World Cat Day is celebrated on Friday, August 8, 2014. Cats and kittens of every size and color are being recognized all over the world for their beauty and grace.

America adores cats because they make great companions and today, you'll find cat owners talking about their favorite felines all over social media.

Just like humans have fingerprints, did you know the nose pad of every cat is unique to them? Some cat theories include how a cat is believed to have nine lives or how they could have special healing powers.
