The love we have for our cats is immeasurable…
Cats are considered to be part of the family and the affection that we share for one another is shown to our feline friends too.
A question that I’ve been wondering lately is, can my cat sense my love?
Does your cat have an idea of just how much they mean to you?
Well, if you frequently hear your cat purring or you see your cat kneading and slow blinking, these are all strong indications that your cat has an emotional connection with you.
To answer the question, once a cat has a settled home, the cat will see you as a parent.
As we all know, parents are generally caring, loving and offer guidance to their children.
As a child you seek and understand that this love and guidance exists. You have a sense that your parent has your best interests at heart.
A 2019 study shows that cats have a similar attachment to their owners as babies have to their parents.
The studies show that kittens were visibly distressed when their owner left the house and comforted upon their return.
This attachment to their owners (or should I say parents?) continued into the cats adult lives.
When a cat meows at you, this is very much a sign of trust and this trust can be also interpreted as affection.
As you know, trust is a two-way thing so if you think about it deeply, the trust that your cat has displayed towards you is born out of the fact that you love them.
We live with an amazing black cat called Coco.
He is so loved and I do get a sense that he understands this.
He shows all of the signs that he’s happy loves us and it really is heart-warming to see…
He slow blinks in our direction every day when we talk to him and I slow blink back at him.
He purrs a lot!
Everywhere my wife and I go, Coco has to be there too, if even shares our bed with us.
Coco’s tail is upright constantly with a hook shape at the tip meaning ‘let’s be friends’.
Coco always head butts us and rubs his cheeks against us too.
He meows a lot but it seems more conversational rather than needy or wanting meows.
All of these signs show how content and happy he is and I have no doubt that he if he didn’t feel loved, he wouldn’t be so affectionate.
