Hug Your Cat Day 2017
Sunday, June 4th is Hug Your Cat Day! Now of course we all know that EVERY day is Hug Your Cat Day, but this is the day we get to officially celebrate it! We are posting about it a couple days early, but we just like getting the party started sooner.
This year we had several submissions from Sophie’s CH kitty friends and some of our blogging friends, which is awesome! Thanks to everyone for sending us your photos. LOTS of love here. Let’s dive in!
Alexandra (Wobbly Kitty) and Pussi
Alexandra has cerebellar hypoplasia like our Sophie girl. She hasn’t let that get in her way though! After living in a shelter for 9 months, Mom Viktoria came along and adopted her. It was last March that Alexandra found her forever home, and she has since learned to walk without falling, run, and jump onto their chair. We love hearing stories like this about wobbly kitties. You go, Alexandra!
Alexandra also shares her home with another kitty, Pussi. Mom Viktoria says that Pussi is Alexandra’s assistant, coach and girlfriend. It sounds like Alexandra and Pussi are a couple of lucky kitties! Oh, and they live in Russia too – pretty cool!
This adorable girl is Mitzy! She is also a fellow wobbly kitty. In this photo, Mitzy is getting a hug from Mom Joanne. We can see the love shining through and are so happy that Mitzy has such a wonderful home.
This handsome fella is Gilbert! He is a CH buddy of Sophie’s. Isn’t he a cutie? We just love this picture of him and his Mom Renee <3
This is a very special photo of Twitch and his Mom Tersha. Twitch crossed over the Rainbow Bridge last year unfortunately. He had severe cerebellar hypoplasia. Mom Tersha says that he was an amazing cat and she misses him every day. You can just see the love they shared emanating from this photo. SO sweet <3
Truffle and Brulee
Truffle and Brulee are two beautiful Persian kitties who share their home with Mom Paula. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting Mom Paula in person a few times, and we have to say that we absolutely love her! We hope that one day we get to meet Truffle and Brulee too.
You can see more of these girls over on their blog, Sweet Purrfections.
Joanie & Sammy
Joanie and Sammy are also fellow blogging kitties. Their house is full of love of love and fun! You can see for yourself over on their blog, 15 and Meowing.
The KCC Gang
I must admit that I shower my kitties with love and hugs and kisses every day. They definitely don’t want for attention! One of my favorite photos of us together is one from a few years ago – from our original Hug Your Cat Day post. I have tried to recreate this photo every year since but have been unsuccessful. It’s especially hard to recreate now too since we have more kitties than when this photo was taken 🙂 It’s a fun one though!
Happy Hug Your Cat Day, everyone. We hope you all shower your kitties with extra lovin’ and attention!
