Momma cats love hugging their kittens!
Quite a lot, even!
Feeling like giving your own kitty a hug?
That may or may not be a good idea. We have to remember that many cats prefer not to be hugged. Some cats don’t even want to be held up. Even cats that are ok with hugging their humans may not always be in the mood for it. Respect your cat’s boundaries and only give them a hug IF and when they want to.
