Hug Your Cat Day

Today is "Hug Your Cat Day."  Mom Paula doesn't need a special day to hug us because we get hugs every day, all day long!  Our dream would be that every kitty gets that special hug from their human each and every day.

Brulee doesn't always let Mom Paula hold her and hug her.  She is a squirmy little thing and only wants to be loved on her terms.  Brulee tends to be very loving when Mom Paula is in the bed.  She'll snuggle up next to Mom Paula and even climb on her lap for kisses, hugs, and grooming.  This picture was a rare occurrence   Notice the look on Brulee's face!

Truffle loves to be hugged and will even let Mom Paula hold her like a baby and snuggle for long periods of time.  The very first time Mom Paula saw Truffle at 7 weeks of age and picked her up, Truffle fell asleep (on her back) in Mom Paula's arms.  It was love at first sight.

None of us are huggers. Ichiro is a little bit but I am definitely not. And Gemini only likes hugging on her terms.

No hugging at my house, please! If you think Brulee looks less than thrilled, you should see me.

Some of us are huggers...momma Elllie, Ginger...oh they love their hugs! Me, I gotta be in the mood. All the rest of us like our pets and stuff but hugging is too over the top.

Those are such great pictures of all of you. Love the expressions on Brulee's face and Truffle's face too. Truffle looks so happy. Hope all of you have a great day.

Hannah and Lucy said...

It looked like Brulee was thinking "hurry up and put me down".
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Happy Hug Your Cat Day! We hope you all get lots of hugs...though we bet Brulee doesn't hope so. :)

Laila and Minchie said...

Such sweet hugging pictures! Mom Peggy wants Mom Paula to give you two hugs from her today.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We love the look on Brulee's face -- rather like the look angel Annie would get, when picked up. Ha. She hated it, but was very loving on her own terms, though.

Nicki doesn't like to be picked up and cuddled or kissed, but he LOVES it when the human gets down so he can head-butt her and she can give him scritches. Derry, like Truffle, simply adores being picked up and carried and cuddled. :-)

So sweet!!!!!!!
I love these photos!

What great hugging photos. We don't allow hugging, but our head peep likes to see that others are getting good cat hugs.

HH and The Boys said...

Wonderful pictures of all those hugs.... We're going back and put up our hugging sign too so HH will know it's Hug Your Cat Day.

Have a great day.

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Brian said...

Happy hug day pretty girls, today and every day!

Margaret said...

I think every day should be HUGS Day!
(Although I absolutely hate being picked up!?!?!)

I'm more like Brulee but I let Pop pick me up and hug me for like a half hour this morning. TW is lucky she can touch me let alone hug me. Ugh.

Flynn said...

Mum gives me lots of hugs and kisses every day too. You both look very huggable even if Brulee does look less than thrilled.

Kitties Blue said...

We found about this hug day thing just a little while ago when we were visiting Brian and all his meowmates, and though some of us really don't like hugs, we all lined up immediately to get at least one. Giulietta lets Dad carry her around like a baby. We always heard that cats hate this. But there is always an exception to every rule. We love your photos; even though, Brûlée has a great stink-eye going. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Well done girls on completing successful hugs! I let mum hug me …. once!!! ;)

Caren Gittleman said...

Mom doesn't need a special day to hug me either, she hugs me EVERY DAY! Love, Cody

Derby, Ducky said...

Derby isn't much of a huggy cat either, Ducky the hugs and snuggle guy.

Sweet Purrfections said...

We see Jackson Galaxy telling people that kitties don't like being carried around like babies, but Truffle loves it.

Marilynn said...

Grace & Company get hugs all the time, too ... day, night, noon, whenever! They manage to be polite about it, and sometimes they even like it!! Oh, well ... the hugging will not stop!
