Quesnel’s feline friends celebrate International Cat Day

Who’s the cutest local creature?

Wednesday, Aug. 8 is International Cat Day, and the Observer is celebrating by showcasing some of the city’s most adorable kitties.

The day was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, and it’s now celebrated each year.

In related news, the Quesnel SPCA today posted on its Facebook page that this month has seen the branch inundated with 40 cats and kittens brought in for help and shelter. They encourage locals to have their cats spayed or neutered with their Prevent a Litter program.

The Observer asked readers on Facebook to contributed their favourite photos of their cats in honour of International Cat Day and the post has so far received more than 100 photos.

Make sure your feline friends get a special treat tonight in honour of their special day, and check out some of Quesnel’s cutest cats below.
