Today is International Cat Day!
Tuesday 8th August marks a day of celebration all over the world to appreciate our feline friends, raise awareness and encourage responsible pet ownership. The day was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Since 2020 International Cat Care (iCatCare), has been the custodian of International Cat Day.
“As custodians of this important day, we’re encouraging cat owners to take five minutes a day to play with their cats to improve their physical health and mental wellbeing.
Just like dogs need walking every day, cats need daily play to keep them active and happy. Wand toy play provides cats with a safe outlet to perform natural behaviours and has many benefits.” – iCatCare
