Many animals are popular pets here in the US, but did you know many of our pets come from different countries? Pets are popular world-wide, and every country has its favorite. We have dog breeds that originate from nearly every continent; our pet rabbits and ferrets came from Europe; Sugar Gliders started in Australia and South East Asia; many popular snakes come from Africa; our favorite large birds come from South America, Africa and Australia; and some of the most popular small mammals, such as chinchillas and guinea pigs, come from South America. Talk about international pets! For fun, do a search online or at your library to find out where your pets first came from. Below is a list of simple animals translated in to a variety of languages.

Cat String Toy: Knot the base of an 18″ length of gimp with a jingle bell, add about 6 to 8″ of pony beads, and knot the end carefully. Make sure both ends are secure so that your cat doesn’t end up breaking the string toy. Have fun!
