Today is National Hug Your Cat Day. So, cat owners, make sure to give your beloved feline an extra hug this evening. I did some research on National Hug Your Cat Day and this is what I found.

Why was this holiday created?

We think this holiday was created for the benefit of both the animal and the person. Hugs lead to happiness and happiness lead to well being and well being leads to a longer healthier life for both!

Origin of this Holiday

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We did however find that this holiday has been celebrated for years. There is plenty of documentation to support that this holiday does indeed exist and this holiday is celebrated World Wide.

I'm sure there are plenty of cats and other pets at the Larimer Humane Society that would love a home and a hug.
