Veteran's Day, Awww Monday and Sparks

Here is today's Awww Monday
KAT is going to be guest blogger today
from his front row seat in New Mexico
Where he continues to see amazing new things!!
Take it away Kat 

Guess What Aunty
Yep, we’re still in New Mexico, ha!
the picture Kat sent me is not showing up so here is a recycled one
so you get a sweet imagine of my nephew in your mind's eye.

Guess what I saw today?
Can you see it? You might have to zoom in...
It’s a black-tailed prairie dog!

I said, “Meow-dy”, but I don’t think he understood. 😹
Anyway, it was great entertainment for this Georgia Kitty! 
Bundle up! I hear it’s going to get cold again back East. 

According to an article Mom read:
You know Mom was a teacher before she became mine and Pup's Mom.  She grabs
every moment as a teaching/learning experience.
Here is a tidbit of 
P'doggie info for the readers.
❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew

Prairie dogs have the most complex language of any animal ever studied.  They have over 200 words and can form sentences. Bark, snitch, yap, chirp, yip, chatter, yelp, twitter, chip, squeak, chirrup and woo hoo are all prairie dog sounds that humans can identify.  

Here is today's Sparks Quote

Dearest Nephew 
Your cousin, aka favorite sissy of Angel Madi, feel in love the the Prairie Dogs and Bison while she was way out west in September.  She was contemplating a way to get the little Prairie Dogs in her carry on!! MOL MOL  I don't think my grandcats, Frisco or Mia would have been amused. 

I had no idea about the Prairie Speak being so complex.
Please thank Mom for teaching all of us something new and 
exciting today.
Loving your Aunty HiC

    Actually, November the 11th is UK remembrance day - it's just that someone decided to make the service on nearest Sunday. More attendance and all that nonsense. Even honouring our fallen has become a media circus.

  3. they look not really like dogs, right? but we like them a lot... We will honor all the brave men and the animals today who came to bring freedom to us...

  4. They are cute. Keep up the travel reports, Kat.

  5. Our Remembrance Day is also on 11th. At 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month most people stop what they are doing for 2 minutes silence.
    I can't see the photo, but the video is cute.

  6. They are so cute. Good to give them a shout-out. Have a great day.
