Cats have a bad reputation for being cold, aloof, and grumpy. Unlike dogs, they tend to appreciate personal space and like to be alone all the time. If you chase them to hug and cuddle them when they don’t want to, they will run away and hide. But sometimes, you’re more likely to see them behaving in sweet and cute ways. In fact, cats do actually show love and affection to their humans and their affection is far more nuanced than you think.
There’s still a misconception about cats not showing love to their owners, so we decided to collect 25 pics of cats who are sweet and affectionate to prove that cats are subtle creatures and do love their humans. Through these pics, we would like to highlight the sweet side of these furry friends. Scroll down to check for yourself!
