Proud to be an Americat


Happy 235th purrthday America.

Happy Independence Day to our fellow American Kitties. Hope all have a great day and cellybrate responsibly and have been cellybrating all weekend safely. Mum's finger is fine, she didn't want the cauly-flower to be pink.

The official big fireworks was last night in our area, some places will have them tonight. We ordered these special in that they don't make booms to scare kitties. They are pretty but won't scare you. Now to honor America, please join in and sing a few songs with us. Sing them from your heart.


God, bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, And guide her
Through the night with a light from above.From the mountains To the prairies To the oceans white with foam, God, bless America, My home, sweet home.God bless America Land that I love
Stand beside her
And guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains
To the prairies To the oceans white with foam
God bless America

My home sweet home
God bless America....

My home sweet home!




O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self the country loved
And mercy more than life!

America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for halcyon skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the enameled plain!

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till souls wax fair as earth and air
And music-hearted sea!

O beautiful for pilgrims feet,
Whose stem impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till paths be wrought through
wilds of thought
By pilgrim foot and knee!

O beautiful for glory-tale
Of liberating strife
When once and twice,
for man's avail
Men lavished precious life!

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till selfish gain no longer stain
The banner of the free!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till nobler men keep once again
Thy whiter jubilee!

Happy 4th of July to all of you! Thanks for the fireworks. We had ours last night and thankfully were on the other side of town so they didn't scare us as badly as they normally do.

Hi Derby and Ducky, sorry I haven't been visiting lately. Mom has had problems with comments lately, but she is back on. She was very frustrated.

What a beautiful memorial to our Great United States that you have posted. You two look very patriotic with your pictures with the flag.
