A 4th of July Birthday Wish from Kizmet to America

Kizmet is using my head as a pillow. He lives for these happy moments and so do I.

Kizmet is an “I’m happy if I can be sleeping on my beloved human’s head,” kind of cat. Politics is not his thing to pontificate, nor as his human, is it mine. However, with today the 4th of July, 248 years since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, it’s hard not to think of politics as America ponders its future.Β  Today is also Kizmet’s 12th birthday and the only wish he has, is the same one I have: regardless of where you stand, or what your beliefs are, we hope we can come together as a race, with compassion, empathy, tolerance, and fairness.

Happy 12th Birthday, Kizmet!

Take care everyone, and be safe. And don’t forget,Β  the 4th of July can be a rough, scary, and dangerous time for our feline friends. Please visit here for my previous post on how to keep our cats safe and secure during the 4th of July festivities and the hot, summer days.

Kizmet from November, 2012. This was a few days after we adopted him from Pet Supermarket (he had been found, abandoned on the side of the road as a kitten).

    Happy YOUR Day, Kizmet … such a sweet and beautiful photo of you and your Mommy. We, too … try to stay away from being “pawlitical”, especially on our blog, though in these times find it a bit harder, and today had to comment just a bit, sharing your concerns.

    Happy 248th, USA! As fragile, fractious, and flawed as it is, it is still the best the nations of the world have been able to come up with, and I, for one, pray that our democracy is as valued by most as it is by me.

    Happy PURRthday, Kizmet! Stay safe, comfortable, happy, well cared for, and LOVED! <3
