International Cat Day 8th

This post is for all the feline lovers out there. I don’t have a cat now because my husband is allergic. I miss my cat Truffles so much. We spent 30 minutes in his room, away from the dogs, just lying on the floor playing with kitty crack and playing the winky wink game.

I have to give a special shout-out to Caz of Invisibly Me who loves cats even if her cat doesn’t always play nice.

International Cat Day is a celebration which takes place on 8 August of every year. It was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare.[1][2] It is a day to raise awareness for cats and learn about ways to help and protect them.

In 2020 custodianship of International Cat Day passed to International Cat Care,[3] a not-for-profit British organization that has been striving to improve the health and welfare of domestic cats worldwide since 1958.

Cats have always been considered important on a worldwide scale because they are worshipped in many religions and their remains have been found even in the ancient tombs of Egypt.

They have been companions of humans from the day they were born and this is why they deserve a day of respect to themselves. However, humans have harassed cats in various ways by not taking good care of them, abusing them, harassing them or not feeding them.

The International Cat Day is about learning what the sole purpose of a day like this is, the history of cats throughout the ages and the way cats should be treated in today’s society.

Last but not least, cats may not be for everyone but this is to let people know how this day evolved and why it is celebrated in hundreds of countries worldwide. The International Cat Day (August 8) is to commemorate a day where cats are respected, hugged and cuddled to show awareness to others in the world about the benefits of having an animal in your home.
