On Mysterious Cat Behavior -- 5 Ways Cats Show Affection and More


Dogs express their love and affection very openly through tail-wagging, nuzzling, pawing and kisses. Cats are a lot more subtle, no surprise there.

Here are some common signs of cat affection from Decoding How Cats Show Affection | Petside:

  • Eye blinks: When a cat meets a stranger for the first time, they give them an unblinking stare. They are wary. Cats that feel trust and affection for a human often blink at them.

  • Grooming: When your cat allows you to groom him, this is another sure sign that he trusts you and feels cat affection for you.

  • Head rubbing: When a cat rubs her face on a human, she is using scent glands on her cheeks to mark her territory. this can both mean affection, and that she is claiming the human in question as her "property."

  • Belly display: This sign of cat affection is one of the most profound acts of trust a cat can bestow on a human.

  • Kneading: A cat kneading against your body is an act of sheer contentment, trust and true adoration
