National Pet Day 

Falling on the sixth day of Passover this year, National Pet Day (April 11, 2023) is a special occasion to celebrate and remember our beloved animal companions, past and present. Read this Blessing for Pets to give gratitude to the small creatures in your life!

Blessing for Pets

We give thanks for your animal sensibility

And for the joy you have brought us

Since becoming part of our lives

Whether you are the fruit of the cat tree

Or a beloved companion on long walks

Or yet another kind of creature entirely

Your presence is a blessing

Your every vocalization and need

A reminder of our interconnectedness

Our lives and animal natures coexisting in harmony
