Celebrate National Cat Day

As Halloween nears, and black cat silhouettes with backs arched and hackles raised appear on every doorstep, we are reminded that National Cat Day, October 29th, is approaching. Unlike Halloween, however, National Cat Day is a time to banish all the spooky superstition surrounding these animals. It’s a day to honor felines as individuals, to shatter the old trope that cats are lazy, aloof creatures.

According to Petcentric, National Cat Day is behind a campaign to encourage the adoption of 10,000 cats all across the country. October 29th just might be the perfect day to hit up a shelter and rescue a homeless cat! Otherwise, just show the kitty already in your life that she isn’t just a bewhiskered obstacle course you must contend with when you’re fumbling for the hallway light switch. Shower her with treats or buy her a kitty condo (although a cardboard box seems to work just as well). Above all, just be there! Cats are fiercely independent animals, so they’re sometimes easy to overlook. But when you feel that little body curling figure-eights around your leg, take a minute to devote your attention entirely to her. A nice, long scratch behind the ears will speak volumes on National Cat Day.
