National Cat Day October 29thToday is National Cat Day
~ which means it's a great day for all cat lovers to wish their cats a happy day and to tell and show them just how much they are loved and appreciated and how much joy and comfort they bring to our lives.

 

Adopt, don't shop for a catNational Cat Day was founded in 2005 by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige "to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats needing rescue, as well as to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their lives for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us."  Colleen Paige's message continues to be that of "adopt, don't shop." And that's also why #1 on my list of 15 Ways To Celebrate National Cat Day below is "adopt a cat from your local shelter and give it a fur-ever home."

 

 

15 Ways To Celebrate National Cat Day:

1. Adopt a cat (or two) from your local shelter or cat rescue and give it a "fur-ever" home.

2. Donate blankets, food and toys to your local shelter or cat rescue organization.

3. Volunteer at your local pet shelter.

4. Write your Congressman and ask that he/she support the ban of kitten mills and gas chambers in your state.

5. Bake tuna cookies for your cat.

6. Have a safety check of your home to make sure it's safe for your cat.

7. Spend the day taking photos of your cat and posting them on your Facebook page.  

8. Assist an ill or elderly neighbor by cleaning their cat’s litter box and playing with their cat.

9. Commission a custom portrait painted of your cat or hire a pet photographer for a photo shoot.

10. Buy your cat a fun new toy, bed or treats! 

11. Make a window perch for your cat to lay in the sun.

12. Brush your cat to eliminate excess fur and hairballs and while you're at it, give your cat a calming massage.

13. Paint your face, wear kitty ears or dress in cat related fashion.

14. Buy your cat a collar and tag with your name and number so it's easy to identify your cat just in case he/she "escapes."

15. Host a National Cat Day party and invite all your friends and their cats!

Good morning Nina. As usual I missed it.  If I had one that would mean I would have to let my other two four legged family members go, that is not happening...

Nina- we don't have a cat anymore but our first one was the apartment cat that everyone kept fed.  We eventually became his full time parents and he gave us so much joy!

I missed this...cats have "A day."  Oh well, being a dog fan I can take solace in knowing dogs have many days (dog days of summer!).

   This is an exciting week for my cats, Happy Cat and Mrs. Lloyd.  We are doing some major renovations to the house; the cats cannot be under feet, so we loaned them to some good friends who live on acreage.  So far, the cats are enjoying themselves!
