Saturday (3/28) is "National Respect Your Cat" Day." We have two cats at our house, a black cat named Shane and the newest addition named Capricorn. Tara calls him "Cap" for short but I call him "Scardy" because he likes to hide under my bed.

He comes out a lot more often now but I still say to him, "Hello Scardy Cat." It makes me laugh...but I'm the only one. I guess I need to show more respect for my cat and on Saturday, I will.

They have brought so much joy to everyone in the house especially Tara. I can find the cats behind her or on her bed. She's been reading a different book every day to kids through Facebook during the COVID-19 crisis and you can see Shane sitting behind her on the chair.

Tara is a cat whisperer and they seem to understand when she talks to them and that's not easy because cats have a mind of their own and don't seem to listen to anybody. I know they don't listen to me.

They were both were adopted from the Broome County Humane Society. They love to sit on the window sill or piano bench and sun themselves. We think they are meow-nificent.

By the way, you can still adopt cats (and dogs) from the Broome County Humane Society at 167 Conklin Avenue in Binghamton during the Coronavirus Pandemic. It's a difficult time for them and they are accepting food and monetary donations too.

You can drop off food donations outside or you can go here to help them out online. If you're looking to do something with your cat today, go here. We think our cats are Paw-some and we hope yours are too.
