Cats love in unusual ways.
It’s one of the biggest things that I love about cats — that they are not as overtly affectionate as you would expect a dog to be. They have this attitude about them that makes me feel a real kinship with them. You have to earn their love and their trust and when you do — you feel all the more loved from them.
Where dogs may cover your face with kisses, bark at you affectionately when you walk in the door and wag their tail when you talk — cats can be a lot more subtle.
From a dead mouse to big dilated eyes — there are some easy signs that your cat is giving you some love, you just have to know what to look for!
