National Cat Day was founded by Pet Lifestyle Expert and animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige. It is a celebration that takes place on October 29th, every year in the United States. The National Cat Day website states that the holiday was first celebrated in 2005 “to help galvanise the public to recognise the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.” The day is supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit organisation which also works to encourage pet adoption.
