National Hug Your Cat Day

It’s National Hug Your Cat Day! There better be a cat around here who wants a hug!

Cynthia is chasing Marcy around the house.

Cynthia:  C’mon, Marcy! Let me give you a hug!

Marcy:  No.

Marcy runs around the table in circles with Cynthia in hot pursuit.

Cynthia:  It’s National Hug Your Cat Day. Let me hug you.

Marcy:  No.

Marcy sidesteps Cynthia and slips under the sofa.

Cynthia:  Boo. I want a hug.

Marcy (from under the sofa):  Too bad. I hate hugs.

Penelope Kitten wanders in.

penelope kitten:  i luv hugs.

Cynthia scoops up Penelope Kitten and gives her a hug and lots of kitty kisses.

penelope kitten:  too much.

Penelope Kitten starts squirming. Cynthia doesn’t notice.

penelope kitten:  gotta go go go.

Penelope Kitten leaps out of Cynthia’s arms leaving her with bright red cat scratches.

Cynthia:  Ouch!

Marcy (from under the sofa):  See. Cats hate hugs.


Happy National Hug Your Cat Day!

Forewarning: Please hug your cat responsibly!

    Yeah….cats don’t seem to love hugs as much as we love giving them. What’s up with that? Cute pic of you and pkitty!

    Awwwwww. What a punk. Don’t animals know we need them to tolerate our suffocating love and hugs? Jazzy is the most tolerant animal, I swear. No contact is too much. It’s terrible in the summer when she wants to snuggle up in bed. She’s like a broiling hot space heater when it’s already 90 degrees outside. Then I’m the one going “too much” and squirming away.

      LOL! We do love our pets soooo much! And they love us back even if they don’t love hugs!! Jazzy sounds like such a sweetheart!

    Poor tortured kitties! 😉 They say that dogs don’t like hugs either but Marcy and Pkitty’s cousin Shwa used to not mind at all. I remember a random pregnant lady hugging him on the street and being so happy that he obliged.

      Awwww… Shwa was such a sweetie-pie. woof woof!
      Way to make me cry this Friday morning!

    You know, it’s also National Donut Day.
    After witnessing your experience, I think I might be safer cuddling with a cruller.
    And I’m NOT sharing with the cat!

      Mmmm… crullers…

      i don’t want one anyway.

    It’s been proven that hugging a pet will lower the blood pressure of the human hugger but what happens to the blood pressure of the reluctant feline/canine huggee? Hope PETA doesn’t look into this. Hugging might be outlawed.

      it should be. good idea. i’m going to contact the authorities.

    Haha, oh my family’s dog Tao was exactly like a cat in that respect. He’d start snarling if you were carefully petting him and he decided he’d had enough. And getting picked up and hugged? Forget about it. So I get where you’re coming from! We just want a hug, we’re only human!

    At least Penelope Kitten let you hug her a little bit. She’s so cute – you know she’s my fave! #blackcatshug

    What about The Boys, were they up for hugs?

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch June 7, 2015 at 2:37 am

      Hamlet GIVES hugs. That’s why we kept him. How do you find a home for a stray cat that actually and truly hugs you?! It cannot be done. LOL
      Scooter would rip me apart and not feel at all bad about it. I refrain when it comes to Scooter since I know what’s good for me. LOL again!

    My cats love hugs. Which is good because I love giving them hugs.

      Ahhhh… you are sooo lucky! Most cats hate ’em!
