More About Cats
Cats descend from an African feline species from ancient times. The famous cat mummies of ancient Egypt make it evident that people had domesticated cats thousands of years ago, and from there we have our various cat breeds. As an animal original to the desert, cats are adept at surviving on little water and scarce food, namely other animals. This carnivore has been the perfect pest control resource for ancient Egyptians, the ancient Greeks and Romans, medieval Europeans, and the passengers of the Mayflower itself. Ancient Egypt worshiped cats, but today, they are primarily our companions.
How to Celebrate International Cat Day
Pamper Your Pet
International Cat Day is a great reason to pamper your cat. Favor it with its favorite treats, toys, and presents it would like! You can also let it engage in its favorite activities and take it to its favorite places. You could also give your cat a new experience, such as catnip or a swimming lesson.
If you are ready to own a cat or are interested in owning one, this day is a great opportunity to learn more and pursue cat adoption. Many cats still need a good home, and any day celebrating felines is a great day to visit your local pet store or cat shelter.
