International Cat Day is a celebration that takes place on August 8th, every year. It was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Since 2020, feline charity, International Cat Care (iCatCare), has been the custodian of International Cat Day.

For 2021, iCatCare is providing free guidance from feline experts to help owners strengthen the bond with their cat with the theme of ‘#BeCatCurious: Training for Cats and their Humans.’

Owners can sign up to receive emails with tips and advice on how to positively train their cat to go into a cat carrier at home and for trips to places like the vet. They’ll also get invitations to free online events, Q&As, and easy to follow short training videos with cat behaviour experts.

International Cat Day is also referred to as World Cat Day in some countries and since its inception, it has been growing worldwide.
