Adopt-A-Cat Month

Bucky, the catJune is Adopt-A-Cat month. Maybe we were absent from school the day they taught about that. Or maybe Adopt-A-Cat month wasn’t created until recently and we’re getting the news late. No one around here knew about it until a week and a half of June had gone by. Although we at Critical Pages don’t plan to adopt a cat, we’ll certainly appreciate all month long anyone who does. The feline pictured here is from the comic strip, Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley. The cat’s name is Bucky,  a clever but often annoyed animal who enjoys insulting his amiable,  simple and non-confrontational housemate, a dog named Satchel, and his owner,  Rob. We nominate Bucky as the iconic figure for  Adopt-A-Cat month because he’s not cute.

More Notes

Plenty of opinions here on Critical Pages, plus a lot of facts, but no alternative facts. Please don't misunderstand, we do like alternative facts -- after all, we're all writers here -- but we prefer the word fiction. It's shorter and everyone understands what we mean when say we're writing fiction.
