National Teddy Bear…er… I Mean Cat Day

I’m knee-deep in a shit show today folks.

You see, I’ve been all wrapped up in Halloween shenanigans and my gal pal Amanda just called my attention to one of the biggest holidays of the year. It’s National Cat Day.

I cannot believe I didn’t know about it (and I’m sure my eyes will be clawed out immediately upon my arrival home from work today) as I’m a raging lunatic over my cat Ted. He’s the yin to my yang. The side to my kick. The “me” to my “ow”. And frankly today, I’m fucked.

So in a dire attempt to make my pussy a little less unhinged at my failure as a cat mom, may I present you with an ode to the best bear on the planet…


Oh Ted you bring so much joy and good cheer,

Even when your piercing looks could kill.

Always a sport when I dress you up,

You never lose your cool when the costume F’s up.

Cinco de Teddy was our highlight this year and

while I was sure we had matching sombreros,

I’m pretty sure you were trying to figure out

how to pierce my heart with an arrow.

Bunny ears aren’t your favorite as you made very clear,


So I made you a pirate, in which (I kinda think) you revered.

Today is your day and in honor of you,

I will break out my finest kit cat attire.


And I’ll be sure to slip your favorite tie on-

before you try to murder me by hire.

The night will be yours to do as you please.

Whether it includes Skinny Pirates, shots of Jell-O,

or your favorite vino to help you chill and be mellow.


Celebrate you we will with all kinds of fun,

As my Earth tends to revolve around your sun.

And I’m begging you to believe me when I say,

I will never, ever again forget this day.

Happy Teddy Bear Day to all of our feline furiends!

    Yin and Yang are my brothers. Hope you took the day off for such a special holiday!

  2. I think you, as one cat lover to another you should come and check out my art of kitty maintenance! lol

    And this was really funny by the way 😀

    Hahaha excellent. I’ll look for a follow up post to be sure he hasn’t killed you.

    Did this holiday start right after midnight?!? If so that might explain why Jack jumped on my head about 15 times throughout the night and he has been giving me this sort of sideways glare all day today.

    Once again however…I fear you will pay dearly for the indiscretions in the form of costume choices you have heaped upon poor Ted.
    What’s next? Cosplay Ted!?!? 😀

    • Oh the thought of Cosplay Ted almost makes me want to attempt…!

      And yes, Jack was onto you not remembering this day of national feline recognition! I am going to pay dearly for the rest of what will be my short life since Halloween costumes are in preparation for Thursday AND we have our Christmas card to dress up for in the next few weeks. Ah, the rough life of being a crazy cat lady.

  5. Awwwwww. 🙂

    Love the poetry : D and the cuteness that is Teddy.

  6. Love that last picture of you two but do I detect that Tedstar is most animated (not unlike his Mum) when he is in the vicinity of beverages!

  7. I could look at him all day, lol, I’m sure he could look at himself all day.

    • I’m still crying from your comment. And yes, he most definitely could look at himself all day. As a matter of fact, I think that’s what he does all day when I’m at work. Yeah, I’m pretty sure of it.
