It's about time cat ladies had their own day, and today is it. That's right, friends -- April 19 is, and shall always be, recognized as the official National Cat Lady Day.
CatCon creator, Susan Michals, says of National Cat Lady Day: "The notion of the cat lady as a dowdy spinster has shifted dramatically over the past few years. Now it's chic to be a cat lady! Designers like Stella McCartney and Kate Spade are using cats in their designs, and celebrities like Dita VonTeese, Ke$ha, and Kate McKinnon are embracing their love of the feline with enthusiasm."
I, for one, and relieved that the world is finally realizing you can be a cat lady, and also be social, have a sense of style, and show some sass.
