So today we celebrate the household cat, all 500 million of them worldwide. Here in the US there are 95 million alone, I sort of would have expected more. We have 10, well nine that stay with us and one that wanders. Every day they find some reason to hate each other but eventually, around suppertime, find a way to get along. The oldest cat known to have lived was Creme Puff who lived to be 38 years and 3 days old. That’s a long time for any animal with a few exceptions. Today was created by in International Fund for Animal Welfare in 2002.
