What do cats think when we kiss them?


It is difficult to determine exactly what cats think when we kiss them, as we cannot directly communicate with them. However, cats have their own unique ways of interpreting and responding to human behavior. When you kiss a cat, their reaction may vary depending on their individual personality and past experiences.

Some cats may enjoy the physical contact and affection, while others may find it uncomfortable or stressful. Cats have sensitive whiskers and may be sensitive to the sensation of being kissed. They may interpret a kiss as a form of grooming or social interaction, similar to how they groom each other in their social groups.

It's important to pay attention to your cat's body language and cues when you interact with them. If they seem relaxed, purr, or show other signs of contentment, they may be enjoying the affection. However, if they show signs of stress, such as trying to move away, flattening their ears, or swishing their tail, it's best to respect their boundaries and find other ways to show them affection that they are more comfortable with, such as gentle petting or playing.

Remember, every cat is an individual, and their preferences and reactions may vary. It's important to observe and respect their boundaries to ensure a positive and comfortable interaction. 

I watch for body language and mood and sneak kisses anyway! Cats are to cute to resist stealing a few kisses 😘
