Today is Hug Your Cat Day!!!!!!!

Graphic by Zoolatry

Yeah right!

Today's the DAY!

It wasn't easy!

In the end.. 

...this was the best we could do.


There was a great deal of tussling and fur flying and threats and bribes.......
....... but in the end she agreed to hug me!

Hehe!!

Apologies for terrible picture but I had my paw on the webcam button and I had to pick the moment when we were both in shot. It lasted about half a picosecond, so there was no time to pretty up and smile and icky stuff like that!!

=^,,^=


hug - to squeeze someone tight. It doesn't have to be mutual, but then it would be awkward, especially if it goes on longer than the socially acceptable time interval of 3.4 seconds.

  14. Katie prefers about 2.7 seconds. Unless it's Waffles doing the hugging. I don't think there's a day of the year for THAT.

  34. Cute hug pic! I'm glad you celebrated the day! Sending you a belated virtual hug. (I kinda prefer the virtual hugs... they're never awkward and never go past that 3.4 second mark!)
