4 June – Hug Your Cat Day


Hug Your Cat Day - Elizabeth Place

It’s Hug Your Cat Day! Show your purring, cuddly friend some love today in honour of the occasion.

In Ancient Egypt, cats were revered and even worshipped as symbols of grace and poise. Hug Your Cat Day is the perfect opportunity to put your cat on a pedestal and thank her for all those times she has curled up next to you after a long day.

Did you know that showing your furry friend some affection is actually healthy for you? Studies have shown that hugs from animals can lower blood pressure and decrease stress.

To celebrate Hug Your Cat Day, give your cat a nice big hug and, while you’re at it, throw in some grooming and a little catnip too!
