National Cat Day History
National Cat Day seeks to raise awareness of the thousands of cats that need to be rescued and encourages appreciation of pet cats. Domestic cats are owned by many families in the US, however many other cats are homeless and or have been abandoned. Every year, these cats are taken into shelters, where millions of them are euthanized. In the US, approximately 3.4 million cats enter animal rescue shelters each year, of these, 1.4 million are euthanized.
In 2005, National Cat Day was created by Colleen Paige, a pet lover and advocate. National Cat Day also advocates spaying and neutering cats in order to control their ever-growing population worldwide.
