Today Is Hug Your Cat Day!
Okay so calling all cat luvers. I am a day late with this announcement. Apparently Hug Your Cat Day is June 5th and today is the 6th.
But, cats are so huggable, I think we can extend it an extra day don’t you?
This is one of my favorite Saturday Night Live skits about cats:
But, I will be forever partial to Toonces the driving cat. Who remembers Toonces from the 80’s?
I have two cats, technically three but one won’t come in the house. It’s a long story. I don’t think that qualifies me as crazy cat lady material yet but perhaps I’m an aspiring crazy cat lady?
I have a boy cat named Blue and a girl cat named Little Sister. She started out life as Montechio but we learned she wasn’t a Latina as we first thought. And she prefers the name Little Sister. She’s reticent so I don’t have any great shots of her but here is Blue: also known as Bluest, Mr. Blue, Bluebird, Blueman Group and simply Blue Baby.
Some might say he’s a bit of a bully because if he sees something Little Sister has in her bowl that he wants, he simply puts his paw on it and pulls the dish away. He’s done that with the 140-pound blonde Labrador’s treats too. His mother says Blue is a growing boy and needs to build muscles for catching mousies.
How many cats do you have?
How many cats have you owned in your lifetime?
