All month: Spay / Neuter Awareness Month; Pet Dental Health Month; Cat Health Month
Today through March 1st: Cadbury Bunny Tryouts
It’s time to make your fur babies glow! Cadbury starts the third annual Cadbury Bunny Tryouts. Last year’s winner, two-legged Coonhound Lieutenant Dan, will be a guest judge before passing the coveted rabbit ears on to this year’s lucky winner. The trial versions are open until March 1st. The vote will take place from March 10th to 17th. This leads to the eagerly awaited announcement of the winners on March 23rd. The new Cadbury Bunny will appear on screens across America as the new star of the legendary Cadbury Clucking Bunny. The winner will also receive a cash prize of $ 5,000. And to give something back to the animals that have given us so much joy over the past year, Cadbury will continue its work with the ASPCA. This is the third year of this partnership and Cadbury will make a donation of $ 15,000 to the ASPCA to help advance its mission to protect and care for animals.

February 20: National Love Your Pet Day
Of course we love our pets EVERY day! So it makes sense to remember our beloved companions with a special day. Today, give your cat a little extra affection and pampering to show them how much you love them.
February 23: World Spay Day
This day was launched in 1995 by the Doris Day Animal League as Spay Day USA and is intended to raise awareness of the importance of spay / neuter. There are so many benefits to spaying / neutering your pet: it improves their health and longevity; helps curb undesirable behaviors such as spraying and roaming; and helps reduce the overpopulation of homeless pets. You can help spread the word by promoting spay / neuter programs on social media using the hashtag #worldspayday. More information is available at dorisdayanimalfoundation.org/work/world-spay-day.
February 26th: Tom and Jerry – the movie
One of the most popular rivalries in history continues in this mind-blowing mix of classic animation and live action. When Jerry moves into New York’s best hotel on the eve of the “Wedding of the Century”, the event planner is dying to get rid of him, so of course Tom gets the job! But the cat and mouse fight that followed threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and maybe even the hotel itself. To add to the chaos, a devilishly ambitious co-worker conspires against all three, forcing the cat-and-mouse duo to do the unthinkable – work together to save the day. Directed by Tim Story, the film stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong. The release is scheduled for February 26, 2021. You can find the trailer here.
