The Global Cat Day takes place every 16th of October to remind us that empowering, educating, and engaging people to protect and defend their cats is the absolutely the right thing to achieve. They say that dogs are the man’s best friend. Probably, but it’s seems that cats are tied in the first place for the unscientific and informal “Best Friend” category.

GLOBAL CAT DAY HISTORY
The Global Cat Day confirmed one thing — that we loved cats ever since the time begins. The Ancient Egyptians were those first ever civilization to harness a feline glory. Nearly around 4,000 years past, they domesticated the four-legged friends through keeping them close by the food stores. Cats will quickly earn the reputation as the great hunters, and then later on, the Egyptians worshipped these cats as their gods. Nothing much had changed since those old days.
A support group known as the Alley Cat Allies, together with the millions of supporters who will observe the Global Cat Day and with their commitment to save the cats from being slay.
“This Global Cats Day Pledge will include the fundamental code that every cat has the privilege to live and it guides all things that people can do to protect them,” says Allies the president and founder of Becky Robinson. “We stay for humanitarian, not deadly programs for the cats, and those that will join will take action in stopping cats from being slain.”
Robinson’s was asking everybody who valued cat’s lives to sign this Allies’ Global Cats Day Pledge online.
This organization that promotes humane care for every cat, reports that about millions of kittens and cats are in life-hostile dangerous. That is because felines are being over than any other animals in the shelters from across the state.
The Global Cat Day demanded that the community heads will abolish policies that will result in the murdering of cats; equip societies with lifesaving, humane policy like TNR or Trap-Neuter-Return; and change any policy that threatened the cats’ safety and health.
The TNR is a mainstream approach wherein the cats are humanely spayed or neutered, trapped, ear-tipped vaccinated, and goes back to outdoor homes where they’re living and thriving. As it sounds public policy, the TNR decreased the shelter intake, “euthanasia” that called to the animal services that rescued the taxpayer dollars.
