Animal lovers rejoice! September is the celebratory month you probably never knew you needed. Almost every day this month is devoted to a different animal companion, giving us plenty of excuses to show our love to our furry, fishy or feathery friends.
Besides being ‘Happy Cat Month’, you can also look forward to National Iguana Awareness Day, Farm Animals Awareness Week, International Rabbits Day as well as the greatest holiday of the season – Meow Like A Pirate Day.
There’s even a ‘Pet Rock Day’ to celebrate the companion with the lowest maintenance, easiest grooming schedule and cheapest diets.
Regardless of the shape, size or mineral composition of your favourite companion animals, the following famous pets have all found fame throughout history and earned a place in our hearts forever.
