June 4 is National Hug-Your-Cat Day

We couldn't find out exactly how or why June 4 came to be National Hug-Your-Cat-Day but, let's face it, we'll use any excuse to give our kitties a double dose of affection, so we at Cuteness have wholeheartedly embraced this fairly new tradition. Something tells me, though, that cat lovers are more into this holiday than cats are. At least most of the cats we've known have viewed hugs as something to be tolerated rather than solicited! Still, we animal lovers just have to get our hugs on, so today is the day to get your kitty cuddle fix. Just be sure not to over-squeeze, please!
