What better way to start the week than with a cuddly hug from your favorite feline? Today is Hug Your Cat Day, and while my research did not turn up the origins or story behind this holiday, I’ll take any chance I can get to celebrate the cuteness of kitties.
Many of us here in the office are proud cat owners. Here’s the lowdown on a few of our superstar cats:
Colleen’s Cats, Mojo (gray) and Baby (tabby)
Mojo and Baby are brother and sister, and they’re each about 3 years old.
Likes: (Mojo) Soft blankets, playing with mirrors; (Baby) Fancy food, playing with toes
Dislikes: (Mojo) Loud noises; (Baby) Being put in a corner
Tim’s Cat, Peaches
