Hug Your Cat Day

Monday, June 04, 2012

emoticon Hug Your Cat Day emoticon

When : June 4th

Today is Hug Your Cat Day. Go ahead and give your cat a big, furry hug.

Cat lovers can really get into this day. If you're a cat lover, you can really appreciate the warm, cozy feeling you get when you curl up on a couch or chair, and hug your cat. The only problem is, your cat will most likely only allow a brief hug before sauntering away. If your cat is a true hugger, count your blessings.

Dog lovers...sorry, but hugging your dog will not suffice. If you are going to be "into" this day, you simply must hug a cat...your cat.

You don't have a cat? You can correct this today. The month of June is "Adopt a Cat Month".

The Origin of Hug Your Cat Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We did extensive research, as there are several dates referenced for this special day. Unfortunately, we found no content or factual information.

Varying sources refer to this day on a number of dates in both May and June. June 4th is the most commonly noted date. In addition, June is National Adopt a Cat Month. So, it seems more logical to celebrate this day in June (rather than May)

    Thank you Alan. I am a cat person. My Ginger is a calico with attitude and Gibson is a big Maincoon 21 lbs. Gibson is long grey for and everytime I hug him a get a mouthfull of fur. A friend gave me a pillow that says, "NO OUTFIT IS COMPLETE WITHOUT CAT HAIR." I really believe that.
Thank you again, Ginger and Gibson also sleep with me on the bed. I just love that.

    I hug my cats every day. One loves it to death and the other growls a bit. For the one that growls, he never follows through with any aggression so I just continue in my "abuse", only keep it short, to let him know that I care about him and I'm the alpha cat. He's gotten much better about it, so maybe in a few more years he'll learn to love it. emoticon

    I'm a cat person with allergies so I had to give my cats away! I'll have to find one to hug. If not I'm thinking of them!
