Monday is normally the day to post Sparks. As I had a product review yesterday, I saved the Spark to share today—Hug Your Cat Day!

Not all cats enjoy being hugged. I suggest you approach your cat with caution the first time you try a hug. Some of Kitties Blue I would never try to hug. They would totally freak out, and I would be sporting some bloody wounds.

At least one of Kitties Blue is not opposed to getting hugs. Can you guess who?




Did you guess Mau?

Today’s Spark may refer to people, but I think it is just as appropriate for kitties.

If you are not a fan of the comics, you may not be familiar with the author of today’s quote. William Aloysius Keane (Bil Keane) was an American cartoonist who passed away in 2011. He was best down for his work on the newspaper comic, The Family Circus. It began in 1960 and continues in syndication. It is now drawn by his son, Jeff Keane.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.

Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

None of us here are partial to hugs…at least nome of the 4-leggers…but there were a few kitties in the past who did not mind.
Petcretary had to be at her job on Monday so she entirely missed that day…but um…she hugged lots of peeps that she takes care of:)

I’m sending hugs to all your kitties that like hugs. Those that don’t don’t even try. I get that approach with caution.

Have a purrfect Hug Your Cat Day. Big hug to you. ♥

The PO’M is the hugger in the family, while Manny comes in second. Angel has learned over her 15 years that it’s gonna happen anyhow, so she tolerates for awhile. Chili Bruce squirms like crazy, so I usually pet him while he’s got four paws on the ground…or when he’s napping (hehehe!). Sweetie…well, Sweetie is more feral than all, but I’m managed to give her a few quick kisses on her noggin, and none of my blood was spilled!

I always get a good hug when I jump up on momma’s lap. She wraps her arms around all of me and holds me firmly enough that I know mommy is hugging me and I will purr for her every time. But she only holds me like 10 seconds.

Mau looking at you I just might allow some hugs. Might

Allie wishes SHE was part of that hug!!

All our cats like hugs but Floki mostly only likes them first thing in the morning. I was hugging Frankie just before seeing your post. Now he is sleeping on my lap.

Mau’s such a cuddle bug. For some reason, I think MM is one of the cats you wouldn’t try to hug. Odd that they are so different!
