Today's Reason to Celebrate

June 4, 2010 was
National Hug Your Cat Day

It’s National Hug Your Cat Day! Show your purring, cuddly friend some love today in honor of the occasion.

In Ancient Egypt, cats were revered and even worshipped as symbols of grace and poise. National Hug Your Cat Day is the perfect opportunity to put your cat on a pedestal and thank her for all those times she has curled up next to you after a long day.

Did you know that showing your furry friend some affection is actually healthy for you? Studies have shown that hugs from animals can lower blood pressure and decrease stress. So go ahead, give your cat a nice big hug, and while you’re at it, throw in some grooming and a little catnip too!
