As you celebrate today, please remember that this can be a scary and dangerous holiday and not just for us kitties. Please keep children and pets away from all fireworks. Every year, humans are injured and fires are started by improper handling of fireworks.

Our pawrents always watch our city’s fireworks from the safety of home. (The center photo of our collage was taken by our dad from the deck above our catio.) We remain safely in the house with all the doors and windows closed.


Celebrating Our Freedom


We have chosen our angel brofur, Madison, and Astrid to represent us today as their furs look stunning with the addition of the USA filter from Dreamscope.

As America celebrates the 240th anniversary of the signing of The Declaration of Independence, we are proud to be Americans and members of this great nation. Below is a copy of the document that made it all possible.



Wishing you a safe and sane holiday, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Happy Independence Day, dear friends. It’s been booming outside, but things seem to have calmed down now. Gracie and Zoe have been real troupers … snuggled up with us on the couch.

Happy Fourth Of July!!

Its bone dry here, and yet peeps insist on these purrvate booming pawrties…sigh…

Do you need earplugs?? Meowmy has lots of them…from being at the Thunderbirds and official fireworks on Saturday. They are staying home from all that noise and hubbub today…(there is another official display tonight.), they were there evfurry day since Wednesday, MOL! Today they want peace and quiet and a nice home cooked meal…picnic food is good, esp if its free (Pawppy gets free tickets on account of his involvement to get this festival ready…)but one can get too much of a good thing!!
We sometimes can even see those big red white and blue birds here when they regroup, and sometimes even the balloons will fly ovfur our den!

We are planning to see the Washington DC fireworks on TV tonight. Then we won’t have to dodge traffic, MOL! We like their music better too…rock music as purrvided by the venue here is way too raucous!

NJ is one of 3 states where private fireworks are banned. We here a few but not many. Tonight is it doesn’t rain, the peeps will go out to watch the Macy’s show but that’s only loud outside. I’m glad your peeps have one to watch out your window. Have a happy and safe Independence Day.

Happy Independence Day to all of you! We are fortunate kitties that we hear (and sometimes see) fireworks all the time, so tonight won’t be a big, scary deal to us. For all the kitties who aren’t used to them, hang in there, this long, firework-y weekend is almost over.

Happy 4th my Kitties Blue friends……….we will be INSIDE all day today as it’s raining and we assume there will still be those who do fireworks tonight but we’ll just be HEARING them and NOT pawticipating……they are dangerous and we worry about the wandering anipals who have no choice but to be outside with no shelter. Here’s to the land of the free and the home of the brave……long may the red/white/blue wave!

Love, Sammy

Cool Independence Day art! We are inside with the air conditioner on! Because we live in a hilly fire area and humans are stupid, my human is staying home with us for the Fourth.
