National Cat Day was founded in 2005 by Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert & Animal Welfare Advocate Colleen Paige to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their lives for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.
We explode the internet every October 29th. We live to celebrate cats and help them to find forever homes. Through our large social media & press platform, all year long we're able to partake in the wonderful world of cats and put the plight of cats in shelters, center stage. We educate literally millions all year long but on October's party time! We encourage you to spoil your fur baby a little more on National Cat Day than any other day (you don't want them to get too demanding do you?) by buying them a new toy drenched in cat nip, giving them something simply scrumptious to eat, offering LOTS more cuddling and making a donation to your local shelter in their honor. The best way you can celebrate though is to save a life! So if you can....ADOPT....don't shop. Estimates reveal that there are approximately 4 million cats entering shelters every year with 1-2 million being euthanized. Often cats are overlooked and under-appreciated because they don't usually have jobs like dogs. But cats still lower blood pressure, offer unconditional love and companionship, tons of laughs and alert their owner to danger. Many cats have been named heroes. So take that...dogs!

1. Adopt a cat from your local shelter or cat rescue.

 2. Make a commitment to your cat’s health and buy all natural products from food to litter.
 3. Donate blankets, food and toys to animal welfare organizations.

 4. Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to play with some cats available for adoption, clean cages and litter boxes or anything else they need help with.

 5. Write your Congressman and ask that he/she support the ban of kitten mills and gas chambers in your state.

 6. Bake some cat shaped cookies for your kids, friends or office and bake some tuna cookies for your cat.

 7. Have a safety check of your home to make sure it's safe for your new cat.

 8. Spend the day taking photos of your cat and posting them on our Facebook page.

 9. Buy an official National Cat Day Tee and sport it proudly!

 10. Assist an ill or elderly neighbor by cleaning their cat’s litter box and playing with their cat.

 11. Commission a custom portrait painted of your cat.

 12. Buy your cat a fun new toy....condo, bed or treats!

Buy specialty food (grain-fee and such) only when absolutely necessary i.e recommended by a veterinarian.

Follow pet food brands on social media  for special discount codes and offers

Measure food and track servings (feed only the allotted serving per meal for the size of your pet)

Name brand is not always best but always check ingredients as well for the best nutrition.

Join a reward program (Petpal/Petperks etc.)

Try before buying. Try a sample size to make sure your pet will actually eat the food.

Try a pet food subscription service through places like Amazon or Petsmart to get possible discounts and free shipping.
