Of course, in THIS house, EVERY day is Hug Your Cat Day, as my spoiled feline will attest. But by all means, everyone with kitties, go and hug your cat at once. And then give the kitty another hug for me.
But the only cats near here are my mom's and the kittens don't like me, moira likes me but she's old so she doesn't like hugs anymore
Sad isn't it? I had snowy but only because a demon familiar possessed her to spend time with me but it left a couple weeks ago so I don't nothing nada
Lemme hug your cat lol
You'd love the place where I volunteer on Sundays. The PetSmart has 9 cats from the oldest local no-kill rescue. A few of them are new arrivals and are shy. But the rest of the kitties LOVE attention and purr their heads off for petting, hugs, brushing, and lap time. And they're all young -- most of them are between 1 and 2 years old -- so they love playing. Along with making sure they've got food and water, and their cages are clean, I make sure that everyone who wants to come out has some time to exercise, play, interact with other kitties if they want, etc.
Is there a PetSmart or PetCo near you? I know PetSmart has adoptable cats from local rescues, I think PetCo does the same, but I don't live near one so I'm not sure. If anyone here does frequent a PetCo, maybe they can chime in.
You might be able to volunteer right AT a local rescue, too, if that'd be an easier commute for you. You'd be doing good work for pets in need, either way.
Unfortunately I can't have a pet of my own I'm asthmatic but there's a petsmart nearby but they won't let anyone actually cuddle the cats or anything you even have to use sanitizer before even petting one through the cage unless maybe adopting one they'll let you. They're very strict
