National Hug Your Cat Day

by Nancy Lee Badger

My cat BlazeThe rumor is that ancient Egyptians revered cats. I have always spoiled mine. The ancients saw them as symbols of grace and poise, and I agree they are agile felines, less angular or bulky than dogs and other pets. They can be aloof and will ignore you, then surprise you.

The other day, I sat on my living room couch to read. Normally, I am working in my office or in the den watching TV. Was it the quiet of the room that made Blaze hop up and stretch out near me? He looked much younger than his twelve years at that moment. Kittens are fluffy and fun to watch, but the love of a mature cat is priceless (and rarely visualized).

I have neglected adding a cat to my recent novels. They can be a great addition to a paranormal plot, especially black ones. My latest stories are filled with horses and a particularly beautiful white Samoyed breed of dog, so maybe it is time to rethink cats. In the meantime, check out my series Warriors in Bronze.The holiday lands on June 4th each year, so do not forget to hug your cat and enjoy a purrrfectly fine week!

p.s. We named him Blaze for 2 reasons: the white slash across his nose, and because of our stint years earlier as volunteer firefighters.

    I’vd always been happier with dogs. Sorry about that. I love the way a dog waits at the door for your return and goes into a positive frenzy that you’ve arrived home. Yes, cats can be wonderful companions but are so much more reserved. That only my opinion.
