This came into my inbox last week and I had to do a double-take. Lying down? Walking? Chillin’ prankster style? Not too sure…
Today is Veterans Day, and I’m honored to hand it over to my cute little furry friend Daisy the Curly Cat, who has a great Veterans Day outfit on, along with a nice piece about this special day over on her blog.
I am wearing my most patriotic outfit, because today is a special holiday where we honor all of our military veterans. Here are some things I learned about this day:
It was in 1938 that Armistice Day was enacted as an official American holiday. But eventually after WWII, citizens felt that the veterans of all wars should be recognized, not just those of WWI. So in 1954 Congress changed the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. In America, the holiday now celebrates the approximate 2.9 million U.S. veterans with parades and ceremonies among other events.
Thanks for the great info, Daisy, and for the beeyootiful pictures!

A dog sent this to me. I have not tried it yet with Tailer. I am a little skeptical. But here you have it:
How to wash a cat:
1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl.
2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close the lid. You may need to stand on the lid.
4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a ‘power-wash and rinse’.
6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift the lid.
8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.
Ed. note: This is, I do believe, a joke. Do not attempt this at home. ;-)
