Hug Your Cat Day

 Wowee, kitties!  Did we rock the house down yesterday or what?  Mom gave up at midnight, mixed up a big bowl of meowgaritas, made sure the niptini fountain was full, put a bunch of records on the stereo and went to bed.  We kitties were still a-rockin' and a-rollin' and THoEing to beat the band.  Max the Psychokitty was shaking his booty like mad. When Mom got up just after dawn to get breakfast, there were crashed out kitties everywhere, including in bed with her.  She served up a generous breakfast of Stinky Goodness and Tiki Cat and went back to bed.  By the time she got up for real, all the visiting kitties had recovered enough to teleport home.  There weren't any leftovers to speak of.  I have spent most of the day just lying around on the living room carpet recovering.  Thank you all for helping me celebrate my 5th birthday in style.  ::finally notices the title of the post::  Hey!  This is supposed to be Mancat Monday!

Karen Jo:  This is a special day.  You can have Mancat Monday again next week.  So, how do you feel about being hugged?

I hate it.  Pet me and give me chin scritches and especially chest scritches, but don't hug me.
Spyro:  Man, I'm pooped.  I haven't played so hard in all my born days.  I spent most of the day crashed out in the laundry basket.  As for hugging, keep it to yourself.  Pet me and give me chin scritches and especially belly rubs, but don't hug me.
Oja: Hug ME!  I love to be hugged, petted, scritched, rubbed and loved on any way you please, just love me.  This picture is kind of dark, but I hope you can see my curly tail.  Mom loves how my tail curls up.  My front half is blurry because I decided to jump down just as Mom snapped the picture.  I still spend a good deal of time hiding because it is awfully noisy around here and I don't just mean the party.

Karen Jo:  I hope it doesn't put too much stress on you, but there is a bunch of roadwork going on very near my house.  You come out almost as soon as I come in your room, then it's a love-in.  I lean back on the couch and you get on my chest and we love on each other for a long time.  I got you a vet appointment for tomorrow to see about your runny nose, though it seems better today -- not quite as much kitty snot coming out.

Oja:  I don't wanna go to the vet!  I wanna stay here!

Karen Jo:  Don't worry.  We won't be there long.  We just need to get you checked out and in the vet records as being my kitty.  Then we will come right back home again and I will love on you.

Oja:  I guess that's all right.

I'm still tired after that party. And I am avoiding everyone because I so do not want to be hugged!

sounds like an amazing party!

We don't do hugs either. Oja, hope your vet visit goes well. That was a great party. Sure glad you are doing so well Herman.Take care.

You are so kind Oja to step up and take the hugs for everyone!

Hugs, not so much. Cuddles are welcomed and appreciated but our mommy hugs too hard and we're afraid that she might squeeze all the stuffing out of us.
Oja, we will be purraying that your vet visit goes well and that you are soon showing those boys what for! (the last little bit of that is from Taz, aka "the Princess" and she could give lessons on how to keep the big "boys" in line!)
Snuggles and purrs,
Taz, Runt and Charles in IL

That was some party, Herman! We had such a fun time celebrating your birthday, pal! We are definitely STILL recovering.

Hope you had a great hug your cat day (well, we hope *Oja* had a great Hug Your Cat Day, anyway). We hope Herman and Spyro had a great "Chin Scritch Your Cat" day.

Paws and fingers crossed for Oja's visit to the v-e-t.
