This funny article from the Seattle Times talks about the many, many holidays you may not know about. For example: Talk Like A Pirate Day, World Smile Day, National Cheeseball Day and ...Shave Your Cat Day. The last one is actually something a cat owner might do, according to this website, to cool the cat during the summer or remove matted fur. A favorite direct quote from the website: "...when you you get your cat from the groomer, make a fuss over how gorgeous it looks. If your cat is embarrassed by having its fur removed, making a fuss can help him a lot."
