History of Pet Owners Independence Day

Thomas & Ruth Roy of Well cat Holidays was the creator of Pet Owners Independence Day. However, there is not any evidence about the first celebration with a detail place. The creators of This Day came up with this idea of making pets go to work in their place and thus keeping pet owners at home all day. The reason for this celebration is because most of the pets are unemployed, sleeping all day without even taking out the trash. Pets are asked to do some small work as a way for pet owners to have the same time off as their pets. Besides, you can spend time on eating and sleeping all day or you can play with your pet such as catching some mice and gnawing bones to feel your pet's touch.

How to celebrate the day

On Pet Owners Independence Day, your pet will do some daily tasks for you such as throw the garbage, cook and adjust the lights when you leave/arrive the room. If your pet can do these things for you, you will achieve a success in celebrating the holiday. Most likely you will have to celebrate the holidays by doing things with your pet. Something they usually do such as lying in the sun, napping, cuddling, chewing on things, playing with loads and running around the house for no reason at all. If you're switching roles with your dog, you can chase some cats, and if you're switching roles with your cat, you can get some strength training by chasing the birds. If you don't have a pet, you can still act like an animal!
