A happy cat is a happy home. September marks the annual celebration of Happy Cat Month, brought to you by the CATalyst Council and supported by compassionate partners. Here are some fun and creative ways to celebrate your cat and ensure their happiness:
Host a Cat-Themed Movie Night
Gather your friends and some cozy blankets, and watch classics like "The Aristocats" or "Puss in Boots".
Volunteer at a Local Animal Shelter
Use this month as an opportunity to make sure cats without forever homes still have plenty of love and happiness. Spend some time volunteering at an animal shelter, helping to care for and socialize with cats in need. Your love and attention can make a difference to those awaiting forever homes.
Pamper Your Cat with a Bath-Free Spa Day
Treat your feline friend to a spa day full of massages, scratches, and maybe even a new fancy collar or toy. Be sure to document their adorable reactions!
Create a Cat Art Gallery
Consider dedicating a corner of your home (or even an entire room) for photos and illustrations of your cat. They will appreciate this shrine and may question why this didn't happen sooner.
Learn About Cat History and Breeds
Use this month as an opportunity to expand your knowledge of cats. Read books, watch documentaries, or attend online seminars about different cat breeds, their history, and their unique characteristics.
Host a Catnip Party
Set up a catnip station with various catnip-filled toys, and let your cat go wild! Capture their adorable antics on video to share with friends and family.
Support Cat-Related Charities
Consider donating to or fundraising for cat-related charities and organizations that improve the lives of cats everywhere. Even small contributions can make a big difference.
