Happy Mew Year For Cats Day

Every year, the 2nd of January is Happy Mew Year for Cats Day. It’s a day to give your cat a very special holiday. Although it might seem like cats are already living their best life, it doesn’t hurt to give them their own special day—a day in which they’re pampered, shown a little bit of extra love, and maybe given a treat or two.

This is a day that’s similar to how humans celebrate New Year’s Day, except you know that your cat isn’t going to have any resolutions for the new year. They are just going to go ahead and be themselves, and that’s alright with us.
