Smile We had an awesome affection milestone today!

Jasper is my 4 month old Himalayan kitten .. I'm sure some of you have seen some of my posts about him before. As a new cat owner with a little kitten, we can't get enough of all the awesome knowledge on this forum

Anyways, like a lot of kittens he's usually far too busy with important things like chasing catnip mice, climbing on my flatscreen/MacBook, and/or playing with one of the myriad of toys I've bought for him to have any time for snuggles! He goes limp like a ragdoll (were they bred from Himmies? I swear they look so similar too) when you pick him up, which I do semi-frequently to acclimate him to the concept. He'll usually meow politely when he wants down. It's cute. When he's sleepy he loves to have his chin and head scratched and will purr and headbutt like crazy if I walk over to wherever he's lying

Prior to today, though, I've always been the instigator of our cuddling sessions! So imagine my surprise when I was awoken this morning by a series of very intense headbutts from a fluffy purr machine! He kept nudging my face and hands and sticking his chin straight up in the air, which is his way of saying 'I want my chin scratched ASAP!' This continued for about twenty minutes of pure kittylove bliss! It's like he just figured out how to ask for snuggles haha it's so gratifying after taking care of him for about two months now to see him comfortable enough to come seek out some cuddling

Thank you!

I am extremely happy to report this has not been a one time occurrence either! I was just sitting on my couch talking with two of my friends when he trotted up, hopped in my lap, and started mashing his head into me, purring, and licking my face the fact that we had a particularly long session with 'Da Bird' right before that may have had something to do with it haha

It's like suddenly his affectionate behavior switch got flicked on! This is my first ever cat (and pet that I'm supporting on my own), as I'm sure I've mentioned, so all of this is particularly gratifying to experience!

Thanks for the shared sentiment everyone! I am happy to report that my little baby Himalayan fluff is becoming quite the lovebug. He's woken me for snuggles before his first meal consistently, and is becoming demonstrably more trusting and affectionate in general! I'm happy the fluff feels comfortable enough with me to do so. He's such a great little kitten.
