National Cat Day was founded six years ago by Colleen Paige, a pet and lifestyle expert and animal welfare advocate. She wanted a day to draw attention to the number of homeless cats in shelters and rescues still waiting for their forever homes, and give cat lovers (like us!) another special reason to celebrate our own cats and the unconditional love and companionship they give us every single day.
Her goal — and it's a big and GREAT one! — is to get 10,000 cats adopted on National Cat Day each year. How wonderful would that be?That would be wonderful. But being as it is a Monday and a great deal of the country is dealing with hurricane Sandy, I'm sure a lot of kitties that would have been adopted today won't be.
But there are still many wonderful adorable friendly, aloof spirited, calm, floofy, hairless kitties at shelters across the world waiting for homes.. If you have room for one more, a kitty and a shelter who is housing it would be very greatful..
