Cats are one of the most wonderful creatures on the planet; they are curious, have wonderful features, and are one of the most common and favorite pets of humans and therefore deserve a day to celebrate them. The world celebrates International Cat Day annually on August 8, follow this article to learn more about the history and rituals of this special day!

History of International Cat Day

Cats descended from the African wild cat and were domesticated by humans as pets since ancient times. The first historical human record of cats was found in the culture of the ancient Egyptian civilization, where the Egyptians considered them deities and protectors, and after the collapse of the Egyptian family, cats became common everywhere! The Greeks and Romans used them to control pests, and in the East, cats were originally owned by the wealthy.

During the Middle Ages, cats were associated in Europe with superstition and suspected of carrying disease during the Black Death, so many cats were killed in that era, but in the seventeenth century, cats regained their reputation as a companion to humans.

In our time, it was decided 20 years ago by the International Fund for Animal Welfare that the half-billion cats living among humans should have their own day.

How to Celebrate International Cat Day?

On this day, cat owners are keen to pamper them and meet their needs, so if you own a cat, do not hesitate to buy her favorite sweets and share some pictures on social media, not only for fun but even to spread awareness that these spirits have every right to live a decent life, especially since there are a significant number of cats around the world who are intentionally or unintentionally exposed to injuries and accidents.
