Wetnose Animal Aid
Wetnose Animal Aid is a non-profit organisation set up in 2000 to support the smaller animal rescue centres that care for sick or abused animals in the UK.
National Wetnose Day
This is an annual fun day held in September to raise funds for animal rescue centres around the UK. On Friday 25th September 2015 everyone is invited to join in the fun to help raise funds and awareness for this very important cause.
Pose With a Nose
A fun way to show your support is to buy a nose (available from the Wetnose website) and to take a photo of yourself posing with your nose (don’t forget to include your pet in the picture too). You can then raise awareness by sharing on social media.

And don’t foget to join me on the day when I will be posting a pic of myself with my lovely wet nose!
Black Cat Appreciation Day
Today is also Black Cat Appreciation Day. Did you know that black cats and black and white cats are the least likely to get adopted?
Unfortunately, there are some crazy reasons why people just won’t adopt a black cat, such as believing very outdated myths and superstitions about them.
But we cat lovers know that black cats are beautiful. They are not unlucky or in league with the devil. They are just cats. As sweet, affectionate, and as gentle as any other cat.
So if you’re looking to adopt a feline companion, please consider a black or black and white cat.
Here are 10 Reasons to Adopt a Black Cat (from CatChat.org)
- Black cats are the least likely to be adopted
- Black cats look sleek and sophisticated
- Holding a black cat is very slimming!
- Black cats will match any decor
- A lint brush isn’t required for a black-tie affair
- When you love a black cat, luck is on your side
- Black cats are like onyx, a beautiful gem
- They don’t care what colour YOUR hair is!
- Love knows no colour
- Adopting a black cat may be lucky for you… and it’s definitely lucky for them!
