ARS_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_300x250

Cat owners know that kitties form strong social bonds with their caretakers and return the love that’s shown to them, even if it’s sometimes hard to spot. You can earn your cat’s trust and build a closer relationship by showing them affection in the language that they understand best, from playing together to learning the subtle ways your cat says, “I love you.” Here are some of the ways you can let your kitty know how much you care about them.

8. Play Together

Playtime is double fun for your cat when you get involved. The flick of a feather wand or a darting laser pointer provides the unanticipated action that cats crave and a more realistic approximation of hunting. Alternate the toys you use so they don’t get bored of stalking the same old stuff.

7. Share Down Time

Sometimes your cat just wants your company. Show your kitty you want them around by placing a cat bed or inexpensive cushion near your own favorite hangouts, such as by your desk or kitchen table.

6. Give Your Cat a Room With a View

Indoor cats live longer, safer lives, but they often miss out on the action of the great outdoors. Create a special window perch just for them with a cushion for lounging. Your cat will award you bonus points if you put a bird feeder within sight.

5. Pamper Them With Soft Grooming

Grooming can be a pleasurable experience for many cats, provided you use the right tools and a soft touch. Cats that dislike wire combs may prefer a flexible rubber brush instead. Offer treats during grooming so they associate the experience with positive rewards, and keep sessions short to avoid exhausting their patience.
