Hug Your Cat Day Friday Flashback

Meows from Mudpie!

Did you know that today is Hug Your Cat Day?

Wait a minute...we celebrate that *everyday* at our house!


Last month Mommy completely forgot Angel Tara's 14th Gotcha Day until it was too late to post anything. In the back of her mind she knew May 20th was a memorable day for some reason but with everything going on with my grandma and grandpa it didn't click until that very afternoon what it was.

So today we decided to do a belated Gotcha Day/Hug Your Cat Day/Flashback Friday post!


This isn't a great picture of Mommy and Tara together but it's the only one she has. It was taken on Christmas Eve 2012 and was a very bittersweet day for Mommy because she knew it would be their last Christmas together. Six months later Tara ran off for the Rainbow Bridge. (Can you see the cute little reindeer antlers she's wearing? I have a feeling they're still around here somewhere waiting to resurface.)

Lots of us kitties don't like being picked up and get really squirmy when forced to submit, but we really should allow it at least once so a good picture can be taken. It ends up meaning the world to our peeps.

So glad you had that special photo of the two of you hugging! These are the best memories. Luckily, Truffle and Brulee don't mind being held too much.

What a sweet memory of your human and Tara. I confess, I can be squirmy when being held by people who don't know me well. My human and my breeder are the only ones who know how to hold me properly!

Mudpie, now you know why I am crazy about storing my photos, because I don't ever want to lose an image of my cats!
