International Cat Day

This evening I was delightfully surprised to learn that today, August 8, is International Cat Day! I had no idea (which is surprising, being the avid cat-person that I am). Now that I'm aware of this special day, I'll be sure and mark my August calendar in the coming years!
I cannot imagine life without my cats. Yes, they DO require work and sometimes do make a mess (when a flower pot gets turned over and the dirt spills onto the floor*sigh*), but that's okay....BECAUSE they are part of my family now, and offer unconditional love (in addition to entertainment with their playful antics)
 
 
. I realize that some people think of cats as "arrogant, indifferent" creatures, but they are actually loving, smart, and affectionate pets. And each one has his/her own personality (or, maybe that should be PURR-sonality!).
So in honor of International Cat Day, I'm featuring a few photos of some of my precious kitties. My "furry children" are such blessings to me, and I'm so thankful that when God created our world, He gave us animals too!

I have to admire how clean the white one can keep her coat! I could never keep white clothes that clean. ;)

LOL Sandra---you're so funny!
Yes, cats are very clean animals (as I'm sure you know). ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Patti Jo

I didn't know about the International Cat Day either! How fun is that! I'm surprised Hallmark didn't get on that one and invite us all to send cards to cat owners!:) I have a Laura Frantz book interview/report on my blog! She is giving away an autographed book CatMom so I invite you to sign up! I have a feeing that you enjoy historicals and "Love's Reckoning" was fabulous!! I anticipate that "Love's Awakening" will be so also!! It is always good to stop in on your blog!! :)

Hi Susan! I'm also surprised that Hallmark didn't jump in and offer cards for Cat Day, LOL. ;)

I am going to visit your blog right now. And thanks again for stopping by my little corner!

Yay for International Cat Day! Your cats are beautiful, Patti Jo.

Our cats are sort of International--one is Siamese, one is Egyptian, and one is . . . um, well, not sure where an "ocicat" comes from. The US, probably!

I just started a blog myself! Only three posts so far, but I'm hoping to be more chatty in future. Great interview with Kim, btw. :-)

Hi Jill! SO happy to see you've stopped by--thank you! (and I'll be visiting YOUR blog too). :)

Wow, you really DO have some "international cats" there--and I'm curious about the ocicat--guess I need to google that one! ;)
