Cats aren’t always the easiest animals to read. How can you tell if your feline friend really loves you? Dogs display their love loud and clear for everyone to see but kitties can be a little more subtle. What signs can you watch out for? We’ve listed the 5 top signs your cat loves you.
Kneading is when your cat uses their paws to repeatedly push against you. Experts believe that cats are mimicking a behaviour from their kittenhood used to stimulate milk production. It’s a surefire way to know that your kitty adores you. Super cute but watch out – the happier he is, the more he’ll press and those claws can start to dig in! Put a thick blanket between you and your cat to keep everyone happy!
They may often be unwanted but each gift is a little way of your cat saying “I love you!”. Toys, socks, mice and birds are all small tokens of love presented to you. Your cat’s hunting instincts are still very much in tact and bringing you a dead animal to share is a sign of true friendship!
Also known as “head bunting” in the cat world, this is a sure sign that your cat loves you. By head butting and rubbing their face on you, your cat is rubbing her hormones and scent on to you, marking you as one of her family. Cute!
Cats don’t make eye contact with just anyone. If your feline friend stares into your eyes and slow-blinks, consider it a kitty-kiss. Let your cat know you love them back by returning the favour with your own slow blink!
Like most animals, lying with their tummy exposed is one of the most vulnerable positions to be in. If your cat is happy to roll around showing you her belly, it’s a sure sign that she feels completely comfortable around you and trusts you implicitly.
