5 Signs Your Cat Actually Loves You

Have you ever wondered if your cat loves you? Cats express love for their owners in a number of ways. While some of these may be a bit obvious, other tokens of their affection have some hidden meaning behind them and you may have overlooked them not even realizing it.

Once you know the signs, though, you’ll probably realize that your cat says “I love you” to you each and every day! If they demonstrate several or all of the things listed below, you must have one affectionate feline who cares about you very much.

Here’s a list of 5 ways your cat shows their love for you:



1. Your cat has a thing for head butting you

Although you would never think of this as a friendly gesture with a human, to receive a head butt (head bunt) from a cat is a pretty big deal. When your cat shares this special privilege with you, they are actually depositing facial pheromones on to you. These serve to represent their loving feelings, and their “possession” towards you, as if they are leaving traces of their scent to claim you with. Those head bumps say, “I love you, you’re mine!”

2. Love bites… but hopefully not too hard!

When your cat nibbles on you playfully, this is one of their ways of showing their affections towards you. It’s much different than a bite that could cause bodily harm, and tickles more than anything.

3. Following/lingering around wherever you are

Cats often linger around their owners when they are fond of them. If that furry feline is rubbing around your legs—or even accidentally tripping you as you walk—know that they only want to be close to you. (They may even follow you to the bathroom – talk about true love!) Even though your cat may pretend to be aloof when you are around, he’s bluffing if he always seems to be nearby.

4. Twitching the tips of their tail




A cat’s tail is like a mood sensor, with each movement depicting their feelings. If your cat holds their tail up casually, flipping the tip when they’re around you, they think you’re the “cat’s meow.” Perhaps they’re spelling “I love you” in cat code!

5. Eye contact with a kitty kiss—if you’re lucky

Cats only tend to make eye contact with those they know well and have developed trust for – so if you catch your kitty giving you the eye, don’t be worried. When your kitty locks eyes with you, casting a slow blink once eyes are met, this is their version of a kiss. Be a sweetie and give them a slow blink in return to show them some love back!
