History of International Cat Day

Cats descended from the African wild cat and were domesticated by humans as pets since ancient times. The first historical human record of cats was found in the culture of the ancient Egyptian civilization, where the Egyptians considered them deities and protectors, and after the collapse of the Egyptian family, cats became common everywhere! The Greeks and Romans used them to control pests, and in the East, cats were originally owned by the wealthy.

During the Middle Ages, cats were associated in Europe with superstition and suspected of carrying disease during the Black Death, so many cats were killed in that era, but in the seventeenth century, cats regained their reputation as a companion to humans.

In our time, it was decided 20 years ago by the International Fund for Animal Welfare that the half-billion cats living among humans should have their own day.
