World Cat Day

Today is the 8th day of the 8th month which has got to be lucky (if you're into Chinese culture that is) but I learned from our American blog pals this week that August 8th is also World Cat Day.

In our house every day is Cat Day but we're game for making this one a super special one. To celebrate, we promise Au and Target that today we will:

Squizzle Target's chin until he falls over with purry happiness.
Build Au a tent from newspaper and play the Fishing game with him.
Roast chicken for their dinner.
Bring out the feather duster and play wild games until the floor is covered with feathers.
Open the front door and the sliding door at the same time so the cats can run circuits through the living room.

What are you doing for World Cat Day?

I didn't know either that today is World Cat day, anyway I am in the same case as you here too it's Cat day everyday !
I only hope that Rosie doesn't celebrate this with a mouse catch !

Wow I think this is going to be a wonderful treat for the kitties. Have a very happy World Cat Day. Lots of chin scritches for Au and Target. Hope all has been well. Have a good week :)

My hubby says that he thinks that our cats think everyday is Cat Day.
After reading Gattina's comment, I have to agree with her. I hope Peeve doesn't celebrate by catching anything small and feathery or furry.
Happy World Cat Day!

Every day is Cat Day here too! The cats loved your celebration ideas, though - we will try some of them.

And happy 8/8! (We know from our Chinese friends that 8 is very lucky.)

Happy World Cat Day, belated! I came by yesterday. I wanted to join but I couldn't get Twylah to sit still and take some shots of her. I tried to take her outdoors, but would just jump! Au and Target are so game, eat anything, but not ours. We tried to feed her some chicken and she threw up. I will see you around!

Happy Belated World Cat Day, Au and Target! Sorry I missed it. I tried to post a comment yesterday but the computer was acting up.

Those are really good ideas for World Cat Day, Ellen! For World Cat Day next year, I will make my kitties a big playhouse or peekaboo tunnel out of appliance boxes. Heck... no reason why I can't make one today!

Happy 'Belated' World Cat's Day! As most of us agree, its Cat's day everyday, and they do have a way to make sure it happens! Lol!
