Speedy keep because it's to do with cats. No seriously, I'm aware of the term but I think it's only used in cat memes and has no real 'meaning'. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:02, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Here you go:

In 2005, users on /b/ had started encouraging each other to put funny captions under cute cat photos on Saturdays (or what became known as Caturday).

The Boy Kings: A Journey into the Heart of the Social Network, Katherine Losse, (c) 2012 Page 148: When he and his wife began to have children, they nicknamed them after Internet memes like the lolcat holiday, Caturday. Jeremy Jigglypuff Jones (talk) 22:51, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Your first citation is hardly English! Equinox 12:13, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

delete as encylopedic. Siuenti (talk) 01:33, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Keep, cited.--Prosfilaes (talk) 09:21, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
  • This isn't RFD, and the entry isn't encyclopedic. —Angr 22:27, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Looks cited to me. I'm not crazy about it, we probably need to be a bit clearer on the meaning, but I suppose everything else is ok. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:00, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
It is a real term, and it is cited. What's the matter? It honestly isn't any worse than ObamaCare. -- Liliana 15:34, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
This kind of thing (something made up for a website) should have an equivalent of WT:BRAND or WT:FICTION Siuenti (talk) 12:03, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
But people "celebrate" Caturday on sites other than 4chan now. Jeremy Jigglypuff Jones (talk) 09:14, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
That would give it a better chance of passing WT:BRAND. Siuenti (talk) 15:23, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Wouldn't it automatically pass WT:BRAND under any circumstances, since it's not a brand? Mglovesfun (talk) 18:27, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Correct, non-brand terms like this don't have to show they have "entered the lexicon". There just isn't any good reason why not, IMO. Siuenti (talk) 21:15, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
That's what three cites is for, to show they have entered the lexicon.--Prosfilaes (talk) 11:26, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
Passed. - -sche (discuss) 07:21, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
