International Cat Day, 2018: Check out Cowra's favourite felines

IT’S time to celebrate the paw-fect feline in your life this International Cat day.

Held on August 8 each year, the day is a 24-hour long recognition of the special moggy in your family.

Dog lovers may think their Fido is the bees knees, but cat lovers know that there is nothing better than a purring cat curling up on your lap.

So, roll out the red carpet, grab the catnip and celebrate all that is great about the kitties in our lives.

In order to mark this special day, we’re creating a gallery of your cat photos to share with our readers, so bring on the big, small, noisy, naughty and purring cats – we’d love to see all your photos.
