7 ways cats show they love us

There’s no doubt that cats love us as much as we love them. People who haven’t been blessed with furry feline love have a difficult time believing this because kitties show affection very differently than people or dogs do.

How cats love

Cats Love with Purrs.

When your cat purrs in your presence, you can be sure she’s expressing her love for you.

Cats Love with Bunting. 

When a cat cheek-rubs you, head-bumps your face, or pushes against you, he leaves his scented signature.



Cats Love with Spraying.

Say it ain’t so! But it’s true—if your cat has decided to baptize your bed or other belongings with urine, you should consider it a back-handed compliment.

Cats Love with Rolling.

When kitty throws himself on the ground at your feet, and rolls around, consider this a loving greeting and a solicitation for attention.

Cats Love with Scratching.

Pay attention to where your cat scratches the most. The areas most important to kitty often are related to those places associated with the owner, like a favorite chair where you sit.


Cats Love with Sleeping.

Since they are most vulnerable during sleep, the place your cat chooses to snooze must be a secure and trusted location. There is no greater loving compliment than a cat choosing your lap for a favorite sleep spot.

Cats Love with their Eyes.

Cats that place their faces and wide open eyes near a human express great trust and love. A slow “eye blink” from across the room is considered a cat kiss.
