Cats are CommunityTM

On Global Cat Day®, October 16, join us to protect cats as members of our communities in every country worldwide.

The Global Cat Day theme, Cats Are CommunityTM, is a rallying call of this global truth: Cats have lived alongside people for thousands of years, have a place in our communities, and are beings of inherent value who deserve to be protected.

Cats are our family, our friends, and our neighbors who live indoors with us and outdoors among us. Our unique relationships with them span thousands of years and cross every border. Love for cats is a universal language in itself.

But even with so much history together, cats still face cruel threats to their lives every day.

Global Cat Day is a day for all to become cat advocates, be the voice cats cannot be for themselves, and defend cats as we would any member of our community.
