Few things in this world make us feel as special as when we know our pet loves us. They give us unconditional love, and we just can't help but return the favour.
Cats have a reputation for being fickle and mysterious creatures, but if you take the time to look for the signs, you might come to find that your cat loves you just as much as any dog does!
Here are some of the most common ways cats show their affection.
#1 Your Cat Rubs Their Face Against You
There are a few unambiguous signs in cats' language, like rubbing face against humans!
When a cat rubs their face against your legs or any parts of your body, it is a true expression of love!
That way, the cat releases pheromones and "marks" you as their possession.
It is also a way for your fur baby to tell you that they want to cuddle with you! When a cat rubs against you, stop for a minute and cuddle!
In cat's language, you'll share expressions of love!
You may think that any cat will purr when you pet them. In reality, cats are naturally distrustful, and they only purr when around humans they feel comfortable with.
Cats, like humans, feel comfortable around people they love, so don't take purring for granted!
It is a way your cat is telling you that they love you and feel safe around you!
#3 The Cat Wants to Be Around You
If your furry friend follows you around the house, it is probably because the little beast loves you!
In some situations, they might not even seek your attention. They will sit near you and watch you, as a true worshiper!
When they like someone, cats stare at the human's eyes! It might seem spooky when you don't speak their language.
But, when a cat stares into your eyes and starts blinking slowly, your cat is telling you that they love you!
You can answer by doing the same.
#5 The Cat is Exposing Belly
Have you ever seen a street cat lying with their belly exposed? You probably haven't!
Cats only expose their bellies when they feel safe and comfortable around loved ones.
Lying on their back is the most vulnerable position for every cat. When they rest in that position, it sends the message that they trust that you will protect them.
It is an ultimate sign of love because your pet becomes truly dependable on you!
#6 The Cat Bites You Gently
Dogs lick the people they love, and cats bite them gently. Biting is part of a natural cat's instincts, but you should be able to determine aggression from affectionate biting.
Aggressive biting is a sign of misbehaviour, and it can puncture your skin and hurt you.
On the other hand, when a cat bites you gently, and the teeth only are in contact with the skin for a short time, it is your cat kissing you and telling you how much they love you!
Also, a cat thinks you enjoy these moments. So, next time your pet mouths you, don't pull your hands right away!
Let the cat kiss you. Sometimes, when a cat feels you are ready to pull the hand away, it might start biting aggressively as part of the instinct.
In reality, your cat's intentions were just the opposite!
Cats make meowing sounds only around people they love.
They might hiss or snarl when they feel threatened, but they will never meow around unknown people.
It is as simple as that - when a cat meows at you, they tell you how much they love you!
I hope you enjoyed this list of signs your cat loves you. It’s not a complete list by any means, but it should be enough to get the ball rolling and start noticing more of these little things that make us feel loved by our feline friends.
