[Let’s Celebrate] National Cat Day

Standard

Not like we need a reason to celebrate on the daily – personally, the only reason I need to celebrate is because I want to – but when I was in college, my friends and I stumbled across a calendar that assigned holidays to each and every calendar day.  For example, it just so happens that National Cotton Candy Day falls smack dab on my birthday (serendipity, right?), International Sushi Day is on June 18th and April 16th is National Eggs Benedict Day.  As you could surmise, the other 365.25 days are equally zany and fun – but since when was I too old for zany and fun?! Now, there’s one holiday that I’m just head over heals in love with and it’s because of the two little furballs that invade my life on the daily – Sake and Stella.  Ladies and gentlemen, cats and kittens – Happy National Cat Day!

Beyond being adorable, fun and entertaining for hours on end – there are a lot of health benefits associated with owning a cat.  Those little lap lovers  purr at a frequency between 20 and 140 Hz which qualifies them as medically therapeutic!  Do you find yourself overly anxious at times? I know I do! So I was excited to learn that petting a cat can lower the amount of stress hormones coursing through that little body of yours. Plus, your blood pressure and risk of heart attacks decrease !  If you don’t have a cat of your own to hug, squeeze and pamper today then head down to your local pet shelter and put in an hour or two with the sweethearts without homes – I guarantee they’ll appreciate it, even more than their little mews let on.

So from my little cat family to yours – Happy National Cat Day; I hope you spend it with the furballs you love – I know I am!

♥ I'm a spunky girl with a big heart and an open mind. I can't ride a bike and dislike capital letters. I'm slightly obsessed with my kitties - Daisy, Stella, Loki and Marley - but I bet if they were yours you would be, too. I laugh all the time - loudly and mostly at myself. my favorite things include, but aren't limited to: fabulous people, my fantastic husband-to-be, traveling, live music, social media, a good read, working out, furry friends, the Golden State Warriors, photography, and sushi. Everyone, including you, looks like an animal - and I won't hesitate to tell you which one. I was born and raised in the 650, spent some of the best years of my life at UCSB as a gaucho and am now a proud angelino; its taken some time, but I effing love└A.
