Sometimes, you may wonder whether your kitty actually likes you or not, but you obviously need to handle the issue with some finesse. Sure, you can come right out and ask her, but unless you’re a cat whisperer or fluent in cat-speak, meows are pretty much all you get.
Short of seeing her reaction when it’s feeding time, is there any other way to tell whether she’s really feeling the love? Here are some signs the love of your life is showing you that she’s actually totally into you.When she’s being a flirt
If your feline head butts you on your forehead, face or other body part, that means she’s crazy mad — for you. They hit on you because they truly have feelings for you.
Being at the receiving end of what is actually known in kitty-verse as “head bunting” is truly is an extraordinary privilege. During these intimate physical moments, your kitty leaves facial feel-good pheromones, marking you as her own and as a part of her family — so receive these hits with pride.When she shows herself to you
By this, we mean showing off her taut, round and soft tummy. Like many animals, cats do not display their most vulnerable spot to just anyone; they only show their tummies voluntarily to those they trust the most.When she tells you
Cats are able to emit a wide range of vocalisations — from the aggressive hiss to the needy meow. If your kitty purrs, especially the sort that is a one-of-a-kind full body rumble, it means that she’s declaring her affection and attention for you.When she stares at you
By “at you”, we mean deep into your eyes. If she casts a slow blink after locking eyes with you, you’ve just earned yourself a kitty’s kiss. If you’re on the receiving end of this rare, delicate sign of affection, be sure to return the love by mimicking the behaviour so she knows the feelings are mutual.When she has a tail for you
Instead of batting her eyelashes, the feline tail acts like a mood barometer. If your kitty twitches the tip of her tail, this is a tell-tail sign that she’s totally into you.When she paws at you
Does your pretty kitty have trouble keeping her paws off you? If your answer is yes, it is a strong sign of fondness and in some cases, even nostalgia. When your cat kneads you, it is really her way of displaying the love she developed as a young kitten when nursing from her mother.When she brings or leaves you gifts
Don’t be surprised if she leaves you love tokens such as toys — or small, dead animals. It really just means she prioritises you over everyone else.
Albeit their domestication, cats are natural hunters and sharing their “game” is a sign of their esteem for you; thinking of you as family and wanting to provide for you. If you’re the kind to be easily grossed out, here’s a modest tip: Like all gifts, it’s the thought that counts. Accept it politely.When she chases after you
If she’s always “in your space” — or more specifically, your legs — that means she clearly enjoys your company and wants to be close to you. Not wanting to leave your side and rubbing against you is how your furry feline is telling you that she’s very fond of you.
