18 weird, wacky and wonderful cats to make sure you're ‘feline fine’ on National Cat Day
October 29 is National Cat Day. It’s a holiday with a heart, since it’s meant to raise awareness and to encourage the adoption of homeless cats. It also gives cat lovers a great reason to celebrate their own cats and do something extra special for them. And, hey, if you don’t have a cat, now might be the perfect time to go out and adopt one.
To honor National Cat Day — more specifically, to honor cats and all their weird, wacky and wonderful ways — we’re giving you six reasons to celebrate the felines in your life today and every day.
1. Hiding and spying cats
Cats are masters of stealth, but they’re also pretty shameless about spying on us humans. These cats, Ruby, Brownie and Maurice have found the perfect cover from which to observe us, although Maurice might have to turn around — somehow.
2. Funny-faced cats
3. Raspberry cats
Since National Cat Day happens to fall on a Tuesday this year, why not also celebrate tongue-out Tuesday? We have a few cats who were more than happy to give us a raspberry, including Nicky, Abraham and Kayla.
4. Leaping cats
5. Yoga-pose cats
Forget about downward dog or upward dog. Miranda, Thunderstruck and Solarflare have some pretty sweet yoga poses of their own, because sometimes even the most flexible feline needs a little adjustment.
6. Cats who just like to hang out
