Happy National Pet Day everyone! Gather your cats, dogs, fish, hamsters, lobsters, and humans: A lot of you have been asking how Peeta has been doing with his transition, and we’ve heard your call. Today, I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the world famous black cat himself. You will get to hear directly from him. Peeta Nikolay Plumton Fournier, 4 years 3 months 20 days old, is here to share all about his transition to Philadelphia.
… okay… ?
Maybe he might be better off camera. We sat down, and this is what he said:
Mike: Peeta, thank you for joining me today.
M: So, let’s jump in. What do you think of the current American political landscape?
P: … (turns head to the left and pauses as if gathering his thoughts)
M: … ?
M: Good point?
After speaking with his agent, we agreed that Peeta’s story of getting lost and found in Philadelphia is best told through photos.
Day 1: The 10 Hour Drive. I didn’t pee the whole way. My Dads had to stop twice! TWICE. Embarrassing.
Night 1: They left me alone! PARTY! Where my Philly Cats at?!
Day 3: We sit on the couch. Dad cries a bit, he misses home. I stand guard like a rock. I must be his rock. I quietly mock him. Honestly, who watches American Idol? Take a shower already.
Day 10: I’m tired of being his rock. Leave me alone. I adjusted 10 days ago. #YOLO
Day 19: They say sleeping more is naturally part of the ‘transition’. Bah. Whatever. I’m fine. I have a busy life. Let me sleep.
Day 27: This Philly water is the BEST! I will take a mouthful from here…
… and drop it here. Dad only drinks filtered water…
Day 34: The birds mock me. I can only watch.
Day 42: The birds continue to mock me. Watch your back birds. I am connected. #FeralCatMob
Day 44: I designed this. You are welcome.
Day 48: Best part of moving. The gifts that keep on giving. Yes.
Day 50: Would you eat dry kibble? No more of that organic garbage that you feed me. Read my cat-lips: I want this. NOW.
Day 60: It’s been 2 months. I’m bored.
Time to join SnapCat.
Meow is right.
Day 63: My Easter Egg Hunt video went viral with 14 views. This is my time.
Day 64: My time continues. 16 views. I needed a computer to reply to my fan mail. Thanks for having a birthday Dad.
Day 64.5: I’ve actually become a bit of a ‘thing’ here in America.
Philly Street Artists can’t get enough of me. #MoreFamousThanCheesesteaks
Day 71: Today, I reflect on these last 2 months. Yeah it’s fine.
It turns out that nothing has really changed from Toronto.
Happy National Pet Day or whatever.
(Thank you Peeta for… your words of inspiration!)

Song of the Day: Nothing. #micdrop
