The Fourteen Holy Helpers were invoked for protection against diseases or death of animals too (such as with cattle)-though I’m not entirely sure if they were always blessed.

I know in the Eastern Churches specific animals (such as horses with Sts Florus and Laurus) were/are associated with specific Saints and feast days-which would include blessing the said animals too.

I don’t know, it still just seems weird, and a little bit creepy-pagan. Definitely not for me.

It's Catholic. Animals were (and still are!) a big part of people's lives. If an animal was your livelihood would you not want God's blessing upon it?
