Significance of World Cat Day:
Cats and dogs are the most common pets around the world. One can also look at this day as an opportunity to acknowledge the joy and companionship a cat brings to the lives of its owners. However, we should also give the same love and attention to stray cats. Most of these cats are unlucky and live a cruel lifestyle. One of the main objectives of this day is not only to pamper your cat at home but also to take care of stray cats as they too deserve love.
Here are some ways you can celebrate World Cat Day:

volunteer: If for some reason you are unable to adopt a cat, there is always the option of helping a pet shelter. You will have the opportunity to bond with pets and even spend your time in a more prosperous way.
