Happy Holidays Must Include a Hug

If you’ve met me in person, you know I’m a hugger. What you may not know about me is that I love cats, big and small.

The following video was included in the Ten Most Popular Viral Videos of 2008 from Silicon Valley Insider. (When you open up the Alley Insider link, two of the non-YouTube videos may already be running.)

This is my holiday message to Friends, Family and First Time Readers of my blog. Please accept a big Virtual Hug from me.

Now go hug somebody.

  1. Very nice. Happy holidays.

  2. I’m a hugger too! They are always the perfect size and are easy to exchange.

    Vanessa’s last blog post..Extra-Large Spatula Please!

  3. Hug received!

    You know I’m a cat-loving hugger too… so, please receive a really big virtual hug from me!

    P.S. What an amazing video!

  4. I’m a cat lover, which is funny because our singles advocacy site is trying to speak against stereotypes such as the crazy cat lady. But I *am* a crazy cat lady. You can’t see the Christian the Lion video and NOT become a crazy cat person!!! Thanks for the virtual feline hugs! –CC at Onely
