    They are cute, they are loving, they make brilliant companions. There's common misconception that cats can't show love which is utter rubbish. I've had cats and dogs all my life and while both have been affectionate towards me, I've always found the affection from a cat to be more meaningful in a way. Dogs pretty much love everyone whereas with cats, they have to get to know you first and their signs of love are more subtle but still as every bit strong as what a dog feels for his human.

    Dogs lick your face, waggle their tails, cry when you leave but cats can have just as obvious signs of love too. All four of mine follow me everywhere around the house, sleep beside me, lick me (cats only groom other cats who they feel really close to so if they groom you, they feel like you are part of their family, they greet me as soon as I come into my house, they show their stomach to me (cats are most vulenrable when they lie on their back so they only lie down with their stomach exposed to those they really trust), they head bop me all the time and they knead on me. If those aren't signs of affection then I don't know what is :love: Yes, cats do have a 'I don't really give a **** about you' vibe to them at times but c'mon, we all do. Saying cats can't love or they are selfish all the time is just wrong. I had a feral cat that was abused by humans and lived on the streets for years but he was still capable of showing me love once I showed I was trustworthy.

    I believe cats can show love to humans and I sense it every day with my own 4. I don't care if that makes me a crazy cat lady or delusional. My cats are happy and I'm happy

    Proof cats can be loving. Here's one of mine comforting me the day our dog died last year

    Even if cats do show you love ( which again I highly doubt) it's not to the level and extent of dogs.
    Excellent rebuttal!! :clap2:

    I'm sensing some minor trolling, but regardless I'm willing to concede that whilst I've owned very affectionate cats, the dogs have been greyhounds which are known for not having such big personalities as other dogs. My cats are easily more loving and affectionate and fun, but it could be down to the respective breeds.

    Dogs are the most loving and cute and loyal creatures on the planet.
