year, new month, means new holidays to celebrate. There are dozens of holidays
being created each year and we at Holistic Pet Care want to bring you a guide
to some holidays you may not be aware of to spice up your month. Mark your
calendars because these are some holidays you can celebrate with your pets in
January 2: Mew Years for Cat’s Day
are very special creatures; so special in fact, they get their own day to
celebrate New Year’s. Party with your cats by spreading awareness of proper
feline pet care, go to a shelter and adopt a cat who is longing for a new home,
or just stay inside and cook up a special dinner for them and yourself.
January 5: National Bird Day
are some of the most majestic creatures on earth. They have brilliant colors,
soar through the clouds and are symbols of good health, wisdom, horror and
heart. Take a moment today to just sit back, look in the sky, spread some seeds
to appreciate these beautiful animals and ask yourself; what is your favorite
January 14: Dress Up Your Pet Day
dress up all the time for business or pleasure; why not share that fun with our
pets? Sure, some may not love it at first, but dressing up our pets are for our
amusement really. Who doesn’t love seeing a little dachshund dressed up like a
hot dog or a cat in a business suit? So have some fun, dress up your pet and
take photos to send to your friends and family.
January 16: Dragon Appreciation Day
are the coolest animals ever. Look at every culture in history, and they have a
story about a dragon. They may not exist in our lifetime anymore, but we should
still appreciate these amazing creatures. Let us marvel at the ferocity of the
European Dragons, the grace and serenity of the Western Dragons, the calm and
comfort of a Bearded Dragon, the strength and venom of a Komodo Dragon or the
swiftness of a Dragonfly. Celebrate all things dragon; what they mean to you
and what they have inspired on Earth.
January 20: National Penguin Day
know what animals never get enough attention, penguins. They are one of the
flightless birds that no one thinks about, because they live in super cold
areas not many people want to go to. That’s not their fault, they just evolved
that way; and they deserve respect for evolving to always look like they are
wearing tuxedos. In all of the animal kingdom, what other animal is naturally
born with an outfit that looks like they are a classy species? Yes, the
coloring is for camouflage when they are swimming, but that just means they are
well dressed for both fashion AND function. Good on you penguins!
January 21: Squirrel Appreciation Day
can get a bad reputation: they throw acorns at us from trees, sit on telephone
polls while bopping their tail like they are plotting something, and steal food
from our bird feeders. Regardless, they are one of Earth’s wonderful creatures
because if they weren’t so forgetful, we probably wouldn’t have many of the
trees we have today. So, thank you squirrels, you are pretty cute and we
appreciate all that you contribute to the planet. Feel free to take those extra
seeds and nuts, you earned it.
January 22: Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day
Does your cat look at you and ask you questions you just don’t have time to answer? Use today to sit down with your cat, and answer all his/her questions. No matter how strange or silly they maybe, take your time and talk with your cats. Answer them honestly, because we serve them.
