August 8 marks World Cat Day. 

Not only are cats cute and adorable, but they also make loyal friends. 

Having a cat in your home comes with benefits because cats deter rodents and other pests.

They are also easy to take care of because they clean themselves and are low maintenance. They also don't require much space. 

However, sometimes cats are abused by their owners. They are not well-fed and sometimes they lack proper medical care after falling sick or suffering injuries.
