Unlike dogs, cats won’t run up to the door when they hear you come in. Indeed, they might, but it’s most likely so they can run out of the house. In fact, some people would say cats are only affectionate when they want something. They’ll cuddle for sure, but only because they’re hungry, right? Wrong. Cats have huge hearts, but they’re so busy being dominant that they don’t always show it. However, cats are capable of a wide array of emotions like anger, anxiety, fear, and oh yes, grief! Just ask this kitty who got extremely emotional when she saw the photo of her owner, whom she lost years ago.

There’s an ongoing debate on whether animals are capable of experiencing the same emotions as us.

Cats aren’t human. They won’t react to situations the same way we do. It’s why we often don’t realize that pets are capable of feeling. But while their reaction may be different, they certainly have the same feelings we do, especially when it comes to those they care about.

Cats are capable of so many things, like making us laugh, and keeping pest control in the house in check.

They’re also capable of longing for us when we’re gone. So next time you leave the house to go to work. Make sure you come back and give your cat some TLC because chances are, they’ve been missing you.
