20 adorable kittens from Instagram to celebrate “National Cat Day”

Guess what today is? It’s National Cat Day! Of course, there are two good ways to observe such a momentous occasion — you can cuddle on your own cat, or you can check out a list of adorable kittens from Instagram to help celebrate. Yeah, we know — you probably do those thing daily as-is. But today, you’ll be doing it for a good reason. And that reason is to celebrate the fantastic creature that is the cat.

National Cat Day isn’t just about staring at cute cat photos — in fact, it’s a day to help shelter cats find a forever home. (Or, uh — a “furrever” home. Also accepted: a “purrever” home.) If you’ve been looking to add a feline to your family, today might just be the best day!

Here are a few cuties that’ll remind you to adopt, not shop this National Cat Day

1. A Handful Of Kitten
