Three million humans are expected to attend the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks.
Five hundred thousand humans will be at the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular.
But the humans who are both rad and awesome are right here, checking out what went boom in the Tabby’s Place cats’ world this month.
Ah, the 4th of July. Our forefolks battled and tootled flutes so we could set meat on fire and blow things up. If you’re really lucky, your family has a tradition as patriotic as mine, in which, every year, we’d put watermelon sherbet in a hollowed watermelon rind, and watermelon chunks in a ceramic watermelon bowl. That’s right: the real watermelon in the fake watermelon, and the fake watermelon in the real watermelon, just like George Washington did.
Yet even all that isn’t what makes our county great. Cats make our country great. Especially these cats:
Promoted to Heaven: Nimbus, Janice
Stuff We Learned: Pistol-packing Annie knows how to light a Roman candle right under cancer’s tuckus. With not a mealy molecule of cancer to be seen in her latest ultrasound, Annie has two words for all dastardly, bastardly diagnoses: IT’S. ON.
