I was recently informed that February 20 is Love Your Pet Day.
Astonishingly, I have never heard of Love Your Pet Day. Which is odd. I mean, yes, I'm a Library Boss Cat, but believe I should also have all of the rights & privileges of a Pet.
Here's the proof, straight from Google:
I have been a Library Cat/Pet for SIX February 20ths, and never once have I had special treatment for Love Your Pet Day. No cards, extra treats, party hats (thank goodness), or other special recognition for being a Pet.
Do you know what they do here for February 20? Hoodie Hoo Day.
Yup. Hoodie Hoo Day. Instead of honoring me, a Beloved Pet and Library Boss Cat--they all run outside at noon, flap their arms and hoot and fuss at winter, and then rush back in the building to warm up with cake, pink lemonade, and ice cream.
I know that banishing winter is important and all, but so is Loving Your Pet. Punxsutawney Phil said it would end. . . eventually.
SO: I hereby declare February 20 Love Your Pet Day at Thorntown Public Library! My staff humans have ONE WEEK to get their acts together.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
Experiencing six February 20ths of Disgruntledness--all in one day,
