Let’s Celebrate World Cat Day – Aug. 8th
Happy World Cat Day!
World Cat-Day, also known as International Cat-Day, was first celebrated in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and other animal rights groups.
Despite being solitary, cats are a social and use a variety of vocalizations, pheromones and body language for communication. These include meowing, purring, trilling, hissing, growling, and grunting. Interactions with cats may improve health and reduce physical responses to stress: for example the presence of cats may moderate increased blood pressure. Cat ownership may also improve psychological health by providing emotional support and dispelling feelings of depression, anxiety and loneliness. Their ability to provide companionship and friendship are common reasons given for owning a cat.
Gives some love to a Kitty today!
