International Cat Day
International Cat Day is an entire 24 hour celebration of the beloved cat, one of the oldest and most loved pets in human history. Any cat who would have a conversation about cats with humans would likely say that every day should be celebrated worldwide. This is the one day each year that humans have reserved for this purpose.
It’s International Cat Day!
International Cat Day was first celebrated by IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) in 2002. This day was established to honor and celebrate the beloved pet cat, along with other animal rights organizations.
There are an estimated 500 million cats living in neighbor’s gardens around the globe. This means that almost every extended family will have an aunt with more kittens then her husbands.
It’s great because cats have been proven to be good for your mental health, as well as to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. On International Cat Day, if it rains cats and dogs outside, and you don’t have anyone to cuddle with, any black or ginger cat, Persian, Siamese and Burmese or any other stray cat can do the trick.
International Cat Day is a day when black cats bring good fortune and you don’t have to judge for spoiling your cat-cat.
International Cat Day is a day for cats that can be as low-key as they like. One great way to get started is for everyone to take a cat nap.
Some cats are more outgoing than others. Others might just run under the covers and ignore the occasion. These ideas can be used by humans to make International Cat Day fun for everyone.
International Cat Day is about more than just having fun, it’s about raising awareness about the plight many cats without homes.
Volunteers are needed to care for and bathe cats. Visit your local shelter to find out what help is available. Let staff know how much you appreciate their efforts!
You don’t have the time? That’s okay! International Cat Day is a great opportunity to donate money to help a local shelter or animal shelter that might struggle to pay for the care and maintenance of cats in crisis. You can also donate to a larger charity that helps these cats. These are some of the options you can try:
Adopting a cat will bring love into your home and make a difference in someone’s life. Cats are easy to care for, they can be independent and are great roommates. They are also good with children. There are many cats that need loving homes and families to care for them.
On this special day, cat eye sunglasses are a great match for any outfit. You can choose the headband with the cat ears or a striped cap (in the style of Dr. Seuss‚Äôs The Cat in the Hat), slippers with cats on them, or go all out and wear a complete Catwoman suit. With a little acknowledgement of International Cat Day, you can do anything that is needed today!
International Cat Day is a great day to remind your cat to be healthy. You can use it to contact your vet to schedule a checkup and preventative appointment to ensure that everything is in order. It’s a good idea to ensure your cat is regularly seen by a veterinarian to check on their health and happiness.
This is the ideal day to gift your cat a new pet, a bed, or some gourmet food. To show your support for your four-legged friend, throw a party to celebrate International Cat Day. If you don’t own a cat, you might consider buying supplies to give to your local shelter.
If you can’t find one locally, you might enjoy Call me Kat, a sit-com about a cat caf√© that stars Mayim Bialik or Swoosie Kurtz.
You can take International Cat Day to the next level by dressing up your adorable furry cat in a costume sure to make cat lovers proud. There are tons of options online for cat costumes, such as cowboy hats, Harry Potter striped scarfs and round cat glasses, feather boas, pirate costumes, and even cats dressed in bunny suits!
