National Kids and Pet Day

Thank you KC of the Cat Blogosphere for making and sharing this neat graphic for today.

The deadline for entries in our Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul giveaway was noon EDT today. We are posting the last group of entries here for you to enjoy. A winning name will be drawn and posted tomorrow, April 27. We wish each of you good luck in the drawing. Again, we are posting them in the order received.

There definitely is not enough room in Trixie's house for both her and Keiko and Luna T. Katt's nephew Christian. But they're still good friends.

Khyra's entry highlights an important aspect of the kids and pet relationship -- preparing to say good-bye.

Samantha and Clementine
posted photos of the granddaughterbean and explained why they believe kids should have pets.

Our family cat-a-blog
has an intriguing title, "Three First born sons and a first cat," and photos to correspond.

A family with three boys should have at least one dog to play with. The grandsons at Scout and Freyja's have two -- plus their Mimi's dogs.

The Zoolatry Human focuses on the getting acquainted process of youngest grandson Arjun and Zoey.

We appreciate the wide range of entries, from young baby meeting pet to children learning there comes a time they have to let go. All the entries, not just those on this page,  havel done a great job of  expressing the special bond between kids and pets.

And if you haven't already voted for Tivi, please pop over and vote for his photo. You won't need to sign up or to vote daily. If you don't know Tivi or why we're voting for him, we have a post on this here.

You can vote here.

Have a purring and tail wagging day.
