The iconic feline purr doesn't just sound adorable; it's a sign of contentment and affection. Your cat purrs around you, it's like they're saying, "I feel safe and loved with you."

Purrfect Expression

Cats use their heads as gentle battering rams to show affection. Those head-butts and cheek rubs are their way of marking you with their scent, claiming you as their own.

This kneading behavior is a leftover instinct from kittenhood when they kneaded their mother's belly for milk. It's a sign of comfort and trust.
