It’s International Cat Day, 2016
Today is International Cat Day, a 24-hour period meant to celebrate our beloved feline friends. International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) began this tradition in 2002. Cats are to be appreciated for many reasons. Cats make such good pets and provide many health benefits for their owners – children and elderly alike.

Upon sensing this, Oscar would sit vigil with the patient until their end, if conditions allowed.
