Did You Celebrate 'Hug Your Cat' Day? Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

June 4 is "Hug Your Cat Day", it`s nice that there`s a holiday set aside specifically for hugging your cat. Although those of us who own felines tend to hug and kiss them every day.

I have two cats, Ebony and Tico, the latter is a 22-pound giant fur ball who craves love and attention. Tico jumps on my lap when I`m watching TV, and cuddles right next to me when I`m taking a nap. I don`t advocate overfeeding your feline, I adopted Tico from the Humane Society a month ago, and I am not responsible for his considerable girth.

Ebony is more aloof and independent, but that only makes me want to squeeze and hug her as much as I do Tico.

Since cat lovers hug their cats every day, we need to do something special for them on "Hug Your Cat Day. "

Here`s some ideas:

PLAY WITH YOUR CAT

Wave almost anything in front of your furry angel and she will paw at it.

MICROCHIP YOUR CAT

If you love your furry friend you won`t mind spending a few bucks to microchip her. If she ever gets lost, in will dramatically increase your chances of getting her back.

FIX YOUR CAT

For goodness sake spay or neuter your cat, don`t add to the overpopulation problem.

ADOPT A CAT

You can`t very well participate in "Hug Your Cat Day" if you don`t own one. Visit your local animal shelter, and adopt a friend who will give you a lifetime of love.
