Kitty Love is In the Air!

The idea that cats are antisocial and aloof just isn’t true. They may not show their love in the same way that humans or dogs do, but the love is still there. Cats do a lot of things in their own unique ways. Any cat owner can attest to the fact that cats often show affection to their owners. Cats can bond with each other and other pets too!

Every relationship a cat has is different. Sometimes they are very bonded to each other, other times the simply tolerate living together. They are a bit like humans in that way! Cats that come from the same litter of kittens (and stay together) seem to have the easiest time developing tight bonds.

Manna and Dexter have become close despite not being littermates. It makes me very happy that they love each other! Not long after Dexter came to live with us, Manna accepted him like he was her own kitten. Cats are truly amazing! How do I know that they love each other? Here are a few of the affectionate things they do to one another:

  • Mutual grooming
    Manna grooms Dexter and vice versa. Sometimes it is just a ploy to start a wrestling match, but many times they are just being affectionate.
  • Cuddling
    It isn’t unusual to find Manna and Dexter sleeping close together.
  • Play 
    These two love to play games together. I have seen them both start games of chase and whappy paws (no claws, of course).
  • Sharing Food
    Not all bonded cats do this, but Manna and Dexter like to eat out of the same dish together at the same time. Being how sensitive the issue of food can be for a cat, I would think that so closely sharing this precious resource would be a true sign of love.
  • Seeking each other out.
    Manna and Dexter are both good at hiding. I have seen them looking for each other when they want to play. Manna even has a special meow that causes Dexter to come running.

I finished the word search in 2 minutes and 24 seconds. Can you do it faster? ProProfs (the service I use for the word searches) says that they will be fixing the scoring very soon. Currently, you are receiving points per word that you find rather than by how quickly you find them. That is why everyone always gets the same score.
