Ashton: But Newton, you aren’t green. You’re orange.
Newton: *sigh* Do you see what I live with?
Ashton: I heard that!
Newton: Green means something is good for the environment.
Ashton: That sounds like a good idea. What can we cats do that is good for the environment?
Newton: We can recycle.
Ashton: Is recycling like when Pierre gets sick to his stomach and then afterwards you–
Newton: We agreed not to talk about that, remember?
Newton: Here, let me show you. This is a way that we can recycle. The cans from our food go into the recycling bin instead of the trash.
Newton: Our cat food cans are made of aluminum, which is recyclable. If we throw away our food cans, they are in the landfill forever, but aluminum is a material that can be recycled over and over again. A can can be turned into a new can and be back on the store shelf again within 60 days.
Ashton: That’s fast!
Newton: But surveys have shown that only a little more than half of pet owners recycle their cat food cans. Not only is recycling good for the environment but in some cities, programs like Paws to Recycle use money from donated recyclable items to help rescued animals in need. If your cat food cans can help other cats, why wouldn’t you recycle them?
Ashton: I like this Earth Day thing. But you’re still orange, not green.
Happy Earth Day, everybody!
Newton: I need to report a theft that’s about to happen.
I heard that I have an appointment at the vet for manscaping today.
Don’t worry, I’m not getting a lion cut. I’m still too much in charge around here to allow that to happen! But my glorious armpit floof is going to be gone after this appointment!
The head peep keeps saying things about it being matted and saying I have dreadlocks in my armpits. I’m pretty sure that’s rude. She’s probably just jealous, so she is stealing the symbol of my mancat virility.
I promise to love all of you ladycats just as much even with my armpit floof gone, and I wanted to tell you now, just in case you didn’t recognize me without it. I’ll always be the lady’s cat, no matter what.
I have to run. Time for me to go hang out in the closet so this isn’t too easy for them.
We heard a rumor that a rabbit that lays eggs was wandering around, visiting a lot of our friends. We didn’t see a rabbit, but look what showed up in our basket…
Toy balls of all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. After this haul, we are pretty sure there aren’t any hiding under the sofa or bed any more!
We know that our basket isn’t in very good shape, but this basket has been around a while. Pierre has grown a bit since he first posed with it.
Happy Easter to all of our friends who celebrate it!
