Cat lovers rejoice because October 29th is officially National Cat Day! It is the day to celebrate all the things we love about cats. Whether it is their adorable purrs, their cute eye blinks, their hilarious antics, or their cuddly personalities, cats make our lives better every single day. Use this day to spoil your kitty with extra love and affection to show them just how much you truly care for them. In honor of this special cat holiday, here are ten cats that will remind you just exactly why cats are so amazing.
1. Kitty Can’t Stop Purring
This kitty is so happy that it’s contagious. He can’t stop purring because he is getting a personal massage from his owner. His owner rubs his nose, his head, and his neck, making him close his eyes in happiness. The cat is so happy he starts licking his owner’s fingers, pushing his head against him as he continues to purr. The motor on this cat never stops running, as he keeps purring the entire video. This cat sure has a content life. Oh to have the life of a cat. Having a personal masseuse seems pretty nice if you ask me.
2. Amazing Fence Balance Skills
While some people will actually pay money to learn balancing techniques with gymnastics or yoga, this cat was born with the ability. This fluffy cat is able to perfectly balance himself and walk along a skinny fence, and let’s just say this guy is not the skinniest of cats. He walks along the top of the fence effortlessly, making us humans look meager in comparison. The ability cats have to balance on practically anything is truly amazing to watch because they make it look so easy. Only if it were just as easy for us.
3. Acrobatic Cat Jumps In Slow Motion
This cat’s acrobatic skills are off the charts intense. He loves to jump, so his owner set up a toy hanging from the ceiling. He then set up a slow motion camera to capture his kitty in action. Over and over this cat jumps into the air to reach for the toy. It’s amazing to see the flexibility of his body in slow motion. The way cats can bend and twist and jump is like no other creature. He stretches into the air so naturally. And of course, not like this was a question, he always lands on his feet.
4. Affectionate Cat Rubs Owner’s Leg
If you have a cat, the affectionate rub on the leg is something you definitely have experienced. And, it’s something that makes you love cats. Many cats, like this one in particular, love to rub against our legs, and we of course find it extremely cute. It’s adorable how this kitty keeps pushing his head into his owner’s leg, showing his affection and love for his owner. He keeps going and going and never quits. The leg rub is a cat’s signature way to our hearts.
5. Loving Cat Slowly Blinks
When a cat blinks at you, it is not only extremely adorable, but it is actually their way of telling you that they love you and that they feel comfortable being around you. This cat loves his owner so much that he keeps giving him slow prolonged blinks. His face says it all. If you look at this cat and don’t fall apart from being overwhelmed with cuteness, there is something wrong with you. Try blinking at your cat to see if they blink back.
6. Cute Kittens Meow For Dinner
One of the reasons people fall in love with cats is because of their adorable meow. Meowing is extremely cute, but what is even cuter are multiple kittens meowing all at once. There is nothing like the high pitch meow of a tiny precious kitten. And if you take that one meow and multiply it by five, then you definitely have got a cute video. These kittens are hungry, so they start meowing at their owner for dinner, who instead decided to pick up the camera because it was so darn cute. The little squeaks of their meow are to die for. How could you not fall in love with these kittens?
7. Cardboard Box Play Time
Cats and cardboard boxes, there is no greater pairing. Who needs the toys that came in the box, when you can just play with the box itself! All cat owners know the hardships of having a cat and having a spare box in your house. The box immediately goes from the recycling can, to another toy for your cat. This owner has turned her spare box into a game of peek-a-boo. The kitten jumps out of the box every time her owner puts a little coin there. It’s the simple things like boxes that make us love cats.
8. Kittens Climb Woman Like A Tree
First of all, what person wouldn’t want a bunch of kittens to climb them like a tree, that is the serious question. Being a cat means having the ability to pretty much climb anywhere they want. Cats climb the sofa, trees, our beds, and more at their own will. Whatever it is, they will climb it, including us humans. These cats are so ecstatic to see their rescuer that they not only run over to her, but they actually start climbing her like a human tree! While to some this may seem burdensome, to cat lovers it is a dream come true.
9. It’s Stretching Time
Cats are very stretchy creatures that enjoy continually stretching throughout the day. While to cats it is just a natural habit, to us humans it is so adorable that we will even try to take a photo of it as it happens, but most of the time it just turns out blurry. This video features all of your classic cat stretching positions, including the body bridge, arching the back, stretching while walking, and stretching while sitting. See if you can do any of them yourself.
10. Fluffy Kitty Kneads Her Owner
Mitto the cat loves to knead, and it doesn’t matter the location. She especially loves to knead her mommy and is constantly kneading on her stomach on a blanket. Mitto is very gentle and would never harm her owner because she loves her, hence the kneading. The kneading motion of cats is yet another adorable natural trait that we humans cannot resist. It is so sweet how Mitto keeps kneading the entire video, never taking one break. Mitto loves to shower her owner with love and affection.
