October 29th is recognized as National Cat Day. It was developed by Colleen Paige to raise awareness of the yearly need for cat rescue. Cats serve as a gentle reminder that people can change their minds about you at any time. They’ll somehow let you know that their entire universe revolves around you, even when it seems like they’re too busy peering out at passing automobiles, chasing nylon mice, and sending small multi-colored balls to their under-the-refrigerator graves. Simply wait. When you least suspect it, it will occur. Cats follow their own schedule.
