Sunday Selfie #hugyourcatday

Happy Sunday!


Today we are celebrating Hug Your Cat Day. Yeah, I know, it's a day late, but we totally forgot about it. As you know, Mum's head is all over the place lately, and well, I should have reminded her but I was busy taking care of her and offering her lots of love and purrs.

Anyway, Mum wanted to post pictures of her first real soulmate cat, Suzy. If you've read Mum's memoir and her novel The Snowflake Pendant you will already know about her. And also if you are a regular follower of this blog you would have already 'met' her. She aso features in our side bar.

Here is sweet Suzy. She was with Mum for 13 years but sadly is now over the Rainbow Bridge. She passed away on June 29th 1998 :(

SUZY (1985-1998)

And here is Mum hugging her



And of course there has to be a photo of me getting hugs from Mum too! It's me when I was little, just a few days after I was adopted! How cute was I?


hug your cat every day


And before we go, a selfie from Mum in her Supervet "Pets and Hugs and Rock 'n' Roll" T-Shirt!

pets and hugs and rock n roll

My human is sad that she does not have a photo of herself with her soul cat, the cat before Sparkle.

We love seeing you and Suzy getting hugs from Mom. You all have so much love it pours out of our puter and makes us want to hug all the more here at the Tomcat Home.

We should hug our cats every day. Our first cat is always very special. I'll always remember my Victory, who was with me for 18 years.

You remind me of the importance of including humans in photos! I so rarely do that, and I can see those photos really do bring comfort. I'm adding it to my to-do list!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

This is by far the best (and most moving) post relating to Hug Your Cat Day. No matter how amazing our cats are, we can never forget any of the ones that have gone before. Bear is incredible and has saved my life every single day for the past ten years (not bad for a homeless kitten who happened to cross my path) - but I still miss Kitty so much it hurts. She saved me in a different way. I'm glad we found your page and will connect with you on all the social media platforms we participate in so we can enjoy more of your story. Thank you.

We are happy to know that it is #hugyourcatday. We are going to demand lots of those hugs. We love all your pictures of hugs in this post. Nice job.

Have a great day.

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Those are great hug pictures. It's never too late to get a hug. :)

Thanks, you too :)

Marie Symeou said...

Thank you. And glad you like the book :)

Marie Symeou said...

Thank you. And what lovely words :)

Marie Symeou said...

Thank you. There is something so special and amazing going on when I hug cats. I suppose it's because my human relationships have always been a let down and my cats have always been there for me. But then again I just love animals, especially cats! I seem to connect with then on such a deeper level :)

My first cat was actually a grey tabby called Tigger (also Elvis and Tiger!)I was a kid when whe got him but he disappeared after a few years and of course I was devastated. Can't remember him that much if I'm honest.
