National Cat Day is an American public holiday celebrating cats and encouraging adoption rather than buying from pet stores supplied by kitten mills.

The holiday celebrates fabulous felines of all breeds, shapes and sizes.

National Cat Day is celebrated on October 29th each year.

The annual event was created to raise awareness about the millions of homeless cats and kittens waiting for homes.

National Cat Day is an official holiday of the Animal Miracle Foundation, founded by Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige to help galvanize the public to recognize 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.

Since its inception, nearly 1 million cats have been saved since National Cat Day began back in 2005. This year’s goal is to “facilitate the adoption of 10,000 shelter cats” on October 29, 2013.
