I was told for years by my best friend that male cats were more loving than females.
There has been in a cat...or more...in my life from the day I was born.
All those cats were female, so I never had an experiance with male cats.
The cat I was raised with was the biggest sweetheart in the world.
Then I got Maggie, again another lover.
After Maggie passed away, I called this friend because I knew that a pregnant female had shown up on her doorstep several months before I asked if the kittens were ready and she said they were.
Two females and a male, she tried to talk me into taking the male again telling me how sweet male cats are.
I wouldn't hear of it, I'd always had female cats and they'd always been very loving.
So I took both of the females, Gracie loves to cuddle and wants to sit on your lap loves to be carried around and her Sister Lizzie could care less if she even looks at you...as long as you feed her that's all she cares about.
Took in a stray female...Annabelle...she's not fond of woman...we believe she was abused and the abuser was a woman, she LOVES men.
She cuddles with my Husband, she'll let me pet her IF she comes to me.
I can't make any moves to pet her or pick her up, she runs away.
Enter Elliott another stray and our first male cat.
I almost didn't take him in because he was male...I was SO scared that he was going to spray all over my house... we moved into our new home and three days later I saw him and loved him instantly...he's pure white and made me think so much of our sweet Maggie.
I came here looking for advice about my fears of him spraying and the fact that I couldn't get him out of my head...I guess I just wanted someone to tell me to follow my heart and bring him in and that he wasn't going to spray my entire house.
He had some issues with the girls at first and especially with Gracie..all those things have resolved themselves.
BUT, he is a big pile of mush.
He loves everyone, he's always sitting on someones lap or wanting someone to pick him up, he does the headbutt thing.
He's an absoulate doll.
So basically I wrote a book to tell you that I don't think that males are necessarily more loving than females I think it just depends on the personality of the cat.
