    Whether you're a cat owner or you're your cat's Human, today is National Hug Your Cat Day :cheer2: :cat: :cheer2: . Fix your furry family member a feline feast, entertain him or her with a new toy, treat your precious darling with lots of love, scritching, scratching, and as many hugs as possible.

    (As if we they don't bestow upon us the privilege to demand that we spoil them rotten and shower them with love on a daily basis. :rofl: )

    ....I wonder if Hallmark has a card for this. :lol:

    Incidentally, June is Adopt a Cat Month, so if your missing out on the joy of being a feline's Person, today's the perfect time to change that!!

    So that's why Emily was meowing at me so insistently this morning, even after she had been fed! I will have to make it up to her when I get home tonight (her favorite catnip starfish has gone missing for about a week, so I will have to find it or get out the reserve catnip mouse).

    Thanks for the heads up Cyn. I'm sure all the FSU :cat: :cat: will appreciate it. :)

    Everyday is Hug Your Cat Day in my house. Sometimes she gets mad at me because I hug her too much.

    Heh. I've already been hugging the neighbors' cats today. :D They're left to wander every day, so they like to come over here and be fussed over.

    My 2-year old cat hates being held. Think I'll substitute treats instead!

    Awww!!! I'll give my Eeshi an extra ten hugs today and make a trip to my parent's to hug their cats. Since I am vegan, I will give the smoked king salmon my parents always give me to my precious little girl.

    While the garden kitty appreciates hugs, he's let me know he'd also like to celebrate with treats.

    You can hug my Harvey any time. He's a pretty sweet fellow, and has been a great add to my home.

    Miss Peanut is not the most affectionate kitten (she will let me pick her up long enough to kiss her nose, but will tolerate no more), but she is currently curled up on my lap. A very rare occurrence. And I have to leave shortly. I will be sure to hug her. :D

    Finley, on other hand, loves to be picked up and will hug you back. It would be the 17 pound cat that likes to be carried....

    Leo will hug me back sometimes when he's sitting on my lap and I'm hugging him. He's 14 lbs so when he sits on my lap I kind of have to hug him.:lol: Callie is much daintier at 8 lbs and she doesn't mind being held but she's not crazy about hugging, LOL. Still I will give them both extra love today.

    Leo is currently occupied with chasing a fly that somehow got in the house.... oh dear, this is not going to end well.

    I hug my cat all the time! Haha. She is sitting next to me purring away. She can't stand being away from me or Mr Lanie. She's one codependent kitteh. I need to tell my dad about Hug Your Cat Day so he hugs my kitteh who lives with them...

    Have hugged all 4 cats today. Have also had to sit with my senior citizen Buster who gets to eat a renal diet. He does not like it so you have to cheer him on.

    I like this day.

    BTW - apparently it is also International Whore's Day (for prostitutes).

    Well I hugged our cat(Mo) and the two cats we are cat-sitting (Fat Cat and Little Cat--they have real names but the descriptors work better),

    Little Cat had gotten out of the house and had disappeared for 5 days. We were calling shelters and patrolling the roads looking for roadkill when she poof out of the blue turned up at the back door hungry and grumpy. She got hugged anyway.

    My elderly Kit Kat is not a hugg-ee. Her thing is to dominate her humans, command our attention at will, and sit on top of us whenever she wants, with a few head pets and ear scratches.

    This is many times a day - puss is appalled at the idea that there would be a National Hug Your Cat Day because it gives humans some control over their humans and suggests that we can ignore them all the other days of the year.
