Keep you cats indoors and safe from all those fireworks. I know how upset and agitated our pets can be when it comes to this time of year. I always enjoy your input. Happy Independence Day, LizKat.Happy Fourth!
No need to argue - you nailed it
I would like to point out the colonists had military firearms at that time(in some cases even better than what the brits had). I wonder if the brits were making claims/demands that "no ones NEEDS a flintlock rifle." and trying to tell people they were only allowed to have matchlock rifles but couldn't carry them in public.
Thanks, and to you as well... I blush to look back at that post and see the typos.. I can't stay up until midnight any more apparently.. Not gonna edit them. They'll be my reminder that when the cats go upstairs (10pm in summer), I should be up there too. At least I did wake up to sunshine so I'm back outside to enjoy it while it graces this chunk of the USA. Happy Fourth to all!Keep you cats indoors and safe from all those fireworks.
