National Cat Day 2020 – Thursday, October 29! On each year’s 29th October National Cat Day is celebrated. It’s the PURRfect day to bestow all your precious attention to your furry little four-legged friends. Cats are amazing pets undoubtedly. They most of the time act like they don’t care for you, but when they do you would surely feel it in their approach to you.
You might think at times they are too much engaged in their world when they are seen to be engaged in chasing red dot lights, balls, chasing mice or staring out into the void like experienced philosophers, be that as it may, these are some of the essences you deal with but the truth is they can melt your heart any moment they want with their cute antics. Days like this provide us with the much-needed picture regarding why pet lovers should be adopting them at local shelters as there are too many of them being neglected around the world.
History of the National Cat Day:
The day was invented by an expert in family lifestyle and pet & animal welfare advocate known as Colleen Paige. Her purpose was to help galvanize people to think about the number of cats that need to be rescued every year and also as a way to cheer upon the cat lovers to celebrate the presence and unconditional love these furry friends bestow upon us.
Cats are really close to human beings whether they are pets or feral animals. They have been a joy to millions of people worldwide. Cat Day was later adopted by the American society which works towards preventing cruelty towards humans.
