Memorial Day Remembrance

Today, here in the US, we are celebrating Memorial Day. This is a day to remember all those who have lost their lives serving our country in the armed forces. Today, we reflect on all of the brave, past and present, two-legged and four-legged, and we give thanks for all they have given for the sake of our country.



Happy Memorial Day!
(And to our non-US pals, we wish you a very happy Monday!)

Our Tip of the Day:
We have given this tip many times, and on many occasions, but we would yet again like to take today to remind you to always take into consideration your furbabies' safety during any holiday festivities. If you are having guests over, for example, please keep your kitties and pups safe from escape and heavy foot traffic. Also ensure that your furbaby is not fed any potentially hazardous foods, such as alcohol, chocolate, onion, garlic, or grapes. If fireworks are popular in your area on days such as Memorial Day, and especially if your furbaby is afraid of loud noises, consider shutting windows and curtains, and perhaps turning on some music or the television, in order to keep the effects of the fireworks to a minimum. Your furbaby might also appreciate a calm and quiet area set up especially for them, where they can spend the time, such as during any Memorial Day parties or while fireworks are occurring. It is indeed possible for you to participate in Memorial Day festivities while also keeping your furbabies safe.
