National Hug Your Cat Day

National Hug Your Cat Day

04 June 2016

Hello everyone!!

Did you all know on June 4th, TODAY, it is Hug Your Cat Day. Quite simply, it is a day in which cat owners everywhere are encouraged to hug their cats. The more dedicated amongst them will not need this encouragement, of course, but it is always good to be reminded of our feline friends.

In Ancient Egypt, cats were sacred and worshipped as symbols of grace and poise. National Hug Your Cat Day is the ‘purrfect’ opportunity to put your kitty on a pedestal and thank them for all those times they curl up next to you after a busy day.

Here is what to do:

  • Hug your cat. If they refuse to hug you back, don't beupdet. They will show you love some other way. Forgive them for refusing to cuddle with you and instead treat them to a dreamie or two...
  • If you don’t have a cat, but always wanted to have one, maybe today is the day to adopt one from an animal shelter......there are always plenty of cats looking for new homes!!
