Good Morning! It's going to be another hot, sunny day so I've slipped into a sundress and will take myself outside to do some more weeding before reading a book or knitting in the shade. Grass mites will not appear for another few weeks so I'm going to try to improve my skin colour now! Grey is never flattering but I'm hoping to get a light tan.
Today is "National Hug Your Cat Day!" I didn't need a TCS Newsletter to inform me that hugging is not necessarily something a cat enjoys.
Emily could perhaps tolerate a gentle hug when she's alert and in a good mood but I'm not going to risk another viscious attack. Her remaining 3 teeth can still do quite a bit of damage.
A short, slow hug doesn't upset Woolly Bear or Katy but I have to "feel" whether they are suddenly going to panic. I can't hug Mogi - I have to be happy that she lies on me heavily when I'm asleep but will immediately disappear when I move or try to stroke her. So, as with the ferals, no hugs for her!
Can you hug your cats?
If so, do you think they enjoy a hug?
If you think they'll be happy, please give them a hug from me!
