National Kids and Pets Day

Today is National Kids and Pets Day, probably not for us being that we're in the UK. But who could pass up the opportunity to celebrate such a fantastic day? Not us!

So you ask, why should pets have their very own kids? The answer is simple really, because they're fun, fun, fun. Not only do they present endless play opportunities, but they are also very handy to have around when you need to pass the blame of some misdeed or other. Invaluable I am sure you will agree.

Personally we have two of our own kids at home and over the years we have grown very attached to them, but it is important to remember to train your kid. After all, a trained kid is a happy kid. The main areas that kids should be training in is treat giving, petting and playing. The latter can be especially fun for both kitties and doggies, kids can be trained to play a large variety of games, including but not exclusive to; ball throwing, wand waving and red dot pointing.

It is also a well known fact that kids make excellent bed warmers, so be sure to snuggle close. Unfortunately due to their erratic nature they do not make the best lap sitters, this does tend to improve with age and the amount of mind rotting TV and video games made available to your kid.

It's not all sweetness and light however, if you're unfortunate enough to have come into possession of a defective kid they have a few technical issues, such as tail pulling and petting in the wrong direction! There are two courses available to you to remedy this. Scratch and bite! Although general avoidance is recommended.

So there you have it, here at The Paw Relations we feel that the benefits of owning a kid far outweigh the drawbacks. So don't delay, get yourself a kid today!

  1. Some children however just have the right cattitude from the word go. I wish you all the best with the two you live with.

  2. Its almost everyday pets & kids day
    We are giving always our love !!

  3. Child-training can be a long and sometimes arduous experience, but it's worth it. It's best if they start learning when they are very young--gives them time to develop all the skills they will need as kitty/doggy/other slaves. Er, personal assistants!

  4. we doesn't haf any kids to train. that's ok though -we has enuf prollem wif adults

  5. Yup, it's all in the training!!!!!!

  6. I have no kids to train here--although I do like the Male's son--but he is off in Japan with the navy...

  7. This is all good advice. Our Mommy had a great trainer when she was young, Mercedes, and she grew up to have over 20 far!

  8. Very astute comments, Thomas, Charlie, Lola and Shen! Your collective experience speaks volumes.

    I can only go on memory because my kid is now 31 years old with two kitties of his own. They seem to think he's a pretty good cat daddy, though.

    If you raise your kids right that's what will happen when they grow up!

  9. It's a shame you didn't add a photo and enter our giveaway, which ends in 10 minutes. Don't suppose you happen to have a photo of a kid and a pet to go with your post?

  10. Great post, although we are the only kids our Mommy can have so we'll have to take your word for it!...Happy week...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  11. How purry true!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Shen!

  12. We've never had to live with kids, so we don't know anything about training them. We have had a couple visit, and we hide in the closets and under the beds!

  13. I always loved animals, and as a child always worried about their welfare. Here I am at seventy and still am loving them and worrying about all animals.
    Training kids to love and respect animals and to treat them with kindnesss is so important.
    The love a child and his pet share is so special.

  14. We wish we had some kids to train - we think it would be so fun!!

  15. Our kid is spoiling ICE the most but we can't blame him.......ICE is a great ball player. In the evening, especially Movie time, we kitties get to snuggle the big kid!=^Y^=

  16. kids and training is always an adventure.
