17 ways my cats celebrate World Cat Day

Stuck for ideas on how to celebrate World Cat Day? Dawn, Athena, Calvin and Elsa Clair offer a glimpse into how they spend this special holiday.

1) Playing in a box fort.

Reasons why cats love boxes: They make great forts.

These walls are strong. I’m sure they’ll hold against the terrier of the black forrest.


2) Staying in bed late

World Cat Day activity: resting in a cat bed

If there’s a cat on it, it’s a cat bed.


3) Escaping to an island retreat.

Calvin and Elsa Clair look like they're caught in the act of trying to stow away.

Quick! Into the suitcase. They’ll never notice.


4) Getting some climbing in.

World Cat Day: cat has her own way of climbing stairs

This is the more challenging route, but that’s what I like about it.


5) Going bird watching.

World Cat Day activity: bird watching.

A goldfinch, three sparrows, a red-bellied woodpecker and seven tufted titmice…so far.


 6) Taking some time out for yoga

Maintaining the Full Meatloaf Position takes practice.


7) Watching online videos with friends

How come she always knows about the cool videos before I do?


8) Taking a long, relaxing bath

Can’t a cat have a little privacy here?


9) Settling down with a good book…or nine.

World Cat Day activity: catch up on a few books

One can never have too many books…or cats.


10) Going bug hunting

Hunting the elusive–and challenging–stink bug.


11) Having a ball…specifically, the dog’s ball

12) Power napping

13) Shoe shopping. (Those World Cat Day sales have great bargains!)

Do these go with my fur?


14) Sunbathing

I like just a touch of shade on my lounge.


15) Binge watching a favorite TV series (like Dr. Who)

16)  Playing with the new toys that the Cat Lady left under the cat tree
