It's National Hug Your Cat Day!
What does a hug do for you? Does it automatically make you smile? Create that warm fuzzy feeling inside? Does it calm your insides? Of course it does! A recent study shows that hugging increases a level of oxytocin and decreases blood pressure! So snuggle away!! National hug your cat day should be everyday, in my opinion. Not only do they make you feel better, but they promote good health also! Hugs have been a great slogan for young kids for as long as I can remember!!
I’d like to introduce you to my furry friends!! This is Zeke. Zeke is a 22# Tabby cat that I adopted 5 years ago here in Chicago at The Anti Cruelty Society. Zeke has lived in Naples FL and Portland OR. He enjoys dry cat nip over fresh, closets, organic dry veggie mix food (no wet food), and the occasional hug and go. He’s more of a drive by hugger.
And this is my snuggle bunny LP! She is ALL about the kisses, snuggles, and biscuit making. You can’t get past LP without a hug and a kitty kiss (rub noses). She is a 9# half Siamese cat that I adapted in Naples FL. Man does she love snow!! When LP isn’t hiding under the blankets or playing in the bath tub, she is screaming for her hugs! Extra today of course.
Whether you like to embrace, bear hug, bunny hug, clasp, clinch, lock, squeeze or cuddle with your fury little gato, we encourage you to do so a little bit more today. This holiday benefits both parties involved!!
And of course one of our most favortiest videos ever here at Native Foods Cafe (I know, I know... we've posted it before): Kittens Inspired by Kittens!
