MARCH 3rd – What If Cats Had Opposable Thumbs Day – Imagine a world where our favorite furry companions had thumbs.

MARCH 7th – There are days and weeks set aside to celebrate us furry felines. But what about our human pet sitters? The 27th Annual Professional Pet Sitters Week is March 7-13, 2021. What will they think of next?
MARCH 17th – Happy St. Catrick’s Day – The most famous Irish Poem – Pangur Ban is a poem, written by an Irish monk abroad, that has survived from the 6th Century. Yes, it is about a cat. And centuries later we are still obsessed with cats.
