Oooh! Aaah!

Ooh! Aaah!

Mr. Sunshine isn’t really watching fireworks, he’s watching a moth inside the swag lamp, but it’s cute to think so.

Actually all five black cats disappeared as the neighbors lit firecrackers now and then, and later Carnegie’s fireworks lit up the sky a distance away (on July 3). Kelly hid in the entertainment center, but Cookie, who is pretty deaf, stayed on her cabinet in the kitchen.

I have a bi-fold door to the basement, and a small rectangle cut out of one lower corner for them to access the basement. I walked into the kitchen after the fireworks were over and suddenly basement cats where flowing out of the hole in the door—all five of them came up one after another with big round eyes, ready to run back down at the slightest “bang”. I gave everyone treats and catnip.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.
