When is National Cat Day? Always October 29!
What is this holiday about?
The official website http://www.nationalcatday.com/about.htm says "One purpose of National Cat Day is to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year. Another is to urge you to celebrate the cat(s) in your life, to give them unconditional love for the companionship they bestow."
"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 and alert their owner of danger."

How is this holiday celebrated?
- This holiday is celebrated by spending quality time with you cat or by doing something good for a cat in need- Please help us help the cats-
- Celebrate the cats in your community by having a kitty party! Gather everyone together that has cats and have a cat party- Think of it the same way you would think about a Christmas Party- Serve food for the humans and food for the cats- Have a cat gift exchange and let the cats open the gifts and play with their new toys- Place a donation bowl on the table for all proceeds to go to a local animal shelter- It's a Great Idea!! And FUN too!
- Party Food: Any food that's in the shape of a cat is popular. For example: cakes, cupcakes, jello jelled in cat molds, cheeseballs, and even potato salad can be shaped to look like a cat. Any food that's in the shape of a cats favorite food is also popular. Such as fish shaped cracker or mice shaped candy.
Do cats have to be at the party?
No they don't. In fact most cat's don't do well visiting other homes like dogs do. Cats can get really scared if theres a lot of party noise. Many cat parties are enjoyed without the pets at all but the pets are never forgotten at a cat party. In fact many cat parties have cat toys for guests or even cat treats to take back home for the cats. It's not uncommon at all for party games to be played to win cat toys.
Mark Twain Said:
"Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat." - Mark Twain
