Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!
Celebrate Our Pets
Who do you spend the most time with at home? Chances are, if you live with a cat or a dog, these faithful friends and companions are constantly by your side!
My cats are always nearby, watching my every move. When he isn’t by my side, Magellan loves to perch on high places like the refrigerator so he can see everything that I do!
Every day, I delight in the many unique things my cats do that bring joy to my life.
Did you know that along with flowers, May brings with it two significant occasions for us to celebrate our pets?
First, the American Humane Association – our country’s first humane organization, and the only one dedicated to protecting both children and animals – celebrates Be Kind To Animals Week from May 1 through May 7. As part of this year’s campaign, the American Humane Association is challenging one million people to take the Kindness 100 Pledge. Won’t you consider becoming part of their compassionate movement?
Second, the first week of May is also National Pet Week! The American Veterinary Medical Association invites you to visit the Pet Week website to learn you can help provide your pet with the happiests, healthiest life possible.
As a mom who is owned by two bodacious Maine Coon Cats, I thought I’d share the following five feline facts for fun, which I found on the Pet Week website!
- There are 10 million more cats owned in America than dogs!
- Cats are less than half as likely to be seen by a veterinarian and receive healthcare.
- There are “cat-friendly” practices that focus on making trips to the veterinarian less stressful for your cat.
- Cats CAN be trained.
- Maine, Vermont, Oregon, Idaho and Washington have the highest percentage of cat-owning households.
