Respect Your Cat Day

Does Your Cat Get No Respect? National Respect Your Cat Day is 700 years old

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?

  1. If there is proper respect of creatures then it follows that there *will* be respect of people. Or we would hope it would be that way. For if there is no animal respect then how can people be treated respectfully? Petcretary says that since those who abuse others often have done that in the past to animals.

  2. Domino,
    we forgot to say we LUV the Tude Dude!

  3. RESPECT!!!!!! Gotta give it to get it!
    We try to respect all animals and people but the peoples are much harder to do.
    We love each other and try to encompass all areas into our interactions with each other and others outside of our “family”
    Luvs and Purrs of Respect, Compassion and Kindness to All!

  4. Wow, did not know this stems from 700 years ago, from King Richard III.
    Cheddar and Mao get our respect, love and food …every day.
    And they give back. Big time.

    1. I bet they do 😽💕 Since the edict was never repealed I wonder if this influenced future generations. The U.K was the first to have animal protection laws.
