Happy Peepers' Day


I know, I know...  I know what you're thinkin'.  You're thinkin', there's no such thing as Peepers' Day; and do you know what?  You would be right.


MOUSES!


But the thing is...


The thing is, even though today is actually MOTHER'S Day, I don't really remember my mama, so all I've got is a peep.


MOUSES!


Now to be perfectly honest, I'm not quite sure why I'm celebratin' Peepers' Day, anyway.  I mean, what's there to celebrate?  Oh sure, she feeds me and keeps me safe and all that stuff, but...


But she also takes me to the vet.


And you ALL KNOW how I feel 'bout vets.


MOUSES!


She - aka Peepers - also makes rules.  Rules that are stupid as stupid can get.  Don't knock over the plants.  Don't eat the plants.  Don't pee on the plants.  You know, that sorta thing.


Like I said: STUPID.


MOUSES!


And what's more...


What's more, she went and brought Saffron into the house.  So now, not only do I have a couple of good-for-nothin' peeps, but I've got a brother as well.


MOUSES!


And just 'cause it's Peepers' Day, I'm supposed to buy her a prezzie?


Pffft.  Well I thought 'bout givin' her flowers.  I thought about doin' that, I say.  But she has lots of flowers, already.


So I fertilised her flowers, instead.


MOUSES!


But...  But...  But...  But what's the point of a day just for Peepers?  I mean, WHAT IS THE POINT?  It's not like she doesn't get to do what she likes the rest of the year.  Peepers, like most peeps, pretty much does what she likes, whenever she likes, like...  Like whenever she feels like doin' it.  Is she not actually celebratin' Peepers' Day, EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR?


And just who does she think she is, that ol' peep of mine, doin' whatever she likes any day of the year?  Who the mouses does she actually think she is?


DOES THE WOMAN THINK SHE'S A CAT?


The nerve, I tell you.  The nerve!


If you ask me, today should be a day set aside for the celebratin' of cats.


Or me.  Yeah, it could be just a day for celebratin' me.  Me, Seville the Cat.  A day called Seville the Cat Day has a nice ring to it, for sure.


Of course, every day is kinda Seville the Cat Day 'round here.


Just as it should be.


MOUSES!


So...


So HAPPY PEEPERS' SEVILLE THE CAT DAY EVERYBODY!


Yeah, that sounds about right.


MOUSES!
