Cat Hug Caturday Art

Today is one of the best days of the year. It's Hug Your Cat Day!

Although every day is Hug Your Cats (and Dog) Day here at our house, my furbabies don't often let me immortalize these moments in photographs. Apparently hugging your mom isn't the cool thing to do these days, let alone photographing it or posting it on your blog.

So, in honor of Hug Your Cat Day, as well as to celebrate the always fun Caturday Art blog hop hosted by the lovely Athena, I drew a kitty hugging moment. Unsurprisingly, Angel Rosie was my muse for this one, just as she is for so many of my other drawings.


Wishing all of our furiends a wonderful Caturday full of happiness and hugs!

Our Tip of the Day:
Always keep in my mind that, although they may not know much of the verbal language we speak, your dogs and cats can read human body language and emotions quite well. Body language is largely how dogs and cats communicate within their own species, and so it's not terribly surprising that it's our human body language rather than our speech that they read off of the most. That being said, always remember that your furbabies will not only read your body language, but can also feed off of it and emulate it. For example, if you're feeling stressed, angry, or afraid, your furbaby will sense this and may very well begin feeling the same way. Your furbabies love and trust you, and so if they read negative energy off of you, they're likely to see significance in this, which can be unhealthy for them (not to mention the fact that it's unhealthy for  you!). So, for your furbabies' sake as well as yours, try to always keep a positive attitude.

  1. We cannot believe our mom missed Cat Hug Day, especially after getting National Doughnut Day yesterday. Pffft! Now we know where her priorities lie! Your drawing is so special. Giulietta and Mauricio are about the only ones of us who will let Mom or Dad hold them in that position. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  6. I love you art, that is so cute. And I agree that pets pick up on our moods and we should try to be calm around them. Nothing makes me more calm than the sound of a cat purring.

  11. Happy Hug Your Cat Day! I LOVE your drawing! I can read TW like a book. Last night she wasn't feeling well and I wouldn't go to bed. I kept her awake by yowling and banging the blinds on the window. I even jumped on the bed and tried to play with her face which she didn't like.

  12. Happy National Cat Day to you and the Menagerie, Lorianne! That drawing is SO wonderful. We absolutely love it.

    Your tip is awesome. Our cats have always been so in tune with us emotionally. Angels Moosey and Graphite were especially empathic.
