This day no only helps honor those animals giving therapy, but also the handlers who receive the therapy too. It also a day to help raise awareness of the role of animals in aiding in therapy.
A Therapy animal is a form of a service animal, that you would see with a blind person or even a deaf person. In this case, it is usually for those in therapy, such as social, mental, anxiety, etc.
Having and holding a pet can help reduce stresses and anxieties.

Wishing you a purrfet and Happy Easter from Lilly Bug and Joel the Brave. Don’t leave out the Brave part.
Cats love Easter Baskets too, just like we love Easter boxes.
Did you get your cat something for Easter? If so what was it?
We also thank God for sending His Son to die for our hoomans.
I am Joel the Brave and I am not a black cat, but I am a Pink Panther Covered In Magical Coal Dust. Kind of like how the dalmatian puppies in 101 Dalmatians covered them self in coal dust to look like Labradors. However, my coal dust I am covered in is permanent. That means it won’t come off!
Oh yea! It’s magical coal dust! Almost forgot that!

My name is Princess Lillybug Juliet Patterson. Note the Princess part! That means I am the Calico Princess aka Royalty! Just saying!

Well, at least my hoomans call me that. I guess that is because I am so spoiled.
We built this kitty to the tune of We Built This City by Starship.

Maybe I should start a band or just go out singing solo. The Joel the Brave Band. The next hot cat band.
All the lady cats will say … Meeeooow!
On months with 31 days, well instead of one or the other being in charge, we both are in charge. That only happens seven times a year.
Find out when
Joel the Brave is In Charge and when Lilly Bug is In Charge.
Below is an image of both of us on our cat cottage condo.
I, Joel the Brave, like to feed my string. I will fetch my string and bring it to my food bowl, so it can eat too.
I love to play fetch and other games with my String. If you notice, in this picture, there are two strings feeding. Does your cat bring it’s toys or other items to it’s feeding dish?
