National Hug Your Cat Day

04 Jun

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world!



Today is National Hug Your Cat Day.  Go ahead, give that cat a big, furry, loveable snuggable hug.  They won’t mind – chitter chatter.

If you’re a cat lover, you know the warm feeling you get when you curl up in your favorite spot and your cat let’s you stroke them and cuddle with them.  It’s relaxing for both you and the feline.  Most cats are so independent that they will only allow a brief time of bonding before they saunter away.  If your furry friend allows you to hold them to your hearts content, you are truly lucky.

So, remember to give your furball extra hugs today and enjoy their company.  I think I overheard Bacon in the living room right now trying to give the purr things at the Hotel Thompson some extra hugs.  I don’t think it’s going well for the little man – chitter chatter – HA.

      I will tell you Fozzie – the hugging of Mouse Girl went okay… she was hesitant at first but gave in to my hug. Now the hug to that Fear Factor cat we like to call Hemi – snorts. Not so much. Can you believe when I hugged him he whacked me on my butt with that big paw of his. XOXO – Bacon

      I know! I need to ask Journalist Rocky the Squirrel that and see what he says. Hold on… off to ask.

      OMP (oh my pig!) You’re not going to believe this. January 21st was National Squirrel Appreciation Day. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      You may have missed Squirrel Appreciation Day, but October is Squirrel Awareness Month. You can hug squirrels for 31 straight days… so long as it’s not a hug with your teeth! 🙂

      • PigLove

        06/04/2014 at 11:01 am

        Snorts!! At last – this is great information. I’m sure we would *all* like to hug Rocky in our own little way – double snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      • easyweimaraner

        06/04/2014 at 11:15 am

        hahaha I will hug them, of course . I never saw one for real, no idea where they are… we haven’t seen them for years here… probably they emigrated to U.S. (wise decision)

    06/04/2014 at 10:49 am

    Ummm, Rocky, my friend! It’s usually not a good idea for squirrels to go up and hug cats. Just some good advice for you… I’d like to make sure you live to write another column!

    • PigLove

      06/04/2014 at 11:01 am

      Snorticles. I’ll have to explain that to Rocky. That just may be important information. I don’t want to lose my journalist – snorts. Thanks pal!! XOXO – Bacon
