   National Animal Holidays to Celebrate!
Animal Holidays?  Ohhhh yes we have them!
Most people don't even realize that our Monthly Calendar is packed full of holidays held in honor of our pets and animals in nature. Some are National holidays, International holidays and some are known as Unofficial Holidays). Many of the creators of these holidays are nature lovers, animal rights organizations and save the species organizations as well-

The word "animal" comes from the Latin word animale, neuter of animalis, and is derived from anima, meaning vital breath or soul. In everyday colloquial usage, the word usually refers to non-human animals. The biological definition of the word refers to all members of the Kingdom Animalia, including humans."

In honor of all Animal Holidays
This is a short video of "Jasper the raccoon" playing with a cat toy in the back yard of the cottage. Raccoons play just like cats do and it's so much fun to watch! Jasper is a wild animal and not a pet, but does come to visit and play with my cats frequently. And "No" Jasper is not in a pen. My cats are house cats and not allowed to run loose- so I have a pen for my cats where they can come and go- in and out of the house as they please, but can't go outside of the pen. I'm taking the video from inside the cats pen. :)

Little Jasper is known for sitting by the pen and watching the cats play with their toys. Sooner or later Jasper starts reaching through the fence trying to get in on the fun. Many times he/she (I don't know if it's a girl or a boy raccoon) is lucky enough to steel away a toy as you see from the video; and he/she  plays up a storm.
I love all animals and it's a joy to watch them :)
