The author of a manifesto for an official cat day and the owner of a Manhattan cat clinic are working together to raise money for Hurricane Katrina pet victims.

Stu Hample, author of Happy Cat Day, says that all proceeds from the sale of the book at Manhattan Cat Specialists will be donated to Katrina aid relief.

The clinic, located in the Upper West Side of New York City, offers veterinary care exclusively for felines.

Clinic founder and Cat Fancy contributor Dr. Arnold Plotnick acknowledged that the book sales will not raise thousands of dollars, but said that every effort helps.

We have a nice, caring clientele, and as the weather gets warmer, well probably get more people buying the books, Plotnick said.

The $15 book, illustrated by Hample and purportedly written by his cat, Tiger, humorously calls for a National Cat Day to be established on August 15, telling readers how to promote the holiday by contacting legislators and seeking a Cat Day postage stamp.
