How to show your cat your affection

9 March, 2018
Cats are much more independent pets than dogs. But the fact that they do not need constant cuddling and petting from their family does not mean that they do not enjoy it just as much. There are cats that seek out human contact more often and others that only do so on a few occasions. Still, even the most independent cat needs to be shown affection. For cats, love is shown in small gestures that are learned little by little. Communication between cats and humans is complex, but once we learn[...]

Besides, you humans entertain that odd belief that what’s best for us is eating sardines and drinking milk, when the truth of the matter is that we cats are hunters and are much fonder of meat. Mind you now, just like you humans, not everything sets well with us, making it hard for us to digest.
