Help Me Celebrate National Black Cat Day, by Guiness the Cat

Help Me Celebrate National Black Cat Day, by Guiness the Cat

Hello, I am Guiness the Cat, and today is a very, very special day. It's National Black Cat Day!

Okay, okay. It's National Black Cat Day in the UK, but in the spirit of international cooperation and friendship, I'm perfectly happy to observe such an awesome holiday from another country. After all, I do have catblogging friends in the UK, and a party is a party.

And there's no reason in the world why any of my international kitty friends and their humans shouldn't celebrate the US's Black Cat Appreciation Day on October 17, either. It doesn't matter that it has already passed. I live with Debbi after all. I'm used to doing things late.

National Black Cat Day

National Black Cat Day is the annual campaign of the organization Cats Protection to celebrate black and black-and-white cats. Cats Protection is the leading feline welfare charity in the UK. They help thousands of kitties every year.

According to the Cats Protection blog, black and black-and-white cats make up about half of the cats in their care, and they wait much longer than other cats to find a forever home.

National Black Cat Day


I personally don't think that's fair. Black cats are absolutely wonderful bosses to be employed by. Just ask Debbi.

You can find the Cats Protection website here. And be sure to check out the history of National Black Cat Day here.

If you like to look at pictures of adorable black kitties (like me!), you can find lots of them on Cats Protection Facebook and Twitter pages.

So help me celebrate National Black Cat Day. It's a great day to pet a black cat. If you don't have one, please think about adopting one. There are lots of special kitties who are looking for a special human to love.

Sincerely, Guiness the Cat

Happy National Cat Day From Guiness the Cat!

The Guiness Blog by Guiness the Cat

Hello, this is me, Guiness the Cat, wishing everyone a very happy National Cat Day.

Like we really need an excuse to celebrate cats. Seriously? Cats are awesome every day of the year. Just ask us!

Guiness the Cat

National Cat Day on October 29 is not to be confused with International Cat Day on August 8, National Feral Cat Day on October 16, Black Cat Appreciation Day on October 17, National Black Cat Day on October 30 (I really like those two!), and the entire months of February, which is Cat Appreciation Month, and October, which is Black Cat Awareness Month. (I really like that one, too!)

Seriously, you didn't think you could get all your celebrating of cats done in just one day, did you?

Happy National Cat Day From Guiness the Cat
After all, look at all that just me and my friends at the Professional Cat Bloggers Association do for you:

We educate. We amuse. We enlighten. We entertain.

We inspire. We supervise. We nag. We empathize.

Okay, so we nag more that we empathize. You can't say humans don't need it.



Guiness the Cat

We lower your blood pressure. We get you out of bed in the morning. We comment on how you're not doing things according to our standards. We keep your lap warm. We are your go-to source for all your cat hair needs. We make life worthwhile.



And then we write about how we make your life worthwhile. Well, sometimes we write about all the goofy things you do, but mostly we like to write about ourselves. We are cats, after all.

Guiness the Cat

So go pet a kitty, grab something to eat, and then take a nap. Seriously, how did you expect to celebrate National Cat Day?
