Do your cats hug?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Peep wraps his paws around your neck whenever you pick him up (after clawlessly tapping your face a few times first). When the cats come running up to me I'll admit to picking him up first because I adore getting kitty hugs.

Anyway, I was wondering, do your cats give you hugs or is this something that's not really all that common? I've only been hugged by two cats and both of them were male red/brown tabbies...but then I've heard that they're more affectionate, so perhaps that's it.

Harry hugs me all the time; he lies on my chest and wraps his paws around my neck.

The only problem is, sometimes he starts digging his claws into my neck which is not nice!!

My two hug each other. When I woke up this morning, Alley had her face buried in my neck. Do either of these count?

Pepper will sometimes. Usually if she's sleepy.

Lucky likes shoulder hugs. He will cry and cry until you pick him up.

Harvey used to give me hugs. He'd come stand on the bed or the table...whatever was in front of me...and put his paws on my shoulders and rub his head on my chest.

Sammie doesn't hug, but frequently when I pick her up she gently puts her left (always the left) paw on my cheek and just stares at me.

I take it as an act of love!

not really

Chloe wraps her arms around your arm if you hold her though, so I think that counts as a hug!

Kitty hugs are one of the most precious things, I'm sure you all can relate! Every time Peep hugs me I have to go show someone. ("Oh, cute," is the standard answer. Can you tell my family isn't that cat-oriented? )

I had a cat in college that would hug... I loved it.

my kitties now only hug each other .
They do snuggle and cuddle with me in bed though and will occasionally groom me too

I don't believe I've ever been hugged by a cat from the front, but Athena is a shoulder cat. And, as a shoulder cat, she'll jump on my back and press her face and front paws against my neck/shoulder while pressing her body around my head. It certainly feels like a hug, although when balance becomes an issue I wish she didn't do it (or that I bothered to trim her claws).

My cat does'nt but a friend's cat does. He'll get on his hind legs, put his paws on your chest and kiss you

Pickles likes to be held when i get home and he puts his head on my shoulder and purrs lightly while kneeding my shoulder just a little ... then he wants down -- i think of it as a hug.
Mosey - well he doesnt really hug but when he needs loving he wants hugged and squeezed. after a couple minutes he is good ,had his fill and leaves to be on his own again.

I have 2 complete opposites ..... BUT they love each other.

No one compared to my last hugger Jade... He was a great hugger!!! I miss him!

Faith is learning how to hug though, and Brazil hugs every once in a while.

Albus hugs....his favorite place to snuggle with me is when I sit in my desk chair and lean back. He sits on my chest as far up as he can, puts at least one paw around my neck and licks my face. My boyfriend started calling him Cat-sanova!

It's so freaking adorable and is the best thing to come home to.
