June is Adopt a Shelter Cat month. If you adopt in June, be sure to ask about your special discount on pet sitting! It’s also National Pet Preparedness Month. It’s an excellent reminder to rotate your emergency supplies for you pet or put together a kit if you don’t have one. For more information, check out the following articles from Pet Sitters International and the Dept. of Homeland Security’s Ready.gov.
June 11 – World Pet Memorial Day
June 17 – Take Your Cat to Work Day kicks off PSI’s 21st annual Take Your Pet to Work Week.
May is both National Pet Month and Chip Your Pet month! It’s a great time to get your babies microchipped so they can find their way home if lost. This month is also a good reminder to update info on your microchip registration if needed.
May 3rd: National Specially Abled Pets Day
May 7th – May 13th: Be Kind To Animals Week
And of course, May 12th is Mother’s Day which I believe is certainly applicable to cat moms, too! 🙂
October 27th is National Black Cat Day! I have a special place in my heart for these guys. This can be a scary time of year for black cats due to lingering (and unfounded) superstitions. If you are lucky enough to have a house panther, be sure to keep him/her inside to keep them safe from Halloween tricks.
