We each cherish the love and affection shown to us by our cats every single time it happens, so we truly can imagine the feeling that this person is experiencing. We hope many, many more cuddle sessions are in your future, you lovely human.

    Font - creepiebeastie 3 days ago We've had our two cats for a little over 4 years now.

I remember seeing him shaking so much their cage was shaking. He was so scared of everything. He is so different now and we are still amazed by it.

    Hair - Slatedtoprone 3 days ago My cat only does it at night while I'm sleeping so I'm told. He sits on my chest and quietly meows in my face before resting for 20 minutes than jumping off. I guess he prefers me unconscious.

    My lovely cat took to trusting me rather quickly, but she has always had trouble trusting people beside me. After living with her for years, everyone I live with is stunned whenever she comes to them of her own volition - with no snacks as bribes, calling me over to see or snapping pictures to send to me. It is always amazing to see her being so affectionate with others.

    Font - tango421 3 days ago The wife and I do this too. Our cats aren't cuddlers but will occasionally stick to one of us or call one of us specifically. Gloating occasionally happens. The only time we don't really gloat when "chosen" by one of our cats is when the chosen is sad, injured, ill, or depressed. They provide comfort too

    Human body - mostlybadopinions 3 days ago I got an anti-cuddler cat. She likes to be close, just no touching. But once in a blue moon, she'll randomly sit on my lap for 15 minutes, and every time it's like the best god damn feeling in the world.

    Font - jaodositio 3 days ago As a person who never had any cats, how does this giving some space work? Reply Give Award Share Report Save hoverton 3 days ago Basically leaving them alone and letting them come to you. Don't be pushy, don't forcibly hold them, etc. It takes some cats a long time to warm up to you. I worked with a stray that showed up at the house for months before he let me touch him.
