cute-catMany people say that cats are independant and do not bond with humans. Independant to an extent, true but there is a strong bond that develops between cats and humans. I have two cats. My older cat Mollie is closer to me than my dog was. She is so attached that sometimes it’s scary. Even if I say nothing but feel sad, anxious or excited, she knows. She follows me around and does not let me out of her sight. She sits on my lap and looks up at me as if to say “it’s OK, I’m here to make you feel better.” She does make me feel better. Her affection and purring almost always calm me down. The human/animal bond between an owner and a cat starts at the beginning. This is when the kitten or cat enters their new home for the first time. People and cats share fun loving moments, quiet moments, affectionate moments, moments of concern and this relationship continues to evolve and mature. Eventually, the cat owner knows their cat inside and out.  Owners know the cats needs and wants, likes and dislikes and strengths and weaknesses.  On the other side, the cat knows what to expect and when and who to trust and when. Cats are very intuitive animals. Don’t let anyone tell you that they are not smart or they only want to be fed. This is a fallacy. Cats are intelligent animals that bond very strongly with humans. It’s not just the cat toys, food or other goodies that creates this bond!
