8 Signs Your Cat Loves You

Sometimes it can seem as though your feline friends give you attention only when they’re hungry or want to play. But that doesn’t mean they don’t love you.
Cats do give signs of affection, and if you watch for them — although they’re subtle — they’re very clear. Which of these signs does your cat display?

1. Rubbing and Tapping

These are the obvious ones. Head rubbing, tail tapping and brushing up against you when passing by are all very clear signs of cat love.

2. Grooming

Cats groom one another to bond. If cats groom you, they’re reminding you that you are a part of their family.

3. Kneading

Kittens knead their mother’s belly to get more milk while nursing. Kneading on your skin and drooling are definitive signs that your cat is happy.

4. Following

Have you noticed that your cat usually is in the same room as you? Cats might not act like they notice you’re there, but they definitely meander into the same room as you for a reason.

5. Gifts

Cats are natural hunters. When they bring you what they consider a fine catch — a mouse, bird or snake — they’re letting you know that they have something to offer, too.

6. Missing You

You might not see that cats are sad when you’re gone, but notice how they welcome you home. Do they meet you at the door? Meow a “hello” and brush against you when you come inside? These are all ways cats have of letting you know they’re glad you’re back.

7. Kitty Kisses

This is a less noticeable sign of affection, but one that means a lot in the cat world. “Cat kisses” are when cats look at you and blink, squint or shut their eyes. That’s their way of saying they aren’t a threat to you.

8. Lying on Their Back

Exposing the belly is another sign of vulnerability that lets you know your cat trusts you and feels comfortable in your shared space. Remember, however, that this isn’t always an invitation for a belly rub. Return the gesture by approaching your cat with respect when they are in this vulnerable position.


How does your cat show their affection for you?

Happy (almost) Wordless Wednesday.

Musings #3 Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to the Mancat,

who amuses and delights me

with his enchanting purrsonality.

“I have noticed that what cats most appreciate in a human being is not the
ability to produce food which they take for granted–but his or her
entertainment value.”
