Pet Holidays: National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day

There are quite a few pet holidays spread throughout the year, and today is time to observe National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day.  The holiday began as a chance to heighten awareness when your cat is communicating with you, as most felines do, and figure out what he’s trying to say to you.

When I first posed the question on our Facebook page in 2013, here are a few of the questions I got:

Cat Questions Then
  • “Why can’t you always read my mind?”
  • A hungry feline asks “where’s my jerky?”
  • “When music is playing, why can’t you hold me like a baby through the whole song?  Is that too much to ask?”
  • “Will you love me, feed me and never leave me?”
  • “I’m from Italy, where are you from?”
  • And the most asked question from my kitty Marty:  “Why are you waiting so long to feed me?”

It seems felines are much more cerebral with their questions these days.  Here are some I received today:
