Wally and Ernie are talking

Hey Wally. It’s Labor Day today. What do you wanna do to celebrate?

Ernie, Labor Day is a holiday for humans…honoring the human workers and the contributions they’ve made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. It doesn’t really mean much to us cats. I’m gonna do what I do everyday…eat, sleep, play, and do my best to stay away from you…not necessarily in that order.

C’mon, Wally! We should do something fun. After all, Labor Day is kinda the unofficial end of summer.

Well, in that case, Ernie, I’m gonna soak up as many sunpuddles as I can because you know once summer is over, sunpuddles aren’t as plentiful.

And I’m gonna have some barbecue, Wally. Because holidays like Labor Day mean barbecue…and we won’t get much barbecue once summer ends.

Again with the barbecue, Ernie? Let me clue you in on something. We’ve never had barbecue…ever. The mom won’t give us any…so I don’t know why you keep bringing it up.

A cat can dream, can’t he?

Ernie, I think you should stay outta the sunpuddles. Your brain has been fried enough.

To all of you in the U.S. of A…Happy Labor Day! And to our Canadian friends…Happy Labour Day! And to the rest of you…happy Monday!

  26. Mmmm BBQ! Hope you all had a Happy Labor Day!

  27. Our human is going to put a pork loin in the oven in a little bit. But it’s not bbq. We love the smell of bbq even if we don’t eat.

  28. Happy Labor Day, Ernie and Wally! And yes, Ernie … a cat can dream, so dream BIG!

  29. Maybe you can find some smoked flavored cat food and pretend it is barbecue. I’ll keep an eye out for some. ♥ Happy Labor Day!

  35. Soaking up sunpuddles sounds like a great way to spend the day. But don’t fry your brain too much! 🙂

  36. Happy Labour Day boys and Zoey! Ernie, you can come over here and eat BBQ anytime you like! 😀

    the critters in the cottage xo

  37. OMC = you two have the best chats!

  38. That was a furry wise conversation you had going on there boys. With today’s sun and hot temps who would even think about the ending of sunpuddle season…we best be digging out heated nests and cozy blankies to rest upon during the dark days ahead…sigh…but wait we will get Indian Summer, there wil be warmth in the sunpuddles then…we hope!
