Special Days Falling on October 16thOctober 16th is the perfect date to consider others, ourselves, and our favorite feline friends. Here are some of the biggest celebrations taking place around the world today.
World Spine Day
Back pain is something that affects most of us and, when left untreated, can only get worse. Whether you deal with mild back pain on a daily basis, or serious pain every now and then, it’s time to call your doctor. Multiple things could be causing your back pain, but the only way to deal with it is by dealing with it!
World Food Day
We all need food, and when properly prepared, it can truly be one of the best parts of life! And, of course, food is considered to be a human right. Yet, there are still multiple countries around the world struggling with hunger and mass famine on a daily basis. On the other hand, we have countries like our own that are known for throwing away tons and tons of food every year! So, how do we deal with this inequality? Stop wasting food if you can help it!
Global Cat Day
Although many of us do not quite revere our cats as the Egyptians used to, they still mean a lot to us! Our feline friends can be difficult, clumsy, and downright violent, but they are also full of love, tenderness, and loyalty. So, treat your cat today, or see how you can help your local strays get adopted!
