Sunday is Hug Your Cat Day. Now that’s a no-brainer. If your household is like mine, your cats get hugged regularly, whether they want a hug or not, right?
I’ve found that there are different ways to hug a cat–especially one that doesn’t want to be hugged. I often hug Lily and Sophie, simply by placing my hands over their bodies and gently pressing a couple of times. I think petting is a type of hug–at least it’s certainly acceptable as far as most cats are concerned. But our cats seem to like to be scratched behind the ear and around the neck.
Does your cat hug you? I consider it a hug when Lily rubs against my ankles or when she’s in my lap and she butts her head against me or presses her face into the crook of my elbow. Yes, there’s many types of kitty hugs.

While you’re at it, please share selfies with you and your cat on Hug Your Cat Day. I’m sharing one of my favorite pictures of a granddaughter hugging Lily on the day they first met. With diligent overseeing and mentoring, she learned the best way to hold a kitten and, as they both grew, a cat. And the two of them became fast friends.
