Singles Awareness (or Appreciation) Day (SAD) is a day that is celebrated on February 15th and is often seen as the counterpart to Valentine's Day. It's a day for people who are single to embrace their status and celebrate themselves - a fun-filled day of self-indulgence and just a pinch of self-depreciation.
Single folks everywhere are so used to dodging the question from well-meaning family members, "So, are you seeing anyone?"
"Uh, yeah, I'm seeing someone, Aunt Carol. I just had dinner with them last night."
Me, last night:
If you're single and a cat person, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Singles Appreciation Day with your furry friend. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Have a movie marathon with your cat
Snuggle up with your cat and watch some of your favorite movies. Whether you prefer romantic comedies or action-packed dramas, you and your cat can have a cozy time together. Bonus points if you have a cat-themed movie to watch.
Treat yourself and your cat to a special meal
Cook yourself a fancy dinner and set the table for you and your cat. You can even create a special menu just for the two of you.
If you're not in the mood to cook, order in from your favorite restaurant and enjoy a relaxing night in with your furry friend.
Go on a solo adventure with your cat
Take a walk or drive to a nearby park or nature reserve and explore the area with your cat. Take plenty of photos to document your adventure and enjoy the time spent together.
Have a spa day with your cat
Give yourself and your cat a relaxing spa day at home. Give your cat a nice grooming session, brush their fur, and give them a massage.
You can also treat yourself to a face mask, a warm bath, and some pampering, too.
Create a photo album with your cat
Take plenty of photos of you and your cat and create a special album to remember your SAD celebration. You can also add captions to the photos and make it a fun memory book.
Play games with your cat
Set up a scavenger hunt for your cat or play a game of hide and seek. You can also create an obstacle course for your cat to navigate or teach them a new trick.
Singles Awareness Day is a day for celebrating yourself and all that you are. If you're a cat person, your furry friend can be the perfect companion to celebrate the day with. So take the opportunity to spend quality time with your cat, treat yourself and your pet to something special, and make some new memories to last a lifetime.
