It's Hug Your Cat Day! Beware Of Scratches And Bites
June is the month of the year when we celebrate one of the most straightforward holidays, Hug Your Cat Day.
It's an unofficial holiday that encourages cat owners to show a bit of extra love to their furry feline babies and give them a big, big hug. For us, "crazy cat people," hug your cat day is every day, right? But it's a lovely reminder to appreciate our way too early, living alarm clocks.
If you are not one of the lucky ones, and your cat doesn't love to cuddle or hug, then beware of their sharp claws and teeth. If you are one of the lucky ones, enjoy every moment of it.
Let's not forget that hugging a cat is believed to be beneficial to our health. What's more, according to studies, cat purring helps reduce stress levels and makes us feel calmer.
If you don't have a cute long, straight tail and pointy ears by your bedside, don't worry, you can hug a friend's cat. Or if you want a cat and you know you can take good care of her or him, you can adopt a kitty in need. Hug your cat day is a perfect occasion to bring some purring into your life - and lots of hugs.
