In 2002, the International Fund for Animal Welfare declared August 8 to be International Cat Day. I happen to be a cat person rather than a dog person, so I would give my cat extra affection and treats today, except for the fact that we are inconveniently located in different countries at the moment. However, if you have a cat nearby, give your cat lots of scratches and play time today, and if you don’t have a cat, you should! Cats are awesome. Your local SPCA would be very happy to show you some kitties in need of a home.
