Stunning Fireworks on Independence Day
I’m celebrating July 4th with my red, white and blue smousy toys. Independence Day means many things to different people/species. As a holiday, citizens in the U.S. of A. celebrate our independence from the British.
Independence Day for me came on January 29, 2006, the day I declared my freedom from the little shelter in Hillsborough, NJ. It’s more commonly known as a Gotcha Day but once we leave their buildings, we also leave behind the confinement, the cages and the sorrow. We enter our new furever homes as rulers of our castles. We become the bosses and the humans best obey us. I purray between now and next July 4th, every shelter cat can celebrate their independence and leave their cages behind.
My peeps aren’t happy this 4th. Macy’s® has decided to screw them out of their semi-private fireworks show on the Hudson River. The powers that be decided for some warped reason to relocate the fireworks to the East River for the next five years! As you know, the peeps go out in the courtyard and enjoy the show with many of our neighbors. You can see a video she took with the Umpire State Building in the foreground last year on YouTube. The human singing in that video is some distant relative of TW’s. This year, unless they can see Jersey City’s display, they’ll be out of luck; but, hey, it’s gonna pour anyway. HAH!
Here’s a stunning fireworks display for them and you.
Have a safe 4th of July! More pets get lost on this holiday than any other so keep your fur children safely at home.
