Have you ever wondered why your cat licks you? Or maybe what causes your kitty to purr? It can often be the case that we just assume it a sign of affection, as these actions are similar to kissing, however, the real reason behind your pet’s intentions is a little different.
Hug your Hound Day officially took place on the second Sunday of September – which fell on 11th September this year. While the day itself was not about hugging as many dogs as possible – although, that does sound appealing – it was a day that is about experiencing life with your dog and making the most of developing your bond.

Unlike humans, they can’t sweat, and to make matters worse, they’re covered in hair.
Our pets are much like children, in that we love and protect them at all times, and they need almost constant attention and supervision. Unlike children, pets can’t communicate with us verbally (in a way that we fully understand, anyway) which means that when accidents do happen, we often don’t know about them until after they happen.
