Q: Why is Live Like a Cat Day on the second Saturday in January?

A: First, we wanted to pick a date in the dead of winter when you are likely to be stuck in your house and not distracted by beautiful weather. We decided the LLACD should fall on a Saturday so Monday-Friday/9-5 workers could enjoy the holiday. If we picked an exact date (such as January 12th) this eventually wouldn’t work as it would eventually fall on a work day and many wouldn’t get to take full advantage of this glorious day.

Q: What if I have to work on Live Like a Cat Day?
