Guess what October 29th is, hooman?
It’s National Cat Day! National Cat Day was created in 2005 as a day to celebrate your furry feline friends, as well as promote cat adoption for those that need homes. So, how do you celebrate? Here are 3 tips to make this year’s National Cat Day absolutely purrrfect:
1. Consider Adopting a Cat
The sad reality is that millions of cats enter shelters every single year without homes. If you’ve been looking for a furry friend recently, National Cat Day is the perfect day to adopt a cat. Find a local animal shelter near you and contact them before visiting to inquire about the adoption process.
2. Donate to a Local Animal Shelter
If you’re not quite ready for adoption or don’t have the time to take care of a pet right now, then donating to your local animal shelter is another great way to celebrate National Cat Day. Local animal shelters often are short-staffed and short-supplied, so every penny makes a huge difference in caring for feline friends without homes. Most shelters have a place online where you can make donations, but once you select a shelter that you want to contribute to, make sure to check out the best way to donate.
At My Pet Selfies, we believe so strongly in supporting animal shelters that a portion of every single purchase is used to help an animal in need. You can learn more about our cause and difference here.
3. Treat Your Cat to a New Toy or Special Treat
Last but certainly not least, if you have a cat at home, National Cat Day is the purrrfect day to give them a little extra treat. Maybe it looks like bringing them home a squeaky, new toy? Or maybe it looks like treating them to one of these homemade DIY treat recipes? Whatever it is, give your kitty some extra TLC!
