Thursday, October 29th, 2009 is National Cat Day. My own kitties, Starsky & Hutch (named after the original TV show, not that ridiculous movie) wouldn't ever let me forget it if I didn't mention it. They are a constant source of love and amusement for me. They have been brought up on the blues, and bless their purring little hearts, have become somewhat of blues purists. Case in point - on Wednesday nights, they will sleep peacefully through Scott's Texas Blues Radio program, but the moment it's over and Dave Chao's "Twisted Kicks" comes on, they raise thier heads, glare at the radio, and leave the room!
The Egyptians worshiped cats as Gods. Cats have never forgotton this.
