Curator Cat Says: It's Caturday... and it's PI DAY!
Hello fellow felines of Steemlandia, and greetings to the Hoomans, as well!
It's Saturday once more... and we all know what that means: It's CATURDAY, my favorite day of the week! So get out all those cute cat photos and share them with the world!
I love the sun!
A Special KIND of Caturday!
Today is March 14th — or "3/14" as the date is written in many parts of the world — which means many people are also having fun with today being "Pi Day."
At least it means something if you're into numbers and math and all that!
That said, the Mom-Hooman is going to make an apple pie for dessert. Which is all good and fine, as long as she remembers to give me extra kitty treats!
When you're a cat, it's always a good time to clean!
Join the Official Caturday Community!
Meanwhile, people keep creating new "communities" here in Steemlandia.
I'm excited to say that we now have our very own CATURDAY Community! I encourage you to subscribe and start posting your Caturday posts to this community!
It was created by @saboin, who's one of the biggest supporters and curators of cat-related content... as well as one of the biggest supporters of @catnet and the Cat Appreciation Token (CAT). Check it out!
Wait! I see something I might chase...
Remember to ENJOY LIFE!
It seems like the State of Steem and the State of the World is filled with fear and uncertainty, these days.
It can be easy to get caught up in the relentless seriousness of it all, and forget to simply enjoy the moments we have.
The sun still shines into our entryway and stairwell! Flowers are still beautiful. Hummingbirds still visit our feeder and provide me with free entertainment. People still love each other. Ice cream still tastes good. Sunsets are still spectacular. Soon the daffodils and tulips will bloom.
And I still enjoy chasing the Hooman's camera straps and other dangling objects!
Got the camera strap! You guys don't usually get to see all the "fail" photos we take...
Keeping Things in Perspective
Yes, the Corona Virus and COVID-19 is serious matter.
But in 2018, 1.5 million people died from Tuberculosis. Nobody talks about that. In fact, many people think humanity cured tuberculosis.
Almost 600,000 people die from Malaria every year, and have been for many decades.
If that sounds "too exotic" for you, 1.25 million people die as a result if diabetes, every year. Or 9.6 million die from cancer, every year.
The only thing about COVID-19 is that it is NEW and therefore unknown. We're familiar with the others I listed, but have become "desensitized" to their seriousness, and their massive fatality rates.
So, remember to enjoy life!
And enjoy your Caturday!
If any of this made you pause and think, please DO consider resteeming this message, and/or sharing it on social media. The rampant fear has to STOP, and be brought into perspective!
