Whoever started the rumor that cats are not affectionate clearly has never owned a cat. Cats are very affectionate - they just choose their preferred times for being affectionate, and they're picky with who they love, just like we are. It's part of what makes us love them so much. When a cat is affectionate with you, you've earned it, and for that, it feels so much better.
This cat who went viral on imgur is one who is so affectionate, his owner ItsMoni is even calling him overly affectionate with no perception of personal space. And the internet, as have we, has fallen in love with this cat. Because it's almost as wholesome and heartwarming to watch a cat love its owner as it is to be loved by one yourself.

"Anyone else have an overly affectionate cat? Even if you don't, I would love to hear about your cat (or dog or whatever pet). What are they like? Are they an asshole? What's your favorite thing about them?"
