How to Celebrate National Cat Day

National Cat Day is October 29 and was created to bring awareness to adoption and the fact that so many cats need homes. If you already have your furry friend, are thinking about adopting or just want to volunteer, we have some ideas on how you can celebrate this purr-fect day!

  • Adopt a cat from your local shelter or cat rescue.
  • Make a commitment to your cat’s health and buy all natural treats and food.
  • Donate blankets, food and toys to animal welfare organizations.
  • Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to play with some cats available for adoption, clean cages and litter boxes or anything else they need help with.
  • Have a safety check of your home to make sure it's safe for your new cat.
  • Spend the day taking photos of your cat and posting them on social media.
  • Commission a custom portrait painted of your cat.
  • Buy your cat a fun new toy....condo, bed or treats!
  • Make a window perch for your cat to lay in the sun.
  • Brush your cat to eliminate excess fur and hairballs.
  • Buy your cat a collar and tag with your name and number, just in case they get outside and happen to become lost.
