Hug Your Cat Day

"Dogs have masters, cats have staff"

June 4th is Hug Your Cat Day. 

It's a holiday (unofficial off course) for cat lovers everywhere to celebrate the joy of their cat. (don't worry dog lovers, there's a national day for you too!) 

There is always llloottttsss of debate between dog and cat lovers about which one tops the pet scale, but being a multi pet owner I love my cat because for me, a cat symbolises the peace and tranquillity of home. My home just doesn't feel complete without a feline friend to greet me at the door and their ppuurrr of contentment always makes me feel relaxed, to want to curl up and read a book.

I think the mischief they get up to with their natural curiosity has brought me fits of giggles plenty of times. There are oftentimes I've lost time just watching my cat get up to his antics whether he's chasing butterflies, trying to dislodge a cricket, gifting me wingless cockroaches, playing pancake cat or ousting the dog from her bed. My world just won't be the same without his entertainment and thanks to his endless work, my house is pest free. As I tell him every day when I see his artful placement of hunted gathering's "You've earned your dinner tonight pet" (you think I'm kidding…)

What fascinates me most about the topic of cats more so than dogs is that they are either revered or hated throughout history or religion for what they represent. They've been held in high esteem by the Egyptians, hated by Medieval Europe for their representation of witches and heretics as it was said that the devil himself could transform into a black cat. They've been admired by the Celts for their sensitivity and strength, used by Druids to represent the cross over between the spiritual world and the physical world. Been used to represent the balance between light and dark, linked with female medicine and rebirth for their gift of having nine lives. Still today in Ireland, black cats are considered lucky especially when one crosses your path and people are often give a gift of a "black bog cat" statue for good luck. (It's not all shamrocks, Guinness and whiskey you know!) 

Whatever your thoughts about cats I believe they have special gifts they can teach us and if you recall my post on Rituals Not Resolutions you already know I've learned some good life lessons from my cat so he'll definitely be getting his hugs today. Happy Hug Your Cat Day!!!

Cat Fun Facts:

• Cats are way too cool to be put in a Santa Claus or Halloween outfit.
• In polls, more women agree to date a man who owns a cat.
• In a survey conducted by a UK University they found people who own cats are more likely to have a college degree than dog owners! (Don't shot the messenger…)
• Cat owners are 30% less likely to die of a heart attack as they reduce stress levels.
• In 2003 a study done in Austria found that, owning a cat was similar to the emotional attachment of a romantic partner.
• Studies done in the UK found that people prefer to sleep with their cat than their partner as they get a better night's sleep.

NOW, we'd love to hear your feedback on why your cat is getting a special hug today. Tweet your cat hugging photos to #authenticapets.com and feel free to share this with people you think will love it.
