Looking for a way to celebrate our feline friends this month? Here are some fun July cat activities.
NOTE: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many events have been cancelled or gone virtual.
All month: National Lost Pet Prevention Month
Wednesday, July 1: ID Your Pet Day
This is a great time to ensure your cat’s ID is updated – before one of the biggest days of the year when cats and dogs run away due to 4thof July celebrations. Update your cat’s ID tag, and get her microchipped. If she’s already microchipped, update your contact information with the national pet recovery database that your chip was registered with. Microchipped cats are more likely to make it home.
Wednesday, July 8: Kitten Care Webinar
The final of the three webinars hosted by The International Cat Association (TICA) and Dr. Elsey’s Cat Products, partnering with National Kitten Coalitions looks at fading kitten syndrome. “Fight the Fade” will provide information that helps to identify FKS, recognize early signs of “fading,” how to take appropriate actions and learn what can be done to prevent some cases of fading kitten syndrome from ever occurring.
