There are holidays like Black Cat Appreciation Day so why not Take Your Cat to the Vet Day? That’s the idea behind Royal Canin, the cat food manufacturer.

As part of National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day, the company asks owners to pledge to see the vet this year. Cat owners can visit Royal Canin’s pledge page and “scratch” their name on the pledge list. For every pledge taken through Friday, the company will donate a bowl of food to several animal shelters across the country.

If you want to keep your own cat healthy while helping those cats in shelters that still need good homes, visit the Royal Canin site and pledge to take your cat to the vet. Your cat might not appreciate this gesture, but some cat stuck in a shelter certainly will.
