Nicole Kidman has shared a throwback snap from the 1999 film Practical Magic in celebration of International Cat Day.

In the picture, the actress, in character as witch Gillian, cradles a black cat.

She captioned the snap: “I’ve always been a cat girl.”

Taylor Swift embraced the celebration by sharing reams of photos and videos of her cats, Meredith and Olivia, in a variety of odd poses, including on top of a Scrabble board and flat on their backs.

In one picture she compared Olivia to a baby seal because of the way she lies on her back.
