Wow Meow! It’s National Cat Day!

Today is the day we celebrate those mysterious, funny, lovable creatures called cats who come into our lives and bring so much joy but also sadness when they go. National Cat Day was created to help the public recognize the need to rescue cats. It also encourages cat lovers to recognize the companionship and unconditional love that pet cats give us. This isn’t the only cat-related “holiday” celebrated in October which is known as Black Cat Appreciation Month. I wrote about other special October cat days on another blog. You can read my post On Pens, Paws, and Claws here and my cat Harry’s post about Black Cat Day here.

Cat lovers are encouraged today to share photos and stories of their cats on social media with #NationalCatDay.

Here are a few photos of my special cats, Harry, Hermione, and Stripey:
