Well theres a lot of cats that dont like shows of affection, which for the owner is sad
But you cant force a cat to do anything they dont want to.
I have 3 cats and Pepsi absolutely HATES with a passion being picked up
she squirms and pushes to get away. But she does like to be tickled and stroked, so thats what I do, sheÂ´ll walk up to me and flop on the floor and that means SHEs ready for a tickle
Dino is way to heavy to pick up
but he's a mommys boy and like to be near me all the time, usually leaning on me. So he gets his chin or head scritched then
Now Miss Moofi is altogther different, sheÂ´ll let you pick her up and give her huge snuggles
when shes fed up sheÂ´ll let you know, so I just let her go.
So do any of yours maybe come and sit near you ? try a gentle chin rub, I think you just have to watch their behaviour and go with their moods, youÂ´ll soon pick up when and what sort of affection they want
