Welcome to Safety Week

Greetings and salutations from atop my most glorious
podium!! Cats love being high!!
Sarge you have spoiled me with the most lovely posies!!

Today is the beginning of a most exciting and informative 

First and foremost I want to thank 
for organizing this wonderful week and for
asking me to Meow the opening remarks today and honoring me with the title of 
Grand Marshall for today's parade.
I fear they have made my head swell
I kinda like being 
Mayoress Madi Grand Marshall!!

Mom says I can be a little wordy and folks might get antsy for the festivities so.....are you ready for my Meow?

Friends, Romans, countryman lend me your ears
Oops wrong notes here we go:
"Furiends of blogville and their assistants 
it is indeed an honor to welcome you to 
Safety Week.
Blogville is all about fun, creativity and
helping each other through thick and thin.
Safety comes from the adjective safe
which means secure or free from danger; dependable.  
In my mind to be secure or free from danger are both true descriptions of Blogville.  Each and every member of Blogville is dependable.
This week all the staff members of the Safety Committee will be posting about many ways they have learned to be safe in homes and outside.
I expect to learn lots of valuable information about being safe and how to keep my accident prone 2 legger safe.  So furiends
be sure to potty, stay hydrated and most of all
ENJOY this week."  
Now I will leave you with a few safety tips on NOT crossing a feline.

Q: What do you get if you cross a tiger with  with a snow man?
A: Frostbite
Q: What do you get if you cross a tiger with a sheep?
A: A stripey sweater
Q: What do you get if you cross a chick with an alley cat?
A: A peeping tom

And last but surely not least!!!!!
Q:  What do you get if you cross a cat with a tree?
A: A cat-a-logue

Thank you for your attention and now let the 
Below you will find the agenda for the week.
