Cat-lovers, rejoice. National Cat Day is upon us and it's time to celebrate.

Each year on October 29, we celebrate National Cat Day - and when I say we, I'm implying that everyone who is anyone is participating. It's the perfect day to wear your National Cat Day shirt...or buy one if you're not already a proud owner...and spread the kitty love.

If you're not a cat person, this is the one day of the year that should transform you into one. After all, who wouldn't want a sweet, cuddly friend? And if you need examples, please just take the time to look at these kittens. Tell me they aren't adorable, I dare you.

Happy National Cat Day, friends! And don't forget to say "meow" to the cats in your life today!
