How often do you stop in your busy, daily life to tell your cat that you love them? How often do you sit down with them for a few minutes everyday, pet and tell them how your day went? Or show that you care about them by brushing their fur or playing with them for 15 minutes a day?
If you answered “not very often” or “once a while”, stop what you’re doing right now and give them the love and attention that they deserve.
Sit with them and rub under their neck or scratch their heads( don’t you dare try rubbing their belly – unless you want your arm to be meat tenderized!).
Sit with them and tell them about your crappy day at work or how much fun you had with your friends today. Tell them all of the details because they will give you their full attention and listen to everything you have to say.
Play with them and spend all of their built up energy that they obtained while you were at work. They are a loaded spring and need it to be stretched!
Play with them for at least 15 minutes until they look tired and exhausted. Look at their eyes and give them three slow blinks. You are telling your cat that you love them. If they blink back, they are saying “I Love You Too”.
Give the love and attention that your cat deserves everyday because more than likely, they are giving you all of their love, 24/7.
