Cat Herders Day: : Have you ‘herd’ the news?

Have you 'herd' the news? Dec. 15 is Cat Herders Day in the U.S.A! Despite its name, this annual “holiday” is not really about fabulous felines. Created by the folks at, well, Wellcat, today is actually about tackling a task, problem or job that seems nearly impossible or exceptionally complicated – like herding cats. And with the holidays right around the corner, even the most mundane task may seen overwhelming. Between buying and wrapping all those gifts, decorating the inside and outside of the house, constant cleaning and preparing the big holiday meal, it's no wonder we're stressed out! But no worries – today is all about embracing those hurdles head-on! And just in case you happen to know any honest-to-goodness cat herders, today is for them too!

Please consider opening your heart and your home to an amazing cat (or dog) just waiting for a home. Many shelters are inundated with abandoned, neglected, unloved and unwanted cats and dogs. Sadly, many of those beautiful animals will be euthanized through no fault of their own. Please visit your local animal shelter or Humane Society and give a fabulous feline or pooch a much-deserved ‘furever’ home, before it is too late.

December 15 is also National Cupcake Day! And for more holiday fun, please visit:
