International Cat Day August 8th. Time To Celebrate All Things Feline!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage | Charlotte, NC

 August 8th Is International Cat Day!

 

 

International Cat Day.... if you're a cat lover (like me), it's a great day to celebrate "all things feline!" The day is also known as World Cat Day. International Cat Day was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare.

 

Cats are one of humanity's oldest and most beloved pets and today are thought to be the most popular pet on the planet. As Terry Pratchett said, "in ancient times cats were worshipped as gods and they have not forgotten this."  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.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... I'd have been heartbroken to see that. I feed several neighborhood strays each day and I worry when one of them doesn't show up on schedule.

Michael Jacobs thanks, Michael. I think when it comes to cats they think it's "their" day every day... so no such thing as belated wishes!

I have a seller with 5 cats and his girlfriend has about 10. The cats are their lives and mission. They do cat rescue too. I wonder if they knew about this International day.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson hi Sally... never could understand those people who insist cats can't love or be devoted. That has never been my experience with any cat I had.

Gloria Todor hi Gloria, when my Tutti and Frutti passed on at the ages of 17 and 18 with two dogs in the house at that time I figured we didn't need to add a cat to the mix. Well, that lasted about 6 weeks and I was off to the shelter. That's when I adopted my Oliver 11 years ago and the rest, as they say is history! Can't imagine my life without my Oliver who thinks he's a dog in cat clothing!

Fred Griffin hi Fred... like bookends, they are... I still miss some of my kitties that have moved on to kitty heaven. Each was unique with their own personality and as a result memorable.

Fred Griffin that's an amazing picture with the deer, Fred. And more amazing that were able to "capture" the scene.
