October - Lots of Cat Celebrations & Halloween
National Animal Safety and Protection Month AND International Black Cat Awareness Month
Many organizations are working toward animal safety, protection, and wellness. This is their month to shine. Help them do their jobs by making a donation, or two, to your favorite cat charities or rescues.
Take October 9th – it’s National Pet Obesity Awareness Day. I don’t think they even have a National Human Obesity Awareness Day so our cats are really special. So, stop saying that Fluffy is just big-boned. According to statistics, it is estimated that 58% of cats in the U.S. are overweight.
Some of us have them in our backyards. Some of us feed them. Some of us DON’T get them fixed. October 16th is Global Cat Day previously Feral Cat Day. With help from local cat rescues and Alley Cat Allies, you can educate your community about feral cats and trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR). Alley Cat Allies website is full of so many useful tools. Check out what tools might work for your community at https://www.checkiday.com/adef036694d6b05a30931eb8467daf02/global-cat-day
What???? I can’t believe everyday isn’t National Cat Day but evidently this year only October 29th has been set aside. Cats of course believe every day is National Cat Day. That is why we love them so much – for their opinions! Visit https://nationaltoday.com/national-cat-day/
