Sunday October 16, 2016 is Feral Cat Day.

“If the internet is any judge, everyone loves a cat, well… Unless it’s a stray cat, at which point the tropes involve more back-alley caterwauling and boots being thrown at yowling cats on fences. Feral Cat Day is here to remind us of our love of the furry-little devils, and how every stray cat has within them a loving cuddle-able fur ball looking for a forever home.

Cats have been domesticated nearly as long as dogs, and have been living alongside us for over 10,000 years. There isn’t a place in the world that one can’t find cats in homes, and colonies of cats living in every nook and cranny of human cities. It’s no surprise either, we generate a lot of waste, and by extension attract a lot of vermin, vermin which these natural predators love to chase, catch, and eat.

This day is best celebrated by alerting people the various issues facing stray cats. Most cities currently catch and impound cats in shelters, briefly attempting to get them adopted before ultimately euthanizing them. Instead you can educate others about organizations like Alley Cat Allies, and the Trap-Neuter-Return policy that saves the cats lives while preventing future generations.

An easily overlooked but incredibly effective method of celebrating is nothing more than getting your own cats neutered to ensure that unwanted kittens will not be born into the world. You too can take part in ensuring that society changes the way it thinks about stray cats, and help to create compassionate communities for house cats and stray cats alike.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/o2agh
