You don’t have to be a professional shepherd to celebrate National Cat Herders Day, and in general the date is dedicated to non-fluffy animals… Today we need to congratulate people who manage their lives with ease, even if it is full of chaos! These daredevils do not stop at the impossible, stubbornly continuing to go.
National Day was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy, a married couple who gave Americans many unique holidays. The date and its description were published in the popular publication USA Today. Dave Platt, an IT specialist, popularized the idiom of “herding cats”: he compared such activities to managing senior managers.
During the Super Bowl in 2000, the final football game for the title of champion, this phrase became even more famous. The American company Electronic Data Systems, which provides information technology services, shared that it has the superpower to communicate with customers as easily as a shepherd controls cats. As you understand, it means that it is very difficult, but real!
Wherever you are and whatever you do, there are always different events waiting for you. Remember the saying and control life, even if it becomes unmanageable. Take an example from the people celebrating the holiday!
