February 22nd is Neko (Cat) Day in Japan!
Cat Day was established in 1987 as “A memorial day that allows you to appreciate the fact that you can live happily with the joy of a cat.” Why is the memorial day on February 22nd? In Japan, a cat meow is pronounced “Nya~”. Number 2 is pronounced “Ni”; 2/22 is “Ni Ni Ni” which sounds like “Nya Nya Nya”. (Close enough?) Let’s celebrate the day of the cat!
