International Cat Day is a celebration which takes place on the 8th August, every year. It was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. International Cat Day is also referred to as World Cat Day.
I have a cat called Coco, she is 14 years old and is a tabby cat.
The Ecology Global Network estimates that there are about 600 million small cats in the world.
This includes pets, strays, homeless and feral cats.
The number of wild cats is estimated at about 100 million.
This is Coco in her igloo.
