National Faux Fur Friday

National Faux Fur Friday

Fur wasn’t always the fashion statement piece that it is now. In fact, our ancestors from thousands of centuries ago hunted and killed animals for their fur solely out of necessity. From birth, most animals are gifted with soft, thick hair that keeps them warm through cold seasons, but humans aren’t. So taken over by their need to survive, our ancestors made the very first fur coats to protect themselves during wintertime. As time went by, fur coats started becoming a symbol of wealth among the people. Anybody who was anybody had a fur coat. However, not everyone was willing […]

International Ninja Day

Espionage, strategy, and secrecy—those are the skills of a ninja. Dressed in all black for maximum stealth, these silent warriors are famous for their ambush attacks and disappearing acts.

National Pie Day

Do you love pie? If so, then you’re in luck! It’s National Pie Day and everyone is encouraged to celebrate the occasion by baking, cooking, or simply buying their favorite pie! National Pie Day was founded by an engineer, brewer, and teacher named Charlie Papazian in 1975 when he declared that the special day is observed every 23rd of January—his birthday. However, because pie is such a crowd favorite, it’s also celebrated on the 1st of December! Pretty amazing, right? While most would think there’s a deeper meaning behind the pie-filled holiday, it’s actually just born out of Papazian’s love […]

How to Have a Pet-Friendly Thanksgiving

How to Have a Pet-Friendly Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of the most treasured holidays in the United States—it’s also one of the busiest. Everything, from grocery shopping and food prepping to setting up home decorations and sending out invitations, needs careful planning. However, for pet parents, there are a few more things to consider. Thanksgiving is a food-centered celebration and with most pets being avid eaters, it’s so easy for them to accidentally ingest something that they shouldn’t. On top of that, strangers going in and out of the household can lead to feelings of stress, anxiety, and discomfort to some pets. We believe that pets […]

National Reptile Awareness Day

National Reptile Awareness Day

National Reptile Awareness Day A lot of us go absolutely crazy for furry animals, but let’s be honest, oftentimes we overlook—or even avoid—reptiles. They may not be as fluffy as the creatures we’re used to, but they’re just as important and deserving of recognition as any other species. Some of us may not be aware, but reptiles play a huge role in the ecosystem, and sadly, many of them are already on the brink of extinction. That’s why each year, on October 21, we celebrate National Reptile Awareness Day, a holiday where everyone is encouraged to learn about these wonderful […]
