Here’s how cats say ‘I love you’:
1. They lick your skin with their raspy tongue.
Cats groom themselves by licking their fur, so if they lick you, they’re saying they adore you and want you to look as good as them.
2. They nibble on your fingers and toes.
This usually happens after you stroke your cat – it’s their way of saying thanks for the awesome rub.
3. They headbutt you.
Head bunting is how cats mark someone they love and trust, which is worth the minor head pain.
4. They stomp on you.
Feline stomps are actually a form of behavior used by baby cats to nurse. Adult cats only do it when they feel loved and relaxed.
5. They scream at you.
Cats only use sounds when trying to talk to humans, not with each other. So when they scream at you, you should feel really special.
6. They twirl on your legs while you walk.
When cats rub their bodies on your legs while you walk, they’re really showing their affection with their whole body.
7. They try to trip you by stretching out on the floor.
A cat stretching out and twisting on the floor is exposing its most vulnerable part, its belly, to someone it trusts.
8. They proudly display their butt to you.
In cat language, showing their buttholes is a show of trust and affection. Who else would you show your butt to?
