Today, Aug. 8, is World Cat Day! Also known as International Cat Day, this feline holiday was founded in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and other animal rights groups, World Cat Day celebrates these adorable, loving cats that provide us with companionship and the way they enlighten our lives. Several studies have suggested that having cats in your home may improve mental health, reduce stress, provide emotional support, and alleviate feelings of depression, anxiety and loneliness. So on this day, give your cat a hug with an extra squeeze!
