Kitties would rather do things themselves than have a big human do it for, or to, them.
Something Arianwen does is kiss me on my forehead, just at the top of my nose, then present her head so I can kiss her on the same spot.
Sometimes I hold my hand over my heart and tell her,"I love you, with all my heart". She's been softly saying,"I love you!", for a couple of months now, but she recently started putting her hands on her chest with it.
By the way, when she speaks English, most of the time it's almost like a little girl whispering, with a heavy foreign accent.
She can almost say "Treats!", but she has trouble forming the sounds clearly. I can understand her, though, 'cause I'm used to her 'accent'.
My sweet Arianwen is a little feline genius. I'm going to tell about something else she did this morning in another thread.
