Our hooman lost a hooman that she admired, RUTH BADER GINSBURG. We're sharing two of RBG's quotes from "In Her Own Words:" ----"Sometimes people ask me, 'So now there are three of you. When do you think you will have enough women on the Supreme Court?' And I think: when we are nine." ---- "The dean (of Harvard Law School) greeted the women in his first-year class with an invitation to dinner at his home. He brought us into his living room and called on each of us to tell him in turn why we were at the Harvard Law School occupying a seat that could be held by a man."
Earthquake!! Did you feel it? When we felines first heard it, my scaredy cat siblings streaked up the stairs a nano second before the house started rocking! Me? I took cover under the dining room chair & table. That's what you're supposed to do plus, I stayed near our hooman. She should have gotten under the table too but hoomans aren't fast enough! Our hooman's 'Shake Alert LA" App says it was a 4.5 magnitude about 30 minutes East of us. A reminder to be ready for "The Big One!" YOWL!!
SPIRIT: We're celebrating what today?
SOPHEE: Memorial Day -- used to be called Decoration Day. (Remembrance Day is a Holiday celebrated in other countries on our Veterans Day. My apologies.)
SPIRIT: In memory of what?
SOPHEE: In memory of all the animals and hoomans killed in wars.
SPIRIT: Killed? What's war?
SOPHEE: It's kinda' like a big fight. It's a hooman thing, I guess.
SPIRIT: Why do they have wars and what makes them fight anyway? Hoomans are smart, right?
SOPHEE: I don't have a clue. Ask Inkee-Bear. He's the house-sage.
SOPHEE: Inkee-Bear, are hoomans really smart and, if they are, what makes them want to fight and have wars?
INKEE-BEAR: Yes, hoomans are supposed to be smart. But this war thing they do and why they do it -- it's complicated. Sometimes they want to be the most powerful, to have the most territory, to rule the most people, to defend themselves -- greed, vanity and so much more. Like I said, it's complicated.
SPIRIT: Are we are at war now?
INKEE-BEAR: Not now.
SPIRIT & INKEE-BEAR: We want to remember and thank all those hoomans and animals who fought for our country and lost their lives. We're sad that those are lives that could have been and should have been. We won't forget their sacrifice.

GRACEE: OMG!! Mother's Day? Didn't we just celebrate that? Guess not. I'm getting forgetful. Our Vet says I'm a Senior cat now. Do I look like a Senior cat? I don't feel like a Senior cat. My mirror doesn't tell me I'm a Senior cat. Do I look like a Senior cat to you, Sophee?
SOPHEE: I'm not touching that with a 10-foot pole. I don't know what a Senior cat is anyway. I do know what a Mean cat is. Hate to tell you, Gracee, but of the four of us, you're the only one that hisses and swats all of us.

INKEE-BEAR: Like my box? I have it all to myself! This box came from Mary at Corsica Deli. Know how I know? We cats have super sensitive sniffers. Mine detects turkey, cheese, avocado, and bacon. That means my hooman's fav sandwich -- the turkey club -- was in this box. Our hooman is so weird. She only eats half the sandwich and puts the other half in the fridge. Not me! I inhale every morsel set in front of me. And, remember, it never hurts to ask for more!

Sophee says: "I'm investigating this gray Easter Bunny in our cat tree -- wearing a mask like our hooman -- to fight Covid-19! I don't know about your house but we're sure enough fighting it here. Everything that comes in our house gets sprayed & sanitized. It's a big hassle but our hooman reminds us: 'We gotta do this. We're in this together & we WILL be in this together for however long it takes.'"

Top of the morning to you! We're doing what we're supposed to be doing -- quuar-end-teening -- or something like that. You do the same (if you can) cause we don't want you to have to go to your vet & get your temp taken in your you-know-where, get shots or coned or anything like that.
