Celebrate Your Vet! It's World Veterinary Day!

The last Saturday of April is marked as World Veterinary Day. We celebrate our veterinary professionals on this day, first noted by the World Veterinary Association in 2000.

While we always appreciate the health of our pets, and the help and care they receive from veterinary professionals, today especially we'll think about their important work.

Let's raise a virtual catnip toy today to honor all of the veterinarians that have helped our cats throughout the year!

Happy Hairball Awareness Day!

Today, April 24, is recognized as National Hairball Awareness Day. This "holiday" is "celebrated" annually on the last Friday in April. I think most cat owners are aware of hairballs without having to mark a special date on the calendar. The day is listed along with many other such awareness campaigns on the AVMA Veterinary Awareness Events page.

In our house, we are very lucky to have minimal problems with hairballs between our three boys.

With our previous long-haired tuxedo Arby, it was a regular battle that we fought with periodic doses of hairball preventative gels. Here's a photo of our sweet tuxedo boy enjoying a face-plant nap in a cat bed.

Hopefully you are among the lucky cat owners who hasn't had to think about hairballs until being reminded by this annual event!

Happy National Pet Day!

Today, April 11, is National Pet Day. While this may not be a major, widely-recognized holiday, the love we have for our companion animals is worth celebrating every day.

Especially in the current Covid-19 pandemic crisis facing everyone on this planet, pets can provide their owners with much-needed emotional support and cherished companionship.

I know our cats have been providing essential services: comforting snuggles and improv comedy entertainment are helping us tremendously as we stay #saferathome. On behalf of our three sweeties here at home, we wish everyone a very happy National Pet Day!

The calendar is full of fun commemorative holidays to spread awareness on a crazy variety of topics. One of those commemorative days worth celebrating for cat owners is Respect Your Cat Day, celebrated each year on March 28th. 

Especially in this time of extra stress and uncertainty due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, pets are stepping up to provide their owners with essential services which include emotional comfort and original entertainment. Take a moment to honor the four-legged heroes in your home on this special day.
