August 8th is International Cat Day.... if you're a cat lover (like me), you know it's a great day to celebrate "all things feline!" The day is also known as World Cat Day in some circles. International Cat Day was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Cats are one of humanity's oldest and beloved pets (in ancient Egypt cats were considered gods) and today thought to be the most popular pet on the planet.  It's believed there are more than 200 cat breeds.

 

And did you know that you can also send greetings to your fellow cat lovers? Check out these great International Cat Day cards.

 

 

 

 

 

“My relationships with my cats has saved me from a deadly, pervasive ignorance.”

...William S Burroughs

 

“Cats choose us; we don’t own them.”

...Kristin Cast

 

“Time spent with a cat is never wasted.”

...Colette

 

A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.”

...Ernest Hemingway

 

“Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.”

 

...James Herriott

 

How we behave toward cats here below determines our status in heaven.”

...Robert S Heilein

 

 

Here's wishing all my fellow cat lovers and cat parents and their cats a very happy International Cat Day!

Belinda Spillman ~ hi Belinda... I firmly believe that if we had past lives, I was a cat in one of them. If you did have a cat I can pretty much guarantee it would rule the roost and the dogs would know it!

Hi Nina - Sheldon is taking a nap on my lap as I'm commenting this afternoon. I'd wake him up to share the news, but it would just go to his head and he'd want a cake or a mouse.

Hi Nina- I know you're a big cat lover!!! I never had a cat until I moved into my first apartment and we ended up taking in the complex stray. We even took him with us when we moved into our first home. No cats now but I do love them too.

Kathy Streib ~ hi Kathy, except for the years I was in college and my first year of grad school, I've never lived longer than a couple of months without a cat in the house... I've tried and it never quite feels right.

Joe Pryor ~ hi Joe... my first cat was a tabby... got her when I was six years old and loved her to death. Still have a very soft spot in my heart for grey tabbys. I've had Siamese, Abyssinians, Russian Blues, Chartreux and any number of mixed breeds.

I'm sure all the cats will be enjoying their special day today.  Based on the cat lovers I know it won't be any different than any other day.

Although I have 3 dogs and no cats at this time, I will be "cat sitting" a 19 year old whose mom is going on vacation in September. This cat allows only me to service her needs besides her mom. She hides or scares the living daylights out of everyone else. Two other friends have former feral cats that come to me to be petted, totally out of their character, so I believe I am blessed!

Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® ~ good morning, Hella. There is something special about feral cats who will "accept" you. I've often said, there's not been a cat I've met that I didn't like. Sometimes I think I was a cat in a previous life.
