We love Disney Cats!

National Cat Day was founded as a way to bring awareness to the number of homeless cats. It is a celebration that takes place annually on October 29th. The National Cat Day website states that the holiday was first celebrated in 2005 “to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.” The day is founded by Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert, Colleen Paige supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit organization which also works to encourage pet adoption.

Disney Adulting encourages you to discover 20 Ways to Celebrate National Cat Day to see how you can bring the celebration to your cat or home.

In the spirit of celebrating National Cat Day, we’ve put together this incredible list of cat and cat-inspired Disney characters. Celebrate with us by sharing this article and using the hashtag, #NationalCatDay

    All of them❤️???

      Me too! I think my favorite, if I was forced to pick just one, would be Bagheera. I just love how his character is smooth, intelligent, and logical.

      I highly recommend reading the original book by Rudyard Kipling if you are a “Baggy” fan too. He describes him in such a way that you can’t be intrigued with him as a character.

      “Everybody knew Bagheera, and nobody dared to cross his path; for he was as cunning as Tabaqui, as bold as the wild buffalo, and as reckless as the wounded elephant. But he had a voice as soft as wild honey dripping from a tree, and a skin softer than dawn.”

      I’d say Disney nailed that one in their animated and live action versions. 🙂

    Wow, I didn’t realize there were so many cats in Disney movies, but seeing them all it’s like, “Duh, how could I forget!?”

    I love Sassy from Homeward Bound. That whole movie is fantastic, and she is just so cute!

    Gonna snuggle my kitty as soon as I get home! <3

      Crazy, right? I’m going to get a running tally of Disney Cats vs. Disney Dogs for a post eventually. I’m totally a cat-person, so of course, I had to do this one first. >.~
