Recycling Day


Every other Wednesday is recycling day in our town. The people in the big truck with dancing bottles and cans come around and take the yellow buckets and dump plastic/glass/aluminum items into the very hungry truck. Then another truck comes around and takes cardboard. I'm helping Meowmy "break down" the cardboard boxes on the sun porch. We put out paper bags with paper in them and then we always have some sort of boxes too. This week we have lots of boxes because of our new furniture from Ikea and Meowmy's new shoes she ordered online. Obviously, I'm a helpful meezer!

Oh and the flag is sitting on the porch until the 4th of July rolls around. You will not believe how crazy this town gets on the 4th of July!! Houses compete for the best decorations, there is a parade, and a race down the hill, and a raft race. It is wild! I'll be sure to take pictures. Meowmy wants to enter us in the pet pageant because Kaze and I are already white and blue, we just need red.

It's too bad the boxes have to get broke down when there is still some play left in them! It is nice of you to help though.

Maybe you can be in the parade from your stroller! Yeah, you can decorate your stroller and everything!

I REALLY REALLY want to be in the parade but I think the Chip Man will veto that suggestion. His whole family comes to our house for the parade and I think strolling with cats isn't something he publishes. His mother in fact laughed at a dog in a stroller once and said it was "pathetic". Grr....I don't like her much.

I agree with Daisy that it's a shame that boxes have to get broken down and recycled before the cats are done with them. I don't think I like your Dad's Mom much, either. There are lots of situations where small dogs and cats are safer in a stroller than on a leash.

It is very good to have that hungry truck come around and collect all of the glass and cardboard. I think you should let mom know wen you are finished with boxes though... It is good that you help out even.
I think being in the pageant would be super fun!!!

Your beans am much better at the 'cycling thing than mine. Momma always forgets and by the time she a'members, it am already in that hungry truck. Oh well... That pagent sounds like way good fun! Methinks you should enter it!! Where do you live in Mew Jersey? We don't live near the shore, that's what makes it so funny that the seagulls come around! LOL! We live right at the tip of Mew Jersey a'fore Mew York. You can even walk into the next state if you really wanna.

yoo are being furry helpful wiv the reesykling. Mum sez I wuz a naughty boy the uvver day, cuz she had the bag wiv all the cans reddy. Well I saw them and batted them wiv my paw, and thay made lots of noise, so I batted them harder. And then I batted them again and again.....
Well when mum came along and found the bag in shreds, and the cans efurrywhere, she wuz not happy.

Chip Man's Mom sounds just like our dad - he laughed when our Cousin Scooby Cat got a stroller. But at least we also help with the recyclables. OK, we jump on the cardboard when our Lady tries to crush it up!

You are a very helpful Meezer. Do you crush cans, too?

You are so helpful to squish the boxes for them, I think they should reward you by letting you keep one small box to play in.
