All hail our Felis catus overlords, World Cat Day is upon us at last. I’m not sure we can worship them any more than we already do (thank the Egyptians for setting such a high bar) but it’s worth a shot: our furry-fisted rulers demand nothing less than total adoration on this special day. It’s a wonder they allow us to get away with only dedicating one day a year to them. So here are 14 Instagram captions for World Cat Day, or any other day, to pay tribute to our most benevolent cat royalty.
First, a little background on the feline-friendly holiday: according to National Today, World Cat Day occurs on August 8th every year. It was started back in 2002 by The International Fund for Animal Welfare, a charity organization whose stated goal is to help domesticated and wild animals alike. Also, mark your calendars for August 17th, as this is National Black Cat Appreciation Day, according to National Today. Black cats may be given a bad reputation for being bad omens, unlucky, or even in league with the devil, but owners of these beautiful cats know otherwise (except for being friends with Satan, sometimes our kitties do seem a little devilish). So here are some fun ways to pay homage to your cats on Instagram (just be forewarned: your cat may become an influencer and become even more high maintenance).
