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"
This year we're sharing one of the (many) lizards who visit us. This little guy seems very happy behind the clock.
Do you have NOMS friends?
