Today is World Cat Day. I know what you’re thinking: every day is cat day already, and why should we celebrate a bunch of manipulative carnivores that infest our homes and our internet? I’m sure not motivated to praise a cat. I will point out that cephalopods, as a measure of their relative worthiness, get a full week, but that’s not until October.
So what am I to celebrate today? I need an official reason to be happy, or I might just slump into a glum lump, you know.
Fortunately, we’re all in luck. Today has another official designation: it is Día Internacional del Orgasmo Femenino, a Brazilian (of course) holiday that has gone international. It’s the International Day of the Female Orgasm! Now that’s a holiday I can get into.
So shoo the cat into the basement — OK, you can give it a can of its favorite food or something — and get busy celebrating the real reason for 8 August to exist.
I wonder if Hallmark has cards for this event?
