Today is Cat Herders’ Day – a whimsical holiday dedicated to all those who feel like they’re battling an impossible task. Whether you’re literally trying to herd cats – a task that have been attempted by many herding dogs – or you’re struggling with something else, today is your day.
For cat people, the day means promoting everyone’s efforts to improve the lives of stray and homeless cats and other animals, and to take some time to appreciate the cats in our lives. If you don’t have a cat, adopting one and listening to its soothing purr might help alleviate the stress of managing the unmanageable.
If you’ve never seen a herding dog at work, check out this Youtube video of two Border Collies working together to bring in the sheep. Those dogs can run!
