Have a Q&A With Your Cat Today!

Today is "Answer Your Cat's Question Day." The description of this quirky observance states that, "If you will stop what you are doing and take a look at your cat, you will observe that the cat is looking at you with a serious question. Meditate upon it, then answer the question!" If you're a cat lover, you are probably entertained by your cat's antics and have no trouble believing that they want to communicate with you. Be sure to visit the hilarious Web site LOLcats, where people take funny pictures of cats and add captions that imagine what the cats are thinking.

Take time to enjoy your pet today, and check out some NCC Library resources about these inquiring critters:
