Thursday is National Dress Up Your Pet Day

 Oh, the humiliation…I know it may come as a shock — there is a Dress Up Your Pet Day. I kid you not!

Be aware that Jan. 14 is National Dress Up Your Pet Day. Yes, some twisted human managed to get a day devoted to this. I realize  that a lot of you actually don’t seem to mind getting dressed up. Some of you even seem to like it. Or maybe you’ve just given up trying to fight the inevitable.

 Even cats are not immune

The only good thing about National Dress Up Your Pet Day is that it’s not just for dogs. It’s for cats, too! And if there’s anyone who hates getting dressed up more than I do, it’s cats.

This Thursday, at dawn, all pets should bring a few treats into the bathroom and lock themselves in. Stay there until Friday. Trust me. An ounce of prevention is worth years of cure. At least until Thursday. Now go run and hide!
