DALLAS (KDAF) — A week of August has come and gone and that means August 8 is here and it just so happens to be International Cat Day!

Cats are one of the craziest yet normal pets people can own, their mannerisms are other-worldly yet so common it just makes sense. NationalToday says, “Cats are one of the coolest beings on the planet: they are independent, inquisitive, adventurous, have an amazing physiognomy, and the power to heal by themselves — at least most of the time.”
