When you’re away from your cat either on a vacation or a business trip, you may miss your cat but does your cat miss you? While it’s obvious that dogs miss their owners, the research surrounding cats is far less obvious.

One sign that cats may miss you is when you return. If the cat purrs and stretches a lot, that could be a sign that your cat is at least willing to wake up to acknowledge your presence. If your cat rubs against you, that could be another sign. Then again, you cat might just be using your clothes as a napkin for its mouth.
