SIGNIFICANT EVENTS 8 AUGUST
Today World cat day. It was created in 2002 by the International Fund for the Protection of Animals and celebrated annually, not only to honor furry couch potatoes, but to draw attention to the problem of homeless cats and cats.
After all, there are few people on the planet who remain indifferent to these fluffy, agile, affectionate and very intelligent animals.
There is even a science about cats – felinology (from Latin felinus – a cat and Greek logos – science), which emphasizes that cats are very smart and useful. The domestic cat (Felis catus) belongs to the feline family, in which there are 2 subfamilies, 4 genera and about 36 species. It is known that representatives of both subfamilies, 3 genera and 12 species, live in Russia.
August 8 is celebrated International Mountaineering Day (Mountaineer Day).
We owe the manifestation of this holiday to two brave Swiss – the physician Michel-Gabriel Paccard (1757-1827) and the mountain guide Jacques Balmat (1762-1834). On August 8, 1786, they were the first of all climbers to reach the highest point of the Alps – the Mont Blanc peak, whose height is 4810 meters above sea level.
All about the mountain peaks of Tajikistan, who dream to conquer climbers from all over the world, read here.
