Curious about Cat Holidays? Here's a Complete List from a Ref. Librarian

A flickr friend Susan (Tiger's Lair) is a librarian at Ormond Beach (FL)Library; she's a cat lover and has several great cat groups on Flickr. Here's her comprehensive report on cat holidays through the year, starting of course with January 2-

Happy Mew Year for Cats Day. A few other cat holiday highlights are:

February is Pet Dental Health Month

April is National Pet First Aid Awareness Month and
Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month

and as I believe was pointed out on these pages last spring...

April 28 is
Hairball Awareness Day
.

Check out the link above for the whole cat-calendar year...

Source: Primarily "Chase's Calendar of Events" and a few miscellaneous other sources. Susan adds, "Please note that some might vary slightly from year to year--I was looking at a 2006 edition of Chase's. Monday, October 16 is National Feral Cat Day, the next cat holiday to observe!"

Jeeze...every day is a holiday for my cats. A little nosh. A little head scratch. A three-hour nap. Twenty minutes racing up and down the stairs. Knocking over the (full) watering can. Waking me up at 3:30 a.m. just so I can walk down the stairs and watch them eat. Fiesta time all the time, I tell ya.
