Tabitha here. Mom is trying to do "Stuff on My Cat" again!
Today is National Rubber Ducky Day! (It is also Friday the 13th but we prefer to celebrate something more fun instead!)
Sweetpea is pretending nothing is there - maybe they will go away!
It all began in 1970 when Jim Henson performed the song “Rubber Duckie” as Ernie on Sesame Street. The rubber duck bath toy has been an iconic American symbol ever since. Rubber ducks have been around since the rise of the rubber industry in the late 1800s, but no one knows their exact origin.
Two Spot thought he could nest with the duckies!
Snowball backed up to keep his distance!
Did you know that in January of 1992, a shipment of 29,000 rubber duckies fell off a cargo ship in the Pacific Ocean? By 2007, the “Friendly Floatees” had traveled 17,000 miles around the world on the ocean currents. Some are still afloat today! Over the years, people reported sightings in Indonesia, Australia, South America, the Bering Straight, the Arctic, and (eventually) the Atlantic Ocean. (Info from Punchbowl.com)
