International Cat Day (August 8) draws attention to our feline friends

Cat lovers around the world can join together to celebrate International Cat Day, an entire 24 hours dedicated to our feline friends. 

The goal of the event is a fun way for people to celebrate their feline friends, while also drawing attention to cat welfare. 

Celebrated each year on August 8, the day was first created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. In much of Europe, it is celebrated on February 17 and March 1 in Russia. 

 It is a wonderful day to remember no matter what’s going on around you, not matter how bad or troubling things get, you can count on your furry friends to be there.
