Do you ever suspect that your feline buddy may be just a little bit spoiled? If so, you’re definitely not the only one! Our furry friends certainly have a way of wrapping us around their little paws. In fact, Fluffy may deliberately be manipulating you into pampering her. In this article from Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cy-Fair pet clinic, a local vet lists some super cute ways cats get us to spoil them.
The fact that Fluffy’s plaintive meows can definitely pull at our heartstrings may not be a coincidence. Kitties actually may have started meowing just to manipulate us. As it turns out, our feline pals’ meows sound quite a bit like the cries of a human baby. Not surprisingly, this has proven very helpful in getting us to offer food and cuddles.
The Paw Smack
Has your feline pal ever woken you up in the morning by smacking you gently with her paw? Fluffy certainly isn’t shy about letting us know she wants breakfast right meow!
The Snooze Fest
As we all know, cats are absolutely adorable when they are sleeping. Chances are, if Fluffy is snoozing in your lap, you may stay put, just to avoid disturbing Her Furry Majesty. We also sometimes have a hard time moving sleeping kitties off our books, chairs, and even computers. Do cats somehow manage to look even cuter than usual when they’re asleep?
The Leg Rub
Another way cats get us to feed or pet them is by rubbing against our legs. This may seem like just a cute and innocent sign of feline affection, but it’s also a way for kitties to get their scents on us, therefore ‘claiming’ us as their property. It also turns out that this is very effective way of getting us to feed them.
Cats have many wonderful qualities, but one of the cutest things about them is the fact that they actually vibrate with happiness. Some kitties even start purring as soon as you pick them up! Does Fluffy know that starting her motor is a great way to get you to pet her and cuddle her?
