Celebrate International Cat Day

International Cat Day comes on the 8th of August 2019 and aims to honour the most ‘a-meow-zing’ creatures in the animal kingdom. And, no, I’m not covering this because of all the cat puns! Benny loves his puns, but he loves his ‘pur-fect’ furry friends most of all. International Cat Day is a special day to recognise and celebrate of one of the humanity’s oldest and most beloved pets. At NetFlorist, cats are arguably the best pet to have (or is that just my own bias?) Either way, explore our range of pet gifts from NetFlorist and ensure that this International Cat Day is a ‘pur-fect’ day to show your love towards your cat.

 

What Is The History of International Cat Day?

International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) created International Cat Day in 2002 to celebrate the most popular pet on the planet. International Cat Day is a day to raise awareness for our feline friends and learn about ways to help and protect them. NetFlorist likes to be on the forefront of world conservation, so don’t let the cat puns fool you, we take this day as serious as we do our biggest occasions! Cats have been domesticated for nearly 4,000 years, but today, they are valued for their fellowship and loving behaviour.

Though not well known, the collective nouns used for cats and kittens are a clowder of cats or a kindle of kittens. Our domestic cats are called as little cats. But International Cat Day doesn’t just refer to our household furry friends, though. These beautiful animals usually vary from large cats such as lions and tigers which are strong and predatorial by nature, to cheetahs and panthers which are fast and cunning. Whichever cat is your favourite, whether big or small, dangerous or adorable, NetFlorist wants to help you celebrate International Cat Day the best way possible!

Today, cats are the most popular pet animal in all countries, at nearly 500 million domestic cats in the world. Being around cats has been shown to improve one’s mental health and to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. With NetFlorist, you can make sure that International Cat Day is an annual celebration of one of the world’s favourite animal companions.

Goodbye Harold, Hello Benny!

The NetFlorist bunch have finally said goodbye to Harold Flowers. The quirky and sometimes-out-of-line gifting genius will always be in our hearts, just as he was always in the spotlight! Wondering who could ever fill the shoes of one who walked the edge of overwhelming love and overwhelming shock? Need to fill the hole that Harold left behind? Am I going too far and not making my point soon enough?

Well, beloved gifters and giftees, I’m here to scratch that itch, or my name isn’t Benny Bloom! Did I forget to mention? My name is Benny Bloom, and I’m the new voice of the Rambling Rose. I hope you’ll find my ramblings just as informative and as fulfilling as the ones that Harold prided himself to presenting.

 

About Benny Bloom

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
  • I’m an avid reader of romance novels (a little too much for my own good).
  • I am fun, flirty and quirky but unfortunately, I can be very clumsy. I’ve been told I’m blind to the real world, but I still don’t see it!
  • I’d love to think I’m funny, but not to worry, it’s usually at my own expense (Mother told me never to be mean)!
  • As a hopeless romantic, I’m somewhat of a relationship expert and will ensure to give the best advice for flower gifts that will get you out of any sticky situation, no matter the occasion!

 

YOUR FAVOURITE FLOWER?

Mhmm… It’s difficult to choose. On one hand, the rose is the flower and handmaiden of love, so it’s as radiant as the day is long. But the lily, to me, is the emblem of beauty and purity. I love the rose for its various shades of floral brilliance. Whether it’s an anniversary gift or a love and romance gift, you can never go wrong with a radiant rose bouquet or rose vase. Pink roses represent admiration and hopeful love and affection, white roses convey virtue and unity, whereas red roses symbolise true and endless love.

I love lilies for their subtle beauty; since lilies come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors, they are the perfect flower gift for any special occasion. So, whether you’re looking for a thank you gift that will express heartfelt gratitude to the one you value the most, or a birthday gift that is sure to melt the heart of a graceful woman, lilies are an extraordinary gift to give.

 

YOU CAN’T SURVIVE WITHOUT?
  • The finest bottle of wine after a long day (or at the beginning of one)!
  • A good romance novel; maybe something by Nicholas Sparks?

 

MOST USED WORD(S)?

“Love” and “Radiant.”

 

FAVOURITE DAY OF THE WEEK?

Fri-yay, at exactly wine o’clock!

 

FAVOURITE NETFLORIST RANGE?

Definitely, the flower gifts range! NetFlorist is South Africa’s largest sameday flower and gifting delivery service for a reason, and from the exquisite pink midi orchids to the exquisite elegance of white lilies, our flowers are top-tier and are sure to melt the heart of someone special, just as they constantly melt mine!

I simply can’t get over the clothing range as well! For a floral company, NetFlorist sure brings it with their phenomenal personalised clothing essentials. From activewear clothing for the avid runner, or quirky gaming T-shirts for the gamer with a love for their geek culture!
