National Love Your Pet Day
Sunday, February 21, 2021
This is our assignment for the Aspire & Inspire sparkteam: On February 20th, pet lovers everywhere observe National Love Your Pet Day. This holiday focuses on giving extra attention to our pets. The day encourages pampering our pets and focusing on the special relationship pets hold in our lives. Bring your pet a special treat, take an extra-long walk or give them more attention. Other ideas include: check that their vaccines are up to date, watch a pet video with them full of cats, dogs and other critters, give them a few extra strokes with the brush while grooming, practice their favorite commands – sit, shake, rollover, play their favorite game or bring out their best toy, inspect their toys to make sure they’re in good shape. Throw out any broken toys, wash their bedding, even if it’s not their laundry day. let them fluff it up just the way they like it.
Yesterday I gave our cat Lucy some extra treats and attention. Lucy is the cat we adopted from the Humane Society in October. She is 8 years old. She is very sweet, and she has adapted to our home very well. We have a cat door from the house to the screen porch, and she likes going out there. She sleeps a lot (like all cats), and has two blankets that she likes to sleep on. She also likes playing with her toy mice. Here are a couple of pictures of Lucy:
