CATalyst Council Announces Happy Cat Month This September

Annapolis, MD, August 27, 2015 --( This September, CATalyst Council celebrates Happy Cat Month, an event that serves to educate and inform cat owners in regards to what they can do to ensure their pet is happy.

CATalyst Council created the annual event to assist in spreading the word about the health, welfare, and value of companion cats. Often, cats are viewed as self-reliant, aloof, and less in need of medical care than dogs. The aim of this event is to counteract these stereotypes and ensure cats are well cared for, enriched, and receive the preventive care they require.

The month will focus on one topic per week and distribute information via Social Media – the CATalyst Council Facebook Page (, Twitter (, and the official event sites and

· Week 1 – Happy Healthy Cat (September 1-5)
· Week 2 – Happy Enriched Cat (September 6-12)
· Week 3 – Happy Multi-Cat (September 13-19)
· Week 4 – Happy Valued Cat (September 20-30)

All interested parties are invited to help promote the event and encourage cat owners to ensure their pets are happy, healthy, and valued. More information, including a media kit and additional resources, can be found on the official event site at and

CATalyst Council is a non-profit organization that includes a wide variety of animal health, welfare organizations, and corporate members of the animal health industry that are working together to improve the health and welfare of America’s favorite pet. It was founded in response to troubling statistics released by the American Veterinary Medical Association that indicate an increase in our nation’s pet cat population coupled with a decline in veterinary care.
