Hug Your Cat Day

on May 3, 2014

Awakenings, catnip’s sister site, posts What’s Happenin’ on a fairly regular basis. Included are funny days, weird celebrations, wacky holidays and lots of food & chocolate. Often some appear that are actually ordinary and serve as a reminder. Since catnip is such a lover of our feline, fur-r-ry friend the cat it is only fitting to recognize here that today is…

Hug Your Cat Day


If you don’t own a cat, Hug Someone Else’s Cat! (Some celebrate Hug Your Cat Day on June 4th. Feel free to celebrate both.)


Sam-SuperkittyIn honor of Hug Your Cat Day, I would like to introduce you to Marion Lovato and her first published book, Sam, the Superkitty. Sam, aka Sammy, is the ‘superhero’ in the tale of a brave cat who is able to overcome obstacles and secure confidence in himself, and in others, by crusading as his alter ego, Sam, The Superkitty.

In the face of the many perils that go bump in the night, Sam, The Superkitty, proves himself a courageous force to be reckoned with. But, he must never let his family know that he is truly a superhero…

Meet the author…Marion-Lovato

After retiring from the fifth largest school district in the country, Marion Lovato decided to try her hand at writing children’s books. Sam, The Superkitty is the first in a series based on her youngest cat, Sammy. Combining some of his antics with her imagination, Marion has produced a book for all ages.  (Reading level is third grade.) She hopes to have the next book in the series out next year. You can visit Marion at her blog, Cats Rule.

Snuggle with your favorite feline and read a kitty based story or visit your favorite kitty blogs.
Of course, keep you little kitty in your lap so he/she can enjoy the other fur-r-ry friends.

    I enjoyed this site and was happy to see Jake here and Marion who has a delightful book. I can’t hug my Toby right now, until I recover from cleaning up the throw up all over the house–he found some more plastic to chew onand is in the cathouse at the moment.

      Oh, oh! Poor Toby. :>) That happens sometimes, unfortunately. Hang in there, Micki. Good to see you active online again. I missed you.
