We would buy treats for our dog and cats, and as a girl I used to put a ribbon around the neck of my favourite cat Bobbie (we had 3 at the time), which he would graciously allow to be there for a while, until he'd had enough and got rid of it.
Our other animals would get treats as well; we gave the 7 goats water crackers, which they adored, and the chickens would get endive.
Nowadays I only have one cat and one dog around the house.
But today still is a special day for the cat, as we got our Viggo from the shelter exactly four years ago.
He has the best life imaginable, with a large garden, plenty of food, loving people and personnel to open doors for him. Not bad eh, for an alley cat?
So, to celebrate today, I'll leave you with some of my favourite animal photos.
Thank you for caring for your animals.
