Arianwen talks a lot to me, both in 'cat language' and English. Of course, she's more eloquent expressing herself in cat language, which is mostly gestures and body language.
A good example happened, just a few minutes ago, when Arianwen was lounging on the top level of her cat tree. I was standing next to her, stooping over a little and telling her she is a very good cat, and I love her very much. She reached up and hugged my face, firmly but with claws retracted, giving me a little kiss.
I thought her sweet gesture was done, so I straightened back up. But Arianwen had not finished what she had to say. She placed a 'hand' on top of my head, without using claws, pulling my head back down so she could give me a long, soft forehead-butt, and then a quick nose-to-nose touch.
This all happened pretty quick, probably in a lot less time than it takes to read this narrative, but she said so much with a few gestures.
I think I've been made an honorary cat.
just had to share
Arianwen is sometimes a member the "Wrong Side of The Door" kitty clan, so I latch the bedroom door after I think she's settled in for the night. This morning, when I woke up, she pointed at the door and softly but very clearly said, "Open,", asking me to open the door for her.
