ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Saturday is International Cat Day! In honor of this holiday, Friskies released two new “Dear Kitten” videos. One video has the cat teaching the kitten the importance of giving massages. The other focuses on the importance of bathing humans.

Twitter has joined in on the celebration with the hashtag: #internationalcatday. Many people are chiming in online to share their love of all felines, cats and kittens alike.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare created the “Day of the Cat” to appreciate our feline friends who are often homeless in 2002.
