Website of the Day
This website has been named to several “best of” lists, and deservedly so – it has a wealth of fun features for children and adults. Kids can play games, learn more about their favorite characters and much more, while parents can get teaching advice and more.
Number to Know
16: Hours that a cat can remember something, according to www.petinsurance.com. Dogs’ memories last only about five minutes. So if you want to take part today in National Dress Up Your Pet Day, keep that in mind – an offended dog will get over it much more quickly than a cat.
