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.
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.
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?
