Hug Your Cat Day – June 4
Hug Your Cat Day is one of those pleasingly straightforward holidays. The intention is not for the day to be complicated or overthought. Quite simply, it is a day in which cat owners everywhere are encouraged to hug their cats.
It’s an opportunity to give back to all the cats in the world and shower them with love and attention.
The more dedicated amongst them will not need this encouragement, of course, but it is always good to be reminded of our feline friends.
While a cat owner may love his or her cat immensely, it’s easy to forget to show a furry friend how much love there is to go around when managing a busy schedule and family. It’s best to start by petting the cat softly and having it warm up before going in for a hug. Be gentle and approachable, so the cat is more likely to welcome the embrace.
The obvious downside to the day is that people without cats may be left out. This need not be the case; however – it should be straightforward enough to simply adapt it into “Hug Someone Else’s Cat Day.”
It should be easy to find a friend or family member with a cat and give their pet a huge embrace to show the animal some additional love on this day.
Be glad to know that someone who suffers from allergies need not be left out either. These people can watch cute and funny cat videos on YouTube as a way to participate in the festivities.
