Enough already...

...with the crash-a-booms.

I know it's a holiday where humans love to play with their boomie thingies, but it's been four days already. Enough is enough. The Mom explained to me that today is the official holiday, so I asked her why the booms have been going on since Friday. "Well, each town celebrates on different days." Why? That's kind of stupid. Isn't the holiday only one day? "Yes, but it has to do with town regulations or something like that." OK, fine then. So who is regulating the kids in the neighborhood running around with the really LOUD boomies? How is a girl supposed to get in a good nap if she's woken up every fifteen minutes by a loud boom? Geeze.

To top it off, it seems like Mother Nature wants to join in on the act too. We had some really loud crash-a-booms with lots of rain earlier. That didn't help my nerves either, which have been totally fried since Friday.

This is a stupid holiday.

We's been hearing boomies for days too. Then the Mom and Dad wented to a party today and left us alone. Then BIG BOOMIES happened when we were alone! They told us when they camed home about how bad the rain and big boomies were there too. Efen a snakie came out in the storm where they were! Mom is going to post about it tomorrow. The lights wented out efen. We were scared. Now they're home so we're ok now.

These humans have NO consideration for the beauty sleep of a kittycat. Do they think it is possible to maintain that beauteous fur on less than 23 hours of sleep a day?

Sheesh!

This is a very difficult holiday for sleeping. Our neighbors are still setting off boomies, then their little humans laugh and giggle and then our woofie barks and barks which causes all the other woofies in the neighborhood to bark and bark and then our neighbors set off another boomie and, as you know, it is not a good holiday for our beauty sleep. -- Alberta, Sky, Blackie and Charlie

The boomies were out of control here last night. The silly neighbors two houses away even went so far as to light a huge smoke bomb in the middle of the road...so any traffic trying to get through could have killed them since you never could have seen that smoke! It was so bizarre...

It boggles my mind why that want to spent money on something and then blow it up! Mother Nature was in fine fittle last night too and kept Momma awake with all the noise. I slept all day to make up for lost naps..
