Smile Do your cats greet you when you get home?

Both my kitties always greet me with happy meows and head bumps whenever I get home, even if I haven't been gone for long, and even if my fiance has been home the whole time I was gone. I love it. It's so nice to get home and have two adorable little mammals greet you at the door. Coda usually starts meowing as soon as she hears me put the key in the lock. So cute!

This is a behaviour that I know is often associated with dogs, but it seems common enough with cats as well. Do your kitties seem happy to see you when you get home, even if it isn't dinner time yet?

nope... we have staircase that i can see from the front door so sometimes I see Josie on the top of the stairs looking at us coming in.

But I have my cats only for little over a month so hopefully one day they will be happy that I am home!

I've only had Cal for about a month, and he's already a greeter. But he could be imitating Coda, and Coda is definitely the more enthusiastic of the two. Cal is more glued to me once I'm home. He sits next to me while I'm using my computer and follows me around everywhere, which Coda doesn't do, but boy is she happy to see me when I get home, haha.

My babies greet me too even when my husbands been home all day they are mommies boys! Which is totally fine with me... Godzilla is always right at the door when I get home. My husband says he like just "knows" when I'm home and goes to the door before I even get up the stairs to our apartment.... I don't have real kids but honestly I don't think a greeting can get better than two littles furlets meowing at you...

Psssh... Blacky isn't even in the house half the time, and when she is, it's on her terms. She's extremely independent. She'll call up the stairs to make sure I'm in my room; she doesn't want to make the trip upstairs for nothing.

Blaze always greets us, he'd be a little shadow if he wouldn't spray and thus, need to be confined.

One of both of my boys knows the sound of my car. As soon as I pull into my parking spot below the living window they appear on the window sill. They meow until I start up the stairs and when I open the door they are both right there. Book on the floor and MowMow on the back of the couch closest to the door. He demands head butts right away. Then Book flops on his back for belly rubs.

Both cats greet us when we get home or when we get up in the morning.

Yes, but it's because it's dinner time

Azalia sits by the window and waits for me. When she sees me, she signals to the other cats. By the time I open the door, they are all gathered near the door. Egypt vocally greets me, the others just kinda hang out nearby and wait to be petted.
