National Hug Your Cat Day

National Hug Your Cat Day is a fun holiday, most likely invented by a person who loves their cat very much. Our furry friends really mean a lot in our lives. They love and need us. And it is so nice to hug and show them love. Do it as often as possible.


The holiday’s founder is unknown, and few people are interested in its origin. Look at your cat. Maybe it wants to scratch the sofa, an armchair, throw a vase off the table, or get your shoes dirty? Your hugs can stop your pet from these harmful actions. Cats require our affection, care, and love. Receiving these, they will show love and understanding, too.

People think cats aren’t capable of a noticeable manifestation of love. But it only seems that way. If they sit next to you, spend time with you, purr and snuggle, it is an actual manifestation of cat love. They will not jump like dogs. Cats are graceful and regal pets. People celebrating National Hug Your Cat Day try to please their fluffy pet: buying delicious food, a new toy, or a grooming brush.
