I bet most of you are surprised to see Ernie here today…and on top of the ladder, too!  Well, today is Black Cat Appreciation Day.  And, y’know, even though he can be a real pain in the butt sometimes, Ernie is my favorite black cat!!  So to show my appreciation, I’m letting him have the top of the ladder all to himself…for today only!!  Don’t get any ideas, Ernie!  The top’s still mine!!

(Check out Ernie’s whisker humps in honor of Kismet, the original mancat, who recently went to the Rainbow Bridge.)

Yeah…right, Wally!!

See!  I told you he can be a pain in the butt!!  I wonder when Orange Cat Appreciation Day is….

Taffy (lilac with white) insists on being an only kitty, so I promised her she would be with me.
