Hugging! A grossly overrated activity!


Today is "Hug your Cat" Day

 This is the super sweet picture the Staff uses for her facebook profile  
The hugger and huggee in purrfect union. Ahhhh!


 This is the very next picture in the sequence.
The hugger and huggee are having a bit of a wrassle


 And this is several more along. 
The huggee is becoming rather peeved.

Next scene (unrecorded) shows hugger and huggee separately reorganising their dishevelled furs. The hugger, with the help of TCP and a band aid. The huggee, UTB.

So number one is as good as it gets.

Happy Hug Your Cat Day!

=^,,^=


Austin thought 'I'm  a bit of a mug
To allow myself be given a hug'.
So he fought very hard,
He punched and he sparred,
It turns out he's a bit of a thug!

  1. That first photo is sooo sweet!! You must be one of those kitties who just wants a short hug. Carmine and Jewel are like that, too. It makes the humans appreciate the hugs that much more!

  3. OH Austin, if you only knew how hard my mom is laughing! She loved this, pictures and story! She will be smiling...well, laughing really, at this for the rest of the week. Not that mom doesn't feel sympathy for your mom...she does, but it's still funny. You obviously do NOT like hugging. End of story... case closed! Finis.

  4. Oh no..mom has to finish her makeup before she goes out but her eyelashes are wet from her eyes leaking laughing. Not AT you both of course..simply, well...not with you either. Let's just say she is laughing. Hard. xxoox

  5. Glad you enjoyed!! :))) Of course, if I thought you were laughing AT me Katie Isabella, I would be very upset ;) MOL

    PeeEss The Staff changed the last line of the limerick. She's got it in for me I think!!

  7. LOL this sequence looks very familiar. Nate thinks Hug Your Cat Day is the worst day of the year and he wonders if anyone asked cats if they wanted such a day created. :D

  8. Now Austin, you are NOT a bit of a thug but your mum may have caught you after you and Spitty had been for a little brewski. Then, a mancat's thoughts turn to anything but hugging. Wait..that may be untrue. Heeeee.

  9. Those pictures are so terrific. That is what would happen around here except we would never allow anyone to pick us up. Those hugs are so overrated. Have great day.

  10. We are a bit like you Austin although we don't mind cuddles from Mum but anyone else really ought to be warned to wear gloves!

  11. Let's just concentrate on that first sweet photograph (although the series is funny!).
    Happy Wednesday with or without hugs.

  12. Tee, hee! We bet she hasn't tried THAT again! MMM doesn't like hugs but the rest of us can be bribed if they come with scritches.

  18. Funny pics! Not so funny for the hugger though!

    I enjoy hugs from my mum a lot, but sometimes I like to be left alone. It's normal.

  22. Austin reminds me of my Raven though I think Raven likes being hugged far less - the entire time being held she'll have her head and neck straining away from you and mewing to be let down. But she does love laying on tables and such right close to me and laying on my bed at night.

  26. Well Austin, #1 is a great shot and if we didn't know what happened AFTER #1 we'd think you two just walked around hugging and talking and snuggling for HOURS! HAHAHA Anyway, I love that photo of you and your Mom and I hope she managed to squeeze in another hug today for the occasion!

    Hugs, Sammy

  27. Moms need to learn to swoop in for a one-and-done. Some cats need VERY BRIEF hugs. Pffft.

  30. Bwahaha! Your mum should have stopped at the first photo Austin. A bit of a thug, really?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Aw, Austin, you are such a cutie in your hug with your Mum! But I guess you had to put your paw down for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  32. MOL! We see you gave her one chance to get a good shot, Austin! We're with you...hugging is way overrated!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well Austin, you both get A for effort, but clearly, hugs are not your cup of tea! Heeheehee! :p

  34. Gotta love a thug and I do! She really has your feet in a toe hold. OMC! I start scratching and biting and Pop puts me down VERY quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  35. he he - I'm kinda that way too Austin. I don't mind being held and hugged for a minute, then that's enough - put me down. I guess we have to humor the humans tho to keep them happy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sounds a bit like Greyson and me... He loves his Dad to hold him though... Sigh

  40. Austin...you and mum are so darn cute together. Those extended hugs and become a bit of a pain for the hugger. But then the bandaid proved that. Your poem is very cute. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  41. I would NEVER hug June Buggie. That would be a death wish!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh yes indeedy... Hug Your Cat Day is all well and good and looks great on paper. Reality, however, is quite a different ball of yarn if you know what we mean. Us cats here at Zee and Zoey's would prefer the humans stop with the picking us up and trying to hug us. We set the rules you know... as to how, when, and where the snuggling will occur!

  43. Austin that is one of the funniest Hug postings of all
    Thanks my furend

  44. When ny hoomins first adopted me, I didn 't like hugs. I grew to like them, though. :)

  45. Hugs are great...especially when they are quick!

  47. Austin! As your cinematic counterpart would say, "Be-HAVE!"

    We love the first picture! It's great to be loved ... worshiped ... isn't it?

    Purrz!

  48. Awww , Austin you look so cute in the first picture with your Staff <3

    XOXO

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, sweet Austin you only like wee hugs? We are glad you at least sit still for short ones because the first picture is soooooo sweet. We love hugs around here and it is good we do because Mumsy is a hugger and she wants to hug all the time. You would have to stay UTB if she was where you are because she would be trying to hug on you all the time. Hugs and nose kisses

  50. MOL! Highpaw, Austin, for getting in the last claw-- err, we mean word.

  51. Dear Austin,

    We are happy you've defeated the staff. The battle for hug your cat day has been won. Next time, they should think twice before creating such an absurd day.

    Love,
    The Anti-Staff Society

    Dear Caro,

    Great picture. The super sweet picture deserves a Google plus! Yes, I shared.

    Hugs,
    Haopee
