Monday Matters: International Tiger Day, July 29, 2013

Simon’s Cat reminds us that today is International Tiger Day!
International Tiger Day-July 29, 2013

Did you know Tiger Day is held annually on July 29 to give worldwide attention to the preservation of tigers?

It was founded at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010. At that time wild tigers were dangerously close to extinction. In the last 100 years there has been a 97% reduction in their numbers.
Today has been established to raise awareness of their vulnerable position and to celebrate these amazing animals.  You can find out more at TigerDay.org.
Thanks, Simon’s Cat for this information.

Hey, Don’t forget about us. When is our day? Huh? C’mon. A tiger’s a tiger, and a cat’s a cat. We need our special day, too.
What? You mean there is a National Cat Day? Well, now we’re talking.

Two National Cat Days?  Wow. June 4th AND October 29th?
And World Cat Day is August 8, 2013? Hey, that’s coming up!
Woohoo. That gives us less than two weeks to plan a doozy of a party!
We is famous! We is famous. Let's party!

  1. Reblogged this on Hopes and Dreams: My Writing and My Sons and commented:
    The tiger, especially the white tiger, is my favorite animal. Studies show that in 12 years all tigers will be extinct. We can’t let this happen!

  2. Yay, tigers! I once had the marvelous opportunity of petting a Bengal. Its teeth were as long and as thick as my fingers!

  3. that’s so cool! I had no idea. I LOVE big cats. They are so beautiful and powerfully majestic. My family’s orange tabby is named Tigger 🙂
