National Cat Day October 29th

National Cat Day: October 29th

 

It's National Cat Day! Today is the purr-fect day for all of those of us who are cat parents to wish our fur babies a happy day. It's also the purr-fect day to show our cats just how much we love and appreciate them.  As NationalCatDay.com says: "we dream about, marvel at, and celebrate the lives of cats."

 

Adopt, don't shop for a catNational Cat Day was founded 15 years ago 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  "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 Purr-fect 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, if you can during the pandemic.

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 to sunbathe.

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! (Although this may have to wait until after the pandemic.)

Good Afternoon Nina Hollander  and Happy Cat Day to Mr.Marlow .I had no idea it was National Cat Day but thanks to you I now know. Cleo's treats and food were delivered today and she was thrilled she loves to play in the box. Surprise for her I ordered a ball yesterday that will hold her treats and she can push the ball and her treats will come out - Amazon will deliver today just in time to Celebrate National Cat Day

Hannah Williams hi Hannah... Mr. Marlow wishes Miss Cleo a Happy National Cat Day. He's thrilled that she gets a new toy with treats. Poor Mr. Marlow doesn't have toys, as the dog destroys them all! And interestingly he's not much for cat treats... just his food.

Hello Nina Hollander love this picture of Mr. Marlow. This ball also holds dry cat food. Cleo loves her treats. While I am working at the computer she taps my on the arm or shoulder to let me know she expects a treat. I give her a lecture she can not live on sweets alone and tell her she must eat her food first. Amazingly she understands and walks over to her bowl and starts to eat

Hannah Williams cats are just so smart. I have to stand guard over Mr. M while he eats so the dog doesn't eat his food. When Binbo comes into the kitchen his path is always past the cat's food bowl, just in case there's something there to swipe.

Hi Nina- when I saw that it was national cat day, I thought of you and the many other cat lovers here. I wish that people would take care of their pets so that we would not have so many stray cats and dogs who are left out on their own.

Morning Nina.

It has been a long time since we've had a cat.  Once our Sheldon is no more, we are finished.  i know there are many in the Rain who owns them.  They are delightful

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD hi Debb... I was "buried" with work yesterday I didn't get to see much of anything on Facebook yesterday (or most of this week, for that matter). And you're right... Mr. Marlow is one handsome dude... and very sweet tempered, as well.
