Learn about the Zoo’s cats and cat conservation efforts at International Cat Day. In addition to participating in activities and games, Zoo guests will have the opportunity to observe animal enrichment opportunities throughout the morning.

International Cat Day will be held at the Zoo’s Lion Overlook and Cat Forest areas on Saturday, July 6, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Attendees can participate in fun cat activities, learn about cat conservation, observe animal enrichment activities, and adopt their own lion cub plush. Activities include International Cat Day Olympics such as the clouded leopard balance beam, cat species long jump, and feline coat pattern matching activity.

Carnivore caretakers will be located at Lion Overlook at 9:30 a.m. for a caretaker chat and lion feeding.  During the caretaker chat, guests can ask questions about the Zoo’s African lions, Sumatran tigers, and other cat species. If you can’t make it to International Cat Day, join us virtually at 8:45 a.m. for our live caretaker chat on Facebook @okczoo. In addition to the International Cat Day caretaker chats, the carnivore team will be demonstrating how the Zoo’s animal and veterinary care teams performs animal-led wellness exams. Guests can find them at Lion Overlook throughout the event and get an inside look at how the Zoo cares for its cat species.
