But give me any reason to celebrate our fabulous feline friends, and I’m all about it. So let’s do a little something special for our kitties today!
National Cat Day was founded six years ago by Colleen Paige, a pet and lifestyle expert and animal welfare advocate. She wanted a day to draw attention to the number of homeless cats in shelters and rescues still waiting for their forever homes, and give cat lovers (like us!) another special reason to celebrate our own cats and the unconditional love and companionship they give us every single day.
Her goal — and it’s a big and GREAT one! — is to get 10,000 cats adopted on National Cat Day each year. How wonderful would that be?
