World Animal Day is celebrated around the world each year on October the 4th. It originally started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. Today, animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are held in locations all around our world. The 4th of October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it happens to be the feast day of Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and the environment.
So in our house the furry beasts are all a flutter…as you can plainly see from these photos.
