Heartwarming Stories Of Cats Showing Affection To Their Humans

People who say cats are cold are people who we would bet have never had a cat of their own. It's true, sometimes it can take a cat a long time to warm up to its human, but with enough love and patience, most cats will show you the affection that you so deeply want. Cats are not cold at all, they just have funny ways of being compassionate sometimes. 

Other times, cats will show their humans so much love, we will have no choice but to feel incredibly blessed and thankful. And when our purrfect ICanHasCheezburger Facebook users shared such stories with us, we were so amazed, we had to share them with you as well. Get the tissues our, friends, because this collection has got some tear-jerkers. 

Facebook comments about cats being affectionate thumbnail includes one Facebook comment 'Font - Mary Gillis I had just lost my 15 year old kitty to a sudden illness who I so dearly loved. I was in bed crying my heart out and our other cat who never once came on the bed, came up and snuggled against me purring up a storm. It was like she knew he was gone and wanted me to know it was going to be alright. ODS 18 Like · Reply · Message 1d'

Pics Capturing The Wholesome Yet Funny Reality Of Living With Pets

Living with animals comes with quite a few challenges. From having our cats causing endless chaos to having our dogs bringing about absolute pawndemonium, having pets in the house can be hard. But, of course, it's worth it. 

No matter how many times we will wake up with our dog's paw right on our faces or how many times we will have our cat run over our stomachs when we least expect it like a heckin' elephant, no matter how many struggles we go through, having pets is the most amazing decision we have all ever made. And feeling our pets' love towards us is always worth it in the end, no matter how many shenanigans precede those moments of wholesomeness.

Wholesome Cats Finding Comfort In Their Humans (Tumblr Posts)

We all know of that terribly untrue myth of cats being cold and unaffectionate. We, as cat people, know that it's wrong. We know that cats can be incredibly affectionate and loving, it's just that sometimes it takes a cat time to warm up to you, but when a cat chooses its human, it is the best, most heartwarming thing in the world. 

What's even more amazing is that when cats choose you, they don't only give affection to you, they expect certain things back from you as well. No more just food, water, and a place to clean, now, they will expect you to protect them as if you were any other cat. These tumblr posts are proof of just that. And goodness knows that we are more than happy to give them the love and protection that they are asking for. 

tumblr posts of cats feeling safer around their humans | thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - cyanide-latte Follow Can confirm this is true of my four-year-old cat. We rescued her when she was not quite half-a-year-old, and she was severely underweight and almost dead from starvation. Ever since then, she gets agitated if she can't see either my husband or I when she eats, and she will do anything to get our attention. Nim definitely feels safer when we're there to watch her eat.'

Pics Capturing Why Two Cats Are Much Better Than One

We love cats, we feel like it's important to announce that at the beginning of this list. We know, we know, cats can be a whole lot to deal with - from unexpected bursts of energy at 3am, to making sure that your fresh laundry is covered in cat hairs instantly to trying to steal your food (and succeeding sometimes). 

But at the end of the day, these little felines bring so much joy into our lives. And you know what, as cat people with no sense of self-preservation and a desire to adopt every cat out there, we have come to the conclusion that two cats are better than one. For proof, you don't need to go any further than these picture. Double the trouble = double the love. Duh.

Never have we imagined that ravens can be such affectionate and adorable animals. They get such a bad rep - so scary, don't go near them. Loki though, Loki is the most adorable raven we've ever seen in our lives. He's comes when he's called, he preforms tricks, he responds when talked to, and he has the deepest voice we've ever heard - the last thing we expected was for him to sound like that. 

Birds are honestly so underrated - they can be so playful and wholesome. This is not the first time that birds have taken over the hearts of the people on the internet, they've done it many times. For example, when birds speaking in different accents went viral on twitter. We love birds, and now, we love ravens too.

Every cat owner knows that being bitten once or twice is part of the deal when getting a cat. To non-cat people, that might seem very strange, even scary, but cat owners understand that a cat bite is a love bite. It's true, cats bite when angry, but they also bite because they feel affection. Gently holding your finger between your teeth - cat bites are a sign of love. 

Inspired by a poem of the same name written by yours truly, the talented Tracy Thorne - and her cat - shine again, bringing us the latest cat theme song that will definitely be stuck in your head for a while. Listen to the previous songs Tracy has performed for us:  it wasn't me and i is fierce

Ways Cats Show Love To Their Humans (Facebook Comments)

Unfortunately, cats have a reputation for being cold-hearted. It's hard to say that it's unearned - they're quite aloof, sometimes it takes years until they finally warm up to you. And sometimes, people just don't understand the special ways in which they express love. You gotta learn how to read the signs, the same way that you do with humans. Different creatures express love in different ways. 

Cats are not cold hearted at all, and our cat-loving ICanHasCheezburger Facebook users have decided to prove it by sharing stories of their cats showing them love with us. And the stories were so wholesome, we simply had to share it with you as well. Bask in the love everyone, and if the love stings a little, that's just part of having a cat.

Big Bad Wolves Being Their Affectionate Goofball Selves

Wolves are dangerous, yes, we know. But we're animal lovers, so we know better than to fall for the stereotype of the big bad wolf. Wolves may be dangerous, but so are adorable big wild cats, and we think they're cute too. Amazingly, the big bad wolf is incredibly affectionate, and in general, wolves are the biggest goofballs ever


Wolves are basically overgrown doggos, so it totally makes sense that we love them so much. We can only hope to one day meet a wolf friendly enough who will actually give us permission to pet its belly. That would be a total dream come true.

Animals Hugging Each Other Reminding Of The Good In The World

January 21st is the actual annual date of National Hug Day. Although frankly, if we are being honest, this should be a much more common sort of day. Kind of like a Friday. Hugging should happen more often and amongst more people (only if the people actually agree to it, of course- consent is important!). When animals hug, it bursts into our brains as if we are being hugged ourselves. It is so sweet and heartwarming, that I'm pretty much convinced we should make it a regular holiday.

We have here raccoons, dogs, cats, reptiles, seals, dolphins, and bunnies! My goodness, are there any animals even missing? There are mixed-species hugs and homogenized-species hugs. We can learn a thing or two from these darlings. Love is a powerful thing and these little guys show us exactly why.

When people say that opposites attract, they are talking specifically about this deaf puppy and this 2-year-old girl, we are certain of it. Never have you seen love  stronger than the love between this little human and her doggo. The connection was instantaneous and so heartwarming. For some reason, as the video says, this "girl who can't stop talking , and the guy who can't hear anything" became unlikely best friends right away.

Happily, this love was strong enough for the mom to see it and know that it was meant to be. So, what started as dog sitting for two weeks turned into this awwdorable puppy finding its forever home with an amazing, loving family. And that's all we could ever want for it.

Huskies are known to be the biggest, goofiest fluffballs. They seems to be aware of how huge they are, and because they love their humans so much, they make sure to be gentle and careful with them. Of course, they can't help but be overprotective sometimes, exactly because they love their humans that much, and trying to nap with them can prove to be the most wholesome and entertaining challenge. 

It's worth every second though, of course, because as much as our dogs love us, we love them about a million times more. You know, sometimes being suffocated by fur is totally worth it for the cuddle time.

Heartwarming Stories Of Cats Showing Affection (Facebook Comments)

This post is for the people in the crowd who truly believe that cats are not affectionate. We, cat owners, know that they are wrong of course, but the stereotype prevails. It's true that cats show love differently than humans and differently than dogs, but they still show it. You just need to know what you're looking for. 

Sometimes, a cat will show you love by blinking slowly while looking into your eyes, other times, they'll do it by showing you their bootie. And sometimes, it's a lot more straightforward than that - when they come to you, asking for physical affection in the form of cuddles. And our amazing Facebook users shared stories of just that which were so adorable we had to share them with you too. 

Facebook comments about cats being affectionate thumbnail includes a picture of a cat hugging a dog and one Facebook comment 'Organism - Tamra Paulsen-Mosher My cat Milo hugging the doggo super tight during an thunder storm because he knows she's afraid.
