So today’s the day. Total Eclipse Day. The first time in 38 years that a total eclipse of the sun is happening in the US of A. Of course, there’s just a narrow band from South Carolina to Oregon where you can actually see the total eclipse. Here on the island…we’re only expected get around 80% of it. But it’s still a cool thing to see.
All the humans are going kinda bonkers over this eclipse and they’re having eclipse parties and eclipse sales. Eh…just another day for us cats, right? ‘Cept the experts say the eclipse may affect nocturnal animals. When the moon blots out the sun, it will seem like nighttime…which means nocturnal animals…like us cats…may become more active. So instead of napping like we usually do in the middle of the day, we might be up looking for food or wanting to play. Or so they say. Purrsonally, I kinda doubt it. I know I’ll be getting in my 16 hours of napping no matter what the sun and moon are doing.

Happy Eclipse Day! Remember…if you’re gonna watch…don’t look at it without wearing these special eclipse viewing glasses. Oh yeah…don’t wear them like this.
