Hi everybuddy. It’s me, Wally…along with Ernie. Did you know today is Respect Your Cat Day? It’s a special day for humans to show us cats how much they love and respect us. Rumor has it that on this day…March 28…in 1384, King Richard II of England issued an edict that forbade the consumption of cats. Y’mean before that humans were consuming cats? Ewwwwwww!
Purrsonally, we think every day is Respect Your Cat Day…but since today’s the official day of recognition, humans, me and Ernie would like to share some ways for you to show respect to your cats.
Make sure we have lots of comfy spots to nap…either separately…
Give us cool places to hide and get away from it all.
Us cats love to scratch so we need fun things to get our claws into…like this cardboard scratcher.
Provide us with toys that not only appeal to our nature to hunt…
but also stimulate our minds.
Feed us foods that are not only good for us…but are tasty, too.
We may not like going to the evil vet, but regular vet appointments are necessary to keep us healthy and happy.
But most of all, humans…give us lots of love and attention. After all, isn’t that what respect is all about?
Okay…now tell us the ways you respect your cat.
