National Cat Day
About National Cat Day
Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always observed on October 29
They say “every dog has his day”. So, it’s only fitting that every cat has her day, too. You’d better treat your feline like a queen today. She deserves it, as today is National Cat Day, an October 29 holiday. We got the feeling that today is going to be an absolutely purr-fect day.
National Cat Day was created for several reasons. First, it is a day to celebrate and enjoy some quality time with your feline friend. Treat her royally. Feed her special treats, give her some catnip, and buy her some new toys. Don’t have a cat? Another objective of this day is to encourage people to adopt a cat. When you do so, you’re in for a rewarding experience. There are many animals out there who need your love and care. Another reason for this day is to bring awareness and encourage action for the better welfare of cats. Donate or give your time to a cat or pet rescue organization.
Ways to Celebrate National Cat Day
- Pamper your feline friend in every way imaginable.
- Give your cat some catnip.
- Buy some new toys to play with. Some time with them.
- Get new cat bed.
- Adopt a cat.
- Spend time with them.
“Curiosity killed the cat. But, for I while I was a suspect..” – – Steven Wright
