60 Instagram Captions For International Cat Day

Honor your furball.

Just in case you needed another reason to celebrate your cat (AKA the one true ruler of your household), International Cat Day takes place every year on August 8. It’s the perfect excuse to buy your cat some new treats, a cute toy they’ll love, or just to shower them with extra love and cuddles. It’s also a great excuse to post some more photos of your little furball on social media to show them off to the world — and if you need some Instagram captions for International Cat Day, there are plenty of options out there. From sweet quotes about a pet owner’s love for their cat to funny cat puns that will tickle your whiskers, this list of 60 captions are perfect for any kind of photo.

Only cat owners can truly understand the joy of sitting down in a comfortable spot and having your cat come over to cuddle with you all on their own. Cats only do what they want to do (good luck getting them to do anything else), so if they choose to sit on your lap, that really says something. Capture the moment with a cute selfie or have someone else grab it, then post it online immediately. You should also try to grab some photos of your cats and your kids, because, really, few things are more adorable than children and pets. Any of these photos, as well as just a sweet photo of your feline(s), would be perfect for a tribute post to them online. Check out the Instagram caption ideas below to find the right saying to go with your picture.
