Mama Cat’s Fourth of Mewly Flier-works Extravaganza!

My Disciples,

We all went to My Outdoor Domain today at the appointed hour to witness what Mama Cat promised would be a flier-works show the likes of which we had never seen. Since none of us had ever seen a flier-works show, or even knew what one was, we didn’t doubt her claim. The newly knighted Thomas took a front row seat next to Brother Oliver, while Brother Henry took up position on an elevated platform. This was partly so he could better manage security during the event, and partly because he was really excited and wanted a good view. I sat in the back. Since My reflexes are a little slow these days, I was afraid I might get hit by an errant flier-work.

The Spectators 1

We all got in position to view what we knew would be the best flier-works show we had ever seen.

To our surprise, one of the Guardians appeared in the yard carrying a regulation Catlympic artificial bird. She began to drag the bird across the ground, and when she reached the middle of the yard, Mama Cat came busting out of a nearby shrub and nabbed it! As Mama laid on the ground with one paw on the bird, she looked at us and said, “You boys ready for a show!?”

Mama Cat gets ready

Mama Cat asked if we were ready for a show.

We all hooted and hollered to indicate that we were indeed ready for a show. Mama Cat said, “All right then. I’ve prepared a little something special for this Dependence Day celebration. I was up all night last night writing a Dependence Day song. It is to the same tune as the American national anthem and… IT GOES A LITTLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS!” After Mama Cat shouted that last part, she suddenly went into a bi-pedal stance and started singing at the top of her lungs. She sang throughout her performance, busting a different move for every verse. See for yourself.

WHERE A KITTY AIN’T SAFE!

After her big finale, Mama Cat plopped down on the lawn with her sides heaving. We all went crazy, running, jumping, yowling and yelling. Mama Cat seemed pleased.

Mama Cat was exhausted after her performance, but she was pleased by our response.

After we settled back down, Mama Cat headed over to the water bowl in the Mama Snuggle Shack 3000 for a drink. The Brothers, Thomas and I were all still sitting in a state of silent awe with visions of the performance we had just witnessed playing over and over again in our heads. The silence was finally broken by Thomas, who said, “Ummmm… ‘wave’ doesn’t rhyme with ‘safe’, does it?”

Our silent awe was broken when Thomas asked a question about Mama Cat’s song.

Brother Oliver looked over at Thomas and said, “Thomas… did you just watch the same performance that I did? If Mama cat says ‘wave’ rhymes with ‘safe’, then ‘wave’ rhymes with ‘safe’. End of story.” Brother Henry and I started laughing, and Thomas quickly joined in. In the end, we all definitely agreed that we had just witnessed the most spectacular flier-works display any of us had ever seen.

Happy Fourth of Mewly, everyone! Now it’s time for us to duck and cover. Mmmmmmm… duck.

    Mama Cat amazes and enthralls me! I am a senior ladycat, former mama too and I only WISH I could make the spectacular moves she does. And her Dependence day song lyrics were true and excellently put, mew are a truly wonderful and talented lady Mama Cat. I’m so glad Leader Otis’ guardians have looked out for mew when mewz own supposed ‘guardians’ do not. They should be ashamed how they treat mew and if I ever come to visit, I’m going to use their lawn as my litter box! Happy 4th of July to everyone at The Leader Otis’ compound! Mewmew!
