Celebrating National Cat Day – With Poems About Cats | Writer’s Relief

October 29 is National Cat Day and—maybe you’ve noticed—cats are kind of a big deal on the Internet. If you’re online for even the briefest time, you’re sure to see cat memes, cat videos, and fun photos of our feline friends.

So Writer’s Relief invites you to take a moment to check out this list of really beautiful poems about cats, from writers like Emily Dickinson to T.S. Eliot (of course) to Anna Seward.

And even if you’re not a fan of felines, read the poems anyway. They’re wonderful! You’ll be purring with literary contentment.


Question: Cats or dogs?
