Check It Out — It’s Love Your Pet Day

February 20, 2014

Now, I’m not one for obscure holidays (National Nothing Day, anyone?), but when I heard that today is Love Your Pet Day, I knew I had to get on board.

For me, there are so many reasons to celebrate this day. First and foremost, because CG and Ellie make it so simple.


As much as our two look alike, they’re completely different. Ellie inspires me to want to love the way she does – with her whole heart and body every moment, while approaching each day and challenge without pause. Meanwhile, CG is tremendously clever and pensive, consequently you need to earn his love – but at the end of the day, it’s so worth it.

They’re my wobblers, and they’ve changed my life in ways I could never imagine. Living with special needs cats is the new normal for me, and it’s amazing.

And while I’ll certainly give them extra lovin’ tonight, the best part about Love Your Pet Day is that it’s a holiday we can celebrate 24/7. Could you ask for anything more?

In honor of Love Your Pet Day, I want to hear from you. Why do you love your pet? What makes him or her special?

Please share in the comments! Or if you’d like to send a photo and a few lines about your pet, you can email me! If I get a few comments and emails, I’ll pull them together into a post!

    This is my CH kitty Chanel. I never heard of CH before and I did not know she had it when I got her. After I adopted her, we noticed how different her walk was from other cats and that she fell over a lot. After a ton of research on what it could be (some very scary stuff!) and a vet visit, I learned she had CH. Ok, so this is new to me. I had just lost my 18 year old cat a week ago and now I was afraid I’d lose Chanel. Thankfully, being diagnosed with CH was not a death sentence! We just fell more in love with her and were thrilled she was ours to care for. She is so sweet! She greets us at the door when we come home, sits at my feet when I blow dry my hair, sleeps on me all toasty and warm and purrs so loud that I call her motorboat! My family and I love her and have embraced her special needs with care and understanding. When we found out she had CH, I called the woman I adopted her from to ask why this was not disclosed. She apologized and said we could return her. Return her? What? We love her. We love her wobbly butt! I said, “Thank you but no. We will keep her and enjoy her for many years. Goodbye”. And with that, I hung up.
