In fact, Be Kind to Animals Week is the oldest commemorative week in all of U.S. history.

It is observed during the first week in May, which means it starts this Sunday.

We're probably the "kind" of people who are always kind to animals, but I just thought I'd pass this on, since I actually just found out myself!

I have some other important news that I also just discovered, which will be in another post. If you have dogs or cats, you'll really need to be aware of another "difficult truth". I just found out about it yesterday, and it's a medicine commonly given that could create blindness in your pet. (and has!)
