite library should put up a book display featuring redheads, including, of course, Clifford the Big Red Slobberdog, created by Norman Bridwell, who grew up in Kokomo, Indiana.
Natural or artificial color?
If that's not Clifford's natural hair color, I certainly won't be telling him. Who needs a gigantic slobberdog angry at moi?
Enjoy your day, redheads! You rock!
