DALLAS (KDAF) — Cats are awesome pets. They are independent, chill and very loving pets. In celebration of the greatness that are cats, Sunday, Oct. 16 is Global Cat Day!

“Global Cat Day, which takes place October 16, reminds us that educating, engaging, and empowering people to defend and protect cats is the right thing to do. They say dogs are man’s best friend.
