Every cat has its own personality, that's true. Some like their bellies rubbed, some don't, some rub up against your legs, other don't, but one thing that we've always wondered is if it really is true that all cats don't like having their paws touched. Well, this owner whose cats we've lost count of decided to test that theory.

Cutely enough, she found out that some of them are totally fine letting their paws be held. Others... need snack incentives. You can tell how much all of these cats love their owner looking at the trust they put in her though, and really, that's the most beautiful thing of all.

Cats Showering Humans With Support By Holding Their Hands

We've heard a lot of people ask "why do cats not like having their paws held?" There doesn't seem to be a concrete answer for that. Some people think it's a matter of taking away a cat's defense mechanism, others say that it's because cats' paws are very sensitive. But honestly, I've never had this problem with my cat, she's always been perfectly content to let me hold her paw or put her paw on my palm. 

So, we went on the hunt to find out if some cats do like holding hands with humans. To our absolute heart-melting delight, we found out that they do. And today, we bring you the photographic tumblr and twitter proof. 

tweets and tumblr posts pictures of cats holding hands with humans thumbnail includes two pictures including a cat looking into the camera with its palm placed on a person's hand and another of a cats black and white paw lying on a human's fingers 'Puppy - Susan Calman @SusanCalman My cat gently placed his paw on my hand. We're now holding hands/paws watching TV. Like one does.'

From reddit user abernha3: "Little Andrew was my junior. He was 15 and a half and loved everyone, but just got old and sick over the last year. He purred everyday of his life and when he lost that, I knew it was time. Always sad to lose a friend." :(

Holding paws is much better than paddling through this life alone.
