March Madness Cats and Pet Holidays

March Madness Instagram Cats and Pet Holidays

Hello, March! It’s official: the world has gone holiday crazy.  Pet holidays, weird holidays on every possible topic, food holidays, cause driven holidays, global religious and secular holidays official or esoteric. Do you get confused during Daylight Savings Time? I found no less than three different dates in March but we got the right one marked on our calendar. Every year, holiday frenzy gets worse but if you can’t beat them, join them with thoughtful and curated info from us.

Our lucky subscribers will receive the full-sized version in their inbox but here is the mini-version.

Confusion is in the cards especially with the influence of a Mercury retrograde in Pisces all month. We hope the calendar will help bring focus, a smile and most importantly, happy cats.

The main pet-focused holiday in March is Pet Poison Prevention Month

May we suggest perusing our tips about the dangers of lilies and other spring flowers.

How to avoid pet food poisoning or Pet poison awareness tips.

Our March pet holiday calendar has a focus on cats naturally but we’ve included some other (hopefully) useful info.

March, even is it comes in like a lion or lamb signals the end of winter and boy are we ready to celebrate! It’s been a glacier-slow climb to reach 10,000 followers at our @blackcatsofIg Instagram account but we did it! Thank you to our pawsome community and to our admin for keeping the account active while I’ve placed my limited time elsewhere. Our poor @catwisdom101 account needs some love but there are just so many hours in the day. No one on their death bed ever said, “I should have done more Facebook.”


What helped propel us into 5-figures was our featured a delightful trio of black cats which garnered over 12,000 likes, a record for us.

As always, we like to peek into the past every month to feature vintage cat art. Today it’s from the March, 1910 issue of Black Cat Magazine. I wonder if it inspired the Target logo 100 years later? For our friends outside of the U.S. Target is a popular chain of department stores.

The past, present and future often collide. Let’s hope this March keeps you on target.


So, is March coming in like a lion or a lamb for you?
