It's National Hug Your Cat Day!

I know, I know if you have a cat you do this EVERY DAY,  but today actually is:

In honor of this special day, I am posting some of my favorite "hug" photos, beginning with my Angel Bobo and of course my cuddle-bug Cody!

Now go and HUG your cat and if you don't have one, consider adopting a cat  (June is ADOPT A  CAT MONTH) or volunteering at a shelter today to give some HUGS to some cats who are in dire need of some lovin'!



Cats And Hugs
It's a proven fact that hugs from animals and giving hugs to animals will lower a persons blood pressure. Pets have the ability to stimulate their caregivers by decreased stress. There appears to be strong evidence that having a pet can help a person lead a longer, healthier life.

  1. Happy Hug your cat day! I'll pass on hugging Honey Delite, but will be sure to give her lots of pets and some delicious noms. I'm not sure how she'd do with hugs just yet...

  9. A very Happy Hug your Cat day. Looks like Cody likes those hugs. We are not crazy about hugs around here. So we will take the treats instead. Take care.

  20. I think it's healthier for TW if she doesn't hug me. MOL! I did let Pop pick me up and hug me this morning to keep him happy. The rest of the week will be spent keeping ME happy.

  21. Such an important message in this. Adopt a cat, such a thoughtful gesture. Hug a cat? Um, what do you reckon to that Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar? Penny? Where have you gone? Oops :)

    Penny's human,

    Gary :)

  23. Well, I took your advice and tried to give my feline sister, Rosie, a big hug, but she wasn't interested and walked away!

    Your pal, Pip

  27. Both of us have received several hugs and kisses from Mom Paula today (and everyday).

    Mom Paula says there is no better tranquilizer than a purring kitty!

  28. That is such a cute graphic…different than the other one (which we like as well) and so much fun. All the huggy photos must bring back so many lovely memories. Though not all of us love huggies, we all lined up for at least one from Dad and one from Mom yesterday. We figured we could indulge them for one day each year. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
