INTERNATIONAL CAT DAY

Caturday, August 8, is a Feline celebration or #InternationalCatDay according to the Social Media, started by the International Fund for Animal Welfare in 2002. Well, furry meow paw totally deserve that!

International Cat Day is a full 24 hours of recognition and veneration of one of humanity’s oldest and most beloved pets. The festivities were put together for the first time in 2002 by IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, among other animal rights groups, to celebrate the most popular pet on the planet.

An estimated 500 million cats are thought to be frolicking in neighbors’ gardens across the world, which means that most every extended family is bound to have an aunt with more kittens than former husbands, whatever the country or climate. And that’s great, because owning a cat has been shown to improve mental health and to relieve stress, anxiety and depression.

So when it’s raining cats and dogs outside and you don’t have someone to cuddle with, any black, ginger, Persian, Siamese, Burmese, Bengal, Shorthair, Munchkin, Balinese, RagaMuffin or any old stray cat will do the trick.

So roll out the red carpet and the catnip for your furry feline friend, because International Cat Day is that one day a year when black cats bring good luck and cat eye sunglasses match your entire wardrobe.

Captive Animals Tasting Freedom For The First Time

From dogs and chimps to lions and tigers, animals are held in captivity by humans around the world. We harm them for lab experiments that often have better, cruelty-free alternatives. We keep exotic animals in rusty cages and call it “entertainment”.

But there is hope.

Huge-hearted humans dedicate their lives to rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing injured animals to sanctuaries and the wild. And that moment when an animal gets his first taste of real freedom?

It is unforgettable for animals and humans alike.

Find out more about these freed animals here, and check out the Beagle Freedom Project, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Born Free USA, and the Humane Society of the U.S. to learn how to help.

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!
