Take your cat to a Port Macquarie vet? It still loves you!

It’s no secret—cats can be jerks. In fact, that seems to be their go-to move 99 per cent of the time. While it may seem your feline friend detests your very existence, they actually really do love you (secretly, of course!). A scientist has recently theorised that cats see us humans as larger, clumsier cats—which could explain why they seem to think we’re bumbling idiots. If your cat keeps looking at you with disdain, don’t worry—they’re actually quite fond of you. Here’s how to tell if your cat secretly loves you, or if they really are just a big jerk.

So you’ve got a cat, and it’s always sliding breakable objects off tables, turning up its nose at fresh tuna, and scratching you after approximately 3 consecutive pats. Here’s how to tell if your cat actually likes you, so you know all of your adoration is not a complete waste!

1.Your cat seems to be wherever you are

Sure, it may be acting like it was there before you were, but if your cat is secretly following you around, it’s fond of you. Cats who like their larger human companions will make an effort to rub up against their legs or ‘accidentally’ trip them up as they walk past. So if your cat is making excuses to be close to you, you can count that as a sign of secret adoration.

2.They make eyes at you

No, your cat isn’t plotting to kill you (at least, not yet). If your cat maintains eye contact with you, this is actually a sign that they trust you. Cats only tend to make eye contact with people they’re comfortable with or know well—so if your cat is looking at you and slowly blinks while catching your eye, this is a feline version of a kiss. Can’t ask for much more love than that!

3.They roll around on their backs while you’re around

In a similar way to dogs, when cats roll on their backs they’re rendering themselves defenceless. By showing you their vulnerable tummy, they’re telling you that they feel comfortable, loved and protected by you. Cats are proud animals, so if they’re letting their guard down around you, this is a big sign they love you!
