Did you know that February 20 is National Love Your Pet Day?
Yep, me neither…but it’s absolutely true!
Now you may be saying to yourself: “There’s a national day for this? I love my pets every day!” You know what, if you're like me, I’m sure that you do!
For those of us who are pet lovers, whether it be dogs, cats, birds, lizards, snakes, ferrets, hamsters, gerbils, fish, Pokémon, dragons or anything else, we tend to dote on our little buddies every day. Personally, I talk to them constantly like they are my children (with accompanying baby talk at times, it’s sickening really ).
But today is the day to do something extra special for them! You could spend an extra half hour playing with them, or take them on a walk to their favorite park. Feed them the live food instead of the frozen kind (for those of you with lizards, snakes, etc.). Buy them the special food at the local pet store as a treat or get them a new toy. The sky’s the limit. Even Best Buy carries some pet items that may inspire you!
In the end, what your pets (especially the furry ones) mostly just want is your attention! It’s probably a cliché, but while you have a great big world with work, friends and family, to them; you are their whole world. If there’s ever been a day where they helped you find a little peace or happiness, take a day to show them how much they mean to you.
And now for a gratuitous picture of my fur babies, I give you Loki and his sister Lilith:
Because, you know, not enough cat pictures on the internet
I hope you and your pets have an awesome National Love Your Pet Day!
