While some cats like to stay independent, many enjoy hugs too. Some breeds are more friendly and cuddly than others, but each cat is unique, and many ‘aloof’ breeds still love a hug.

Cats that like being hugged enjoy feeling close to their owners when they are picked up, which can help soothe them.

Cuddling a cat is believed to be good for human health – it lifts your mood, reduces stress, and calms you, which can benefit your cardiovascular system and mental health.

Sometimes a hug doesn’t have to be one where you’ve wrapped your arms around a cat – they may just enjoy spending time on your lap.

Don’t Hug Strange Cats

If you don’t own a cat, don’t go looking for cats in your neighborhood to hug – even if it’s a cat you see regularly, they may not like hugs, so don’t invade their space.

Time to Adopt?

Don’t be too sad if you feel like you’re missing out on National Hug Your Cat Day – maybe it’s a sign that you should adopt your own cat?

Celebrating While Allergic

If you’re allergic to cats, then you can still celebrate. Just spend the day watching cute cat videos on YouTube or scrolling through cute cat pictures instead. It’s like a digital hug for your soul!

Watch Out for Naps

One thing to be careful of – if you let your kitty get too comfy in the hug, they may start to nap. We hope you didn’t have plans that involved moving for the next hour!
