Cat owners: Are you and your pet prepared for that all-important late-October holiday? You know: National Cat Day. (What did you think I meant?) Since 2005, October 29 has been set aside to honor our feline fur babies in whatever way we find appropriate, including, of course, posting a picture of them on your Insta with one of the many funny and clever National Cat Day Instagram captions out there.
Not that you need an excuse to show off your cat at its winsome best (or its mischievous worst), but October 29 is one of those times when it's almost mandatory. As the official National Cat Day website explains, "We believe that life just isn't the same without a cat in it." The group of cat lovers educates the public about the plight of unwanted cats (some 4 million enter shelters every year), and encourages potential owners to adopt and to have their pet spayed or neutered to reduce overpopulation.
The dignity and occasional goofiness of cats just calls for a witty or slightly sarcastic quote to go along with your social media post. These are some of my favorites, so keep these in mind when you're displaying that shot of your fur baby sleeping, lying on top of your laptop, eyeing a bird out the window, or dashing after your laser pointer light.
