|1927. Felix the Cat|
Cynthia: Cats have a long history in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. In 1927 Felix the Cat was the very first balloon character to fly in the parade.
Cynthia: Other notable cat balloons over the years were our favorite lasagna loving ginger cat, Garfield.
Cynthia: The lovely and quirky, Hello Kitty.
Cynthia: And Mr. Bad Cat himself – The Cat In The Hat. In fact, he is so bad he ran into a light post in 1997 and injured three people.

Marcy: Gasp! He’s so bad!
Cynthia: So what do you think, Marcy? Will there be a giant Marcy Balloon lording it over New York City one day?
Marcy (solemnly): That is my hope and dream.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING and HAPPY HANUKKAH
TO OUR WONDERFUL READERS!
Cheers and big slurpy kitty kisses!
