Yes, this week, on August eighth, Cats were celebrated across the world. According to statistics, cats are the most popular pet on earth--there are an estimated 500 million felines frolicking in homes everywhere. So it isn't surprising that there are several holidays celebrating our feisty, furry little friends.
International Cat Day was celebrated for the fist time in 2002 by IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, among other animal rights groups.
A human loved by a cat has been shown to improve mental health and to relieve stress, anxiety and depression. I can attest to that personally. Toez the Polydactyl Cat has often been a lifesaver--laughter on a dark day.
I hope you took time, if you are, er, owned by a cat, to roll out the red carpet! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
