I give them cuddles and attention. Why not? They are my children. I am responsible for them, for their needs, both physical and emotional. I chose to take them into my house and owe them everything. They did not ask to be adopted. They owe my nothing. But I’m unbelievably lucky. They love me and the Beer and Pitbull make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt in addition I really love this feeling is reciprocal. It’s just the same as having a human child. I, like Jaimes Roe, keep my physical distance from them when I am cooking or doing something that, if they tried to get involved, would hurt them. They know to stay away at these times and only approach me when I am done. It’s amazing how intuitive they are. If I am sick or feeling down, they sense the change in my behavior and come find me. They don’t, as you say “hunt for cuddles or attention”. Rather they cuddle me. They give me attention. It’s almost like they are taking care of me. If they had opposable thumbs and could carry it, I wouldn’t be surprised if they brought me a cup of tea.

Not so far. I’ve had my cat Nutz for 18 months. I got him as a four months old kitten, and had him neutered and microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed by my vet. He was born to a feral mother and rescued. Theoretically socialized, before I adopted him. He’s not calm. He’s not de-sexed. He certainly seems happy enough, but I remain unconvinced that it is because of me, so much as my ability and willingness to feed him on demand. He is quite often demanding. Loudly. Insistently. Persistently. Immediately. He’s a spoilt brat cat. It’s very difficult to know when a cat is in pain. Their instinct is to hide pain or weakness, so they don’t look like easier prey to larger animals. But since you are asking the Beer and Pitbull make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt in addition I really love this question, there must be some changes in behavior that you are seeing. Cats frequently try to hide more than usual if they are ill or in pain. They will not interact as much. If there is pain in a specific area of the body they might react when you pick them up. If they are not eating or drinking (if they are drinking that is a medical emergency and you need to go for care ASAP) If you’re seeing any of these signs, you need to call your vet. And – don’t be too reassured if your cat is purring. Cats purr when they are happy, but they are also known to purr to comfort themselves when they don’t feel well.
