Sometimes 28 days can feel like the longest month of the year.
This was no ordinary February.
This was the kind of February that makes grocery stores display 15′ towers of Mallomars.*
This was the kind of February that makes radio stations play songs like Heatwave and that great symphonic masterpiece Hot, Hot, Hot! to mock and/or encourage us.
This was the kind of February that finds you shivering in the dairy aisle with your last nerve frozen off, wondering, am I too old to buy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles GoGurt?
These were the times that tried our souls.
But amidst all that ice and cold and Mallomar shame, this was also an extraordinary February for cats. This was the kind of February in which this happened:
Returned: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ONE (bellowed like Gandalf, a la “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!“)
Promoted to the Community Room: Chrissy, Alaric
Promoted to the Lobby: Angel
And so, kittens, take heart. Although the snow looks like burnt marshmallows today, Lucky Charms are coming. Should you need a hint of joy’s return, our cats are ever eager to shower and flower you with unstoppable life.
*For reals. I almost took a photo for you.
**Yes, that Ruby.
***Yes, that Natasha. Snow or no, February was cool for cats.
