National Cat Herders Day

It’s National Cat Herders Day – a day to celebrate those who manage their lives with ease, even when it’s full of chaos! These brave souls don’t give up on the impossible and keep pushing forward.


National Cat Herders Day was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy, a married couple who gave America many unique holidays. It was popularized by Dave Platt, an IT specialist who compared managing senior managers to herding cats. The phrase really gained traction during the 2000 Super Bowl when Electronic Data Systems (a provider of information technology services) declared that they have the superpower to communicate with customers as easily as a shepherd controls cats.

How to take part

If you’re looking to join in on the celebration, here are some ideas:

  • Organize a party! Invite friends and family, get some delicious food and drinks, and share your achievements.
  • Support a loved one in their endeavors. Listen to their problems and offer to find solutions together.
  • Reward yourself for your successes. Buy something you’ve been wanting, go on a trip, or treat yourself to some new clothes.

Above all, don’t give up on your dreams and keep moving forward. Celebrate National Cat Herders Day by being brave and taking control of your life!
