Theme this day and importance. Ways we can adopt, protect, and cherish our feline friends, and Important facts to know about them.


Cats: Fluffy, mature, savage, intellectually and emotionally sharp, and blessed divine gifts. Besides my intense love for them let’s dive into some scientific knowledge about cats. The cat is a domestic, small carnivorous mammal. It’s Binomial Name is Felis Catus. Often, they are called Domestic Cats to distinguish them from the Wild Cats. Usual types of cats: Farm cat, a house cat or a feral cat. Around 7500BC, Cats are known to be first domesticated in the Near East especially in the Ancient Egypt.

Cats have inborn hunting and territorial characteristics. it’s very, very important for them to survive. Being wary of humans and other animals helps them not to fall in the traps of horrific poachers and deadly animals. There are terrible people who lure cats in just to torture, sell your pets by kidnapping them, and all of this just for alleged “Fun” or “Money”. Abuse surrounding feline creatures have been growing. You can not only protect your cat partners but also donate, foster, food drive, neuter drive, and protect animals around you as well. Remember that your one act of kindness gives a safe home for cats. It isn’t necessary to care for them by bringing them home.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For their safety and wellness, make sure your cat wears a safety collar and an ID tag.

Cats are naturally curious and love to explore. Due to vehicles (Crossing road or sleeping under cars for shade), poachers, coyotes, owls, and what not. Obviously, we don’t want to rob outside life from cats just to keep them completely safe since indoor things or genetic diseases can hurt them as well.

It is always better to train them about goods and bad, cat-friendly leashes for walking if they like it, and taking precautions. You can take following steps to care for them:

  • Build an outdoor Catio.
  • Do not put bells on their collars
  • Have a back-up caretaker, like a neighbor(Not completely), siblings, or a trusted friend.
  • VACCINATIONS! VACCINATIONS like rabies, feline leukemia and feline distemper vaccine.
  • Always leave a bowl of extra food and water before you go out.
  • Tend to injuries immediately.
  • GET AN ID TAG! An ID tag has the cat’s name and your phone number.

  • Neutering cats might feel a little extreme, but it is for their own safety.
