INTERNATIONAL CAT DAY
International Cat Day takes place on the 8th of August, and was first established in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Custodianship of this day was then passed on to International Cat Care, a charity based in the UK dedicated to pioneering improvements in cat care since 1958. One of the things iCatCare encourages for it is for cat owners to take five minutes a day to play with their cats. This is to improve their physical health and mental wellbeing - plus, us humans get the feel-good factor of nurturing this important bond with our pets.
