International Cat Lady Day
International Cat Lady Day is held on April 19. This event in the second decade of the month April is annual. Help us
The reputation of a cat lady has come a long way since medieval Europe when a woman’s love for cats was a cause for suspicion and even scorn. Since then, the cat lady stereotype has transformed from a negative label into a popular one that many modern cat ladies wear with pride.
National Cat Lady Day is meant to emphasize the modern Cat Lady as a powerful, independent and caring figure who's not defined solely by the furry company she keeps, or how many cats she may have. We don't think that's fair. So-called "crazy cat ladies" are just ladies who happen to really, really like cats and would do anything for their beloved furry family members.
