National Cat Day

Mrs. Kitty & Ittie Bitty her son
2 of our furry family members: Mother & Son
Celebrated: October 29th.

National Cat Day is a party affair at our house. I surprise my cat crew with one new cat toy every National Cat Day. Plus I drag out all the old cat toys and let our furry pets have a field day of play. I get in the floor with them and shake, rattle and roll roll roll. wink~

For a bit of "high on life time," 
I sprinkle cat nip on the floor so they can happily roll around in cat bliss. It's such a site to see when every one's crawling around on their bellies and rolling side to side. LOL! It's as much fun for me as it is for them. :)

Cat treats are on the menu for such a special day too. After all it's a celebration day so I treat my babes all throughout the day. A little bite here a little bite there. I usually buy a couple different ones and sometimes I even try my hand at making homemade. (this is just for treats and not a meal) I'll list a couple of recipes I found on the Internet at the bottom ok. This way you can make some too.

Last but not least, I cook them up a sinful supper of boiled chicken and let them drink the chicken juice too. They love it! I put the vitamin drops in and stir it up. I line up a row of dinner bowls and ladle each cat a bowl of their own and serve them all at the same time. 

What is Cat Day about?
Pet lifestyle expert and animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige established National Cat Day in 2005. The day serves as a reminder to the public about the number of cats that need to be rescued. This holiday encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.

My daughter is all about her cats. I'll have to tell her it's National Cat Day. Although, she spoils them like every day is National Cat Day!
