Treasure

Mom said I am a treasure.  She said if those who have kitties are always loving to their cats from the first moment, they WILL see that love returned in a way that is recognizable.  An action, a look, a soft pawed touch, a headbonk, a smooch with a wet nosey, side rubs, tiny meows, almost hoarse sounding they are so low.

Our eyes will show our love many times when we are being cuddled and loved on.  Just look.  Or maybe when we come into the room where you are.  We may bring you our most favorite toy.  We may bring you  supper that we catch in the kitchen if mousies have come in from the cold.  Or at the window or outside.

We will groom you, smooth your too long furs, wash your face...purr to you...make sweet sounds, snuggle up with you as you are our family, and we will lie on you, get as close as possible and sleep with you.  A cat person will always be the recipient of our love and sense of family.  How can anyone ever say we are distant and independent and pass that untruth every day?  Perhaps they don't really look at their cats and see what is in front of them.  We are not dogs, and many expect that is the way we should be.  Appreciate what we ARE.


The look of love

Katie, what a beautiful post. We just rescued a new kitten and already we get the little tap on the foot to pick them up to sit in our lap. You are so right with everything. Thanks for sharing. Have a beautiful day.

We cats choose who we love carefully and with discernment. That's what makes us special.

This is so true, Katie san! And every cat loving purrson knows that :-) Kitties are loving and sweet in their own way. That’s such a beautiful photo of you! Look of love indeed!

Katie what lovely thoughts and words and you are ever so right. Some of us are more subtle with showing our love and devotion but we show it. I'm a very independent guy but both my Mom and Dad are aware of how much I adore them.....I'm a major head bonker/knee cuddler/soft meower/long looks across the room kind of guy. We are family. I know that you and your Mom have a special relationship too and I think for sure that we NEVER forget who gave us a comfortable home forever and ever.

Love, Teddy

You are right Katie. Cats show their love in many different ways, but it is always unmistakable.

Well said, KI. That look of love is universal across species. You explained it all so well. We doggies have a different but equivalent love language. The look is always the same though....

Love and licks,
Cupcake
