How Cats Say "I Love You"

In the News

I am a dog owner , i also owned cats too in the past , and i know if you yawn in front of your dog , or feign a yawn you are giving them a sign of affection

You sometimes see them yawn back at you

It is slightly different with cats , blinking at them is apparently the way to show them affection, and if they return the blink then they are showing it to you

But you have to be careful with cats , dont stare at them without blinking, that is a sign of aggression , this also applies to dogs

Just be careful you don't mix the two up, yawning at the cat and blinking at the dog, who knows what they will do

Mine rub noses. One puts his paws on me if I sit next to him. His sister snuggles into me. She only does that with me.

I just assumed our dog was tired when she yawned at us. I grew up with cats, can't say they ever blinked at us. Rubbing against us and sitting on our laps were more open signs of affection.

I agree with you in most part but there are so many ways love can be shown between cat, dogs and their humans. For example if a cat give you a gentle-ish bite it is actually a sign of affection. Blinking by cats is a way of letting you know everything in the immediate environment is safe. If you notice a cat outside with it's eye's wide open it is letting other animals know of danger. This works by light reflecting off of their eyes and is easier for others to spot from a distance. If a cat brings you a mouse of bird from the garden it is a sign of respect as it's bringing you food not trying to disgust you. Alternatively you might think this is a load of old humbug and your beloved pet is a bit of a so and so lol.

I have two older cats and the blinking is true of them both. One of my cats had kittens five weeks ago. All different personalities already.

I've had experience of lots of different cats and their personalities vary a lot in how they behave and show affection. My current cat Conker is not too pleased with me as he has had his teeth done and I have to give him a tablet twice a day for five days so not getting much affection at the moment from him. I'm getting very disapproving looks.
