Below are six ways cats show love for their human companions:
1.) Holding eye contact: If your sweet kitty catches your gaze, possibly followed by a soft blink, this is most likely an indication of love and trust.
2.) Purring: This may be an obvious one, but a steady purr is a sure sign your cat is content in your presence.
3.) Paw kneading: Purring is often accompanied by paw kneading, and is one way your cat might try to nuzzle up to you.
4.) Napping on or next to you: Most cats have a large variety of options when it comes to napping locations. If your feline companion chooses your lap over the comfy cat bed or armchair, take it as a compliment.
5.) Head butting: This one may seem a little silly, but if your cat looks down and leans her head into you, this is basically the equivalent of a hug.
6.) Bringing “gifts” to you: A dead mouse may not be the surprise you’d like to come home to, but cats are very proud of their hunting skills. Sharing their prey means they value your friendship.
