It’s International Cat Day on Wednesday, 8th August. This date was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, and at Round & About magazine, we’re all about celebrating our affectionate friends.
Research shows that watching funny cat videos online can boost a person’s energy and create positive emotions, and, according to experts owning a cat can also be good for your heart. Petting a cat is said to reduce stress levels too.
So, cats have more than earned their extra treats and cuddles this International Cat Day. Go on, show your appreciation to that moggy in your life, or buy that extra pack of cat food at the shops to donate to your local rescue centre as a little thanks to our four legged pals!
In our October edition, it is all about the other animals in our lives. So if you have a pet business and wish to advertise click here.
