Here’s an “ole” out to all cats and humans of Mexican heritage in honor of Cinco de Mayo… that’s the fifth of May for you non-Spanish-speaking people and non-Spanish-meowing kitties.

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated to commemorate the defeat of French forces in the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. At the time, the Mexican government had stopped making payments to its creditors, including France, so France decided to try and take over Mexico to teach them a lesson (and to replace tortillas with croissants, I’m sure). Well, things didn’t work out so well for the French, who were turned back at Puebla. Still, the French later prevailed and occupied Mexico until 1866.

Today, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated primarily in Puebla, although year by year, the holiday has gained popularity worldwide. Could that be because most Cinco de Mayo celebrations are accompanied by liberal amounts of cerveza?

Anyway, Senor Quasi extends happy Cinco de Mayo wishes to gatos and humanistas everywhere!
