Respect Your Cat Day? It’s March 28 — And Every Day

It's Respect Your Cat Day

How will you celebrate Respect Your Cat Day?

Did you know March 28 is Respect Your Cat Day, Thomasina? Will your family be doing anything special?

Hey, Curious!

Wait a minute! Respect Your Cat Day is March 28??? I thought every day was Respect Your Cat Day! It should be!

I don’t think we’ll be doing anything
special here. Our human can be bossy sometimes, and she’s a bit overprotective. But no one’s perfect, and we know how much she respects us. She says she admires us, too, and we really like that!

So if you’re curious, these are some ways our human makes every day Respect Your Cat Day at our house. She’s learned a lot from us and other cats she knows!

We Make Every Day Respect Your Cat Day


Our human respects us for being exactly what we are… cats! She doesn’t think of us as her fur kids or fur babies. We’d find that disrespectful! We’re adults and contributing members of the family, although our contributions are different from hers. 

Here are some other ways she shows respect for us. These are good suggestions for you to show how much you respect your cat, too. 

Do Cats Have A Respect Your Human Day?

I don’t think cats have a Respect Your Human Day, and there’s probably a good reason for that. It’s not that we don’t respect you and your belongings. We do. We just think some of the things you do, like claiming the kitchen counters all for yourself, are a bit odd. 
Some humans are harder to train than others. But we never stop trying. And when people finally get it, we have a lot of respect for them.
I hope that answers your question, Curious. Oh, and happy Respect Your Cat Day to you and your cat!
