It’s Love Your Pet Day

Sam, Holidog, Kitty, and GeorgeWe have some very recognizable and lovable faces here at Holiday World. No, I’m not just talking about our staff – I’m talking about our mascots!

Safari Sam, Holidog, Kitty Claws, and George the Eagle pose for a lot of pictures every day.

But our mascots aren’t the only important animals in the lives of our staff.

To celebrate National Love Your Pet Day, we want to share pictures of our pets and tell you why we love them.

On to the pictures!

First up is Amanda from Entertainment and her dog, Bama. She has a big personality and loves her toy Santa. Bama even likes Amanda enough to take selfies and use Snapchat filters during playtime!

Angie from Sales shared a photo of her cat, Sally Whiskers. Sal Gal is 14 years old and loves Angie, bacon, and broccoli! Angie has to eat quickly when she doesn’t want to share her bacon and is very happy that Sally chose her to be “her person.”

Anthony from Maintenance has two pets to share! First up is Haven. She’s a chihuahua but nobody told her that. She thinks she’s a miniature golden retriever. She loves going for car rides and snuggling up for naps.

Here’s me with my little one, Luna. I love when she brings me her favorite toy when I get home from work. She enjoys playing tag with her sisters when we visit family.

Lori from Attractions sent in this photo with her cat, Elsa. She says Elsa is spirited, unpredictable, fiercely independent, and a bit clumsy. (Some say she’s the cat version of Lori.)

Up next is Lori with Cooper. You may have seen Lori at Holiday World Services. She loves that Cooper is soft, cute, sweet, and cuddly. He’s extremely playful and tug of war is his favorite game.
