Today is National Cat Day! National Cat Day was founded by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige. It is a celebration that takes place on October 29, every year in the United States. The National Cat Day website states that the holiday was first celebrated in 2005, “to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.” The day is supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit organization which also works to encourage pet adoption.
To celebrate, Uber has teamed up with Cheezburger and the ASPCA to bring you Uber Kittens 2015 in Austin, Texas, Chicago, Illinois, Washington DC, New York City, New York, Phoenix, Arizona, San Francisco, California, and Seattle, Washington.
