Happy World Cat Day!

10

To commemorate World Cat Day, which falls today, August 8, we've rounded up some of the most popular photos of our feline friends taken by our fellow community members!

It was reportedly back in 2002 when *World Cat Day* was established by various animal groups led by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. We have to say, though, that it’s been a long time coming since cats have been companions to humans for thousands of years! Today we’ve come up with this little tribute for our furry loyal pets, Lomography-style. Have a look at these adorable snapshots taken using the different Lomo cameras!

    Happy Cat Day!! Never forget that cats are important!! 1347 to 1351 was the Black Death because the superstitious decided cats were minions of Satan, killed them, and rats overran Europe, bringing fleas and bubonic (and pneumonic) plague!! So, love your Kitty!!!!
