Furry Blanket Sunday Selfie and Animal Rights Day

 Happy Sunday 😻

tabby cat

Enjoying my Easy Sunday on my furry blanket on the bed. The blanket is not made of fur - Mum is an animal rights activist and vegan so of course, she wouldn't allow it. It's a furry blanket because just look at how it's covered in my own beautiful fur. Mum brushes the fur from the blanket every day and also grooms me every day but at this time of year my fur falls out a lot. Mum's own hair falls out too.

Mum forgot that it was National Animal Rights Day today. Her head as you know has been all over the place lately. However, every day should be for the animals, shouldn't it? Especially for us felines.

Adopt Don't Shop

Fur has no place in today's world


National Animal Rights Day

Established by the non-profit Our Planet. Theirs Too. in 2011, The National Animal Rights Day (NARD) is an annual day observed in a growing number of countries around the world, on the first Sunday in June, for the purpose of giving a voice to all animals and raising awareness for their rights. It's "Memorial Day" and "Independence Day" for the animals, combined.

On this day, special NARD events are held in major cities around the world, to Commemorate the billions of animals who die every year by human hands, Educate the public about the cruelty-free, plant-based alternatives, and Celebrate the progress that is being made towards ending the suffering of animals. This Day will continue to be observed until all animals are free from enslavement and their rights are established and protected by law.

1. Insects, especially spiders, creep me out. 
2. I could use a refresher class in driving. Because of my anxiety, I haven't driven anywhere in years.
3. Life would be much simpler if people weren't so bloody selfish. 
4. I would like to do a lot of things, but first I have to sort myself out.


1. The carrier creeps me out. 
2. I could use a refresher class in nothing really. 
3. Life would be much simpler if humans weren't cruel. 
4. I would like to be on the cover of a magazine, but first I have to be famous. I am on the cover of two of Mum's books though, so that's much better, isn't it?

Beautiful selfie. I am anti-fur too and I admire that your mom is vegan. Thank you both for these great fill-in answers. I agree that people need to be less selfish. And yes, Athena, you don't need a refresher in anything- cats are perfect. XO

Beautiful selfie sweet Athena and we're all in for animal rights too. Those were good answers. Our Dad doesn't like spiders either but Simon would eat them if he could!

That blanket looks very cozy, Athena, and even better with all your furs on it.

I think cat hair makes a GREAT blanket accessory, Athena! Happy Animal Rights Day.

Cathy Keisha said...

Being ob the cover of books is definitely better!

Athena this is one terrific post! Your selfie is the best and Animal Rights Day is a terrific cause. Thanks for posting about it. Your fill-ins are great. My Mom agrees with your Mum's #4. We hope you and your Mum have a marvellously happy week.

We do not respect animals enough. This cannot last. we must do better in future, every day to make life better for them.

Am sorry that I missed Animal Rights Day.
Making sure to add it to my calendar for next year.
Humans are laying waste to everything; it's time to STOP!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

I've never seen the appeal of fur anything - or snake skin - or anything like that. Animals certainly get the short end of the stick in this world. I remember in high school, there was an advanced biology class that dissected feral cats (I did not take it because of this). At the time - and before the internet - I had no idea what a feral cat was - I just figured they were bad somehow - otherwise why would students be allowed to dissect them?! To find out the truth disgusted me.
