Let’s Celebrate Do NOT Hug Your Cat Day!

Get your grimy talons off me!

Unhand me, you scoundrel! No hugging today!

No human cooties!

And no kissing either!

I know a bunch of you kitties aren’t into the hugging thing, so let’s turn this day on its ear and have Do NOT Hug Your Cat Day! Here are some feline-friendly activities humans can do instead of hugging us cats; pick your favorites and give the list to your humans.

  • Petting
  • Chin skritching
  • Brushing
  • Butt whapping (confess — I know some of you out there love this!)
  • Treat giving
  • Open-window Bird TV
  • Playtime!
  • Just plain leave you alone for the day

Got any other things you would rather your human do instead of (ugh) hugging you? Tell me in the comments!

    I have had enough with going to the vet today for booster jabs and am not keen on anyone else touching me even if it’s a hug.

    I agree with the no hug idea.

    Even though some of us don’t like hugs, we still all lined up to get one each from Mom and Dad. Even, Lisbeth, who only likes butt scritches. We figure that we can humor the humans one day a year. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

    Hi Sparkle, This is Meowma. The reason that we hug and kiss our kitties is because you are all just so adorable and sweet. We can’t resist. It is impossible for us to fight the urge when ever we see those cute little fur faces and those cuddly little bodies. So please indulge us this one minor flaw. It is not our fault.
