The Love Languages of Cats: Kylo Ren

In celebration of Kylo Ren’s First Birthday (which is tomorrow – Valentine’s Day), we are featuring him today as we continue our series on the Love Languages of Cats. As you’ve learned by now, Sophie speaks love in very obvious ways that are easy to understand, while Caster is a bit more complicated in the way he communicates love. Kylo Ren – he falls somewhere in the middle.

The Love Languages of Cats: Kylo Ren

As mentioned above, Kylo isn’t quite as obvious in the way he shows love as Sophie is. He’s not big on being petted, and he doesn’t purr (only on rare occassions – usually food is involved somehow). He doesn’t give love bites or kisses either. So how does Kylo express his love?

  • He cuddles. Kylo is a big lover of cuddling. If someone is sitting or lying down somewhere, it won’t be long before he joins in. He has earned himself the title of “Bed Bug” because once he cuddles up in bed, there’s not much that’s going to get him up or make him leave. One way to run him off is by petting him – only on occasion will he allow you to pet him, which drives me crazy because he is the softest cat ever!
  • He follows us around. As my husband and I move about the house during the day, Kylo Ren is usually there, following us from room to room. Not only does he follow us around, he bolts from room to room like there is nothing more exciting than walking around the house with us.
  • He greets us at the door. When we get home from somewhere, Kylo is always there to greet us!
  • He always wants to play. This could be partly because he is still so young and kitten-like, but he always loves to play. Everything is a game to him. Playing and engaging with Kylo is definitely one of the best ways to bond with him.

The Love Languages of Cats: Kylo Ren

Overall, I’d say Kylo Ren’s love language is pretty easy to understand. You just have to remember that petting is usually off-limits ;D He is a sweet and silly boy for sure!

Do any of your cats object to pets like Kylo Ren? If so, what other ways do they enjoy being lovey?

    I love being petted. Binga enjoys it, but will bite. Boodie loves it, but she will run away from you if you try! You have to catch her and hold her down, but once you start, she purrs and enjoys it. She’s weird.

    Zorro loves to be petted, but I for me it’s often off-limits too. Purrs, Pixie

    Happy birthday to Kylo Ren tomorrow! I love his pretty face and floffy tail. And he is such a sweetheart 🙂 Goro loves to follow us around, too. He enjoys petting, but when it gets too much, he lets us know 🙂

    How fun that Kylo Ren’s birthday is on Valentine’s Day! I love how kitties are unique and all special. He clearly loves you both, always wanting to be near you. Neither kitty here greets us at the door unless they’re starving.

    Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Birthday Kylo Ren! It’s a lot of fun figuring out how to relate to and show (and receive!) love from a cat. Everybody is different and it’s wise to learn what makes each of us tick! You have done that with your crew…….My Mom had 17 years to figure me out (!) and is now learning the ways of Teddy which are ENTIRELY different. One thing stays the same though – WE LOVE TO LOVE!

    Hugs, Angel Sammy

    These are the most wonderful photos of Kylo Ren. Pretty much everyone here enjoys being petted…they just have certain spots that are okay to pet and some that are not. Astrid sends her wonderful and handsome husband a quadrillion kisses 💋 and all her love. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
