A cat’s love language is a hard one to solve.
Do you want presents? Should I tell you how much I love you with my words? Can I pet you, or will you bite me?
Sometimes cats act like they want to be petted. They’ll lean up against your leg, meow, and bat their little cat eyelashes. But then when you go in to give them some attention they act like you’re trying to kill them.
But this woman’s cat is very clear – he loves a good petting!
And this video of him demanding love has brought smiles to faces all over the world.
Laura has a precious little black and white feline who isn’t shy about asking for attention. While sitting on the couch, she showers him with affection and lots of petting. You can see he’s having the time of his life!
But then she stops, and the little guy gives her a quick moment to relax before turning around to look at her like, “ummm… excuse me? We’re not done here.”
The cat gently extends a paw towards Laura, as if to remind her that he’s still sitting there. He then waits patiently, looking up at her expectantly.
She looks at him, pretending she doesn’t know what he wants and shrugs like he’s being crazy. Then she looks away from him, at the camera instead and pretends she doesn’t notice her kitty staring right at her.
He’s not loving that, and is desperate to communicate his needs. So he tries again – just a polite tap on the shoulder.
“I’m just a cat, standing in front of a girl, asking to be petted.”
Laura acts as if she’s just figured it out, “ooooh”. And starts petting the furry guy on the head.
He is so pleased with himself! He’s finally figured out how to get what he wants from his silly human.
Surely she’ll never stop petting him now, right?
She’s hitting all the right places, behind the ears and under the neck.
You’ve never seen a happier cat before in your life – he’s on cloud nine.
It seems he’s forgiven her for the time that she stopped petting him. This was all worth it, she knows exactly what to do to make him happy now.
Even this strange little chokehold move seems to be hitting the spot!
But then she stops abruptly and it’s back to square one.
The little cat can’t believe it! “Come on Mom, I didn’t say you could stop!”
He’s even flicking his tail back and forth a little bit with disappointment.
This time, instead of tapping her shoulder, he tries to boop her on the nose.
She gives him a “how dare you!” look, but it’s obvious she thinks he’s the cutest little thing in the world. She holds off for another few seconds just to be difficult, but gives in again and showers him with love.
He’s won again.
The video gathered more than 18 million views, all adoring cat-lovers.
And some left hilarious comments about the polite little black and white kitty.
It’s true, no cat in a tuxedo can be running around like a little monster – they’re too formal.
And I’m not sure how many cats and/or penguins this viewer has seen before, but they’re not wrong.
