It’s Valentine’s day, and what isn’t a better subject to write about on v-day than love? Cats and love = the best combination ever! Yes, cats do love, but they show it in a total different way than we do! Read on and you’ll figure out!
Cats let us know they are feeling good when they are purring. This can happen when they are on your lap, you are petting your cat or other occasions. Purring often means that your cat is in a state of euphoria.
Fact: Purring can also mean your cat is in pain.
Where does your cat likes to sleep? In the room you are in too? Whether it be next to you on the couch, or on his or hers own pillow — by sleeping he puts himself in a vulnerable position. If your cat sleeps in the same room with you, it means he trusts you. And what is a greater gift than a cat who totally trusts you?
Cats give kisses with their eyes. When they blink slowly towards you, it’s a big sign that your cat loves you. If you want to show your cat you love him, give him a kitty kiss right back. Just give him that long stare and slow blink and see what happens. Maybe you’ll be exchanging kitty kisses!
Tho, cats usually don’t make eye contact with other cats or people they are unfamiliar with. To make friends with a strange cat, it’s a good thing to just look away and make no eye contact.
Many people don’t see it this way. But cats partly love with spraying. If your cat decides to spray your bed or other stuff that belongs to you with urine, you should consider it a back-handed compliment.
Cats use their own scent to calm themselves down. Cats who feel upset or have other issues with often spray areas that smell the most like their owners. For example: your bed.
Your cat is head butting you, his cheeks are rubbing you, he pushes against you and he leaves his scent all over you! He’s telling you that he likes you, and you’re his! Head butting, cheek rubbing and all that stuff is a sign of affection to other cats, dogs and their favorite people.
When a cat is lying on his back and showing his belly. He’s putting himself in a very vulnerable position. When your cat is showing you his belly, it means that he trusts you completely! That’s a pretty big compliment, don’t you think?
Their front paws treading on soft surfaces, like they are making biscuits. It all goes back to when they were very little. Kitten paws kneas against the bother belly to induce milk to be released. Adult cats continue this kitten-behavior when they are feeling relaxed, content and loved. Kneading is an obvious expression of adoration.
You find a dead mouse/bird/other animal on your porch? That is a gift your cat has given to you! Don’t go all “EW” on it, you’ll offend him! He has worked really hard to catch that bird! But even indoor cats that are mighty hunters will catch everything — toys in general, sharing their bounty with the people they like. If they didn’t love you, they would not bring you those special gifts. So don’t get mad!
What’s more fun than a good play session between you and your cat? Cats play because they simply love it, and it’s a part of learning. Some cats may actually control the interaction of petting by moving just out of reach—so YOU must go to THEM. Their most favorite playmate typically is a trusted, beloved companion: YOU.
Suki’s Way of Showing Love
Drooling. Suki drools when she is purring. So she does it when she is calm, happy and in a state of euphoria. She will also purr, and knead when she’s in a good mood and on your lap. And every night she sleeps next to my boyfriend on the bed.
Hiro’s Way of Expression His Love
Hiro will lick your hair, and cuddle up next to you and knead on your legs until you have no skin left. He will sometimes head-butt you, and watch you until you will play with him. He doesn’t sleep with us on the bed much, but only in the morning after he had his breakfast.
I don’t know if it’s a way of love, but if I forget to put my alarm on. Hiro will always wake me up in time!
How does your cat love?
