Happy Hug Your Cat Day! If, like us, you are an ailurophiliac then let us celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with a round up of some of our favourite feline time fillers.

"Neko-Sushi is an extremely unusual life-form consisting of a cat on top of a portion of sushi rice." So there you have it, there is nothing else to be said.

For city dwellers having a pet can be a real bind. And so we introduce cat pockets by Japanese artist Hiroko Kubota. Carry a furry friend with you wherever you go, it will look great and leave no mess.

Truancy figures would drop considerably if all of our schools looked like cats. We can use this example, by artist Tomi Ungerer, to inspire and strengthen our nation.

The internet is awash with cat tumblrs, they come and they go. Here are a couple of long term favourites. There's OMG Cats in Space for trippy muggy heaven and The Cat Scan for cats, on scanners.

Catflexing is the ultimate work out routine for you and your kitty. Stephanie Jackson's program lets readers use their feline companion to shape, tone, and reduce. available here.

Finally, if you’re a bit bored today why not bounce some cats. It’s cruelty free and most enjoyable.
