Monday, October 29th is National Cat Day.
It is a day to celebrate all things CAT!! =^..^=
National Cat Day is observed each year on October 29th. It was founded to help the public recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued. The day also encourages cat lovers to celebrate the cats in their lives, and for the unconditional love & companionship that they bestow upon their owners.

November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month.
Many people walk into a shelter or scour a rescue’s website hoping to adopt a new puppy or kitten, completely overlooking the perfectly adoptable older dogs and cats in kennels and cages in their search.
There are plenty of benefits to selecting an older pet over a younger one. Because senior pets are typically calmer and less energetic than puppies and kittens, it is easier to teach them new tricks. In fact, many senior pets are already pros at performing basic commands. Their low-key natures can also make them ideal for households with children.
Consider opening your heart and home to an older pet.
Thursday, November 1st is National Cook for Your Pets Day.
Today’s national holiday is about doing something special for your furry best friend. You love your pet, and want to provide what is best for them, so why not try to make them healthy, home cooked food?

OR contact your veterinarian or your local, independent pet specialty food store.
National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week is the first full week of November.
This year, it will be celebrated from Sunday, November 4th through Saturday, November 10th, 2018.
It is a week that recognizes shelters that provide care and bridge the gap to adoption for many abandoned and stray animals. It is also dedicated to the hard-working people, most of which are volunteers, who support the efforts of the shelters and keep pets healthy.
Give to your local animals shelter this week ... donated your time, give a donation, or see what supplies are desperately needed. OR, even take a new family member home, to make room for a new rescue. They will greatly appreciate it, and so will the animals!
