Pamper Your Kitty on Hug Your Cat Day

If there’s one thing we know about cats, it’s that they are very huggable. In fact, kitties are so huggable that there is now an official Hug Your Cat Day, which is coming up June 4th. While we strongly believe that kitties should be hugged every day, this is definitely a great time to show your feline buddy some extra TLC. In addition to giving your kitty some extra hugs, why not pamper Fluffy a little bit? Below, a local Livonia, MI vet offers some fun ways to make this day special for your pet.


Offer your feline friend a special treat. Some canned tuna or salmon would be a good choice. You can also give Fluffy sliced deli meat, or some cooked boneless chicken, beef, or fish.


Playing is not only fun for Fluffy, it’s also great for her health and well-being. Even spending just a few minutes batting at that feather toy or pushing a catnip mouse under the couch will benefit her. Indulge your cat with a fun, vigorous play session.


Cats usually don’t have too much difficulty getting comfortable on sofas and chairs, but they do like to have some things of their own. If Fluffy doesn’t have a cat tower, this is a great time to get her one. You can also give your furry friend a little pet tent or tipi.


Kitties certainly do love their beauty rest. Fluffy could spend up to 20 hours a day sleeping. Give your furball a comfy new bed to cuddle up in. It doesn’t matter if she already has one: cats can never have too many napping spots!


Our feline friends are very clean, and put quite a bit of effort into keeping their fur soft and shiny. Give your cat a helping hand by brushing her gently. Just be sure to let Fluffy go when she’s had enough.


As the day winds down, settle in with Fluffy and a good book or movie. Even if your furball isn’t the super-cuddly type, she’ll likely enjoy just being in the room with you. On the other hand, if your kitty is affectionate, indulge her. You’ll likely have that little motor going in no time!
