It's National Cat Day In Japan - Here's How To Celebrate

It's National Cat Day In Japan - Here's How To Celebrate

February 22nd may seem like another ordinary wintery day to us Americans - but if you're in Japan, today is National Cat Day (aka, the best day of all time)!


Why today?

Feb 22 - 2/22 - in Japanese (ni ni ni) sounds like the Japanese word for "meow" - nyan. If you didn't know that, and you've seen the video of Nyan Cat on YouTube, the world is starting to make a little more sense right now, eh?

Since we're in Brooklyn (which is decidedly NOT Japan), we're allowing a little Monday fantasizing and we've come up with the ideal "Cat Day" - wherever you are!

  • Wake up and put on your favorite cat costume:
  • Then dress your cat:

  • Play a prank on your cat:
