All cats whether they are alley cats, tomcats, or some exotic breed, are known for their independence. It’s a total myth that cats are not affectionate because that’s just not true. The truth be known, cats are extremely attached to their owners and constantly send off signs telling them I Love You! It’s just that cats have their own way of expressing their feelings but the signs are there, loud and clear if you pay attention.
We have listed 17 ways your furry buddy will let you know they love you:
1. Waiting for you at the door
Understand, animals have a far superior ability to hear sounds. Your car’s engine is a sound your cat will pick up very quickly telling them you have returned home. They will probably stand by the door or sit in a window until you walk in the door. Never underestimate cats, this is an excellent sign that your cat loves you and has missed you all day long!

2.Your Shadow Speaks Volumes To Your Tabby ( Number 9 Will Surprise You ).
When you walk through your home from room to room, kitty will follow right behind. My cat has to be in the middle of my bathroom every time I go there whether it’s to use the facilities or brush my teeth! Well, if you find it annoying, take a deep breath and realize they are telling you they love you and want to be beside you!
3. Fixed eyes ( Number 9 Will Surprise You ).
Some cats will just stare and stare at you leaving you a little uncomfortable. Not to worry! This is just another way your cat is letting you know how much he or she loves you. In general, cats will not stare at just anyone, only at people that interest them! Consider yourself a very interesting person!
4.cat meow ( Number 9 Will Surprise You ).
This is somewhat odd as cats never meow at each other, just at people. Once again, they are letting you know they love you and even more so if, when meowing, they are also purring!
5. It tolerates affection ( Number 9 Will Surprise You ).
A friend of mine has an American wirehair who loves giving tons of affection but is not big on receiving the same back. In general, cats do not like a lot of affection such as hugging and kissing. If giving affection back is important to you, just realize you might end up covered in scratches!
6. Rubbing ( Number 9 Will Surprise You ).
Some people will misinterpret their cat rubbing against their legs or face as a sign of affection. In all likelihood, your cat is leaving their scent behind, letting other cats know you are owned or spoken for! In their own way, this is a sign of love!
7.Come Get Me! ( Number 9 Will Surprise You ).
Some cats never feel safe when they are alone. I had a Bengal that cried incessantly if left totally alone. He would hunt you down in your home until he finds someone to pay attention to him. If your cat is accidentally closed off in a room, you are going to hear about it! Cats might not be nuts about affection but they dearly love attention!
8.Licking & Caressing ( Number 9 Will Surprise You ).
If your cat paws you, it’s his or her way of showing affection. If your cat constantly licks you, this is another positive sign. While pawing is a sign of affection, licking can be your cat’s way of saying they want to take care of you. If you watch a Mom Cat with her babies you will notice how they gently touch them with her paws and licking is giving them a bath. Your cat is letting you know you are both in the same family! Consider it a privilege!
If your cat goes outside, they will prey on smaller animals such as birds and mice. If they catch one, do not be shocked if they bring it home to you as a gift! Cats do not believe people feed themselves properly, so consider it your cat watching out for your health! Do not become angry with them, just pick it up and dispose of it when kitty has moved on elsewhere.
10.Jealousy – Thy Name Is Kitten!
There are many cats that are seriously jealous of your computer, cell phone, or just about anything that is taking attention away from them. Check out photos on the internet showing cats sitting or lounging on keyboard cat.
If your cat believes it’s time to tunnel between your legs, regardless if it’s inconvenient for you or not, it’s a sign of great affection. Do not scold him! Keep in mind, he would not do this to just anyone, only you!
12. Sulky cat
Cats have many different expressions and one of the most obvious is sulking. If you have been away for a few days and they have been left alone at home, they might give you the cold shoulder, it’s not beneath them. In reality, it’s their way of saying they have missed you.
Let’s talk about the inconvenience cats can put their owners through! Is there a worst time than deciding to sit on your lap while you are on the toilet??
14. Belly in the air
As cute as they might look, this is a very significant sign of how much they trust you! A cat’s belly is the most vulnerable spot on their bodies. If they lie on their backs showing you their bellies, this is unbelievable trust and love!
15. Come back home when you leave
Cats that go outside will usually sneak off at night but will return during the night because they miss you! Otherwise, they’d probably stay outside all night and then return in the morning.
16.The Act Of Kneading
Kneading is an incredible compliment. Cats knead like people kneading loaves of raw dough. The motion is the same as when they were kittens, being suckled by their moms.
17.Is Silence Golden?
If you tell your cat you love them and ask whether they love you, you might be confronted with silence. He does love you but cats and people do not express themselves the same way. Cats will show affection in a way that people do no understand. It’s more selective, mysterious, and subtle.
