Respect Your Cat DayMarch 28, 2013
It’s Respect Your Cat Day! A little-known holiday commemorating the date when in the Year of Our Lord One Thoufand Three Hundred Eighty Four, Richard II of England did iffue an edict forbidding the confumption of catf.
It might not be a big deal to you, but around here, Selina’s cats Whiskers and Nutmeg are (by far) the most popular original characters in Cat-Tales. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve been asked “which story it was when… they came to the manor and Whiskers is excited that he found that cave smell they associate with Bat-Bruce from all his visits to Selina’s apartment (It was Splitzville), when Nutmeg conquered Alfred so completely with her silent miaow (also Splitzville), when Whiskers followed Bruce into the cave passage and was scared witless by all the flying mice (Strange Bedfellows) or when the feud was established between Whiskers and Batman’s cape because it kept brushing against his favorite plant on the terrace and messing up the leaves where he played “Stalking Jungle Cat of Death” (I really couldn’t tell you, it’s referenced in a lot of tales.)
So anyway, Respect Your Cat Day is something we like to observe. Pictures are yours for the taking. Let all those who don’t eat cats feel free to like and share.
