Hug Your Cat Day 2016

Yes, yes, yes, I KNOW that EVERY DAY should be "Hug Your Cat Day" but June 4th has been designated as "Hug Your Cat Day", I believe by "Days Of The Year.com"

Don't have a cat?
This would be the purrfect time to consider adopting one. There is nothing better than the unconditional love, joy and health benefits that cats bring to us (dogs and other animals do too, but this post isn't about them!), and they ask for so little in return. All they ask for is for us to love them, to provide safety, security, good food, toys, playtime, and regular veterinary checks.

If only others in our lives needed so little to give us SO MUCH!!

The photo below is of my Angel Bobo (sorry Cody, but you are featured here ALL of the time!). It is Angel Bobo who this blog was originally dedicated to back when it began in 2009. Bobo and I shared 18 beautiful years together. He passed in 2007 and I still miss him and think of him EVERY DAY. This photo is from the 1990s.

Now...go and hug YOUR cat!

  3. My mum hugs me every day, and even more so now she doesn't sit in front of the computer every day.

  4. It's a lovely photo Caren of you and your Bobo and I'm certainly one of those who thinks every day is a hug day when it comes to our little fur babies. Get lots of EXTRA hugs today from that Cody Boy!

    Love, Pam (and Sam)

  11. I'll be loving on three kitties next week. Angel and Isabella on Wednesday and Miss Lucy the following Monday. Will that do?

    Bobo looked like he was a loving cat. I so know about that missing part and thinking about them every single day.

    Have a purrfect day Cody. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥

    1. There you go!! Oh YES that will work!!!! You lucky lady!! That will be a blast!!!
      Bobo was a loving cat with ME and my ex husband and my current husband...but he was NOT a "people" cat like Cody is. Cody greets everyone who visits and thinks that everyone is here to see him lol. Bobo had a harder life. I found him as a stray when he was about 6 months old. Cody was adopted at 10 weeks and had a cushy life! xoxoxo
