It's no secret that the internet loves cats. From charming videos of kittens playing with toilet paper rolls to hilarious memes featuring grumpy cats, felines have taken over our screens and captured our hearts. National Respect Your Cat Day is a tribute to this online obsession, reminding us to honor and cherish our feline companions in both the virtual and real worlds.
While the origins of National Respect Your Cat Day are not widely known, it was first documented on March 28, 2017, when the internet erupted with a flurry of posts, photos, and stories showcasing the love and respect people have for their cats. Since then, cat lovers around the world have embraced this special day as an opportunity to spoil their whiskered friends rotten.
Respecting your cat goes beyond just cuddling and feeding them. Here are a few suggestions to make your cat feel like the true royalty they believe themselves to be:
On average, cats sleep for around 15 hours a day. That means they spend about two-thirds of their life snoozing away! If you wish you could sneak in an extra nap or two like your feline friend, unfortunately, responsibilities and that pesky thing called work tend to get in the way.
The origin of the term 'respect your cat' can be traced back to the domestication of cats in ancient times. Cats were first domesticated by ancient Egyptians around 2000 BCE, and they held a special place in Egyptian society. Egyptians considered cats as sacred animals and believed they possessed mystical powers. They were even mummified like humans and buried with great care and respect.
As time went on, cats began to make their way into popular culture, leading to the increased awareness and appreciation for feline companions. In 1901, Beatrix Potter's classic children's book 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' was published, which featured the mischievous character of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, a domesticated cat. This popular story contributed to the growing fascination with cats and emphasized the importance of respecting them as companions.
In the 1950s, with the advent of television and later the internet, cats began to capture the hearts of millions worldwide. The internet cat phenomenon, which gained popularity in the early 2000s, showcased cats in various amusing videos and images, making them the stars of memes and viral content. This widespread exposure brought attention to the need for treating cats with respect and kindness.
Recently, the 'Respect Your Cat' movement has gained momentum as cat lovers advocate for treating cats with dignity and kindness. This movement aims to promote responsible pet ownership, discourage animal cruelty, and educate people on the needs and behaviors of cats. 'Respect Your Cat' has become an important message to raise awareness about the well-being and care of feline companions.
