These are the best I could do today. The one of me and Charlie is a rather rapidly and spontaneously taken snapshot – an iPhone selfie (jointie) but not very good. Can you do better? 😉

Hugging a cat should be done in a way that pleases the cat not the only the person 😉

    Hello there Michael! I am so pleased to see that your page is still up. I sent you a picture of my two babies Barney and Honey about 5 years ago. I thought I would pay a visit after such a long time and did not know that May 30th was “National Hug a Cat Day” Today would have been my beautiful mom’s 90th birthday but she passed away a couple of months ago; such a sad time for me. This picture was taken on May 30th last year. I am so thankful to have Barney and Honey. They are such a comfort to me.

  6. I have always put my photograph with my cats and would like to give credit to my house-keeper Sabina.Dias who looks after their food and helps me in their daily maintenance. In this photo she is seen with cat “Matahari” at my house in Mumbai.She has now gone on a short holiday to her native place in Goa and i realize the trouble in maintaining and feeding 2 cats.

      That’s so beautiful lovely picture, that’s so nice that she feeds your cats. Yea you try feeding 5 cats. Its definitely hard work.

      • Kylee, with 2 cats i find it difficult managing alone and i wonder the situation with 5 cats to feed and care.

        • kylee says:

          Well it can be very hard. I mostly just put out bowls, with their food Plenty of water and wet food. They usual tell me & Complain alot when they have run out. Some of them, even give me evil looks like disappointment. I’ll try take a photo sometime. I just love Cats so much, but im at my limit now. Thankfully my ex-partner is good, and helps me out is a cat lover too. I remember when i was on my own i only had two was much easier. I got too much of a soft heart & im too kind-hearted. 🙂

    • Great photo. I love it. It makes Matahari look very large or is Sabina a small lady?! 😉 Thanks for showing us. A nice hug.
