A couple weekends ago, we decided to take Tink to the local farmer’s market. Amidst the “Oh, how adorable” comments were many others about how small she was as well as questions about what breed she is. The comical part is how many times we heard people say they thought we were walking a cat.
Cats really aren’t our thing though. Madison is allergic (whew) so when days like “National Hug Your Cat Day” roll around, we limit our feline interaction to games centered around the colorful creatures. A couple years ago we saw a rising trend in cat-themed games and featured Cat Tower, Here Kitty Kitty, Kitty Paw and Tem-Purr-A. These games are a purrfect addition to our game collection and great for celebrating National Hug Your Cat Day (June 4th) or National Cat Day (October 29th) in a way that doesn’t have anyone sneezing! Since that time, we’ve discovered several new cat-themed games along with reminders of a few older titles. Check these out and you’re sure to find some that will have you feline fine!

Despite the common cat-theme, the games are quite diverse. Some are roll and move games for younger kids, others are more strategic or even may be party games for adults. You’ll find a variety of card, dice and board game. The choices run the gamut so find one that looks appealing and give it a shot! None of these games will scratch you when you try to hug it either!
