Hi, hello there!
It was my 1st time to hear about the National Cat Day, & I only knew about it from Facebook, before I realize it was only celebrated in America. Oh well, actually I just start to think of celebrating it at my country, haha..
By the way, to those who unfamiliar with National Cat Day, and it was founded in intention "to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us."
The day is supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit organization which also works to encourage pet adoption.
That's sounds great, eh? So what can we do during this National Cat Day?
Here are some of the points to celebrate this special day:
"We encourage you to spoil your fur baby a little more on National Cat Day than any other day (you don't want them to get too demanding do you?) by buying them a new toy drenched in cat nip, giving them something simply scrumptious to eat, offering LOTS more cuddling and making a donation to your local shelter in their honor. The best way you can celebrate though is to save a life! So if you can....ADOPT....don't shop. Estimates reveal that there are approximately 4 million cats entering shelters every year with 1-2 million being euthanized. Often cats are overlooked and under-appreciated because they don't usually have jobs like dogs. But cats still lower blood pressure, offer unconditional love and companionship, tons of laughs and alert their owner to danger. Many cats have been named heroes." - SOURCE
