Today, the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. He is patron saint of Italy (along with St. Catherine of Siena), of animals and the environment, and is one of the most loved saints in Christianity. Many churches hold pet blessings on or around his feast. "Prayer of St. Francis" is an adaptation of a prayer attributed to him (though in fact it is of more recent vintage). You might want to play this for your own pets.
As an added bonus, the animal service from The Vicar Of Dibley.
