The number 13 has a reputation for being unlucky, but the 13th annual celebration of National Feral Cat Day® was anything but! This year, Alley Cat Allies mobilized cat lovers to host more than 430 events to advocate for cats—more events than any year in the day’s history. Events were held in all 50 states, as well as in Panama, Mexico, Israel, and Canada.
In addition to record numbers of Trap-Neuter-Return workshops, spay/neuter drives, education events, and fundraisers, four counties in Florida—Sarasota, Charlotte, Manatee, and Hardee—issued proclamations recognizing the day.
This National Feral Cat Day® reached tens of thousands of people through events and proclamations—and millions more were exposed to the message. Alley Cat Allies staff made their way to The Today Show plaza in New York City on National Feral Cat Day® to spread the message of compassionate care for cats. They talked with audience members—and even with The Today Show’s hosts—about feral cats. Admiring our National Feral Cat Day® signs, The Today Show co-host Savannah Guthrie said, “It’s a great cause!”
We couldn’t agree more. Thank you for making this National Feral Cat Day® the best yet!
