DALLAS — Your kitten will probably mark the day with a nap, a romp around the house, a nibble of kibble and another nap.

But you can be as ambitious or as low-key as you like with your own National Cat Day celebrations.

Watch cat videos in a big way

Consumption of internet cat videos is bound to spike on National Cat Day.

Adopt a feline or treat a cat to something nice

giphyDallas Pets Alive! has tons of cute, cuddly cats that need a good home.

Volunteering at a local shelter or donating blankets, pet food and toys are also nice ways to celebrate the kitties of the world.

Uber is delivering kitten cuddles to offices in 50 cities, and the kitties in most of the cities are eligible for adoption.

Have a warm beverage at a cozy cat cafe

Muffin Meow Cafe is looking to open a location in Dallas.

It would be much like Cat Town Cafe in California. It’s a non-profit rescue that features a cafe and separate cat zone where between six and 20 adoptable cats roam freely.

Curl up on the couch

Revel in your role as warm furniture as you and your feline peruse cat books together.


While your cozy companion is sleeping, tune in to DVRed episodes of “My Cat From Hell” on Animal Planet and catch up with the Internet’s most famous felines.

Take a nap

It’s been a busy day. Rest up.


Zzzz… Happy National Cat Day!
