To start the day …. “National Cat Day”!!


~~October 30, 2014~~

“What greater gift than the love of a cat?”

~~Charles Dickens~~

I’m a cat person. I can’t believe I realized it late last night. Here I am, making up and celebrating. I couldn’t let this day go by without celebrating my “Kitty” … aka “Double Trouble”. Look for her in the included gallery.

~NATIONAL CAT DAY~

National Cat Day was founded by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige. It is a celebration that takes place on October 29th every year in the United States. The National Cat Day website states that the holiday was first celebrated in 2005 “to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.”

The day is supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit organization which also works to encourage pet adoption. An international cat day was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare.

Paige’s suggestions for celebrating National Cat Day

Spend the day taking photos of your cat and posting them on Facebook. (Obviously.)

Buy your cat a fun new bed, treat or toy. 

Commission a custom portrait of your cat — perhaps one of him or her posing with the “Mona Lisa.”  

Brush your cat to eliminate excess fur and hairballs.

Buy your cat a collar and tag with your name and number, just in case they get outside and happen to become lost — your kids will be so glad you did.

Enjoy the holiday, cat lovers!
