The day was originally started by The Cat Realm in 2007. Here’s what they said:
The Cat Realm's I Dare you All to make a Not of My Species (NOMS) Friend.
From The Cat Realm: "We declare
August 5th to be NOMS Day, a new international public holiday! Details at our blog; we hope you will celebrate with us! Today we are celebrating Noms Day, a holiday to remember that all beings are equal, to remind ourselves to be tolerant towards everybody, to reach out across species, cultures, nationalities, religions, languages, beliefs and appearances and to come together and embrace our differences We have a few NOMS friends"
We have loads of friends that are not our species....today we're featuring a little guy that's living behind the clock on our back porch............he's a FROG!
Mom calls him Jeremiah and she sings some silly song about him being a Bullfrog and having some mighty fine wine............we think she's a very strange NOMS Mom!!!
Do you have a NOMS friend?
