Does Your Pet Love You? 7 Ways Your Fur-Babies Show Love For You

1. Your Kitty Loves To Groom You

Mother cats groom their kittens from the moment they’re born, so being licked was one of your kitty’s very first feelings of being cared for. Sibling kitties who are raised together often groom each other throughout their lives. So if your kitty is licking you, she’s showing her love for you.

2. Roughhousing The Doggy Way

While it seems to come at the most inopportune times, our dogs sometimes get playful and try to wrestle with us. This is their natural way of playing! If you’ve ever watched your pup play with another dog, you’ll recognize he’s offering the same behavior to you. Doing a little wrestling with your pooch is certainly safe and fun, and will even give you a new game to play to keep your relationship strong!

 


3. Sleeps And Spoons With You

Dogs are pack animals, and in the wild wolves and other canids sleep huddled together in packs. This helps keep them warm and help them feel safe. It’s also a way for your dog to show you he cares. He wants to be near you, and this is his natural way of showing you he feels comfortable and sees you as family.

4. Cats Got That Bunting Feeling

 If your cat rubs against your cheek or bumps heads with you, he’s leaving his scent on you. This is called ‘bunting’ and it’s a form of feline affection. Bunting is reserved for a cat’s most favorite creatures – including the human he considers his own!

 


 

5. Wagging Of The Tail

Although tail wagging isn’t always a sign of happiness, it’s generally displayed towards dog owners as a means of affection. When a dog is wagging his tail loosely, and his body language is showing other signs of comfort and excitement, it’s safe to say he’s very happy you’re around!

 


6. Those Cats’ Love Eyes

 Cat eyes are quite large. In fact, if your eyes were proportionately as large as your cat’s, they’d stretch all the way across your face! If your kitty puts his face close to yours and stares with huge, wide open eyes at you, then blinks slowly he’s showing you how much he loves and trusts you.


7. Let’s Play Follow The Leader

Dogs will follow their owners for a variety of reasons, including their knowledge that you’re typically the source of their food and shelter. But dogs are also pack animals that enjoy being with their families, and following you around is just another clue that your pup likes to stick by your side because he loves you. So even though she might get in the way from time to time, it’s important to remember that she simply just wants your company.
