Cats are to some extent independent creatures, but like any creature, they also need love, care and affection to thrive. Your pet cat will love you in return if you pay attention to its preferences, learn its favorite treats, and provide affection and proper care.
How do you know your cat loves you? Cats have special ways of demonstrating their love: waiting for you patiently (or impatiently) at the door, following you from room to room, and “helping” with work or reading, or bringing you gifts.
If you are confused about how to show your cat that you love her? The following are 5 useful tips that will help you express your love to your Kittie, and also make her love you even more.
# 5 Cat & Mouse Games
Those claws aren’t there to only wreak havoc on upholstery. A cat is an extremely skilled hunter. Cats have a natural sense for combat with prey. And being a pussycat, your feline loves to hone those skills, especially with you as a training partner. Luckily, the solution for this is to buy a toy for your cat.
There are a number of cute, fun, and inexpensive toys that kitties can play with (make sure your kitties will be playing under your supervision, because strings can easily be ingested and cause medical emergencies) like toy mice, laser lights and strings.
These toys do not only keep your cat fit and healthy, but they provide you both with quality time that will enable your cat to love spending time with you.
#4 Being So Fresh, So Clean
Cats are fastidious creatures. They are always cleaning themselves and washing their fur (have you ever noticed how cats always smell good?).
In fact, they like everything to be clean. However, indoor cats depend on you to help keep the household neat, clean and smelling nice. However, their most important area of cleanliness is the toilet.
Fortunately for you, this is quite easy: you can either invest in a self-cleaning litter box, or scoop it up and clean the box by yourself daily. What cats love is a clean and odor-free litter box. This means everything to a cat, and she’ll love you for it.
#3 Purr-fect Snacks
Let’s face it, we all love to snack and we often choose what to eat, but your cat relies on you to choose for her when it comes to her snack time, that’s why you need to be responsible.
We don’t advise you to give your pet human snack food because it’s not good for cats. You can go to any of your local pet stores and choose attentively what your cat loves. Give your pet some lean protein and keep the dry pellet snacks to a minimum.
Believe me! Your cat will admire those freeze-dried pieces of chicken or lamb, and she’ll reward you by living a longer, healthier life full of love for you. You’ll also want to take into account the calories of the treats, and balance it out with a smaller portioned meal.
Putting on weight is a lot easier than taking it off, and obesity causes a lot of medical problems.
#2 Snuggle Time
Cats adore snuggling. They love to curl up and purr either on your lap or next to you. Try and find the time to snuggle when your cat is in “snuggle mode,” maybe a soft scratch behind the ears or a long petting session.
By snuggling your cat, you won’t only be rewarded by kitty love, but you’ll find yourself relaxing, which is always a good thing.
#1 Show Her the LOVE
It’s super easy to earn a cat’s love. But you need to do a few things to truly deserve it. These things are very easy to do. First, a cat needs a safe, warm, comfy place to sleep in. This is a must.
Second, a box, cat bed, or a comfy cushion is all a cat really needs (although it may depend on the breed). Also, a high quality diet, devoid of by-products, regular vet visits, and someone who is always kind and loving are the only things a cat needs to know they are truly loved.
And the payoff? Well! You’ll have a cute kitty who thinks you are the center of her universe!
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and show your cat how much you care and love her and bask in the love you get in return.
