How do you show your love and attention to your cat?
You and your cat are best friends with each other. You show your love for them by keeping them nice, meeting their needs, worrying about their health and nutrition. But do you know how to show your love in a way that they understand? Animal and feline behavioral experts recommend these five ways to create a loving bond with your pet cat.
1. Bring your face closer to theirs
When your cat feels affectionate, they like to purr and get close, and gently rub their head on you, especially on your head.
Getting their head closer to you is a way to get your attention and show they trust you. You don’t have to respond to them by bumping into your cat, but if you keep your face close to his face and keep this contact, your cat knows that his feelings are mutual and you show your love for him in a way he understands.
2. Pet your cat like their mother
There are cats that try to show their love for you by licking you as if you were of the same kind. For them, this is showing friendship and affection in the way cats lick their kittens.
Accept this action, where they show their feelings for you, and try to respond by gently stroking their head and back with a damp cloth.
When your cats are comfortable with you and feel good, they will usually blink slowly at you with their eyes half closed. In cats’ language, this is a symbol of trust and affection, and cat behavior experts use it to gain their trust.
If you have such a relaxing moment with your cat and they start winking at you, try to lower your face to their level and imitate their blinking. They will definitely understand you!
4. Pet Your Cat From Nose To Tail
Cats like to rub their upper body against your body.
Nothing is better than coming home after a long day and finding your cat purring loudly and rubbing at you. This is not just a way for them to show that they are happy to see you, but a way for them to mark you with their scent and claim you belong to them. In response to the goodness done, cats gently pat your nose to the tip of their tail to show that the feelings are mutual.
5. Play with your cat
Domestic cats tend to have low activity levels.
Spending time and playing games with them is a way to strengthen the bond between you and help them develop their “hunter-cat” instincts. You can find many toys for them in pet shops, but the best ones are designed to play with you and share your interests.
All these ideas and activities will help you show your love for your best friend. It is important for your cat to realize that you are taking the time to communicate with her/him. Wait for a moment when they are comfortable and seek love and try these techniques. We all know that cats have a lot of affection to give us when they want it.
