Many cat owners believe their cat loves them, but knowing the cynical nature of a cat’s personality, it’s possible that cats are playing us for the suckers they think all humans must be. So if you want to know if your cat truly loves you, look for certain signs.

If a cat rubs its head against you, that means it’s marking you with its scent and should be seen as a huge compliment, even if your cat does wipe snot and saliva across your leg. Also look at your cat’s tail. An upright tail means your cat is happy to see you and waving it like a flag. By knowing the signs of your cat’s affection, you can hopefully tell if your cat truly loves you or not.
