How to know if your cat Loves You?
If you want to find out how to know if your cat loves you, we detail 7 signs that will clarify if your furry one harbors love for you in his heart. Our feline friends don’t always make their feelings too obvious. Many times they can even act as if they don’t care about anything or anyone, but if you pay attention you will realize that they are constantly showing their affection. We tell you what the signs are to know if your cat loves you.
Slow blinking is a sign of affection that is often overlooked by humans, so you have to be very vigilant. If you notice your cat staring at you, slowly closing and opening his eyes, he is trying to tell you that he trusts you and cares about you. Cats only exhibit this behavior with people and cats they trust. Cat experts affectionately refer to this behavior as a «kitten kiss.»
The next time you see your cat blink slowly, try to mimic her slow blinks to return this affectionate gesture. What better way to tell him how much you love him in his own language?
He shows you his belly
If you are a cat lover you will know that these furry ones do not show their belly to just anyone. It is a show of trust that you must earn. When your cat is lying down or rolling on the floor with their belly up, they are vulnerable so they only do this when they feel safe, secure and loved. Showing you her belly doesn’t necessarily mean you can pet her, and you might get a scratch if you try.
Rub his face against you
This is another way cats can tell you that they love you. When your furry bumps or rubs his cheeks against you, he is depositing pheromones from special glands on his face. Doing this leaves a mark on you to let other cats know that you are their special human. Consider this act as a privilege.
Meows at you
Cats rarely meow at other cats, with the exception of kittens meowing at their mothers. Adult cats usually only do this to get attention from humans, beg for food, or just say «hello.» Some breeds are more vocal and demanding of attention than others, but if you notice that your kitty has started to meow more than usual, pay attention, there may be something that is bothering him and ask you to attend to him.
Brings you gifts
It’s quite common for them to leave offerings to their favorite humans, which can range from sticks and leaves to not-so-nice things like dead birds and mice. Felines are hunters and for them it is an act of love to share their prey.
When cats are especially happy they push their paws in and out on a soft surface, pulling lightly with their claws, as if kneading. This is likely a residual behavior from infancy, when kittens use this movement to stimulate the flow of milk from their mother cat. When he kneads you, he feels the security and comfort of his early childhood, and associates you with the comfort and pleasure of receiving warmth and food from his cat mother.
Cats purr when they are happy and feel safe and content. If your cat purrs every time you pet or play with him, it means that he feels very comfortable with you and is happy that you are there. You may notice that his purrs get louder when you pet him.
