International Cat Day: August 8 - Celebrate Your Favorite Cat!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

It's International Cat Day Today, August 8th!

 

 

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.

Hi Nina Hollander

Great quotes and a fun video to watch! Up until the last few years, we have had a lot of cats and kittens. My son adopted a cat (two times) that was pregnant so they watched a slew of kittens being born. Our last two cats had extremely original names, Fluffy and Mittens! I will honor Fluffy today. She loved boxes and loved to hide. You never knew where you were going to find her.  She is hiding behind some decorative fruit in the corner of my desk. To get there she had to knock something over but nothing was out of place! I never got used to finding her in very odd places! Fluffy

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... wasn't that video a hoot? I don't know how anyone who loves cats wouldn't enjoy it. Love the expression on Fluffy's face. I've never had a cat that didn't like squeezing into any available empty box. I've found that cats are an endless source of amusement when you live with them (and love).

Thanks, Nina, for reminding us of this special day for cat owners.

We do not have cats even though we have a cedar lined cat closet with a cat portal to the stairs from the basement. The previous owner even installed a pet bath in the basement.

I'm guessing your feline had a good day. In fact, betting every day is "pampering the cat" day with Nina.
