Be Kind To Animals Week is May 5 – 11 this year. What can you do to support animals this week? Can you believe Mom says we are animals? Bailie and I find it hard to believe. We think this kind of week should start with things at home, and then move out and about.
How We Are Celebrating This Week
Our home office window is the most coveted spot in our house. Everyone wants to be on the window seat, preferably in the comfy bed. For Be Kind To Animals Week, we are trying to share the spot. Bailie let Bert (who is really an animal) have our cozy bed for his afternoon sun time. Who knows if he is appreciative of the kindness or not…he is a cat after all.
I guess I was not as nice to the feline animal, as I refused to give up the bed, but I did let him come up on the bench. We watched for critters together for a while. Lucky for me he didn’t hang out with me for too long. I could not relax until he left since he has been known to beat me up so I will leave the bed. Bert is not observing this be kind week at all.
Bailie and I always share, and are kind to each other. She never gets into the window bed, but she likes to hang out on the bench and watch the world go by with me.
How You Can Celebrate This Week
What can you do to get involved in Be Kind To Animals Week?
- Take your pup for an extra walk. Mom took us for an extra walk this week, to a place I have never been to. We will post about that tomorrow.
- Volunteer at an animal shelter to help out animals that are less fortunate.
- Donate food or other supplies to a shelter for the animals who can really use it.
Don’t chase squirrels or rabbits during this week.Forget it! Not possible, and they are critters anyway, not animals.
- Give your dog or cat some extra scratches behind the ears, belly rubs, or whatever it is that they enjoy.
