10 Surprising And Beautiful Ways Your Cat Shows You Love
Even though our cats can't speak aloud, she is constantly trying to find ways to communicate with us. Here are 10 unique ways that our cats are saying "I love you."
1. Kneading Your Legs
If your cat is curled up and kneading your lap while you are petting him, he is returning the affection and telling you he loves you right back.
2. Bringing You a Present
You may be used to your cat bringing you toys or small, dead animals. This is your cat's way of showing love. Cats love with gifting. They catch everything from toys to bugs, mice or frogs, often share the bounty with those they love.
3. Head-Butting You
Head-butting may seem odd, but it actually shows that your cat truly cares about you. Cats have secret glands concentrated on their cheeks and heads. When she rubs her head or face against you, she is marking you with her scent and declaring you as part of her family.
4. Staring Into Your Eyes
This might be the display of cat love that is easiest for you to understand. If your kitty stares at you, blinks, opens his eyes wide then slowly blinks a second time, she is telling you he loves and trusts you.
5. Showing You Their Belly
If your cat rolls over on its back to give you a flash of that fuzzy belly, this indicates that they feel comfortable around you.
6. Curving the Tip of Their Tail
The tail can actually be an unbelievable barometer into how your kitty feels about you. They express warm feelings by fluffing out the base of their tails while subtly quivering them, and holding their tails upright with a slight curve at the top.
7. Nipping You
This show of love from your kitty may be a bit painful... but she really doesn't understand her love bite isn't always pleasant for you.
8. Rubbing Against Your Legs
When your kitty just can't seem to get enough of your legs, that is likely a sign of true love. She is putting her scent on you as a way of claiming you as her own.
You may have heard your kitty purr before, but you may not have realized that this was a love purr.
10. Following You Around
If your kitty follows you from room to room, jumps onto tables and counters to be near you, and always seems to be right where you step, she clearly enjoys your company.
