Cats are great companions. Most cats have homes where they are loved and well taken care of. Sadly, a good number is homeless and abandoned, thus lacking the attention they deserve. Therefore, National Cat Day was declared to help raise more awareness of why and how cats should be taken care of.

What is the history of National Cat Day?

National Cat Day came to existence in 2005. Colleen Paige, an animal activist, established this day to help spread awareness on cats. According to Collen, many homeless and abandoned cats are a result of the negligence and ignorance of the owners. Collen’s move to establish National Cat Day was embraced by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The organization aimed to encourage the public to adopt cats and educate people on the does and don’ts of raising these feral colonies.

Why celebrate National Cat Day?

We need to celebrate National Cat Day because cats are our companions. They are easy to maintain, and they quickly adapt to any home environment. Their friendly and chatty nature makes us love them even more. They might be non-verbal, but you can communicate them in so many ways. So, celebrate National Cat Day to encourage others to embrace and care for these furry mammals.

When is National Cat Day

All cat lovers observe National Cat Day on October 29th. The day has been in observance since 2005.

Things to do on National Cat Day

National Cat Day is a big day for all cat lovers. It’s time to treat your cat, show it more love, and encourage others to own a cat.

If you do not have a cat, National Cat Day is the best time to adopt one. Pet shelters are flooded with homeless and abandoned cats every day, and taking the initiative to reduce the burden would be much appreciated.

You could also donate necessary pet items to a local shelter. By donating warm blankets, food, or even pet toys, you will be doing a great job ensuring the lives of the cats in the shelters are greatly improved. Even if you can’t adopt one at the time, helping them live a more comfortable life is already enough reason to make the little animals happier.

National Cat Day is also a time to treat your cat with its favorite snack, a new toy, or relaxing spa treatment. You could also hire a professional photographer and have the picture of your little friend framed.

Whatever you decide to do, ensure the initiative is geared towards celebrating cats.
