I Love My Hooman

Do you think of cats as being independent and aloof? Too uppity to ever give, rather than get, some cuddles? Well, think again. Here’s proof that they’re not always that way!
Hugs from Kitty
How sweet is this? There are many pictures of children hugging cats, often against their will, or with the cat barely tolerating the hugs, but how often do you see the kitty going out of its way to hug the child? This kitty obviously loves his little hooman a lot!


Cat hugs neck

Think cats are snooty? Not this one! This orange tabby shows us just how sweet a kitty can be. He has his paws wrapped around his hooman’s neck and his head cuddled in close, too. Can’t you just hear the purrs?

Lion Cub Hugs

This is Sirga, an African lion cub, giving a big-pawed hug to one of the two hoomans who saved her when she was driven from her pride as a baby. The two hooman men are Valentin Gruener and Mikkel Legarth and they are working to save Sirga’s species in Botswana.

20 year old cat

And last, but not least, this is CC, who is an amazing 20 years old, giving a hug to her hooman mom. Which just goes to show – you’re never too old for a hug!

    Warning: If you don’t like to hug cats, don’t come to my house. Even if you just stand there minding your own business, at least one and very likely several will demand hugs and love. Even the technician who came to repair the wifi was not safe.

    No one can sit for more than a few minutes without somekitty deciding that person was making a lap.

    all cats have their moments of independence and aloofness but the majority of them who are valued members of a family and regularly give and receive affection can be very loving

    My cat is 12 yrs and during the day is always demanding attention. I try to ignore him after 1/2 hour of petting and lov’in but he still demands attention. I try food & toys but he just wants me constantly. If I sit or lay down he is there. He doesn’t go outside much and when he does he stays on the patio..then back in the house to bother me. HELP ! He doesn’t hunt or play.

    I’ve had 2 cats that lived to 20. Both were sweet loving souls that I loved very much. Their deaths were so terribly hard on me and I still miss them to this day. But I have more rescued cats that need me now and I love each of them so much. I’ll see them all again and what a glorious day to be with all my family, both human and animal, when I pass.

    Few things make me happier than to have a cat glom onto me like a refrigerator magnet.

    That’s pretty much what happens. Some of my big males were bottle babies, now they’re affectionate huggers who love everyone.

    Have been owned by many many cats over a 50 year period. Each and every one with a different personality, but there were always those who wanted and demanded to be hugged. Oh and my oldest kitty who also lived 20 years plus was one of them.

    Yep, just last night my dad came downstairs to visit and immediately had 4 cats circling him looking for love and when he sat down, one jumped in his lap. 🙂

    I warn people, if you sit, they see a lap and won’t be afraid to use it 🙂

    Those are very cute pictures!! I got one by accident of our kitten when she first came to our house, the first Christmas with us. My dad was laying on the floor with the back of his head against a chair to watch TV, so his neck was wide open, and our new kitten came over and laid across his neck and passed out. She also found little places to hide as she was only 14.7 oz. when we got her, as we weighed her on a scale, we think she was only 6 wks. old and not 8 when we got her because of her size. I love all cats!!

    A man told me last night that cats are worthless because they aren’t protective like dogs. Well they do keep our home free from rodents and bugs they can reach and loving, caring and best friends. They aren’t much help with racoons but they do let me know when they are around.

    There is a streak of independence in every cat, but aloof? Anyone who thinks that has not taken the time to form a relationship with a cat.
