Lisa’s Logic: Prepare to Hug Kitty
Coming up next Friday, that's the 27th, it is Hug Your Cat Day, according to brownielocks.com. It is on the last Friday of May.
What's funny, when I clicked on the link they give you suggestions to watch out for the claws. Now some cats may not like to be hugged. It does not have to be a "One Mississippi, Two Mississippi" kind of hug. It could just be a one.
Maybe as you see them curled in a ball, just go up to them and give them a quick hug by placing your hands around them and lay your head down for just a second and done.
My kitties, George and Zeke, don't mind being hugged. Sometimes as they are walking, or should I say pacing, around the kitchen waiting to be fed, I will bend down and pick them up by just the front so that their back feet are still touching the floor and give a hug, then give the other one a hug. Equal hugs.
I remember babysitting a friend's younger brother and they had a cat that DID NOT like its back touched. This made me a little nervous. But as I was sitting quietly in a comfy chair, the kitty sat beside me. I absently was petting him and that included its back. Now I know that isn't a hug but he did not seem to mind, there was not any hissing or scratching on anyone's mind. I thought that was cool.
Hug kitty gently.
