Adorable Ways to Celebrate Hug Your Cat Day

Did you know that June 4th is Hug Your Cat Day? While we think that kitties should be hugged every day, this is a great time to show Fluffy some extra TLC. In fact, why stop at just hugging your cat? Read on for some great suggestions from a Glendale, AZ veterinarian on how to make this cute occasion extra special for your feline friend.


Does your feline friend enjoy being hugged? Take some adorable pictures of Fluffy cuddling up to her favorite people. If your kitty has a few cute or quirky habits, try to capture them on video.


Offering your feline friend a special snack is a wonderful way to make her feel loved and happy. Cats can enjoy some small bits of deli meat, or canned tuna, salmon, or chicken. Cooked, boneless chicken or turkey is also a good option. We know, some cats love junk food, but don’t overindulge your furball. Fatty treats and snacks are just as bad for Fluffy as they are for us!


Cats are rather sleepy little furballs. Fluffy can spend a whopping 20 hours a day snoozing! Giving your drowsy feline a comfy new bed is another great way to activate the purr. You can buy your kitty a new bed, but you can also make one. Upcycle an old sweater, and turn it into a pet bed by putting stuffing in the sleeves and torso and sewing it all together into an oval shape. Or, just put a soft, folded blanket in a box or wicker basket.


Playing is very beneficial for cats, both mentally and physically. Indulge your cute pet with a fun play session. Spend a few minutes controlling that laser pointer or dangly feather toy, and let your frisky feline pounce and jump to her little heart’s delight. In fact, why not pick up a new ball or catnip mouse for Fluffy to bat under the sofa?


Some of our feline friends are quite the little cuddlebugs. Let Fluffy snuggle up on your lap as you’re unwinding at the end of the day. There are few things more precious than the purr of an affectionate kitty!
