If you own a cat, then it’s likely that your pet is the centre of your world. But are cats capable of love? Do they care about their owners or see them as providers and protectors?
The answer is yes! Cats do indeed have loving relationships with their human companions. At the same time, there may not be hugs, snuggles, or overt displays of affection compared to what dogs might show us. Many studies suggest cats can form attachments and deep emotional bonds with certain people.
Research has shown that when cats become stressed by sudden changes in their environment, these duplicate felines will often seek comfort from familiar individuals, such as immediate family members, even if strangers are present.
Studies conducted on primates indicate how highly communicative animals express more confidence and trust around humans when left alone with those with strong bonds. This evidence explains why one commonly finds kittens faster at exploring new surroundings than adult cats which spend less time tailing after those who feed them repeatedly compared to puppies, for instance.
Real-time provides an excellent opportunity for bonding between two species (and cuddling afterwards). Unsurprisingly, housecats display feelings comparable to loyalty towards kindhearted keepers, showering them with plenty of TLC daily!
Cats Are So Adorable Pets
Have you ever wondered if cats love their owners? If so, you’re not alone. Cats are mysterious creatures that often seem more interested in things like chasing after bugs and lounging around than spending time with us humans. But the truth is, felines develop strong bonds with their owners and can exhibit behaviours suggesting they genuinely care for us!
In this blog post, we will discuss some common signs of affection a cat gives when it loves its owner and other ways to show your pet how much you appreciate them.
Cats are so adorable. They always need love and spread love. First, it’s important to note that not all cats demonstrate the same types of behaviour or level of attachment towards people; even within the same littermates, tendencies may vary drastically.
However, there are still many telltale traits specifically adopted by cats who genuinely have an emotional connection with someone–let’s take a look at a few:
This is one of the most apparent indicators your kitty cares about you! A loud purr signals contentment while being held or stroked and often serves as a way for cats to say ‘thank you.’
- Slow Blinking
Known in feline circles as kitten kisses, slow Blinking shows trustors indicate happiness in the presence of someone special (usually its primary person). If you get two slowly shuttered blinks back, then consider yourself owned! Look into your furry friend’s eyes during snuggle time next time.
- Tail Upright
Does your tail go up high when she looks at her human companion? This pose calls attention to itself, allowing further communication, including scent marking via rubbing against objects(or legs!).
While distinctions exist between feline behavior & canine interactions, having ears covered in downy fur doesn’t make showing appreciation impossible!
