Cats show their love in many different forms that may go unnoticed

The love language of a cat is very unique, making them especially loving animals
Kannon Garcia
Cats show their love in numerous ways.

Like humans, cats have different love languages: purring, kneading, and head-butting. Cats often go under the radar because many people are unaware of their love languages, giving them the wrong impression.

Cats love attention and affection; you may see this when petting a cat. Cats tend to purr when being petted; this is simply because they are enjoying the attention. Purring is one of their only ways to communicate with their owners. Purring could signal many things, but for the most part, they are just enjoying themselves.

Kneading, or making bread, is another very important love language for cats. This also tends to be the most confusing love language for cat owners to understand. The reasoning behind this is very broad; there are many reasons why cats tend to “make bread” or knead.

Most of the time, they are making themselves comfortable; however, it could also be them getting ready for rest or marking their territory. This is a very normal occurrence for cats.

Cats often head-butt you; this may seem like the strangest love language of them all, but I find it to be the most adorable. When a cat head-butts you, it’s often them marking you with pheromones and bonding with you. This means they feel safe with you and have marked you as a safe person. The love language of a cat can be heartwarming. Cats are one of the most affectionate animals. Their love languages are unique and make cats stand out altogether. With a better understanding of these languages, we can appreciate cats a bit more.
