Cats are among the most popular pets. They necessitate the owners’ care and attention throughout the year, but they have a particular day set out for them. The purpose of International Cat Day, which is celebrated on August 8, is to remind people of how the adorable animal helps to enhance the environment. Having cats as pets enhances human health in a variety of ways, including improved cognitive performance. After a hard day, returning to your cat and seeing its cute antics may help you relax.
International Cat Day was founded by the International Fund for Animal Welfare to honor cats and protect them from harm. Since 2020, International Cat Care, a British non-profit organization that has been working for cat welfare since 1958, has been in charge of International Cat Day.
Interesting Facts about Cats:
(1): Cats may bristle because of small erector muscles related to their hair follicles. Cats may intimidate foes by arching their backs and hissing as a result of this.
(2): Cats, unlike dogs and horses, walk or run by moving the front and back legs on one side first, followed by the front and back legs on the other. Only camels and giraffes move in this way.
(3): The cat’s body is extremely flexible. This is feasible because its vertebrae are kept together by muscles rather than ligaments, like in humans. As a result, the cat’s back might stretch or shrink, curve upward, or oscillate along the vertebral line.
(4): Cats are mostly nocturnal animals. The retina of the cat’s eye is very sensitive to light due to a coating of guanine, causing the eye to shine at night under strong light.
