Today is Love Your Pet Day!

Feb. 20 is Love Your Pet Day, so today’s animal fact is pet-related. Did you know that there are 65 million dogs in the United States and 77 million cats? And roughly 75 percent of households own a pet — mine being one of them. So, if you’re a pet fan too, make sure to go home today and pamper that special animal by showing it some love. Here are some ways to do that:

- Play with your animal outside.
- Give it a bath.
- Buy it its favorite toy.
- Get it a special treat.
- Pet it or scratch its back.
- Just spend some extra time with it.

People get very busy with their lives and sometimes forget about the important things in life, one being their pets. While they should be thoughtful of their pets every day, sometimes people need a little reminder of why they love their animals’ cute cuddly faces so much. My puppy is almost too spoiled, but I plan on taking her on a long walk when I get home from work. What will you do for your pet? Please comment below.

For an even better pet day, check out some of the animal-themed products at the Jungle Store and really celebrate your pet in style.
