Respect Your Cat Day

There’s a major kitty holiday around the corner. Respect Your Cat Day is March 28th! Our feline overlords may be small, but these little furballs certainly do have a way of commanding respect. An Eau Claire, WI vet lists some reasons to respect Fluffy in this article.

Kitties Are Clean

One great thing about cats is the fact that they are so clean. Fluffy won’t need to be bathed or walked, and she’ll take time every day to keep her coat looking soft and shiny. She’s also polite enough to share some of that pretty fur with you, by leaving it all over, well, everything.

Health Benefits

It seems our feline pals may be a little bit magical. When you hug a purring kitty, you’re getting some very special benefits from it. The frequencies cats purr at—25 to 150 Hertz—have some unique healing properties. These frequencies improve bone density and promote healing.

Mousing Skills

Kitties are remarkable little mousers. Fluffy is renowned for bringing her humans dead presents. In fact, the most efficient mouser of all racked up almost 29,000 mouse kills. That’s definitely worthy of respect! (No wonder your furball looks so proud of her ‘gifts!’)

Napping Talent

Another one of Fluffy’s remarkable talents is the ability to sleep for rather ridiculous amounts of time. Some kitties spend up to 20 hours a day snoozing. Impressive!


Have you ever thought that your feline friend was in one area, only to find her somewhere else? Fluffy may very well have figured out how to use wormholes. Then again, kitties may have their own set of rules for physics. Suffice it to say, we have our suspicions.

Kitty Divinization Tactics

As you may have heard, Fluffy convinced the ancient Egyptians to revere her. In fact, she was so successful that it became a custom for people to shave their eyebrows in mourning when their cats died! Our feline buddies were also spoiled in ancient Siam, China, and Rome.

Internet Takeover

Have you ever noticed that kitties have a very strong presence online? It seems we just never get tired of looking at cute and funny cat pictures and videos. Fluffy somehow managed to take over a huge chunk of the internet. That’s pretty impressive.
