Valentine CatEvery day should be Valentine’s Day. Why? Because you should remember to tell your cats how much you love them every day. This expression of love should not be limited to just one day in the year. That’s wrong. Cats, like people, need to know they are loved.

I, for one, tell my cats how special they are every day. I make a point to pet each one of them before rushing out the door every morning to go to work. Whether they understand what I’m saying, or not, they know that I’m saying all good things about them. They look up with affection in their eyes and purr. They are telling me, I’m doing good-by them. I’m a good mummy  and they love me for it.

Love can be defined as An intense feeling of deep affection. Synonyms include affection, fondness, passion, or in the case of the verb, they include like, be fond or, fancy and adore.

That means a lot, and is a great way to start the day. Just like humans, we all should share our feeling and let our special felines know how much they mean to us. They, like humans, need to hear, not just surmise that we care.

It’s kind of strange how so many people are afraid of telling their humans they care. Still others overuse the word love, putting it at the end of every parting, whether it be for a day or week. It’s particularly disturbing when we hear of people who never told their parents or child how special they were. When people pass on, we often hear, I wish I’d told them how much I loved them. Everyone should take heed of this, because it is absolutely silly to take this kind of guilt to the grave and beyond.

This same philosophy should apply to our pets. Tell them you love them often, and they will love you unconditionally in return.

Do you tell your cats that you love them? Did you do something special for them on Valentines Day? Please share.
