Global Cat Day

Creating a Holiday

Global Cat Day

Summer of 2017, the phone rings at RP3. An intern answers, puts her hand over the reciever, turns pale, looks at me and says "There's someone on the phone who wants a website! What do I do?"

I calmly removed the phone from her hand.

What the person on the other end of the phone really wanted was to create an international holiday to celebrate cats around the world, and to raise awareness of how they need our protection.


And so Alley Cat Allies' Global Cat Day was born. I was the executive sponsor, led the team that built the website, and donated a ton of cat photography.
