International Cat Day – 8th August
International Cat Day takes place on 8th August every year. As custodians of this important day, International Cat Care are excited to announce that this year’s campaign is themed ‘Purrfect Play Every Day’.
We will be following the campaign across the week.
More about International Cat Care
International Cat Care believe in a world in which each cat’s life experience will be as good as it can be. They do this by providing cat owners, veterinary professionals and those that live and work with cats with the resources, support and advice they need to care better for their cats.
They offer an A to Z Guide to your cats health for reference and do a lot of work with unowned cats.
They run regular campaigns which we like to follow and support as we can.
Cat Friendly Clinic
As an International Cat Care Cat Friendly Clinic we like to follow and support their regular campaigns.
This year’s International Cat Day offers the opportunity to learn more about how play can benefit your cat’s physical and mental wellbeing.
It features information on why playing with your cat is important and about why cats play : increased mental stimulation, reducing hunting behaviour, encourages exercise, reduces problem behaviours – and of course strengthens the human animal bond.

To help support the campaign, International Cat Care will be looking for cat owners to complete a short survey about cat play. Participants will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a custom pet portrait by celebrated animal illustrator Lili Chin! We’ll share the link as soon as ICC launch the survey
