By the behavior of a domestic cat, one can determine its true attitude towards its owner, say cat experts and felinologists.
According to veterinarian Ekaterina Guseva, a cat is a fairly independent animal: if she is busy with her own business, you should not insist on her attention – this can achieve the opposite reaction. When the pet begins to bring toys, tries to lie down on the owner, purring loudly, he feels the need for communication.
A manifestation of love can be considered cases when a cat “butts” or rubs against legs and clothes, trying to mark, licks hands, touches with its paw to be stroked. Another sign of affection is following a person into another room, trying to follow a person into the bathroom or toilet: the animal does not want to sit alone, it likes to be close to the owner and watch his actions.
As felinologist Elena Klyusovets notes, there is even a special visual cat “kiss” – for this you need to look sideways at your pet from a distance of about half a meter, and then start blinking slowly. A loving cat will begin to respond – it will squint and also blink slightly. A similar reaction can be caused in your pet by speaking kindly to him in a low voice.
