Global Cat Day
Cats and humans have had a long and complicated relationship. People have been connected to cats for thousands of years, from worshipping them in ancient Egypt to fearing them in the Middle Ages.
Global Cat Day celebrates domesticated cats, which continue to be a joy to many people as pets and friends. Even though their personalities can sometimes be a little snobbish, there is something very soothing about letting a cat snuggle up to you and falling asleep.
If cats are neglected and left alone, they can become stray and cause problems. Their habitats can also become unsafe and unsanitary. Feral cats can spread disease to people, livestock, and wildlife in urban areas, suburbs, and on farms.
According to some researchers, the number of feral cats on the streets in the United States is between 60 and 100 million. These cats breed more cats in an extremely rapid manner. Cats are defenseless creatures and need humans to protect them and stop overpopulation.
National Feral Cat Day was started in 2001 by Alley Cat Allies to raise awareness about the problem of feral cats. It also promotes the creation of more neutering and release programs. In 2017, Global Cat Day was established. The day serves the same purpose as before: to protect those animals who are unable to protect themselves.
Global Cat Day can be celebrated in many ways that are compassionate and beneficial to the world’s cat population. These ideas can be implemented for Global Cat Day.
People and communities alike can benefit from being educated about the difficulties and problems that cats face around the US and world. Alley Cat Allies, which sponsors Global Cat Day, works hard to promote and support a common-sense, sustainable approach to cat rescue. This includes non-lethal neutering, which allows cats to be returned to their natural environment after a minor medical procedure.
A party to celebrate Global Cat Day will help raise awareness and make it fun! Gather your friends, family members, and coworkers who are compassionate towards cats to host a party that is all about them.
If guests wish, they can dress up in cat ears and tails. Serve cat-themed snacks, such as cookies or cupcakes decorated with cute kitten faces.
Make sure to inform guests in advance that the party will raise funds to save and protect kittens and cats’ lives. You can collect money and make a donation to Alley Cat Allies or the Stray Cat Alliance. It can cost as low as $20 to have a shelter perform a spay or neutering procedure. Every dollar counts!
Listen to music related to Global Cat Day to get in the spirit of it! You can create your own playlists on Spotify, Apple Music or any other music platform to celebrate the day.
These songs are cat-themed and can be used to start your playlist.
Spaying and neutering your pet is one of the best things you can do to reduce the number of stray cats. This is a quick procedure that can be performed at your veterinarian’s office and takes only a few days to recover. With a simple, affordable medical procedure it is possible to reduce the cat population.
Participate in Global Cat Day to connect with others and pledge support for compassionate policies that protect all cats. The more signatures on the commitment, it is more powerful for the organization to advocate for better local policies that will help cats live happier lives.
Every day, stray cats of all sizes and colors come to pet shelters looking for homes. If you are looking to adopt a playful, independent and independent cat to your home, contact your local shelter or pet shelter. Global Cat Day is a great opportunity to get inspired! The staff will show visitors the available pets and help them select the right one for their home.
