Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day, everybody!  HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!

I know, I know...  I know what you're thinkin'.  You're thinkin', TOMORROW is actually Canada Day.  And do you know somethin', my friends?

Well, DO you?

Well actually, yeah, you do.  'CAUSE YOU WOULD BE RIGHT!  Canada Day is July 1st and not June 30th so yeah, Canada Day is tomorrow.


But the thing is...

The thing is, as Canada Day falls on a Monday this year, makin' it a long weekend and all, THIS Canadian Kitty has been celebratin' all weekend long.  That's right, my friends, I've been celebratin' All. Weekend. Long.


What?  What's that I hear?  Some of my non-Canadian pals are wonderin' what Canada Day is?


Well, Canada Day is the day every Canadian from coast to coast to coast celebrates me, Seville the Cat.  And they celebrate me with fireworks and parties and picnics and drinkin' and nippin' and...

What?  What's that, Peepers?  What's that you're babblin' on about now?

DON'T SAY IT.  I know, I could do without the fireworks.  I'm not quite sure why peeps celebrate me by settin' off those obnoxiously loud and scary ol' things, but...

What?  What's that, Peepers?  What's that you're babblin' on about NOW?

What do you mean Canada Day isn't a holiday celebratin' me?  What do you MEAN?

Well quite frankly, Peepers, I have no idea what you're talkin' about.  Every year on July 1st, in this house, we celebrate Canada Day, and the celebrations always seem to revolve around me.  Well, Saffy as well, of course, but I've been livin' here longer so they mainly revolve around me.  And as this is how things work in this house, it's a pretty safe assumption that EVERY house in the whole country, from coast to coast to coast, does exactly the same.  Besides, what else would they be doin?  What else?

They're celebratin' Canada, you say?


But I'm a Canadian, Peepers.  I'm a Canadian kitty, for sure.  So THAT'S why they're celebratin' me, and...

They're all Canadians, too?



Well I still think they're probably celebratin' me.


And regardin' these celebrations.  I'm not askin' them to send prezzies or anythin' like that, although prezzies involvin' the nip or treats or other nice things would always be graciously accepted.  'CAUSE IF THERE'S ONE THING I AM, IT'S GRACIOUS, for sure.  But I would ask that they consider gettin' rid of those horrible fireworks.  THAT is one thing I should probably demand.

I mean, ask.

I mean, request very politely.


But other than that...

But other than that - stoppin' those horrible fireworks, I mean - I'm good with the status quo.  You know, settin' aside a day just to celebrate me.


Very, very quietly.

To let me enjoy a nice little nap.


I'm nappin', Peepers.  I'm nappin!

You know, you'd THINK a peep would have a little more consideration for a kitty on his very special day.  On Canada Day.  On the day set aside just to celebrate him.




  1. You know the old saying, it is always Canada Day somewhere

  2. Happy Canada Day to you, Sivvers! We hope you, Saffy, and your Peeps have a wonderful time celebrating you (and Canada, too). XO

  3. Definitely demand quietly but carry a big cat nip leaf. At least that's what I think the famous saying is. Could be wrong. Or rather Mrs H could be wrong on account of her being a housekeeper and human. Happy Canada Day to you all. And may the postie bring you lots of cards, nip chocs and such like!

  4. Seville, every day of every year is a celebration of you, isn't it?
    Happy Canada Day.

  5. Happy Canada Day! I hope you are celebrated every day. XO

  6. Happy Canada Day! From an living in Michigan...hailing from Ontario,and I even lived in Halifax for a time...
    I hung out our Flag and then mowed the lawn..that was the only noise here...MOL!


I love hearin' from my pals. I really, REALLY do. PURRS.
