Most of us rather like our cats to have a streak of wickedness. I should not feel quite easy in the company of any cat that walked about the house with a saintly expression.

There’s nothing quite like having a furry footed feline friend bombing around your house and being the best buddy a person can ask for. Dogs may be man’s best friend, but Cats are our bosom companions, even if they can be aloof and contrary. To our mind, that just makes them more interesting! The best of all cats? The orange furred balls of love that are Ginger Cats. Ginger Cat Appreciation

History of Ginger Cat Appreciation Day

Cats have been part of the human experience nearly as long as dogs, and have served as important a role in our lives as our canine companions. It’s likely that cats started living alongside us as a matter of mutual convenience, as our agricultural pursuits created a perfect environment for vermin to gather.

These vermin also happened to comprise one of the primary food sources of the soon to be domesticated feline, and so it was convenient for them to hang around. Having become accustomed to our presence they soon moved into our homes continuing their jobs as vermin hunters, helping to prevent the spread of disease and insect pests there.

Today they continue in these roles, but they are also the closest and most loving companions we can have, even if they do get a bit cantankerous from time to time. When they aren’t lying about being the most adorable cuddle puffs you can imagine, they’re sneaking about the house and engaging in their strange but wondrous feline behavior. Ginger Cat Appreciation Day celebrates the most glorious of the feline companions, the ginger cat.

How to celebrate Ginger Cat Appreciation Day

Ginger Cat Appreciation Day is best celebrated by spending time with your favorite four footed feline friend! Has it been a while since you’ve had quality time to spend alone with them? Bring them something special like a new catnip mouse or a brand new cat-tree!

We guarantee that no matter what you buy them, they’re going to love… the box. Did we mention that cats are contrary right? Whatever you do, remember that your furry friend relies on you for everything, even if they often act like they’re above it all. If you don’t have a cat, maybe it’s time to get one. Don’t go to a breeder or pet store though, instead pick one up from a shelter!
