Hey guys. As you can see, I’m wearing my hard hat in my selfie for today. This is in honor of Labor Day which we celebrate tomorrow, the first Monday of September.

Cat wearing a hard hat

Labor Day was started by the labor movement as a way to pay tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. It was first recognized back in 1885 but didn’t become an official federal holiday until 1894.

Y’know…I dunno why they call it Labor Day because there’s not much laboring going on. It’s more like No Labor Day. Most humans have the day off to relax, enjoy themselves…and eat some barbecue…my favorite.

Okay…lemme let you in on a little secret. I’ve never had barbecue…ever. Which I think is quite unfair. Who cares if it’s a little too spicy for us cats? Just a little taste wouldn’t hurt…am I right??

  8. Yup I sure do agree with you about not much labouring going on. Times I phone up for service and I get no response. I mean don’t humans work past midnight???
    Anyways, great selfie Ernie, you sure look just the part of site foreman, or better still, architect! Have a great holiday and definitely give yourself a pay rise!MOL

  9. Oh, Ernie, you are so handsome in that hard hat! *swoon* Have a great holiday weekend!


  10. You look very handsome in your hard hat, Ernie. I hope you get some of the not so spicy barbecue. That was the only time Eric and Flynn would eat human food. Maybe they thought it was okay to because we ate it outdoors.

  11. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Ernie men in hats and bow ties make me weak in the knees but a man in a HARD hat OMCs if you had on a bow tie I might need CPR.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  12. You look great in that hard hat, Ernie. Happy No Labor Day weekend! 🙂

    Yeah, why can’t we cats have BBQ???

  13. Your looking swell. Happy Labour Day everyone.

  14. Doesn’t look like your taking it easy, but about to go out on an emergency work call! Is someone’s bowl empty somewhere?

  15. Great hat Ernie. Happy Labor day to you too. Hope you all have a great week end.

  16. Ernie, I agree, we should have some BBQ. I have no idea what it’s like. I like a bit of a kick to my food. Nip with bugs on it has quite the kick.

    You look like a real construction worker my friend.


  17. OH Ernie you fill a hat better than any mancat I know! What a great selfie!

  18. Don’t feel bad Ernie, I never tasted BBQ either…..oh and Mom and Dad are going to a BBQ today instead of tomorrow. Love, Cody

  19. Honestly, Ernie, I don’t think I want to try barbecue, ever… it might end in a butt bath for me the next day!

  20. There is definitely no laboring going on here 🙂
    You look very handsome and manly in your hard hat, Ernie!

  21. Hey, just tell ’em to give you the meat before they ruin it with the sauce!!!!

  22. It wouldn’t hurt a bit! I bet you could talk the peeps into a bite tomorrow 🙂

  23. look cute. Happy Labor Day!

  24. Ernie, you look awesome in your hard hat. I have an idea. The peeps should barbeque a little meat on the side with no spice just for you!

  25. All kitties have superior palate !
    If you said yes, it’s YES!

  26. Your Selfie is superb, Ernie, especially because you brought the hard hat in 😀 It really suits you <3 I think BBQ must be for everyone, and when I say everyone, I mean everyone 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy not Labour Day 🙂 <3

  27. Ernie you look like a HARD WORKER in your HARD HAT…….Mom says since cats mostly have HARD HEADS about doing stuff sometimes they shouldn’t – they still shouldn’t have BBQ because it might make them visit the litterbox all day long. We don’t wanna do that right? So just relax and enjoy your Labor Day with lots of naps and treats – skip the BBQ.

    Hugs, Teddy

  28. Maybe you will get some barbecue this year. We usually pull off a little chicken for our boys but try to avoid the outside where the sauce is.

  29. Ernie, that hard hat ROCKS!
    Cat food is what is best for you; human food is icky…

  30. You wear that hat well, Ernie. Who are those humans kiddin’. I agree, I think it should be called No Labor Day, ’cause I sure haven’t seen my humans labor anything today on the so called ‘Labor Day Holiday!’ Tee hee hee.

    Ernie, I haven’t had BBQ either. Mom and Dad are stingy when they have it for eats. It sure smells good though doesn’t it?!

  31. No Labor Day is definitely a better idea!!

  32. Oh Ernie you look spectacular in your hard hat. I bet Siddhartha Henry would have loved your selfie! I know I do….
    Have a wonderful no-labour Labour Day!
    (((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen

  33. Ernie, Jo Jo thinks you look cute in a Hard Hat. And the only person laboring around here is Mom,she has been cooking and cooking and cooking!
    And we had BBQ! It was OK, but Cinnamon likes it way better than us cats did.

  34. We almost snagged some spare ribs. Mommy went to visit Grandpa and Grandma for labor day and he sent some sausage (too hot for us) and spare rips (no sauce) home with her, BUT eldest boy kept the sausage and spareribs and only sent carrot cake home with Mom.

  35. That is the purrfect prop for a selfie this time of year!

  36. You’re not the only one who hasn’t had BBQ. My cats haven’t either.

  37. You look very handsum Ernie. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  38. You DO look like you mean business!
