October 29 was National Cat Day, so Stuffy the Stand-in decided to skip his usual costume conundrum and select his own outfit (you can enjoy his Halloween fashion show here and vote for your favorites).  Since it was such a special day, there was only one thing Stuffy the Stand-in could dress as . . . a cat!  So he decided to be a witch’s black cat.  We think his choice is the cat’s meow!

Every October 29th, National Cat Day shines attention on the fact that an alarming number of cats need to be rescued each year.  We grew up in a house full of animals, and all of our current “babies” are rescues; so we were proud of the fact that Marmalade and Mason, the feline stars of Saying Goodbye, were adopted from shelters.  We have a great deal of admiration and respect for all the people who work and volunteer at shelters to improve the lives of all our furry friends, and we want to thank them for all that they do.

National Cat Day is also about celebrating the cats in our lives.  So because of that, we are reposting the Kitty Cat Dance, since it shows why cats are such amazing creatures: they are independent, clever, stubborn, and absolutely adorable.  If you own a cat, make sure to give him/her plenty of love today, and if you don’t have one, consider how you can help your local shelters.  

Have a purr-fectly wonderful National Cat Day!
