World Cat Day

World Cat Day

Today many of our friends from Cat Blogosphere and elsewhere are celebrating World Cat Day. It was founded in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and other animal rights groups. Of course, it is a bit redundant here at CatSynth where every day is a cat day, but it is good to set aside a date in the greater society to recognize the contributions of cats.

While we haven’t done much per se to mark today other than lifting the graphic displayed above from Ann of Zoolatry, several of our fellow bloggers have fun posts for today.

The Island Cats have some cat proverbs.
Animal Shelter Volunteer has a collage of colorful and adoptable cats.
Georgia, Tillie and the rest of the cats from Halifax have a special card. They also agree with us that “cat day” is a bit redundant.
The Opinionated Pussycat has some basic facts about the date.
Purrchance to Dream has a world graphic with the whole gang (it seems like they’re always growing in number).

We can’t post everyone here, but you can hop over to the Cat Blogosphere for more festive links.
