Does Your Cat Get No Respect? National Respect Your Cat Day was yesterday. Okay we’re a day late but it should be every day or at least a few extra PR days to get the message across.
The origin dates back to March 28, 1384 when King Richard LLL issued an edict forbidding cats from be eaten. We’ve come a long in the U.S. in that regard but in some Asian countries cats and dogs are treated like livestock, cruelly slaughtered and eaten.
It may seem like a fluffy holiday but in our busy world, we need reminders of what it means to respect our cat. Respect is a way of treating or thinking about something or someone. If you respect your cat or any cat, you admire her and treat her well. This goes beyond neglect and cruelty to awareness of their needs not ours We may want dress them up for yet another Instagram post , but they may not. They may want to play, have snuggle time, an extra clean litter box, healthy food and treat. They may need a dental or vet wellness visit, grooming or the claws trimmed.
Our Domino is taking it very seriously like Clint Eastwood, saying “Make my day!” We’re sharing two shareables. Take your pick. What do you think your cat wants most today?
