Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

― Robert A. Heinlein

Mysterious, feline-like, unbothered, independent, graceful, and smooth operators – no, we're not describing the typical VienneMilano shopper – rather, cats! And all for good reason, in case you weren’t aware, it’s almost International Cat Day.

Once accustomed to being worshipped 365 days a year (looking at you, ancient Egypt,) today’s modern felines have to make do with a mere 24 hours a year. Which to a cat isn’t much time at all, given they snooze away 13 to 14 hours a day.

But we at VienneMilano know that cat appreciation is a year-round dedication, the work of a lifetime! General animal lovers, cats dearly hold a special place in our hearts. This is why you might have noticed several animal prints among our thigh high collection (that we highly recommend you go check out because they’ll be selling out fast come the big cat day!

But for now, we hear you questioning ...

"What is International Cat Day?"

In cats' estimation, every day is cat day. However, since 2002, every year on the 8th of August, we bow down a little more to our feline friends.

Set in motion by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, the organization has since passed the torch to International Cat Care in 2020.

Paired to humanity for 9,500 years, these miny house tigers (house cats share 95.6% of their genetic makeup with tigers) need our protection despite their insistence to the contrary. So, on this special day, we remember what cats mean to us and work towards a better future for their precious selves!

How can I celebrate International Cat Day?

Volunteer at your local cat shelter, adopt a cat, pamper your precious pet, and invest in their safety (GPS tracker highly recommended!) There are several fun ways to pay homage to our four-legged friends, but at VienneMilano, we like to do things in style. So, to celebrate the occasion, we recommend these gorgeous (and on-theme) thigh high styles:
