Anonymous asked: Does my cat actually love me or is it a farce?
I don’t know about your specific cat, but yes cats (like all animals with a developed mesocortex) are almost certainly capable of love. Recent MRIs of dogs showed very similar neural activity in response to seeing ‘their person’ as humans experience when seeing someone they love, and cats share all of the same brain structures. If your cat is always hanging out around/on you, and wants your attention, and pets, and to play with you, and purrs when you visit them and when you cuddle up together, then yes, I expect your cat loves you very much. Go give it a hug.
