Every cat has their own way of showing love. Some like cuddles or a lap to curl up on. Others show their love by not murdering you in your sleep – they bring you various dead creatures instead. But cats also have different ways in which they like to receive love.
Lola recently decided to give us another lesson just to make sure we remember how best to show our love to her. Actually the lesson was for my husband, as I was already up and doing things, hence being able to get these pictures of the lesson!
Lola is very fond of tummy rubs. Sometimes she likes ear rubs, or chin rubs, but on this particular day she decided to instruct husband on the best way to rub her adorable tummy.
As you can see above, she thoroughly instructed husband on proper hand positioning for the best possible tummy rubs.
Of course she made sure to let husband have plenty of time to practice. She noticed me watching and had to make sure I was picking up on the theory too.
Like any good teacher, Lola provided husband with a nice reward once he’d learned the lesson to her satisfaction. Positive reinforcement is key in teaching cats and humans alike!
Once the lesson was over she dismissed husband and decided to take a nap. Teaching is very hard work, after all.
How do your cats prefer to receive love? Do they give you lessons to make sure you do it properly?
