Wow! What a busy week celebrating animals. In honor of World Animal Day, I wanted to take a moment to celebrate three of my very best animal friends…Max, Grace, and Chelsea–my beloved cats. I invite you to honor the special animals in your life. What will you do for them today!? Maybe just spend a few extra moments rubbing their chins or scratching behind their ears. You know they will be forever grateful. So before you rush out the door this morning, don’t forget to do something special for the animals in your life.
Mr. Max. My shadow. My love bug. Greets me at the door like a puppy. He’s only missed three days of greeting me after a day at work…when he was: 1) at the vet, 2) stuck in a closet all day (Oops!), and 3) stuck inside the duvet cover on my bed…silly boy found his way in but couldn’t get out.
Gracie May. The boss. A fetcher. To know her is to love her. A contradiction-in-terms…at once both independent and tough yet needy and insecure. Would love to be an only cat…wants my complete attention and normally gets it. How does she always get her way?!
Chelsea Blue. Oh so sensitive and sweet. My snuggle bug. Loves to sleep under blankets…”If I hide under a blanket, Grace will not know I’m here.”
But I digress (I promise to do this only once per year! I should be allowed one self-indulgent post per year, right!?), beyond honoring your pets on World Animal Day, how about supporting a local animal shelter or animal welfare group? Walk a homeless dog, explain to someone (kindly) why circuses and zoos aren’t cool, or support a local or online vegan retailer. The list is endless. It’s just important to do something. Of course, you could continue with some of my suggestions from earlier this week because today is about all animals. Have fun! ;-)
Next week back to why “It’s easy being vegan!”
