OCTOBER 29 – NATIONAL CAT DAY

” WHAT GREATER GIFT THAN THE LOVE OF A CAT?”  – CHARLES DICKENS

National Cat Day was first created by Collen Paige, a strong animal welfare advocate, to bring attention to the plight of domestic cats. Often cats overlooked and under-appreciated because they don’t have usually the jobs like dogs. But don’t you know that cats bring unconditional love and companionship as well? They are a bundle of joys that bring tons of laughter and happiness to millions of people around the word and often alert their owner to danger.

National Cat Day adopted by the ASPCA ( American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), a nonprofit organization which also works to encourage pet adoption. ASPCA work hard to bring awareness to the numbers of animals that been rescued each year and encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they give upon us. National Cat Day is celebrated every 29th of October in the United States.

As a cat lover / animal lover, My partner and I usually help feed stray kittens and set aside certain amount to ASPCA and local organizations as donations in helping thousand of animals that come through the shelter every years.

To celebrate the National Cat Dat I am sharing with you some famous cat quotes, sayings and photos of my rescued fur babies.

Time spent with a cat is never wasted” – Colette

If you have a kitten (s) , take time out to spoil them. If you don’t I am encouraging you to consider adopting a shelter cat.

I want to travel the world and I want to feel the anonymity of being in a foreign city and being surrounded by hundreds of people who are going in a hundred different directions.
