September Is Happy Cat Month

September is Happy Cat Month. Do you have a happy cat? Does your cat make you happy? Then celebrate!

Happy, Happy Cat Month!


I'm not sure how I overlooked it, but it has just recently come to my attention that the month of September has been designated as Happy Cat Month. Fortunately, there's still just over 24 hours left in the month for celebrating. (Just between us, this is a holiday I could celebrate every month and every day of the year!)

This is my cat, Dandy, celebrating the occasion by showing off his happy cat face.

I hope he made you smile.

Dandy is no longer with us, he crossed the Rainbow Bridge more than five years ago, but I'm happy to have pictures so I'll never forget his pudgy belly and this funny smile. Actually, as happy as I know he was, he usually had a rather serious look on his face, so I’m very glad to have caught this rare smile with the camera.

Celebrate With Cat Jewelry


So that we can celebrate Happy Cat Month and happy cats when we're away from home or when our cats are no longer with us, I went looking for happy cats that are a bit more, well, portable, and here's what I found and fell in love with.

Isn't this Grey Smiling Cat Brooch adorable? Cat jewelry from KaffeeKatze on Etsy
Gray Cat Brooch from KaffeeKatze on Etsy

Look at that face! Isn't this Grey Smiling Cat Brooch adorable? It's little, about an inch and a half (38 mm) in diameter, so easy to pin on a coat, a collar, or maybe even a purse. I like the idea of pinning this cute cat face on my jacket where people will catch a glimpse of it and smile.

The brooch is handmade by artist KaffeeKatze on Etsy using a clay bead, gray felt, a crystal bead for the ear, and even fishing line for whiskers. Reviews for this item and for all of KaffeeKatze's cat items are excellent - people love this cute kitty!

Keep in mind that it doesn't have to be September to celebrate Happy Cat Month. I hope you'll snuggle with your cat and treat him like he's special to make him happy every day of the year. And even if you don't have a cat, consider ordering this smiling cat face brooch as a gift for yourself or someone else who you know loves happy cats and cat jewelry.

Purrrfect!

  2. Your cat is too cute Miss Susan.....that smile is just too much. Love it completely. I agree every month could be cat month. As a matter of fact has anyone told the cats that it's only September? I'm sure they'd be straightened out quickly by the cats in their lives.......lol

    1. Glad you like our Dandy boy, Grammie. You're right that if a cat really thought he was supposed to demand a happiness celebration for just one month a year, his friends surely would set him straight!

  6. I love that cat smile of Dandy's. You must have made him happy. It's hard when our cats leave us. At least our photos do bring back the memories.

  7. It's no longer September, but I believe it can be 'Happy Cat Month' every month (and day). Cats in general just make US happy, so we do our best to make THEM happy. Adorable picture of Dandy!
