We Love Them With All Of Our Hearts
They’ve not only become a household pet but a member of your family. Did you know that some of your cute feline friend’s behaviors are them showing you how much they love you right back!
Talk About a “Purrfect” Love Story
Have you been relaxing at home and hear a resonating purr coming from your cat’s direction? Purring is the pinnacle sign of a cat’s love for their human companion. Combined with meows, this sound is typically reserved for you, their special human, and is their way of communicating their love for you. In fact, we have heard from some cat parents that they purr the loudest when they want your undivided attention.
Follow The Leader
While this was a fun game to play as a child, if your cat is mimicking your movements, this is a way of them displaying their love for you. Crazy right? The thing is cats just want to be close to you and want to be your focal point. When you are doing laundry or other chores around the house, they are seeking your attention by trying to “trip” you up. According to recent studies, your cat will do this more often if you have been gone for a period of time or if you’ve been preoccupied with another activity. That is totally okay. However, once you see this behavior starting to occur more frequently, make sure to kneel down and give an extra love tap to your kitties!
Wouldn’t You Love A Nap?
Did you know that Cats can sleep on average 15 hours per day? That is why they need a comfy resting spot. If you’ve experienced your feline falling into slumber on your lap, that is a strong signal that your cat trusts you completely. Trust is big when it comes to getting a cat to sleep with ease. When you think about it… we are a lot alike. We sleep next to our significant others once trust is established. However, there are times when we need our own space. Cats are the exact same way! Don’t worry if they prefer an alternative cozy spot to rest, experts say they’ll likely come back to nap on your lap.
If you’ve ever felt a cute nibble on your skin from your kitten, chances are you are getting his or her love and affection. These gentle toothy movements are usually accompanied by loud purring or even closed eyes. While you think they are being playful, they are displaying their total devotion to you. Should they get a little rough, it’s important to acknowledge when your threshold has been crossed, so they realize what the proper behavior is. Referred to amongst cat parents as “making biscuits”, this kneading action combined with the nibbles is the truest PDA you can experience.
