Tumblr Explains Cats' Thoughts When Humans Kiss Their Heads

Have you ever kissed your cat on the forehead and thought: "Cats don't do that to each other, right? What does my cat think I'm doing when I kiss its head? Does it think I'm trying to eat it or does it understand that it's affection?" You're not the only one. We all wonder whether our pets understand us or not, considering how incredibly different we are. 

Today, tumblr is explaining to us one of those behaviors that we wonder so much about and - spoiler alert - they don't think we're eating them. Other than being hilarious, tumblr is also good at explaining things about animals, and the explanation tumblr gives for this one is an incredibly cute one. They also explain what cats think when we accidentally step on them, and it is somehow even more wholesome. 

tumblr thread explaining what cats think when we kiss them as well as what cats and dogs think when we accidentally step on them thumbnail includes a picture of a girl kissing a cat 'Kitties rub their heads against their chosen people as a method of scent marking, but not of ownership. Instead, they're getting their scent on you because they know that you're a family, but you smell "Funny" compared to them. They're trying to make you smell like their family.'

You mean this isn't how you always sit? Because it's how I always sit! I mean, sure, the location of my tail looks weird, but I can assure you that it's actually totally not awkward at all and is in fact quite comfortable! Are you judging me for my sitting posture right now? Because I feel like you're judging me for my sitting posture right now, and that's not very polite at all!

Mrrr, what? Oh, um, no, I wasn't sleeping! No, I was just... I was just trying to find a sense of "oneness" with this keyboard, because that's always what I do whenever I begin work on a new composition! Genius CAN come overnight, you know... it just usually involves a bit of sleeping and dreaming.

Hey now, who are you calling a sissy!? I'll have you know that this is in fact a medicine ball, and my struggle to push it up this hill stems not from a crippling lack of coordination on my part but rather from the fact that it weighs roughly twice what I do! Strong-man elephant is more like it, thankyouverymuch!

Listen, I could really use some help here, and I don't have time to offer you a lengthy explanation given my current state of being, but to synopsize for you, let's just say it involved a dare with the other ladies, three cans of fava beans and a hot-wired forklift. That's all you're gonna get out of me about it until you get me down, okay?
