August 8th (today! That’s today!) is International Cat Day. Obviously, we could all be entertained for hours with the thousands of cat videos and GIFs that have been created, but instead we’ve chosen 11 GIFs to get you through International Cat Day. Now, if you have a cat, this is a very special day for your cat. It’s like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but for cats. So, get them a gift, treat them well, and love them an extra amount today.

These cats are definitely chill
