National cat day has come a long way since its inception.
Its origins can be traced back to 1857, when a British scientist named Charles Dickens observed that cats are good at reading.
His observation sparked a scientific revolution and created a new category of animal, a cat called a cat-lover.
Cat-lovers were given a unique designation and they were allowed to live together in their own territories.
The first cat-themed amusement park was opened in the UK in 1957, and in 1960, Britain became the first country in the world to allow a cat as a mascot.
In 1966, the United States enacted a law that banned the sale of cats to anyone under the age of 16.
The National Grid’s National Anthem is a poem written by poet, playwright and songwriter William Shatner.
In 2018, the National Grid began a cat hunt that included the sale and placement of cats in the National Park, National Museum of Australia, National Theatre and the Royal Botanic Garden.
At a time when there are more cats than ever, the cat hunt aims to raise awareness of the plight of these beautiful animals.
