Similar to imprinting, cats can form a deep bond to a single person in the family. Let's explore these signs!
Cats express affection by headbutting, a behaviour that demonstrates trust and helps to form bonds. It represents joy, comfort, and imprinting.
A cat that has imprinted on you will follow you around the home, sit on your lap, and even try to join you in the shower.
Cats just groom their closest pals, using their tongue as a comb. If your cat grooms you, it means they consider you as part of their family.
Cats seek protection from those they trust. If your cat curls up to you, it means they are safe with you and have imprinted as an act of affection.
In the cat world, displaying the tummy is an unguarded pose. If your cat shows you their belly, they trust you. But don't rub it! Allow them some room.
Cats bring home gifts to share their treasure. If your cat offers you gifts, it implies you have a special place in their heart.
Soft biting or nibbling, similar to how kittens nurse on their mother, is a gentle and careful manner for cats to demonstrate their love.
Cats knead as a symbol of love and comfort. It's an instinctual behaviour that begins in kittenhood and indicates that your cat feels safe with you.
If your cat pays special attention to you, reminds you of things on a daily basis, and appears to know your routine, it suggests they adore you.
Cats use smell glands to mark their territory. If a cat imprints you, they will claim you as their own by rubbing against you in devotion.
