You and your cat share a bond that sometimes can’t be recreated with other animals. Cats are loyal, love to show affection, and enjoy being able to spend time with their families. They also love to be celebrated, and this month (October 29) cats have their special day with “National Cat Day.” The day is not only a day to focus on your feline companion, but also a day to remember that there are many cats, both young and old, that are in need of forever families.

Did you know that there are many ways to honor your cat on this special day? We suggest giving some of these ideas a try on October 29th (and throughout the rest of the year) so you can show your cat the attention and love that they look for.

Adopt a cat from Larimer Humane Society

Larimer Humane Society Shelter Manager Brett DeWester reminds everyone that the shelter offers a wide variety of cats that are looking for homes. “Because Larimer Humane Society is an open admission shelter, we receive cats of all ages, temperaments, breeds, colors, and hair lengths! All of our cats and kittens come to us with their own unique histories and our behavior and medical teams work diligently to learn as much as possible about each individual prior to placing up for adoption to ensure our adopters are set up for success with their new family members.” If you’re interested in adopting a cat, please contact Larimer Humane Society at (970) 226-3647.


Commit to your cat’s health and look at buying high-quality treats and food.

Our partners at Poudre Pet & Feed Supply have a wide variety of cat food to choose from for all different life stages. They are passionate about improving the lives of cats (and other animals) in our community and can assist you in finding the right food for your cat.


Spend the day taking a photoshoot of your cat and share them all over your social media!

Your cat deserves the attention and for everyone to see how much of an amazing animal she is. This is her day, so let everyone see her while they scroll through Facebook and Instagram.


Make your cat a special snack for the day.

We found this recipe for Crunchy Tuna Cat Treats and we know your furry friend will enjoy them as a special treat! 


Make sure your cat is licensed!

National Cat Day is a great reminder to make sure that everything is up-to-date for your cat’s license. The licensing department at Larimer Humane Society can assist you with any question you may have concerning your cat, including all annual renewals. They can be reached at (970) 226-3647 ext. 201 or by visiting the licensing page on our website


Cats can make a difference for everyone in your family and deserve love and attention year-round. If you’ve always wanted to adopt a cat from Larimer Humane Society, this is the time to do it!
