Today is Respect Your Cat Day. I could not find any history on how this holiday started, with the exception that on this day in 1384, King Richard the Second issued an edict forbidding the consumption of cats. I just couldn't imagine anyone having a cat for dinner--except as an honored, if not interesting guest.
I have enjoyed the company of cats since I was a little girl. Dogs are wonderful critters and I have made friends with quite a few. But there is something about the independent nature of cats, combined with an endearing love they have for those they choose as friends, which captures me every time.
Today, March 28th, for many years now, we celebrate Respect Your Cat Day. I'm glad there is such a holiday to pamper and cuddle up to these darling furry little friends.
The picture above is of our beloved Toez. She is a polydactyl cat. She's quite adept at using her mitten paws to get into just about everything. Here she is at the window, er, rather--interactive kitty TV.
Have a lovely day with your furry friends and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
